"Thank you so much, the night was absolutely perfect"

JESS & DEAN

Thank you so much, the night was absolutely perfect. We can't thank you and the Showtime team enough!

Guests are still talking about our wedding and have said it was the best wedding they have ever attended!! Brilliant food and brilliant venue!

Please pass that on, and that the service was brilliant as well! Such a fun filled night.

Thanks again.

"You made us feel like celebrities for the day and treated all our guests with 5 star service"

KATHERINE & DENNIS

“We want to send a BIGGGGGGGGGGG THANKYOU to you all, for making our wedding day the most amazing day ever!! (Besides our daughter's birth :)

You made us feel like celebrities for the day and treated all our guests with 5 star service, making them feel important for every single moment of the day. The waitress's and waiters were so attentive, caring and GENUINE! We really felt the warmth and honest hospitality from everyone on the night.

The food was to die for! The service was amazing and the venue was just breath taking, I could not stop scanning my eyes over the room, because I was just in love with the way in turned out, it was like we were indoors but under a mystical sky with all the fairy lights and beautiful green foliage all around the room.

Our wedding planner no matter how many questions I had and how many changes I made, was so easy to deal with and understanding of a brides needs! And to think you are planning multiple weddings with multiple BRIDES, WOW, seriously good on you! That is a special talent!

 EVERYONE at our wedding has messaged and called us to say that is the best wedding they have ever been to, the location, the service, the music, the entertainment! Everybody had the best night! Honestly a big heartfelt thank you! I wish we could do it all again.”

Lots of Love xxxxx

" We felt like celebrities holding a function at a world-class venue"

HAYLEY & MARK 

“Just wanted to say a gigantic THANK YOU for the amazing day and night we had. 

We honestly could not be happier with our night spent with you and your team.  We felt like celebrities holding a function at a world-class venue with everything running perfectly.  All of the feedback from our family and friends has been 100% positive with everyone raving about the food, the service and the friendliness of the staff.  There was never an empty glass which really makes a difference when all the guests feel so welcome to have a good time and enjoy the night. 

I want to thank you personally for working with us in the lead up and for arranging everything with our external parties too.  I have nothing but praise and appreciation for your work with us.  On a day that we will remember forever, I cannot speak highly enough of the job you did in making our special day just perfect.

"You were a true professional from start to end"

HOLLY & GAVIN 

“We  really do feel that our wedding was one of the best days of our lives. And one of the main contributors to ensuring the day was truly special and memorable was you. We would love to say a huge thank-you to you for all your time and tremendous effort to ensuring that everything was perfect for us. We really appreciated how meticulous you were with our wants and needs. It was such a delight working with you. You were a true professional from start to end and it was such a relief to know that we didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day.

We would also love for you to pass on our thanks to the operations team who worked on the night of our wedding. Every person we encountered were extremely polite, upbeat and helpful. All of our guests were impressed by the high level of service on the evening. Could you also send through compliments to the chef. The food was amazing and our friends and family cannot stop talking about each dish. Each was beautifully presented, delicious and most importantly very filling.

Showtime Events Centre was the perfect venue for our wedding. The place is absolutely amazing but it was certainly you and your team that make the place truly shine. We thank you whole heartedly for making our dream wedding a wonderful reality. We will always speak and think highly of the venue and you.”

"We had an absolutely amazing time and Showtime certainly exceeded our expectations."

KAREN & PETER 

“Thank you to the Showtime team from the bottom of our hearts for what was one hell of a wedding! We had an absolutely amazing time and Showtime certainly exceeded our expectations.

Can I just say that coming from European backgrounds we were waiting on comments of dissatisfaction from certain guests, however we received nothing but praise and it was all thanks to you guys! A big shout out and thanks to all the staff at Showtime for their A grade service.

All of our guests were praising the staff who constantly checked in with them and attended to them without having to be prompted to. The food was flawless and we received comments to say it was the best reception food they have ever tasted to date! So well done on both ends, us for choosing the menu and the chefs for a great job!

Without doubt we would highly recommend Showtime to our friends and family who plan their next function.” 

