“It was THE BEST night of my life. I had so many of my guests say to me it is one of the BEST weddings they had ever been to. I must say I would never have imagined all of the positive feedback that I received would have been so overwhelming! I have to say a BIG thank you to yourself and Lauren and all of the staff at ITALIAN VILLAGE for making it THE BEST night of my life!!!!!!! Without all of your hard work and professionalism the night would never have happened the way it turned out!!!!
Thank-you all from Jeff and I on providing us with the best service, best venue, and best night we could have ever had!!!!”

“On behalf of myself and Mary I really want to thank you for everything you did for us both on Saturday and in the lead up to the big occasion. It was an amazing day and we will be eternally grateful for how you treated us and looked after us for our wedding. Please also give our thanks to your service staff and the chef for the fantastic food. We certainly would recommend Dockside to any friends in the future. It could not have been more perfect. You are fantastic hosts”.
Derek & Mary
“So professional, every single thing is thought of with a personal touch”.
“We have been to a number of weddings across different Dockside Group venues. Each one has been different, yet each one was perfect. The team onsite are fabulous and not to mention the super helpful team helping leading up to the day. We felt like we were well looked after and no request was too hard, so ask away and don’t be shy!”
Kitty & Brendan
“Dockside was amazing. They attended to our every need and created the most perfect day for us. Enjoy the day. I wish we could do it all again”.
Amy & Gavin
“The service was perfect. I didn’t even notice the staff the night of the wedding. That’s how you know it was a good night. They were very professional in every aspect. I would highly recommend Dockside Group to anyone. The team kept me on my feet regarding the checklist. If I didn’t have that soft push behind me, I probably would have been completely overwhelmed closer to the day. Absolutely adored the venue and the staff. The entire experience was created with precision and attention to detail. Thank you Dockside for your patience and thoroughness”.
Lesley-Ann & Robert
“Excellent food and service, nothing could ever compare”.
Angela & Mason
“We just wanted to thank you and everyone at Star Room for the beautiful reception you organised for us. When I walked in to the room I thought it looked absolutely amazing and we were so happy with how everything went on the night. The guests have been commenting on how beautiful the food was and on how lovely the staff were on the night. We wanted to thank you personally for all of your hard work. Your organisation and knowledge was so lovely and made the whole process so much fun and stress free! You were so friendly and it was great to work with you”.
Matt & Penny
“The Dockside staff were great to us, as they understand that planning a wedding can be stressful. Answering your questions is what they specialise in. The checklist they send through is great as it keeps you onto of your planning and it makes you organised. All the staff at dockside are professionals in their field, so you know your wedding will be a hit when you have the best of the best helping you”.
Lori & Patrick

When we entered the reception venue for the first time on the night I was blown away with how incredible the room looked. The staff, food and entire night was perfection! Thank you for making our wedding a fairytale!”
Elise & Rhys
“WOW WOW WOW what an amazing day it was on Saturday. We had the most brilliant time, the ceremony was outstandingly beautiful and the reception was so much fun, we really did have a wonderful wonderful day.
I wanted to write to you and send you a huge “THANK YOU” for hosting our wedding reception and making it so special and unique for us as a couple.
Having my reception at star room was such a magical and fun experience and everyone really had the most brilliant time.
I had many many comments of how wonderful the reception was, not only how brilliant the service was (very professional and fast), the music was wonderful the food was delicious, the view of course spectacular (not only an amazing blue day but could you believe fireworks went off that night haha, AMAZING).
I would like the thank Rebecca, I had over my year of planning 3 different coordinators, all of them brilliant and incredibly helpful but would like to thank Rebecca for taking the reins and really making the last couple weeks such a smooth process and making sure I had no stresses. She was sincere, kind, professional and just all round lovely and amazing and I thank you rebecca so much for making my night truly brilliant.
Second of all I really want to thank John. I met John at the reception but my family met him earlier in the day when they were setting up all the decorations. My mum said what a truly wonderful person he was and how helpful he was to them and made their job a lot easier. Thank you John for being so kind helpful and wonderful to my parents. You were fabulous.
