Our dreams come true!

We are overwhelmed with our wedding being more magical, personal and better than we could ever have dared hope. The exceptional service from Anita and the team at The Exmouth Country Lodge wedding venue made every aspect easy and stress free. Anita has such knowledge and passion for making every wedding the best it can be, she’s genuinely as dedicated as if it were her own day. The venue offered us the perfect balance of relaxed and informal but with a rustic charm. Being able to access the venue and stay on site meant we got everything done (with Anita’s generous assistance!) the day before and we and our guests were thoroughly looked after for what turned out to be our perfect wedding! Anita recommended the DJ (DJ Shindig) & caterers (The Ginger Pig Hog Roast co.) who turned out to be perfect for us and the use of the outside space for lawn games & general mingling was wonderful. We are still blown away a week later and haven’t stopped re-living every moment - thank you so very much from Earl & Sally Napier.

The perfect venue

Not only was this the perfect venue, but it was the perfect place for the bridal party to get ready and stay - both the night before and the night of the wedding. Anita was wonderful in the planning stages and put our minds at ease.

Perfect venue for a rustic wedding. Great accommodation options.

Anita was really helpful in supporting us planning our wedding and helping it go smoothly.
Correspondence was timely, even through the winter season.
Only downside of the venue is the decibel limit which impacts on having a live band. We also would have liked to be able to have music prior to the evening.
Overall very happy with our choice to f venue.
