“We just wanted to pass on some feedback from our wedding we had at the Pier on 25.03.2022.  We wanted to say a huge thank you to Isaiah. From the moment we walked in on Thursday to set up Isaiah was nothing but friendly and helpful.  Throughout the whole wedding Isaiah checked in with both myself and my parents to make sure the wedding was running well and we had everything we needed.  We honestly could not speak higher of him and his service throughout the wedding.  Thank you for contributing to our special day Isaiah!  As for the venue, and ceremony everything ran so perfectly and it truly was the best day of our lives, we are so happy we picked the pier as our wedding venue.” Maddie & Max (Bride & Groom)

“We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception here on the Terrace and in The Lillias room.⁠  After being delayed due to COVID we didn’t know what to expect, but it was absolutely AMAZING!⁠  The staff were incredibly helpful from the start of organising everything up until the last minute when we left for our wedding night. We had our 8 month old son there and they were incredibly accommodating and helpful with him.⁠  The food was amazing, there was so much and everyone commented how delicious it was.⁠  The bartenders were great and constantly had all the drinks flowing and available for our guests.⁠  Finally the room looked amazing, we had simple flower arrangements for the room and it still looked stunning as the view from the room at night itself is enough.⁠  Thank you for making our wedding amazing!!” Beckk & Ben (Bride & Groom)

“Our wedding at The Pier was everything that we dreamed of and more. All of our guests were amazed with and complimented the delicious food, spectacular views and lovely service! Many said that it was the best wedding they have ever been too! We are so grateful to Sarah who helped us plan our special day. She was so friendly and thorough, and was extremely supportive, especially during 2020 when COVID lead to many unpredictable changes. She made planning our wedding fun and easy! Our event manager, Jess, did an amazing job on the night! Everything was perfect and exactly how we imagined it. It allowed us to feel so relaxed, and to enjoy our night! We want to thank everyone at The Pier for the incredible service, and giving us a night to remember!” Nicole & Jake (Bride & Groom)

“From the moment our wedding was cancelled in April due to covid, Sarah from The Pier has been nothing but amazing. Her patience and commitment towards us was just what we needed to lock in our new date. Together we achieved all obstacles with Covid continuing and got to have our special day after all. Jess and the team were amazing with making the night run smoothly and they were just so friendly. Jess also went out of her way to make sure the Bride & Groom were well looked after. Also the food was divine. All of the guests commented on this aswell. Thank you so much for a very memorable Wedding. Many thanks, Rach & Brandon” Rachael & Brandon (Bride & Groom)

The chaos that COVID-19 created for us was very much extinguished by the professionalism and knowledge that Sarah provided us. Our day wouldn’t have been perfect if it wasn’t for all her hard work and planning. Nothing was out of place on the day and we have her to thank for that. We loved The Pier from the first day we did our walkthrough, and we will continue to love it forever.” Kristy & Mark (Bride & Groom)

“The Pier, Geelong are nothing short of amazing. From their open days where our wedding venue was cemented, to the food/wine tasting where options were hard to cut back to just one, to our special day where everything was just perfect. The moment we were introduced to our event coordinator, Sarah, I knew our wedding was going to run just as we planned and wanted. The venue itself is AMAZING with huge windows feeling like your right on the Ocean! The food is incredible (even with warm plates, when being served) and the staff were honestly incredible. Thank you for such a memorable wedding to everyone involved on our special day. We will definitely be back for other functions at this venue” Maddi & Kade (Bride & Groom)

I loved the way you allowed me to bring in my own stylists and worked with me with every request I had, even allowing me to supply my own paper for the menus. Food was of a very high standard and was absolutely delicious. That desert barrel – just wow! There was never an expectation or pressure to use your regular suppliers. Value for money was also top of the list, we were delighted to be able to hold our ceremony, pre reception drinks and reception all at the same place. So convenient as well as the prettiest views you could imagine” Hayley & Jarrad (Bride & Groom)
