Testimonials

“so much fun and such good food”

To the world’s greatest team at All Smiles Sorrento,

As much as I will try, I know this review won’t even come close to showing the gratitude we have for you!
There are no words to say thank you enough for helping us celebrate the “best day ever!”.
When we started planning we knew that we just wanted to have a massive party and give everybody an amazing time and that’s exactly what our wedding delivered._DSC2039
You had everything covered! Food, amazing. Drinks, perfect. Venue, stunning. Service, second to none.
All we had to do was turn up and let the fun begin, and begin it did!!!!
Our guests have not stopped raving about what an amazing night they had, so much fun and such good food. And so much food, which is always a worry when you are having a cocktail wedding.

Kat, you are a god send! We could not have done this without you. Nothing was too much trouble and you continuously went above and beyond to make our day amazing. I honestly have no words for the love and gratitude we have for you. We know that we not only had an amazing event coordinator but we now have an awesome friend as well!

Our wedding was, without any doubt, the best night of our lives and we owe it all to Kat and the All Smiles crew. It was so stress free and exactly what we wanted. You always hear about what brides would change about their wedding day, not us! We would not change a thing and I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I absolutely would, and have been!, recommending everyone and anyone to have their wedding with you.
Wish I could do it all again!

A million thank you’s from the bottom of our hearts,
Brad and Madison Harker.

“…We were blown away…”

Hi Kat,

Hayley and I would like to say a big thank you to you and all the team at All Smiles Sorrento. We had such a good time and were so impressed by you and your team and how helpful and professional you all were. All of our friends and family were very very impressed and enjoyed the night so much. We were blown away by how attentive you and your staff were, not just to us but to all our family and guests with their special requirements. You really helped to make it the best day ever for us! You were so helpful and easy to deal with throughout the whole process. The food was beautiful and we were so happy with the amount and consistency of it. We will be definitely recommending All Smiles Sorrento! Thanks so much.

Matt & Hayley :-)

“…everything we had hoped for plus more…”

Hi Kat,
Well where do we start!! What an amazing day.. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for plus more, the weather was just perfect, the venue and of course yourself and the wonderful staff! You made planning a wedding so much less stressful for me as you were always quick to respond to any email I sent asking questions and your happy and loving nature just made it so much easier for me.. Everything you and the staff did on the day/night to set up and make our wedding run as smoothly as it did was just amazing! From the shots you had waiting for myself and the bridesmaids just before we walked down the isle to calm the nerves and warm us up, always making sure Mat and myself never had an empty glass, getting on the D floor and having a dance with us, looking after our son Cooper for us when you could see me stressing about him.. and to top that all off you and your staff even drove some of my guests back to their hotel to save them waiting for a taxi! That is just going way over and beyond what you needed to do and it is truly appreciated. We had the time of our lives and we had so many people on the night come up to us and say they want to have their wedding there purely because of how awesome you were! There really is no words to describe just how perfect you made our special day! We wish we could get married every week just so we can have a party like we did :)

We will be coming down regularly for lunch and to say hi. I will be telling everyone I come across that is getting married that All Smiles Sorrento is the place to do it!!!! Love ya work babe!!
Xoxoxox
Kind Regards,
Stacey Silver

“…your staff took all the worry out…”

Dear Kat

We just wanted to email you to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your team for looking after us so well at our wedding. We had a blast, it was so much fun!! You and your staff took all the worry out, organised everything and kept it all running so smoothly throughout the night. Nothing was too much trouble and if we needed anything you were always there to help. Special mention to Elizabeth too, she was wonderful. The food was delicious and everyone was so full by the end. We had an amazing time, thank you.

Paul and Jo-Anne Lee xx

“…WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!…”

Hey there Kat!
Well we’re back from our honeymoon and it’s officially all over. *massive sad face!!!
I just wanted to shoot you an email to let you know how much of a great day Len and I had on our wedding day. I wanted to say a huge thank you to you as you couldn’t have done anything more to make the day more perfect for us! We wanted a more casual and relaxed day rather than formal and it was perfect- WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!!!
Also – Feedback from other guests have been nothing but positive and they could not praise the venue / food and all staff higher! Please pass on our appreciation to all staff members on the night as they were awesome!

