What our couples say....
“We had a few 'must-haves' in mind when we searched for our wedding venue, and Markovina ticked them all. They had stunning ceremony and reception spaces which meant our guests and ourselves didn’t need to travel, a range of beautifully kept outdoor areas onsite so we didn’t have to travel far for photos, they provided an all-inclusive service so we didn’t need to organise separate wait staff or catering, and they had such extensive expertise in what they do that it gave us complete peace of mind. From our first visit to the day itself, we felt 110% looked after and that the team were completely invested in making our dream day a reality - and they did just that! They thought of everything, were prepared for anything, and worked seamlessly with our other vendors. Markovina was the perfect venue, and Rina, Mark and Vini and the team were the perfect people to entrust with our big day” - David and Xin Ran
“Rina and the team at Markovina are absolutely amazing. They were all professionals all throughout the process, easy to deal with and quick to respond. As I live overseas the importance of open communication was important to me and the team were consistent all throughout the planning process. The venue and food were amazing and I couldn’t have asked for a better venue to get married. Thank you, Rina, Vini, Renee and the team for looking after us so well - you all made our day even more special. we so appreciate it” – Aimee and Damien
“Markovina is the most magical place to have a wedding. We loved working with their team to create our perfect day and the staff are incredible. They go above and beyond to make sure that your wedding does go ahead without a hitch. We love all the staff at Markovina and are so happy that we got to have our wedding at their venue. Mark, Rina, and Renee are absolutely amazing hosts!” – Abby and Dean
