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.

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

Excellent........Perfect.........
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.

It Was Everything We Dreamed Of
Hello Maria, We have posted a review on The Ocean Suite Facebook page and Google, please see below: The Ocean Suite hosted our wedding on 15th Sept 18. Fran was the lovely lady who we first met and who helped us build the picture of our big day about a year in advance. Fran went on maternity leave a few months before our wedding, but was replaced by the amazing Maria ! Maria went above and beyond to cater to all our needs on the lead up to the wedding. On the big day to say they outdid themselves would be an understatement, they were the most caring, attentive and happy smiley staff we've ever seen. The food was fantastic, the wine was great, the aircon worked so well that people put jackets on (until we started dancing, then it was back on) our photographer was in love with the location and we have some great pictures to look forward to. we couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else, it was everything we dreamed of. Thank you to everyone at The Ocean Suite for making our day simply perfect. You all were truly amazing! Thank you again for a wonderful day!

Most Beautiful, Well-Organised and Incredible Day
Our wedding day at the Ocean Suite was the most beautiful, well-organised, and incredible day that we could have hoped for. From the moment we first saw the Ocean Suite and the beautiful views that is has across the sea we knew we wanted to get married there. During the run up you put in so much effort, from chasing down our missing in action DJ to coordinating with our toastmaster to finalise timeline details. Even the day before you happily fixed the guest list to move some of our evening guests into drop-out day guest spaces at the last minute. Being able to access the venue to set up the night before was very welcome and allowed us plenty of time to put things in place. On the day I don't think a single thing went wrong. Everything flowed like it was all meant to happen just that way, no doubt due to all your work in the background. The timeline slipped between dinner and dessert as Daniel and I wandered the tables, but we were never aware and it all magically got back on track. Our guests have absolutely raved about the food, the lamb in particular. Vegetarian guests have said it is the best wedding meal they have had in a long time and catering to some of our most complicated dietary requirement guests was apparently no trouble for your chef. Thanks again for all the help with making our wedding so memorable!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

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

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

Unique, picturesque, flexible, loving, affordable

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

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

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

There are too many to mention - fact!

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

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

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

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

What’s your favourite canapé?

Mozarella, tomato and basil leaf.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

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 is your venue's most unique feature?

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 part of your business are you most proud of?

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