It was really good. Easy set up. It was more DIY than we expected but the venue barely needed decorations anyway as it looks so impressive. The food was really great. The staff were very polite and helpful. Even security were very nice.

Hi John-Paul, Thank you for your wonderful review. We do pride ourselves on our catering. Our chef is very passionate about using local, in season ingredients, to create fresh, imaginative meals. Our gold package includes napkins and linen of your colour choice, as well as an option of lamp or faux candle center piece. Unfortunately more large scale decor does have to be hired in (such as floral arches) as the aquarium sadly doesn't have the storage space. We do have a fantastic events team who are all incredibly experienced in working five star events and are committed to going above and beyond for our lovely guests. I will be sure to pass on your compliments. Congratulations again! Best Fishes, Grace SEA LIFE Melbourne

We booked a year in advance and we had one wedding coordinator. We then had Amelia and she was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable. The venue was very beautiful. We felt like a prince and princess we were very well looked after. Everything was well looked after and the wine was non stop.

The location and atmosphere was fantastic, however, the food needs to be a little more substantial.
