“…Had the best night…”
Wow what an amazing night you & your staff put on for us last night. Had the best night, couldn’t have gone any better (other than never end lol).
Thank you so much, you’ve been awesome from day one & only got better. So so happy with how everything went.
“…we knew this was the place to get married…”
We would like to say thank you for everything that made our wedding day amazing. After attending weddings of family and friends that had a usual sit-down reception, we wanted a cocktail reception that allowed our guests to mingle, stand or sit whenever they wanted to.
Before we chose All Smiles, Sorrento Ocean Beach we looked at other wedding venues, however some of the reception managers’ ideas had clashed with our own. We recognised your welcoming, easy going and relaxed approach that we knew this was the place to get married.
We had so many positive comments from our wedding. Everyone loved the venue and location. One guest commented that from the four weddings she had attended in Australia, this was her favourite!
Everyone loved the wide variety and endless supply of food going around. No-one went hungry. The mocktails were delicious too! We highly recommend All Smiles Ocean Beach to anyone who is considering getting married on the peninsula. We also returned with family & friends for brunch on the following day.
Thank you for making the preparation, planning and wedding so enjoyable, and please pass on our compliments to your staff.

First of all a Massive Thank you to Kat and all the staff at All Smiles Sorrento!!
I was very excited and nervous at our first meeting with Kat, however from the second she walked in the room I immediately felt comfortable, welcome and knew that this is where we were going to get Married. Kat and Rodney (my New Husband) hit it off from the start which was fantastic.
Nothing was ever too big or a hassle for Kat, any request or question I had she was there to help.
After the thousands of emails and organising, the BIG day was finally here!! My bridesmaids were freaking out a bit as we didn’t do a rehearsal so they were scared to walk down the isle, Kat took us down and lined us up, she spoke to the girls, calmed them down and sent them on their way.
Everything ran perfectly, I could not fault a thing.
All of our guest have raved about the food, the quality and quantity!! And the service was amazing.
I will be recommending All Smiles to everyone and hopefully one of my friends will get married there as I would love to be a guest at a wedding and enjoy all of that amazing food!!
Thank you so much Kat for making our day so special.
Love from the new Mr & Mrs Cherry xxx
“…Thank you for the most AMAZING day…”
All Smiles certainly lives up to it’s name. After searching for months for the perfect venue- being the perfectionist I am, finding everything that ticked the boxes was few and far between until we stumbled upon All Smiles. Not only were we greeted with a character you could call a friend for life (Kat), the venue had everything you needed to provide a perfect day. Words can’t express how amazing and smoothly our day went. The food was first class- and commented on by guests weeks after our wedding, the staff were over and beyond accommodating to everything we required and our day went without a hitch. All Smiles stands high above all the rest for it’s professionalism, amazing food, stunning views and overall friendly staff. Thank you for the most AMAZING day.
Lots of love, Shan and Bec
“…what a fantastic experience…”
I couldn’t help but comment on Kat Sillars and what a fantastic experience both Erica and I have had with our wedding.
As with the planning for every Wedding there’s a story, there’s anxiety, decisions and a sense of urgency. Our Wedding was no different.
The difference was Kat.
Not only were we confined to a tight and stressful deadline, but we had also volunteered for a Sorrento wedding with both families interstate; Kat quickly filled that supportive space which is something we’ll be forever grateful. On first introduction, Kat immediately welcome us with open arms and her infectious smile, was always on top of all the facts and always went above and beyond to guarantee Erica and I were composed, relaxed and comfortable. Kat’s outstanding customer service, proficiency and competence is first class and a direct testament to the reputation of All Smiles.
In short Kat’s honesty, genuine approach and ‘CAN–DO’ attitude is impeccable and cannot be faltered. To say that Kat went above and beyond is an understatement. Kat is accountable to her word, generous in her personality and professional in her work ethic.
We honestly cannot thank Kat and all the All Smiles team enough for their professionalism, honest hospitality and supportive attitude to ensure everyone had the most amazing experience.
Please pass on my praise to Kat, and anyone else within your organisation.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to assist.
Ryan and Erica Evans
Kat, you absolutely made our day with how easy going you were, nothing was too hard for you or your awesome staff and it just made everything so relaxed – even though I hear the groom was not so relaxed the morning of!
Thanks to the lovely weather we had ordered not turning up, there was only 3 hours notice given to you that we needed to have the ceremony inside All Smiles instead of down on the beach as planned. Your amazing can-do attitude put us both at ease, no problem, no trouble, just got it done and the ceremony set-up looking out through the bi-fold doors to the beautiful view from All Smiles was perfect – and thanks for bringing out the brolly’s when the girls and I arrived in 30kmh wind and sideways rain!!
