@ParisM:  

Well, I’m not an Aussie so please take my opinion with a grain of salt. If you and your FI love the venue and any fears about the venue itself have been assuaged, then I say run with it.

Your MOH is your friend and you are right to take her counsel into consideration. That being said, it’s not her wedding. In my opinion, it is just as (if not more) important to find a venue that you love, that your FI loves, and one where you both want to get married. If it suits your vision for your whole day and you love it, what are you waiting for? 🙂

Best wishes booking your venue, whatever you decide!!

I am an Aussie, and frankly I think you should go with the venue you love. Who cares if plenty of other people are booking it too? Your wedding is going to be unique and about you, and I’m sure there will be enough personal touches to distinguish it from anyone else’s big day!

There are only so many venues to fit any particular style. Any church out there will have done hundreds of weddings! Don’t stress about being unique. Just go with what you love and what suits you and your fiance.

@ParisM:  That place is GORGEOUS! 

Here’s the thing.. In a few years from now, nobody will remember your wedding the way you do. If you love the place, go for it! You will look back on your pictures fondly, glad you picked such a gorgeous and special place for you. You won’t have anyone elses pictures or memories there to compare it to in 20 years! And honestly, there are only so many “unique” details anyway. Do and pick what you love, you won’t regret it!

Australian cities don’t really have a huge variety of venues compared to some other countries I think. The pictures of that place look great so I would definitely go with it (unless like 3 of my other friends had been married there). It’s quite similar to our venue in Adelaide – English stately home with gardens and marquee.

It’s a bit like how everyone went off Canon in D as processional music because everyone apparently used it but since I’ve been going to weddings in the last 10 years not one bride has had it for her procession. So I feel like I can use it without being cliche now, haha.

Have the wedding you want, not anbody else (other than your future spouce!). If you love it and can afford it, then go for it! If yyou start trying to do your wedding to make other people happy or to impress people, then you’re just in for a world of hurt. Know what’s important to you and do what works for you! And the venue is beatiful!!!

my fiance and i got some “unwanted negative feedback” about our venue choice. It caused us to go and search around for a bunch of others – but at the end of the day we ended up coming back to it, because it just felt “us.” Go with your gut and your hearts. 

You’ll find plenty of ways to make it you and make it unique.
