FROM THE BRIDE
When my husband Brad and I were looking for a reception venue for our wedding, we made one stop.
The rustic charm and unique character of Cobbora Hall was everything we had imagined for our big day, and more. Penny and Rob were more than accommodating of our needs and requests from the moment we expressed our interest in the hall, right up to the wedding and the days following.
The wooden floor boards, corrugated iron walls and exposed timber beams overhead left little need for excessive decoration. The outdoor canteen and trendy succulent gardens wowed our guests and made for a perfect space for our cocktail hour, and later in the night, a bonfire.
With the majority of our guests travelling from Sydney for the event, to say they were blown away with the venue would be an understatement. It was simply a venue like no other they had visited before.
I was told on the night, from a friend of my mother-in-law, that our wedding was the best she had ever been to. That the character and feel good country charm of the hall was "what weddings ought to be".
For Brad and me, it will forever be the best wedding we have ever been to.
Thank you Penny and Rob for your help, and for bringing back to life the amazing Cobbora Hall.

FROM THE MOTHER OF THE BRIDE
Anna and Brad had very definite ideas of what they wanted for their wedding reception and I wanted to do everything I could to help them realise their dream. Cobbora Hall was the perfect location and the atmosphere was absolutely magical. Penny and Rob did everything possible to accommodate our every wish and all the guests said they would remember it forever.

FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER
In my work as a professional photographer creating beautiful pictures for couples all over Australia, I have never experienced a location as special as Cobbora Hall. It has an aura of romance and rustic beauty that enabled Anna and Brad to realise their dream of a perfect vintage country wedding.

FROM THE CATERER
The venue has certainly been a highlight for us this catering year. Penny and Rob have put so much attention to detail into the restoration of the hall; the lighting, old metal chairs, the old style bar outside the hall. The facilities are contemporary and the hall is the perfect canvas for any country chic event. We love it!

FROM THE INTERNATIONAL DESIGNER
Cobbora Hall reflects Penny Stevens’ acute eye for style and character, as well as her extensive background in design and event co-ordination. Her professionalism and imagination have created one of the most original, unique and memorable wedding design concepts in the country. During working visits to Australia I have observed the restoration of Cobbora Hall under Penny and Rob’s direction, and highly recommend it as a truly unforgettable vintage country wedding venue.
