Full Description
Above the sea, your guests will enjoy a wonderful day out as they take in the views and soak up the warmth of the UK’s Sunshine Coast. The huge terrace area is a photographer’s favourite, situated on three levels, the terrace offers a portfolio of spectacular photo opportunities. Unlike hotel venues, there are no ‘pesky’ guests to interrupt your day. As the evening celebrations begin, you won't find guests congregating in a separate bar area. The Ocean Suite 'Long Bar', dining and dancing sit comfortably side by side, family and friends flow seamlessly from one area to another as they catch up with each other whilst creating new memories. If you have your own catering ideas, talk to us. We’re happy to customise every element of your wedding day, if it can be done, we will do it! It’s your day so it’s your way. Your wedding planner has over 25 years’ experience in the business and is supported by a fully-trained team of chefs, bar staff and waiting staff. Have a look at the testimonials. Come and have a look, we love showing off The Ocean Suite and so will you!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

One couple wanted to hang their wedding cake upside down from the ceiling (it was a Disney 'Up' theme). I was reluctant, cautious but..............it worked and was amazing. There isn't a best wedding, it's like having a favourite child, each is fabulously special in its own way.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Take a few minutes, usually whilst seated at the top table, to watch your guests as they enjoy your day, smiling, laughing and chatting. Take a mental photograph and store it away forever. Also, try not to keep the party going too much past midnight, guests have had a long day and you don't want to be waiting at the end for the few last stragglers to finish up when you'd rather be in the Honeymoon Suite.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Again, so many............

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are too many to mention - fact!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

If I told you, I'd have to............................

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mozarella, tomato and basil leaf.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Comfortable shoes, a lift home and a large, crisp, cold white wine!!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Its location, its versatility, its charm and its personality.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The feedback from my couples and their guests when I hear that they had the most perfect day, I couldn't ask for more.
