Weddings at Immerse in the Yarra Valley
Deciding where to hold your special day? Maybe some of these testimonals will help
When choosing a wedding venue in the Yarra Valley, it was the very positive feedback on the Immerse website that caught our attention. And now we are the ones providing that feedback! Our wedding was the truly superb. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough!
The winery chapel provides a charming and intimate space for the ceremony. We had 108 guests comfortably seated on a 37 degree December day, the air-conditioning was brilliant! Following the ceremony we were delighted with our photos which captured the beautiful winery and rural surrounds, and it felt particularly relaxed because it was all on site.
Our reception was exactly what we had been looking for; DELICIOUS food and wine (and we are self-confessed snobs in this department!) and a very personal environment for speeches. Many guests commented that it was by far the best wedding food they had experienced, and we second that. The floor staff were fantastic, no request was too diifficult and a smile accompanied their service all night. Our band were very comfortable in the front area which was a great space for everyone to hit the dance floor!
Our wedding would not have been what it was without the profound expertise and support that came from Katrina. From the day we were enquiring about having our wedding at Immerse, she was helpful beyond measure. The wedding was tailored to suit exactly what we were all about; which is why it felt so personal. On the day, I was in total awe at Katrina's ability to do ten things at the one time with a huge smile that didn't leave her face. Matt I were left with the knowledge that we didn't have to do anything but enjoy every moment of the precious day with our family and friends (and Katrina reminded me of this several times!).
A truly wonderful and very memorable experience. Thank-you Immerse!!
Sarah and Matt Muling - 8th December 2012

Dear Katrina and the amazing team at Immerse,
We really can't thank you enough for your incredible hospitality, organisation, professionalism, amazing food and fantastic accommodation! Your flexibility and dedication to making sure everything about our day was exactly as we wanted and resulted in a day that absolutely exceeded all our expectations in every way. The only thing we would change is, if we could, we'd live that day exactly the same 100 times over so it never really ended. Thank you all!

We would happily recommend Immerse to anyone.

Hi Stephen and Helen
It was lovely to meet you both last night, I would just like to personally thank you again for all that you and your staff did for us to help make our event such a big success.
The service I have experienced from my initial phone call of enquiry until when I left last night was second to none. In my current role I have been responsible for organizing a number of events and my job has never been easier, in fact, I find it hard to take the credit for a lot of the event as a feel I really did not need to do that much. If only other aspects of my job were that easy!
I would also like to thank Aneeka for her part in the evening and her exceptional organizational skills. I have received many comments today in relation to how all of the staff interacted with guests and were not just there to take away our dirty dishes but to ensure we enjoyed the entire evening. A job extremely well done and a credit to you.
I could continue on with praise for your staff and your establishment for pages and pages but will leave it with a last Thank you and I look forward to organizing an event with you again in the very near future.

We just wanted to write you a note to say a huge thank you for everything you did for the wedding.
The day went perfectly and the reception room looked amazing.
The whole day seemed to go off without any stress or fuss which was just what we wanted.
You and the girls looked like you floated round the room, appearing only when necessary!!
We had an awesome day and couldn't believe that the sun shone the whole day.
All our family and friends said it was a brilliant venue and the food wonderful (so please pass on our thanks to the chefs).
Thanks again for all your efforts, we hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

Lou Chable was the father of the bride at Melissa and Richard's Wedding at Immerse on the 30th May 2009.Katrina, I'd just like to thank you and all at Immerse for the fabulous job you all did in making Melissa & Rich's wedding preparations and reception such a success. Your personalised service and friendly face and the fact that you were there for them throughout, just made it go all that much smoother.. Thank you.
Also the food for the reception was fantastic.. I have been to a number of functions where the food looked like it had been prepared the day before but to see such fresh, well prepared and delicious food arrive was a credit to the Chef and his team in the kitchen so can you also please pass on our appreciation to them as well.
I must also compliment you all on the quality of the venue. I hark back to Melissa telling me of the disappointment she felt when they initially thought that they might need to move venues after the fire, so to see the work that has been put in since to bring it back to it's current state is a credit to you all out there..
So thanks again for a great weekend!
Lou Chable| Father of the Bride
