Dearest Julie….and the entire ORSO Team,

Trina and I would love to personally thank you for providing Trina and I with our dream wedding. Your attention to detail was unbelievable. After all the planning and organising, I was amazed that the entire ceremony and reception was executed perfectly and was relaxed and fun. I honestly can say the entire day was perfect. I would change nothing and we can’t thank you enough.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Good Morning Julie & Amy,

Hope you’re both well and enjoyed the long weekend.

On behalf of John-Paul, Stephanie and parents of the future Mr & Mrs, we wanted to say a big THANK YOU for everything regarding the engagement.

What an amazing day it was and it couldn’t have been done without the two of you! The venue was absolutely amazing, food was delicious and the bar/wait staff were incredible.

Engagement of Stephanie + John-Paul 10.6.2018

Hi Amy,

Where do I begin? Our lunch for mum’s 70th bday yesterday was beyond perfection (that is my parent’s standard). I wish to thank Sandor, Alex , Chef and yourself for going out of your way to ensure mum (and dad) had a beautiful family lunch. From the start of emailing, meeting and organising the lunch with you, I found you were supportive, creative, understanding and very easy to work with – mum felt you were like a friend and wanted to make the lunch the nice – and I agreed. Every change and request that was communicated with you was followed through with class, elegance and professionally in a friendly manner. The location and weather were beautiful, the chef was amazing – please thank him for the beautiful lobster and the fabulous lunch! Sandor and Alex were a fabulous, professional team that ensured the lunch ran effortlessly and we all appreciated their friendliness and service. The service was amazing and some of the best I have ever experienced – it felt genuine and so giving I really appreciated their efforts.

We have found a new family dinner or lunch venue for our gatherings and absolutely would like to thank you and everyone involved with making yesterday such a flawless happy day.

Appreciate all your help.

Many many thanks,

Ivanka 🙂

70th Birthday to Katcia 20.5.2018

Hello Julie,

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such an amazing day. Orso’s have been so amazing and really helped to make the day the best day, we and all of our guests have said how perfect everything was and given our time again we would not change a thing.

Wedding of Amanda + Matt 23.3.2018

Thanks so much to you, Amy and the rest of the staff at Orso for making our wedding day so special. It was a pleasure planning the wedding with you, Amy and Kizia, and on the day everything ran really smoothly.  All our guests loved the venue and the food! The room looked beautiful, the service was impeccable and your staff took care of everything for us.

We’re so glad we chose Orso for our wedding – it was just perfect!

Best regards

Wedding of Aisha + Clive 18.3.2018


Dear Julie,

Thank you so much for all that you did to make our day amazing. Everything went perfectly. The venue looked amazing, the staff were attentive and wonderful. Lou and I could not have been more happy with what you all did for us. Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to the chefs and waiters, the DJ and all of your team.

Wedding of Greg + Lou – 04.05.2018


I have been meaning to send you an email!! The last few days have been a whirlwind lol.

I don’t even know where to start!!!

From the very first time we stepped foot into Orso and had our initial meeting with Amy you guys have been absolutely unbelievable!!!

To say unbelievable is really an understatement. My communications with you were so easy, and not just that you really made planning a wedding easy and fun because I know that you genuinely care about your clients and love what you do. I can’t thank you enough for all your help in the lead up and on the big day. Your professionalism and the way you do your job is amazing!!! Even down to the last minute changes etc you made things so easy and were so fine about it it calmed me down as well. You should be so proud Sasha!

On the actual day- I don’t know how to explain how amazing the service was. The organization, attention to detail, your ease of letting us come in and out as need be. Every single detail was perfect.

Throughout the wedding Julie was unbelievable. She was a happy beautiful face that would pop up occasionally to calmly explain something to us or get us organized for the next part of the night. She is quite possibly the most organized person I’ve ever met lol. Every single little thing I told her she remembered and executed. My mum was also in disbelief of how organized and easy it was to pack up everything- Julie making sure mum knew of all the things I really wanted to take home (the bridal flower arrangement for example) and even little touches like making sure our place cards were kept and that my bouquet was safe. She even made sure I had something warm to wear on the water taxi!

The food- amazing! I had many many guests grab me and say Tara this is the best food we have EVER eaten at a wedding and another guest say it’s all the little extra touches that made the food just that extra bit amazing.

