    “Josh and I had our wedding at Basils Farm on the 26th October 2019 and we are over the moon with how spectacular the night was and could not be happier with our choice of wedding venue. We had many, many guests comment on our how incredible the Basils Farm staff were – so accommodating, kind, thoughtful, helpful – I don’t think anyone had ever seen such amazing service!  No other venue on the Bellarine Peninsula has such a unique, stunning and peaceful location as Basils Farm that will take your guests’ breath away and offer so many options for photos. The food was just what we requested and the chef/staff were so accommodating to our guests with dietary requirements.
    A very special thank you to Talla for guiding us so smoothly through the whole process from start to finish with so much warmth, kindness, direction and fun! You are such an asset to the Basils Farm team. There is no one on the Bellarine that doesn’t know & love Basils Farm…it is becoming an icon of the area and it is the perfect wedding venue. Thank you to EVERYONE at Basils Farm. What a venue, what a team!”

    “Luke and I just wanted to say the biggest thank-you from the bottom of our hearts to you all. Our wedding was sensational and we are just so grateful we chose to have it at Basil’s! We owe a HUGE thanks to Cafe Manager, Talla, who went above and beyond without anything ever seeming difficult. You made the entire process from start to finish an absolute dream and we don’t have the words to thank you enough. The dedication and extra time you put into contacting us and sorting things out made a world of difference and meant that we were so comfortable and knew we were in good hands. You are such a beautiful, organised, warm person and are an absolute asset to the business. Our day wouldn’t have been half of what it was without you, so thank you for that. Everyone involved, from our parents to bridal party to vendors all made comment on how organised and wonderful you were. Truly, what a legend!!!…
    Alex…nothing was an issue, and you were so fun to be around, so thanks for adding to our vibe!….
    …..all of your food is divine, and we can’t wait to come back for more!…
    All of the other staff, we honestly loved you all! Hands down our favourite place on the peninsula right now, we love the whole crew and just wanted to thank you all so much! Our hearts are so full, and we can’t wait to keep coming back again and again. You all played a part in the most wonderful and memorable day of lives this far and you’re all just amazing.
    All our love, The newlyweds, Ingrid and Luke”.
