An iconic location

What sets Watersedge at Campbell’s Stores apart from the multitude of wedding venues that Sydney has to offer? Madeleine Silva proudly states, “We are home to some of Sydney’s most intimate weddings, where global and interstate family and friends gather in awe of the unparalleled views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.” It’s the panoramic vistas that create a breathtaking backdrop for couples, setting the stage for an unforgettable celebration of love.


Breathtaking architecture

But it’s not just the view that makes Watersedge stand out. The venue itself is a masterpiece of architecture. “Award-winning architect Johnson Pilton Walker has meticulously restored and transformed the venue,” Silva explains. “Weaving modern materials like glass and steel into the historic sandstone and timber structure.” This harmonious blend of old and new ensures that, regardless of the season or theme, the heritage spaces within the venue can be transformed into a couple’s dream wedding.

A professional and passionate crew

For the team at Watersedge at Campbell’s Stores, being in the wedding industry isn’t just a job; it’s a passion. “We love learning about the couples’ love stories, especially how they met,” Silva shares. “Then bringing our couples’ vision to life at our venue and watching it unfold. Creating a special day for our beautiful couples and their guests to remember makes being in the wedding industry wonderful.”


A finger on the pulse of new trends

In an ever-evolving industry, it’s crucial to stay attuned to trends. Madeleine Silva observes a significant shift in recent times. “Couples are scaling down their guest list to enjoy a more intimate experience with close family and friends,” she notes. “Couples have found that they are able to create a more lasting experience for their guests with the wedding of their dreams that doesn’t blow their budget.”

A NYE celebration

When asked about memorable moments, Silva recounts one of Watersedge’s most unforgettable weddings. “One of the most memorable weddings at our venue would have to be the reception hosted on NYE. This wedding not only celebrated their love but also the entering of the new year, with the famous Sydney Harbour fireworks.” The stunning fireworks display perfectly captured the high emotions and spectacle of the evening, creating a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Advice from the Watersedge team to you

For couples seeking advice on selecting a wedding venue, Silva suggests considering an inclusive package. “We would recommend selecting a venue with an inclusive package, meaning less for the couple to organise themselves, usually at a higher cost.” This can alleviate much of the stress associated with wedding planning, allowing couples to focus on what truly matters – their love and the celebration thereof.

Madeleine Silva offers a final piece of wisdom. “There is no such thing as a traditional wedding anymore,” she asserts. “Create a unique wedding to both of you as no two couples are the same.”
