The Mint is a time capsule in the centre of it all. Known to be Sydney’s oldest public building, Sydney Living Museums has preserved the property to take you on a journey back to a bygone era. It’s a timeless museum wedding venue where your love story can become the next chapter of its rich history.
The Mint includes three award-winning event spaces for your wedding day, two of which are located outside for the ultimate alfresco atmosphere. Couples are instantly drawn to the Sandstone Courtyard for its rustic pave stones and arched walkways which make a gorgeous backdrop to ceremonies and wedding photographs. The raised lawn introduces a refreshing green oasis that contrasts to the cooling stone setting. Long banqueting tables below festoon lights make a spellbinding scene for a dinner under the stars.
If you need a wet weather option, a stylish glass bar runs along the side of the Sandstone Courtyard for pre-dinner drinks and canapes. Your guests can then be led into the Gold Melting Room for an a la carte meal by the highly regarded Pearl Catering team. This is the largest function space on offer with state-of-the-art technology and an architecturally-designed curved wooden ceiling. It’s an inspiring example of how the venue seamlessly blends the old with the new.
