To Isabel, Tessa & all the crew at Osteria,
THANK YOU!!! Words will never do justice to just how perfect our wedding day was at Osteria. From the minute I saw the venue way back last year, I loved it & knew it was right. We wanted a fun, casual yet sophisticated wedding & you delivered it perfectly. Nothing was ever a problem & you went above & beyond. We really do want to thank you all for your help to make the day run perfectly. To the wait staff & the amazing chefs/kitchen staff - thank you. For accomodating all our dietary requirements (all my pregnant friends are still talking about the food)!
Isabel - thank you for answering our endless emails (especially about wine)!! You never once made us feel like we were painful (although I am sure we were at times)!
Tessa - thank you for running the evening seamlessly. You were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble & you delivered. My parents & our MC couldn't speak highly enough of you. Thank you! I hear you may have shed a tear too in our speeches (you weren't the only one)!!!
Thank you again. You are all amazing! I wish we could do it all again!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything that you did to make sure Sufyaan and I had the most incredible wedding! It is definitely a day I will never forget, and because of you, my dream wedding was achieved. I hope to see you soon and I will definitely be back at Osteria.
I just wanted to email you to say a big big thank-you to Osteria and yourself for helping us have the most amazing wedding night! We have had so many guests contact us over the past couple weeks to say that the reception was so beautiful and that the food was amazing (especially the lamb shanks! lol). The whole night was everything Kerrod and I could have hoped for, and more, and we cannot thank you enough for all your help along the way and for helping it all go so smoothly on the day. You did such an amazing job and we just wanted to say thank-you.
Although the wedding day is over now, we will of course be popping in to enjoy a breakfast from time to time, and we hope to see you around 😊

Good Morning Tess and Isabel,
Just wanted to shoot an email to say thank you so much for all your work for our wedding on 19th May (the day that it didnt stop raining hahaha)
You guys honestly made the day run so smoothly, and everyone just had the best time! Tess you calmed my nerves, and even though it was torrential rain you calmed me and reassured me how amazing the inside ceremony would be.
The food, drinks, staff etc were impeccable! Everyone just said how amazing it all was.

Good evening beautiful ladies,
I just wanted to thank you both so much for making our wedding so unbelievably perfect. It was everything I imagined and more. Your friendly faces and genuine care for us and our guests didn't go unnoticed and it is so clear that you know and love your job.
Your staff were fantastic, from the wait staff who ensured our guests had a drink in hand and enjoyed their time, to the chefs who served up delicious food- thank you all!

Dear Isabel and Team
Apologies that it has take me some time to write this to say a huge thank you for all your work and efforts to make our wedding at your venue amazing.
I have been telling all that will listen how impressed I was with everything, from start to finish.
Firstly thanks so much to your back of house team for the delicious food that was plentiful, beautifully presented and all super tasty. I loved it all especially the lemon meringue tart. :)
Thanks also to your team who clean up, set up and present the venue in such a magic way. Given the number of times they have done this they have it down to a fine art & it looks absolutely beautiful.
Thank you also to all of your front of house who were always smiling, helpful, and accomodating throughout the entire night. They made us feel like it was a special night for them, (not just that they were paid to be there.) Which is really a credit given I expect they have been to more weddings than most.
Also a big thanks to the owners who were super quick to say yes to an unusual request. Allowing the fire twirlers to perform was super & I think gave all our guests a real memory to take home with them.
Last but not least, Isabel thanks so much for all the advise and help with planning and also the details on the day. I was so impressed by how happy, helpful, professional and lovely you were throughout the whole process especially on the day (when I know it was an extra for you).
Isabel you and your team are a real credit to Osteria, and will be remembered fondly for making our big day so special.
If there is anything that I can do to help in anyway please don't hesitate to contact me.
(Also I would send this directly to your boss if I knew how -maybe you can forward it on. :))
Keep up the amazing work & good luck with all your future endeavours.

