Some lovely messages from our special Bride and Grooms:
"My (now) husband and I are from Mildura, Victoria, and at the recommendation of a friend we dropped through Grand Cru Estate for lunch one weekend on our way to Adelaide. A quick lunch turned into an afternoon of wine tastings, wood oven pizzas and engaging conversation with the owners, Roz and Pete. 12months and an engagement later, we were scouring the local establishments looking for wedding venues that symbolised and embodied us, as a couple. It was futile. Hesitant to choose a venue so far from home, I contacted Roz for more information and we never looked back. Roz and Amy took all of the stress out of preplanning our wedding; with us not being local to the Barossa area they helped us find everything from the celebrant to the beautiful horses and wagon! Forgotten something? Don’t worry, Roz is a wedding girl-scout – she’s prepared for anything. Our wedding party utilised the picturesque Homestead at Grand Cru for a few days prior to our big day. We arrived on a cold, wet and windy autumn day to find the fires lit and the kitchen stocked. The gloomy weather was almost welcome as we got to make the most of our cozy home curled up on chair or sharing family meals in the magnificent dining booth. Take the opportunity to explore this house, there are hidden treasures in every corner. All of our family members and guests had to travel a great distance attend our wedding, and were first welcomed to Grand Cru on the Friday night before our wedding day to a mouth watering dinner of lamb shanks and Peter Seppelt wine. The day of our wedding started off fine and sunny, but an hour before the ceremony the wind and rain returned. Never fear, Roz and Amy had Ceremony Plan B activated and the guests were none the wiser! The ambiance and the atmosphere of Grand Cru outshone the doom and gloom outside – the whole thing was 100% stress free. It rained, it poured and it was absolutely perfect.
To Roz, Peter and Amy - a sincere and heartfelt thank you. We shall return for food, wine and a photo catch-up soon!" xo Bridget & Anthony
"We cannot thank you and your staff enough for making our wedding day so memorable. We didn't have to worry about a thing on the day - you made sure everything ran smoothly and that everyone was well looked after. We couldn't have asked for a better day or a better venue.
Thank you so much for taking your time with us and showing us around the property on the very first day we visited. We fell in love with the place straight away and, although we hadn't looked at many other venues, we just knew that we wouldn't find another place more perfect than yours. A big part of why we love place so much is due to the atmosphere you have created. Everyone you have working at the Estate, including yourselves, is so warm and welcoming." Maggie & Josh.
"Fantastic location, amazing staff. Peter and Roz were the perfect and most professional hosts for our wedding. Couldnt have asked for a better day. At no point were we stressed or wondering if everything was on schedule. Everything went without a single hitch. We couldnt be more great full." Emily & Jamie
"Dear Roz and Peter,
Thank you so much for all your help with our reception. Nothing was too hard or out of the question, it was fantastic being able to set up the Wine store on the Thursday before our wedding, it meant it was all ready for the Saturday and we didn’t have to stress. The gardens and lake were perfect and made an amazing backdrop for our photos. Everyone was impressed with the setting and Wine Store. Thankyou Roz for always responding to my emails so quickly, you and Peter were both such professional and easy to deal with people. Thanks again", Lauren & David Miegel
"If you are looking for a wedding venue, do yourself a favour and lock in Grand Cru. A picturesque location, amazing food and wine, friendly staff; Grand Cru has it all. Our guests still comment on the high quality and quantity of the food, with some stating it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding or function. Roz and Peter's willingness to help us plan and execute our 'surprise wedding' was above and beyond our expectations, and helped eliminate the stress that often occurs when planning a wedding. We had an absolute blast at Grand Cru!", Jas & Mark
'"We were very happy with the care and expertise both Roz and Peter provided in the lead up to our wedding day. Their knowledge of the local area and businesses helped make the planning of our day easier. The scenery at Grand Cru is breathtaking and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful venue to get married. All the little details were taken care of and our wedding day ran smoothly''
I can't believe it has been 9 months since our wedding. Thank you to you, Peter and your family for making our wedding day so special. We will always have fond memories of Grand Cru Estate and our special day." Brooke & Matt
"Honestly… we wouldn’t change a thing. We feel so lucky we picked the right people to work with. Roz and Peter you were helpful where we needed you, and pointed us in the right direction if you weren’t able to help.
Sharon and I put a lot of thought into our day, and felt we were able to do our own thing at your venue, and… when we needed it you guys were there to help.
But honestly Roz… we can’t fault our day, our guests had so much fun, we had so much fun, we wish we could have it again" Aaron & Sharon
"Thank you so much for hosting our wedding last weekend! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue to celebrate the best day of our lives! We had the most perfect day!" x Lisa & Brett Harding
