Can I just say that whilst I may be quite relaxed and laid back I’m not easily blown away. I can’t find the words to tell you how much I loved my wedding day. Aside from marrying the love of my life, the venue was the most spectacular addition to the day that I could have ever have dreamed of.
I am still on cloud nine and couldn’t have picked a better backdrop for my wedding.

Your service was second to none. I may be rambling, but it’s important that you know just how spectacular everything was.
I have an extensive background in organising events, conferences and large functions so I can confidently say that the service provided by Sandringham Yacht Club cannot be matched.

On behalf of Adrian and I, I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done in bringing everything together.

Last Saturday was my daughter’s wedding arranged and coordinated at the SYC.
The comments I have been receiving from the guests and the wedding party have been amazing. Everybody is been raving about the venue, the organisation, the food and service of alcohol.
Indeed a lot of them have even said it was best wedding they have ever been to.
Please pass on our congratulations to all the staff at Sandringham Yacht Club who were involved in the organisation of this event.

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude to you and your staff for hosting our wedding and making it such a special occasion. 
The feedback from my guests was truly amazing; compliments about the venue, the food and the wonderful staff. I can’t thank you, personally, enough for all of your assistance and being so patient with me when I asked you 101 annoying questions. 
Your guidance on the day to myself and the bridal party certainly helped to put us all at ease.  

I would highly recommend your venue and yourself to anyone looking for the perfect seaside wedding. ABSOLUTE PERFECTION !!!!!

A HUGE THANK YOU for making our day special and memorable to us.

 Nick and I can’t put in to words how grateful we are for everything you and the rest of your team did for us.
Our day was exactly how we wanted it to be. The reception was amazing and all of the staff were so friendly and accommodating to everyone.
Our guests have said only great things. They loved the food, the venue, the staff and everything else. 
Once again a big thank you to you for organising our wedding and making it so carefree and relaxing for us.

We can’t thank Sandringham Yacht Club enough for hosting our special day. The staff were truly amazing, from the lead up to the final minutes of the day, everyone did such a fantastic job.
You were so professional but also showed that you really care and want to ensure everything runs to plan for the bride and groom which was proven when we had an issue with the DJ.
It was so wonderful that when you came to me with the issue you had also solved the problem!!
We honestly have no complaints and could not be happier! 

We have also received so much wonderful feedback from guests, especially regarding the food, and how much everyone enjoyed it and the service!
Everyone has said it was absolutely outstanding. It’s nearly a month later and people are still saying how much they loved it!

My husband and I, with 4 Japanese guests, attended the SYC New Years Eve Dinner, and what a fabulous night it was!
The setting, music (inside and outside) and general happiness of the evening was lovely.

We also met members and guests, complete strangers, who joined us in conversation and laughs. I wanted to pass onto the Club what a wonderful night they put together, with the added fireworks a wonderful surprise.
We were looked after by Lewis and Rachael, who were fantastic, very friendly, experts in their duties and knowledge and added to our wonderful night.The Menu, well what can one say, but exceptional.
One of the best dinners my husband and I have enjoyed for years, and our Japanese guests described the meal as the best ever.
The Chef came to our table and speaking in Japanese, just topped off an exceptional night for them.
We will definitely be back next year, and having passed on our wonderful experience to friends, they are also thinking of joining us for 2016.
Please pass on to your staff and the organisers our thanks for a great night

Liz and I are back from our honeymoon and are still floating on the high created from having the most perfect wedding day.
We both want to thank you and your team for helping us to achieve this as we realise that this was only possible because of the magic you guys create in the background.

The feedback we have been receiving from our friends and families who attended on the day has confirmed for us too, that the experience of SYC was also not lost on them, as they all expressed the joy and excitement of being part of such a ‘fairy tale’ event.

– Jason & Elisabetta

 

We absolutely loved our book club dinner last night at the Yacht Club, thank you so much for organising our booking. 
It was so lovely to have a room to ourselves and be able to chat and hear one another. 
Lewis was brilliant, so welcoming and attentive, we all had a wonderful night, food was gorgeous, lovely table setting, all made it a very special night.

We had an amazing day on Saturday and we were extremely satisfied and impressed with everything at SYC so thank you for everything and please pass on our thanks to Jess and Courtney and everyone else.  Very professional staff and it was organized so well, we are extremely pleased with how it turned out.  The sunset over the water was almost like a painting it was that perfect!  Thank you so very much! 

– Annelise & Luke

 

Wow! You are all A-MAZING! We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day even more perfect than we had initially imagined! We are still pinching ourselves at how gorgeous all aspects of the venue were from start to finish; our beautiful event manager who made sure everything was organised and running to schedule, the view of the bay from the full length glass windows (best venue view in Melbourne), the exquisite room styling by SYCs preferred supplier ‘Centrepiece by Design’ who nailed the ‘secret garden’ theme that I wanted to create, the sensational service from the hospitality staff and the quality menu from the kitchen which was just delicious.  It’s safe to say that our guests are still talking about it being the best wedding venue!  Thank you again for everything – for being a key contributor in making our wedding day the best day ever! We are looking forward to hosting another event so we can work with you all again and until then we will continue to share with others how wonderful our experience with Sandringham Yacht Club was throughout the entire planning process.

– Vanessa & Thomas

All of our guests had it up there with the best wedding they had ever been to, the location, the service, the food, the beverages, everything was amazing and made me look like a great bride/host. Because of you our wedding has now set the bar, and we couldn’t be happier with how perfect our day was.

– Kiam & Dale

 

All of our guests said how wonderful the food was, and were equally impressed that glasses were never empty. Thanks!

I wanted a summer feel for my January wedding, and after many weekends of visiting venues I stumbled across Sandringham Yacht Club with its breathtaking ocean view.  When I saw the venue, I knew it was exactly what I wanted. The staff there are exceptional.  They really go out of their way to meet your needs and the food is amazing too.  The bridal table is by the window so when guests look at you they see the ocean backdrop, which looks amazing.  I can’t tell you the amount of compliments I got on the venue.

– Tina & Alan

 

Thanks for all your help, the night ran very smoothly and we will definitely look at holding more events at SYC next year. I keep hearing such positive feedback on the event location, the views and how amazing the food was. Everyone loved the mains and dessert, so please pass this onto your chef.
Thanks again and I look forward to working with you and SYC again.

I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for the great service once again at the Sandringham Yacht Club.
Everything went really well and I must say the dinner was beautiful.
The group enjoy having their quarterly meeting at SYC, it gives them the opportunity to go for a walk, and the space is just right, not to mention a pre-dinner drink on the deck!
I look forward to working with you again on the next workshop.