Sam and I at no point in the night (or our guests) had an empty glass!

Sam and I have been to 18 (now 19 lol) weddings together and I have never experienced a night, or a experience as a whole greater than our own wedding!!! It was quite literally flawless.

The location, the view, everything just added to an amazing day!!!!! It was something we never even could have dreamed of.

Anyway I could go on alllllll day but I just really wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you guys and what a difference you make to one of the biggest days in people’s lives. We will never forget you guys!!

Also I’m sorry if I was a bit frantic for a while there on Saturday haha. The rain threw me! The rest of the day was absolutely beautiful. I will send you through some photos!

Thanks again!Xx

Tara + Sam's Wedding - 03.06.2017

Dear Sasha

You beat me to it.  It was a fabulous night – great weather, terrific staff (including your good self and Julie on the night), good food and plonk.  Lovely flowers from Rachel.  All arranged very easily – at least from my end.

Kind regards Sarah

Hi Sasha, Amy and Julie,

I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to contact but we haven’t had very good wifi overseas.

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you lovely ladies and your fantastic team of bar staff and chefs for the wonderful work you did on making our wedding the most dream day we could imagine.

Julie you were incredible on the evening and ensured everything ran smoothly, we really appreciate all that you did for us.

Wedding of Daniella + Heath - 04.03.2017

Dear Sasha,

Luke and I just wanted to say a sincere thank you for the amazing reception provided by Orso. We got so many compliments on the gorgeous food and venue, and all the Orso staff members were just so friendly and helpful. It was lovely too that myself, my sister and my Dad were allowed to pop in early – this allowed us to have some much needed refreshment time between almost three hours of photos and the ceremony.

It has also been a pleasure dealing with you and Amy throughout. You’ve been so efficient with your communication and assistance, and made so many helpful suggestions that we would never have even considered.

Thank you all so much for going above and beyond to make our day so wonderful.

Kind regards,

Holly Boyden and Luke Wakefield.

Wedding of Holly + Luke - 09.04.2017

Hi Amy, Sasha, Julie, Kizzy and the team at Orso,

My sincere apologies for the delay in writing to you, we have just got back from Hawaii and are settling into our new life!

We wanted to write and thank you SO much, for your absolutely perfect service on our wedding night. Our guests have not stopped talking about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was and how professional the staff were. Many of our guests have called us to say ‘it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to’. This couldn’t have happened without your timely responses, your helpful advice and your 5-star team and service. Thank you for all your help in the lead up to the wedding as well, to Lisa and Amy who answered lots of questions we had and particularly to Sasha, thank you for your help in sorting out the finer details like the seating chart and the run sheet. I’m so sorry for my late night emails!

I would also like to make a special mention to Julie, your professionalism on the night was absolutely amazing, you were so accommodating and went above and beyond for us. Our parents would also like to thank you and have not stopped talking about how fantastic you were. Thank you for ensuring everything ran smoothly – it was the perfect wedding. Thanks to Kizzy as well for your help the day before at the drop off meeting and on the night, I really can’t express how thankful we are about how it all turned out. When we first walked into Orso, we instantly felt a positive, relaxing and elegant vibe, and we definitely felt that on the night. Thank you.

I have rated Orso on ABIA and left a review on Facebook. When we receive our professional photos, I will send back the real wedding brief – please let me know if there’s anything else I can do. I can’t recommend Orso highly enough.

Our thanks again,

Bianca and Jonathan

Wedding of Bianca + Jonathan - 21.01.2017

We just want to say another big Thankyou to you & Amy & Kizzy & a massive Thankyou to Julie. She was amazing & did everything so well on Saturday night & was always on the ball. We cannot thank her enough! She was always there for us & made everything run smoothly. She was fantastic! You guys are all awesome & when we decide to have a child, we will definitely come back for the christening!! Everyone loved the venue & the food as well.



Wedding of Vicky & Robert - 11.02.2017

Hi Sasha and Amy

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you both as well as Julie and the rest of the team for all your help in organising our engagement lunch. You were all so flexible in accomodating our requests for the day and we were both so happy with how everything turned out. Can you please pass on a huge thank you to the chef, he was also so accomodating and everyone raved about how great the food was. As you know you have a pretty spectacular outlook and the guests were amazed at how great the venue looked. I have attached some photos of the venue dressed for you guys to see and use if you would like. I have also attached a video of a group shot taken from a drone, I think its pretty cool! I hope you like them!

