    Our L'Aqua wedding co-ordinator, Grace, was very supportive throughout the whole process. We were very impressed by the service and attention to detail provided. The room was also set up the way we had requested and looked beautiful.

    Fantastic venue - we had a winter Sydney wedding so we weren't sure whether there would be rain. We had our ceremony on the balcony of our reception room (Gold Room). It was beautiful. The team at L'Aqua were great and friendly. They made the day easy to plan!

    An impeccable team to work with!! Just out of this world helpful, supportive, flexible, comprehensive and such professionals. The day was running ahead of time and the whole team came together to pull everything forward to keep it moving smoothly. It was j ust so excellent. We were in the hands of excellent event managers. If I was to have my wedding again I would 100% do it through L’Aqua! Emma was SO helpful and friendly! She had answers to everything, and anything she wasn’t sure of she researched and got back to us in no time at all! She made everything happen and was so accommodating to our changing plans and I couldn’t thank her enough for having everything so well planned and ready to go on the day. It saved us a lot of stress having to worry about any ceremony or reception details. She was a total angel!

    They offered us a really good package which was all inclusive. We got a lot of things included so we didn't have too much to think about. It was very organised. They included things like the DJ, cake as well as an overnight stay at the Highett!

    Absolutely stunning

    1 Jan 2019

    Venue was perfect, feel in love as soon as we saw the room. Staff were fantastic on the night although wedding planner was a handful.

    2 Nov 2018

    We loved our venue. It was the right size and fit for us. Being on the waterfront with a balcony really created a beautiful spring time wedding vibe. The food was amazing and the venue was very easy to liaise with. The only thing I can fault is that towards then end of the night people were waiting a little too long for drinks to be served. Other than that we were extremely happy!

    14 Oct 2018

    They were really good! We didn't have to worry about anything, they made it a really stress-free experience.

    7 Sep 2018

    Great location with spectacular view of Sydney City. Perfect size for 100 guests including a full dance floors. Balcony facility fantastic for viewing the fireworks. Food was delicious and service was 5 stars. Dealing with L'aqua staff was super easy and helped out wherever possible. Highly recommend them.