Every single guest we had there, from the younger crew to our nanas, commented on how fantastic the service and the food was. And although I didn’t eat as much as I probably should have (not for lack of your great staff bringing me the platters first,) what I did manage to get in my mouth tasted beautiful – the desserts were my personal favourite!!
The staff bringing myself and Paul out glasses of water, or drinks of choice randomly so we didn’t have to leave conversations to go to the bar was great – I don’t think I would have drunk water all night but for the glasses that were pushed into my hand! Much appreciated!
I really just cannot praise you and all you staff for an amazing night – Grand Final day also! We had not a single worry and it was all thanks to the tireless work of you guys. Thank you so so much for everything - the day was just perfect and it really did come down to All Smiles. We could not have picked a better venue or more competent staff to be there for us on our wedding day.
We will be recommending All Smiles to anyone we can and it will always be a special place for us. Can’t wait to come back over the bay and catch up for some beautiful food with you
Just so you know Kat, we really think you’re awesome and can’t wait to catch up again
Love Rose and Paul MESSER haha
“…everything felt really special…”
We’re home after our amazing honeymoon, a bit of an adjustment getting back into normal life!
We just wanted to say a big thank you for making everything run so smoothly. It was all so lovely, everything felt really special. Everyone seemed to have a great time and I’ve got lots of good feedback about the food! Your relaxed approach made us feel really calm. It all went too quickly though!! I hope we get invited to a wedding there one day but we’ll definitely come in for lunch soon.
“…We were so happy with the venue and staff that made our special wedding day, simply amazing…”
Dear All Smiles Management,
We just wanted to express our sincere thanks and appreciation of your professionalism and expertise on our memorable special day!
After having my work Christmas function at Sorrento All Smiles in Dec 2012, Johnny and I knew that we wanted to get married here at Sorrento All Smiles. We loved the cocktail style options and packages and the venue was just divine for us locals who know and love the Sorrento back beach.
From the phone calls, emails and meetings over coffee or lunch from Dec 2012 to our wedding on 18th April 2013, (and beyond), we could not have been happier with the service, prompt replies, support, advice and efficiency of Kat and the staff.
With me being pregnant with my first child, in my second trimester at time of the wedding being 6months, I was hesitant at the thought of organising a wedding in just a few months, all the stress!! But Kat was so reassuring and helpful that I didn’t have to worry about anything.
To say Kat and the staff were helpful and amazing would be a huge understatement because they were so much more.
Kat made us feel like we had known her for ever and we have made a real friend out of her.
On the day the call had to be made inside or outside for the ceremony due to the weather and with Kats reassurance, experience and expert local knowledge, I chose outside to brave the wind, freezing conditions and possible shower after it had just poured with rain 5 mins prior to me arriving. We are so glad we did and thought everyone froze, the rain held off for our ceremony.
The staff ensured and insisted I ate and drank water throughout the night even though I wasn’t feeling hungry and was busy talking to guest, but knowing that I had to as I was pregnant. They also ensured I got to sit down and rest. And their service to guest with dietary requirements were spoke about also.
We had so many guest comment and especially say to us that our wedding was amazing because of the venue, food and staff. How delicious the food was and the abundance of it was great. No one went home hungry or thirsty.
Thank you once again for making our special day that we had waited so long to action SO memorable and even more special!
Love Danielle and Johnny
“…We had a bloody fantastic night…”
Where to start….
Thanks sooooooooo much for everything Kat. We had a bloody fantastic night.
Our guests had a ball – they complemented the facility, the quality of the food and the amount of food. And of course they complemented the grog situation! By the way – curious to see how much we got through??? Haha!
Many friends said to us yesterday and on the night that they felt it was THE BEST wedding they had attended and yes, the crew was magnificent and Gary Eastwood is a ripper – but you made life so easy for us in the lead up and on the night that we will have no worries recommending All Smiles as an unreal choice for a casual wedding.
We will be back!!!
Cheers and much love,
Mel and Stix Kenyon. X
The feed back we have had from guests has been absolutely amazing, and the one notable common theme was what a fabulous venue All Smiles at Sorrento was for a wedding. Everyone commented on the quality and the amount of the food, and also the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to make the whole event successful.
To say Kat and her staff were helpful is an understatement. She felt every part of the wedding as if it was her own, and her contribution and participation made every step so easy and re assuring. Every business would dream of having staff like her.
From our initial visit with Michelle, and with every phone call and communication (all emails and phone calls were answered promptly and efficiently) I can honestly say that All Smiles is one of the best businesses I have ever dealt with.