Thanks again


Alexandra + Joseph's Engagement Party - 05.02.2017

Hi Julie,

As Lizzie & Mick are away on their honeymoon, I would like to extend a huge thank you to you for an incredible night last Friday 3rd Feb 17. It is hard to believe it has been almost a week since the wedding as I definitely feel I am still in recovery mode!

I cannot begin to thank you and your team- Amy & Sasha for making Orso the very best venue we could have chosen for our daughter’s wedding. Your attention to detail, the wonderful service, the delicious food, the lovely wine, the courtesy and attention of your staff all resulted in the most wonderful event. I want to thank you so much for your professionalism. I have never ‘outsourced’ an event before so there was certainly a significant degree of pre-event anxiety. However I eventually allowed myself to trust in you and your team and the result was simply fantastic! I have had so many compliments from every guest who now want to make ‘Orso’ their first choice for all future events….everyone described the night as “perfect”.

I could not have wished for a better night. Everything you did….even putting some wedding cake in a little takeaway box for the bride and groom in their luggage was so appreciated! Your attention to relighting the little tea lights…..was noticed and appreciated. Your support of me with cold glasses of water……was really appreciated. The night was a dream come true…..everybody had a ball and most importantly Lizzie and Mick had the best time.

You have put together a fantastic team and we are incredibly grateful to every single person. I have no doubt Lizzie will get in contact with you on her return……..I just wanted to get in first to say “Thank you”!

Very best wishes and warm regards

Jenny Brown

Mother of the bride

Our guests had the best time and we are grateful for everyone who helped us and made not only the day but everything leading up to the day run so smoothly.

Thank you again!

Lots of love,

We cant thank Orso and all the staff enough for all of their help in the lead up to and on the day of the wedding. you all did a great job and made it perfect for us.



Wedding of Rachel + Ed - 25.11.2016

Hi Lisa,

Thank you so much! Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more! The day was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have imagined it any better. It was so good to see everything come together after it pretty much just being in our heads

Please do because we will do absolutely everything we can to help you win another award! We had so many compliments from guests saying how amazing the venue was. People also raved about the food so could you please pass on our compliments to the catering staff for the tremendous work they did. Drew was also amazing, as you knew he would be, so thank you for organising him for us.  We will be sending them an email as well. Can you also pass on our thanks to Kizia who made everything run so smoothly on the day. Everything flowed seamlessly together, even when we ran a bit behind schedule, which made the night that much more enjoyable. Also the Park Hyatt was simply an amazing experience to cap off our wedding day so thank you for arranging that for us too.

Thank you again.

Kind regards,

Shannon & Lara Pender


Wedding of Shannon & Lara - 10.12.2016

Hi Team,

Firstly, thank you Lisa, Sasha and Amy from the bottom of our hearts for all the help from the minute we booked the venue with you. Every time we came to Orso for the menu tasting to the final details we left every time saying to each other that we couldn’t have picked a better venue. You were so pleasant to deal with and made the planning process so easy for us.

Our wedding day was everything we could have dreamed of and more! A huge thank you to Kizia! I don’t even think the evening at Orso could have been anymore perfect. Everything went so smoothly and our drinks weren’t empty the entire night! Seriously you were amazing! We hope ourselves and our guests weren’t too much of a hassle and that you enjoyed the night like we did!

As with the location/view, our guests raved about the food- so thanks to the chefs! We haven’t heard a single complaint from anyone and we are over the moon.

We can’t wait to come back to Orso one night soon and have been recommending it to all our friends. It is honestly the perfect place to hold a reception!

Thank you so so so much again to the whole team for making our day/night perfect. We want to do it again!!

Rachel and Corey.




Wedding of Rachel + Corey - 21.10.2016

From start to finish Orso was extremely helpful and professional in every aspect of organization for this reception.  Lisa and Amy would have to be given a special mention as they answered every question and enquiry quickly and very efficiently.  Nothing seemed to be a problem to either or these girls.  The staff on the night were excellent.  All very friendly, efficient and with Julie running the whole show everything  ran very smoothly without a hitch in sight.  These three girls should be highly recommended.

