We got married at the Royal Melboune Yacht Squadron Habour Room. The location and venue were beautiful! The Company who runs the weddings there (Food and Desire) were difficult to deal with throughout the planning process. But it all worked out well on the day and we ended up having a very positive experience.
Could not rate the people at Food and Desire enough. Our entire experience with them was effortless and they helped us in every way they could. From helping set up decor, to communicating with our MCs and vendors to even finding a stand-in easel after ours broke before the ceremony the team at the Harbour Room could not have been more helpful.
We have had raving reviews from our guests about how fantastic the food was, and it's true - by far the best food experience we have had at a wedding. Food and Desire - Thank You!!
The venue was a perfect size and layout for our event of around 80 guests.
Being mid winter we chose an indoor ceremony which worked well. The staff did an amazing job turning the ceremony area back into a dancefloor within 15-20 minutes of the ceremony wrapping up.
We paid for a 4 choice menu which complicated the catering. The Food and Desire team did a fabulous job - our guests are still commenting positively on the quality of the food and service.
We struggled early in the planning stages to understand what was part of the package versus not part of the package, and to understand the menu options. Our co-ordinator, Danielle, worked hard to get agreement and we were really pleased with the final result.
We were not aware there was going to be a Yacht club event at the same time as the ceremony. A number of club members were walking back and forward in front of the guests (behind the bride and groom) during the ceremony and there was a bit of noise. It was a minor distraction - especially given our wedding was a relaxed celebration of an older, long established couple. However, for some couples this may be a bigger deal.
Food & Desire were spectacular.
Their communication was great in the lead up to the wedding. We had at least 3 meetings prior, to ensure that every detail was organised for the day.
On the wedding day itself however, they blew me away. The food was incredible, the service - impeccable. Most of our guests commented on how on the ball the staff were with the service and how great the food was.
All the staff were also super friendly on the night, which just added to the positive vibe of our wedding.
I would highly recommend the Harbour Room for a well-organised, fun and delicious wedding.
Could not of asked for a better place to have our wedding! Sophie, Rebecca and Adam were all phenomenal! Highly recommend this company! The day was so well run, guests commented on how amazing the food was!
