The event was booked prior to Covid but we were always assured we could transfer dates etc if needed. The Sharks kept in touch with us even though Chloe wasn't working for a period of time due to Covid. We always felt we were being looked after and nothing was a problem if we needed to postpone for any reason. On the day we were allowed to come in and decorate the event, everyone was extremely helpful and the day ran very smoothly thanks to Chole and The Sharks team. On the night everyone raved about the amazing food and service. All the bar/waitress staff were so lovely, but we would like to mention Cam, the bar manager & Luana for their outstanding service. Our wedding went off without a hitch, the staff were so professional and also so friendly, they helped make a perfect day. We can't speak highly enough of the whole team.

On behalf of The MBA Partnership Managing Director and Leadership Team, I want to thank you and the Sharks Events Team for your hospitality last week. Your engagement from the beginning has been excellent. You listened to our requirements, highlighted options and ensured everything was prepared on the day. Your Meeting Room was perfect for our requirements. The Click Share technology was simple and easy to use. The group enjoyed their lunches with no one complaining of being hungry. Everyone we met on the day was extremely friendly and helpful. We look to support local businesses and we thank you for supporting our day to be a success!
