Hi Adam + Liz,

 

Wow. Thanks so much for your help over the weekend. The wedding was f**king amazing! We had an absolute blast and everyone we spoke to was just blown away. Everyone was just raving about the venue. Hard to beat the sunset deck with the weather we had!

 

Will definitely be recommending the venue to anyone that asks!

 

Cheers,

Jess + Jemma

"When we got engaged 2 years ago, we had 5 venues to visit. KVBR was first on the list, and it only took several minutes into the tour for us to decide that it was the perfect place for our wedding. We knew we didn't need to look at any other venues as we immediately fell in love with KVBR. The staff have always been so helpful, supportive and understanding the entire 2 years leading up to the big day. Each time we visited for an inspection, the onsite managers were always so friendly and accommodating. All our guests absolutely enjoyed their stay and all complimented on the venue that we chose. Our celebrant, videographers and photographer all praised KVBR and even told us it was a highlight wedding of the year for them. We are so glad we chose KVBR, one of the best decisions we've ever made. Can't even think of any other place that could give us even half the happiness and satisfaction as KVBR did. Thank you so much to KVBR, we are forever grateful. We hope someone we know gets married there in the future so we can have another reason to spend 3 special and memorable days there. God bless KVBR."

 

Yes we are definitely willing and hoping to come back again, we love the KVBR and we love Kangaroo Valley! ❤ 

 

Much love,

We have had many wonderful comments about our August wedding at KVBR. The venue was just perfect for two avid bushwalkers and it absolutely shone in the Winter sunshine. So many of our guests thought that it was the best wedding they’d ever been to.  Having time before and after the wedding day to spend with our family and friends was so relaxing... more than a wedding, it was an event!

Thank you for everything you did to ensure everything ran smoothly. From our initial visit until we left we felt we were in good hands. Your patience in our date changes and the flexibility in all the arrangements was greatly appreciated. You all not only operate with great professionalism but also with a personal and warm approach. We felt that nothing was too difficult for you to organise for us.

Our advice to anyone considering KVBR as their wedding choice is to embrace all it has to offer: beautiful natural surroundings, excellent onsite caterer, stunning views from the sunset deck, friendly staff, onsite accommodation, outdoor activities, picnic and barbecue facilities, being able to personalise the reception space and the charm of Kangaroo Valley village and time to enjoy it all!

Our wedding event far surpassed our expectations and we are very grateful to you for your part in making it so memorable.

Kind Regards,
Warren and Bev

We had the best day of our lives and I keep looking over our photos and memories with such warm affection.  


Dale and I would like to extend the biggest and heartfelt thanks to you and the full KVBR team for such a memorable day. The Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat was the perfect location for our wedding. It’s unique and intimate setting really provided us and our family the chance to embrace the wonders of the NSW bush whilst maintaining the style charm and elegance of the fairytale wedding we hoped for.


The weather, the wildlife, the team, the food, the styling, the atmosphere was perfect. The team couldn’t have been more accommodating. I wish we could do it all over again.

I hope we get to stay with you again.

 

Thank you for our perfect day

The Bush Retreat honestly just speaks for itself, the location, the phenomenal views, the changing scenery, the versatility - everything about the place was just perfect. The design of everything from the sunset deck, the reception hall, down to the location of the cabins/games/pergola, are so well thought out and convenient. This was one of the things I noticed worked really well, it catered to everyone on the night, for those who wanted to party in the reception, they had ample space to do so, while others wanted to relax a bit at the cabins or those who wanted to play with the kids outside. One of my favourite things was view from the sunset deck during the day and the incredibly sky views at night. And I loved that we didn't have to travel to get different locations for our portrait photos, the different scenery within the retreat looked like we were travelling all over the place! 

We both want to take this time to also commend you on your constant maintenance work of the retreat, we saw you guys work during tough hot conditions with smiles on your faces and it was so reassuring to know that we had such dedication from you guys as managers. You were both so friendly and accommodating and we were constantly afraid of the rain seeing as most things were outdoors.  But you guys assured us that in rare cases of that happening you would be covering the seats the night before and providing us with umbrellas. Not only that, it was so relaxed and after going through so many other venues, we really appreciated the freedom we were allowed to make this wedding ours, to enjoy the night to the early morning hours, to set up how we wanted to, and to just explore the retreat.

 

It will truly be one of the best weekends that we will have in our lives :)

 Thanks again!

Words can't explain how amazing the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat is. It is simply stunning. From the moment we walked through the rock cathedral and took in the view of the valley from the sunset deck, we knew we'd found our dream wedding location. Your wedding day flies by, so it was amazing having three days to celebrate with our friends and family, and they quickly understood why we fell in love with this venue. To top it off, the staff went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect, and we can't thank them enough.

You guys have such a great venue/people skills combined that I hope many more couples get the full use of Kangaroo Valley Bush retreat for years and years to come.

 

We honestly had a ball, and our 3 days at the bush retreat exceeded my expectations in every way and would not have changed a thing. 

 

I again want to thank the Bush Retreat for their service and being the perfect venue for host our wedding, we would do it all over again.

Dear Liz and Adam,
We had the most incredible time with our guests at the kvbr, all the feedback we received was positive and the most common comments we received were "this is the best wedding venue I've ever been to" "we love the relaxed setting and the boma was a really nice touch".

Thank you, we'll be sure to let them know how happy you were with the pack down.

Have a great afternoon,
Kind regards,
Kaitlyn and Mathew

My husband and I were overwhelmed with this breathtaking venue. The support that we received from Adam and Liz and our wonderful caterer Katrina made our lives so much easier as they all went above and beyond from start to finish - to make our wedding day perfect. Our guests still talk about the delicious food and how incredibly beautiful the venue was!

 

There is nothing that we would have changed (even with the rain) and we could not recommend this venue highly enough. 

 

 

Kind regards

Hi All, 

 

Just a quick review below! 

We had an amazing time at Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat. The setting was perfect, and we had a ball. Adam and Liz where extremely helpful and answered all of our questions and we were pretty much left to do as we wanted with the venue, which meant we could decorate it as we wished. 

Many thanks!

Our wedding weekend was perfectly spent at the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat. The venue was everything we could have asked for and more. We knew from the moment we walked into the rock cathedral when we inspected the property almost a year earlier that no other venue would ever come close to this spectacular setting. The atmosphere created by this natural setting made our day so memorable. 

Our guests enjoyed their accommodation and the staff were so helpful. We know it’s said a thousand times, but this really was the best day of our lives and the Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat played a huge factor. 

 

 

Thanks again for everything,

Khalehla and Sam

We cannot recommend Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat more highly. When we saw the venue during our first inspection, we knew it would be the perfect backdrop for a very special day, but we had no idea just how special that would be. Our guests could not believe how incredible the venue was and we still have people raving about it being the best wedding they have ever been to. The best thing about having exclusive use of the Retreat over three days was that all the guests had met and mingled the night before, so the wedding day was a much more relaxed affair. There was no split between the Bride’s side and the Groom’s side as everyone was comfortable with each other.

 

The Retreat is big enough to allow everyone to feel like they are having a mini holiday, but close enough that it feels like one big exciting party! The on-site managers, Adam and Liz, were an absolute breeze to deal with. They had a very calming and relaxing presence and nothing was too much for them to do for us. They were also very thorough in the lead up to the wedding to make sure everything would be organised prior to our arrival. We would suggest to everyone to take the leap of faith and book this incredible venue for your wedding. You certainly won’t regret it and you will honestly have the time of your life surrounding by gorgeous scenery and breathtaking sunsets! Thanks KVBR!!
