We are getting married at St John's Wilberforce with reception at the Sebel.

They Sebel don't have suites, they have a few different levels of room but they are pretty simular, I would guess you are staying in a delux spa room. Their is 1 suite but you wouldn't want to stay there, it's a 2 story, 3 bedroom house lol - we have hired it for the night before the wedding.

My dress is from Dressence in Miranda, I figured if I'm coming 6 hours to Sydney for the wedding I don't mind going across Sydney to get my dress haha

Hi sydney Gals, how are we all. After looking at St Johns church at wilberforce it looks so nice and exactly what im looking for. I just dont know if its to much out of the way. I live at st clair and reception is going to be at Villa Rosa, Leichhardt. That would mean we would need the car for longer and its already going to cost us $1450 for 3 hours.

Our reception was in the Windsor Room.

I wouldn't change a thing RC. Nothing at all. The staff, our co-ordinator, the service, food, room, pre-dinner trial, questions/answers ... all outstanding.
Our reception went off without a hitch, the feedback we've gotten is how the food was beautiful, the service was outstanding and the rooms (guests stayed in) were clean and comfortable.

What room are you having yours in?

i can get from North Sydney to Windsor (windsor is about 5minutes before Wilberfroce next suburb.) in 45 using all the tolls (m2 and m7) - there's normally not much traffic unless it's peak hour mon-fri.
where are your guests coming from? if they are coming from that area it wouldn't be too bad, but it's a long way to come if people already are travelling

I have half our guests travelling 4.5 hrs from near Taree and the other half driving 7 hours from Albury haha

JDs we are using the Ballroom (under the reception). Do you have any tips or hints?

Blacktown area isn't far from there - you should have it there then, and it sounds like that's what you really want - you'll end up regetting it if you don't. keep us posted on the out come