But Kat you are a superstar- You helped make our day more perfect than imagined. Take us back!!! :):)
Lenny and I can’t thank you enough!

Hey kat!!!
Sitting on the balcony enjoying a beer in Fiji.
Jamie and I wanted to thank you for all your help and running around on our wedding day .. even though it rained and at times you had to be in 5 places at once, nothing was too hard for you, I didn’t expect to be waited on hand and foot but all you girls always made sure I had whatever I needed.
Our guests loved the food and our wedding was a party just how we wanted it to be. We’ll definitely celebrate our anniversaries at all smiles with you guys, I’ll have another one of those Pinacoladas you made me :) maybe you can join in next time.

…”That Chic Kat is amazing”…

Gooood morning Kat and the team at All Smiles!! I think I am starting to come down from my wedding high now!! I don’t even know where to begin thanking you for EVERYTHING you did for us to make our wedding perfect!!!Josh and Sarah

All smiles clearly lived up to its name because everyone was smiling and laughing the whole night, right up until they waddled out of the reception. The food was…….OMG the FOOD!! I have never heard of people turning away food at a wedding or going home full! I have been receiving calls, texts and speaking to people and the first thing they say is OMG the FOOD!!! Just delicious!!

The second thing they say is “That Chic Kat is amazing” and Kat you truly are!! You were such a blessing on our wedding day, you pulled everything together and ensured all of our needs were attended too, including attending to our son Ryder when he needed a cuddle or an ice cream lol!

Even before the wedding day, you were so great with communicating to me and every time we popped down to all smiles you made us feel so welcome!! The whole process of booking and preparing for the wedding was stress free!! I don’t think I cant thank you enough!!

On our wedding night, every time I turned around you were either interacting and dancing with our guests or you had drink and food in your hand for me!!

How amazing was our weather!! Can you believe one week before winter and there was no wind on the Cliff, we had the blinds up all night and our guests  were able to sit outside comfortably all night! The venue was just amazing! I have been chatting with some friends and have requested that when they get married they choose All smiles  as their venue because I want to be a guest at an all smiles wedding and enjoy the night from a different perspective! I want to do it alllll over again!!

So thank you thank you thank you thank you a million times over!! I will never get tired of our guest saying “Best Wedding Ever” and that’s all thanks to All Smiles and Kat!!

See you soon Sarah and Josh Harkness xoxo

“…a most memorable night!…”

I attended Zannah & Robbie’s wedding on Monday 10 March 2014.
I just wanted to express my appreciation for such a wonderful night.
Firstly, the setting and backdrop for the ceremony were unbeatable. The evening was warm and perfect and the view of the sea behind the bride and groom took my breath away. The ceremony was beautiful. Proceedings were gracefully and discretely directed by staff and the priest.
The physical layout of the venue was attractive and functional. We had the choice of noisy partying inside or relaxed conversation outside. The selection of stools, comfy couches and seats made mingling easy and provided comfort for all ages and special needs. As the evening progressed, the champagne flowed freely and happy reunions occurred, Meanwhile, we were treated to a changing kaleidoscope of colour as the sunset sky and sea put on a special show for our viewing.
The music provided by the DJ seemed to appeal to all ages and made the urge to dance irresistible! Some guests just could not keep off that dance floor. Age was no barrier.
And then there was the food: the delicious morsels just kept coming. The finger food was interesting and plentiful and certainly constituted more than a normal sit-down meal.
Finally, the staff deserve the highest accolades. They were at once discrete and friendly and their relaxed attitude added to the ambiance of the evening. I mentioned in passing that I am gluten-free. After that, a constant stream of specially made gluten-free goodies arrived so that I was completely and utterly full! I was delighted and extremely grateful for the special effort that was made by staff.
Thank you to All Smiles and staff for a most memorable night!

