We chopped and changed our venue so many times it was ridiculous.
We were going to have an outdoor wedding in April, then a marquee wedding in July, then a church wedding with a cocktail reception, then a cocktail reception with a marquee, then we finally decided to look at function centres with restaurants. Then we looked at the Boatshed on South Perth Foreshore, Matilda Bay Restaurant and Aqua Viva in Nedlands. Then we looked at The Old Brewery and booked it.
Emily (the Wedding Coordinator at TOB) is a friend from primary school, so that was a nice surprise - sometimes it's weird seeing people from long ago, but Emily was so professional, very good at her job and always ready to listen to our ideas. No matter how much we got confused or mixed up, Emily was there to clarify, keep us calm and on schedule.
We loved all the staff at TOB, on our wedding day the waiter for our table was one of the best we've ever had in terms of attentive service (and for a wedding completely out of sight!). The Chef passed on his congratulations, which was really nice. All the other waiters and kitchen staff were amazing, the food was hot, on time and really well presented. It was so delicious that we would eat those meals again just for fun. Omg, that Snapper (with Saffron Mash & preserved lemon salsa) to die for.
Anyway, I'll stop drooling.
I loved the service at the Old Brewery. Again, I think we were a little hesitant at first because it was more expensive than other options we looked at, but I think in the end you get what you pay for. The Old Brewery is booked years in advance with a wedding every weekend (in Spring and Summer) and it shows. Emily knows how to work with brides and grooms. She knows all the little details and she is so ready to sit down and talk about your vision for the day and how they can make that happen.
Emily and The Old Brewery were so great, I'm so glad we got married there!
