OVERVIEW

The beauty of Sofitel Sydney Wentworth weddings is that every section of your wedding day can take place in one central and glamorous location. This 5-star Sydney hotel wedding venue is a stunning architectural treasure on the periphery of the Royal Botanic Gardens. Your guests will be blown away by the magnificent ballroom and picturesque garden terrace.

Sofitel Sydney Wentworth hotel has a signature French style fused with Art Deco splendour. The refined interiors are made for decadent celebrations of all sizes, with a huge capacity of up to 980 standing guests. Whichever room you choose for your wedding celebrations, you’ll be in the safe hands of an experienced planner who can transform each space to meet your vision.


The primary event space is the Wentworth Ballroom and Foyer on Level 3, which is a vast uninterrupted space for dinner dances and opulent receptions. The sparkling 1960s mirrored ceiling lifts the room with a luxe golden glow and the spectacular Heritage-listed Waterford Crystal chandeliers create a wow-factor finish. 


Outside, the Garden Terrace is a beautiful semi-circle courtyard with manicured topiary and colourful flower beds. It makes a heavenly space for an alfresco wedding ceremony or pre-dinner drinks reception, before a formal dinner inside the Garden Court Restaurant. The stylish variety of function spaces create photogenic moments both inside and out.

Bonjour, 

 

Congratulations on your engagement!

 

I always suggest to family & friends that the best way to start looking for your venue is to define 3 -4 "must haves". These could include service ratios, water views, ceremony locations, budget etc. 

When you start going for site inspections make a shortlist of around 5 venues, I would suggest going into the venues as well. Photos can be out dated or used to show the venues desired perspective. Take your partner, or someone else who has your idea in mind, so that you can get another perspective as well. 

 

Good luck in finding a venue for your Special day!
