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.

Beautiful venue and great food. Customer service is seamless, the event coordinator was lovely and very informative. The location of the venue was the highlight. Over looking Cockle Bay wharf, it was just beautiful

Our wedding was in the gold room, a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor space with an incredible darling harbour view. Cocktail food is delicious, great service on the wedding day too! An unforgettable memory for us!

12 Feb 2021

Had our reception in the Gold Room, such a beautiful room! Gold themed, elegantly designed, decently priced, overlooking the beautiful Darling Harbour. It was just perfect. The room was spacious enough for 83 guests, it was an intimate celebration for us but was more than enough. Delightful food and service, the staff were really helpful and accommodating, carefully remembering every details we've requested for our day. The event manager has been very helpful as well during the planning process. Overall a very seamless and delightful experience with Dockside! :)

Delicious Food and Service. Plentiful of food. Got so many compliments from the guests about how delicious and good quantity and quality it was. I got so many special dietary requirements from several guests and they accommodate them all.

Excellent service - both prior and during the wedding.

29 Jun 2019

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!

20 Apr 2019

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!

8 Mar 2019

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!
