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.

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 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.

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!

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!

Absolutely amazing! Great location, great food, wonderful staff and our wedding coordinator was absolutely amazing and helped out so much. Stress was relived from their assistance with things they are not required to assist with. Absolutely love them!!

We held both our ceremony and reception at Dockside. Our ceremony was in L'Aqua and was absolutely perfect! Such a stunning view and it made it convenient for everyone to stay at the same location. Our reception was held downstairs at Dockside which was also stunning. We had a few minor hiccups with the wrong food being given to people with dietary requirements but overall they were great! The packages were very well priced and they made the planning a very smooth and easy process. Would highly recommend!

The staff at Dockside were so organised and accommodating. They made the process easier than I expected. The package had a few inclusions that were fantastic! The DJ, getaway car, night at a hotel, fairylight canopy and small cake (upgradable) were included and saved us the hassle of finding one.

We had our reception at Dockside's Darling Rooms at Darling Harbour. Their deal was unbeatable considering the amount of inclusions that were part of the package. Our coordinators Tjinta and Jessica were easy to deal with during the preparation and Emin made sure the night ran smoothly. Thank You Dockside!

At our Dockside reception the air conditioning did not work and Dockside only provided us with one fan for our two rooms. The heat was so extreme guests left the reception sick, didn't eat the food and we had to finish the reception early. Do not have your reception here!

We had our reception at Wolfies at The Rocks. Perfect venue for a smaller wedding. The food was so lovely, staff attentive and the venue stunning.

The venue was fantastic and the staff went above and beyond with their service! The only negative is that their lighting and AV projectors are all outsourced so it added to the cost quite significantly. We decided not to go ahead with dance floor lights due to the extra cost and the room was very lit up for the whole reception (it didn't create the atmosphere for the dance floor but people still danced anyway).

Thanks Dockside - L' Aqua for the professionalism that all your staff had from the planning right up to the day of our wedding. All our guests commented that they had the best food they ever had at the wedding. The function went so well organised & everyone had a great time. The venue was truly beautiful & the atmosphere was so warm. We thank you very much with esp mention to Daniel who was running the show. Also Tjinta thank you so much for all your help in organising & made sure our wedding went well without a hitch!

Sally, Tjinta & the team at Dockside was incredible. People keep raving about the food and telling us that it was the best wedding they had been too. We couldn't be happier. Thanks so much

Was happy with their service up until the wedding day. They completely stuffed up the seating arrangements, had a leaking toilet in the bathroom which was absolutely gross and embarrassing and their DJ was hopeless. The food, balcony, staff and value for money was great though.
