Our Wedding on the 9th of August was a spectacular Winter wedding. Jack and I loved the effort all the staff went to into making our day just perfect. They even managed to please my parents which is a hard thing to do! We loved the food and the room looked exactly how I pictured it. Thank you Wattle Park Chalet for making my dream wedding a reality! You made us into the happiest couple in the world.

After my wedding reception at Wattle Park Chalet, I have been asked, if you could change anything about the day what would you change? Absolutely nothing! It was everything I have ever wanted for my wedding day and Nick and I couldn't be more happy with everything. The food was amazing, the venue looked so grand and beautiful and was a great setup, all the staff members were so wonderful and friendly and everything went so perfect it's almost too good to be true. Allen was a huge help throughout the planning process and went over and above for us. Our whole experience was something we will never forget. Thank you so much Allen and the rest of the team for giving us the wedding of our dreams.

Having my wedding reception at Wattle Park chalet was an absolute fairytale come true. The food was amazing, atmosphere perfect and the day ran so smoothly thanks to the amazing staff that I could simply enjoy my day! I would strongly recommend this venue to anyone who wants their wedding to be held at a beautiful location surrounded by parkland. The staff were really helpful and even had different businesses they'd worked with and could recommend, which made planning a wedding a lot let stressful and the people they had worked with before we're great too. I wouldn't have had my day any other way! Thank you

Thank you for your brilliant service
