Guest Comments:

Ashlee and Bob at Lovedale Chapel and Reception went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable for our wedding day. Very reasonably priced and the best value for money in the hunter valley. The outlook of the reception is stunning and feels very private. Ashlee and Bob answered question after question that I had in the year long lead up to the wedding and were very quick to respond via email. They were very patient with us at the rehearsal by going through everything we had to do and made it easy for us by playing music and giving us ques to walk down the aisle. The inclusions in the packages mean that they do all the hard work with setting up tables etc but you have a blank canvas to decorate yourselves. BYO alcohol means you save a lot as well! Food was incredibly yummy and everything went off completely perfectly without a hitch! They also made it easy for us to set up and pack up afterward as well. Our guests raved about the location, organisation and the food! They really could not have done any better and we are so thankful for everything they did to make our day everything we had dreamed and more!
