Peppers Craigieburn, Bowral
We could not have asked for anything more from Carrie and the staff at Peppers-Craigieburn. They treated our wedding as if it were their own, and accommodated our every request. Carrie and the team helped us create our fairy tale wedding and we will always look back on our day with only the fondest of memories. Everything was taken care of, which meant we could enjoy every second and relax with our guests, who have continued to send feedback on the amazing service and venue. We can't say enough about Peppers Craigieburn, and we could not have picked a better venue for our special day. Perfect Venue, Perfect service, Perfect day.

I would like to Thank You for helping to make our wedding so special. We had an absolute ball - everything was just perfect and exactly as we hoped it would be! I really appreciated the way you accommodated us at such short notice, what could have been a very stressful couple of weeks turned out to be fine and I think that in the end we were much better off at Peppers Craigieburn. Also, please pass on our sincere thanks to all the Peppers Craigieburn staff who were just so professional, both on the day and also while we set up. We hope to visit Peppers Craigieburn again soon, it will be a special place for both Brent and I. Thanks again.

We would like to sincerely thank you for the wonderful day we had. Everything was perfect and all your staff were lovely....especially Wayne who looked after us all both on Saturday and Sunday morning. Our guests were full of compliments ( brilliant, excellent, charming, romantic ) on the venue, the accommodation, the food and the staff and were surprised to discover such a lovely venue which could cater for the ceremony, the reception and accommodation existed. Quite a few young Mums & Dads were able to have the evening off from their children and really enjoy themselves without the worry if having to drive home after the event. The youngsters were able to socialise after the event in the Bar long after we oldies retired with sore feet from all the dancing. Breakfast the next morning was an added bonus of being able to share time with our families and see the joy of both families intermingling and discussing the excellent night before. Please thank all the staff for us for helping make Jillian & Ryan's Wedding such a memorable event.....WELL DONE to you all.

We chose Craigieburn for our wedding as we wanted a venue with great food, a picturesque setting, and the ability to have all of our guests stay at the same place with us for the weekend. We weren't disappointed!! We would like to thank the chef, as all of the food at the reception and the breakfast was fantastic. Especially the special meals that were made for people with dietary requirements - the vegetarians couldn't stop raving about the truffle risotto.
The gardens at Craigieburn are stunning! We were married in November and all of the roses and flowers were out. We were extra lucky and an art exhibition was also happening, so there were some fantastic sculptures in the gardens. While we were married offsite in a church, we came back to Craigieburn for all of our bridal party, family and group photos, as it is just so beautiful. This saved us travel time, and it also worked well as our guests had champagne and canapés on the deck while we were doing the formal photographs. Our family members could easily come down to the gardens and be photographed with us when it was their turn.
We loved that everyone staying at Craigieburn was a friend or family, and that we were able to spend so much time with them before and after the wedding. Our guests all told us afterwards that they loved coming away for the weekend. As they didn't need to drive home after the wedding they were able to have more fun and relax on the night. And the Southern Highlands is a gorgeous destination that is easily accessible from Canberra and Sydney. The boys played golf at Craigieburn on the morning of the wedding, and the post-wedding buffet breakfast with all our guest was a great way to catch up with everyone and gossip about the reception. Plus Luke and I were able to dance until 1am as we didn't need to say any goodbyes to our guests on the night!
Craigieburn's wedding coordinator (Carrie) was great. She had a very relaxed and calm manner (which stopped us from stressing) and did everything I asked – from getting extra fans in the room (with 3 bridesmaids, 2 photographers, the make up artist, the hairdresser and the videographer it was a little crowded!), to printing the seating plan (as my printer broke the night before the wedding), to helping us pin on my Dads corsage (as we all had fake nails and couldn't do it). She was also very good about the fact that we live in Hong Kong, so practically everything was organized via email.
We loved our wedding at Craigieburn, and would definitely recommend it to anyone from Sydney or Canberra as a destination wedding location.
