Thank you so so much for providing us with the most beautiful wedding venue. It was the easily the best day/weekend of our lives and it wouldn't of been the same without the amazing surroundings of the Bush Retreat. We chose it because we wanted our wedding to be a weekend away in the outdoors with all the special people in our lives and as soon as we saw the Rock Cathedral we knew it was the perfect place for us.
Our friends and family are still talking about it, and some have even said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, which is so lovely to hear!
Nadine and Josh are really friendly and doing a great job. Katrina was so helpful in the lead up and on the Friday before the wedding when we were setting up and the food on the night was delicious!
I was going to attach some photos for you but they 'exceed the 25mb limit' for emails so I might just add them to your Facebook page. We just received them from our photographer Jason Valler. He was amazing! He came to the rehearsal on the Friday afternoon and then was back the next morning taking photos of the Sunrise till about 2am around the fire pit! Everyone was very impressed!
It was an absolutely perfect weekend, and we couldn't have done it without your beautiful property, so thanks again!

"Kim and I absolutely loved the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat. The staff were friendly, and gave us plenty of room to set up the venue the way we wanted. They also helped us out when we forgot to print a few things. The campfire was huge, and a lot of fun - there were no issues get it alight and everyone enjoyed it. The rock cathedral where the ceremony took place had just been re-laid with wood sleepers and looked amazing; the view from the deck is impossible to describe, and we managed to get an absolutely amazing sunset before dinner. Katrina from Caterina, KVBR's preferred caterer, made a set of absolutely incredible meals and we highly recommend her"

Blair & I would like to thank the team at Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat for allowing us to hold our special day at this gorgeous retreat. We honestly could not have asked for anything more & so lucky to have the weather on our side.
All our Family & Friends had the most amazing time & could not believe that we had found such a spectacular place to hold a weekend celebration. All our guests commented on the retreat and said they felt like they were on a holiday and all felt very relaxed and loved how everything was on the property and could just sit back and enjoy their surroundings.
From the moment we pulled up in the car park on the Friday, Nadine & Josh were so very helpful and we could not of asked for better managers who were just so lovely & easy going.
We loved the new Bush Bar, & it was a massive hit with all our guests and we were even lucky enough to take some time to enjoy it too.
Louiza, To you I thank you for making it so easy and helping me along the way with questions and helpful information.
Both Blair & I feel so lucky to have be able to hold our Wedding Celebration at this beautiful place and we are hoping (fingers crossed) we get to come back one day to enjoy it once again.
Thank you & Best regards

Hi Nadine and Josh,
We just wanted to drop you a quick note before we head off on our honeymoon tonight to say a big thank you to you both. We had an amazing weekend, our guests had a fantastic time, and we left on Sunday feeling as though the wedding was a true representation of who we are. It was our perfect wedding weekend (rain, leeches, and muddy dog included!).
We could not have asked for anything more from the KVBR - starting with wine, cheese, a beautiful view and sunset on Friday, a one of a kind incredible ceremony venue, beautiful misty rain, absolutely delicious food, and a gorgeously warm fire and toasted marshmallows! And let's not forget the wombat rambling and munching it's way around our cabin!
James Day, our photographer, has posted some pictures on his Facebook and Instagram pages (https://www.facebook.com/#!/jamesdayweddings and http://instagram.com/jamesdayweddings#) which you would be more than welcome to share on the KVBR page. He was an amazing photographer and person, very unobtrusive and loved the location - it's now one of his favourites! If you need some more people for the "supplier" list, I am sure he would be happy to talk to you! Contact number 0410 553 686 and email email@example.com.
Thank you so much,

We knew from the first moment we stepped onto the property that this would be the place we would have our wedding. The Beautiful Rock Cathedral is so ethereal, with a spectacular view and a whole weekend of adventure. The paths around the property and Bon Fire are all unique. We loved that our wedding Day was tuned into the most memorable weekend of our lives, our family and friends stayed on the property and we were spoilt for food from the amazing Katrina Endean and her team. All our guests and photographer commented on the property and how spectacular it not only looked but felt to be there, the delicious food and how it was the best wedding they have ever seen. A especially huge thanks to Louiza who always made herself available to any request or question we had in the year leading up to our wedding, and Josh and Nadine for their help over the weekend, my family loved them.
Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat is the most stunning place we have ever seen and really made our wedding truly what we wanted it to be and reflect our personalities. thanks

Dear the team at kangaroo valley,
I would just like to say thank you so much for making the best wedding ever! Nadine & Joshua made us feel so welcome and let use do what we needed to make the wedding our own, Katrina and the catering team were amazing not too forget the all vegetarian food was the best. We were worried that our meat eating friends would not like the food but they really enjoyed it. Everyone complement on the food.
We also worried when it started to lightly rain for the ceremony but it actually made it more beautiful especially for the photos and it help loosing up the formality and get people partying. Needless to say I still have friends saying "best wedding ever" all the time, is a credit to you all once again thank you so much.

