We held our wedding ceremony and reception at AGNSW and Chiswick at the Gallery and were thrilled with the outcome. Both event coordinators from the AGNSW and Solotel were professional and a delight to deal with, throughout the planning process and on the day. We had a high degree of confidence that our special day would be a success, and it was! We were also very pleased with the ‘look and feel’ of the function space and restaurant – the seamless interface between the two areas and the natural light created a wonderful atmosphere. The quality of the food and wine from Chiswick was excellent (a cut above “wedding venue” fare), and the table service was attentive and professional. Thanks to the staff of AGNSW/Chiswick for helping ensure our wedding was a truly memorable and special occasion.

We chose Chiswick because of its food. It did not fail our expectations on the night. From the menu and wine selection to the consistency of the each plates, it was not an ordinary “wedding food”. From the first communication till the end, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In terms of the location, what can we fault? We got to have the entire gallery reserved to us during that night. Even though there was very limited time frame for my wedding planners/florists to setup as it opened to public until 5:00pm, the end result is worthy. The moment when our guests walked in and through the Gallery when no crowds around is something that everyone has been talking about.

We used part of the gallery as well as the restaurant. Everything was very aesthetically pleasing at the venue. We tailored a few things We had a set menu and a drinks menu, and going on from that we tailored a few things to suit what we wanted. Rebecca was our contact at Chiswick, she was super helpful with it all. Even though some of the decor and how the way the night ran was custom, they were still able to provide everything! Everything was really stress free and easy with them. We could just come and leave, without needing to pack up!

The team at Chiswick looked after us so well. From the first meeting to discuss options at the venue to the amazing team on the night. It was such a seamless evening and we could not have asked for a better venue. The menu options across food and wine were top notch and we got rave reviews from our guests about the quality of food and service.
