There are lots of things that must be taken cared of prior to the wedding. Usually, no matter how long the period of preparation is, the brides and grooms-to-be still experience a lot of pre-wedding stress.

Between money, time, and general expectations, most engaged couples I know are ready to pull out their hair at one point or another. Wedding stress can come from finding and booking your wedding vendors, bickering friends, worrying about other people’s opinions, your parents and even your partner.

You got to rise above wedding planning stress.

Here are some tips that you can follow for a stress-free wedding:

  1. Set realistic goals. It will be essential to make sure that plans will be based on important factors like the time left for planning as well as the budget allotted for the wedding. Creating your dream wedding may also have some limitations and you have to know what these are to avoid arguments and disappointments.
  2. Consult each other every time a decision must be made. Keep in mind that every detail of the ceremony and wedding reception should involve you and your soon-to-be spouse so it will be important to keep one informed of your plans and ask approval for the ideas that you have in mind.
  3. Seek help and ask lots of questions. When you book your wedding reception at Historic Eschol Park House, you are lucky to have many of years of wedding experience there to guide you. The Masina Family has been running weddings at Historic Eschol Park House for over 21 years.

Brides and grooms-to be can enjoy a stress-free wedding. Overcome pre-wedding blues by considering the points above and also by taking time to relax and chill out.

Eschol Park House remains to be the most sought after reception venues in Sydney not only because of its beauty and elegance but mainly because of the overwhelming and happy experiences that were created for the couples who have chosen to tie-the-knot in this heritage-listed mansion.

It is our pleasure to share some of the feedbacks that we received from the couples who believe that Eschol Park House played an important role in making their weddings exceptional.

 “Dear John and Team

We couldn’t miss this opportunity to thank you most sincerely for making our daughter’s dream wedding a reality. We were fortunate that we were able to have a beautiful garden ceremony in the grounds of Eschol Park House at 9th October 2011.

From the first point of contact with our daughter Kristen and her now husband Daniel, right through to the very end of the reception, every detail of the wedding was handled with complete professionalism. We had absolute confidence that this wedding was going to be fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone and everything was catered for.

From the moment our guests arrived they were graciously welcomed by an abundance of well spoken and well dressed staff. We have had many calls from our guests commenting on how well looked after they were, and the beverages and starters just kept coming. The Master of Ceremonies, Max, kept everything in order and the night running smoothly and on time.

The food presentation, quantity and flavour was outstanding. Many of our guests would like to send their compliments to the chef. Again, with some gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian guests, this was happily and satisfactorily catered for. Thank you! After having a “taste test” prior to the wedding, we had no doubt that the meals were going to be delicious!

The ambience in the room was very appropriate. The colours, centrepieces and chair covers helped to create the effect we had envisioned, and the fireplaces helped to add that little bit extra.

We have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in singing the praises of Eschol Park House to anyone who will listen. We would highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone and we are so pleased with the outcome, which was an absolutely beautiful and enjoyable wedding day. Congratulations to you and your great team on providing top service and a great wedding reception venue. You are all a credit to the Macarthur region.

We hope to one day have the opportunity to return as guests so that we may indulge once more!

Thanks Again,



      “Dear John,

We just wanted to drop a note in relation to the wedding of Trent and Hayley at your beautiful wedding venue, Eschol Park House, last Sunday.

May I say the day was perfect! From the moment we arrived we were treated with friendliness, courtesy and respect. The function room was set out perfectly and the staff were absolutely amazing! The food was outstanding and the M.C. was terrific. Please let your staff know how professional and beautifully attired they were.

We have had many calls from guests saying what a fabulous time they had and what a beautiful wedding venue it was. We would be pleased to recommend Eschol Park House without hesitation.

Regards, Suzan & Jeffery”


      “Dear John and staff

We just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for the fantastic time we had at Eschol Park House celebrating Steph and Chris’ wedding on 13th August. The whole day was perfect, starting with the weather which turned out beautifully. The ceremony went without a hitch and the reception just topped off a great day.

We received so many compliments from our families and friends about the wedding venue, the food and the bar service, and I just want to pass these compliments on to you and your brilliant staff.

Thank you once again.

Kind regards, Linda and Michael”


      “Dear Eschol Park House

Thank you and your staff for an absolutely wonderful night for my daughter’s wedding. You could not have been more helpful, the night was amazing. The food was out of this world! Everyone is still saying how amazing Eschol Park House is as a wedding venue. You made my daughter and her husband so happy.

Thank you again,



      “Dear John,

Thank you so much for making our wedding day run so smoothly! I am normally such a stress head but as soon as I stepped out of the limo I felt the stress melt away. You were fantastic in every way and I can’t wait to recommend Eschol Park House to all of my friends and family.

Yours sincerely,

Barry and Jodie”
