Hi Graham and Sky High Team !!!

Just a quick thankyou for a great event. There were many comments from guests on how beautiful the venue was. The picturesque garden ceremony set the tone for the rest of day which went flawlessly from start to end.

That day was up there as one of the three best days of my life and Raeleen was involved in each of these days:

My smart and beautiful daughter Ashlee being born

My beautiful green eyed son with the golden heart being born

My wedding day to my partner of 35 years that brought into the world the two bundles of joy

Thank you again from both of us for sharing the moment with us and putting together the perfect event !!!

Raeleen and Frank Krivaci !!!

Subject: Laura and Daniels Wedding 21st March

Dear Graham and Chris,

We want to thank you for all your help in the organisation of Laura and Daniels wedding celebration last Friday. Unfortunately on the day the weather was against them having the ceremony outside but the speed with which ' Plan B ' was put into place was most impressive and very much appreciated. As a second option,an inside ceremony with that amazing view as a backdrop is pretty special!

Please pass along our thanks to all your very friendly and helpful staff who were there on the night. They all did a fantastic job! Also to your kitchen staff-the food was delicious and enjoyed by all.

Once again thank you so much for helping to make Laura and Daniels day everything they were hoping for. We would certainly recommend Skyhigh as a venue for a wedding or other event to anyone looking for a special place to celebrate.

Yours sincerely

Helen and Keith Fordham

Subject: Our amazing wedding!


Hi Graham and Chris!

It's been over a month since my wonderful wedding day - time has flown! I'm sorry I haven't sent this email earlier - what with the honeymoon, getting back to work and moving house we've been very busy!


I'd just really like to say on behalf of Jeremy and myself how thankful we are for everyone at Sky High and the effort that was put into making our big day so fabulous. So many of our guests have told us how much they loved the venue and the whole day - some have even said it was the best wedding they've been to!


I was so relaxed and stress-free in the lead up to the day, and I think that was partly because I knew I could rely on you guys to have everything under control, which you most certainly did. The ceremony was set up beautifully and it was so thoughtful on a hot day to set up the cold water and glasses for our guests. 


The reception was amazing, the food was delicious, everything ran perfectly and we just had the most perfect day. The photos look beautiful too - so I'll be sure to send some your way when they are ready!


Thanks again,

Laura and Jeremy

Hi Graham!

Thank you so much for all your help!  You were just wonderful to work with & very efficient.  We were also very impressed with how you decorated the room - the blue sashes looked wonderful & the candles around the bridal table were amazing!

Many people commented to me how exceptional your staff were :-)  We all gave them a round of applause at the end of the night as they were just so good.

We will certainly recommend you to everyone for a wedding function :-)

Hi Graham, Chris and sky high function staff, 

Just wanted to pass on our thanks on behalf of the bridal party and families of the bride and groom for helping to make Rachel and Toby's special day amazing. Not even the awful weather could dampen Rachel's excitement once we stepped out of the limo and I believe Graham's enthusiasm played a big part in that. 

Thank you also for allowing and assisting me with my maid of honour 'speech', it was very well received. 

All in all, the night was completely fabulous, the food delicious and superbly presented and the staff warm and friendly. It truly was an unforgettable night.

Thank you for everything, 

Nicci xx

Hi Graham & Chris

We just wanted to thank you so so so much for everything you did for us in the lead up to our big day and the day itself!
You both were amazing and helped us with everything you could.

We would of sent an email months ago, but we've been meaning to come up to Sky High so we thought we would thank you in person, but we keep having things on and haven't been up there yet! So we thought we should let you know how grateful we are for everything you both did :)

I've attached a photo that has Graham in it, while I'm balling my eyes out (it didn't hit me that I was actually finally getting married, until I stepped out of the limo, and then the tears hardly stopped until the ceremony was over).

Thank you both again, and all of your staff, for making our day everything we dreamt of (after planning it for 4 years).

Mr & Mrs Whitehead :)

Hi Chris and Graham,

On behalf of Sophie & I we would like to say thank you very much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. Since the day we booked with you guys, you have been fantastic in organizing everything. We didn't have to think of anything as you covered every possible detail to make sure a wonderful day ran so smooth and easy.

