The Lords Wedding – October 2016
My newly husband and I had our wedding reception at the The River Deck and we highly recommend it to anyone considering tying the knot in the Noosa area.
I fell in love with the location of the restaurant and the drop dead gorgeous draping chandelier set up of the venue. In the lead up to the day Sue the owner/wedding coordinator was unbelievably helpful, honest and highly reliable.
She is so committed to her restaurant and her passion for weddings is above and beyond.
If you want someone who knows exactly what your guests want, someone to guide you to make all the right choices (because wedding planning decision making is hard) Sue is the lady!
On the night of our wedding our guests were complimenting us on Sue’s service and how highly professional her staff were.The service given to each and every guest was outstanding and the food was raved and raved about.
Sue has an art to perfectionism. She’s very upfront, has a heart of gold and is absolutely hilariously funny. People love her quirky ways!
This is the best place for a wedding reception!
Thank you to The River Deck staff xx

Thanks from Samantha and Rohan Gearing – 9 September 2016
Thank you to Sue and the wonderful team for helping us achieve a fabulous and relaxed wedding day.
She suggested the idea of the boat cruise down the river (Noosa Ferry) as part of the afternoon which was a highlight of the afternoon.
The canapés served on the boat was delicious, as was the remainder of the food for the night. Sue ensured the night went seamlessly and also gave me plenty of other tips for planning a wedding (which was great as I didn’t really know what I was doing).
Sue also gave us a number of other contacts including first class functions who we used for flowers and decorating.
Thanks Sue for helping us make such a magical night for our guests.

A week has passed since the big day and the dust has settled and we are now back to work . This has given us time to reflect .
As Kelly’s parents we just wish to complement you and your staff on how the whole event went. Everything went perfectly and according to plan even the weather.
Relatives and friends are still talking about the food, it was just sensational. The service was first class from start to finish (including the ferry trip).
As we are regular visitors to Noosa (3-4 times a year) The River Deck will be a regular dinning venue for us into the future.
I know that the newlyweds Kelly and Grant Redfern would agree with these sentiments.
Once again Thank You.
Regards Bob & Lyn Farrand

Thank you for being so generous with your time whenever we come up to Noosa.
For bringing the canapés to the boat so we can have something to eat. For meeting us with the umbrella just as it started to rain, and a scarf to keep me warm as we got out of the rain.
Thank you as well to the River Deck staff who were equally attentive without getting in the way. The food was just delicious from the canapés to the mains.
What we had was a nice, intimate reception made possible by the River Deck Restaurant!
Our sincerest thanks! Mark & Mailes

From Amy & Jim (Daniel) Williams – October 2015
When Jim first met Amy in primary school she says she wore braces on her teeth, had a cast on her arm and a long plait. After finding each other 10 years later having attended different high schools the romance has just blossomed.
Jim proposed on bended knee on their kitchen after asking Amy’s mother for her blessing and Amy thought it was a joke. Thankfully she said an ecstatic YES!
Obvoiusly on a beautiful day in mid October this lovely couple held their nuptuals at the Helipad on the Noosa Marina.
Jim used his trade mark humour to lovingly point out what he loved most about his beautiful bride Amy. He said at the end I love everything about her equally, because its the whole package I fell in love with.
Amy wore a figure hugging wedding dress and the 3 beautiful bridesmaids wore pale pink full length gowns.

Marriage ceremony was held on the helipad in Noosa Marina followed our wedding reception at the Riverdeck Restaurant. Loved the room decorations with black chair sashes and splashes of red and orange by the way of gerberas in the table decorations.
The naked cake show here was from The Cupcake Teahouse. Loved our Wedding Day thanks to the help from Sue Baxby and the staff at the River Deck who made our reception flow without any stress.
Ashlie & Matt Oke Wedding – October 2015
A lot of magic happened on Matt and Ashlie’s wedding day.
These two very genuine souls joined their lives together with such a depth that is revealed in the subtle looks they shared throughout their ceremony and the laughter that punctuated their entire day.

From Rebecca and Tony – September 2015
How they met. British born Brisbane based girl Rebecca house sits in Coolum with a girlfriend. Out on a walk one evening somehow loses one another. Meanwhile Tony pops out to his local shop to grab a snack and the pair meet and strike up a conversation…
Aware of something exciting but intangible was hanging in the air the rest became their own history as both did what was needed to bring themselves to their fantastic wedding day.
From Roz and Ricky Hazelton – August 2015
It was a pleasure to help you arrange your special day.
No, no thank you Sue. You and your team have been nothing short of amazing for our whole journey. You have no idea how all your little comments helped me feel so at home and relaxed.
- Put your flowers down to your belly button
- No, just relax now and take a moment to eat and drink before you go into the reception
- No its fine I will carry your train the whole way
You had a solution for everything. I absolutely love you. If you find out who that bride was that didn’t give you 100% let me now, I’ll sort her out.
Lots of love Roz Hazelton

Dear Sue, Michael & the extraordinary wonderful team at the River Deck Restaurant
Gavin & I would like express our sincere thanks for your exceptional kind hospitality and professional service during our wedding reception on Saturday 6 June 2015.
The whole night superceded all my expectations and it is hard to find words worthy enough to express our gratitude. We could find nothing to fault, the presentation of the venue was manicured with the finest attention to detail (nothing was out of place!), and blew my mind when I entered on the night.
We are constantly receiving compliments from our family & friends on how “stunning” the venue looked and I had no hesitation in advising it was Sue and her team who pulled it all together on the day! It was truly beautiful – THANK YOU!
The food, WOW! It was just divine and again, complimented hugely by all our guests. Thank you to the Chef’s for being able to whip up some last minute vegetarian meals fot the handful who needed it – much appreciated! All meals came out on time, cooked to perfection and before I could blink an eye, tables were cleared and drinks topped up without haste! 5 Star Service ALL NIGHT!
Sue to you personally, thank you for all your assistance in helping me plan our day/night, it was a lifeline! I could not have coped without your support and guidance. You are a true professional and I will ensure to recommend you and your services to any brides whom may be on the outlook for a venue option and wedding co-ordinator!
Thank you very, very much for making Saturday night such a memorable night for not only Gavin & I but for all our closest friends and family whom attended our reception!
Please do not hesitate to use the picture or this email for any reference, testimonials etc.
Lots of love from the new Mr & Mrs Gavin and Breanna Neilson
