Room capacity & booking requirements
On Saturday evenings our minimum booking requirements are: 80 adult guests, min $45 menu spend and min beverage commitment of $17 or more – March, April, Sept, October and December. For the other months: 70 adult guests, min $45 menu spend and min beverage commitment of $17 or more. We can seat up to 200 guests but for a wedding reception it is best to keep the numbers limited to 180 as you require extra room for gift tables…
Tentative dates / Deposit
We are able to hold a date for you for approx ten (10) working days without the payment of a deposit. Within this time if another couple is interested in the same date we will ask you to make a decision within 24 hours. If it is outside the ten days we will try to contact you first but if the couple pay a deposit we are obliged to accept it. The official deposit for wedding events is $500. You are welcome to part pay this provided the full deposit is paid within two months of the booking. Non-payment of your full deposit means your event date has not been secured.
We have flexible menus from $47.90pp. A web version of our full colour wedding brochure is available as a PDF file (downloaded from the tool bar above). We also have our 'Full Wedding Menu Package' available for download. Click the hyperlink below. All prices are subject to change with market conditions and we usually adjust prices & packages in May with the changes effective from July1st each year. Download Full Wedding Package
We do not allow ‘Bring Your Own’ beverages or food. However if you have a special bottle of wine, which you have been saving for your wedding reception, we do allow one bottle of champagne or wine (no B.Y.O spirits or liqueurs permitted – this also includes guest table gifts bonbonnaire).
Supplying your own decorating
You are welcome to decorate your own wedding event but this often is inconvenient to you as we have sometimes more than one event per day and we cannot supply access to the room prior to the day or hours before your start time. Our Room Hire fee is $250 (for this fee we will also include; bridal table, cake table and gift table decorations and assemble and place your centre pieces).
Why choose a Sunday?
You will have better availability of key suppliers such as reception venues, churches, photographers… and we offer an off-peak incentive. Your guests usually drink a little lighter as well, which may save you money.
Dinner receptions are able to commence from 5PM. Lunches events are able to commence as early as you require with a final departure no later than 3.45PM.
You can use our waterfront balcony for your wedding ceremony (after 4.40PM) – unless otherwise approved approx (4weeks prior). We have a ceremony package available please call us. You will need to let us know ASAP on booking that you wish to use the deck for your ceremony so we can have that area available for you on time. If you would like some help to source suppliers to help arrange your ceremony of the beach or in the park please call us. Our 2009-2010 ceremony package is $315.
How long do you have the room for?
Dinner events are for a duration of 5 hours which is included in your event package. This starts from the time your food & beverage is served (and does not include the ceremony). For example if you start at 5PM then you have paid to finish at 10PM, the bar will close at 9.55PM and your guests generally leave within 30 – 45 mins or so. If you wish to keep the bar open for an extra 30mins we charge additional fee for time extensions ( ½ hour and a full hour). Our liquor license permits us to serve drinks until midnight.
If you need to cancel your booking you will need to contact us in writing. Our cancellation policy, event duration & extension fee,… terms & conditions are clearly listed in your event agreement – which is issued upon booking.
Children's Prices / Entertainer Meals
We have special prices for children 4-12yrs (starting from $20.50ea). We have several different options for you to choose from for the children's meals – covering basic fish & chips / chicken nuggets and chips to a half serve of the adult menu or buffet. We also have a special discount of 40% OFF YOUR MENU for your entertainers & photographers.
Upon booking we issue an individual agreement which outlines our terms & conditions along with any specific needs discussed. We also issue you with a user name & password for you to access other helpful online information specifically designed to assist our brides-to-be such as: supplier contact information, room plans, seating plans and other tips… Our terms & conditions, menus and packages are updated in May and effective from July1st each year.
