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!!

Just to say that the feedback was excellent from the party last Thursday. We thought the venue was a perfect size for us, the photo booth worked well and a great DJ that got everyone up and dancing! We thought all your staff were very good, efficient very friendly and helpful and the food came out on time with no waiting which for the number of guests we had was no mean feat. On the back of this we would like to provisionally book Thursday 12th December for 2109 for our Christmas party. Look forward to hearing from you.

We Had So Many Compliments
We just wanted to say thank you again so much for all your help last weekend. We had a fantastic day and had so many lovely comments on how well organised the day was and what a great job everyone did. If you could pass our thanks on to the team. We also had so many compliments to the chef, the lamb in particular was beautifully cooked and enjoyed by so many of our guests. Thank you also to Maria for the many emails and organisation before the day. Tara & Matt

Could Not Have Asked For A Better Wedding Day
I cannot thank the staff at The Ocean Suite enough for making our Wedding Day so special! Maria in particular should get a medal for all the effort she went to to make sure we had the perfect day and everything went so smoothly! Communication beforehand was perfect and we were always kept up to date with what needed to be decided and when. She allowed us to decorate the venue early the day before which was super helpful as it meant we could relax in the evening before the wedding. On the actual day everything was fantastic. Despite the bit of rain we had, all of our guests loved the venue and said how impressed they were with it. We even went to the arcade for some fun wedding pics to remember our unique venue on the Pier. The food was delicious and all served so efficiently and smoothly. Ruben and the team were very attentive and the bar staff were helpful and always prompt serving everyone. The DJ was brilliant to finish the night off and we were even lucky enough to have booked the wedding on bonfire night and enjoyed the fireworks outside on the beautiful terrace. I could not have asked for a better wedding day and it would not have been possible without Maria and the teams hard work. Thank you so much for everything!!! From the new Mr & Mrs Shoesmith x

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 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.
