We love this place and the people around it
Our wedding day was 8th of March. This place is immaculate. Gave us so much freedom to do what we want on the venue. Food and drinks was amazing, we had so much food. Our money is all worth it. Yvonne and Aaron are always accommodating. They gave us all the support we need. I will never get tired to posting a review for this place because we are so happy for what the have help and given to us. We know this is their business but they never made us feel that they are just in for our money. So love this place and the people around it. All the best to all. I really missed this place.
You help us created a perfect day. Thank you very much.
Fantastic communication at a well-kept venue
I have yet to have my big day (it is later in November) however already the team at Avalon are 5 stars in my books! Fantastic communication, a beautiful and well kept venue as well as reasonable prices have made our dreams a reality.
I cannot recommend them enough, such an amazing place and seriously so excited for our wedding at Avalon!
The Wedding Planners found solutions for every little problem
Absolutely incredible venue. The owners are very lovely and very extremely helpful. Denise is an amazing gem. She found solutions to every problem and was cheerful and lovely throughout our forgetful process.
The food is incredible. Great sizes and tastes. And the location speaks for itself. Stunning.
I could not imagine my wedding day anywhere else.
Being able to use the cottage to get ready was fantastic,
and the morning wedding platter was appreciated too!
This is a stunning venue in gorgeous surrounds. The gardens are lovely and the place is obviously so loved. The personal touches like seating in the garden, the gazebo they built and the light up tree just make for both special photos but also just lovely gardens to explore. Being able to use the cottage to get ready for the big event was fantastic, love the little touches they have in there, very comfortable and pretty room. The other guest accommodations were bigger than expected and each with their own ensuite is awesome. The beds were comfy and while the theme was present, it was not over the top. Fantastic venue for small-ish weddings. Wonderful staff, great range of food. Cannot believe how much there was to eat throughout the day! A platter for the bridal party before and after the reception was appreciated.
It was an amazing ceremony. The garden was absolutely gorgeous and is well taken care of so you photos look stunning! The decorating of the Gazebo was phenomenal and was more than I could have hoped.
Our guest all mentioned how amazingly beautiful the venue was.
It is the staff (and possible the Ice cream bar) that makes this place special
My best friend got married at Avalon Castle yesterday and it was perfect. The venue is stunning, with photo opportunities around every corner.
The on-site accommodation was comfortable, with all necessities one might need, and plenty of room for the bridal party and close family/friends. The food served was delicious, and the ice cream bar at the end of dinner was such an amazing idea and loved by everyone.The staff here is what makes this place special. They go above and beyond to ensure the day runs smoothly and will help with anything you might need. I cannot recommend Avalon Castle highly enough. I am so thankful to Yvonne, Aaron and all the staff for helping my best friend have the most magical and special wedding day.
They genuinely enjoy sharing this special day with everyone involved, and by the end they felt like family.
From the moment we stepped out of the car on our first tour
Avalon Castle -- what a treasure this place is! From the moment we stepped out of our car for a viewing, we knew this place was for us. They took the stress out of everything, nothing is ever too hard for them, Aaron Yvonne and the staff at Avalon are so attentive and put their heart in to what they do! They made our wedding day an absolute dream for us and we will forever be thankful and be forever raving on about them! Food is so homely and hearty.
Prices are SO reasonable, and the onsite accommodation was priceless! All in one wedding venue!
We and all our guests absolutely loved it! Thank you
