Wedding Packages 2021/2022

Welcome

Level One Events is solely focused on creating uniquely beautiful events suitable to each couple.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ wedding package simply because no love is the same.

We recognize that every couple has a vision of what the day looks and feels like and it’s our job to match your requests with our services based on taste, style and budget.

Too often in the wedding industry we hear of couples complaining that there’s far too many options, confusing price structures and overwhelming correspondence between all parties involved. Our solution is a straight-forward, no fuss approach to wedding planning so that you may focus on what’s important to you.

We can provide part of or all of the venue, catering, décor and planning, … well, it’s a long list but you get the point. We’re here to assist you in making this magic happen, not breaking the bank!

Enjoy the process of planning or leave it all up to us. Need a wedding checklist?

We’re here to assist so please feel free to ask questions, stop in for a tour and chat with our friendly Event Planner to discuss all options and possibilities.

Weather

Argo Deck makes the perfect spot for an outdoor Ceremony in the warmer months. The deck is also great for creating a dance floor, socializing and games area including a mobile bar.

For spring & autumn seasons, we will use discretion when planning the best possible outcome as chilly winds and rain can be a damper on any outside event.

 

Summer Weddings (December to February)

 

Take advantage of the gorgeous sunshine and sunset views from Argo Deck. Host both the ceremony and dance floor here. The Chef’s Dining area and Lounge are ideal for the reception, speeches and cake cutting.

With the cooler months we keep things warm and cozy indoors. You’ll have full access to the Terrace if guests want to pop out for some fresh air, cigar or cigarette.

The Lounge or Chef’s Dining can host the ceremony with full window frontage creating the perfect beach backdrop and bright daytime lighting. Then move to the cake cutting and dance floor portion of the event.
