Caity Lord (Bride) - June 2017
Completely over the moon with the generosity and help we are receiving from Cassegrain Winery. The wedding coordinator, Carolyn, is so lovely and helpful. I can’t recommend them enough for a wedding venue!!
Laura Heyward - 3 April 2017
"We recently got married at Cassegrain's and cannot fault Carolyn and her amazing team at Seasons Cafe. Carolyn went above and beyond to make our day so special and all of the food was incredible! All of our guests raved about not only how delicious it was but the amount of food on offer! Thanks you so much from the new Mr and Mrs Heyward :)
Brendan Eakin and Samantha Bouhricha - 27 March 2017
"We both wanted to thank you again for all your effort, hard work, patience trying to communicate by email and all the extras you did for our big day, which helped make our day perfect!
Particularly a big thank you for your kind gesture in organising the chair covers as a surprise- they looked amazing and complimented the room so well on the day! Thank you also for organising the kids corner (and play pen/jail!) which I know many of the parents really appreciated and commented on being such a good idea!
Also a massive thank you for the drinks and canapes you personally brought down to the grounds for Brendan and I, it kept us going through the photos and drinks after the ceremony were just what we needed on such a lovely warm day :) The list of extras goes on: the extra snail canapes you served went down like a treat! Everyone loved trying them :)
Also thank you for allowing us to use the formal gardens at no extra charge! We are still waiting to receive the photos from the photographer but the small preview we've seen look amazing in the grounds! So thank you for making that possible!
The day couldn't have gone any better, it ran so smoothly and all the staff worked excellently well together, so a massive thank you for your hard work and the huge team effort! We had written a Thank you card to the whole team at Cassegrains but unfortunately on the Saturday itself, with so much going on it seemed to have been misplaced, so sorry we weren't able to thank them!
The grounds were beautiful and the Barrell room was so unique for our wedding, we will definitely have great memories for years to come! The icing on the cake though was your amazing help from start to finish, which we can't thank you enough for! Helping us organise the whole wedding from abroad was a lot easier and stress free than I originally imagined.
We would definitely recommend Cassegrain Wines and your services to anyone we know looking to have a future wedding or function in an amazing location! We'd like to think that maybe one of these days when we are passing by Port Macquarie, we'll pop in and say hi and maybe celebrate our anniversary at Cassegrains :)
Take care and good luck for the future Carolyn!"
Cameron and Amanda Knox - 15 March 2017
"Cameron and I would like to take this opportunity to extend an enormous thank you for making our day as amazing as it was. We were constantly astounded by your willingness and ability to help us with every decision that needed to be made on the lead up to our wedding. Your helpful suggestions took the worry and confusion away at a time that can be very overwhelming. Your help with the design and setup of the ceremony and reception was more than we imagined we would get from our venue. The food and service was outstanding. The waitstaff were all very friendly and constantly had a smile on their face which was such a welcoming feeling throughout the whole event.
Thank you for everything you did to help us celebrate our special day. Not only is the venue beautiful but you are your team are a credit to your profession. When we look back on our day, not only do we think of how easily the day ran, but also how much of a difference you made. We have no doubt that should we have chosen a different venue, we would not have received the same level of service. You were above and beyond.
We would highly recommend Cassegrain to anyone who is looking for a venue, not matter what the function is. Once again, thank you for everything you did to make our special day as memorable as it was."

"We would like to sincerely thank Cassegrains for making our wedding reception so perfect. We were always looking for a unique reception venue that had that something special about it and we found it at Cassegrains. The Barrel Room was an incredible venue with so much rustic character and charm and it enabled us to really showcase Port Macquarie and Cassegrains to our family and friends.
The wine was of course amazing and the food delicious. A huge thank you to the fantastic staff, in particular Carolyn, the events manager, for all of her hard work in organising our special day. Carolyn was an absolute pleasure to deal with right from the start and we are so grateful to her for her patience and attention to detail. She made our evening so memorable!
We would not hesitate in recommending Cassegrains and the Barrel Room for a wonderful and unforgettable wedding reception."

"I'm writing to say a belated, but huge thank you! Thank you for all your help in the lead up to our big day.
You were incredibly accommodating, and went above and beyond what we expected to ensure our day was perfect. And it was! We are so grateful to you and your team for all your preparation, service and clean up. You made our day easy, and took away any stress.
You provided delicious food, a stunning venue and everything we could have asked for. We sincerely thank you and your staff from the bottom of our hearts. We would and will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks."
Carolyn Munroe - 20 October 2015
"We can't thank you enough for everything you and your team did to ensure the wedding was so very successful. Laura and Michale had a fantastic day which they will remember for the rest of their lives. Thanks again!"
Marion Smith - 18 October 2015
"Our daughter's wedding was the first cab off the rank since change of management. John Cassegrain and particularly Carolyn Fowler could not have been more helpful. They pulled together an amazing wedding in just four days and we can't thank them enough. Carolyn has worked non stop and i spoke to her yesterday morning before 8 when she was at the venue setting up, and she was still there last night with her husband Rex and daughter Kate cleaning up and finishing off at 11:30 when we left. She was still smiling and giving us the most amazing service right to the end."