“…BEST wedding EVER…”

Hi Kat

Thought I’d send you a really quick G’day as we have just got back from our amazing honeymoon in Langkawi.

Wanted to pass on a HUGE thank you to you for your fantastic support and assistance on our very special day.

Your crew were great to and really helped make the night an awesome one.IMG_4221

I’m yet to hear one of our guests not say….BEST wedding EVER (and I’m trying not to be biased here)

Still gathering heaps of pics but thought I’d send you a couple to have a look at that I thought would give you a smile.

I’ll get you a proper pic from our camera of our rock pool jump across to soon. Bet you love that one :-)

Thanks sooo much again and chat soon

Robby and Zannah x

“…Thank you Thank you Thank you…”

Kat, what can I say. You are fricking AMAZING!!!!

We had the best night on Friday night and you and the All smiles staff played such a huge part in that.

From the moment we met you we knew things would go smoothly and they did. You do such an awesome job in making everything seem so easy and fun.

There was definitely no need for bridezilla moments with you around.

All our guests commented on the lovely food and the even lovelier staff.

We can’t thank you enough for your efforts (and your photo booth photos!!! lol)

Thank you Thank you Thank you

Lots of love,

Brylie and Shaun

“…our perfect wedding day…”

Hi Dean,
Craig and I had our wedding at All Smiles on Friday 17th January 2014. We would highly recommend a wedding at All Smiles! It was such a fun, relaxing night, just as we wanted it to be. During the preparation process, your suggestion list was extremely helpful and anytime we were in the area we would pop in to have a look at the venue and we were warmly greeted and thoroughly looked after.0525 resized

We would like to make special mention of Kat who was so friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. Kat went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we wanted. Every email was cheerful and we felt so comfortable approaching her about anything and everything!

All of our guests raved about the venue, food and friendly staff, especially Kat. Any minor problem we had, e.g. DJ packing up a bit too early for our liking, Kat was onto and sorted it out for us – She did everything to make sure we had the night of our lives, and that we did!

Thank you to everyone at All Smiles for making the lead up so stress free and for helping us create our perfect wedding day!

We will happily write any kind of review for your website etc.

Thanks again to you all – I have attached a few photos :)

Leah and Craig Hughes

“…extremely high standard…”

Wow! Wow! Wow! What an absolutely aahhhmmaazziing wedding!!!

We have had so so many compliments about everything from the ceremony, staff, food, drinks, how it ran, and how amazing the whole venue was!

Both of our parents were soo impressed and so happy and couldn’t praise you guys more! Nothing was too hard or at anytime an issue, I even had a lovely staff member holding my dress and vail as i was waiting to walk down the aisle! what service! and she was just as fantastic all night! Your staff must love working there because it absolutely shows!! Everyone could easily get drinks and there was so much food!

Kat, you ensured neither jack or I were without a drink, and were making sure I had something to eat! I cannot thank you enough!! The whole experience from the first time we came in has been the same extremely high standard throughout the whole wedding process!

Jack and I and our families and friends could not recommend you more highly!! We can’t thank you enough for all that you did to make our day soo unbelievable, it was soo much fun you couldn’t even get us to leave! Haha! It was more than we ever imagined and that is because of you!

Thank you!!!!!
Love Mr and Mrs O’Shea

“…You always had my mind at ease…”

Kat, you are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! Throughout the whole process you have been completely accessible and your staff have always been hospitable towards my family when we came in for meals leading up to the wedding.

You always had my mind at ease and allowed us to make elaborate plans for the reception. We were both totally relaxed throughout the entire reception and ceremony and you and your staff had everything completely under control (including traffic jams on a perfect March day).

The lines of communication were always opened and emails and phone calls were always responded to promptly and professionally. You were always happy to give recommendations for local vendors/suppliers and were on hand to coordinate deliveries and bump ins and on the day preparations.

