I would like to pass on my sincerest thanks for the absolutely stunning High Tea you put on for my group. The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. Your staff bent over backwards to ensure our experience was memorable and nothing was too much trouble.

I would have no hesitation to recommend your establishment for any other function I may come in contact with and please pass onto your staff a huge thanks for such a wonderful day.

To whom it may concern 

We just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the wonderful service all of your staff provided in the lead up to our wedding and on our special day :)

Our wedding was perfect! We had an amazing day. All of our guests commented on how perfect everything was, from grounds to service to food. Everyone had a wonderful time!

In particular, we want to say a very special thank you to Annette, Vanessa, Chef, Timeka and the wait/kitchen/bar staff who went above and beyond to help make our day everything we dreamed of!

All of the staff helped us to create a day that reflected our family. In particular Annette Vanessa and Chef did more than their jobs required and on more than one occasion their compassion, helpfulness, understanding and generosity in their time and making changes to help make our day perfect brought tears to my eyes.

We have and will continue to recommend Woodlands to everyone.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience and perfect day!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of celebrating our marriage at Woodlands of Marburg. After an 18 month engagement, we witnessed a number of staff changes which resulted in the excellent company of Kimberley (wedding coordinator) and Nell (operations manager) to host our day. Under the guidance of both Kimberley & Nell, our wedding day was executed to perfection. Not a single complaint from our family and friends, and everyone left commenting on how lovely the day was. Some of the outstanding elements of our stay at Woodlands of Marburg included: Meals - we're delivered to all tables in a timely manner and the majority of plates returned to the kitchen empty. All meals (including our guests) were delicious and were received hot. Rooms - tidy, clean and comfortable. We hired the Poinciana Board Room for the bridal preparation, which prevented our Bridal Suite from being bombarded with the multitude of suppliers and gave more space to work in. Grounds - immaculate and tidy, the grounds provided a range of spectacular photography locations.
More about the specifics of our day: My wife and I were married in the historic and heritage listed Chapel. Quaint and cozy, the chapel comfortably held approximately 80 of our guests. Despite it's size, it provides fantastic acoustics when playing music, and a microphone is not required for this location. Whilst our wedding party were off around the grounds, being chauffeur-driven by Kimberley in her little golf buggy, our guests were treated to some spectacular canapés and drinks on the Western Lawn. One thing to mention, drinks were served at the bar in the Mansion, not on the lawn like we had envisaged. This was not a massive issue, and may have in fact slowed the consumption of alcohol (and in turn our bar tab!).
After finalising our bridal party photos, we met our guests in the Marquee. Due to our numbers, we had the marquee shortened to 3/4 length, which was a perfect size. The room looks spectacular under the warmth of the lit chandeliers, and the tables were elegantly dressed to our expectation. Nell took over the reigns from Kimberley in the running of our reception from this point forward. Nell and her team of waiters kept our glasses charged the entire evening, were suitably dressed and professional throughout. All of our meals (including those of our guests) were delicious and hot. It was great to look up while we were eating, to find that all of our guests had been served their meal. This is a credit to the staff who ran the event on the evening. Prompt, efficient and professional are appropriate terms to describe how the reception was ran.
A special thanks must go to Kimberley for the continuous and efficient communication with my wife, in the lead up to our wedding. She was instrumental in ensuring the day ran very smoothly. I must admit, I read a number of negative comments from previous customers who held their event at Woodlands of Marburg earlier this year, which left me somewhat apprehensive and concerned. After meeting with Kimberley and the staff at Woodlands, our fears were allayed and our wedding was a complete success.
