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.

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!

“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)

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.

Some even saying “That was the best wedding that I have ever been to!”, “A wonderful venue with amazing views”, “Food was delicious, great quality & quantity” & “The staff were amazing, very attentive.” It’s Fair to say that we made the right decision when choosing The Pier to host our Wedding.

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.

“Overall the night was enjoyable, stress free and heaps of fun. The food was exceptional and we had a lot of very positive comments from our guests. Thank you to the Chef. I would also recommend the dessert platter. It looked amazing and each bit sized piece was full of flavour and very tasty. Sarah provided exceptional service. Nothing was too much for her to follow up or to find out. She replied to emails promptly and kept me informed with all that was happening. I found throughout the experience that l could always rely on Sarah and this took away a lot of the stress preparing for the wedding. I highly recommend Sarah as an event specialist. Jessie looked after us at the wedding rehearsal, the ceremony and the wedding reception. Jessie was approachable and attentive. Nothing was too much for her and she looked after Jose and l extremely well. Both ladies were exceptional and l would highly recommend each of them. The Pier was a magnificent venue for our wedding. Jose and l as well as all our guests enjoyed the night immensely. We had so much fun.” – Karen & Jose (Bride & Groom)

“Everything about our wedding at The Pier exceeded our expectations! From our first contact until the wedding day the service provided by the staff was amazing. They always responded quickly to emails and calls and having a personal planner for the reception was a fantastic service and our venue looked better than we could have imagined! On the day of the wedding the staff were unbelievable, we really didn’t even notice they were there as they were so quiet when delivering food to the tables and packing everything away! The venue was one of the main components of our wedding that our guests commented on. Everyone raved about the venue, the view, the food and the service. We honestly could not have been happier with The Pier Geelong and we will be recommending them to anyone and everyone. Thankyou for everything!” – Laura & Zac (Bride & Groom)

10th November 2018
“The venue was beautiful!! So many great location on and around The Pier for some great wedding photos! Also, the Terrace on the Pier to have your ceremony is great for our weather, you can be out on the water getting married and if its raining you can keep it closed but still have a gorgeous view, if its sunny you can open it all up and catch a beautiful breeze! Loved it!! “– Courtney & Zac (Bride & Groom)

4th November 2018

“I cant thank you enough for everything that you and your team did to create the perfect day for Scott and I on Friday. You guys went above and beyond to create what it was we wanted and it was the perfect day, we couldn’t have asked for anything better! We all had so much fun and we were excited to share this special day with our family and friends in such a beautiful venue. Quite a few of our guests were scratching their heads as to why we wanted to have our wedding outside of Orange and as soon as they arrived at The Pier they knew exactly why. They were in awe of how beautiful it was! Thank you again, we’re still talking about how wonderful the wedding was and it couldn’t have happened and went so well without all your hard work. “Jess & Scott (Bride & Groom)

8th September 2018
“Having walked along the Geelong Waterfront many times admiring The Pier, I never thought it would be possible to have my wedding there, but after talking to Tennille, we realised that it was one of the most reasonably priced venues in Geelong! In September, I married my soulmate and the stunning venue out on the water could not have been more perfect for our ceremony and wedding reception. The day was everything we dreamed of, from the ceremony in the Hopetoun Room with a beautiful backdrop of blue water, to the Wedding Reception where we partied into the night with our family and friends – it was the most amazing day!

Thank you to everyone involved in our wedding from start to finish – Tennille, Shannon and all the staff who worked during the day and night. You made our whole experience seamless and easy and it was never too much trouble to answer my many questions in the leadup to the wedding. With a cocktail style reception for 150 guests, it was important to us that there would be enough food to go around so it was wonderful to hear our guests raving about the abundance of delicious food served on the night. Another highlight of the day was having our wedding photos taken around and under the venue, such a stunning backdrop which will always remind us of a very special day. Thanks again to everyone at The Pier!” -Talei & Nathan (Bride & Groom)

22nd April 2018
“The Pier! Great venue and Sarah our organiser was a gun at her job listened and delivered every single thing we asked for.

“Our wedding ceremony and reception at The Pier was incredible. It is a unique venue, with professional and competent staff, beautiful food and a variety of spaces to use. My family and friends are still in shock from me opening a bottle of champagne with a sword in front of all our guests, and I have The Pier staff to thank for teaching me that! We highly recommend The Pier for any special function!” – Anita & James (Bride & Groom)

3rd March 2018
“Peter and I were beyond impressed with how smooth, stress free and amazing our wedding night was…all because of you guys! Jess was exceptional both on the night and in the week leading up the the wedding, making herself available at any time and going above and beyond to make sure Peter and I were happy with everything. Our guests were raving about how great the venue and food was. Fantastic work guys and thank you again for everything!” Alana & Peter (Bride & Groom)

February 28th 2018
“We loved The Pier from the moment we walked in and booked in our wedding almost two years in advance! Nothing was too hard or too much making two years of planning easy and enjoyable. Our wedding was amazing. The views in The Terrace are stunning and create a lovely romantic, easy going feeling which is exactly the wedding we wanted. The Lillias room was perfect for our reception of 75, allowing space to roam around but a feeling of intimacy as well. The entire night our guests were commenting on the venue, the food, the drink selections and the waitstaff, which were all fantastic. Chris and I were able to enjoy the night and keep relaxed while all of our planning came together thanks to Elise and the team at The Pier. It really was everything we ever hoped for it to be and more thanks to The Pier.” – Heidi & Chris (Bride & Groom)
