Congratulations! We are delighted that you are considering our venue for your special day.

Dating back to 1803, Vaucluse House is one of Sydney’s most treasured harbourside estates, just minutes from the city centre. Ten hectares of picturesque gardens and grounds, stretching down to the water’s edge, make this venue a highly desirable location for wedding ceremonies, receptions and photography.

The lone pine lawn is a charming and secluded location for a wedding ceremony, and the elegant, art deco Vaucluse House Tearooms, surrounded by lush gardens and expansive lawns, make a wonderful venue for wedding receptions.

Wedding reception

The art deco Vaucluse House Tearooms provide a private, romantic reception venue close to lone pine lawn, and accommodate up to 120 guests for lunch or dinner. This fully licensed venue offers both indoor and outdoor options, and the team at Vaucluse House Tearooms will coordinate all aspects of your reception to ensure it meets your every expectation.

Our on-site hospitality partner, Fresh Catering, can also design an elegant wedding cocktail reception on the lawn, for up to 120 guests. The covered sandstone verandah is available as a wet weather option, and a fitted canvas mat will be placed on the verandah to protect the sandstone flooring. Receptions on the lawn are limited to daylight hours.
