March 2023

This venue was a clear winner for our wedding ceremony and reception as it has a direct view of the picturesque Sydney Harbour bridge. We held the ceremony on the Pier and reception space to accommodate 80 guests was in the marquee. The events manager at Pier One ensured our wedding specifications were met, service staff, bar tender and security were professional and friendly. Food sampling was complimentary and organised in a timely manner. Communication between event space and vendors was clear and prompt. Our guests could not stop raving about the quality of the food at dinner time and accommodations for BYO was perfect as it was a must when we were looking around for suitable venues. Our guests loved the location of the venue and the event ran smoothly.

Rhiann from Pier One is an absolutely brilliant at her job. We can’t thank her enough for ensuring our whole wedding ran so smoothly. We have had to moth our wedding 3 times due to COVID which created a lot of stress for us, but Rhiann was with us every step of the way. She managed all the suppliers superbly on the day. She is deeply passionate about her job, and is terrific at it!
