Wedding at We The Curious

Inspite of constant restrictions and uncertainty regarding if and how our wedding would take place, Ross and his amazing events team Inc catering and Planetarium staff went well beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Attentive, responsive, patient and creative team having to manage change right upto the week before the wedding. Always positive and solution focused. Highly recommend.
