‘Our wedding reception was just amazing. Darren, myself and our guests had the best time. You went to many flower shops to get babies breath as you struggled to get, thank you so much for all of your effort. All of your staff on the night were amazing too. Sarah was just all over everything on the night. In all honesty the Pier has the BEST staff. And those views…oh they were just amazing’ – Amy & Darren (Bride & Groom)

“I was a member of the Bridal Party at the wedding on Friday. I just wanted to pass on my absolute appreciation to our fantastic event manager on the day, Sarah. Sarah was brilliant from the rehearsal right until the end of the function. She was a step ahead of everything we needed all day and her team provided exemplary service. Every one was very complimentary in reference to the staff, food and venue. Hopefully this feedback can passed on to Sarah and her team.” – Anna (Bridal Party)

“Things happen so quickly once engaged, I told everyone I would wait a few years before tying the Knot, until, one fine sunny morning when Anthony did not have football we found ourselves at the Pier wedding expo! We fell in love with the Pier venue and decided THAT VERY DAY we would be getting married in the Lillias room and no where else! The day finally came and it exceeded all expectations above and beyond. It was the happiest time of our lives and all the beautiful people we dealt with at the Pier will forever be in our hearts for making that special day absolutely perfect!” – Emily & Anthony (Bride & Groom)

“The venue was outstanding and the food was amazing, to make it all come together I dealt with both Sarah’s and I could speak any more highly of them both. Even now people are still coming to me saying what an amazing day it was and how breathtaking the venue and food was. Our day was perfect because of the Sarah team. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!” – Brittany (Bride)

“We had our wedding at The Pier two weeks ago and it was absolutely amazing, with stunning views and excellent service we could not have asked for a better venue. From the time of booking 8 months ago to the pack down afterwards the staff were supportive, responsive, helpful, open to our ideas and suggestion and truly helped us to stay stress free and have the best day of our lives.
Sarah Molnar took over after our initial event planner resigned and ensured that the transition was seamless, so that none of the small details we had requested were missed out on the day and was so helpful with our last minute requests.
Sarah Laird was our function manager and she went above an beyond to keep us on schedule on the day. From helping us to know when to walk down the isle and shifting decorations around between the ceremony and the reception, to assisting family members with any questions or requirements, making sure we left on time and helping in the pack down at the end of the night; she was brilliant. She held our hand through the whole process to ensure we could just relax and enjoy our night.
We can’t thank the team at The Pier enough. Our wedding exceeded our expectations and they had a huge part in making it all come together.” – Sophie (Bride)

We were attracted to the Pier because of the beautiful location but it was the friendly staff and atmosphere that helped us decide that it was the right venue for our big day. From the initial tour of the venue to the rehearsal the day before the wedding, we were blown away by the level of service and commitment from the Pier staff to help achieve our dream wedding. We had both the ceremony and reception at the Pier and the day went perfectly! The combination of the friendly staff, breathtaking views and the amazing set up of the venue made our day so special. Our guests are still commenting on how great the day was and I would highly recommend the Pier to anyone looking for the perfect venue.” – Annie (Bride)

“Thank you for the management our wedding day on Easter Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful and everyone loved it! Our manager that day, Janeva, we were so pleased with her. She made sure I was comfortable with everything, and that above all, everything else went so smoothly. We could not have asked for a better night. Again, thank you for making it such a wonderful day for us!” – Pam & Jack (Bride & Groom)

