We just both wanted to thank you for making our special day truly the most beautiful day of our lives. Even though we only had 2 months to plan the whole wedding from scratch, you guys made the whole process very easy, smooth and stress free. The venue was immaculate, the food spectacular, and the service efficient and flawless. – Malak and Ali - 24 April 2016

I wanted to let you know it was an absolutely incredible day. We have not been able to stop talking about our wedding at Markovina. We actually had no idea a wedding could be as amazing as it was and we both agree that it was the best day of our lives! Our guests also had a blast with many saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to! The scenery, the food, everything was perfect! The ceremony was magical. I also wanted to let you know your staff, the servers were excellent and so attentive and kind, throughout the whole day and night. We and our guests are still beaming (and will for a long time) on what an amazing wedding it was. Our only regret is that the day went by so fast! – Nikki & Geoff - 26 October 2015

Thank you so much for everything you [mark] and Rina did! Dan and I absolutely loved every moment, we’re still smiling and talking about how perfect it was. We've had so many comments from our guests about how beautiful the venue is, and how much they enjoyed the food!! We really appreciate everything and we couldn't have asked for a better day :)– Michelle & Dan - 7 March 2015

Quintin and I just wanted to say a big huge thank you to you and Rina for everything you did for us leading up to and on Sunday for our wedding. We could not have picked a better venue to have our wedding at. The gardens and reception area were amazing, the food was divine and Rina's continual support and checking in with us throughout the night was fantastic. We forgot our cake topper and were stressing a little bit about it and Rina went out to the garden and picked us some beautiful flowers to put on top of our wedding cake to finish it off. We could not be more happy with the amazing service, care and attention to detail that was put into making our wedding perfect from Markovina. So from us both a huge thank you and we will be recommending Markovina to everyone that is looking for a fabulous venue!– Nicola & Quintin - 25 January 2015

I would like to thank you on behalf of my husband and I for a great day on Thursday 4/12/2014. Not only was the service provided by Rena and her staff amazing but the venue was also set up so beautifully. Out of the 150 guests that were there,not a single person had anything bad to say about the venue, service and staff. A huge thank you to Rena who made sure the guest were taken care of when we were taking photos and for making everyone feel so welcome. A big thank you to the chef who prepared the food. Not only was the food beautifully prepared but it also tasted great too. Many people at the reception mentioned that they have been to many weddings and our wedding has been the best wedding they have ever attended and I know a lot of that has to do with Rena and her amazing service and staff. I would gladly recommend your stunning location to anyone who is looking to book an event in the near future. Once again thank you so much for providing such a great experience, not only for my husband and I but for all the guests who were are part of our special day. – Douglas & Cassandra - 4 December 2014

On the 11th October the weather turned on the loveliest day and our daughter’s wedding at your venue was everything we hoped it would be. Our guests commented on the beauty of the setting, the friendliness of the staff and the delicious food, of which there was more than enough. We would like to thank you for your time, patience and help in the planning and for the superb service on the day. Markovina Vineyard is a spectacular venue that impressed our guests and one that we would be very happy to recommend. – Julie Cohen - 11th October 2014

Apart from the obvious; friends and family, both of us looking quite dashing, the thing which simply made the day unforgettable and who deserve so much thanks was the venue: Markovina Vineyard Estate. Rina, Mark, the team and entire staff were absolutely the best crowd to work with and they did whatever they could do to help us, make sure we were advised right through, keeping us up to date on everything, advising us with our requests, and making the grounds immaculate, delicious nibbles, drinks ever-flowing, and the fabulous food on the actual day just amazing. They went above and far, far beyond we ever would have thought any company or business would care to do to accommodate us and our friends and families. And they are really lovely people, too. Rina is just a gem. If any one is thinking of choosing a venue for their special day, we really do recommend you go with Markovina as we doubt you would find any venue that would better them and will make your day just that more special. – Larisa & Justin - 4 January 2014
