Hi Graham and Haylee,
I hope you are both well.
Nick and I have just returned from our amazing honeymoon in Fiji and wanted to take the time to send you a huge, huge thank you for all your work in making our wedding a very special and memorable day.
From the moment we met you Graham, we knew SkyHigh was ‘the one.’ The venue truly sells itself, but you were the icing on the cake J
I must admit we had our doubts, with the venue being a couple of hours away from home, but all those doubts disappeared as we knew we were in good hands and that everything would come together to create our dream day.
We really appreciate how organised you guys were with every single aspect-from the timeline, to the set up, to liaising with our suppliers etc. Your passion and excitement added to the overall atmosphere- it was clear that you guys really love the work that you do!
Graham, thank you for taking the time to mingle with some of our guests- they appreciated your outgoing personality, humour and warm welcome.
Thank you also for the time taken by staff to check on Dad- who always seems to become unwell at the worst times!!
Also, I did pop my head into the kitchen on the night to say thanks but could you again please pass on a huge thank you to the kitchen staff for the amazing food on the evening. Everything was perfect! Do you think they could come and cook for us at home? ;-)
To the wait and bar staff- thank you for the impeccable service and attention to detail. The little extra details- such as our napkins being re-rolled when we got up, did not go unnoticed and added such a special and professional touch.
So many of our guests have told us that it’s the best wedding they have ever been to- a true testament to the amazing passion and effort that the SkyHigh team put into the day.
We only have one complaint- we would like to go back and do it all as guests to truly take it all in!
We will definitely be back for visits and to say hello.
Keep doing the amazing work that you do.
Again, a huge thank you and hugs from the new

Rick and I honestly could not thank you enough for all that you did to make our wedding day run so smoothly and absolutely perfectly!! From initially booking the date through to the very end you made sure everything was perfect and the process was nothing less then a smooth one! Skyhigh should definitely count there blessings that they have you to run there events because its seems like something you were born to do- you do it so well!
Everyone at the wedding had nothing but great comments to say about everything from the set up, to the food, structure and just simply how well all suppliers worked so well together! The team was very friendly and did a tremendous job- you should be very proud of your staff!
Your hard work and dedication on the night of the event and in lead up definitely shows when its eventually time for the event to take place!!
I would strongly recommend this venue to all my family and friends for any event!!
We will have to pop in and say hi next time we are up on the mountain!!
I would love for your management to hear this feedback so please so pass it on or let me know where i can send it through.
Thank you once again, you are an absolute superstar!!

We had the most amazing time at our wedding on Monday. We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work in the whole process. We have had many phone calls from our guests to tell us that it was the best wedding they've been to.. So much of that is from your fantastic staff and your excellent organisation in running a flawless wedding.. We are still on a high and I hope it doesn't go away lol

To Graham, Haylee and the whole SkyHigh team!
Wow! What a day and night. I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for what was the most amazing day/night! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and we thank you all!
Graham, thank you for being so welcoming, warm, working hard to make it perfect and for giving the best hugs ever! We love you!
From start to finish. Was perfect! Everybody loved the venue, and jaws apparently dropped and gasps of air from people when the curtains were drawn to enter the reception when the view was seen! Just amazing.

Hi Beau and Graham,
"I just wanted to say thank-you so very much for making our wedding day so perfect. From the moment we decided to have our wedding at SkyHigh everything ran so smoothly, no request was to big or to small, even answering my million questions per day was never to much trouble. You really went above and beyond our exceptions and your service was flawless. Our ceremony set up was exquisite, I felt like a princess, and our reception setup was absolutely stunning with the most magnificent food and breathtaking views, our guests thought our wedding was magical. It was so perfect it makes me want to cry, we are so happy we chose SkyHigh and had such amazing people to plan with....it was a true pleasure."
Zoe and Daniel McEwan xo - Wednesday, 30 March 2016
Right from the very first communication with SkyHigh they were very approachable and accommodating to our requirements. Graham and team were more then willing to work with us to make our day the perfect fit.
Everyone was more than happy to answer our hundred questions and weekly emails with no hesitations. We were provided with regular updates when changes were occurring to ensure we were happy with their service and kept in the loop.
Knowing we had such a great team supporting our wedding day made myself and new husband feel relaxed, at ease and completely able to fully enjoy our day.
All the staff were very friendly and professional throughout our whole function.
We can not rate SkyHigh enough and would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff involved in the planning & the day/night of our wedding.
Special thank you to Graham!! You are truly amazing and we will miss seeing your name pop up on our phones. Thank you for making our wedding day the most spectacular event of our lives.

