Best party ever! All the staff are very aware of you and your guests, and I don't think I had an empty glass or hunger pang all night. They helped ensure the whole reception ran smoothly, and every single one of my guests, without exception, commented on the service and feel of the day. I wish it was mandatory to relive the experience each year! Jenny, Jeremy, Tanya and the entire team are incredible people, who go above and beyond to make you feel happy, comfortable and relaxed on your big day. Stunning venue, rain or sunshine. I was worried we were going to miss out of our ideal setting because if bad weather, but having our ceremony moved to the balcony just made the views that much more incredible. Ocean scenes in all pictures, and just an absolute stunning location. If you want a relaxed setting they can do it, if you want formal they can. Our ceremony was exactly what we wanted without us even knowing Where you start. Horizons blew us away with their professionalism mixed with fun. From our first meeting we felt relaxed and knew that or venue had everything under control. They know exactly what they're doing and coordinated everything for us to make sure the planning and day went super smooth. I cannot praise them enough!

We are both from Ireland, I was planning my wedding over here very alone but not with Horizons Beachfront Venue they helped me in every way and planned everything the way I wanted. I gave them my ideas and they brought them to light. I HIGHLY recommend the Horizons Beachfront Venue - Our guests could not stop complimenting their service, their food, their staff, their attitude! Our parents came from Ireland and they didn’t know what to expect - THEY are going back to Ireland talking about this venue! It will be the talk of Ireland! The FOOD was out of this world, again our guests didn’t know what to expect when it wasn’t a sit-down meal - I heard our family and guests RAVE about how AMAZING the food was and the drink was always topped up never an empty glass and the girls loved the Bellinis. Everything was OUT OF THIS WORLD - Incredible! The DECOR was out of this world, the staff at Horizons went out of their way to put my ideas together! It was AMAZING! My parents haven’t stopped talking about our wedding venue, coming from Ireland they didn’t know what to expect. Thank you so much to all the staff and especially Jenna, Jenny & Tania

Is a one hour time gap between ceremony and canapes ok?

We are looking to have our ceremony at 3pm, and then canapes to start at 5pm, this means there will be a one hour gap from 4pm-5pm. Looking to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue. Is it acceptable? To entertain guests, there will be a photobooth along with a few platters of snacks, and a bar tab on soft drinks and coffee/tea. Alcohol will be available at 5pm once canapes start. Or if they prefer, they can explore the venue gardens and take some photos.

Horizons Wedding Venue

Hi Anna 

We ost both ceremonies and receptions at our venue and we have ceremonys at 3pm, this usually lasts 30 mins and then there are group photos that happen.  Once this has taken place the guests then make their way upstairs and the reception begins, guests are taken care of with canapes and drinks and then the bride and groom are announced in 1 hour later at they have had their photos taken.

This works really well as guests are peckish and need to freshen up and mingle.

Hope this helpes

Thanks

Do many Sydney venues allow dogs, or should I get married in a park?

I just want my dog to be in my photos, not at the reception

Horizons Wedding Venue

Hi 

Thanks for your question.

Some venues are flexible on dogs - we have an approach of each wedding is different, so always ask the question.

Thanks

How many guests constitutes a small wedding?

We are thinking about 55 :)

Horizons Wedding Venue

Hi 

Thanks for your question, some venues will have a minimum number of guests, and this is so you have enough guests to fill the room to create the right atmostphere for the size of the room.  We have a minimum of 80 guests so as you can comfortably fill the room.

Many thanks
