Luxurious, iconic and memorable are the three words used by the team at the world renowned Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel to introduce their venue. Directly grounded on the sandy shoreline of the exclusive enclave of Watsons Bay in Sydney, NSW, this venue has unobstructed panoramic views of Sydney’s sparkling harbour. With multiple harbour front wedding and event spaces and 31 boutique hotel suites, it is one of the most perfect destinations for a seaside wedding ceremony, reception or engagement party, and can play host to intimate weddings for 50 people, or lavish parties for up to 250 guests.
Their main wedding and event space, The Sunset Room, has been carefully curated to encapsulate seaside opulence with a Hampton’s aesthetic. This private room features crisp white walls, floor to ceiling windows with spectacular harbour views, grey wash timber flooring, a white marble bar, a Juliette balcony and nautical finishing. Situated directly above The Sunset Room is the Top Deck - a large alfresco space with a million dollar vista, private bar and fully retractable roof ensuring a flawless event come rain, shine or sunset. In between, The Mid Deck also offers an alfresco space with panoramic water views.
With a background of fine dining and Michelin starred restaurants, the Executive Chefs at the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel bring years of culinary experience to your wedding menu. The modern Australian cuisine is influenced by the close proximity to the sea, and superior seafood arrangements matched with fresh seasonal produce are on offer. The diversity and flexibility of the menu and wine lists is rivalled only by the ways in which the venue can serve them. Hold your wedding at this venue and you can guide your guests through their culinary Experience Stations, chatter over canapés and cocktails or indulge in communal seafood feasts. The dining can be as bespoke as your desires.
To coordinate your day, the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has in-house wedding coordinators to bestow on your planning process an intimate knowledge of the area, ensuring your dreams become a reality.
As we all know, a wedding is one of the most important days of our lives and too much time is often spent travelling from the ceremony to photography spots, then on to the reception and finally back to the accommodation. So what’s really special about the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is that it facilitates a seamless transition between each special moment. The location is easily accessible via a picturesque ferry or boat ride, or on road via limousine or vintage car. Then upon arrival, a range of ceremony options are available be it a beach, park or church service. Then, if you’re feeling extra fabulous they can offer a private yacht to transport the wedding party to a nearby secluded beach for photographs whilst your guests enjoy cocktails on the Top Deck. And once all of this is done, you will find yourselves indulging in a modern Australian menu designed by our award winning chefs. Then, after the celebrations with your loved ones have come to an end, you and your new Husband can retire to one of the 31 boutique suites, we recommend the Grand Harbour Suite.
Panoramic Sydney Harbour views, stunning styled exclusive spaces, boutique accommodation and a team of award winning chefs – there’s not much else you would need to make your wedding day an unforgettable experience.