Last of all just a general thank you to dockside/star room over the past year I have found your company to be amazingly professional, thoughtful, everyone has been so kind and I couldn’t think of a better place to have had my wedding.
I have found the whole year Dockside ran everything they did from emailing me through information, the menu tasting day, drop offs and meetings and especially your open days, to be so well thought out, well run, the meticulous planning, kindness and care that goes into everything that dockside does just amazes me and I would recommend you guys to anyone that was looking I would even promote you myself haha.
I can imagine what a great company you would be to work for too. Everyone always seems to happy and really seems to enjoy their job. You have wonderful staff and coordinators and for that are truly blessed.
I truly do have no hesitation in recommending you for any of my friends, family or anyone else getting married to use your gift and I truly hope they do.
I wish you all the best for the future and again thank you for everything I had the most magical day ”
Kristen & Michael Burke
“The day was just amazing, from the Church ceremony, to the photos to the reception at Watersedge.
Thank you for being so incredibly excitable, passionate, and so professional. You were so organised and nothing as too much trouble. We had absolute confidence in your abilities and you pulled together an amazing event. The night was exactly how we hoped it would be and the atmosphere in the evening was brilliant. Many of our guests commented that it was the best Wedding they they had ever been too, and much of this as due to your efforts in making sure everything went perfectly.
There are also a few others we would like to thank….
Please pass on our thanks to Sebastian who ran the event on the night, the staff were fantastic, and whenever we needed something they were right there…we could not fault the service or timing of the evening..
To the chefs who prepared such beautiful food on the night. Everyone we have spoken to told us how fantastic the food was, and we have yet to find someone who went home hungry that night
Thank you to Sally who held the room for us while we went to Melbourne for a work trip… thank you for looking after us so well, and for giving us referrals- they were brilliant and made what could have been a bit of a problem just go away…
A special thanks also to Theo & Maria Drivas, Theo for always taking such good care of us, and Maria for surprising us on the night with a beautiful chandelier that really completed the venue.
So again, thank you so much for arranging our special day, we will always remember it”.
Oliver & Christine
“We would just like to say thank you for looking after our wedding and helping us to have a wonderful evening. The night ran perfectly, without even a minor hiccup. All the staff at the Italian Village were very professional and accommodating. The woman looking after us for the night was very friendly, calm and organised.
So again, thank you for all your help over the past year and we will certainly recommend the Dockside team to any engaged couples”.
Celeste and Andrew
“Thank you sooooooooo much for everything you did for our wedding.
The rooms looked sensational! Our guests haven’t stopped calling or texting me about how impressed they were with the food, the amount of food & the overall service of the staff.
I have to pay special mention to (& I am so embarrassed to say that I have forgotten her name!) the gorgeous woman who basically waited on Scott & I hand & foot. She was wonderful & always had a smile on her face. This morning when we came to collect the lolly buffet & boxes, she was running up & down the stairs & to our car helping load everything up. Please give her a big thank you from us.
Michael the DJ was brilliant & the photobooth attendant was just so lovely to our guests.
I had the best night of my life and want to do it all over again – & wouldn’t change a single thing.
I’ll be recommending the Dockside Group & in particular, the Italian Village, to anyone who asks. Actually, even if I’m not asked, I will tell people how fabulous you all are”.
Jessica & Scott
“I can’t rave enough, amazing views, amazing service, amazing food, JUST BRILLIANT”.
“I just want to let you know how overwhelmed and special we felt all night of the wedding. Sally made us many promises and delivered soooooo much more along with her friendly staff in which we wanted to say thank you BUT couldn’t catch them because they were too busy serving our guests. Together with the Prochilo Family we have been receiving many call and lots of text messages from our guests letting us know how awesome everything was including the food. Thankyou to Heiner the Chef with his exquisite food he served on the night compliments to him. Overall to sum up the night we felt like royalty along with our guest, thankyou Sally, Kristine and staff.
The saddest thing is we’re going to miss is dealing and speaking to the girls, nothing was left unanswered. All I can say to any one getting Married I can highly recommend THE DOCKSIDE GROUP Cheers and we can’t thank you enough for making this the best day of Joe and Suzanna’s life”.
