Read what some of our wonderful couples have to say about their experience at Babalou!

Kahlia, thank you so much for the support throughout this process, there were definitely parts we were clueless about that you helped us with to build our vision so well. The final product blew our minds and it was such an amazing night, the team and yourself definitely went above and beyond, we are very grateful.”

Kara + Sam

“We walked into the reception and were absolutely speechless. It looked so stunning. Everything was styled in the most perfect way, it was just so beautiful and we are still lost for words at how the whole venue looked! All of our guests were not only continually telling us how incredible the space was but also how delicious the food was too.

All in all though, I don’t think words could be enough to say how grateful we are for everything, not just on the day but for the last 12 months or so. From the decor, food, service, coordination, everything. We were so impressed. Everything was thought of and taken care of!”

“Our whole experience with the Babalou team has been amazing and we feel truly lucky to have had such a beautiful wedding.

Jodi, from our first contact you were so easy to talk to and shared all the information we needed to make a decision on a venue for our special day, and the icing on the cake was having Kahlia coordinate our day.

Kahlia, you are amazing at what you do and your passion for your job shined through every time I asked a silly question. You kept the hype going from planning to execution and we really couldn’t have done it without you. 

Our friends and family have all raved about the experience and that it was one of the best weddings they have been to and everyone loved the food! So thank you, thank you for your passion, thank you for your patience and thank you for making our day so perfect.”

“Kahlia and the Babalou team were so great in helping us plan and execute our special day. We booked a Saturday afternoon wedding with their ceremony and reception package. We held our ceremony at the Rowan Robinson park across the road and they took care of council permits and basic ceremony items. For the reception we went with the 2 course share plate options (everyone was raving about the beef cheek) and had a set of late night pizzas brought out about 9:30. Can’t thank the team enough”

“Kahlia and the team from Babalou were great to deal with when we had our reception there a few weeks ago. Kahlia was very accomodating and listened to what we wanted to create our magical day.

Great communication throughout and was very helpful with the lead up to the wedding especially on the day. We have had multiple comments about how wonderful our reception was especially the venue itself and the food was amazing – we couldn’t be more happier with the Babalou team.

Highly recommend.”

“My husband and I had our reception here and it was such an amazing wedding venue!!!!

I was so impressed with all the staff on the night they were so attentive to not only the bridal party, parents of the bride/groom, the grandparents but to all of our guests! It was set up so beautiful with the soft festoon lighting, plentiful space to seat 110 people, an area for a photo-booth, outdoor smoking area and a great dance floor with room for a band. The food was perfect, all our guests have raved about high quality it was, so big thank you to the chef Steve!

Leading up to the day we were able to access the room a number of times which was very helpful to figure out table seating arrangements and to practice our first dance!

Thank you so much to Mimi, Jodi and all the team! You really did make this bride’s special day even more special!”

Sarah + Jay Wrobel
