“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)

“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)

“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)

“Hi all, what can I say our wedding was honestly the best day of Marcus and my life all thanks to you guys. Tennille – The pier was the best venue and really exceeded our expectations. Jess was on to everything and made us feel so relaxed. I’m sorry I don’t remember the guys name that was with us during our break before we were introduced but he was incredible, and on a side note bought me soda waters all night and made me drink it even when I didn’t want them which Kept me sober – what I def wanted (I work heavily in customer service management and knowing what someone wants before they even know is of the highest standards) Tennille – I have to say a MASSIVE thank you to you because this wedding wouldn’t of happened without all the planning!”-  Danni and Marcus (Bride & Groom)
