Orso is an incredibly intimate and elegant setting for a wedding reception. Everything from the planning and lead up, food and service on the night and the attention to detail only made our day so much more better. Thank you for also looking after our guests with dietary requirements. Everyone guest at our wedding spoke so highly of the venue and the great night they had. We cannot recommend Orso enough for a wedding reception!

I cannot recommend Orso highly enough! From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by the exceptional service provided by the staff. They were attentive, and friendly, and made us feel truly valued. The venue itself is nothing short of stunning, offering breathtaking views that add to the overall ambience and experience. It served as the perfect backdrop for our wedding reception, creating a magical atmosphere that our guests are still raving about. And let's talk about the food – it was absolutely fabulous! Every dish was beautifully presented and bursting with flavour. It's clear that the chefs at Orso are passionate about what they do, and it truly shows in the quality and creativity of their menu. If you're looking for the perfect wedding venue that combines exceptional service, stunning views, and delicious food, Orso is the place to be. Our wedding day was everything we had hoped for and more, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Working with Adrianna leading up to our wedding was an absolute dream. She was incredibly accommodating and went above and beyond to assist with any requests or concerns we had. Her friendly demeanour, professionalism, and exceptional organizational skills made the planning process smooth and stress-free. On the day of the wedding, we were in the capable hands of Sushant. He maintained the same level of professionalism as Adrianna and ensured that everything ran seamlessly. He checked in with us regularly to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. His thoughtful gesture of handing us water to keep us hydrated amidst the excitement of the day truly showcased his attentiveness and dedication to ensuring our day was perfect. Both Adrianna and Sushant played pivotal roles in making our wedding day a memorable and enjoyable experience. Their commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction is commendable, and we are so grateful for their contributions to our special day. We highly recommend Orso and their incredible team to anyone in search of a wedding venue with outstanding service and support.

How long before the wedding date should I be looking at venues?

Wedding date in Sept 2019 - is it too early to start scouting?

Orso Bayside

We would recommend booking your date as soon as you have a preferred time in mind.

We are currently taking enquiries up until 2020 and as Athol Hall is only one room the availability is therefore limited.

So to avoid dissapointment we advise to book as soon as possible!

How many guests constitutes a small wedding?

We are thinking about 55 :)

Orso Bayside

Yes, we have a room located on level 1 that is suitable for 55 guests.