The meals also were of a really high quality.  We have had nothing but praise as to the meals  that were served.   I must admit I personally was very impressed with the sample night and had a very hard time in choosing the menu.

So on Behalf of my Husband Michael and I we would like to  personally thank you and your staff for making our daughters wedding such an memorial night.  I also will be highly recommending Orso to anyone that will listen to me.

Michael and Adrienne Johnson (Parents of the Bride)

Wedding of Sam + Luke - 4.11.2016

Thank you for your well wishes. We really liked how the reception went smoothly and the overall service, from the planning all the way to the wedding day, was just top class! We’ve answered the ABIA ratings as requested and we’re hoping you bag the award!

Thank you to entire Orso team!

Hello Amy

I know you will have moved on to many more weddings since Sophie and Justin’s wedding on Saturday 29 October 2016 but I just wished to say how wonderful you and your staff were on the night of the wedding.  You were so helpful, friendly, thoughtful and professional.  It made for such a great night.  The DJ was fabulous and staff very accommodating.

You with Sophie certainly took away any stress there might have been.

Best wishes to you

Wedding of Claire + Nathan - 15.10.2016

Lisa, Julie, Amy – all of the staff at Orso, WOW – where do we start!

After two weekends of venue hunting, we had our first visit to Orso and we knew it was perfect for us. I couldn’t contain my excitement as we walked out the door and Hugh looked at me and said ‘your face says it all – this is our venue!’. Planning a wedding was definitely easier because of you. Our wedding reception was magical! You went above and beyond to ensure everything went to plan. When catching up with family and friends on the night, everyone had compliments about the incredible food and service. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our night so perfect, so much so, I keep asking Hugh if we can do it again!!

Thank you, much love, the newlyweds – Mr & Mrs Sykes x

Wedding of Natalie + Hugh - 26.08.2016

Hi Amy,

I just wanted to say thank you to you, Lisa and all the wonderful staff at Orso, we had a fabulous evening for our daughter Emily’s wedding. Please pass on our thanks to the Chef for the beautiful meal and to your lovely attentive staff who looked after us all evening and made the reception such a success. The venue is just gorgeous and everyone enjoyed having a drink on the verandah admiring the beautiful view and even feeding the pelicans at the end of the evening. To farewell Emily and Jon on their water taxi at the end of the evening was a highlight and to see their happy, radiant faces as they left us to start their life together was a joy to see.

Thank you and regards

Everyone I’ve spoken to had such an amazing time and are in awe of the venue. Such a beautiful place and on behlaf of Tony and I were so pleased to have had our engagement party with you.

Kind Regards

Engagement Party of Bianca + Tony - 23.07.2016

Hi Lisa and Amy,

We wanted to say a HUGE thank you to your team! From the very first phone call with Amy, to dealing with yourself and your staff, our experience has been absolutely amazing! You have all made it so easy to organise and celebrate such an important event! I want to also mention your fantastic team that helped us with set up and the day’s events! Julie and Makayla were outstanding! They not only continued on the smooth process from Amy and yourself, but went above and beyond to ensure Matt and myself were completely looked after! Please pass on our thanks to them once again! Makayla had the job of setting out our decorations. With one quick brief, she understood everything and executed everything down to the last detail. She is an amazing part of your team and should be highly commended for her work ethic! The team at Orso have the upmost professionalism and we will definitely be coming back and highly recommending your venue to everyone we know! The day not only blew us away but every one of our guests. I know a lot of our friends were asking us about possibly having their children’s christening’s there, so we might be back sooner rather than later. Thank you once again! Matt and I will have such amazing memories from Pia’s christening and we have the Orso team to thank!

Kindest regards, Lea and Matt

Pia's Christening - 13.09.2016

Hi Lisa,

I’m not sure if you know, but Christina and I took a chance with Orso. Given that we’re from the South West of Sydney, we had never come across Orso before, nor had the large majority of our guests. We didn’t know what to expect with regards to the venue, the service and quality.

We can both say, unreservedly, that it was a beautiful night that we will remember for the rest of our lives.

We had an absolutely fantastic time! From the moment we made contact with Amy via your enquiries page, during the setup of the event with yourself, and to the end of the night where we shook hands with and thanked Julie for the great service, it has been an unforgettable and enjoyable experience.

