The Enduring Love of Two Athletes

12 June, 2019

Congratulations to Shirley Vine & Iain Dow on their marriage... With the Bride and Groom being triathletes and marathon runners, they wasted no time in booking their wedding reception with us at the Crystal Swan. Even before we set sail for a one-of-a-kind celebration the newlyweds had gone for a long morning run to relax before the big day!

The newlyweds and the 90 guests in attendance enjoyed the banquet-style goumet luncheon prepared by our onboard executive chef, handcrafting a wide variety of mouth-watering food. The reception was topped off by a stunning three tier wedding cake complete with the bride and groom crossing the finishing line together.

Special thanks to Pure Elegance for beautifully transforming the Crystal Swan into a decadent affair.

We wish the lucky couple a long and healthy marriage. All the best from the staff and crew at the Crystal Swan.

  • Thanks heaps for all your help with the year 11 river cruise! The event went very well and all the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks for being EXTREMELY accommodating with all the requests coming through and providing a night of memories for the students. You guys make a great team, and provide exceptional service before and during the event, which makes it even more memorable on our behalf as you made it easy for planning purposes at our end.

  • Hi Patsy,

    Ensure all the Staff and Peter receives my sincere thanks. We have been discussing and think it’s the best Christmas Party we have had in 10 years, and we know how to party!

    Staff were great and gave it a nice relaxing feeling. Everyone had a blast.

  • I held a corporate dinner event on the Crystal Swan in late Oct 2017 and can say the event far exceeded our expectations. From the planning stages, through to set-up and finally service/catering at the event - we were impressed! The staff and crew are wonderful, the food is not your typical "boat" food (so don't be afraid!) and the boat itself is really quite unique and allows fantastic views to the city and surrounds. I would book with Crystal Swan again and recommend them as a venue option no questions asked. Thanks again Patty, Tam, Peter, Skipper & crew!