"We will certainly be recommending Showtime as a venue to anybody we come across looking for a venue"

SAMANTHA & MARK  

"We would like to thank you for your organisation of our wedding reception at Showtime Events and also acknowledge your fantastic customer service which was second to none.

Right from the initial meeting we had all the way through the planning process your customer relations was of the highest standard, we really thought that this should be acknowledged and we hope that your management appreciate what a great job you are doing.

We would also like to acknowledge your staff for their work they did for us on the evening. It was absolutely fantastic catering to our needs and more importantly made sure the night was implemented perfectly without any issues.

We will certainly be recommending Showtime as a venue to anybody we come across looking for a venue. Each and every guest we have spoken to thoroughly enjoyed the evening and could not knock anything from the venue, atmosphere, food & drinks and even the service of your waiter staff.

Again we thank you very much and we hope we will be attending a function at Showtime again very soon."

MIRNA & JASON  

"We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and team – everyone was incredible!  All our guests have raved about the service and the food, it was just impeccable!  It absolutely exceeded our expectation, we couldn't have asked for anything else  

Thank you again for everything, and especially all your help to the lead up of the day."

"The entire Showtime team really did make our day."

PAIGE & DAVID

"I don't know where to start, the entire Showtime team really did make our day. From our first conversation on the phone to the wedding reception you have been phenomenal.  I cannot fault anything. You handled everything with such care and attention to detail. We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and cannot put into words truly how much that night meant to us. You have given us memories that we will cherish forever! Yourself and Brad are truly rare gems and Showtime is very lucky to have you! The venue was stunning, the food was spectacular and those cocktails!!! What a surprise and how yum!! 

Guests have not stopped raving about the venue and the event as a whole. We keep saying how we want to do it all over again! We will miss you all! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!" 

"The food was extraordinary, especially serving over 180 guests"

CHAUNTEL & NICK 

"We chose Showtime because of the unique space it provided.... It had a comfortable party feel and a wow factor!

Hayley was excellent with asking questions to fulfil our needs and wants for our special day. She also thought outside the box to accommodate us... especially the fireworks that Nick arranged with Hayley!

The wait staff and service was 100% on the day. The food was extraordinary, especially serving over 180 guests - to get this out in a timely manner with food tasting fantastic, it is a credit to the team at Showtime.

We would recommend Showtime to anyone who wants awesome service,a friendly accommodating team and a unique space that wowed all of our guests :)

Thanks guys, you were absolutely amazing!"

"can't thank showtime enough for helping to make it all so perfect."

NATALIE & AARON 

"We had the most amazing day and can't thank showtime enough for helping to make it all so perfect. 

Aaron and I can not talk highly enough of the venue from the food to the absolute professionalism of Brad and all the staff that worked on the night and to you for making all our planning such an easy process. Our family and friends were in complete awe of the venue and thoroughly enjoyed the night. 

Hope you are well and thank you again on behalf of Aaron and I." 

 

"Our day completely surpassed all of our expectations"

REBECCA & SHAUN 

"...Thank you again for everything! Our day completely surpassed all of our expectations and that was in big part thanks to you and your team!

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone in the future for any event! So many of our guests complimented on the venue, the food, the staff - most of them saying it was the best wedding venue they've been to. A few of the guests commented on how they didn't have to wait even a minute for a drink or service because the staff we so attentive and friendly which was fantastic to hear. 

As for Shaun and I - we couldn't have been happier - from the beginning we wanted a venue that was not too 'reception centre' that could cater for our large numbers and our special requirements. Showtime completely fit everything we were looking for - waterside, convenient location, awesome restaurant quality food, easy staff to deal with and something that would fit within our budget. You in particular have been so accomodating right from our initial contact up till now.

Thanks again!"

"Loved our experience, so happy we chose you guys."

MICHELLE & STEFAN 

"Our guests and ourselves think it was the best wedding ever! Food, drinks, service, layout and ambiance was impeccable.

Having such a capable coordinator meant we were less stressed than a lot of other people getting married- many of our friends commented on this!

