The venue itself is incredible, such a beautiful place to have a wedding. It was by far the best we visited in the lead up to our wedding. The only thing that put us off booking straight away, is that it was a bit more expensive than some other options, but you most definitely get what you pay for. I really feel we had great value for money and many times we’ve mentioned how thankful we are that we stretched the budget to ensure we had our wedding there.Sent on 02/08/2019
Firstly, the staff – Massive credit to all of them. We had Hayley as our personal contact throughout the whole experience and she was fantastic. You could tell from the beginning she was very experienced and knew exactly what made a great wedding. No request was too much and we felt they were hugely accommodating to some requests outside the norm. I also have to credit the head chef, Michael, as we wanted food that had an Arabic twist, which is not something usually offered, but the food was incredible – Make sure you do the tasting event, to sample the food first. This really helped with our decisions on what to have for canapés etc. On the day itself, all of the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable. For example, each guest on the table received their food at exactly the same time, which in my opinion, is a really nice touch and something guests commented they really appreciated.
Even a year later, we still get people commenting about the venue, food, service etc. which is testament to how excellent it was. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking at having their wedding or event at Rivervale Barn.

Once we visited Rivervale Barn we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding. This was the second marriage for both of us and we wanted a venue that was simple but elegant. We got what we wanted and more! From the time we booked our date to the time we left the venue the morning after our wedding we were so pleased with the wonderfully professional, helpful and gracious service of our wedding coordinator, Hayley Baker. The food was amazing, the service fantastic, the staff kind and efficient. All my guests were raving about the day. Hayley even provided the weather that she promised!! I couldn't have asked for a better day.Sent on 18/10/2017

5 star service
My daughter was married here this week and what a fantastic wedding it was. Michaela who is one of the event managers ensured that everything ran smoothly, nothing was too much trouble and we were all there just to enjoy the day. The food was amazing, the service was 5 star and the gardens beautiful. What more can I say!Sent on 22/06/2017
