“We cannot thank the team at Showtime Events Group and Aerial enough for creating our dream wedding! The Showtime team were incredible to work with, extremely responsive, and always willing to help and go above and beyond to meet our requests. We cannot recommend Showtime Events Group more and thank them so much for making our special day possible. Everyone we worked with across Showtime was amazing to deal with. A massive thank you to Rachel for picking up our wedding so late and helping with every aspect in such a short time. No request was too big. A huge thank you to Lilianna as well. Lilianna was amazing on the night and was always asking if we needed anything or there was anything she could do for us. It was honestly amazing having Lilianna there - she is outstanding and we cannot thank her enough!” — Andrea + Akash

Aerial as a venue was stunning and everything that my husband and I wanted. From the moment I enquired, I was met with the most warmth by all of the team and when we toured Aerial we knew it was for us. Ella was our wedding producer and we cannot speak more highly of her! She met with us throughout our planning and was always on hand to answer questions or fine tune the details. She showed us what was possible, listened to us, and created genuinely the most wonderful day that was truly 'us'. We are so grateful to her and the team for everything! The food and drinks were incredible and all our family and friends have been talking about it ever since! So pleased with all of the options we had to choose from!

The team at Aerial were amazing and we couldn’t recommend this venue more! They went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was absolutely perfect and no request was too big! Ella who was our wedding producer was phenomenal, she would answer all my questions and handled everything for me with our vendors which helped take the stress off! The staff on the night were amazing and we had so many people compliment the food, staff and the overall night! Thanks to Aerial for creating our dream day, wish we could relive it over and over!
