In the lead up to our wedding, the events team from Mist @Olinda had fantastic attention to detail.
Acting more as an unofficial wedding planner rather than the function manager, they gave us ideas and advice for our wedding day and reception which was totally invaluable. He checked in with us on several occasions in the lead-up to the wedding prompting us to arrange or finalise certain things to be sure that we were not stressed in the final weeks of our preparations. They had fantastic insight into how to run the reception with an order for speeches and dinner service which made our reception run smoothly and maximise our time to enjoy the band and meet and greet people.
The menu tastings which we took part in at Sky High was a fantastic night where we got to have a taste of some of the menu items with our families and make some decisions on what would be served at our wedding. It was also a great opportunity to talk to another couple who were getting married just prior to us at the same venue and share our ideas and pointers for our respective receptions.
The Mist@Olinda staff were fantastic in the week leading up to the wedding finalising the numbers, seating plans and arranging for different items to be set-up and dropped off and they were always very responsive to questions or late changes.
The renovations to the function room including the decking on the outside overlooking the gardens are absolutely magnificent and place Mist@Olinda at the top of the table as one of the most picturesque function venues in the Dandenong’s. The natural beauty surrounding the venue is truly captured through the windows and folding glass doors opening up onto the decking overlooking the gardens and surrounding mountain ash forest. The modern, fresh and highly versatile function space (which was pitched to us at the concept stage from Graham prior to the renovations) was delivered beyond our expectations and really blew us away.
We were one of the first receptions to be held in the renovated function room and the level of service from the bar and staff appeared as if they had been working the updated function room for years. The venue opened a cash bar for us prior to the reception on the balcony of the reception venue, transitioning our guests from the ceremony in the gardens, to the balcony and into the reception at 6pm. The team at Mist@Olinda excelled themselves looking after us on our wedding day, our guests commented on how quick the service was from the kitchen and how responsive the bar staff was.
We cannot recommend Mist@Olinda and Graham highly enough for consideration for your next function or Wedding. They were the biggest part in making what we considered to be the “Perfect Wedding Day”, a sentiment which has been echoed in the responses from our guests, the band and our photographer on the day.

Ian and I want to say a huge thank you for all the work you put into our wedding reception a month ago. We had wonderful time and felt very relaxed and taken care of. Lots of guests commented on how much they enjoyed the food and excellent service, and venue looked so beautiful! We're now both back from our honeymoon and unfortunately having to settle back into work and normal life!

To whom it may concern
My husband and I had the pleasure of attending a wedding last Sunday at
We travelled from Townsville, North Queensland, for the event. We had a
wonderful time and were both so impressed by the catering and level of
service we received. All the staff were so helpful and pleasant during the
entire evening and the food was excellent from start to finish.
Harrison was the staff member who looked after our table. He was absolutely
fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for him. I can only say that he is a
marvellous asset to your team.
Well done to you all....many thanks.

Thanks so much for the fantastic job on Saturday, I had a really good time at the reception. The venue looked absolutely beautiful and your service is professional and wonderful. We had great feedbacks from our guests about how lovely the room is and how great the service was that night. One of our guests has catering background and she’s amazed by the service you provided, she said your stuff really put into the effort to make sure everyone has drinks and food at the pre-dinner drink, and she likes it when you do the table service you make sure the whole table get their food at the same time.
We want to thank all your stuff that night for making our night running so smooth, the manager on duty, Daniel, was so friendly, he’s always there to help us, please help us to say thank you to Daniel. We have a couple of friends really like the place and considering have their wedding there, so we may see you again in the future.
Our baby’s christening was perfect! It was held at ‘Mist@Olinda’ and the venue was absolutely beautiful, the views were stunning, the service was fantastic and the food was delicious!
A big thank you to Graham and his staff for making our baby’s christening a huge success.
