The Apollo International Hotel in Charlestown is the wedding venue that has it all. Located amongst rustic bushland between pristine Newcastle beaches and the tranquil Lake Macquarie, it is surrounded by stunning natural beauty. It’s the perfect backdrop for gorgeous photos and a relaxed setting for drinks and canapes with your guests.

The outdoor rotunda is the ideal spot for a garden ceremony right next to the function rooms and surrounded by native bush. Guests can sip sparkling wine and nibble on gourmet delicacies in the gardens before entering the reception to greet the special couple.

Choose from an elegant sit-down meal in our Apollo room right next to the sparkling pool or spend the evening grazing on canapes and platters while you mingle with your guests.

The Apollo also saves the hassle of arranging accommodation for both the bridal couple and guests by offering special wedding party rates for anyone choosing to stay the night (or two!)  The bride and groom will be treated to a deluxe suite to spend their wedding night complete with sparkling wine, chocolates and breakfast for two in the morning.

The team at Apollo made everything so easy. From our initial walk through to final planning nothing was to hard. We loved being able to have the entire wedding on-site, including photos in the bushland setting after our ceremony. Our guests were able to easily book aaccommodation & everything was great value. Our coordinator Pam went above & beyond on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. We would recommend to anyone looking for an all inclusive venue. 10/10

We are so glad we booked to have our ceremony and reception at the Apollo. Pamela and the staff went above and beyond to make our day as wonderful as it was. It was really affordable, the food was excellent, we were able to get great photos on site, and Pamela is super quick and getting back to any queries.

Everything we ever asked for 😍😍 Pamela our Wedding coordinator was easy to work with and straight forward we loved her in our assistance of our big day 😍😍😍

My partner and I got married here March 2022. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. A beautiful bush land out the back where the function is, which you would not expect with the front of the hotel on a main road, quite, peaceful and absolutely beautiful for photos, socialising and so much outdoor space. The inside function room was more than enough space for our 85 guests! And it’s absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner (Pam), and a venue. Not to mention it was the most affordable venue in the entire Newcastle area! Absolutely everything went to plan thanks to these guys! And Pam is there for you every time you need her without a doubt. Thank you Apollo for creating the best day of our life’s!

We could not thank Renee and the staff enough for the service provided by the staff at the Apollo. They were super accommodating to our needs, the day ran so smoothly and everyone was professional and approachable. Would highly recommend the Apollo for your wedding or function!

14 Feb 2021

Our wedding at the Apollo was the best day we could have asked for. Renee, the wedding coordinator, gets an honourable mention in bringing this day to life and the rest of the staff were delightful and made us feel welcome and special. Reasonably priced and great service. Couldn’t have asked for a better venue!

Apollo was amazing!! Wedding Coordinator Pamela was so helpful and took care of all the hard work and was there throughout the day to make sure everything was perfect. Everything for the wedding was there, photos, accommodation, ceremony and reception which made the night easily flowing. 100% recommend.

9 Jan 2021

The Apollo was the ultimate venue for our wedding! We wanted somewhere where we could do everything in one beautiful and convenient place. From the ceremony to the reception and even our honeymoon suite, we loved every moment of our wedding. Renee was exceptional and made the planning process smooth and easy, even when dealing with Covid. The staff on the day and night were beyond amazing and delivered such wonderful service to our guests and in particular our wedding party. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Thank you so much Renee for being such an important and helpful part of our wedding journey.

We absolutely loved having our wedding through the Apollo, we felt so supported all the way from the lead up and throughout the night. We loved that it was in one place so our guests didn't have to travel between places to get from Ceremony to Reception. The staff catered for all our dietary needs and even portions small enough for the oldies. When the call to be placed inside for the Ceremony was made, I didn't have to stress about anything as Pam (Wedding Organizer) had it all covered and made it stress free for me. I would recommend any couple looking for a hassle free venue to definitely consider The Apollo! It's beautiful and all at one place, you are so supported throughout the whole experience, which was a big thing for us!

I have no other way to describe our wedding day but perfect. Renee and the team at Apollo International went above and beyond to make sure it was, particularly with the Covid restrictions we had to adhere to.

7 Aug 2020

Renee and her team were amazing and were with us every step of the way and made our day amazing and less stressful! Our day turned out beautiful and so special despite Covid restrictions and we couldn’t be happier! Cannot recommend the Apollo enough, it’s In a lovely spot and reasonably priced.. Great communication throughout the planning process even with having to reschedule due to Covid we felt so accommodated to and are so pleased with how it all turned out!!

1 Aug 2020

What an experience, getting married during COVID! Thankfully we had the incredible staff at the Apollo to make it as easy as possible and incredibly flexible during such a difficult time. We had so many issues within the month leading up to the wedding and the amazing Renee made the planning (and every government restriction) as easy as possible. We had the most incredible wedding day! The staff were so friendly, even with trying to maintain the regulations of keeping everyone seated and we have had so many guest comment on how great they were. The thing that stood out against all other venues was the service and everything is at the one venue (even the wet weather ceremony option). Thank you to Renee and the team for an incredible wedding day and humouring us with our crazy antics. We highly recommend Apollo Charlestown.