The service has been absolutely outstanding, all the food was delicious, the venue was breathtaking and the overall feel of the night with regards to staff and ambience was beyond what we could’ve hoped for. Thank you for helping us create a lifelong memory.

We’ll definitely be in touch in the future (we’re already thinking Christenings in a couple of years!)

Warm regards,
Charbel and Christina

Engagement of Charbel + Christina - 02.07.2016

Hello Lisa, Julie and Amy,
Mum had such a wonderful birthday lunch on Sunday, so many thanks to you Amy for organising everything beforehand, to Julie on the day and to Lisa for all the loose ends. The afternoon went off very easily, the staff couldn’t do enough for us and despite the weather we were warm and snug and delighted with everything. The food was wonderful, so once again many thanks for making it all so easy.
Kind regards,

Pauline's Birthday Celebrations - 19.06.2016

Thank you so much for everything you and the team did in making our wedding amazing. We are still hearing wonderful things about the night from everyone. Everyone was wowed by the venue and we have had numerous compliments on how wonderful all the staff was. Nothing was too much and they certainly made sure everyone always had a drink in hand and were well looked after. Julie was absolutely amazing on the night as well, managed to keep my wild bridal party under control and the night went so smoothly.

Thanks again for making it such a relaxing and wonderful experience for us.

Rosie and Josh 🙂

Wedding of Rosie + Josh - 01.04.2016

Thank you so much for making our day special. We appreciate how beautiful the room looked for the ceremony with such short notice and the little things you did such as organising some drinks for the bridal party for the photos. We also wanted to say that the room looked stunning for the reception. We were blown away by the incredible service you and your staff had. Nothing was too hard, everything flowed so well and we didn’t have to organize or worry about a single thing.

Thank you again for making our day an incredible one.

Kind regards,

Nikki and Craig

Wedding of Nikki + Craig - 18.03.2016

Hi Lisa,
I’m sorry for the very slow reply. We’ve been enjoying normal life since the honeymoon and have really loved not spending all weekends wedding planning, so we are just getting around to answering our wedding-related emails now!We would like to say thank you sooooooo much for everything that you, Julie, Amy and the rest of the team did for us. We had the best Wedding day, it was so much fun! The room looked awesome, Julie had everything perfectly under control and treated us like royalty all night (we especially loved the pieces of cake she packed for us to take on the boat!!)

We have had nothing but positive reviews from our guests, with many of them saying it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to. Everyone loved the food and drinks and thought the venue was perfect, there is absolutely nothing we could fault about Orso. We just can’t thank you enough. You have been so lovely to deal with and you were very patient with us when we didn’t know exactly what we wanted, and were so kind when answering all of our questions. I was never stressed about the reception part of the wedding, because I trusted you and the team and we knew it would all work out how we wanted it. Thank you for always putting our mind at ease and always being on top of everything!

Thank you again for everything.

Wedding of Louise + Josh - 04.03.2016

Hi Lisa, Amy, Jules and Lucy!

Thank you SO MUCH for the EPIC evening, the whole day was a great success and ORSO played one of the biggest parts in making all our family & friends have an absolute blast!

From start to finish, you ladies (and I’m sure there are some guys in the mix too) have been so caring, so supportive and so accomodating with everything no matter how big or small! Your attention to detail and focus on putting clients first puts you well ahead of the rest!

But of course, the biggest judge of the evening was Han and I can tell you all, you scored a perfect 11/10! Absolutely brilliant!

Wedding of Han + Stan - 19.03.2016

On behalf of both our families. Thank you very much for everything! It was a pleasure dealing with you throughout the planning.
Everything was superb- service, food, venue, setup, etc was beyond what we expected.
Everyone couldn’t stop complimenting on everything. Thank you!

Kind regards,

Sophia + Eva's Christening - 13.03.2016

Hi Lisa,

Maria & I owe you & the team a big thank you, everyone that spoke to me on Sunday & even on Monday told me how happy they were with the food, the level of service & the venue in general. Even the people you recommended like rosa, Tass & the water taxi idea were fantastic.

We were both really happy with everything & we will be filling in all these items below once we get back. You, Amy & Julie really were a delight to deal with & we can’t speak highly enough about how we were treated from start to finish. I was feeling stressed (like most people) as the day unfolded but as soon as I arrived & saw the venue I felt a weight lift, I just knew it would all go smoothly & I wasn’t disappointed.

