My husband (eek) and I celebrated our wedding at moby dicks in November and where do I even begin.? The venue itself is simply breathtaking! Absolutely stunning inside with out of this world views! If I could rate the food 100/10 I would! To die for! All our guests went on that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. We had shared platters and the staff just continued to bring more and more as required! The staff & service were so accommodating! And Anna..she is just amazing! From the get go she made us feel like family! So lovely, easy to contact, always went above and beyond and did her best to make sure our day was perfect.. even despite all the headaches covid threw into it.. she made sure it was perfect regardless. If you are looking for a wedding venue, I would not go past mobys!

Our wedding was planned in a duration of 1.5 months. However, Boathouse Group was very responsive in addressing all our queries, doing multiple venue reccee sessions and with their support in the lead up to our big day. As the weather lords decided to shower all their love on our wedding day the staff ensured they are quick address the vagaries of monsoon. They received all our guests at the entry with umbrellas and ensure the groom and bride have no raindrop marks on their attire as they make their entry amongst the guests. The outer deck arrangements were shifted inside in a matter of 15mins. I can only say the staff was quick, supportive in offering all their services and easy to coordinate with. The cake and food were amazing so much so all our guests left with wonderful feedback on the entire event.

All we can say is WOW. The service that Kassandra gave was absolutely amazing and could not fault a thing! From start to finish Kassandra did everything she could to cater to our expectations. She made it a really seamless process and we could not be any happier. It is pretty hard to beat a venue like this, not only the location but the amazing service of all staff involved and the styling of our ceremony. Truly a 5 star venue.