I am a hairdresser in the Dandenongs and have the opportunity to speak to lots of ladies, and I can assure you that I will have no hesitation in recommending All Smiles.
Thank you once again for making our wedding the most memorable day in our lives.
Michael and Linda Harrison.
“…very kind and relaxed…”
Our wedding day was perfect. The staff was great and made our wedding very relaxing and special. The scenery was amazing and we could not have found a more perfect place for such a special day. Kat the manager was very kind and relaxed and really made our day. The staff were more than happy to help us with any requests that we had, which really put our minds to ease. We feel we have made life long friends here and we can’t wait to come back and visit every year.
Ashleigh and James
“…can not wipe the smiles of our face!”
Just a quick email to say THANKYOU so much for last Saturday.
Each time we think about the wedding we can not wipe the smiles of our face!
You were so wonderful to deal with in the lead up, nothing was to much trouble. The day was perfect and we could not have been happier.
Kat and all the staff are amazing and we are so happy we picked All Smiles to celebrate our big day.
Thank you so so so so much, it was perfect, you are amazing, a huge thank you.
XOXOXO Jess & Paul
…we were so impressed…
Brett and I arrived unannounced to check out the fabulous location and venue of All Smiles Sorrento one early afternoon in late February. Kat introduced herself, sat down and spent the next hour chatting away about the venue and options available to us for our wedding.
We were so impressed with the venue, the staff, with Kat and her approach and the wonderful idea of a cocktail style winter wedding that we booked in a date for August 11th!
Needless to say the next few months were a blur of organisation, and Kat kept in touch during the lead up to the big day.
We were thoroughly comforted with the knowledge that Kat had everything under control, and made sure we had ticked all of the boxes on our to do list. We had assembled a great team to make the day a success from our fabulous celebrant, photographer, make up artist and photo booth to the band for the evening. We couldn’t wait for the big day to arrive – just a little nervous about the weather!
On the day, Brett, the groom had to choose inside or outside, and we look back at photos and aren’t we glad we did the latter! How can you match that back drop of the magnificent ocean? Our photos are fabulous of the ceremony, and we had a great time, including our sons and family.
To Kat and your team, we have received so many comments on the fabulous food and service on the day – you are without a doubt an absolute gem Kat!
Not only are you fantastic at your job, but you truly enjoy yourself too, and that makes the sincerity of your service so much more unique! Our boys had a great time, and all of the guests, and the warmth and energy within the venue is a credit to you all. We would thoroughly recommend All Smiles to any one intending a function of any type, and certainly it is a great venue for a wedding.
Thank you for making our day very special! We will see you all next year for our first anniversary!’ Love you Kat – thanks for everything!
“…we immediately fell in love with All Smiles Sorrento for our wedding…”
Dear Kat and the Team at All Smiles,
We are writing to you to thank you for the most amazing day of our lives.
We will never ever be able to put into words how grateful we are to you all for making our wedding day so special.
We can still both remember the first day back in October 2010 when we came down to Sorrento and met Kat for the first time. It was the first (and only) wedding reception that we looked at. After meeting Kat, and feeling absolutely at home, we immediately fell in love with All Smiles Sorrento for our wedding! Over the next 16 months we had many visits and lunches to All Smiles, with Kat always greeting us with a huge smile on her face, a big hug and a great laugh!
As the weeks grew closer, the visits, calls, and messages increased with Kat always reassuring us everything would work out perfectly! When our big day finally arrived, and our Limo rolled into All Smiles, again I was met with a huge big smile and hug from Kat.
As promised, everything went perfectly!
Our Ceremony was amazing, on the clifftop overlooking Sorrento Ocean Beach. The warm summer breeze and amazing blue water set the mood perfectly. The photos on the rocks of Sorrento Ocean Beach are spectacular! And we had the most amazing sunset you could ask for!
Our reception was honestly the biggest and most fun party we have ever been too! The dance floor was full the entire night and all of our guest told us it was the most amazing, fun and memorable wedding they had ever been too!
Thank you so much All Smiles, we can never thank you enough for our most amazing wedding and we look forward to coming down for lunch for many more years to come! Thank you again, especially to the gorgeous Kat. We really couldn’t have done it without you!
Lots of Love Tammy and Chris McGrath xoxo
“…every little detail was covered…”
…You guys were great, from the very first meeting at the bridal expo in Melbourne, right up until the big day and even beyond.
Dean was great, who told us all about how you guys worked and what you could offer. He showed us around Warranwood and directed us to Sorrento, where we fell in love immediately. Once the decision was made Dean and Michelle were great corresponding with me via email to get the event order sorted and to answer my many questions. Nothing was too hard or too much trouble!
