Meagan and Hayden, April 2022

Hi Alahna! Myself and Hayden just wanted to thank you and the deckhouse for everything on the lead up and the wedding night. Everything came exactly how I pictured it would and we had so many of our friends and family say what a truly beautiful and different venue it was. We also wanted to give a special mention to Manu, our event manager for the night. He was outstanding! The whole bridal party loved him, he was over everything and cool calm and collected the whole time. He had a laugh with us all night and sorted out our MC when he was late. He was honestly the best person there. Please give our thanks to him! Compliments to the chef and kitchen too. We had a lot of guests message us the following days saying usually the food at weddings is average but our food was amazing, fresh and just simply delicious! Overall though we have had an amazing time working with you to plan our dream wedding, and that's exactly what we got! Thank you again and we can't wait to come have brekkie or lunch at deckhouse again!

Mojdeh & Peter, November 2022

Hi Alahna, Huge huge thank you to and the rest of the team at Deckhouse for the most spectacular wedding Pete and I could ever have wished for! I knew it was going to be great but I was seriously in awe of everything from the styling, the food, the service, the music and acoustic, and how beautiful the photos turned out. I can’t thank you enough for your help throughout the entire planning process, you made everything seem so easy and efficient. We’re still reliving the day and will never forget how stunning everything was. Thank you again, and we both highly recommend Deckhouse and the fabulous team for anyone wanting to throw a 10/10 wedding!

Fatma and Karim, September 2022

Dear Issy, Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day! You and the staff at Deckhouse have been an absolute pleasure to work with to bring our dream to life. Please thank Sanaa from both of us, she went above and beyond to accommodate all our needs/requests to ensure our night was so special, we can’t thank her enough. We appreciated your kind gesture of hosting our wedding reception in the Harbourview Room, your hospitality genuinely made both Karim and I beam with excitement knowing that our wedding reception would be a night that every one of our guests would remember fondly in the years to come. The photographer had an absolute ball taking photos of us and our guests in and around the venue – they turned out beautifully! Thank you again for helping create unforgettable moments that will last a lifetime. The Harbourview room was absolutely breathtaking and the city skyline with the harbour bridge in the background created such a magical atmosphere that cannot be replicated anywhere. Our guests have given us so many compliments. I have passed on your details to a colleague who is getting married in October and will continue to recommend you to anyone who begins planning an event. Our love and gratitude - the newlyweds.
