“We had our wedding here, and couldn't have chosen a better venue! The food was really great quality and the cocktails were a hit. The decor and area upstairs that we had the wedding was outstanding and a great space for a small wedding. The staff were the nicest people we'd met at any restaurant or venue. Our lovely wedding coordinator was so organised, thoughtful, kind, accommodating, and just overall amazing.” — Holly A. 

 

“We recently had our wedding at The Boathouse Shelly Beach, and it was the most amazing day. The team on the day could not have been more accommodating and attentive. They always made sure everyone always had drinks and food. The decorations and flowers were absolutely perfect and were exactly as they said they would be. I did not have to stress about anything! All of our guests commented on how amazing the venue and the staff were. I can not recommend The Boathouse enough. The best experience from start to finish. Thank you so much for making our wedding day perfect!” — Lindsey H.

The most amazing venue with perfect staff, amazing food and fantastic theming and views of shelly beach ! The best decision we made was to host our wedding here.

25 Feb 2022

From the moment we enquired with our supplier up until our wedding day the venue was a dream to deal with. We had to reschedule once due to the pandemic and the venue was nothing short of amazing. On the day the staff/food/customer service and florals exceeded all our expectations and our wedding was a day we will cherish forever. The venue was accomodating to all our needs, responsive to all our emails and we experienced absolutely no problems! Still feels like a dream!