Our families, guests, bridal party and suppliers felt completely taken care of on the day. It is only 3 days since our weeding and we are still receiving rave reviews of the night and how easy going and relacing the vibe was due to the positive attitude of you and your staff. You were always on hand throughout the night to chat with guests and family members and ensured the Mike and I never went without having a drink and keeping hydrated on such a warm day/evening.

Mike and I are already planning our 1 year anniversary lunch and weekend away in Sorrento next year!!!!!!

Mike and Rachelle

“…an EXTRA BIG THANK YOU…”

“…a HUGE “THANK YOU”…”

Hi Kat,

Barry & I just wanted to give you a HUGE “THANK YOU”… for everything you did on Prue & Sean’s Wedding Day, especially the way you looked after the Bridal Party, (that didn’t go unnoticed), we were very impressed at how professional & attentive you were, it was a fantastic night that everyone will remember.

We had a sensational night !!!!!

Also a big shout out to all your staff who were very friendly & attentive to all our friends & family..

Thanks Heaps,

Deb Arnold – Mother

“…our day was perfect…”

Hi Kat,

Our champion videographer Glen from Directors Edge has posted our wedding video, we thought you might want to share on your Facebook page as we think it shows off the setting beautifully (and us too of course!!)

http://www.directorsedge.com.au/videos/karlie-jason-smiles-sorrento/

Just also wanted to thank you once again for your help with every aspect of the wedding. I know you hear this every day but our guests just can’t stop raving about the setting and the staff at All Smiles. We feel our day was perfect and you and the team were a massive part of that. Can’t wait to see you again soon!!

Big hugs,

Karlie and Jase

“…ALL SMILES is the place…”

Hey Kat,

Its been a few months now since our magical wedding at All Smiles, Sorrento, (last August in fact!!) but better late then never hey!!
Ben and I just want to say a massive thank you to you and all your amazing staff that made our special day so so wonderful. It was truly the BEST day ever and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We even got to have our dream of having the ceremony outside and it was awesome.
Thank you for making our little Brooklynn have the best time ever too and letting her follow you around all night.
From the first time we walked in to All Smiles, Sorrento and met you we knew immediately that this was exactly where we wanted to get married. We immediately felt like you were a long lost friend and we had been welcomed in to your home.

For anyone wanting the most perfect and laid back place to get married, with the most beautiful scenery ever for a wedding and a place where you can guarantee that everything will flow perfectly, ALL SMILES is the place.
With Kat and her amazing staff you will have nothing to worry about.
The food and drink flowed freely all night as we were told it would and there was plenty of it. All our guests commented on how much food, how great it all was and the variety etc.
No one went home hungry that’s for sure, just as Kat had promised us.
Also, everyone that you recommended to us, as in the photographer, hair and makeup, accommodation, celebrant, dj, limo etc were first class too.
Lisa (Emma’s mum), loved it all so much she wanted to get married again so she could have it at All Smiles.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for a day and night that we will never forget!!

Love Emma & Ben & your little shadow Brooklynn
xoxo

“…exceeded all our expectations…”

To dear Dean and Kat,

I am writing to express our overwhelming joy in our choice of All Smiles Sorrento as our wedding venue.

I would firstly like to start with the most important part of this email. It is to say thank you to the wonderful Kat. Without her, we would not have booked your venue. Her prompt replies to emails, her friendly down-to-earth attitude and her genuine care towards us did not go unnoticed. I know she probably gets emails like this all the time (or she should!) but we cannot express how much we appreciated everything Kat has done for us in the lead up to our wedding and on our wedding day. There were shots of peach schnapps lined up for the bridesmaids and I on arrival! Whenever our drinks were empty, Kat was there to fill it up. Whenever I needed the photographer, Kat went and found him. Not only did she assist us with anything we wanted, she did it with such a brilliant smile that we feel forever in her debt for making our magical night go so smoothly.