When the day got closer you were willing to help with anything and everything, and made sure every little detail was covered. Meeting with you the day before our wedding was fantastic, it felt like you already knew where we wanted all our extra bits and pieces to go, and that you were genuinely excited for us.
Even when the big moment arrived and the weather decided to turn, you guys were on the ball and ready to shift our ceremony indoors in an instant. My arrival, the photography, the ceremony, the music, everything went so smoothly and was just perfect.
So many people commented to us that our wedding was one of the best they’ve been to, how delicious the food was and how lovely the staff were. I loved the fact you and the girls made sure I always had a drink in my hand and that I ate lots!
Everyone had a great time, and most importantly, so did we.
I have been recommending All Smiles to everyone! Thank you so much again for helping make our wedding the best day of our lives!
“…we knew it would be the perfect place…:
We loved having our wedding at All Smiles Sorrento Ocean beach!
From the first day we went there to have a look at the venue we knew it would be the perfect place… and we were right.
Our ceremony was held overlooking the ocean, the best spot for amazing photos.
The reception was great, the food was fantastic and we had compliments off all our guests.
Kat and her staff were awesome, very helpful, happy and just willing to do absolutely anything for us, even have a boogie on the dance floor.
We have been told by many of our guests that ours was the best wedding they have been to in a long time.
Thank you for an unforgettable night and we would highly recommend All Smiles Sorrento to anyone without hesitation.
Kelly & Leigh
“…the best wedding they have ever been to…”
We cannot thank you enough for all you did in helping us celebrate our wedding and truly making it the best day of our lives. Listening to the waves roll in as we were saying our vows was incredible.
All our family and friends have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.
The food was incredible and the atmosphere on the night was amazing.
A very special thank you to Kat, who was incredibly professional and made sure our day ran perfectly.
Our wedding was better than we could of ever imagined and I would recommend All Smiles, Sorrento to anyone.
Thank you again,
Brandon & Teagen Allison xxoo
“One word….. AWESOME We came out ALL SMILING!”
Amazing.. We really did pick the most perfect venue for our wedding day.
We have to say a HUGE thank-you Kat, she made the day/night run so smoothly. Having two young boys she helped though the night,the staff were great getting them into bed, which they set up in the back room.
Kat was so helpful, especially on our big day. Any request was answered quickly, she made sure we had enough to eat in between chatting friends and family, she was always there when and if we needed her and would always ask us if everything was going ok. And made sure the cocktails were always in our hands!
My mum was worried about having a cocktail wedding with the food side of things, but the food was amazing and kept coming through out the whole night, all of our guests were raving about how yummy and full they were and not one of them went to Macca’s on the way home!! And of course the views and the set up were beautiful. Photos turned out fantastic.
Thank you to everyone at All Smiles. Our day was perfect and we owe it all to the wonderful staff and venue. It was absolutely the best day of our lives.
Love Lauren & Sam Bourke
“You guys are brilliant at what you do”
Sorrento I am shattered it is all over I cried! And have cried so many times hahah I just want to do it all again. I had the most amazing time! You guys are brilliant at what you do. We have received so many phone calls from our guests complimenting the whole day but in particular All Smiles for everything from your service, food, drinks, venue, everything. Even for our guests with special dietary requirements you accommodated their needs and they personally thanked us for the effort you went to which was to ensure they didn’t go hungry! I just keep reliving the moment over and over again in my head. I cannot wait to see our video and photos.
I sent you through some pictures friends have put up on facebook. When the professionals come through, I will send you some of All Smiles I promise!!
We cannot wait to come back down your way. We will make it our destination spot that’s for sure. Thanks again for everything xxxx
Ash and Brooke xoxox
“The food was amazing and kept coming through out the whole night”
Dear All smiles, wow what can we say.. We really did pick the most perfect venue for our wedding day. Although we knew this from the moment we went down to chat to Kat about how the day unfolds we didn’t really imagine it would be so easy and flow so perfectly! We have to say a HUGE shout out to Kat, she really is the rock of All Smiles when it comes to weddings. She was so helpful, especially on our big day. Any request was answered quickly, she made sure we had enough to eat in between chatting to our guests, she was always there when and if we needed her and would always ask us if everything was going ok. The food was amazing and kept coming through out the whole night, all of our guests were raving about how yummy it was and no not one of them went to Macca’s on the way home!! And of course the views and the set up were beautiful. We could go on forever but we really just want to get across a massive Thank you to everyone at All Smiles. Our day was perfect and we owe it all to the wonderful staff and venue.
Mr and Mrs Eden
“It was absolutely the best day of my life!!”
