The Woolshed absolutely exceeded our expectations which had already been set pretty high from the get go. The biggest stand out was every single staff member had impeccable customer service. As an anxious bride, I was somewhat demanding but especially as the event got closer, Natasha, our planner was always there for reassurance and to answer questions. Their diversity in packages meant we were able to have an affordable reception. Our wedding at The Woolshed was everything we dreamed of and more.

The Woolshed  

Hi Natalie! Thank you for your kind words. Here at The Woolshed we believe no bride is too demanding especially when it comes to her wedding day! It was a pleasure working with you to create your special day, we wish you all the best with your marriage.

From the very first email, to our final exit the staff at the Woolshed made our wedding a night to remember! Natasha, their wedding coordinator, made us feel valued, at ease and informed every step of the way, and went above and beyond to ensure our requests were catered. This venue is absolutely amazing if you’re looking for the perfect aesthetic, the best tasting food and a great place to get down and boogie. Cannot recommend them enough!

The Woolshed  

Hi Angelica! Thank you for your kind words. It was an absolute pleasure being a part of your beautiful wedding. We hope to host you for another event in the future! The team here at The Woolshed wish you all the best in your marriage.

Thank you so much to Natasha and the Woolshed to help make our day so special. It was an emotional but beautiful day and night. Everybody commented on how delicious the food was and how cosy they felt at the Woolshed. We had such a fantastic time and appreciated everything Natasha and everyone working at the Woolshed did for us on the night and leading up to the wedding. You guys helped my vision in my head come to life and for that we thank you.

I could not recommend The Woolshed more for a reception venue! From our very first point of contact, our experience with the team was fantastic. Hannah, the events coordinator, is a wonder to work with and went above and beyond to make our dream wedding come true. The food was outstanding (we had alternate drop entree and main with a grazing table to start) and everything went off without a hitch thanks to all the great staff behind the scenes. The Woolshed is such a versatile space and we were really able to make it our own with the styling. We all had the best time and I can't thank you guys enough!!

When we first stepped into the woolshed we knew this was where we wanted to get married!! From the first step to the last everything was done exactly as we wanted. The food was absolutely incredible, everything was set as we asked. We could not fault this place at all.. it was an absolutely magical night. One we will never forget!!

It was a dream to have our wedding reception at The Woolshed. The whole team, especially Hannah our events Manager, made our planning of the day and the whole experience wonderful. It was easy to plan such a big event with such a professional and understanding function centre. The team went above and beyond in order to allow us to have the best day possible! Not too mention the food! The food was incredible - especially the grazing table which was a highlight for many of our guests. We wouldn't change anything about our reception at The Woolshed - we loved it!

The team at the Woolshed / Fine Spun Catering were great to deal with for our special day. They were professional and took us through everything involved in hosting a wedding. The food quality was amazing and a number of our guests have said it's by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Thanks for making our day that extra more special. - Luke & Veronica

Could not recommend the woolshed highly enough to hold your wedding reception. Hannah and the whole team at the woolshed were so helpful and nothing was ever to much of an issue no matter how big or small. Our day was everything we could have hoped for and more! On the night the team were professional and always there to cater to our guests. Thankyou to the wonderful team at the woolshed.

Our experience at The Woolshed was amazing from day one. We wanted a winter wedding, so we fell in love with the warm, cosy environment straight away. We were welcomed by the beautiful Hannah, who was kind, professional and more than helpful throughout the whole experience. Everything ran smoothly and our guests had nothing but positive things to say. Very highly recommended.

2 Jun 2018

I absolutely loved working with the passionate and knowledgeable team at The Woolshed. Nothing was a bother and they were filled with helpful suggestions and ideas along the way. They worked seamlessly with our vendors and the catering was absolutely beautiful. The venue space was stunning and had various areas for guests to utilise on the night. Our evening ran so smoothly and we could not have been happier with how everything came together. I have visited The Woolshed numerous times since our wedding and am always impressed with their hospitality

2 Mar 2018

If I could give more stars I would! We searched high and low for a wedding venue that was just what we wanted and fit in our budget and when we found the Woolshed we were both immediately sold. The spaces are beautiful but casual and offer something unique that nothing else we'd looked at had. Hannah, Greg and the team were amazing from the first meet to the wedding night and nothing was too much trouble. Their communication and knowledge was great which is so reassuring when you don't know how to plan a wedding and the food was absolutely fantastic (and plentiful!). Everyone raved about the food and the atmosphere. We had several dietary requirements and they were so diligent in making sure that those people received the correct meals. Hands down the best vendor across the whole wedding. We are now regulars in the cafe too.

18 Nov 2017

We would like to thank Hannah, Greg and the Woolshed team for all of their hard work, flexibility and commitment to making our wedding day such a success. Working with the team was a breeze, they were passionate, flexible and went out of their way to make our day special. Everything went without a hitch. The venue looked fantastic, the food outstanding and the table service was spot on. All of our guests still tell us it was the best Wedding they have ever been to. We highly recommend The Woolshed to anyone who is looking for a wedding or event venue, you will be very happy.