We are aware that there are over 200 plus weddings a year at All Smiles and even knowing these figures, we never once felt like another standard couple. Kat always made an effort to ask about my nana or my parents. She remembered personal little stories and it’s qualities like this that make her such a superstar at, not only her craft, but wonderful person too. All Smiles is blessed to have such a hard-working, dedicated, beautiful events manager to grace their business. We just hope that she gets compensated for all of her hard work as we feel that she may not ever sleep! She’s always on the go!

To the team who worked the evening of our wedding on December 20th 2013, you are phenomenal. They were absolutely amazing and exceeded all our expectations of what ‘wedding staff’ should be doing. They were attentive to all of our guests needs, especially to my parents and my husband and I. Their smiles and happy attitude made our wedding night run so smoothly.  They had a dance with us and many of our guests commented on how lovely it was to see the staff genuinely enjoying themselves too. Again, an absolute credit to All Smiles. You’ve done a wonderful job on hiring such happy, friendly staff. Please pass on our feedback because we feel, in the hospitality industry, praise is never given when due

The food was unbelievable. All of our guests spoke of how delicious the food was and how much food there was. This was a slight worry of ours having a cocktail wedding and there not being enough food.. little did I know that the food would still be coming out at 9.30pm followed by desserts! I could really go some more fish and chips right now….

The pack-up…… for us there was no pack up! We came back the next day to collect all of our belongings which had been boxed up by the wonderful team. This made the somewhat sad feeling of our wedding being over slightly easier. Another plus to our magical day.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for a truly magical venue. We are still on cloud nine and hope to never come down.

We look forward to seeing you all in the new year and wish you and your families a safe and happy 2014.

Georgie and Chris Mowbray

 

“…fun, casual but sophisticated…”

andrew and monicaOur wedding was last November and from the moment we set foot in All Smiles we knew this was where we wanted to get married. Kat and her staff were always so accommodating and polite as well as fun. nothing was too hard. Kat kept contact with me about how the day would run and for this the whole day was effortless. The biggest thing we had to worry about on the day is getting a serve of those amazing fish and chips, and even then it wasn’t a worry. The staff always made sure we were eating and had a drink in our hands.

We even told Kat about a certain drink we liked in casual conversation. Low and behold there it was waiting for us in the Bridal room, cheers Kat haha

So many of our guests commented on how our wedding was one of the best they had been to. Some comments included: “fun, casual but sophisticated”, “plenty of great food and good variety of drinks”, “was so easy to get around and chat with everyone unlike sit down weddings”.

Above all is the relationship that Kat shares with her clients. she makes you feel like you’ve known her forever and makes you feel that your wedding is the most special she has ever done.
Cheers girls for this memory of a lifetime

Andrew and Monica

 

“…there was no stress or worry…”

Our wedding day was just amazing, it went better then we could have ever imagined, and it is thanks to Kat and her amazing staff at All Smiles!11

From the first time we viewed All Smiles and meet Kat we knew this was the place for us to have our wedding,
and within 5 minutes we were ready to book. We were just hoping the date we wanted would be free as we knew this place was special and would have to be popular. Lucky enough for us the date we wanted was free and we were booked.

Kat always made us feel welcome every time we visited leading up to our wedding and nothing was ever too much trouble. She would always make time for us, and it always felt like we were catching up with a friend.

When our wedding day arrived there was no stress or worry for us as we knew we were in good hands with Kat and her Staff, they made us feel at ease and so happy on our wedding day. As the bride I had to keep pinching myself  that it was my wedding as i was so relaxed!

Since our wedding every time we catch up with family and friends they just rave on about our wedding and how it was one of the best they have been to. They just loved the location, all the delicious food,  the atmosphere, the friendliness of the staff and how well organized the night was.
(Even when the power went out during the reception many of our guests had no idea as Kat and her staff we running around in the background lighting candles and getting the generator cranking.) AMAZING!