Wedding of Maria + Paul - 15.05.2016

Dear Lisa, Amy, Julie and all of the wonderful Orso staff,

Sorry it has taken us so long to write to you, we have just arrived back from our honeymoon in Europe – London, French Riviera and Italy. And now back to reality at work.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the Orso Team for all of your hard work in making our wedding reception a fantastic night enjoyed by all who attended. We had such a great night and so did all of our guests – we got a lot of positive feedback from people. Everything went really well (although really fast!!) and according to plan (except Hugh getting a bit drunk after speeches), we couldn’t have hoped for a better night!

Thank you Amy and Lisa for all of your help with the organisation in the lead up to the night and please pass on a big thanks to Julie for her fantastic co-ordination of everything on the night. We were so happy with our choice of venue, you guys were just so easy going and accommodating.

We will be getting our photos back from our photographer this week so I will be sure to pass on some pics from the night.

Thanks again,
Pip & Hugh xx

Wedding of Pip + Hugh - 16.04.2016

Galderma Australia - Christmas Party 04.12.2015

Jason and I wanted to extend our deepest thank you to both of you and to Julie who were an absolute dream to work with. You made our day more special than we could have imagined.

Firstly to you both for your prompt emails and feedback and your endlessly positive attitude to making everything work. You trawled through my novel emails and made the wedding planning easy by taking away the stress of venue drama.

You were both so accommodating and are both assets to Orso. Thank you for helping me set up and helping our parents pack down, nothing was unnoticed.

To Julie – oh my goodness. She is unbelievable. She was so attentive, accommodating, positive, prompt and reliable.

Not only did guests comment on how wonderful the service (and food!) was, the bridal party were over the moon with the way she accommodated every single thing.

As we were heading off by boat I was thinking to myself – damn I really wish I ate a doughnut. And sure enough, Julie had packed us desert – our cake and two doughnuts.

I cannot thank her enough for how wonderful she is. I hope every couple passes on her praise because she truly deserves it.

Again, thank you all for every little thing you did. You guys offer a 5 star service and we were very spoilt.

Keshnee & Jason

Wedding of Keshnee + Jason - 01.08.2015

I just want to thank you for your amazing service in the lead up you were beyond words! And as for a Julie, on the night she was absolutely sensational. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to run the night, she was 100 different places at once and so calm. I can’t thank you all enough!

I just wanted to send you all a quick email to thank you so much for everything you have done for Brad and I for our wedding.
It was absolutely perfect!

Julie, thank you for looking after Brad, myself and all of our wedding guests on the night. Your service is impeccable, you are a star honestly. You went out of your way to assist us on the evening and it was so greatly appreciated.

Compliments to the chef – everyone who attended haven’t stopped talking about how great the food was and our dessert buffet. My new mother in law has never felt so looked after with her dietary requirements.

The venue looked amazing, the DJ was fantastic no one stopped dancing, leaving by water taxi was the most magical thing I have ever done and finally the night at the Park Hyatt was the icing on the cake.

We would gladly recommend Orso to any couple looking to have a wedding it’s a superb venue with a fabulous team!

Dear Sasha, Amy and Julie,

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so memorable on 9th May 2015. Whilst I’m sure many people tell you their wedding day is the most special day of their lives, we can confirm that our day was made even more so, due to your amazing efforts.

Your help and assistance right from the beginning made planning the wedding an enjoyable and seamless experience. You were able to assist us with all of our requests and queries and nothing was too hard. Your attention to detail and professionalism made the whole experience run smoothly and effortlessly and it made Sean and I feel very confident to have a team as talented and yourselves taking care of the arrangements for us.

Our friends and family were extremely impressed with the service and amazing food. The staff worked so hard on the night to make sure that no one wanted for anything and that the night ran smoothly and efficiently. Thank you also for your help in making our wine vision work! It was a huge success on the night and appreciated by all. Many of our friends have since commented that it was the best wedding they have been to.

There are so many details that we could go into but we will leave it for now with a thank you for everything. We can only imagine how many hours have gone into the preparations and your work behind the scenes and we can’t thank you enough. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and we look forward to recommending you to our family and friends in the future.