It was absolutely the best day of my life!! Hubby enjoyed it as well
Perfect venue, staff, food, entertainment, day / night. The only downside was my speech which went for 33 minutes!!
Thank you to you and the all smiles team! I would also like to write a formal commendation letter on Kat/Cat’s professionalism and outstanding management and coordination on the day.
“amazing Food, venue and the staff”
Thank you so very much Kyra & Kat for an amazing day, It was fantastic!!!
Everyone had such a great night and we have had so many comments on the amazing Food, venue and the staff.
All our guests have commented on how brilliant the All Smiles staff members were and loved the personal interaction you had with them. Everything went so smoothly, there was no stress , no worries just a beautiful wedding day with memories we will cherish forever. MWAH xox
Thank you again so very much.. Words really cant express my appreciation to the All Smiles Staff for making our Wedding Day Perfect.
“it was everything we could have dreamed of”

The staff were fantastic, people have not stopped raving about the food. Big thanks again. if you could please pass this on to kat it would be much appreciated.
Steven and Carly Kenny
“nothing but great reports from all of our guests”
We had a brilliant day, and nothing but great reports from all of our guests. The venue and staff were amazing, and really made our wedding the fun casual affair we were wanting.
Everyone said how great the food was, but one thing a few people mentioned was that maybe the fish and chips should have been bought out earlier in the night, as heaps were left uneaten as people had already filled up on the smaller nibbles.
The location was great, and we have some fantastic photos from the rocks, and also outside on the grass, I will email you some when I get home.
We cant thank you enough, and would happily recommend All Smiles to anyone considering a wedding there. You say that no-one will go home hungry, and that was most certainly the case.
Nat & Ryan
“All Smiles is THE best venue ever”
Thank you SO much for all your help with the lead up to the wedding, you were so easy going and easy to talk to and just made everything so simple! Please also pass on our thanks to Kat who was just as wonderful on the day making sure everything ran smoothly and trying to make sure that Marco and I were eating The time really does fly, I think I had maybe 3 pieces of food the entire night. I was so annoyed with myself the next day, the food looked divine and I just didn’t have enough of it!
I have attached a couple pics of the day (sorry for so many I just couldn’t decide which ones you would like to see). We had an absolute ball. All Smiles is THE best venue ever. All our friends and family loved it, loved the food, loved the atmosphere. We had a lot of people tell us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I really do think that it has a lot to do with the venue and food and all the staff were just so lovely and helpful.
So thanks again for everything you did to help us out. I think you have found your perfect job, you are SO good at it!
I hope you are having a lovely week!
Love Marco and Natalie
“took the time to listen to us”
Steve and I got married at All Smile Sorrento on the 30th December 2011 and I wanted to write and let you know just how fantastic the venue and the staff are. We had a very particular type of wedding in mind. The day was to be relaxed and purely a celebration of our relationship. We looked around at a lot of venues, but from the minute we walked into All Smiles and sat down with Kat to discuss what we wanted and how we wanted the day to pan out, we knew we had the right person and the right venue. We locked in our date there and then!
Kat took the time to listen to us, then explain how All Smiles could cater to our needs. The whole process of arranging the day was just so much easier because I knew that Kat and the team at Sorrento would bend over backwards to assist.
Our day came and we had the most perfect weather and the most beautiful backdrop. Everything that we were promised was delivered and then some.
I felt so at home on the day, not as if i was just visiting some strange place, more like i was relaxing in my own loungeroom surrounded by my family and friends. I know as the bride you expect to be treated like a princess but every single guest who was there was given the royal treatment. I have had so many comments from family and friend about what a fantastic day they had, many saying its the best wedding they have ever been to.
Thank you for providing the most gorgeous location for our wedding day. Please pass on my very heartfelt gratitude to Kat and the whole team at Sorrento for listening to us and making our day absolutely everything we hoped for. We’ll be back in 10 years time to renew our vows and we have some significant birthdays to celebrate soon and you will definitely be on the top of our list of locations for those too
With our most heartfelt thanks
Leanne and Steve Olsen
“The venue looked fantastic, a wonderful relaxed atmosphere”
In the last 12 months I have had the pleasure of going to 2 very different weddings at your All Smiles venue in Sorrento.
I’m sending this e-mail because I believe that when you have a wonderful time somewhere it is always good to give positive feedback.
The first wedding was a young couple (my niece) and the 2nd wedding was one of my best friends and she is in her 40’s. Both of these weddings would have to be on the top of my list of best nights. The venue looked fantastic, a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The staff was out of sight, they were cheery and enthusiastic, and the food was 2nd to none and plenty of it. This was wonderful as sometimes when you have a finger food function you can be left still wanting more, well this wasn’t the case it tasted superb and was plentiful.
