Everything at the Skylark is top notch. They made our wedding so beautiful! The staff went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. Five stars doesn't do it justice.Sent on 02/05/2018

We had our wedding reception at the Skylark last October. One of the best decisions I made for our wedding. It was perfect. Our guests were absolutely blown away by the views, the food and service (which some could argue was too good), our guests have made comments that it was the “best night of their lives” and “how could any other couple top that for a wedding” and that everything was just so good. Which is so nice to hear. It was a destination wedding too so everything was planned from Sydney. Christine was extremely helpful and lovely to deal with during the entire process, as was Charles who we also worked with as we got closer to our wedding.Sent on 01/28/2018
I was so worried that the venue wasn’t going to be as nice in person as it was in photos and videos I’d looked at. I was so wrong. It was the perfect spot and even nicer in person. Don’t be fooled by the subtle/non grand entrance like I first was, just as Christine said, it really does add impact the the view. Would definitely recommend having cocktail hour on the roof if you host your wedding here. We’re planning to be back for our one year anniversary this October. Can’t wait!!
I didn’t get a chance to try all of the food myself because I didn’t want to bloat in my tight dress haha so hopefully I can this time.
Thanks so much for being apart of our special day!!
