Central Coast Wedding Testimonials

Thank you to Terry and Josh. The service was amazing. But you were more than a “service” to us. You became family. You made the unforgettable and you paid every attention to every detail. I highly recommend you not just for quality of service but for your genuine care and support.

Absolutely amazing!! My husband and I got married on Friday and everything was completely perfect! Terry is so friendly and professional and handled every message, email and phone call we made, even with the smallest of changes, perfectly! The venue is so captivating, with a gorgeous setting for an outdoor wedding, and provides absolutely everything you could need, rain hail or shine. Terry took care of the decorating and set up (which was all stunning!) and provided us with so many examples leading up to our day. This venues food selection… oh my goodness!- DELICIOUS!! We had a mix of vegan, gluten intolerant and children, as well as standard meals, and not a single person complained about their meal choice. Absolute value for money this place! Any couple would be crazy to NOT check out Linton Gardens! We completely fell in love with this place, the staff, and especially Terry. Thank you so much for making our day unforgettable.

Evening Terry, Thank you very much for an excellent day yesterday. All members of our group had a wonderful time. They were all impressed with the venue and your surroundings. The food was plentiful and delicious and the service and attention by your “staff” was first class. We enjoyed the entertainment, the effort put into the three hours by the singer was amazing and the variety of songs appealed to all ages. Thank you again and thanks also for the information regarding upcoming events and other function that can be arranged at Linton Gardens. Best wishes to you and Donna for a continued successful future.

My husband Hayden and I were married on the 2nd of September at the Linton Gardens. Terry was professional and helpful at all times and nothing I asked seemed to be too much trouble. He always got back to me in a timely manner unlike a few other venues who we approached originally who never emailed or called us back and weeks went by. Terry was fabulous at helping with the supply and set up of the data projector and screen for our chapel slide show (though this is not a normal request) and putting the coloured sashes I wanted on the chairs. He also helped move tables, chairs and equipment for us. This made for a very smooth transition on the day. He let us use the chapel the day before to rehearse at no extra charge and leave our equipment in there for the next day. Seriously my day came off without a hitch (who can really say that about their wedding??). The food was decent and the price which included free use of the chapel or gardens for the ceremony as well as canipes and a 3 course meal for my guests. Also alcohol was included and all table decorations etc. at the reception. This is something you would be hard pressed to find at another venue on the Central Coast for under $100 per person. The Linton Gardens is reputable and friends have also been married here over the years and been satisfied with the services received. They are a well oiled machine. If you are planning your wedding don’t risk it somewhere else and be ripped off you can trust Terry.

Dear Terry Thank you once again for helping us make our wedding an incredibly special day. You were professional, courteous and helpful to a fault, and an incredible source of stability for us under hectic and stressful circumstances. I’d like to apologise for the delay in the ceremony and thank you as well for working with us both as far as the schedule of the day, and around the weather issues that came up. My husband says you were very patient with him as he tried to figure out the best way to hold the ceremony as the weather shifted.

“Linton Gardens was such a wonderful wedding venue. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the staff are wonderful. Terry was such a great help with planning and communication was quick and easy. The packages available include so much for such a low price (especially comparing with other venue prices) and what is included takes out a lot of the planning because you get so much in it. We were supposed to have our ceremony in the garden and our reception in the marquee but unfortunately we had extremely bad weather so had to make the decision to move everything indoors the day prior. The staff did this so willingly and quickly and were so helpful throughout the process.”

When you make the decision on a wedding venue many things contribute to where you decide on. Obviously cost, location and quality make up a big part and in our research Linton Gardens lead the way in each category. There was also another factor though that no other venue can offer and that is Terry. Terry is the man who will absolutely ensure your wedding will be exactly as you want it to be, he will speak with you and make the dream that you have wanted happen. We had rain on the day but seriously Terry weaved his magic and it was as if it was just meant to be with how it all worked out, The inside venue for the ceremony was perfect and the reception area just blew us away. We seriously couldn’t have asked for any more. The venue itself is just beautiful with the ceremony, reception and all photos being able to be all in the same place. The food was just perfect and highly praised by our guests and the staff were only too happy to assist with the allergies of guests that we had as well. I honestly can’t give Terry and his staff any higher praise than to say they made our wedding day perfect and I know you would never regret holding your special day there too.

So, once again, thank you”.

We chose to serve only vegetarian and vegan food – and it was enjoyed by our guests. We loved the location, setting, Terry’s assistance, options offered, catering, and having it all go smoothly.
