We highly recommend Coral Sea Resort! From the beginning right through to after our wedding they have been amazing to deal with. All staff were so friendly and helpful along the way. The resort itself is so picturesque even on a rainy day. We would like to personally thank our on the day events manager Claire. She was simply amazing and so accommodating with having to change our plans on the day due to the weather. Our guests absolutely loved the food and had nothing but great things to say about our special day.

Do we seat couples opposite or next to each other on a long table?

It's a garden setting. We want to allow better mingling

Coral Sea Resort

This absolutely comes down to your personal preference, however generally speaking, we would recommend that couples sit next to each other on a the long table. We suggest mid way on one of the sides as this means you are next to each other for intimate chats, and also able to more easily chat with others around you. 

Do most venues offer menu tastings?

What's the typical setup for a menu tasting for a wedding venue?

Coral Sea Resort

We absolutely do offer menu tastings, it is $75.00pp for a 2 course tasting or $88.00pp for a 3 course tasting.
