Dream wedding I hadn't ever dreamt of

Covid had put an indent on my dream wedding, but Matt and the team went above and beyond in every aspect, details, and element in order to create something I had never imagined yet the most perfect night of my life. From the food, that was changed by me a million times, and yet accommodated so well to all my requests, to the decoration, and preparation, which looked divine, to the service, the hostesses, Matt, and all the rest of the team, truly were friendly, hospitable , helpful.

The view was impeccable; a stunning view for beautiful pictures .

Perfect venue for our wedding

I was very happy with our venue. The layout was perfect for us and we also had the option to expand so we had plenty of options on layouts. The waterfront was an added bonus! The staff were wonderful to work with while we were planning and very accommodating. On the day everyone was professional and everything went like clockwork. I would 100% recommend and would use this venue again for other events.

Incredible Wedding Venue

We had our wedding reception at The Waterfront in April 2019 and it was the most incredible day. We were a little worried at first as we booked 18 months prior to the wedding date and a few wedding coordinators left and joined but in the end, Katarina was the most wonderful coordinator to deal with and we cannot thank her enough for providing us with the most incredible day. Katarina honestly cannot do enough for her clients; she is always quick to call or reply to emails and is such a perfectionist! The room was decorated beautifully, the food was gorgeous and all the staff were so helpful. Everything about our day was more than we could have ever dreamed of!