"Graham and the Sky High Team are AWESOME!!!! The service they provide made our wedding flow from start to finish with ease. Nothing was a drama and we felt the whole experience was enjoyable. The venue is amazing and the value for money even better. Thank you doesn't seem anywhere near enough to describe these wonderful people."
Mick and I would like to say a big thankyou for all your help with putting together our wedding on Saturday. We both had an amazing time and were really happy with how it all went.
The feedback from our guests has all been positive, including special mention of how great all the staff were on the night.
The room looked great and luckily for us the weather and view was perfect.
Thanks for being so enthusiastic and helping to prod us when we needed it : )
"Hi Graham, we just wanted to take the opportunity to express our gratitude to yourself and the staff that helped on Saturday at Rebecca and Mark’s wedding. The venue turned out exactly as we had hoped, the entire evening ran smoothly and the staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Many of our guests commented on the excellent service and particularly how much they liked all the dishes we had, as we did also, so please pass this feedback on to your chef, the food was outstanding. We thank you for a very enjoyable experience with having our wedding at your venue and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we can. Many thanks Pam and Louie Catena"
"Sorry this is so delayed but Rob and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for our amazing wedding reception you guys held on Feb 14th 2015. It was absolutely perfect and we seriously wouldn't have changed one thing. All our guests are still coming up to us saying how wonderful it was. You did such a fantastic job we can't thank you enough. Thank you so much once again Graham for everything you did for our special day.
Hannah and Rob Almeida :)"
"Everything from the moment we arrived to the moment we left as husband and wife was AMAZING! I could not fault anything about our wedding day and I am so grateful for all of the support we have received from SkyHigh. Graham, you are amazing and you made our experience all the more special and enriched, not only on the day but also in the lead up. I cannot thank you enough for making the day even more spectacular than we could have imagined. So many people have been commenting to our family that it was the best wedding that they ever attended. We will most certainly be in touch and look forward to celebrating many anniversaries at SkyHigh Mount Dandenong." Ariana Ibrichevich
"Dear Mr Graham Brew (functions manager),
We would like to thank you and your staff for the wonderful reception you and your staff put on for our daughter's wedding on Saturday 14/3/15. Not only did your staff attend to everyone efficiently and professionally but the meals were of an excellent standard. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to the kitchen staff and the wait staff. The smallest thing was not too much trouble for the wait staff, even though we had two disabled elderly grandmothers there on the night. They are a credit to you. With so much to think of on the wedding day, to leave the reception in your staff's capable hands was a relief to this Father of the Bride!!
Thanks again, Bill and Maike Pritchard."
Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for all the hard work you put into our day!! I absolutely could not have dreamt of a more perfect day. The secret garden and function centre looked amazing, the food was delicious and all the staff so attentive and wonderful!
Sky high was absolutely the perfect venue and we can't thank you enough! You are fabulous!!" Charlee McElligott
"Graham I don't know how to put into words my gratitude for everything you did for us.
The wedding was everything I wanted. You made sure the day ran so smoothly.
Just having you there was a comfort, I knew it would all go according to plan.
Everything was just perfect.
From the room set up to the table arrangements, to the way that everyone on the table was served at exactly the same time.
You knew who was vegetarian, and then accommodated the 'surprise' vegetarians :)
It was so professional. I have never been to wedding like it, and it was mine!!!"
"Hi Graham and Sky High Team !!!
Just a quick thankyou for a great event. There were many comments from guests on how beautiful the venue was. The picturesque garden ceremony set the tone for the rest of day which went flawlessly from start to end.
That day was up there as one of the three best days of my life and Raeleen was involved in each of these days:
My smart and beautiful daughter Ashlee being born
My beautiful green eyed son with the golden heart being born
My wedding day to my partner of 35 years that brought into the world the two bundles of joy
Thank you again from both of us for sharing the moment with us and putting together the perfect event !!!
Raeleen and Frank Krivaci !!!"
"Dear Graham and Chris,
We want to thank you for all your help in the organisation of Laura and Daniels wedding celebration last Friday. Unfortunately on the day the weather was against them having the ceremony outside but the speed with which ' Plan B ' was put into place was most impressive and very much appreciated. As a second option,an inside ceremony with that amazing view as a backdrop is pretty special!
Please pass along our thanks to all your very friendly and helpful staff who were there on the night. They all did a fantastic job! Also to your kitchen staff-the food was delicious and enjoyed by all.
Once again thank you so much for helping to make Laura and Daniels day everything they were hoping for. We would certainly recommend Skyhigh as a venue for a wedding or other event to anyone looking for a special place to celebrate.
Helen and Keith Fordham"
"Hi Graham and Chris!
It's been over a month since my wonderful wedding day - time has flown! I'm sorry I haven't sent this email earlier - what with the honeymoon, getting back to work and moving house we've been very busy!
I'd just really like to say on behalf of Jeremy and myself how thankful we are for everyone at Sky High and the effort that was put into making our big day so fabulous. So many of our guests have told us how much they loved the venue and the whole day - some have even said it was the best wedding they've been to!
I was so relaxed and stress-free in the lead up to the day, and I think that was partly because I knew I could rely on you guys to have everything under control, which you most certainly did. The ceremony was set up beautifully and it was so thoughtful on a hot day to set up the cold water and glasses for our guests.
The reception was amazing, the food was delicious, everything ran perfectly and we just had the most perfect day. The photos look beautiful too - so I'll be sure to send some your way when they are ready!
Laura and Jeremy"
Thank you so much for all your help! You were just wonderful to work with & very efficient. We were also very impressed with how you decorated the room - the blue sashes looked wonderful & the candles around the bridal table were amazing!
Many people commented to me how exceptional your staff were :-) We all gave them a round of applause at the end of the night as they were just so good.
We will certainly recommend you to everyone for a wedding function :-)"
"Hi Graham, Chris and sky high function staff,
Just wanted to pass on our thanks on behalf of the bridal party and families of the bride and groom for helping to make Rachel and Toby's special day amazing. Not even the awful weather could dampen Rachel's excitement once we stepped out of the limo and I believe Graham's enthusiasm played a big part in that.
Thank you also for allowing and assisting me with my maid of honour 'speech', it was very well received.
All in all, the night was completely fabulous, the food delicious and superbly presented and the staff warm and friendly. It truly was an unforgettable night.
Thank you for everything,
Just wanted to touch base and let you know that last night was absolutely beautiful!
Darren got the surprise of his life.
Your layout was fabulous, the room never felt sparse.
The staff on were excellent!! Please pass on an enormous thank you to Megan who ensured our night ran very smoothly. She was just gorgeous, and many guests commented on how wonderful, friendly and helpful she was.
I can't thank you enough for all your efforts and for allowing us the use of your function room. As predicted the weather stayed beautiful all night ensuring the outlook was stunning!
Thanks again so very much,
