STRAIGHT FROM THE BRIDE & GROOM'S MOUTH - Don't just take our word for it!

“We, along with our families and all of our friends had an absolutely beautiful day at Food I Am and we can't thank you enough. It's been just over two weeks since our wedding and every time we chat or catch up with anyone who was there, they say such lovely things about how stunning the venue was, how amazing the food was and, in particular, how great the service was. It was the most incredible day and this was largely thanks to your professionalism, sense of calm and the passion that your whole team put into making sure every aspect of your service was exceptional. We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to celebrate our wedding with you at Food I Am and the Riverina is so lucky to have a venue in the region that is of such a high standard. 

We are really grateful for all your help in the lead up to the day and for being so easy to communicate with and make decisions with. Our initial attraction to booking our wedding with you was because you were so relaxed about the process. You armed us with the necessary information to make a decision but also backed that with so much care and joy for us - you never put any pressure on us to book with you and you always made us feel comfortable to ask questions about the package and you spent time meeting with both of our families in order to book. The other thing we really loved was that your package and pricing was so transparent - no hidden costs here and there if you made small changes or wanted to add more time. We really wanted to give you this feedback as this is a very unique wedding package right from Sydney through to Melbourne - everywhere we looked had a base rate package which seems reasonable but then the second you want the space for longer, more food, change the wine, bring a band etc the price changed, making it very difficult to work out a budget for the day.

Once we had booked with you, you continued to look after us in such a loving and caring way. I (Kate) remember the many phone calls to Tania in the early days where I was literally crying on the phone trying to navigate the whole process of booking caterers, photographers, florists etc. Tania, you were so understanding and did everything possible to ensure that this process was easy and you never made me feel silly for being so emotional! I was so grateful for those days of discussions. And boy, are we grateful we chose Food I Am for our catering. The food was incredible and all of our guests have raved about the food and everyone went home very full! 

Nerida, thank you for the many phone calls, emails, all of your reassurance, kindness and total domination of all aspects of the day. You are incredibly gifted in so many ways and you really did make our day run perfectly. Your organisation and experience in this industry and role really shone as you managed to have a smile on your face every day in the lead up and most importantly on the day. We felt that we were in the best of hands with you, Tania and the team on the day - you were calm and in control and we didn't worry about a single thing, we were just able to have fun and live in the moment. We are so thankful to you all. 

Please pass on our gratitude to the team at Food I Am for making our day what it was. Your bar staff, amazing bar manager and wait staff were also so kind to us and looked after us so well on the day. Our friends and families have raved about the level of service they received all day so please pass our thanks on. 

We feel like we were looked after on the weather front too - it was the perfect conditions to enjoy the sanctuary that you have created up there - the lawn, the views... it is just stunning! You have really gone above and beyond”.

Lots of love,

Mick & Kate March 2019

“Honestly, we couldn’t have organised our wedding from Adelaide without your help and keeping us so organised and calm. Thank you both for everything you did for our special day!

Our sunset and venue photos are beautiful … 5 star review.

We couldn’t recommend a better venue and are so thankful we had our wedding at Nu- Lumeah”.

“Nerida, Tania and the amazing team at Nu-Lumeah, Food I Am. I can’t thank you enough, Saturday was absolutely incredible and I honestly can;t fault a thing, it was perfect!!! Steve and I had the most amazing day, and it was all because of your hard work and organization. I wish we could get married every weekend”! xxx

“Lara and I held our reception at Nu-Lumeah, Food I Am, we could not be happier with the venue and support both leading up to and on the day.

Nu-Lumeah provided a friendly event manager who met with us and organised the day, this really took the pressure off. On the day we had plenty of friendly staff onboard we were well catered for and everything was taken care of.

The venue is amazing with views of Wagga, perfect for afternoon drinks and great backdrop for the dancefloor later in the night. Nu-Lumeah at Food I Am also provided the opportunity for sunset photos at the top of the property for Lara and I which were up there with some of the best shots of the day.

Great staff, amazing venue and an all round wonderful wedding. Would recommend this to anyone considering getting married in Wagga or looking for a Country retreat for their wedding”.

“I saw that view and I knew that anything else was going to be a bonus”

_ Brooke Chapman & Nathan Summerfield

We seriously could not have asked for a better venue for our big day. Nu-Lumeah was absolutely perfect. Tania and Nerida and the beautiful staff made everything so easy. I thought weddings were supposed to be stressful! - but not at Nu-lumeah with the incredible staff on your side. The marquee, the grounds, the shipping container bar, the lighting, and THAT view were everything we could have dreamed of.

Not to mention our photos are incredible thanks to the beautiful location. We cannot thank Tania, Gav, Nerida and the team enough for making our day run so smoothly, for answering all our special requests, and putting our vision for our day into action. Our family and friends have not stopped raving about our day and it’s all thanks to Nu-lumeah!
— Sarah & Tom Dyde, November 2017
We cannot begin to express how perfect Nu-Lumeah was for our Wedding day. Every meeting we had was so enjoyable, every query we had was answered. Most amazing venue for a wedding, the view is breathtaking! Tania, Nerida and the staff are so amazing and professional, really make you feel relaxed and welcome. The day went so smoothly, everything was done exactly how we wanted it. Thank you so much.
— Ashlee & Mitch, March 2018
Wow – we couldn’t have been more happy with our special day.
After getting a tour of the property and getting to spend time with Nerida and Tania, we both instantly knew that Food I Am was the perfect location for our wedding reception! The venue has the most beautiful scenery, and the staff make you feel like you are part of the family. They are truly honoured to host your wedding day and respect each couple as individuals, instead of just another wedding couple.
The atmosphere of the entire day was all we had all hoped for and we are so appreciative of everything you did behind the scenes. All our friends and family were blown away and we have not stopped hearing from every guest what an amazing time they had.
Thank you for giving us such an unforgettable and stunning reception that was absolutely far beyond our expectation.
— Pat & Alex Seaman, November 2017

 
 

My daughter held her wedding reception at Nu-Lumeah, Food I Am in March 2017.

The anticipation among guests was high as we ascended the final hill at Nu-Lumeah towards the venue and we were all rewarded with a glorious scene: an exquisitely furnished marquee opening onto a beautiful lawn with a magnificent panorama stretching north to Wagga.

Of course the perfect day required much pre-planning by the Food I Am team, particularly Nerida, the events manager, and Tania, the owner. They provided fantastic continuous support and efficiency with all the planning and a network of contacts which ensured the food was brilliant, the bar ran smoothly, the wedding cake was delicious, the music beautiful, the flowers amazing and all the staff on the day delightful and efficient.

All this combined with the most romantic of settings made it a truly memorable day. Every single guest remarked on the fact that it was an unforgettable day and I smile to myself whenever I think of it. My daughter and her husband are still on a high! Most regrettably a perfect day had to come to an end.

I unreservedly recommend the location at Nu- Lumeah and the venue and team at Food I Am for any event you may be planning but particularly a wedding.
