It is easy for us to know how professional, passionate and wonderful every wedding experience is at Mt Duneed Estate. We are regarded as one of the best in the industry for a reason. Our team thrive on receiving feedback from past couples. It helps us celebrate, recognise that hard work pays off, and of course see improvement. We are happy to share some recent feedback from our couples.
We worked with the lovely Christine for our initial consultation and we were well taken care of. She is a wealth of knowledge and we were blow away at the detail she knew about planning a wedding. She just seemed to understand the exact type of wedding we wanted and let us roam the grounds, sample the wine and answered any questions that we had about the day. We took on a lot of the recommendations that she gave us. She made us feel right at home from Day 1.
Jess took over from Bec when she went on maternity leave in late December and managed the event so gracefully on the night. The transition between management was effortless. Jess is an absolute super star and we are so glad that we had her on board. She worked with all of our vendors and guests seamlessly and was an absolute dream to work with.
The team at Mt Duneed allowed us to hold our dream wedding at such an amazing unique venue!! The food, the wine, the gorgeous views and the amazing Barrel Hall provided the perfect backdrop to have what is now unquestionably the happiest day of our lives. Thank you team!!!
Planning a wedding can be stressful, especially in the heart of covid. But even in this unpredictable covid climate, the team produced upmost professionalism and took on anything that was thrown their way. Thank you for making all our vendors feel so welcome, and allowing our closest family and friends to enjoy themselves to the fullest!!! We are so proud to be part of the Mt Duneed Estate wedding family and will definitely be returning to visit in the many years to come. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!!

Keeley, we just want to say a massive thank you for everything you and the MDE staff have done for us over the past year. Especially your support and understanding with our January date and having to postpone – every time I mention our story to someone they are in awe in how we found such an incredibly understanding and accommodating venue.

The booking process was well managed! Email communication was thorough and responsive, and we were able to organise a site visit in the same week we enquired. Christine explained everything in great detail and we really didn’t need to look any further – Mt Duneed was only the second venue we visited and we knew it was the one.
Jesse did an amazing job setting up for the wedding and we had so many compliments on the venue / styling / set up. We absolutely loved it and it was exactly what I wanted the space to look like. Jesse also ensured everything ran smoothly on the day and arranged for me to get an emergency bouquet from the florist after I forgot it at home and was in a state of panic. She was absolutely amazing in the lead up and on the day!
We are so happy we chose Mt Duneed to host our wedding! Everything from the pre-planning to the day of to the day after was managed so effortlessly by your team. Jesse was in constant communication with me in the lead up and helped to reassure me through the anxiety of the weeks leading up to the wedding and I cannot thank her enough for her support! We have had so many compliments on the wedding, the venue presentation, the service, the food, and the incredible wine of course! Mt Duneed we’re super flexible and supportive with COVID-19 obstacles and I highly recommend having your wedding hosted by this amazing venue and team!

Our booking experience with Mt Duneed started with Christine. Christine was perfect to work with. She was really clear about what Mt Duneed offered, was able to answer every question we had and was so understanding of our situation (with my then fiancé and I living in different cities). Also, she was extremely upfront and fair about the money side of things; negotiating on minimum numbers and agreeing to a fair position had we needed to reschedule. This gave us so much confidence in making our booking.
Jess was absolutely exceptional on the day. When we arrived we were running behind schedule but Jess didn’t flinch, making the necessary schedule adjustments to ensure everything continued to run smoothly. The bridal party and our vendors were looked after so well and our guests were blown away by the venue. Jess made sure we were always where we needed to be and that we were happy with everything. She was outstanding on the night.
Our wedding reception at Mt Duneed was perfect in every way and along with the help of our other vendors you created the most amazing memories for us that will last a lifetime. We are so incredibly thankful!

We had seen quite a few venues before Mt Duneed. What instantly appealed was how easy it was to get a time to view the venue and then how warm and helpful Christine was. We had complete confidence in her hospitality and knew our guests would have a great time.
Emails and phone calls were answered promptly. Everything was detailed. We didn’t have to worry about anything or do much.
Apparently, the carrots were as one guest quoted ‘the best dish they had ever tasted’. This guest also just returned from 15 years in Europe and dined in many Michelin star restaurants- rave review! Everyone we have spoken to so far has also commented on how much food there was and had great it all was.
We were so pleased that we chose Mt Duneed to get married. The staff were amazing, the venue looks exceptional and our guests had a great time. The only thing that would of have made it even better would be onsite accommodation.

We truly had the best day, everything felt seamless and enjoyable (I honestly didn’t think it was possible to feel that way as the bride on my wedding day!). Staff were so attentive, warm and inviting not only to us but to our guests throughout the day/night. We have had many guests also comment on how great the service was and how amazing the “vibe” was with such awesome, upbeat service from the venue. A personal example of this for me was approaching the bar for a glass of water to be met with the bartenders dancing (reeling in the fish haha – so awesome) – it truly has so much impact! We are so grateful to the entire team – couldn’t be happier with the service!
Both Ben and I agree the best decision we made in respect to our wedding was going with Mt Duneed Estate for the venue. Our experience from start to finish exceeded our expectations, we had the best day and have so many special memories to treasure forever. It truly wouldn’t have been the day it was without the team at MDE. Couldn’t be happier – highly recommend!

This experience was the deciding factor in booking with Mt Duneed. Christine was outstanding in providing us with all the information we needed to make an informed decision. We found that she had very prompt answers to all of our questions and made it as easy an experience as possible for us.
We could not recommend Mt Duneed Estate any higher. From the very beginning of our planning process right through to the end of our wedding night, the staff were incredibly helpful and made our day as easy and enjoyable as we had hoped it would be. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the space is and how delicious the food was. We are keeping our fingers crossed that we are invited to a wedding at Mt Duneed Estate, so we can enjoy it all over again!

The whole day was incredible. Not once did we feel overwhelmed or rushed. Bec was so supportive and relaxed throughout the whole night. The wait staff were lovely and so helpful throughout the night, nothing was an issue for anyone and they were so courteous throughout the evening. The night was so perfect, right from the start to the end. Everyone commented on how lovely the spaces were and how beautiful the night was, its a real credit to the entire staff and space at Mt Duneed.
Mt Duneed is such a special place to us. It is such an incredible place where they really care about their couples. A super big Thankyou to Bec! She is a real asset to Mt Duneed, she was so supportive throughout the whole planning process which really made all the difference when trying to plan a wedding through all the COVID restrictions.
