Testimonials

Caitlin & Josh

Well, where to start!?  Thank you all so much for everything that you did for Josh and me, not only on our wedding day but throughout the whole planning process.  There is no where else like it.  We cannot thank Catherine, Mandy and Denise enough for all of their help.  You took the stress out of the planning process and made the lead up to the day all the more special.  All I had to worry about on the day was making sure I was ready on time! 

We have had so many comments from our guests about what a fantastic day it was, how beautiful the flowers were, how well the Lake House team organised the day and of course how amazing the food was.  It really was so special to be able to have our wedding at Lake House! 

We cannot recommend Lake House highly enough! Thank you also for recommending Shaun from Image Eight to us.  We could not have asked for anything more.  He knows the Lake House so well and we have the most beautiful photos.

It really was such a joy to have our wedding at such a beautiful venue.  Maybe one day we will have to renew our vows so that we can do it all again!  We cannot wait to get back to Lake House – it will always hold a very special place in our hearts.  Hope to see you all one day soon.

Love Caitlin & Josh

Eliza & Anthony

Wow! We've just got back from our honeymoon and we're still talking about what a wonderful wedding we had at the Lake House! Anthony and I want to say a special thank you for all the thoughtful planning in organising such a flawless wedding for us - it really came together like a dream. The whole day went beautifully at every step and we felt wonderfully "looked after" by all of the Lake House staff, as did all of our guests (especially our elderly friend Barbara, who was sick with pneumonia but I hear was brought a hot drink straight away when she arrived). The food was superb as was Alla's final menu design - the flavours of each and every part of every dish were exquisite and perfectly fine-tuned; the waiting staff looking after us were so gracious and accommodating and went about the service with superb organisation. We couldn't have been more impressed. Our guests have also given us similar feedback. Everyone has said they really had the best day and thought that the Lake House provided the most gorgeous location, food and service.

Finally, a special thank you to the very talented Denise for the spectacular flowers! The room looked absolutely heavenly with all the hyacinths, jonquils and "happy wanderer", the cake was so artistically festooned as well, and the bouquets were the perfect complement to our dresses. In fact my bouquet was so pretty there was a shocking (but hilarious) "rugby moment" when I tossed it to the single girls line-up - the catcher of the bouquet insisting that the only reason she sent herself flying through the air in the way of the other girls was because she "just really liked the flowers"

So, thanks to everyone who helped pull the day together, we couldn't be happier with how it all went, and we look forward to coming back to revisit our happy day on future anniversaries.

We are writing in to say a big Thank you for organizing our pre wedding lunch at the Lake house. We know there had to be some last minute changes but you were so accommodating.

The food and service was just out of this world. All our friends really enjoyed the food and they are still talking about it. We really couldn't have asked for more. We have to mention that the young waiter at our table was very attentive, professional and just a delight to have with us. We do know it can be a difficult task taking care of such a huge group but both waiters did it effortlessly. We have fallen in love with daylesford and will definately be back to visit and eat at the lake house. We are still singing your praises all the way to Metung in East Gippsland.

Once again, many thanks to all involved, especially the Head Chef David Green, who deserves more chef hats and a raise in my opinion!! we only wish we could get him for the main wedding in England!

Lize-Mari & Adrian 

Thank you so much for all the planning, organising, and making sure everything went smoothly on our wedding weekend. The ceremony was perfect, the flowers were beautiful (everyone commented on how lovely the arrangements were) and with our dinner in the Cellar Room the service and food were excellent (once again, general consensus!). A special thank you for remembering my food allergy and catering for it.

We could not have had a more perfect weekend, thank you all again and we will definitely remember The Lake House for any future special events.

Melody & Neil 

Just a note to say a big thanks for making our wedding day so special, we had a wonderful day and received many compliments from our guests about the food and the table arrangements. The table looked absolutely FANTASTIC, it was exactly what I wanted and the photos we have of it are stunning! Denise did an excellent job of the flowers and candles I couldn't have asked for more. Our guests were blown away by the room.

The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. Our biggest thrill was to hear our guests say that it is the most memorable, personal and initimate wedding that they have been to and this can be amongst other things, attributed to the great location & food.Thankyou so much

We look forward to having our anniversary dinner at the Lake House next year!

Katie & Charlie

We just wanted to  say a huge thank you for organising our wedding. We really had the most amazing and perfect day and without all of your help, patience  and attention to detail it would not have been such a wonderful day.

We have had so many comments from our friends and family on how fantastic it was and how much they loved the venue. Everyone had the best time. Everything was just excellent - the food, the service, the support  all the staff gave us both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day, the flowers (I will thank Denise separately too - she did a brilliant job) and the set-up, both the ceremony and reception room looked stunning.

We both have such fond memories; my only complaint was that it all went by so quickly! Thanks again for everything, we really appreciate it.

David & Donna

Dear Catherine, Mandy, Denise and the amazing team at Lake House!

You thought of and delivered everything for us and our families, we are so very grateful for your care and expertise with our Wedding. More than a month has passed us by since our wonderful Wedding in breathtaking Daylesford at Lake House.

We had a “picture perfect” experience from its humble beginnings 12 months before, when we lunched at Lake House with our friends, from that moment on; we knew Lake House was where we would love to “get married.”

Shaun, our talented photographer captured our day, as he was here, there and everywhere, incredibly fit and energetic, but in the same breath, was invisible and had a calming energy which surrounded him, a very passionate man whom is like you, professional and dedicated to their craft.

A special thanks to the staff, Vivi, Aziz, and the beautiful French girl, whom catered for us during our culinary experience. Edward was also impeccable with his service and attention to every detail.

We loved our blissful and serene accommodation, nestled in amongst Mother Nature; it just seemed to sit in perfect harmony with its surroundings.

A sincere personal thanks to Alla & Allan Wolf –Tasker on behalf of the Haddon and Rankin Families for their vision, creativity and desire to the build the dream, how lucky we all are to be able to have graced the shoreline and engaging playground of Lake Daylesford and the formidable Lake House with all its beauty.

Our every need was catered for and beyond, so thank you, so very much from the depths of our hearts and souls!

Take care all of you....we will see you again.

Warmest Regards

Donna & David Rankin. Xoxo
