Testimonals

Kylie and Andrew, Jan 28 - Wedding

‘We absolutely loved our reception at Arborio and thoroughly enjoyed working with Simon and Marnie, who made the whole experience very relaxed, but totally seamless on the day.’
‘The service and food was amazing on the day and so many of our guests commented on it, often saying it was the best that they had ever had at a wedding. We appreciated the genuine and honest dealings we had with Simon and Marnie, and felt as if they really cared about making our day special.’
