What is the average cost per plate in Sydney?

I'm trying to pin down my guestlist - I have about 30k to spend on the venue/food. Any help is recommended. :)

Hi!

It depends on how many guests attending your wedding, which month and year you were after and if you would like a friday, saturday and sunday

Our packages at lauriston House start from $110 per person, we also have complementary taste testing of our food most saturdays with private consultations (by appointment only) to tailor make your perfect wedding package Would be happy to chat about all things weddings anytime, call us on 9858 3335.

Have lovely Day!

How to make your ceremony and reception work in one location?

Im planning to have both my ceremony and my reception in the same room. How would I change the decor etc if everyones still in there lol thanks xx

Hi Cheryl,

First of all Happy Planning!

It helps if the reception is an exclusive one function venue. At Lauriston House we offer an outdoor garden ceremony. Our brand new gardens offer the ideal setting for your marriage ceremony, wedding photos or pre-dinner drinks. Make a breath-taking entrance to your ceremony by walking down the 60-foot aisle from the house to the Victorian wrought-iron gazebo, past the beautiful cherry blossoms and exquisite fountain.

if the weather seems unhappy on the day we move the ceremony to our large foyer, you would marry in front of the fire place. In our experience, we wouldn't recommend marrying in the same room as your reception for two reasons 1) photos and 2) it wouldn't look pretty walking down an aisle with set tables.

Hope this helps

Warm Regards,

Chriso George

How do venues cater to children and teens?

I have some kids (under 10) and then 8 cousins in their teens. I'm not sure where the wedding is yet (open to anywhere in Aus), but they make up a large portion of my guests so I don't want them to feel bored! Can venues supply mocktails for them so they can feel part of it and party with us? Should I be asking about kids rooms or somewhere where I can set up an xbox or netflix or something for them to do? Should I hire some games?

Hi Becca, that's a great idea, yes we can supply mock tails to the teens and children, we do also have a children's room with a TV and DVD player, we also have suppliers that will entertain the children with board games and fun activities. Lauriston House is a great venue with anyone looking to host there wedding with losts of children attending as it is a ONE function venue. I hope this helps
