We were thrilled
Venue Service

By Julia and Matthew Dillon, on 13 Apr 2015

Thank you to everyone at Sails on the bay for the terrific job you did for our wedding on Saturday 14th March. We had an absolutely wonderful time and couldn't have been happier. The service you provided in co-ordinating from day 1 was excellent and Khom and Kevin did a great job on the night. The restaurant looked great, the staff were all friendly and obliging, and everyone raved about the food. We were thrilled with how it all went on our special day.

We had an amazing and memorable day

Having our ceremony and reception at Sails on the Bay could not have been a better choice. We hired out the full venue and had quite a number of surprises for our guests. The view of the sunset was stunning with the glass windows. Stefanie and Scott were incredible with the planning and coordinating on the day, respectively. Stuart, the in-house pastry chef, create the most amazing 600 piece dessert table. We had the most perfect wedding there.

We had our wedding here in November (and engagement party) and could not have had a more amazing experience! Perfect view of the sunset, fantastic food, friendly staff (super organised Stef and Scott) and an epic dessert table/tiered wedding cupcakes by Stuart and the dessert team. We'll 110% be back again :)