“The Pier made our dream a reality. My husband and I are from Melbourne but when we were looking for a wedding venue we wanted a relaxed, picturesque venue out of Melbourne, The Pier ticked all the boxes. The Pier was the first venue we looked at and the only venue we looked at, once you see The Pier nothing else quite compares. We want to thank the team at The Pier from the bottom of our hearts for such an amazing day, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding. Right from the beginning when I first enquired with The Pier, Kerryn was amazing. Helpful, attentive, excited and professional. Kerryn helped plan our wedding from start to finish making sure that every detail was perfect. I am so appreciative for all the attention, love and fun you put into our wedding and am so grateful that I had you as my wedding coordinator each step of the way. To Jess, Georgia, Norbit, the bar people and waiters thank you. No one’s professionalism, attention to detail and care could be faulted, the night would not have been so perfect without your hard work. The coordination of the suppliers from Kerryn and the setup of the room from Jess was perfect. When Jess said to me ‘’leave it with me I have this sorted” she was right, she did. Our guest spent the afternoon sipping wine on the ocean terrace watching the sun set on the ocean and danced the night away with full bellies under the sparkling fairy lights over the dance floor… complete bliss! Thank you for a day we will never forget and always want to relive!” – Tara and Luke (Bride and Groom)

“Where do I even start with the service that we got from Erin other than to say that she was exceptional and incredibly patient and so generous with her time. They should take her face and put it in the dictionary next to customer service. She is the most beautiful person and ALWAYS went the extra mile every single time to find us the exact provider we were looking for always giving us a number of options, explaining the same thing that she had already told one of the many family members involved the same thing again and again when they asked (always being so polite and patient). By about mid-way to the wedding, we knew that we had someone very special on our team and we were quick to forget that Erin actually worked for the Pier as we thought of her as one of our friends/allies that we had known forever. I think that Dad asked Erin in excess of 10 times as to whether or not she has a boyfriend as he wants her in the family. The only sad thing about the wedding at the Pier is that we won’t be getting to speak to Erin every few days – I am seriously looking for my next function so that we will have an excuse to call.

Jess on the night of the wedding with Erin (who came in even though she wasn’t even working…. I mean who does that?!! That is not an ordinary staff member!!) was also beautiful and was constantly hunting me down to make sure that everything was perfect (there was absolutely no need to do that as everything was completellllllllllyyyyyy perfect!!) I can say that we have had at least 20-30 people come up to us and say that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. We had over 20 doctors at the wedding more than 30 lawyers, and a Judge – these are not people who give out compliments lightly (and I can say that they all went on to rave about the amazing night they had) I saw quite a lot the next day and they were very worse for ware…..So many people who were from Geelong said to me that they have never thought to have a function at the pier, but they couldn’t believe how amazing the space looked and how versatile it was and how proud they were to have such an amazing venue in Geelong. I have to say that it wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing work of these girls – Erin even had your maintenance man out on that tiny window to clean behind the decal for our seating chart!! If my brother wasn’t married…..  thank you x 100000” – Diana Serra (Bride)

“Our wedding day experience at The Pier can be summed up in one word – Perfection. We have had so many positive comments from our family and friends about what a great venue it was for our ceremony and reception. The staff are so professional, from planning all the way to through to table service on the day. The food was both perfectly cooked and presented. We cannot recommend it highly enough”. – Wayne and Cheryle (Bride and Groom)

“Literally the best service I have ever seen and that’s with 12 years of experience in the hospitality industry. If only my staff were as good as The Pier’s team”. – Hayley and Brendon (Bride and Groom)

“Thanks for helping us create a truly magical day to share with our family and friends. The location of the Pier is fantastic, the ability to have everything at the one location just made the day so easy for all. The beautiful backdrop of the sea, sunset and lights helped to create a romantic and relaxed atmosphere. Thanks to the wonderful Sarah, Tennille and staff your service and support was fantastic”. – Mary and Tony (Bride and Groom)

“Hi Gil, Laurelle and I were more than very pleased over all but in particular that the wedding day for Tess and Justin turned out the way the imagined it and probably better especially at the reception. Thanks heaps Gil to you and Darren for all your assistance and the entire team at the Pier!!!! We can’t wait for the photos and video of T&J’s special day. Cheers!” – John Cecic, father of the bride

“From the moment of meeting Erin, I knew we were in good hands as we live in Adelaide and I didn’t know any suppliers. We were happy to go with Erin’s recommendations and we were not disappointed. She went out of her way to ensure everything would run smoothly and it did! I would not hesitate to recommend The Pier” – Robyn Copeland (Mother of the Bride)
