Here’s what our couples say..

Anna Maddren 2023

Abel Estate was the first venue we came to view, and we decided not to look further, as everything looked perfect - a beautiful location with a lake and vineyard, a great airy venue for the reception, an experienced team, providing great support with the wedding planning.

Our wedding was very well organised by the Abel Estate team, and every little detail was thought through. We had several meetings with wedding planners, which was super helpful. Thank you to the Abel Estate team for organizing our wedding! It was a pleasure working with you all.

Kirsten To 2023

Our vision for our wedding was to have it where there were beautiful and picturesque view around us. We love the concept of having something romantic and magical, and Abel Estate had this. It was really my dream to have my wedding in a lovely garden beside a lake and once again, all of these are in Abel Estate.

My husband and I are working full-time, so having that concierge package made it so much easier for us. We did not get that stressed with planning, especially in the early months.

Lidia Sokolova 2023

The wedding was absolutely amazing because Abel Estate made it so easy for us with so many things included that we didn’t have to spend time looking around. They recommended an amazing florist who delivered way beyond our expectations. The planning meetings were really super helpful along with the staff that we had the pleasure of working with.

Our wedding coordinator Stephanie was the best and made sure the day was seamless and that we always had a drink in hand.

Rebecca Dennis 2023

We had the best day ever and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Abel Estate.

From our initial planning with the wedding events manager Nikki to the final meetings with wedding day-of coordinator Steph we felt very looked after. All our questions were answered promptly and we were never made to feel like a bother.

Our guests raved about the food that was served. We chose the buffet style and so many guests went up for seconds or thirds. The pork belly was a hot favourite.

Monique Edwards 2023

The venue looked absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. This is something that I think the Abel Estate owners do very well. They know how to make an environment look stunning. As for the flowers by GO Flowers, WOW. They were top-notch. I would highly recommend Meghann and I can see why Abel Estate partners with them.

The food was delicious! I am so pleased! I feel as though there was plenty of food and it was all very tasty. The drinks were great! I wasn’t sure if they were going to be cheap and cheerful but I loved how they tasted and our guests seemed very happy too.

Nathan Tavelia-Augustine 2023

We couldn’t believe that a place as beautiful as Able Estate could be as affordable as it was. We booked a date and placed a deposit the same day we walked in.

Friends and family had many compliments to share after the wedding about how the food was decorated as well as how great it all tasted.

Nicole Van Der Walt 2023

We found Abel Estate online and when we saw the place we thought it was beautiful. The views were amazing.

The reception was beautiful, loved the flowers and layout. The venue styling made the wedding planning easier. The food was yummy and the portions were generous.

Charnny Bun 2023

Our indoor ceremony looked beautiful thanks to the flowery arch and other decorations provided by the venue.

The service we received on the day was 10/10 - the staff were efficient and polite, everything was served with a smile.
