Famous for its 180-degree view of Perth’s majestic Swan River, the Boatshed Restaurant is a popular wedding venue. 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. For a cosy wedding with restaurant-quality food, the Boatshed Restaurant is the perfect place.

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!

What you can expect when you work with the Boatshed Restaurant for your Perth wedding:

  • Personalised and attentive service. Couples have raved about the Boatshed Restaurant team’s attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond. Your needs will be taken care of by their professional and enthusiastic staff.

  • Delicious food. Keeping in mind dietary requirements, the Boatshed Restaurant created heart and gourmet fare using premium quality ingredients.

What you’ll love about the Boatshed Restaurant for your Perth wedding:

  • The panoramic views. The backdrop of your wedding through the floor-to-ceiling windows is over the iconic Swan River, all the way across to the Perth city skyline.

  • The welcoming atmosphere. You and your guests will feel right at home at the Boathouse Restaurant. This stylish venue has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the connecting dining areas allow for your friends and family to mingle easily.

We could not be happier with our choice to have our reception at the Boatshed! It was a beautiful venue with fabulous food and drinks. It was a 'one-stop shop' for our reception and included cake and decorations. We would highly recommend.” Alessia S

What can I say, The Boatshed is the perfect place to have your wedding. The venue, the food, the staff, everything was perfect! We received so many comments on how amazing the food was and it was a real treat to choose your own meal, how beautiful the location is and how the staff were just incredible. I wouldn’t change a thing. A special thanks to Graeme, Sophia and Claire for ensuring the day went smoothly. We had the best time!

The Boatshed Restaurant was incredible, the venue is stunning and the staff are beautiful. From our first meeting the staff were friendly, helpful, creative, organised and reliable. We couldn’t have asked for better service. They kept in contact with us, and answered all our questions. They had great ideas to help make the night flow (with entrance, speeches, first dance, meals and all) and helped make the night so much fun! They were flexible with timings of meals which meant we were able to step out for more sunset photos without worrying. The drinks and food were exquisite and the menu choices suited all the dietary requirements of guests. They provided all the decor and styles the venue beautifully. The tables were set up so well and the menus/place cards were lovely! We couldn’t have asked for a better night or better service. They really were amazing!

We had our wedding reception at the Boatshed Restaurant on November 13th, 2022. The service, drink selection and food was amazing. The views and venue itself looked absolutely beautiful! Claire, Graeme and the rest of the Boatshed Team were so helpful throughout the entire process. From when we booked the venue, right up until the end of the reception. Thank you for making our wedding day truly memorable! We highly recommend the Boatshed Restaurant. Steph and Ivan

Here are some of the things we loved; - The staff were really attentive, polite and friendly. - The food was amazing with each table’s courses coming out at the same time. - The atmosphere and ambience was perfect for a wedding. - The location is perfect with sunset and night time city views from every table. - The wedding cake was beautiful. - Graeme and Claire both had great advice on how to make the night run smoothly and were always helpful.

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.
