Must See: 2 Waterfront Cocktail Wedding Reception Venues

Specialising in stylish cocktail wedding receptions with a view in Melbourne & Sorrento

Sometimes, you don’t need a huge wedding reception with a sit-down meal. Sometimes, you just want a chic celebration with a few of your closest friends and family. Or sometimes, you have a huge crowd, but you just don’t have the budget to feed everyone a gourmet meal. A cocktail wedding reception can be the right choice in all these scenarios.

The waterfront venues at All Smiles can host up to 200 guests, making them ideal for wedding celebrations of a variety of types and sizes. You might choose to have a cocktail wedding reception on its own, or you might have a cocktail reception in addition to a more formal dinner reception at another venue. The staff at All Smiles will work with you to coordinate the details so that the celebrations flow smoothly on the big day.

Docklands Waterfront Wedding Venue

The Docklands venue overlooks the stunning Victoria Harbour, which includes a stunning city skyline that sparkles in the night. The harbor welcomes dozens of ships throughout the day, and reception guests enjoy watching their coming and going on the water.

Local Attractions

Both venues are conveniently located to attractions around the city. Wedding guests can enjoy other fine dining or recreational options when they are waiting between wedding festivities. Your out-of-town guests also have easy access to plenty of recreational opportunities when they are not participating in wedding celebrations. If you are planning a secondary reception, the venues are also close enough to other reception venues to make coordinating convenient.

Wedding Decor

Both venues offer contemporary décor for a stylish and sophisticated wedding celebration. Receptions can be decorated in any theme you like, and the venue will provide an appropriate backdrop. The staff at All Smiles will work with you to make suggestions for décor, to help you figure out how to create the look you want, to recommend appropriate vendors, and more. Couples can also turn over responsibility for decorating the space entirely to the staff at All Smiles. The venue provides full catering, a sound system and microphone, décor, and more. You can choose from small dishes that represent local cuisine, gourmet fare, favorite comfort foods, avant garde cuisine, or whatever other type of cuisine you like. You can work with the chef at All Smiles to create the cocktail reception menu that best reflects your wedding theme and creates the kind of reception you want.

Wedding Spaces

The venues at Victoria Harbour and Sorrento Beach both offer indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, which gives you flexibility for your theme, as well as for the weather. You don’t have to worry about what you will do if it rains or if the weather turns cold.

They will enjoy wonderful music, food, and drinks while they celebrate the newly married couple in style.