The Manager who was there for both weddings had everything running smoothly and moving the crowds to where they needed to be. She had total control over everything and her staff seemed to enjoy working there.
Thanks All Smiles for 2 terrific nights and I will definitely be recommending this venue to anyone I’ll be talking to.
“When I first walked in I nearly cried at how beautiful the place looked”
Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and the team from All Smiles! Right from the beginning when I first met with Kat down at Sorrento it was just so easy and comfortable and exciting and I instantly knew that this was where we wanted to get married. I didn’t even look anywhere else!
Kyra you have been amazing with absolutely everything. Made our wedding a pleasure to plan with no hiccups at all. I was so excited after every bit of correspondence with you. You were there right from the start and with me the whole way through the planning and that kept my mind at ease and the excitement going.
On the day we unfortunately had I think the most wet and windy day in November. I went down and saw Kat in the morning and she put my worried and disheartened mind at ease and assured me that it would still be just as beautiful and it was! When I first walked in I nearly cried at how beautiful the place looked and the ambience in the room was just gorgeous. I actually think now looking back at the photos and video that I preferred it to actually be inside. It was so beautiful and intimate and I know I would not have got the same feeling out on the lawn (although that would have just been amazing!) Everyone of my guests that spoke to me about the ceremony agreed with this and all said it was so magical and beautiful. So everything worked out in the end even though it was not how I had imagined to to be. I was one very overwhelmed and happy bride.
The reception was just perfect! I wish I could have remembered more but I was just running on adrenaline I think! I looked back on the video and it was really beautiful and everyone was having so much fun. The next day I had many conversations with some of our guests and they all said it was one of the best weddings they had been too. The food was amazing, the drinks were great, the feeling in the room was perfect, the place looked beautiful and the whole event ran smoothly. They all had so much fun and so did we. Kat was just great all night and to have things run the way I wanted, like after coming in after photos feeling like a drowned rat she came and said that speeches were in 5 minutes. I asked for just 20 minutes to get myself together and say i to a few people and Kat was more than happy for that to happen, I didn’t once feel like I had to do things a certain way and not enjoy myself at all! The bridal room was perfect for me to just slip away in for a few minutes to soak in the night and collect my thoughts and have a breather.
The only thing that got me down about the night was the lost opportunity to have lots of great photos taken at all the gorgeous locations around Sorrento. My photographer was amazing and really tried his hardest but mother nature got the better of us and we just couldn’t get what what I hoped for. He also said the the ceremony was just perfect the way it was. He had called me on Sunday and gave us the opportunity to get some more photos on Tuesday. All Smiles again came through with the goods and aloud us to use the lawn that we would have on Saturday to get some amazing shots! So now my wedding was perfect!
Thank you again Kyra, words can not express my gratitude to you and the team. We both had the most amazing wedding. I will send through some photos once we have them back from the photographer.
Lots of love,
Anna & Shane Paterson xx
“Our guests are still raving about the food!”
Thank you so much to all of the staff at All Smiles for making our wedding the best night of our lives! We really appreciate all of your assistance in the lead up to and on our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for any of you, the venue was set up exactly as I requested and everything was amazing. Our guests are still raving about the food! We are so thrilled we chose All Smiles as our venue as we can’t imagine it would’ve been the same having it elsewhere. A big thank you to Kat for always greeting us with open arms whenever we brought guests in the view All Smiles before the wedding. your hospitality is amazing!! We always felt so welcome. And thanks for making our wedding so much fun with your happy demeanour, dancing with us and just being generally lovely. We are so grateful to you all!!! We look forward to coming back for an anniversary lunch or something down the track for some more of your amazing food!
Karinda & Heath xxx
“people haven’t stopped raving about the food”
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your staff for making our wedding day so special. I know you have a lot of weddings there and it must be hard for your staff to keep their energy up and make each and every couple feel as though their event is the most important of the year but they certainly do that.
All of the staff were so friendly and accommodating and people haven’t stopped raving about the food. Our only complaint is that it didn’t go for longer It was all over and done with so quickly.
We will certainly be recommending All Smiles to others (although I don’t think you need the recommendations
Thanks again and all the best.
