Located on Sydney's historic Macquarie Street next to Hyde Park, The Mint is a sought after heritage wedding venue for its romantic sandstone architecture and colonnaded verandah. This former Royal Mint is now a spectacular event venue where you can exchange vows in the courtyard or Gold Melting Room and dine alfresco on the raised lawn.

The Mint is a time capsule in the centre of it all. Known to be Sydney’s oldest public building, Sydney Living Museums has preserved the property to take you on a journey back to a bygone era. It’s a timeless museum wedding venue where your love story can become the next chapter of its rich history.

The Mint includes three award-winning event spaces for your wedding day, two of which are located outside for the ultimate alfresco atmosphere. Couples are instantly drawn to the Sandstone Courtyard for its rustic pave stones and arched walkways which make a gorgeous backdrop to ceremonies and wedding photographs. The raised lawn introduces a refreshing green oasis that contrasts to the cooling stone setting. Long banqueting tables below festoon lights make a spellbinding scene for a dinner under the stars.

If you need a wet weather option, a stylish glass bar runs along the side of the Sandstone Courtyard for pre-dinner drinks and canapes. Your guests can then be led into the Gold Melting Room for an a la carte meal by the highly regarded Pearl Catering team. This is the largest function space on offer with state-of-the-art technology and an architecturally-designed curved wooden ceiling. It’s an inspiring example of how the venue seamlessly blends the old with the new. 

Top three things you’ll love about your Mint wedding:

  • The History. The Mint is the oldest surviving public building in Sydney that has housed a hospital and London’s first overseas branch of the Royal Mint. Sydney Living Museums has immaculately updated its heritage details with attractive contemporary finishes. 

  • The Versatility. The Mint has three desirable and flexible spaces for weddings, including a raised lawn, a sandstone courtyard and the Gold Melting Room inside. The dedicated events team would be delighted to discuss your plans and create a suitable event flow.

  • Photo Opportunities. You will never fall short of photo opportunities at The Mint. The historic Juliet balcony provides a picturesque moment and the way the light falls on the stone creates a warm flattering tone to every image. It’s a photographer’s paradise.

  • The Sandstone Courtyard is an open-air terrace surrounded by historic sandstone walls. The raised lawn sits at the centre, next to the stylish glass bar along one side.

We were 100% happy and were so accommodating for the rehearsal. There was quite a lot of rain and they handled everything well.

Stunning venue in a gorgeous old Sydney building with a wet weather option included in the package.

Absolutely loved The Mint, Sydney. It was absolutely perfect. The staff were absolutely excellent to us, all the lead up, anything we needed they helped us above and beyond. Could not be any happier with the venue. It was an absolute high-light of the day. Made for amazing photos and memories. Thank you to Rebecca and Caroline for being amazing in helping me organise the day.

I feel in love with this place as soon as I saw it. It is a hidden gem (as not many people know about this place). Although it is a bit pricey, the venue is elegant and beautiful. We took most of our wedding photos here as the venue offered so many different textures and backdrops.

Joe was awesome!!!! He was seamless (he has obviously done a few ceremonies) and kept us entertained, would have loved to have taken him to our reception! One of my guests fainted, and he was all over it! The venue is stunning, and created a great atmosphere in the courtyard.

We held our ceremony and reception at The Mint in April 2013. It is the perfect all-in-one wedding venue. The venue was private and secure, and so easy for all of our guests to get to. Kobi (our dedicated planner) and Joe (head of operations on the night) were amazing!

This was an incredible venue for our wedding and the staff were so accommodating. It was one of the first weddings in their space. It is the perfect mix of heritage architecture with modern design and it was a great space for the ceremony on grass in the courtyard and then a big party in the bar area.
