Wedding Testimonials

quote We had our wedding at The Red Barn last weekend; it was the most amazing day despite the odd drop of rain. To anyone who is considering this as a wedding venue, book it as soon as you can. Lance and Bridget are awesome and an absolute pleasure to deal with they go the extra mile on almost everything!! This venue is amazing value for money, and you are crazy to consider anything else.
Lake Karaprio Lodge is where we stayed on wedding night and also where the girls got ready for wedding day – stunning surroundings and flawless hospitality.

quote On the 26th of November, 2016, Greg and I had the BEST DAY OF OUR LIFE – and this was so much credited to Kelly, Bridgette and the Red Barn team. Choosing the venue for our reception in February 2016 started out stressful but as soon as we entered the bard, we fell in love.

The grounds, the vibe, the character and the rustic beauty of the Barn blew us away and we were set on this venue. Throughout the whole planning process, Kelly was exceptional.

Her efficiency, smiley nature, expertise and advice and ability to help accommodate our requirements in any way, shape or form were faultless. We always looked forward to catching up in person with Kelly and sharing with her the development of our decoration ideas, timeline for the day, catering and drink requirements etc. nothing was ever a problem and my creative spirit was allowed to be given free reign!

The day could not have been more perfect. From the amazing canapes created by their new in-house chefs, through to the menu that we could design ourselves, the food stood out no end. So many guests commented that the canapes they had were the “best they had ever had at a wedding. The risotto balls rocked!”

Our florist did an exceptional job working with the Red Barn to set up the suspended ladder with greenery above the bridal table and also all of the centrepiece vases and other floral decorations throughout the barn.

The bar and wait staff were all very helpful given the sheer number of guests we had and the little touch of fresh canapes upstairs for the bridal table, plus our own private waiter for drinks was a nod to the red barn’s accommodating nature.

We even got Kelly on the dance floor with our band!

All in all, the day was magical, ran amazingly and Kelly was just the best. We will be forever grateful to the Red Barn, you truly made our day what it was – captivating & full of love, laughter and fun!

quote  Dear Bridgette,

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day at The Red Barn so wonderful. It was absolutely fantastic and our guests keep telling us what an amazing time they had. You were so helpful during the lead-up, nothing was too much trouble and you were happy to go the extra mile for us which we really appreciated. One of our guests has told us that ours is the first wedding that has made her reconsider her "running away to Vegas" idea because it was such a beautiful setting. Another said that the catering was the best that she's ever experienced at a wedding. The outdoor dance floor in front of the big open fire was another highlight for all of us and the different areas that people could hang out in is also really great. The vibe of the whole place is really special.
Many, many thanks,

Di and Ben