Our guests still haven't stop commenting on how wonderful our wedding was and how well it was run. That is a credit to both on how well you run your organization and how well your staff have been trained. The service  was top class and I must admit I have never seen service quite like it.

Thank you both once again in helping us deliver our special day so perfectly.


Matt & Sophie Celima.



Dear Graham,

We hope you have had a fantastic weekend.

Sorry for the delay in writing this e-mail, following on from our Wedding on the 6th April, we would like to thank the team at Sky High for everything you did to ensure our day was the success it was.

We really appreciate the support you and Chris provided us in the lead up to the wedding with all the planning.

Many of our guests commented on how successful the reception was and on how amazing the venue was.

We truly had our ultimate wedding; it was the best day of our lives.

Thank you once again,

Melissa and Dave Bell



Dear Graham


We just wanted to thankyou so much for making our wedding the most amazing day/night of our lives.

From the start of preparations right through to the end of the wedding night both you and Chris were most helpful, we couldn't have asked for two better people to help us plan our wedding. You and the staff were amazing on the night we had so many comments on your professionalism and service.

Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of because of you, your eye for detail with our reception (sorry about our two gorgeous little boys messing up the rose petals)

Once again thankyou so much, you gave us a night we will never forget and memories that we will cherish forever.

Kind regards

Hi Graham,

Hope you are well

Just a quick email to say thank you thank you thank you for an absolutely perfect wedding and reception last Saturday.

We both had the most amazing time. We have had nothing but very positive feedback especially commenting on yourself and your interaction with our guests and of course your amazing team at sky high - everyone was very impressed with meal service and the way this was served and co-ordinated

You made our wedding preparations a breeze and always took the worry away - I had total faith in you leading up to the day that everything was going to be perfect - your extra touches just made for a night to remember - and of course you granted my 3 wishes - no rain, a gorgeous sunset (especially for our photos) and of course the fireworks

Words cannot explain our gratitude and appreciate to both yourself and Chris for everything - I hope I didn't cause you touch grief as I know I am a perfectionist but the room and all my 'must be coordinated' was perfect on the night - we absolutely loved the atmosphere on the night

Enough from us, must get back to the sunny beach and cocktails in gorgeous Boracay!!! (Had to say it to make you jealous hehe)

Love always Mr & Mrs Joules (amber & Nathan in case you have forgotten us


P.s we will pop up and see you upon our return from our honeymoon :)


Hi Graham and Chris,

Just wanted to tell you how thankful Flick and I are for everything you did to make our day perfect.

Your help from the moment we booked the date was incredible, and even with Flick's never ending list of questions you managed to help us the whole way. Your planning and information were second to none, and we can see now why you are in such high demand.

To the day, simply spectacular, I keep playing over in my head because it was that memorable. every single person we have talked to since we got back from our honeymoon has mentioned how great the day was, and we totally agree.

Your staff were exceptional, and leading the charge Graham took control which we loved, then Chris controlling the reception.

I can assure you after making our day this great we will be singing from the rooftops exactly how great your venue is, we couldnt have been happier with anything. Cudos on the Sunset aswell, topped off a day I will never forget.

My wife and I would like to thank you for everything.

Thank you so much

Felicity & Dyson Baker


Oh Graham where do i start..... 

