    Perfect day

    Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be - we couldn't have wished for a better day. You did an amazing job - it was really relaxed yet organised! And was just the atmosphere we hoped for.

    Thank you!

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work in helping us to make Sunday a very special day. It went so well, everyone commented on the venue, on how brilliant it was and how it worked so well for the kids. Your team were so on it on the day and the band also commented on how helpful all the staff were. Thanks for your professionalism and support and everything from the tastings, to table set up, video showing and sound. I would highly recommend it as a venue to anyone. Thanks for looking after me and calming my nerves! I’ve always loved coming to the BAC to see gigs and shows but now it has a special place in my heart.

    Truly magnificent!

    We had a truly amazing day, thank you! All our guests were blown away by BAC, from the building to the food to the friendliness of all the staff. Praise was also heaped on Frankie's food - particularly the homemade taste (that's a massive compliment) and the gigantic pavlova.