Best regards,
Jane and Sean

Hi Amy and Sasha,

Dale and I had our wedding at ORSO on Friday the 27th of March 2015 and I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you so much for our wonderful wedding day.

We could not have asked for a better day, it was honestly the best day of our lives. The reception was fantastic and we could not fault one thing at all. Julie was great throughout the whole night making sure we were both happy and everything was running smoothly. The great touch was even being able to feed the lovely pelicans. Our guests had such a fantastic night and some even said it was the best reception place they have ever been to. We would love to go back and relive our wedding day again but now we just have to remember it by our video and photos.

Once again thank you so much for everything, we could not of asked for anything more.


Wedding of Laura + Dale – 27/03/2015

Dear Julie & Amy,

Just a note to say thank you so much for enabling us to celebrate in style on Saturday evening.

We had a a amazing night. It really was a delight to work with you from the first enquiry to the follow up after the party.

Amy has been delightful and a pleasure to work with all the way through. Polite, courteous and accommodating. Kizzy so helpful on the Saturday for set up and again on the night.
Julie, so fantastic on the night, looking after Barry and I, making sure we always had something to eat and drink – liaising with the DJ, and kept the whole night running smoothly. Wait staff – courteous and helpful and obligingly wearing the jockey silks. Chef – catering to gluten free and dietary requirements.

We really had a fantastic night and have had many compliments on the night, the venue and the staff – so full credit to everyone. You are really catering to the needs of the client and providing a great service and running a fantastic business. We have many friends, around the same age, with children of similar ages and am sure Orso will be on their list for upcoming functions.

We wish you well for future events and would be very happy to host another function with you.

Martin’s Surprise 50th Birthday – 07/06/2015

Hi Julie, Amy, Sasha and the rest of the Orso team,

Luke and I just wanted to say an absolutely huge thank you for the amazing service you provided for our wedding on 16th May.

Luke and I were after a really relaxed, happy, stress-free and fun wedding so when we first met your team we knew we had found the perfect location and team to help us celebrate our day – we didn’t even look at another venue! Your team certainly did an outstanding job and well and truly delivered exactly what we wanted for our wedding.

We had the most amazing night – the atmosphere of the night was exactly as planned and that is thanks to the fantastic job of Julie, the chefs and the service staff as well as Sasha and Amy’s help organising the night. We have received only positive feedback from our guests and they have commented on the excellent food and service they received that night – many have said it was the best and happiest wedding they have been to and Luke and I certainly agree (we may be slightly biased).

A special thank you to Julie – I had heard that you provided incredible service on the night but that does not do justice to how amazing you were!! Luke and I wanted for nothing, never had to worry about anything as Julie handled and organised everything – you made our night fantastic and totally stress free!! You also provided such fantastic service to both of our parents and ensured they had the night of their lives as well – such a special touch.

The venue absolutely shone that night – Luke and I are so grateful that we picked Orso, we could not have had better. When we get our professional photos we will be sure to send some through.

Thank you so much!!!

Wedding of Michaela & Luke – 16/05/2015

From the moment we met you for our first meeting at Orso, everything was managed with such professionalism and friendliness! The night itself was fantastically perfect. It really was! Julie was fantastic on the night and a breath of fresh air after such a long day. The venue looked spectacular – we didn’t want to overdecorate and everything was set up just the way we wanted it! It looked great!! The food was amazing, which we already knew – and our guests were commenting on how tasty each dish was. The service received by Kizzy and your other staff was just exceptional!! No glass was ever empty and everything was so prompt and precise! The service made the night flow smoothly! Julie was on the ball all night!! Rob, our MC (it was his first time at Orso) commented that the venue surprised him! He had never been there before but was glad he finally did! Julie and Rob managed the night so professionally and everything ran to plan smoothly!! A big thank you for the night’s stay at Park Hyatt! It was a beautiful way to end the perfect day – and the champagne and cake was a nice finish!! Our wedding day will be something we will always remember. It was perfect – form the very start, to the very end. Words will never be enough to show just how thankful we are to all of you for your hand in our special day!

Thank you so much, for everything. Your team, venue and service is absolutely amazing.

With all our love and heartfelt thanks, Renae Louise & Tony Currer

We’re currently on our honeymoon in Bali and will write a proper thank you when we get home but just wanted up drop you a quick line.

