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.

Beautiful venue, amazing food and attentive staff! The venue has been renovated in early 2020, however due to COVID-19, it wasn't being used until end of 2020. We initially met with Kizia to book the venue as well as the menu tastings just before the wedding, and the rest of the planning was with Julie Castorina, who was awesome in keeping us updated every single step of the way with very quick and timely emails! Thank you to all the staff at Orso Bayside for making our special day possible!

We were very impressed with the service provided by Orso Bayside for our wedding day. The staff made everything flow smoothly on the day. They were all so professional, efficient and friendly. Everything was done before we could even think about it - we never had to ask for anything. We thought everything went as well as we could ever hope for, and we were so glad to hear such positive comments from our guests. The beautiful venue and location at The Spit, great food and service were all praised by our guests - both on our wedding day and in the days following. The venue provides such a beautiful backdrop from daylight to evening. It is absolutely stunning!

All of our dealings with Orso reflected an organised, professional and polished company (with a beautiful venue). They adapted to Covid and delivered exactly what we wanted from our wedding day notwithstanding the unprecedented times, we felt so lucky to be able to enjoy such a special day with all of our friends and family in what has been such a difficult year for so many people – In such difficult times for couples planning a wedding, we would thoroughly recommend anyone with any hesitation around planning their special day with Orso to push ahead, we really can’t stress enough just how normal the day felt for us and how many beautiful memories we now have together from our wedding day.

13 Jul 2019

In the lead up to our wedding, Julie was absolutely amazing as our coordinator. She ensured everything was set up; that our suppliers were organised and that we arrived to our venue looking perfect. On the night, our event manager was Alex. He was absolutely amazing on the night! All our guests had such a great experience with him. He made sure we were looked after. I can’t think him enough for making sure everything went to plan on our big day. I am beyond happy that our wedding took place at Orso. It was such a beautiful venue and great experience throughout the whole process :)
