Best service in Melbourne. Could not have asked for more. Everything was professional and perfect - admin and organisation leading up to our day and then the big day was run impeccably. Included in the wedding package is accommodation for the wedding night. Anything we wanted the Prince Deck was able to help with. The venue was amazing, the food was amazing and the Prince Deck team were simply fabulous.

The Prince was fantastic right from the get-go. Friendly and personable staff. They were so considerate of us during such a tough and difficult time planning for a wedding just as COVID hit. We moved to a part outdoor, part indoor wedding due to requirements and were thrilled with how it looked at night. It was stunning! The food was delectable and looked great on the plate. We had so much fun and the staff were so lovely and helped to pack up at night. We loved the Deck and can't wait to revisit again!

We honestly don't know how to describe how amazing this venue is, and do it justice! My husband and I had our wedding at The Prince Deck a fortnight ago and it was absolutely perfect! We can't thank this amazing team for creating the wedding day of our dreams, not only for us but for all our family and friends. They raved about the venue so much and rightly so!! It's the perfect venue.
