FLOWERDALE ESTATE REVIEW (4.7STARS)
Nicole: Our wedding day was everything we had dreamed of and more, and this is all thanks to the wonderful team at the Flowerdale Estate. From the initial viewing, the emails and phone calls back and forth, the change in wedding date (thanks COVID), the setup, your incredible service and attention to detail on the day and throughout all aspects of planning, to having Maria and Demmi on the dance floor with us at the end of the night. Everything the lovely Flowerdale Estate team had done for us helped make the day one we will NEVER forget.We can’t wait to come and visit you guys again soon.If you are looking for a getaway location or one of the best wedding venues I have ever come across, then look no further. The stunning sceneries are perfect for natural and candid wedding photography as well. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts
Pascoe: We had our wedding at Flowerdale Estate earlier this year and cannot recommend them highly enough. Initially we were sold by how beautiful the venue looked, the photo locations on property were phenomenal, food and drink packages were reasonable and included better drinks (especially beer and wine selection) than we’d seen at most venues. The venue accommodation also meant that it would be easy for guests to have a great time and not need to worry about the logistics of travel at the end of the night. The stunning homestead also allowed our Melbourne wedding photographer to capture stunning getting ready photography of us in the morning, highly remommended!
Stacey: I cannot recommend Flowerdale Estate enough. We had our wedding at Flowerdale last month and it was absolutely amazing our day was so perfect I don’t even know where to start, the estate is stunning and the staff were so amazing. Our guests all absolutely loved it everyone was so friendly and the food was next level. I can’t thank Claire, Maria and the rest of the staff enough for making our day so perfect