All of our friends and family we’re completely blown away by the reception. Couldn’t speak highly enough of the venue, service, food, wine, music and the list goes on.

Friends of ours have said that if they had their time again they would get married at Orso!

Everything ran so smoothly on the night. Julie- I’ve never seen anyone operate like you!!! You are truly amazing! You were all over everything- no one wanted for anything and you made the whole night run like clockwork.

Thank you also for organising the champagne and cake for Sean and I at the hotel. So thoughtful of you and it was such a lovely way to finish the evening.

Everything was perfect and so we are so grateful to yourself and Amy for the booking and planning, to Julie and the staff on the night and to the Chefs.

The food, venue, service and experience was all amazing and all went so smoothly on the day. Julie and the staff were so wonderful on the night in looking after us and checking that we were all ok and arranging our bags to go on to the water taxi when we left. We didn’t have to think about anything so thank you so much to the wonderful team!

We received so many great comments on the food from the guests – all the food we chose was delicious!

Every time we came into Orso for a site inspection, Menu tasting and dropping off all things before the Wedding it was always such a lovely experience. You were all so helpful and accommodating and made it very ‘stress free’.

The day was perfect so we thank you so much for everything that you did in the lead up to our special day.

Wedding of Anita + Brad – 17/04/2015

Dave and I just want to thank you once again for the exceptional service you provided to host our wedding – we were absolutely thrilled with the day. Every detail and even the ones we didn’t know of were taken care of without hesitation by your team. Dave and I loved having the surprise of seeing the room completely set up when we entered as husband and wife – it was exactly as we’d hoped and discussed with you – it really exceeded all of our expectations, the attention to detail was fabulous and we didn’t have to worry about a thing on the night.

Your staff were all so warm and friendly to our guests – we’re still receiving compliments about your team from our friends and family which we of course echo! Special thanks to Julie who made Dave and I feel so comfortable, supplied me with flats when my heels were too much on the dancefloor and even packed us some wedding cake for the drive to the hotel…. PLUS along with everything else kept all of our “toddler guests” contained in the venue! Our wedding day was honestly one of the best days we’ve had and that was largely due to the people who helped us put it together – thank you ORSO.

Dave & Gaby Neville - 10/04/2015

From the delicious meals and dessert that were served, to the continuous attendance to the pouring of drinks and to Julie who is just so on top of her job making us feel comfortable, relaxed and happy throughout the whole evening. THANKYOU from the bottom of our hearts.

Tom and I could not be more thankful that we chose to hold the most memorable day to date in our lives at Orso and how beyond our expectations the event was, we left that evening completely feeling on top of the world.

A number present said to us they would have their birthdays and other events there and commented on the table settings and in particular the flower arrangements. You were so helpful in working out with us all the details, so that when the day arrived we had no concerns at all.

We are particularly grateful for the way the staff looked after the grandchildren.

A “well done “all round. Please express our thanks to the staff.

Warm regards,

John and Anne Gray

Heya lovely ladies!

Just a brief hi and THANK YOU for the best help ever for our big day! I had no idea what anything looked like until the day and the whole thing wrapped together phenomenally!

We would be honoured to feature in real weddings (even though everything seemed so surreal to us!) and will come back in a couple weeks with a beaming testimonial, questions filled out and our photos from Dylan to share!!

So much love and gratitude for you, we have been raving about each and every one of you!!!

Wedding of Michelle + Bjorn – 26/01/2015

Hi Sasha, Just wanted to send a really quick email to say a huge thank you for such a great Xmas Party last year. Everyone had such a great time and I really appreciated being able to step back and enjoy the party!! (I got so into the swing of things that I forgot to say bye at the end of the day! How embarrassing – so sorry!) Thanks again for all your help (wish organising all our Xmas Parties was as easy as last year!!) Take care, Chris.

You were so lovely and efficient and the planning process was made that much more easy and enjoyable working with you.

Kizia, Jon and I commented to each other more than once on the day about how hard you were working on the floor, always with a smile on your face and a look of focus in your eyes…we could see you had it covered.

Julie, even our guests noticed how wonderfully you did your job, Jon and I had to laugh when we found baklava in our getaway bag, the comment was “Julie thinks of everything!”

All we can say is thank you, we couldn’t be happier with how the day went and how happy our guests were. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