We knew our wedding day would go quickly and it certainly did,we had the time of our lives and just wish we could do it all again at ALL SMILES!!!!

We just cant thank Kat and her staff enough
Candice and Steve Dawson

“…the food was outstanding!!…”

What can I say……Seriously the moment my partner Matt and I walked into the venue we new it was the venue for us.  It suited our cocktail theme and the views were amazing. jess and matt turner sorrento 2013

Once we decided to go ahead with the venue we would every now and then pop in for lunches and we were always looked after.

The lady we dealt with Kat was such a positive inspiration, she would always make up feel welcome, always up for a friendly chat and really looked after ourselves as well as our families. :)

The vibe we always got from the venue and the staff was just incredible, we had the best experience there ever. Always answering any questions we had and getting back to us ASAP.

The Food was outstanding!! Not only was there so much food on the wedding day but the varieties were amazing. All our friends and family did not go hungry and were all so happy with the food. We had also had lunch their numerous times and we always left feeling so satisfied.

The wedding day was truly magical and All Smiles really did make us all feel so comfortable and so friendly to everyone. They set up the venue with the decorations I gave them with photo collages etc and it looked perfect.

The day after our wedding Matt and I went back to the venue to collect things we had left at the venue and they were more then happy to help. I felt like we could talk for hours catching up on the amazing wedding night we had before.

Everything went so well, I can’t think of anything for them to improve in.

The weather on our wedding day wasn’t the best, however the decision was made to have it outside as it’s something Matt & I both wanted. So glad we did as the photos look amazing.

We will be looking forward to always going back there and eating lunch for our anniversaries.

I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all the staff at all smiles for making our wedding run so smoothly and treating us like friends rather then clients.

Another HUGE thank you to KAT for always being herself and an amazing person who helped Matt and I with everything. Shes wonderful!!!

To all the brides and grooms out there I would HIGHLY recommend ALL SMILES 4 your WEDDING DAY!!!

Jess & Matt Turner

“…what a great night…”

 What a great night!  You guys were amazing!  Our guests are still talking about the service.

Every aspect from the decor to the food and drink was perfect. Iphone pics date ending 9th November 670

 Kat, we could not have hoped for a better team of people to look after us.  I would have no hesitation recommending you guys to anyone who wants a better than average wedding!

 Love David and Sviatlana xo

“…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.

Kirsty

“…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.

If you are interested, Shannon & Christine from Sorrento Weddings have placed many great photographs onto their blog at the following address http://www.melbourneweddings.net.au/2013/09/heidi-terry-wedding-at-all-smiles-sorrento/

Cheers,

“…I immediately felt comfortable…”

First of all a Massive Thank you to Kat and all the staff at All Smiles Sorrento!!bride and bridesmaids

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.

Kind regards,

Ryan and Erica Evans

 

the allsmiles beach small “…We could not have picked a better venue…”

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 athe front of all smiles smallll 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…”

Hi Kat,

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

…absolutely amazing…

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…”

"...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!”

"...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…

...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…”

"...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!

Cheers, Lee

“…we knew it would be the perfect place…:

"...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…”

"...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!”

"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.

THANKYOU

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

“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.

“It was absolutely the best day of my life!!”

"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.

Warm regards,
Catherine Hayden

“amazing Food, venue and the staff”

“nothing but great reports from all of our guests”

"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.

Thanks again,
Nat & Ryan

“All Smiles is THE best venue ever”

"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”

"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”

Good Morning

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.

Regards
Judy

“When I first walked in I nearly cried at how beautiful the place looked”

"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!”

"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!

Thanks
Karinda & Heath xxx

“people haven’t stopped raving about the food”

"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 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!”

"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”

"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!

Thanks again,
Yasmeen and Jamie McGilp

“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.

Thankyou again,

Kind regards,
Allana Green

"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.

Well done

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.

Thanks again

"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!!

Warm regards,

Jessie Curtis-Griffiths

“YUMMMM!!”

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!!

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”

"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”

"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
