Booked Whole Venue Exclusivity at Bonny

Alyss A.
Booked The Hall at The Hall at Welcome to Brunswick
We have the best experience with Alex, Amy and their team. Less than 2 mons to prep our wedding became possible because of Amy’s assistance in all our queries and needs. And the food is fantastic! We could not ask for more and would love to celebrate with them again
Mitchellina R.
Booked Albert Room 2 at View Melbourne
We had moved from the Albert Room to The Boulevard Room 1 due to my guests increasing in number for my wedding reception. Shavaughn Galloway, the venue manager, immediately assisted me in sorting out my venue and she has been very patient in listening to what we wanted and entertained our specific dietary requirements. My guests and I enjoyed the food! They were raving about the striploin (which was highly talked about) and the dark chocolate ganache. My fiance, now husband and guests had a good time. Special thanks to Shavaughn and her team again for going above and beyond to assist us with our wedding reception. I highly recommend the place for any special events you may have and if you wish to have a larger number of guests, I'm pretty sure they can accomodate your needs and open the rests of the boulevard rooms. In addition, the view at night at the balcony was superb. We had a mini photoshoot outside with the lovely city lights. Overall I am happy and satisfied with the service and would highly recommend the view melbourne for any special or corporate events you may have.

Booked Private Dining Room at Locanda Restaurant & Bar
Great food. Staff were so helpful and lovely throughout the whole planning process and on the night. Great space, it has a very neutral ambience so we were able to decorate it to look more "wedding" and it was beautiful. Food was awesome, all my guests loved the food.
