We initially chose to have our wedding at The Waterfront after looking at numerous wedding venues due to its unique characteristics. We enquired about the package that would be available to us and we were amazed by the outstanding value for money. We were fully satisfied with the service prior to the wedding day. We were taken care of by our wedding co-ordinator, Sarah, who was a newly appointed member of the team. We were extremely impressed with her organisational skills and wealth of knowledge that was gained during her years working within the wedding industry. We felt confident that our wedding was in good hands and we were looking forward to the day itself which came around extremely fast!Sent on 13/04/2015
Sarah was on hand to support us when setting up the room the day before to ensure everything ran smoothly. Our wedding day was perfect from beginning to end! We were greeted by Sarah during the ceremony who did a fantastic job guiding members of the wedding party. Following the ceremony, the drinks reception was served promptly on the outside terrace, which allowed the guests to take in the stunning surroundings. All of the courses during our wedding breakfast were served promptly. The waiters were very effective as they worked together as a team. All of the food was absolutely delicious. Through to the evening, the wonderful service continued when the buffet was served. The guests all commented on how impressed they were with the day as a whole. With all the emphasis of this review mainly based on the food and our wedding co-ordinator, I would now like to comment on the venue alone. The setting allowed our photographer to get many different shots of which we will treasure forever, taking advantage of the marina itself, the two lakes, the promenade and the national forest. I would recommend this venue to everyone! The new Mr and Mrs Banks would like to thank The Waterfront for ensuring that our day was flawless!

We had such a wonderful day at the Waterfront for our wedding. The staff were great, the food was lovely and they gave us the freedom to really make our day personal to us. Sarah, the events coordinator, was particularly brilliant and a massive help. Fantastic venue!Sent on 15/04/2015
