Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is an iconic Sydney waterfront wedding venue that has squeezed everything good about Australia into one stylish space. Here, you’ll find a carefully curated drinks list, plenty of tasty tucker and million dollar views of the harbour.

But don’t just take our word for it – you can experience all that Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel has to offer at their upcoming showcase. All the deets on how to register are below!

What do you think sets Watsons Bay Hotel apart from other venues?

Glad you asked. In a nutshell:

  • The view – people from far and wide come here to sit back and soak in the uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour (preferably with a drink in hand).
  • The aesthetics – our entire venue is reminiscent of a luxury, Hamptons-style home with minimalist colours and statement white furniture showcased throughout the Sunset Room and the Top Deck.
  • The all-in-one location. You can host your bridal party here the night before, enjoy a energy-dense wedding breakfast, get ready in the hotel’s bridal suite, walk to your ceremony, host your reception back on-site and spend your first night as a couple in the same place. It saves a lot of money on transfers and makes  it easy for your bridal party and guests.

How would you describe the overall vibe of weddings held at Watsons Bay Hotel?

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel oozes a relaxed yet sophisticated, beach vibe. It’s luxurious, simple and chic. We pride ourselves on customising not just the menu but the entire wedding experience for our couples – we want them to have a great night and feel reassured that we’ve got every detail covered.

What are the details on this showcase we hear of?

We’d love for couples to come along and see what Watsons Bay Weddings is all about. We know many people have seen the space previously but not in this setting. The venue will be transformed into a truly magical space with every aspect of our venue (accommodation rooms, bridal suite, Sunset Room and Top Deck) given a ‘wedding makeover’ along with a mock ceremony set up.

They’ll also be plenty to eat and drink, with our famous antipasto experience on display and delicious drinks from our new Bubble Bar. We don’t want guests to think of this as a boring showcase – we want couples to come in and enjoy themselves, grab a drink and soak in the view!

This showcase isn’t just for weddings either – it’s also worthwhile for people looking for somewhere to host a hens, bucks, birthday, high tea or any sort of celebration or get together.

How do couples sign up to come along?

Registration is essential, guests need to head here.
