THE GARDENS HOUSE REVIEW (4.6STARS)
Nhan: Great romantic venue if the weather is on your side! I have read some terrible experiences from some bridal parties. My experience was on the contrary was positive, however as a guest I didn’t deal with the venue management. Atlantic Group as the catering company was great in every sense. They were professional and attentive. I remember the touching gesture of the manager (Vicky?Vanessa?) bringing a tissue to a teary maid of honor in the middle of her speech.
If the weather is on your side, there are few venues in Melbourne which can beat this place for its romantic and photogenic appeal. It is set on a green patch of lawn, surrounded by beautiful, large, tall trees, adjacent to an old cottage. We were lucky it was a beautiful day. The bridal party can get stunning Melbourne wedding photography and videography done effortlessly. As it is outdoor, I wonder what happens if it is too hot, or windy, or rainy, or cold – which is always a possibility in Melbourne.
Parking is a hassle though as there was no dedicated parking area for guests. You have to take your chance with all other Botanical Garden visitors or hail a cab/Uber instead.
Rob: To the Team at the Atlantic Gardens House, my new wife and I would like thank you for providing us with the next time of our lives!! The experience that surrounding our wedding reception at the Gardens House was spectacular and second to none!! The feedback from all our guests was amazing. The event managers and supervisors made the occasion even more fantastic if that’s possible. Our Melbourne wedding videographer, captured plenty of stunning photos of us on the day.
A BIG THANK YOU for an amazing experience.
Proud to recommend your company to anyone.
Shelly: Came here for a wedding. Very beautiful place and the venue is great for small weddings. We quite enjoyed ourselves and Peter Rowland was the caterer. They were ok.