A lot of our guests have commented on the amazing service they received and I think this was a large contributor to people having such a great night. No request was too onerous, and it was completed within record speed.
 

Keep it up, as fantastic service is a key differentiator when making most decisions in life, including choosing a place to celebrate such a big day.  Loved our experience, so happy we chose you guys. You've got one of the best venues in Melbourne and if you keep the high quality of the food, service and packages up, you should be booking multiple events every week of the year!

I think our wedding set the bar for a LOT of people, and there are a few engaged couples who attended our wedding who were probably kicking themselves for not picking Showtime!"

"Wow! What a wedding venue… "

MARY ROSE & DAMIAN 

"Wow! What a wedding venue… Thank you very much for an absolute fabulous wedding night.

Hayley, from the beginning you were very nice to deal with, you had great advice and were always willing to help us with anything we needed. Your attention to detail was perfect, your follow-up was excellent and your guidance was impeccable. 

We received such great feedback about your reception. The staff did a great job – they all had a friendly approach and offered great service to all our guests! The food was amazing!! It was just the perfect night!

You have a great venue and a great team – We are so glad and grateful we had our wedding at Showtime!!
We would highly recommend your venue to our family and friends!!

Thank you, again!"

"So well organised and executed but then SO MUCH FUN!"

ADEN & COURTNEY 

"We just wanted to thank you and your team once again, we couldn’t have imagined in our wildest dreams for a wedding reception to be firstly, so well organised and executed but then SO MUCH FUN! I can’t tell you (literally) how many people have come up to us and told us how much they loved the place, the atmosphere was amazing, the food was simply exquisite and your team was absolute gold! It fitted us perfectly and it just really made our day. We actually had a couple of younger friends that had never been to a wedding before and their parents had to tell them to lower their expectations for the next one they go to because they’re never this much fun! HAHA!!

Once again, thank you very much and if you could pass on our thanks to your team it would be very much appreciated."

 

"Our day was absolutely PERFECT, and Showtime well exceeded our expectations. "

MANDY & JOSS 

"Thank you so much to the team at Showtime! Our day was absolutely PERFECT, and Showtime well exceeded our expectations. Everyone went above and beyond for us, and made us feel so special. From going out of your way purchasing aloe-vera for us, to the awesomely timed and on cue spontanious Red Bull delivery mid way through Joss's speech about my Red Bull addiction. All the staff were so on the ball, on time and attentive, even after you left.
We were so lucky, that not one single thing went wrong and even the Melbourne weather turned it on for us.


Our guests cannot stop raving about the venue & the service. They were all amazed at the quick service for food and drinks, how attentive the staff are, and at how great the meals were. (Where can i get more of this Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwich from....that ALONE is worth having another event at Showtime lol)

In all honestly, we really cannot thank you and the team enough, it really finished off our perfect day, in the best way possible. I really wish we could re-live it all over again and again! We will definitely be recommending Showtime to anyone and everyone, as will our guests i think! :)

It was such a pleasure, thank you for all your personal time and help with making our dream day become our reality."

"All the attention to detail, not only on the night but in planning this wedding assisted to make my job easier"

TANIA & JOSH 

"Just wanted to send you an email to thank you for helping make our wedding such a memorable night. All the attention to detail, not only on the night but in planning this wedding assisted to make my job easier, we are very appreciative for your efforts in all of this.  All the staff on the night were so attentive to us and our guests, Alistair, Brad and Jeremy and of course yourself made our night as smooth and enjoyable as possible, it really was everything that we could have ever hoped for and more.

We really did have the best night and our guests can't stop talking about how impressed they were with the venue and how much fun they had."

"Your assistance (and patience) in the lead up was fabulous and the team on the night was just amazing."

MARY & PAT 

"Pat and I just wanted to say thank you so much for our wedding on Sunday!  The night was spectacular and exactly what we had been hoping for.

Your assistance (and patience) in the lead up was fabulous and the team on the night was just amazing. The levels of service and quality of the food was unparalleled. Also, a special thanks to Alaistair, who was so good with us throughout the day and evening.

