Stunning venue. Great food. Such a perfect evening. Along with fantastic drink package options they also allow you to bring up to 3 different types of alcohol (we brought champagne, vodka and rum).

We had the best day. It was absolutely magnificent with the backdrop of Sydney Harbour. We did not have to worry about anything, everything was taken care of. The food was amazing.

The venue is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day. However, there were a few minor inconveniences. There was a mistake happend while the food was been served on the day, but they quickly came up with a solution and appologised to our guest on the spot. Other inconveniences were details that didn't carried out on the day, even though it was all stated in our email conversations prior the event and confirmed by the event coordinator.