“We absolutely loved having the ceremony overlooking the ocean”
We had a ball at our wedding! It was perfect……….except for the weather – which was a little cool and breezy (which you’ll see from the photos, even though you probably won’t see that my hands were blue when we were exchanging rings)! We absolutely loved having the ceremony overlooking the ocean, it’s such a beautiful location and is set up so well as to capture the spectacular view in the photos. It also set the scene beautifully for the reception which was relaxed and full of joy (but ran seamlessly) – just as we imagined! The thing we wanted, and loved most about the reception was that everyone was having so much fun – eating, dancing and mingling – instead of being stuck on a table making awkward conversation. We’ve been told by friends and family that it was the best and funest (not that that’s a word) wedding they had ever been to. Everyone also loved the food………..and the quantity and service! The best thing about the food was that there was something that everyone would like – we had great comments about the oysters, the garlic prawns and a couple of my friends were stoked that there were pies and sausage rolls! And of course the cocktails were a big hit – not that I ended up even tasting mine thanks to the photos
When we were deciding on our wedding venue, we wanted somewhere that reflected “us”. We didn’t want anything too formal, we just wanted something different and to have a fun, stress-free and casual celebration for us and our guests. Which is exactly what we got. As soon as we walked into the funky cafe at Sorrento, had a chat to Kat and tried some of the food we knew we’d found the perfect location for us! Kat your fabulous, laid back, but professional and generous manner was just what we wanted. You allayed our fears about the quality and quantity of food, as well as, how the staff would deal with people flocking onto the food. You also gave us great advice on how to run the ceremony and reception and even put us onto great suppliers and photo locations. We will be eternally grateful for your calm and caring help on the wedding day. You and the rest of the staff really did go above and beyond to make everything perfect. Special thanks go to you for your help getting the bird poo off the groom!
Kyra you made the lead up to the wedding so easy and stress-free. Your fun, yet professional and reassuring e-mails and phone calls really made the process so easy and I had no doubt that everything would work perfectly on the day and that the special requests that we asked for would be carried out without fuss. Your enthusiasm really helped get me excited about the upcoming wedding and I feel very privileged that I could return the favour and help you out with the FAQ sheets.
The other thing we really appreciated about All Smiles is that everything (including having the ceremony there) is included in the price, not like a lot of other venues where you pay through the nose for every tiny extra thing that’s above the bare minimum that they provide. We never felt like this was a profit making transaction, we felt like we were always dealing with people (and a company) who genuinely wanted to be part of our special day.
Needless to say, both of you made the preparations and our wedding day so easy and enjoyable! You are both genuine, generous and absolutely lovely people, who went out of your way to help us and to make our day great! We can’t thank you enough! Please pass on our huge thanks to the rest of the staff who worked at the wedding too. We’ll definitely head back down to All Smiles in the next few months to say hello and thank you in person.
Dean, I just wanted to include you on the e-mail to make sure you knew just how happy we were and just what awesome staff you have!

“Its a shame that it went so quick!”
I just wanted to write to thank you both so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so wonderful! You made life so easy and no request or question was to silly! We had a ball and so did all our guests. I cant believe how many comments i got from people saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I also had so many comments saying how amazing and friendly the staff were and that nothing was too hard.
Its a shame that it went so quick! I am going to have to try and talk one of our other friends into having their wedding there so i can actually try some food. I really wasn’t up to eating too much on the night so i missed out. But i was told by everyone how amazing the food was!
I have attached a couple of pics for you to see too. I havent got the professional ones yet so these were just a few some friends took.
Honestly we cant thank you enough. You guys are amazing! We will def be down for some more Sunday breakfasts as they are so yummy!

“Everything went so smoothly thanks to All Smiles”
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for hosting our wedding on 15th October 2011.
We had the most amazing day; it was exactly the type of wedding we wanted! Everything went so smoothly thanks to All Smiles. We still cant believe that the sun came out just in time for the ceremony!So many of our guests commented on what a great venue and setting it was and asked how we came across it. They also the loved the food and the relaxed, fun atmosphere at the wedding. I heard the oysters, ice-creams and fish and chip baskets were gone in seconds!Many guests also complimented the staff on the fantastic service they provided and how well All Smiles catered for people with specific dietary requirements. The non-alcoholic cocktails were a huge hit amongst our pregnant friends who couldn’t believe how thoughtful it was to be included.Kat was a particular hit amongst the guests who commented on her great service and fun nature!Overall, Jamie and I had the best time, we couldn’t have asked for anything more, except to do it all over again at All Smiles!

“The staff were extremely lovely and helpful”
Stuart and I had a fantastic night for our wedding on the 3rd September 2011 at All Smiles Sorrento. The staff were extremely lovely and helpful and made the night flow smoothly. The food was amazing we had many comments from guests about the quality and quantity. The cocktails were delicious and the drinks kept on coming all night which was great. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun and looked fantastic! A special thanks to Kat for her kindness and helpfulness on the night and the next day picking up our things. And thanyou Kyra also for all the finalising of the event order and answering all of my many questions.
