Catering for both ceremony and reception, this warm and charming venue boasts hardwood floors, an abundance of natural light, and windows that open to the Perth city skyline.

If you’re looking for a wedding venue in Perth that toes the line between city and waterfront, the Boatshed Restaurant is the perfect solution. This welcoming and stylish restaurant features floor-to-ceiling windows that open up onto the Swan River and beyond that are the glittering lights of the Perth CBD.

For the ceremony, the Boatshed team roll out the red carpet – literally. A lush red carpet guides you out to the riverfront ceremony site. Say your vows beneath an arbour, the city and river your backdrop. A nearby jetty makes the ideal location for wedding photos, especially when the sun begins to set and the city lights begin to flicker on.

Head inside for the ceremony in the large and accommodating dining space. Interconnecting rooms allow for your guests to move through the space unencumbered, and the team have created a private area for the couple and wedding party to freshen up between the ceremony and reception.

As an operating restaurant, the catering is on-site and on point. Gourmet Australian meals are accentuated with European and Asian influences to create a satisfying and exciting menu. The catering team can also handle your wedding cake, ticking off one more thing from your to-do list!

The Boatshed Restaurant provided an amazing backdrop and venue for our recent wedding. The food was sensational, the service impeccable and the team were willing to help wherever needed. All of our guests had a sensational time and commented openly on how impressed they were with the venue also. We would highly recommend this venue for your wedding, or any other special function.

A gorgeous location providing picturesque views of the Swan River and Perth city centre. Chef was very willing to make minor modifications to the set menu we chose. The food was very good quality and our guests enjoyed the friendly service of their staff. Would definitely recommend.

Everyone absolutely loved it. The food, decoration, location and the service was all 5 stars! I was very happy with how everything looked on the day.

They were excellent. They've obviously been doing it for many years. They did the food, flowers and decor as well as referring you to some favourite suppliers of theirs! They did everything for us. The fact that they do everything is a very good deal. The food was absolutely outstanding. It was a very good experience
