Just a short note to inform you about the fantastic night we enjoyed at Oakville House. From the first discussion, the professionalism was very evident. During the ensueing meetings nothing was ever a problem or an inconvenience, which made planning a dream. From the time we walked into Oakville House, Cheryl and myself enjoyed full attention from all your staff, making our experience a total enjoyment.The positive feedback from all our friends and guests was nothing short of brilliant. Everybody commented on the quality and quantity of the food. The quality was first class and the comments of ” I can’t fit another mouth full in ” echoed with what excellent food we experienced.
We would not hesitate recommending Oakville House to anyone that wants to enjoy a truly memorable and wonderful function.

Graham Metclafe – 6/6/09

Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding. I received a letter from my Uncle today, a retired pastry cook and caterer, who really loved the venue and raved about the whole wedding. One of our photographer’s loved the atmosphere saying it was not big and cold like many others but cozy and friendly like in his home country, Germany. The log fire and lounge area were a wonderful addition to the big family home atmosphere.
I will definitely recommend Oakville House to other Mothers of the Bride.

Roz and Barry Hancock on behalf of their whole wedding team

Sorry this has taken so long to get to you but things have been pretty hectic since the wedding.

Bob & I just wanted to thank you both immensely and your fabulous staff – especially Paul the head waiter for the great job you did for our wedding.

WE couldn’t get over how well we were looked after and how everything was how we wanted it. The Food, Les, was superb – although I couldn’t eat it all!! The decorations were perfect Jo, the atmosphere was awesome..we had an amazing day and so did all our guests and everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and the service of all you guys.

Although the day flew by and the nerves were there constantly it was the best day of our lives! So we just wanted to say a small thankyou for all you did to make our day as special as it was and we would recommend you to anyone that is looking for a superb venue for their wedding!

I hope its still keeping you busy and you still love what you do!

Could you please give Paul a special thankyou from Bob & I please and I have included a few wedding pics that our photographer took..I will also send you out a special thankyou did to show you what a great job he did and for you to enjoy..

Thankyou once again, we appreciated everything you did!

Bob and Belinda Martin

Thanks for helping to make our son Damien Smith and Elisha Smith (22-8-09) wedding such a wonderful day. Comments to us have been excellent.

Daelle and Don Monteilli

Hope you have recovered from your very busy long weekend of weddings. I wanted to say thankyou so much for making Amanda and Haydn’s wedding day (Sunday 4th October 2009) so memorable.From the very first time we visited your beautiful property you made us feel so welcome. You have a way of making each bride and groom and their guests feel unique. After looking at quite a few reception venues we knew yours was the one we wanted to book. Sunday night proved we made the right choice. All the way through the planning nothing has been too much trouble and you have responded to any enquiry we had, promptly. So many of our guests commented on Sunday night about how professional but also friendly your staff were. Everything just seemed to happen flawlessly and on time.I have had guests ring and message me since saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
We were very grateful for the hospitality, detail to guests’ food allergies and all round great fun that we had. The only regret was it went too fast! I’m telling anyone else I know with a wedding come up to book with you , so we can come back.

Jaine Wilkinson

We don’t know how to thank you enough for what was the very best wedding we have ever been to. How amazing that the best wedding we have ever been to was our own, I wonder how many people could honestly say that?

The food was incredible and your gentle reminders that I needed to eat were very helpful. Your staff always ensured that Vaughan and I and our guests had a drink in our hands and yet without any interruptions. The whole night was just absolutely amazing, thank you for a relaxing, fun, memorable night – we really haven’t been able to stop talking about the whole night.

I’m sure I’ll remember a million more things which made our night the best ever, every little while either Vaughan or I remember something else which makes us laugh, the totally relaxed atmosphere helped us to really enjoy everything and thats the reason I think we keep remembering the good things, because you and your fantastic staff took care of absolutely everything else!!

The best ever.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Jenni and Vaughan Vogel – 11/7/10

I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the perfect day we had at Oakville house on the 5/9/10. Everything was perfect I could not have asked for anything to have been done differently. Comments from our guests were:

– How intimate everything was.
– How friendly and helpful all of you were on the day.
– The food was unbelievable, – the first wedding we have been to where we didn’t have to stop at mackas on the way home, for once you could see what you were eating and it was delicious.
– The grounds were beautiful.

I cant wait to see our photo’s.

Once again Thank you for helping top make our day run as smoothly as it did.

Sharlene & Scott McRae

We would like to express our great appreciation for our wonderful wedding reception. You and your staff made our day even more special. You were all friendly, attentive, extremely professional and made our guests feel welcome and at home. You made the evening run smoothly and created a relaxed and warm atmosphere in which everyone could feel at ease. You were attentive to all our needs, even those we didn’t even think of, which allowed us to enjoy our wedding without having to worry about “what was happening next”. You attended to every details. This was also greatly facilitated by Steven the DJ. He also did an incredible job of making the even run smoothly and spontaneously.

Les, your meal was delicious, just the right quantity and timed well. The drinks were abundant and your service impeccable. You and your friendly, helpful staff were quietly attending to us and our guests, always appearing when something was needed.

We would like to thank you for making us feel at ease when we arrived and for guiding us through each step of the day. Joanne, you were always in the background making sure everything was going well.

When we were first looking at reception venues, we found it difficult to find one that understood our needs for an informal, simply wedding  without all the “trimmings”. You both allowed us the freedom to have our reception our way, whilst adding just the right amount of those “trimmings”, creating an elegance which made the day even better.

We have had numerous comments from our family and friends about how wonderful our wedding was and how great our venue is. “Where did you find this place?”, “The day could not have been better”, “Best wedding i have been to in a long time”, “What an amazing day”, “We felt so comfortable and at home”, “The food and service were great”. Thanks to you!

We would highly recommend Oakville House to any couple planning a wedding. Please feel free to use this letter as a testimonial for your venue and personal service.

Thanks again.
Warm Regards,

Larry and Joy Small

I really don’t know how Todd & I can ever thankyou enough for all of your help & support leading up to & on the day of our wedding.
From the first time we visited Oakville House we were taken by how much it felt like a home. You both made us feel so welcome in your friendly & professional approach & we knew that we would be able to rely on you for anything we needed.
From bringing my flower girl to visit, to supplying Coopers Red for my Dad, no request was denied & having that assurance from you meant that we could really kick back & enjoy our day with nothing to worry about.
So many guests commented to us on everything from the fire place to the food & so many told us it was  the best wedding they had been too.
Tood & I truly wish you both all the best & thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so wonderful.

Todd & Kirsti Mackae xxx
