Dockside was amazing. We had our wedding at darling harbour. It was truly an amazing experience and our wedding coordinator was simply phenomenal. Our wedding felt special and they looked after us really well.

They did great work and communication throughout the process. The food was great! All the guests loved the venue and it has nice views!

Dockside was a fantastic venue on the day and in the lead up. We had our ceremony in the L'Aqua Gold room and the reception in the Dockside Darling room and the day just went so smoothly! The staff on the day were lovely and well organised, making us feel at ease the whole time and that we didn't need to worry about anything. The food at the reception was beautiful, lots of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed it and also commented on how much fun they had on the night. During the lead up, we dealt with Grace who was so helpful and was happy to deal with any queries quickly. If she ever needed anything from us she would follow up with plenty of notice - I felt like we were in good hands, and it definitely showed on the day thanks to her coordination. Our guests and ourselves had the best wedding day and we are so happy we chose Dockside to host our ceremony and reception. I've recommended Dockside to my friends and family!

Everything was planned really well, everyone was really nice and the place itself had a really nice view as well. Food tasted really good too, and the guests enjoyed it. They have packages to choose, and quite a few things were included which was easy!

They were really good and gave us our own events coordinator who really helped out to liaise with a lot of our suppliers. Everything was made so clear and easy with them.

We had our reception at dockside group cockle bay wharf and it was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed our day and the staff were incredible - all the little touches made such a different (including the venue manager reminding us to eat) - the whole process from start to finish was PERFECT!

Absolutely amazing! Great location, great food, wonderful staff and our wedding coordinator was absolutely amazing and helped out so much. Stress was relived from their assistance with things they are not required to assist with. Absolutely love them!!

Could not have asked for a better venue! The pricing was reasonable, the package was great. Staff were all very considerate. Food was great!

21 Oct 2017

We held both our ceremony and reception at Dockside. Our ceremony was in L'Aqua and was absolutely perfect! Such a stunning view and it made it convenient for everyone to stay at the same location. Our reception was held downstairs at Dockside which was also stunning. We had a few minor hiccups with the wrong food being given to people with dietary requirements but overall they were great! The packages were very well priced and they made the planning a very smooth and easy process. Would highly recommend!
