COVID-19 and your Wedding or Function Booking

Posted on March 17, 2020

We understand how stressful and confusing the COVID-19 situation is, especially for couples planning their big day. Many brides and grooms have had to postpone or cancel their wedding celebrations because of the current global health climate. Now, we don’t know when the norm will again grace us, however we are hoping times are upon us.

If you’re currently planning a wedding or other event at Aquavue that is meant to take place in the next few months, we imagine that you have probably had thoughts of postponing your event to a future date. We want you to be aware, that if you feel the need to do this, we will work with you to find a new date that not only suits us both but also your other suppliers. There will be no additional fees or charges, we’ve got your back!

Current situation:

  • All events up until July 31st have been postponed or cancelled.
  • Providing the restrictions continue to ease, any events from August 1st will be able to go ahead providing that any regulations that are still in place (eg. 4m2 per person, social distancing and sharing or self-serve food) are adhered to. Your functions coordinator will guide you through these restrictions and assist you in making any changes that are necessary.
    If some regulations are still in place, we will be adapting our offerings to suit, for example, if food sharing or self-serve food (platters, canapes and grazing tables) is still not allowed, we will look at serving taster plates to each guest (ie, one or two of each canape type) or mini grazing plates instead. Some of these regulations may also impact your seating plans/maximum numbers, so it’s best to be prepared for this.

If you would prefer to postpone your event, and you have an alternative date in mind for later in 2020, or even in 2021, please let us know so we can put it on hold for your event.
A suggestion from us would be to consider looking into Monday to Thursday options as you may find it a lot easier to plan for your new event date. It’ll really help out a lot of your vendors!

New Bookings:

We are currently taking new bookings for weddings and events from September onwards. We anticipate the 2020/21 wedding season to be big and dates are already filling fast, so secure your dates ASAP!
We have released a COVID-19 RESPONSE weddings brochure which contains adjustments to packages, smaller numbers and a smaller minimum spend. Please find these packages under the FUNCTIONS tab of this website. These packages are valid for the remainder of 2020 and are subject to change according to current or updating restrictions.

Function Cancellation Policy:

  • Event holders are encouraged to postpone to another date or place the booking on hold until further notice. Any bookings on hold or postponed will retain the value and will resume at a later date.
  • Should you wish to proceed with cancellation, you will be provided with store credit or vouchers to use at a later date. These are valid for three years.
