This venue was the best - they were super organised and communicative the whole time so that the wedding itself went through without any glitch. At all times, we were impressed by the level of detail added to our wedding and the care and attention of the staff towards it. We had the best night here for our wedding - the service, food, drinks and dancing were all 10/10.

We had our reception at dockside group cockle bay wharf and it was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed our day and the staff were incredible - all the little touches made such a different (including the venue manager reminding us to eat) - the whole process from start to finish was PERFECT!

Dockside was a fantastic venue on the day and in the lead up. We had our ceremony in the L'Aqua Gold room and the reception in the Dockside Darling room and the day just went so smoothly! The staff on the day were lovely and well organised, making us feel at ease the whole time and that we didn't need to worry about anything. The food at the reception was beautiful, lots of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed it and also commented on how much fun they had on the night. During the lead up, we dealt with Grace who was so helpful and was happy to deal with any queries quickly. If she ever needed anything from us she would follow up with plenty of notice - I felt like we were in good hands, and it definitely showed on the day thanks to her coordination. Our guests and ourselves had the best wedding day and we are so happy we chose Dockside to host our ceremony and reception. I've recommended Dockside to my friends and family!

We had our wedding reception at Dockside Darling rooms and it was amazing from the start to the end. Everything was organised and on the day it was perfect as the guests enjoyed the food/drinks and atmosphere. The staff on the day were lovely and well organised, making us feel at ease the whole time and that we didn't need to worry about anything.

Ben and I got married at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf on the 28/10/2023 and it was a truly magical experience. We were recommended this venue by our friends and we couldn’t be more grateful to the staff of Dockside for their incredible service, ensuring all the formalities went ahead as planned and giving us along with our guests a truly unforgettable night. Irene and the team have been so kind and welcoming from the moment we first met them and they worked so hard to put together such a wonderful event. We couldn’t be happier, I truly recommend this venue to anyone getting married! 😍👌