From the moment i walked in there i knew thats where i wanted to get married, and then to go with all that there was you!!
You can ask anyone i know how much i fell in love with you :) haha
You were my topic of discussion when talking about the wedding as i have not meet anyone that does what you do.
Whether you meant it or not you made me feel like i was the only bride that mattered, and my whole wedding experience was stress free and relaxed for that reason.
My guests last night then got to experience 'Graham' and completely understood why i raved on so much about you..
So in saying all that i just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for us and making our experience one that we will always remember.
Thank you to all of your fabulous staff and also to Chris whom helped me along the way with my random emails :)
They are very lucky to have you there and i will soooooo miss you!!
But we will be back.. probably not for another wedding as much as i'd love to do it all again :)
Your recomendations, Debbie O'Neill = Perfect, Paul = Celebrant of the year, Marcel = AAMMAZING!!!!!!!
Last night was AMAZING, everything was PERFECT and we thank you for that.
See you sometime soon
MRS & MR Beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the work Graham and Chris did towards our wedding.  
Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of, and a big part of that was to do with the team at Sky High. It was so wonderful to walk into our reception and see all the little details that we had spent so long dreaming of and hoping for, come together. We could enjoy every moment of our reception because we were so looked after! Throughout the night and the weeks to follow we received the most amazing feedback from our guests - they were blown away by the gorgeous venue, they LOVED the food, and they found all the staff to be polite and efficient (I actually sat back and watched the wait staff at one point and it honestly looked like a choreographed dance, they were that organised!).
I had high expectations about our reception - not only because of the stunning venue, but because of how at ease I felt after the meetings at Sky High to discuss order of events - I knew we were in good hands! 
However I have to say that everything exceeded our expectations - the night was so much more than we dreamed of.
We will never be able to say thank you enough, but please know because of your kindness, knowledge and experience we were blessed with an incredible reception, which has left us with memories we will cherish forever.
Endless thanks,
Mr. and Mrs. Lazaro!


Hi Graham,

Ray and I would just like to say and big thank you for all the effort you put into making our special day perfect. I would personally like to thank you for making everything seem so easy, there was nothing that was too much trouble and I had so much fun planning our reception with you.

The night itself was more than I could have ever hoped for the room looked so beautiful that it even took my breath away when I walked in. The staff were excellent and the food was to die for!!!! The most impressive thing was how the food was how the food was served and place in front of each guest my guests are still telling me how much they loved that.

Sky High is an amazing place to have a wedding reception not only because of the beautiful views, but also because of the experience and the care factor of those in charge of your night.

Thanks again

Dear Graham,

I would like to start by thank you personally for all the hard work and effort that you put in to for our special day, I do not believe that any words can express my true appreciation for all of your help .
Thanks for also putting up with my million and one emails and phone calls.
Our Wedding day was everything and more that we had hoped for, and we wanted to thank you and the staff for all of their assistance.
The attention to detail was amazing and the venue looked fantastic.
Both Dale and myself enjoyed the whole experience, and with your great support, we did not have a worry at all and everything was done as we requested.
Nothing was too big or too hard and it all seemed hassle free.
All of our guests commented on how amazing the night was and that no one could top a wedding like ours.
The fireworks were a great recommendation, and was the ultimate touch to the night.
The cost and value for money was outstanding. The quality and selection of food was impeccable (thanks to the Chef and kitchen staff)
We would highly recommend the venue to anyone we meet. Sky high should be proud of the fantastic staff that they have and most importantly the planners.
I have attached some photos for you, and once again thank you for both myself and Dale.

Melinda Wyatt  - November 2010

Hi Graham,

Firstly... Thank you SOOOOOOO much for EVERYTHING you did for us to make our day full of special memories!!!!!!!  The room looked absolutely stunning it was perfect!  We couldn’t have asked for anything more. 
You and your staff were so welcoming and extremely helpful.  All our guests were utterly impressed with the entire day/night.  They Loved the venue, being so diverse they could go out onto the balcony for fresh air without feeling like they’re stuck in the back alley.  It didn’t matter where they went whether it be the reception room, balcony or gardens they still had an amazing view.  They loved the extra touches, such as all the staff surrounding the table during meal times and serving each guest on the table at the same time.  Every guest commented on this.  It made them feel special.  They loved that you “took charge”, in a sense, and made sure everything was perfect.  You made everyone feel so welcome and at ease, it was just another reason for them to fall in love with the place.  (Some friends even booked a table for dinner the next night!)
Please give a big thank you to your chef/cook, again all the guests commented on the divine food served.  They all LOVED the canapés stating that each single one tasted insanely awesome and they loved the variety.  Some have even gone to guessing the ingredients to try and make them at home!   Apart from that, every meal served couldn’t be faulted.  It’s not often you go to a wedding where every dish melts in your mouth or so to speak.
All our guests stated it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to.  They had an absolute ball.  We couldn’t have achieved this without you, Graham, and Sky High.
Once again, thank you for everything!  We are lost for words to describe our appreciation.  We are most definitely going to nominate Sky High for an award, under every category possible!  This venue and the staff are truly heaven.
All the best Graham.

