Weddings & parties

From elegant city locations for garden weddings to harbour views and country escapes, Sydney Living Museums has the perfect setting for your special day or event.  


Choose from seven historic wedding venues across Sydney. Each property is unique and offers a range of beautiful indoor and outdoor options for your ceremony or reception.

Celebrate your special day or event surrounded by the grandeur and elegance of Elizabeth Bay House or in the picturesque and tranquil grounds of Vaucluse House. If you prefer a city location, hosting your celebration amidst the stunning, historical architecture of The Mint or Hyde Park Barracks Museum will be a memorable experience for you and your guests.

Sydney Living Museums venues are unique and versatile, accommodating between 20 and 500 guests, giving you the opportunity to create a day that is distinctively yours. Each property has its own special ambience that is sure to enhance the atmosphere and mood of your wedding day.

Our venue locations span Sydney’s CBD as well as include quiet, picturesque locations on the city’s outskirts and are conveniently accessed by public transport links and major roads.

From the moment you decide a Sydney Living Museums venue is the ideal setting for your wedding or event, you will be introduced to your own dedicated wedding or event co-ordinator who will work with you from start to finish to create your perfect wedding day or special celebration. Each venue is also equipped with an in-house Audiovisual Team, whose expertise and knowledge provide a seamless solution tailored to your exact requirements – all ensuring you are able to relax and enjoy your day with the knowledge that everything is taken care of.

A wonderful wedding or celebration would not be complete without a delicious array of food, drink and catering options. Every effort has gone into securing the best caterers who work with us exclusively to provide mouth-watering menus to suit a range of budgets. With elite catering partners such as Restaurant Associates, Fresh Catering and Sparkling Catering and Events, your guests are in for a real culinary treat!

Every wedding and event is special to us and the Sydney Living Museums Venues Team has the experience, expertise and customer service to deliver a truly unforgettable event that will celebrate your love story.



“All the planning and organising was so worth it. Everything about the day was perfect, I must also mention Joe, the wedding co ordinator, who was absolutely brilliant on the day. He was so helpful and professional in every way. Nothing was too much trouble and he even helped with the setting up ...Thank you for all your help over the last year. The venue was perfect for what the couple wanted.” Steggles/Jones Wedding, Rose Seidler House, July 2013
