Wedding and events must be discussed and booked via email. No phone calls will be accepted. This is to ensure all parties have a written understanding of event requirements and agreements.

3. Cancellation and Refund Policy

  1. If you wish to cancel your booking

No refunds are offered for cancellations due to wet weather.
Should you wish to cancel your wedding or event for another reason, including in relation to Covid-19, the following cancellation policy applies:

Outside 28 days from your wedding or event:
If you wish to cancel, we will issue a full refund minus a $10 service fee, plus costs of any speciality items already purchased for your individual event.

Between 14 to 27 days from your wedding or event:
If you wish to cancel, 50% of your pre-payment is forfeited. We will refund the amount for any unused alcohol/soft drink purchases.

Within 14 days of your wedding or event:
100% of your wedding or event pre-payment is forfeited. We will refund the amount paid for any unused alcohol/soft drink purchases. This is because our catering supplies are ordered in from the mainland via our fortnightly freight ship and may spoil if not used. We also may have turned away other wedding or event bookings order to confirm your particular time and date.