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your assistance in the lead up to and on the night of our wedding. You and your staff were very attentive - the service was excellent. We have received many comments from our guests on how great the food was - we both loved the meals, especially the hot chocolate tart. Nothing was too much trouble for you on the night - including you offer to drive us home at the end of the night. That was completely unnecessary but the offer was very much appreciated. We had a fantastic wedding at Osteria and would not hesitate to recommend your venue to friends and family.
Thank you once again

First of all I just wanted to say thank you for booking us in on the weekend for the food tasting. I have not had an experience like that in quite some time.
The staff were amazing and friendly and the chef, well I don’t even know where to start! She made us feel so welcome and confident in the food and was so full of all the information we required, my parents in law were very impressed.
The food was the most amazing food that I have had in a long time and I am excited that my guests get to eat that on our day! We will definitely be coming back every year on our wedding anniversary to eat that amazing food.
Thank you so much once again for everything I am getting quite excited

"The staff at Osteria were amazingly helpful both the night before and on the day. Our Osteria wedding coordinator on the day, Isobel, was lovely and made sure everything ran smoothly. Deborah Sandor was always ready to answer our questions and was wonderful about meeting with my parents about the venue when they travelled from interstate. Many of our guests remarked that it was the most beautiful food that they had ever had at a wedding. We are so happy that we organised our venue through Casuarina Weddings, Osteria was everything we had dreamed of.
We really wanted our wedding to be a reflection of us as a couple, we didn't want to do things simply because it was expected at a wedding. Osteria was the perfect space for this, it was a blank canvas where we were able to craft a wedding that suited us and celebrated our love for each other perfectly"

I have been meaning to write to thank you for all your help for our wedding on the 8th!
Craig and I had the best day and will treasure memories of our wedding forever. The work by Lauren, Elise and Steve and Isabel exceeded our expectations - the venue looked incredible, the food was delicious, the Osteria staff were excellent, it was just perfect. And we couldn't have been happier with the weather for our outdoors reception!
So many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue looked, the feasting style meals, being outdoors for the reception and how much they enjoyed their time at Casuarina, some even extended their stay!
Many thanks again,

"Amazing food, drinks and service...everyone was raving from start to finish and days after! The garden area of Osteria was looking beautiful and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather to have our ceremony outside."

"We wanted to reach out and thank you so much for making our day so special. The team at Osteria were fantastic and very professional, and everything was better than we could have hoped. The food was incredible (the lamb! the potatoes!!) - so many people also commented that they couldn't get over how delicious it all was. We loved that it was all shared as well as it made for a much warmer, casual environment.
Thanks again for all of your help with Osteria and coordinating everything - it was the perfect venue for us and it was a magical afternoon and evening!"

"We have to say the biggest thank you to you all. It was the best day of our entire lives and I say that with all honesty. The venue and your staff and food and service was just INCREDIBLE. Isabel knows how much we loved her but honestly I just want to tell you how fantastic she is! As are you! We could not have asked for anything more from you all. So thanks from the bottom of our hearts."

Words cannot express how grateful we were for your part in making our day soooo special. Your professionalism and attention to detail, just made us all so relaxed. I had complete confidence that it would be like that and it was.
We had a few people from the food and wine industry there and they were all so impressed too. We feel part of the Osteria family now so it will always have a special spot in my heart.
Please thank all the staff for us. They were fantastic.
I could keep going on about how we feel. I know it was the best night of Jon's and Maggie's life but other than the day we adopted that gorgeous kid...it was our best too.
~ Denise and Phil
"It was the most magical day and the experience of planning a wedding was made so much sweeter by your lovely staff.
From Deb, to Isabel to Tessa nothing was too much trouble for any of them and they all made us feel comfortable and special from the beginning of this process to the big day.
Also the professionalism of your staff on the day was second to none.
I have been recommending Osteria to anyone I encounter and I can't wait for many more breakfasts, lunches and dinners at your beautiful venue.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
