We really appreciated the advice, support and correspondence along the way, the warm welcome we received on the night, the extremely attentive service from all staff and the most amazing food!!! We had a really fun, special and memorable night. We didn't have to worry about anything. Our guests are still talking about what a great venue it was, how great the service was and how it was the best food they have had at a wedding! We would recommend the venue and food&desire catering to anyone!

The Harbour Room by Food and Desire was absolutely amazing and I would recommend this venue to any bride who is looking for great views, an amazing space that speaks for itself and helpful staff to make your dream wedding a reality.

Aerial was really good, good upkeep of their facilities, organised, catered for dietaries really well. You could tell a lot about a place by how they keep their bathrooms, and I looked there and it was so clean, and smelt great. For the price we paid, the venue was top notch. Sophie and Nicole who we dealt with were very patient, knowledgeable, helpful and weren't overly pushy in anything at all which we liked.

They were really good, we moved through a couple of different people who were managing us, and some of the communication took a bit longer however overall it was really good. The venue was really nice, and we were happy to spend a little extra for it.

Exceeded every expectation! Food & Desire made our wedding day so wonderful at their venue Aerial. The process from start to finish was easy, working with their event coordinators and venue managers. The organisation and service of all the staff is high quality, they were so accommodating and enthusiastic for our special day. The food was fabulous, our guests raved about the taste and freshness, plus we had a special ice cream bar that Food & Desire willingly organised for us, that our guests loved! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. Highly recommend Food & Desire at Aerial, their service and quality of catering is beyond wonderful.

Aerial in Southwharf was amazing especially on the night. Their service was great, and we got a package deal with the accommodation on the night of the wedding as well.
