Situated in the heart of Centennial Park in East Sydney, Centennial Homestead is a gorgeous outdoor wedding venue with two open-plan event spaces and the option to hire a marquee in the grounds. Coupled with delicious catering by the Trippas White Group and an experienced wedding team, your Centennial Homestead wedding will enchant every guest.

Are you dreaming of a garden wedding venue in Sydney where you can host an outdoor ceremony and a relaxed open-air reception? Centennial Homestead ticks all of the right boxes when it comes to parkland weddings in an accessible city location. It’s one of a kind wedding venue that allows you to celebrate surrounded by natural landscapes or host an indoor banquet if you prefer.


Centennial Homestead’s Kitchen and Wisteria Room are decorated in a desirable Hamptons style aesthetic, with wraparound glass windows that look out onto the lawns. The events team have also curated a beautiful selection of nature-inspired styling pieces, which are welcome to use on your wedding day or you can bring in alternative suppliers. Centennial Homestead is a versatile canvas to create the wedding day you’ve always imagined. 


Couples often opt to marry outside in one of the ten ceremony spots, such as the tranquil lakeside location or immersed in the lush pine forest. Afterwards, the Trippas White Group will serve a magnificent meal that’s specific to you and your guests’ dietary requirements and preferences. Centennial Homestead weddings always exceed expectations and create memories that last a lifetime. 


Top three things you’ll love about your Centennial Homestead wedding:

Questions and Answers

Do you have more than one event on at the same time ?

Centennial Homestead

Evening receptions are completely private with just your friends and family!

We like to drink spirits not wine how can we factor this into our reception without paying the EARTH ?

Centennial Homestead

Centennial has a prepaid spirits menu which is a more cost effective way to provide spirits at your wedding and also ask our event team about how to best structure your beverage selection throughout your reception.

How do we get out of the park when we need to leave ?

Centennial Homestead

We have the Paddington gates open always, and we can provide you with a map should you wish to include this in your invitations.

How can we make our wedding unique ?

Centennial Homestead

By adding elements that are unique to you as a couple, sometimes this can be reflected in the entertainment or the food and beverage theming. Most importantly creating a day that suits you is what our Events team is here to achieve!

Our parents need to be here for the menu tasting can we please bring them ?

Centennial Homestead

YES! There are additional fees depending on your menu selection but we would love to meet you all J

The team at Centennial Homestead were amazing, they really helped pull our dream wedding together and we didn't hear a single peep of anything going wrong. All of the guests raved about the service, food and atmosphere and said it was one of the best weddings they had been to. They answered all of my questions super quickly and were able to accommodate so many little requests.

I highly recommend centennial homestead for a wedding venue. Venue is stunning located inside centennial park. Staff is friendly, professional and very organized. You will get your own case manager and he/she will help you out through the wedding planning. All our guests loved the food and drinks provided at our wedding day. Overall we had a blast and can’t thank enough the staff at homestead for making it a very special night for us. Thankyou!

The Centennial homestead was the best decision that we could've made when planning our wedding. I couldn't have asked for a better venue. Alisha, Aline, Victoria and the team were amazing. They supported us through all of the decision making and made it all way too easy. The venue itself is bright a beautiful, perfect for our day time reception. Our guests said it was the best food at a wedding that they've ever had and honestly the food really is amazing. The quality of their service is fantastic and i'm so proud of them fo making it perfect. Thank you so much

This place is a hidden gem. Aline and the team is really patient in accommodating all my requests. I had my ceremony at the Kitchen and reception at Wisteria room. Initially I am a bit worried with the sun setting early, but the venue is also very beautiful at night.

Great venue for a relaxed wedding reception. Very beautiful and intimate with the venue offering a 'Shared Menu' option which added to the feel of the day and night where we wanted all our guests to share and chat and be merry. Good service from the team throughout the planning and on t he day.
