Julie and the team at the Southport Yacht Club were amazing. Nothing was an issue, they catered to our queries. The venue looked amazing, I could not have asked for a better day. Thank you Kathy Thornton

One word can sum up our experience with Julie and SYC: Outstanding! Everything was exactly the way we wanted it. The food was excellent and planning with them was so easy. I have looked at pretty much all venues on the GC and the SYC definitely had so much more to offer than everyone else. And that view was just a cherry on top! Thank you so much.

Really easy organise, we met once and then communicated via email. The event coordinator took care of decorations and provided us with a DJ to get in touch with. The food and service was beyond amazing.

Great value package and beautiful venue. Our venue co-ordinator Lanii was brilliant. I couldn't have asked much more from her. She really went above and beyond on the day and a staff member even got my husband a fresh pair of socks from his own apartment when his got soaked at the beach. The food was just excellent and the day went so smoothly. We couldn't have had a better day.

Everythign from the room decorations and layout to food and staff were amazing. The functions manager listened to every detail and incorporated everything in the venue. The room looked amazing and was set-off by the breathtaking back drop of the marina. The food was raved about by all of the guests and the room decorators made the room look wonderful and classy.

There is not enough space to talk about how good Stacey and the team were at SYC. Stacey is the best wedding coordinator I've ever met, and I'm an events planner. She is so on top of her game and so proactive. I would recommend her above anyone else.
