Meet couples who placed their trust in the Mali Brae Team
We were able to speak with all of our guests beyond “thanks for coming, enjoy the meal”
The Mali Brae team went above and beyond anything we imagined. We knew it would be fabulous, but we didn’t realise how fabulous.
We envisaged our wedding being intimate. Our families combined were pushing 400 (not even including friends or semi-distant relatives!) and it just wasn’t us to have a showy event and be on display.
We envisaged our wedding being intimate. Our families combined were pushing 400 (not even including friends or semi-distant relatives!) and it just wasn’t us to have a showy event and be on display. The engagement bliss fell a bit when excitement turned to stress as we realised how big the guest list was going to be. So we had only the nearest and dearest: 38 people including the bridal party and it was the best decision ever. We were able to speak with all of our guests beyond “thanks for coming, enjoy the meal”, and even though the farm is beautifully large, Mali Brae made our small wedding work like a dream with a gorgeous long table in Augustine’s Room.
We first came to visit Mali Brae 12 months earlier. It was the first venue we visited and we didn’t end up visiting any others. From the onset, the planning was made so easy with the planning space that included recommendations (including florals by Blush and Bloom, and photography by Thomas Stewart), concepts, and styles. The communication throughout was excellent with notifications and updates – something we were desperately grateful for given how much goes into a wedding, how much you forget, and how fast the time flies when planning!
The food was out of this world. With a huge range of options to choose from, and very accomodating to dietary restrictions, there’s nowhere to go wrong. Every guest was blown away by how good the food was, and we can genuinely say that with 40-ish people because we were able to get around and talk to them all! Many of our guests in the planning stage were confused by our choices and the lack of tradition, but at the end of the night raved about it and how great the venue was for exactly that…
We can’t imagine being married anywhere else. It was a truly magical day, in a truly magical venue, by a truly magical team. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
They knew what we wanted or needed before we even got a chance to ask
The whole team at Mali Brae are absolutely amazing. I physically don’t know how to put into words how perfect they all are. Greg, Shelley, Amelia, Grace, Will, Krisna, and the rest of the team made our torrentially wet day the absolute best of our lives. While the venue excels on any given day, when it comes to dealing with wet weather it’s on a whole beautiful level of its own.
We ended up hiring out the Augustine room which turned out to be the best decision – our guests stayed dry and we enjoyed a beautiful and warm dance floor just off the main reception. The cabin available on site is perfect for the couple to spend in the night of, with no fear of getting from place to place at the end of a massive night. Our bridal party also appreciated being able to unwind and warm up (and dry out) in the cabin after the ceremony before the reception. The whole team seems to be just so tuned in to everyone, it was almost like they knew what we wanted or needed before we even got a chance to ask.
