First time posting in this thread, my wedding is in November. I have found so many friendly and generous wedding providers, however I have come across some horrible ones too. I have been upfront about my budget all the way and I have found people are very willing to help.
I have booked Walka Water Works for the reception and ceremony locations, its beautiful and a bargain price for renting. Im organizing my own food from a mix of companies so was perfect. I would definitely recommend contacting the Maitland City Council for options of locations as they are very friendly and helpful and all there properties are affordable.
I have booked virtually everything and will post after the wedding which providers have been the best.
However I would recommend that no one uses GMTMT http://www.gmtmt.com
for their wedding video. I booked and paid in full and then got an email saying I have had another booking for the same day so I am going to cancel. I can only assume the other couple were paying more. It was horrible, he offered no solution other than refunding the money.
Also can anyone recommend somewhere lovely to have our engagement shoot done? Im not from Newcastle so struggle with locations.
