Absolutely beautiful, 100 out of 10! Everything was so well organised and all I really had to do was turn up. Everyone made me feel so comfortable and it was just perfect for what we wanted. They went above and beyond!

They made our wedding magical. Natalie was so helpful. Natalie & her staff are just fantastic. Our guest had an amazing time & commented on how great everything was! The moment I met Natalie, she welcomed us with open arms. Natalie gave us so many ideas. I highly recommend The Waterfront Restaurant. There was never an issue. Natalie's advise was always good.

How many guests qualify as a small wedding?

Do venues usually have a minimum?

The Waterfront Restaurant

Hi...we have no minimum guests and smallest wedding has been 4 guests. Our elopement package has become very popular which includes a celebrant, decorations and a photographer.


How bad are Sunday night weddings?

I'm planning a Sunday night wedding, but am concerned about guests who may need to work the next day. How are Sunday night weddings usually run? Unfortunately a brunch/lunch wedding doesn't really work for our venue.

The Waterfront Restaurant

Sunday night weddings are quite popular. Most use to select a Sunday night wedding as it was cheaper...however today it costs the same as staff wages are increased on a Sunday.

I guess the only difference can be if your guests are local the reception may finish earlier as more guests will be working the next day. If most of your guests are from out of town it really wouldn't make a difference.
