Wedding Reception for 140 guests
“I cannot emphasise enough how impeccable The Grounds was in contributing to our incredible day. We wanted exceptional and you guys happily went beyond that. We are constantly confronted with our family and friends raving about the lamb, the ravioli, and the dumplings! Our parents were amazed by the professionalism of the restaurant manager. Our guests adored the aesthetics of the environment. The attentive nature of the wait staff has also definitely made mention. The beauty of it is that this was the personality of The Grounds throughout the planning process too! What a wonderful experience we had with you guys. So many thank you’s.”

Immersive Dinner Experience for 120 guests
Collaborating with The Grounds on our biggest annual event of the year, once again proved to be a huge success. Their entire team commit 100% to ensuring a next level experience, and again for us they exceeded all expectations! Their creative approach to every element of our event produced unique, once in a lifetime touch points that resulted in a premium evening for our guests. Liquid delights, divine gastronomy on top of being entertained in special spaces, that just aren’t the norm, left us all wanting more.

Full Day Conference for 155 guests
“The service provided by The Grounds at Whoa! Studio’s was absolutely impeccable, which made for a good conference experience for us. The Journey from meeting with Rebecca Nelson, to discuss our vision, to executing this with Jade Thorne and Ben Bayly, was seamless and never a request too big! Our staff thoroughly enjoyed the visual experience of the amazingly crafted Treehouse studio and the culinary experience provided by Ben and Mike. The venue has everything you need to take your event to the next level by providing something ‘outside of the box’, however, never faulting on professional service that you would find in a conference centre/hotel.”