Kind Regards,
Samantha & Matthew King.

Graham and J'nae,

Thanks again for everything last Sunday night - Lachlan and I had the perfect day. From the very beginning you were both wonderful in helping to organise our big day and you provided many useful bits of advice along the way! The function itself was just fantastic. The MC, music, food, decorations, ambience and little personal touches were great. We were well looked after by all the staff and I've had quite a few people say it was the best wedding they've ever attended! We cannot possibly sing your praises highly enough.

My best regards,
Kerilee (aka MRS PEARSE!)

Graham and Poppy,

Thank you for your help in making our wedding the most incredible day that
Glenn and I have ever had. Your help, advise and professionalism ensured
that everyone had a great time.

We have already had so much feedback from friends and family about our
wedding being the best they have been to and that SkyHigh is the best venue.
I am sure you will be seeing a lot of them in the future for meals and

The dinner was delicious (just as good as the tasting night) please pass on
our compliments to the chef and kitchen staff, the service was outstanding
and the staff so friendly and accommodating. Glenn and I were not left
wanting at any stage of the night. Poppy had a continual smile on her face
all night and everything was run so smoothly under her guidance. I was so
happy that when we found out she was in charge of our night as she was so
good on our tasting night.

Thank you for our special champagne it was delicious.

Graham we cannot thank you enough for the help you have given us over the
past 4 months. It was like having a close friend organise the wedding who
wanted the day/night to be as perfect as we did.

Love Jo-Anne and Glenn Monk

On behalf of all of my family, we would like to thank you so much for helping organise what turned out to be such an amazing night.

Everything was just perfect. Please also pass along our thanks and gratitude to all of the staff as they all did such a great job.  
I’d like to especially thank (sorry I have forgotten her name!) the older lady with short hair, because she took such great care of all of the guests on Saturday night, she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. 

But most of all, we would like to thank you for all of your help, because we couldn’t have had it work out so well without you.

You’ve just been great and have made it a terrific and smooth running experience that I’m sure my Mum won’t be forgetting in a hurry. I’m sorry for all the back and forth communication and confusion we may have caused you. I don’t plan on organising another surprise party any time soon thank goodness!  But if I ever do, I know where to have it!!!

Again, thanks so much.

"In choosing a wedding venue we were after style and not the white fluff that many of them tend to have, and once we stepped foot into the new SkyHigh we knew it was exactly what we were after. We could not have been any happier with the choice that we made to hold our wedding reception at SkyHigh. The atmosphere, and of course that spectacular view, made it such a magical evening.

J'nae was fantastic in coordinating the evening, and even though she was very new in the role, never at any stage were we concerned about her abilities to deliver everything as planned. This then allowed us to concentrate on organising all of the other wedding related matters. On the night, the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and efficient and for weeks later we had many positive comments from family and friends that attested to this - and the food was great too. We will always have the wonderful memories of our wedding reception at SkyHigh. Thank you to all the staff at SkyHigh and especially J'nae for making it such a great night."

Olivia and Stuart McDougall

Thank you to Management and All Staff at SkyHigh for helping create such wonderful memories of our Wedding Day – 6th May, 2006.

A special thank you to J’nae for her professionalism and dedication in seeing to all our needs and making sure they all went according to plan.  No request or silly question from a crazy, stressed out bride-to-be was any trouble! Thank you for your support and kindness.

We really couldn’t have picked a more spectacular and wonderful location for both our ceremony and reception.  We had such a great time and have had many compliments from our family and friends for our choice.

The gardens were beautiful and well kept which added that perfect touch to our photographs.  The “Secret Garden” with the gazebo had such a romantic feel to it and gave us the opportunity for a special and intimate ceremony.  The views were absolutely stunning both outside and within the reception building, especially at night.  The meals were delicious and beautifully presented.  All of that along with the exceptionally friendly and helpful table and bar service truly made our wedding such a brilliant and fun event full of fantastic memories that will last a lifetime.

Thanks SkyHigh.

David and Kerry-Anne Kerr
