Thanks ever so much to you and Simon & his crew but a gorgeous day out on the harbour! We have some great pictures of the event & everybody had an awesome time! The crew was ever so helpful and it all went really really well.
Thanks to everyone once again! Cheers, Laurene
I would like to thank you and the crew on the night for all the work that was done to make our cruise a huge success. It was a fantastic night that went off without a hitch and all credit to the folks on the night who worked quietly behind the scenes to make it happen.
Thanks again, Marna
You are wonderful! I couldn’t have hoped to have had the process made so simple and easy! You made everything painless so thank you Michelle! The AQA was amazing, beyond all expectations. Everything was wonderful and a special thanks to the crew & DJ for making our night so memorable. My brother had the best night & I think I will manage to be the best sister for the rest of the year on that! Thanks so much & I will definatley use you guys in the future! EM xx
Everything went really well with the wedding. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Simon for his help and advice prior to the wedding and to Clinton and the AQA team on the day. The staffs were first class and everyone had a fantastic day.
Kind regards, Elissa
The event was spectacular, everyone raved about it and has commented on it being one of their best reward and recognition events, the food & beverage was fantastic, the boat of course was the most raved about, I’m sure we will be trying to hire it again, also the magician and laser shoot were such a wonderful compliment to an awesome day! Thankyou so much for a wonderful day, we hop to see you again soon!