Our wedding at Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat couldn’t have been more wonderful. The sites exceptionally unique location with natural rock formations, amazing views and an invaluable sense of serenity brought such an inspiring feeling to the day. The caretakers were friendly, approachable, flexible and clear. They gave us the support we needed but also offered privacy and the freedom to employ our own creativity into the venue with minimal compromise. Katrina’s food was incredible and the service staff did a fantastic job. Having the ceremony, reception and accommodation all onsite gave us more time for celebration (which after all is what a wedding is all about!). The help of terrific staff together with the immensely beautiful surroundings of the retreat made our entire weekend an incredibly enjoyable experience from beginning to end!

We knew the Kangaroo Valley bush retreat was right for us the moment we saw it. The environment was fantastic and the ability to have all of our guests stay with us was a true bonus! The care takers and contact people are so helpful and really know ways to make your day run smoothly.
We got married in the amazing rock cathedral. There is truly no other ceremony location like it! Our guests loved the ability to stay a few days and our celebration continued for a fabulous post wedding day/night.
Having everything on site made it all so much easier and relaxed on our special day. The scenery made for incredible photos and memories.
We have recommended KVBR to a few friends and they are having their wedding at the retreat as they fell in love with it just as we did.
We would definitely recommend Kangaroo Valley bush Retreat to everyone and everyone that are planning their special day! It is a truly one of a kind venue!

The bush retreat was the first venue I found and fell in love with it instantly. My love for the venue was confirmed the day I visited. I was overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the bush retreat.
Our wedding could not have been more perfect, the weather was perfect, the rock cathedral took everyone's breath away and the view of the sun setting from the deck was amazing. Katrina catered our special day and the food was amazing. My guests were complimenting the venue and food the entire weekend. Nadine and Josh were superstars, leaving us to enjoy our weekend but always seemed to be there when we needed them. I could not have asked for a better wedding weekend. And I thank you all for helping my perfect day become a reality.

We had the most amazing weekend at Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat. To celebrate the night before and the morning after the ceremony with all our friends and family was just amazing. It turned what could have been just great into an incredible weekend so full of fun, laughter and love. The area around the bush retreat is just beautiful, it took everyone’s breath away and really transformed all our wedding pictures into something spectacular (We still can’t decide which ones we love the most!). Six months down the track and people are still talking about our wedding and the how amazing Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat is.
A massive thank you to Josh and Nadine for making us feel so welcome and being incredibly helpful. They made the whole weekend stress free and enjoyable.
A big thank you to Katrina and her team for making such wonderful food for both dinner and breakfast. They were all so professional yet friendly and not even slightly perturbed that they had to find us as we got photos taken to offer canapés and drinks!
It really is a wonderful place and hopefully we will get the opportunity to come back sometime.

Choosing KVBR for our wedding was an easy decision to make. The beauty of the venue stood out to us immediately, the fact the venue was rented as a whole for the weekend was an absolute delight and the owners and managers at KVBR completely sold the venue to us. It was the only venue we visited and we have no regrets with choosing KVBR for our wedding. From the onset Josh and Nadine were so helpful, they offered advice and assistance along the way. On the day itself they assisted us with last minute changes and made everything so effortless. Louiza was very patient with my endless questions!. KVBR is a venue that has the ability to be shaped to become whatever it is a couple desire. It provides a uniqueness that other venues can’t match, with a backdrop and location that can only be dreamed about. I can’t recommend the KVBR enough, words can’t describe how much we loved it, but the smiles on our faces and our guests, and the atmosphere that prevailed throughout the weekend prove how magical a venue KVBR is. Thank you so much Nadine, Josh and Louiza, we will never forget it.’

Dear Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat,
Our wedding was a very special day. One of the main reasons for that was your incredible location and facilities. From the moment we and the guests arrived we could feel the atmosphere of the place - relaxed, spectacular, exclusive and unique.
Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had been to. Most people were amazed to find themselves in a place of such natural beauty which still offers simple and accessible comfort in accommodation and reception spaces. The ceremony itself was in a place of such unsurpassed Australian bush style, such a wonderful sacred place in which to be married, amongst the massive boulders and fluttering eucalyptus leaves.
Drinks on the deck gave us and our guests a sense of grandeur and expansiveness with its surprising views and incredible outlook over the whole valley and river. And the fire pit and circle was the perfect end to an easy and fun wedding. We all had so much fun. My only complaint is that it wasn't enough time to enjoy all that the retreat has to offer.
Thank you, and very best regards,
