A collection of the kind words shared by some of our beautiful couples

Our wedding was everything we imagined and more. Ancora was just the most perfect venue. The unique waterfront view was absolutely picture perfect.

The whole team were a dream to work with and made the planning experience easy. The food was delicious and none of our guests were left hungry! The team on the night made sure everything was perfect, you can tell they are definitely experienced with weddings. They made us so relaxed and we were able to really sit back and enjoy the night with no worries. Have nothing but praise for the amazing team from Ancora and their spectacular venue!

"We had our wedding with you guys just before everything got crazy and I just want to say a massive thank you because it honestly was the best day of our lives and the entire team made it a seamless stress free day!"

The food was out of this world and every guest commented on how amazing it was, the service and venue were unsurpassed! I would definitely recommend to anyone who wanted to get married in the Tweed region!

Thanks again for the most unbelievable wedding day!

As a wedding photographer I go to lots of venues, Ancora is without doubt one of the best in my area. It has a beautiful modern look and the staff are a so helpful + friendly.

My daughter and now son-in-law got married on the weekend and after the trials and tribulations of Covid, arriving at Ancora was like entering another world! The staff were warm, friendly, helpful yet non intrusive. The coordinator regularly checked in to see if everything was ok and was on hand all evening to help. The food was to die for! Fabulous, tasty, beautifully served and there was plenty for everyone. Thank you all for making this day a lifetime memory full of joy.

Everything we could have asked for in a wedding venue. The food was amazing!!! The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and all of our guests had a fabulous time. Would definitely recommend.

Friendly service, beautiful food (including salt and pepper squid to die for) and very timely meal service with drink top-ups as required. They also did very well with lactose-free alternatives. Ancora helped make this wedding such a delightful evening.

“The whole team at Ancora did an amazing job! They were very accommodating and helpful when we had to move our wedding date due to restrictions and made our reception run so smoothly. The food was insane – everyone was raving about the quality and variety on the banquet menu and there was more than enough for all of our guests!”

Top location for small to medium weddings/bdays/events. My wife and I highly recommend this venue as the food selection at the wedding we attended was 6 stars along with the selection of beverages. With the venue right on the water the views were amazing and the sea breeze that blew through kept everyone nice and cool. The bathrooms facilities were a good size (both male and female) and were kept in good clean condition. There was a good amount of onsite parking but we recommend staying local and Uber or taxi in.

From the moment I walked into the venue to check it out I knew it was the one. It had the perfect balance with the grassed area outside for the ceremony so that no one had to travel through to the reception with the balcony by the water for those who wanted to chat/ get away from the band and then of course the stunning inside for those who wanted to dance the night away. The banquet food was absolutely amazing, with everyone too full to finish! The service was terrific, I had someone behind me ready to top up my glass whenever I was getting low.

Thank you for giving us the perfect venue for our wedding day!

We are so ecstatic with the day, down to the very last detail. Thank you for your professionalism, suggestions and reassurance throughout our process – and of course for treating our wedding as if it were unique. A number of our guests and my family who were involved in the setup complimented the staff – big thank you to Millie and the on-day team.

Elizabeth, April 2019

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to Ancora Weddings for making our day so unbelievably perfect. This stunning venue teamed with outrageously delicious food and wine make this the ultimate wedding venue. What really made our day so special was the staff at Ancora. They are such a wonderful, professional and caring crew who went above and beyond to make our day so special. I wish we could relive it everyday!

Chloe, March 2019

The staff at Ancora were so professional, accommodating and beyond lovely. From the first email to the goodbyes the night at the wedding, every staff member involved was great. Whoever is in charge of the menu is amazing and is a true talent. All of our guests were so impressed with the standard of food and Tyrone and myself were so impressed with the variety we had to choose from. I wish our reception never finished it was just a blast. A benefit of having a cocktail wedding was the dance floor started early in the night and did not stop. It was a truly unforgettable day with all of most loved.

Kellie, March 2019

Ancora did such an amazing job – I have been raving about them and their team ever since! Our reception ran so smoothly and I kept looking around in awe of how beautiful it looked. The staff were absolutely amazing and I felt so well looked after on the night, they really paid attention to the little things. They didn’t approach me with any issues or questions on the night (I was blissfully unaware!) and they really went out of their way to make sure it was a fun, relaxing and stress-free night for Ethan and I. And the food! Oh my goodness. The delicious catering by Taverna had to be one of the highlights for sure.

Jocelyn, September 2018

After visiting Ancora at the Tweed Wedding Trail at the beginning of the year we absolutely fell in love. We wanted an outdoor ceremony and came across a beautiful park at the Point Danger Lookout. The park was perfectly named ‘Lovers Rock Park’ and it was stunning!

My husband and I were married in August and had our reception at Ancora. We loved that we could personalise our wedding to suit our theme – simple but elegant. The venue looked so beautiful at night with the fairy lit tree and with the extra fairy lights that we added on the balcony. The food was amazing! Prior to booking Ancora, we checked out Taverna – their sister restaurant in Kingscliff which serves a ‘chefs table’ menu similar to that served on our wedding night at Ancora. The food definitely won us over making us book the very next day! There was plenty of it and our guests went home with very happy tummies. If you’re looking for a romantic, open, waterfront venue, we would recommend Ancora.

One of our favourite moments of the day was sitting at the Reception together at the bridal table and looking over the Reception there was so much happiness in the air with all our guests faces filled with joy, the room was lit with candlelight and was more than we ever could have imagined and we were so happy that the dream day we had hoped for had all come together and we were married! I remember we looked at each over and just said “this is so perfect!” It was such a magical moment to be able to sit back and take it all in as Husband and Wife.