All our guests have been talking about it, telling us how amazing the venue was, how good the food was and how they had such a great time!

HANNAH & NICK 

"On behalf of Nick and myself I just wanted to thank you for putting on such an incredible night for us on Friday - there are no words to describe how happy we are with absolutely everything that you and your team provided from start to finish it was nothing short of perfect! Every one of our guests had a sensational night and the feedback we have received have all been glowing reports on the service, food and how amazing the venue looked! We cannot recommend you and Showtime highly enough to all our family and friends.

We lived a real life fairytale and cannot wipe the smiles off our faces!"

"Guests have not stopped saying how great the night was and how amazing Showtime was! "

DANIELLE & FRANKIE

"I want to start by saying thank you so much for all your help and everything you did for Frank and I, to help make it the wonderful night it was!! We could not be happier with how the night turned out and appreciate all of you at Showtime so much!

Guests have not stopped saying how great the night was and how amazing Showtime was! And we can not agree more! The food, the service, the venue, everything was perfect.

The attention to detail and care that you took to make sure our night ran smoothly is very much appreciated, and leaves you way above most reception centers!!"

"On our wedding day the venue was astonishingly beautiful! "

JOE & JAESEL 

"Myself and Jaesel would like to thank you for your effort, help, professionalism and service for our wedding day.

On our wedding day the venue was astonishingly beautiful! How we envisioned it and then some…
The food was spectacular, everyone we have spoken to raved on about the food!
(A few guests even half halved their food so they could taste both plates)
Our guests also spoke very highly of the service provided and how organised the reception was.
Myself and Jaesel couldn’t of been looked after any better in the lead up and on our day.

Hayley you were an absolute pleasure to deal with, your constant communication, follow ups, recommendations and updates in the lead up to our wedding day was so helpful and nothing short of amazing.
Very early on you gave us confidence you shall handle, co-ordinate our wedding reception and suppliers very successfully and to be honest we believe you knocked it out of the park! Thanks for the wedding card as well.

Every element of our reception felt first class and we are proud we did it at such a venue which we’re sure is going to be (already is in our opinion) one of the most amazing venue’s in Victoria.

Thank you once again!"

"The food and service on the night was fantastic"

MONICA & BEN 

"We would like to thank you and the team at Showtime for helping make our wedding reception so amazing!  We had a great time, the food and service on the night was fantastic and you made everything run so smoothly.  We have received a lot of great feedback from our guests about the venue, staff and food."

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"

CLARE & CHRIS

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We had the most incredible wedding day and a lot of that came down to you.  From our first meeting with Hayley we knew everything would run smoothly.  Hayley was so calm and in control and seemed to understand what we were after which put our minds at ease.

Seeing the venue for the first time was one of my most memorable moments - it almost brought me to tears.  It was just stunning! Everything came together so well and we could not have asked for anything more.  Not one detail was overlooked.  Our guests loved the wedding with so many comments on how awesome the room looked, the fantastic staff and the amazing food. We agree 100%.

We truly appreciate everything you did to make such an important moment in our lives so unforgettable...If only we could do it again!"

"The word magic has been used several times!"

REBEKAH & REECE 

"The feedback I have had from the night is just that it was magical and no one wanted to go back to their real lives after! The word magic has been used several times! Also that the room was 'overflowing with love', thank you so much for helping us achieve this atmosphere! We loved being greeted by your friendly faces and welcome drinks straight from the boat and it was fantastic to have such a wonderful team by our side for the night, (getting teary thinking about it!) Please thank Hayley for being SO patient and hard working and sweet throughout the process, she is a gem.

The staff were all incredibly attentive and I have had praise for you and Sean from the MC, and bridesmaids. I think it was because you made everyone feel so special and were so flexible and thoughtful with everyone's needs. The bridal suite was a complete hit also. No one had seen one before let alone one so beautifully laid out. 

Honestly I could go on but have limited time as we are still away on our honeymoon. You guys are fabulous, the food was raved about, the room looked stunning and I could not have possibly been happier. I will recommend you from the hilltops.

Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts - you do not get service like yours these days, so glad we found you!!”
