Dockside was amazing. We had our wedding at darling harbour. It was truly an amazing experience and our wedding coordinator was simply phenomenal. Our wedding felt special and they looked after us really well.

They did great work and communication throughout the process. The food was great! All the guests loved the venue and it has nice views!

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!

Sally and the team at Dockside were fantastic! Very friendly and professional. Nothing was an issue! On the day everything ran so smoothly with the help of our MC Frank. All guests enjoyed the food and venue. Thanks again Team Dockside.

Excellent venue with good communication Made the day very seamless and easy Easy drop off beforehand and all of our dropped off decorations were placed perfectly

We booked Dockside for our wedding reception. It's in a great location and needs minimal styling as it is already well kept and stylish with its grey tones throughout the venue. The day itself ran smoothly and the staff were great, especially as it was a Covid Wedding. The service was great and had many comments from our guests about the taste of the food and it's quality.

Service and food was beyond amazing. From booking our big day to doing all the last minute prep on the week of our wedding the team and our event coordinator Madeleine made everything for us so easy! Thank you Dockside group!

14 Jul 2019

Everything was planned really well, everyone was really nice and the place itself had a really nice view as well. Food tasted really good too, and the guests enjoyed it. They have packages to choose, and quite a few things were included which was easy!

25 May 2019

They were really good and gave us our own events coordinator who really helped out to liaise with a lot of our suppliers. Everything was made so clear and easy with them.

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!
