“Fondata 1872 held the most memorable day of our lives. From the first meeting with Rebecca (Functions Manager) we felt completely at ease with her in charge of the most important day in our lives. Her warm and approachable personality made all communication so easy and stress free. Nothing was ever too hard or unachievable. In the lead up to our day Fondata was very accommodating to hold meetings whenever we felt the need to revisit the venue, to discuss different elements of our day in detail. On our big day Fondata 1872 was faultless in every way. From the grounds looking perfectly maintained, to the staff having a genuine love to attentive hospitality. The delicious food and wine (still a talking point amongst friends). Our Wedding Day at Fondata was more than we ever dreamt it could be, it was unflawed! We are looking forward to spending many anniversaries here to celebrate and remember our perfect day!’
