Sue and the team at Gum Gully were outstanding. From the day we booked the venue, Sue was happy to answer all our questions, make suggestions for the ceremony, offer advice on the running of the day and accommodate our fully vegan, cocktail wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and Sue and Simon's attention to detail and calm demeanor allowed us to truly enjoy the day without any stress. Gum Gully was our first choice of venue and the day was everything we wanted and more. Thanks to Sue, Simon and the rest of the team for your help in making our day perfect.

Gum Gully was the perfect venue for our garden wedding and reception. From the moment we met the owners we knew that this was somewhere special. Gum Gully staff went out of their way to ensure our wedding went smoothly and calmly. All the guests commented on how fantastic and interesting every corner of the venue was and how helpful and friendly the staff were. This was perfect for a kid-friendly wedding with different areas holding different parts of the day perfectly- especially the ceremony in the sunken, light-filled garden. It was all a gift to us that we won't forget.

Check the photos - this venue is just bueatiful and has everything you could want. Indoor ceremony option, fantastic outdoor option. You can rest assured that Sue and Simon the owers are amazing people who will accommodate every need for your big day. They changed our entire setting only 2 days before our wedding due to covid, and they made such an amazing effort to have our venue set up just how we wanted. This genuinely saved our day and their relaxed and caring attitudes gave us so much comfort during our absolute roller coaster of a week. Thank you Sue and Simon so much - we had the most amazing day and you two were such a huge part of that. We cannot thank you enough.

Thank you Lauren & Alex for your wonderful words, It certainly was a crazy time for us all before the first lock down, not knowing if we could even have a wedding!! But I am so happy that it all worked out for you guys, and it was a beautiful day :)

What an amazing time we had at Gum Gully! When we first viewed the venue we fell in love with the place and felt like we where at home. The whole team made us feel so important and like family and all of our guests couldn’t stop talking about how fitting the venue was for us. Thank you so much Sue, Simon and team for making our day so memorable. It is a day we will forever cherish and our wedding wouldn’t have been so amazing if it wasn’t for you guys! If you’re after a down to earth family run venue do yourself a favour and check these guys out as I’m sure you won’t be disappointed

Sue and Simon and the team at Gum Gully Farm are amazing, the venue is rustic and beautiful and we knew as soon as we attended an open day we would get married there, it was the first and only venue we needed to see. Sue and Simon and the team were so accommodating with all of our requests, they work so hard to ensure the day is perfect and we couldn’t have imagined celebrating our day anywhere else. Can’t praise their effort or recommend them enough! We now hope someone we know has a wedding there so we can go back and visit!

Thank you Rachel, we're so happy that you enjoyed your day with us :) Wishing yourself & Dave all the very best for the future. Hopefully we will get to see you again soon! Sue & Simon

We stayed at Gum Gully Farm after our wedding at the venue and it was the best decision. To end the night relaxing in our room and not having to go anywhere we had all of the things we needed at the venue the whole time.

Everything was a breeze with these guys. Beautiful venue and they went out of their way to make the whole experience relaxed and enjoyable. Can not thank them enough. Simon was amazing and ran around the farm with us to get photo's that were just amazing. nothing was too much effort. they put together the venue with all the decorations, flowers, lights, photos etc. without us having to lift a finger and decorated the cake to make it look truly fantastic. Everyone said how relaxed and friendly the staff and venue were - totally recommend this venue if you are looking for a relaxed, laid back, rural style wedding venue. would do it all again with them exactly the way it was.

Gum Gully Farm absolutely captured us. We fell in love with its atmosphere and charm. Sue, Simon and all of the staff were just excellent and could not have been more helpful and easy to deal with. Our day went without a hitch thanks to their assistance. The food was amazing and we received great feedback all night on the meal from Yarra Valley Catering. This is the perfect wedding venue, would highly recommend!

12 Apr 2019

This venue is stunning. Sue, Simon and the rest of the team that run it are simply the best. They really go above and beyond and make sure they day runs smoothly. They were on hand when we had car troubles (I was 30 minutes late to the ceremony) but they ensured that we still ran on time for the reception but also had time for some photos before it got too dark. We couldn't be happier that we had our wedding here & will always recommend it to anyone looking for a venue.

There are no words to describe this breathtaking venue, and the amazing owners and staff who made our wedding the perfect day that it was. The venue is stunning and the atmosphere was just incredible. We had a really nice day, but even if we hadn't, it's one of those venues that you know is going to look perfect in rain hail or shine. Sue and Simon really went above and beyond to make our day perfect, always in communication, responding to all of our questions, giving advice on how to make the most of everything and coordinating everything on the day, even all the guests kept commenting on how unbelievably nice the staff were. We had the misfortune of booking a bus for guests at the end of the night that didn't show up, Sue and Simon let us stay indoors to keep warm, organised cabs for us which was not easy out in Silvan that late, they were just incredibly helpful and really saved us in a bad situation. Other than that though it was the perfect day, I couldn't fault anything.

Thank you for your kind words Shara, we are happy that you had a great day with us and thankful that we got you all home safely on the night! All the best :)

Such a beautiful venue. First one we saw, and we didn’t look any further. Perfect for that intimate rustic wedding! The owners/management were a pleasure to work with, very accommodating, they also made the whole process a breeze. Food was amazing too!
