Nestled under the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, Pier One Sydney Harbour in Walsh Bay is an exceptional waterfront wedding venue and luxury 5-star hotel with three immaculate event spaces for your dream day. The venue’s picturesque pontoon location floats above tranquil waters and enjoys panoramic views of the iconic Sydney Harbour skyline.


Couples gravitate towards Pier One Sydney Harbour for its desirable waterfront location and diverse function spaces both inside and out. Whether you’re after a relaxed indoor wedding reception looking out through floor-to-ceiling glass windows onto Walsh Bay, or an alfresco ceremony in the perspex marquee wedding venue, Pier One has everything you hoped for.


There are lots of choices for your wedding flow at this scenic Sydney wedding venue. You might start the day with a unique outdoor wedding ceremony where the rippling waters meet the pier, then welcome your guests into the Bridge Marquee, where they can sip on crisp glasses of champagne and gaze up at the looming Sydney Harbour Bridge. Later on, you could create the ultimate disco atmosphere as the sunset blazes into the Dawes Point Room. 


Across the sprawling Pier One Sydney Harbour pontoon, there are limitless possibilities for wedding photography.

We had our reception at Pier One. They were great! The food was 5/5! Really good. The staff were really accommodating.

14 Apr 2017

The venue was phenomenal! We had spectacular views of the bridge and Lunar Park, as the venue was directly under the harbour bridge. Our guests were blown away.

Hi Hine, Thank you for the review, we are so glad you had an amazing experience here with us at Pier One Sydney Harbour.

23 May 2014

Great and easy to work with, they gave us a comprehensive planning form and recommended suppliers and it made the whole thing super easy. The food was great and the view is just phenomenal. We even got free decorations as the next wedding's ceiling decorations were bumped in already!

Beautiful hotel and Walsh Bay Suite room. We had a great time and the staff were really friendly and accommodating while we prepared for our wedding and the day after. Eugene was especially fantastic along with Hatty and Phil. The servers at the Gantry who would deliver our food were so friendly and the food was great! Doreen was also really helpful from the front desk. Overall, we had a great time which is also why we decided to extend our stay for one more night. We would go back there again!

They were amazing, they just kept sending up wine and their service was so great! They even wrote out hand-written congratulation notes and would always ask if there was anything else they could do! They even put our hairdresser next to us even thought they were booked at different times which was so kind and helpful too!

Not only does Pier One have amazing views, the staff was so accommodating, food was awesome and my two night stay had the best service. I experienced a very smooth wedding planning experience with Rosie, who was responsive and meticulous. My guests raved about the food and views both at the ceremony (Bridge Marquee) and reception (Water).

Fabulous venue. The Bridge Marque is magical at night with the fairy lights - even though it was raining. The venue was so easy to deal with. The only challenge was out wedding planner not being available to us as planned in the few hours before the wedding, so a couple of things got missed and were done stressfully last minute. The food was inconsistent in quality. Aside from that, it was great.

We had a wonderful wedding at Pier One with great food, views and friendly staff. However you really need to think of every single detail when organising a wedding here for things to go smoothly as they won't think of them for you. We have taken Pier One through our feedback and credit to them they did call back and go through it with us (see my longer Google review). They need to improve on handling any customisations to their normal wedding package and be flexible in dealing with any issues that arrive on the evening given they are meant to provide 5 star service.

23 Sep 2018

Amazing wedding venue with a breathtaking view of the iconic Sydney Harbour. Our wedding ran smoothly on the day and the food is fantastic.

25 Aug 2018

Great venue. The staff were good and everything went to plan on the day.