“would be happy to recommend you guys to anyone”
We are just back from our honeymoon which was wonderful and I thought I would drop you a line to say hi.
Firstly thank you for arranging such a good day. For one the weather was amazing I can’t believe that we had such great weather in August. Please pass on our thanks to your staff they made the night. Everyone comment on the quality of the food the next day. I thought you might like to see a few photos.
Thanks again and would be happy to recommend you guys to anyone.
“We had so many comments from the guests about how spectacular the location was and how great the venue and service were”
Kyra – thanks for the follow up. I was intending to send an email as I wanted to give Kat a great big thank you as she was spectacular on the day. Also a big thanks to Kathy and Deb as they were fabulous on the night. Could you please pass this feedback onto the management for All Smiles.
And also a big thanks for your remote help along the way.
We had so many comments from the guests about how spectacular the location was and how great the venue and service were.
I have attached some photos from the night which was a big hit with both Wayne and I, as well as our guests.
“The service throughout the night was exemplary, with big grins on the staff faces and so much food!”
Hello Dean, Kyra and Kat,
I’d like to provide a glowing testimonial for All Smiles Sorrento for our wedding on Sunday 27th February this year. We chose All Smiles due to two things: the location (we wanted to show off the peninsula to visiting family and friends!) and the legendary service we’d heard so much about! Scott and I couldn’t have been looked after more by Kat. Before the wedding, whilst trying to find a suitable celebrant, we met up with three possible candidates at All Smiles and were treated to free coffees by the staff! We were welcomed to wander around the place to take photos since I planned a lot of DIY wedding decorations. On the actual day they were super flexible with my family setting up decorations before the ceremony. I was greeted by Kat as I stepped out of the wedding car – she gave me the biggest smile, lots of warm encouragement and showed me where to wait and when to walk down the aisle. The service throughout the night was exemplary, with big grins on the staff faces and so much food! The platters just kept coming until people stopped eating! The tiny icecream cones were a standout for me! Later in the night staff packaged up the remaining wedding cupcakes and made sure guests left with them, which is something I’d never have thought of. A huge thank you to Kat, Kath, James, Deb and everyone else working on our wedding – you rock!!
So sorry i haven’t written this email earlier. More than happy for you to put the photos on your website
We would like to say thank you to all the staff of all smiles for helping us make our big day so special and so fantastic, we had such a great time. A few months later our guests are still talking about it and saying how much of a great time they all had, and the food.. YUMMMM!!
When ever i hear if someone getting married I tell them to check out all smiles. Highly recommending!!! We were looking for a party style wedding and not a boring sit down and that’s exactly what we got. Best party of the year!!!
I want to say a BIG thank you to Kat, couldn’t have done it with out her, she help us with our ups and down and was always warm and welcoming and always with a smile, she’s ace

“our guests could not get over the constant supply of scrumptious food”
I would just like to say a GIGANTIC thank you to everyone at the All Smiles Team for our wedding back on 8-9-10 at your Sorrento Venue. Everyone had a fantastic time, the beverages were fantastic and our guests could not get over the constant supply of scrumptious food. The service was paramount to none and Kat did an amazing job and made our special day perfect, as did all of the staff on board. Kat relaxed us from the first moment until the minute we left and made everyone feel at ease and welcome.
Thank you again to you also who made the organising of our wedding seamless. We will be highly recommended to all.
Love Ashlea & David Edwards
“thank you for your professional, yet relaxed and extremely helpful attitude in the lead up to our wedding”
Firstly, apologies in the terrible delay in getting this to you, our poor excuse is that we have been out of Australia (and still are) on our extended honeymoon!!
We want to thank you for your professional, yet relaxed and extremely helpful attitude in the lead up to our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble, and this made dealing with All Smiles an absolute pleasure. On the day Kat and the other friendly service staff were fantastic and made sure that everything ran smoothly, and that our guests were satisfied and well looked after.
Commiting to our life together in front of friends and family in this gorgeous beachside location under the glorious sunshine was absolutely perfect. We had nothing but positive feedback from our guests who all commented on the stunning venue, friendly staff, rocking band, delicious food and plentiful wine! The evening was enjoyed by young and old, and Dave and I relished the relaxed party atmosphere that allowed us to dance and socialise with our guests, and enjoy our private moments together also.
We had a fantastic day, and can’t wait to return to Sorrento for subsequent anniversaries, to reminisce and relive our magical day.
Please find attached some pictures, feel free to use them as you like.
Thank you all so much,
Suz and Dave
