About This Venue
Hello, we’re so glad you’ve found us. If you’re looking for a Sydney micro-wedding venue in a location like no other, welcome aboard.
Lilypad Palm Beach is a one-of-a-kind floating event space and accommodation with sustainability, craftsmanship, luxury and lifestyle at its core. It’s an intimate space to be shared with loved ones to make lifelong memories.
Permanently moored on the serene waters of Pittwater in Palm Beach, Lilypad promises nothing short of total personalisation. Our floating villa has been designed to be an escape from the everyday, and you and your guests will sense this from the moment they arrive at the wharf and are tendered across the water to Lilypad (with a crisp and delicious welcome drink awaiting their arrival).
We wholeheartedly believe that more intimate celebrations don’t mean events that are smaller in love, celebration or party – in fact, quite the opposite.
Our guests and couples gravitate to Lilypad because they’re wanting an ultra-special time with their very nearest and dearest. One where the vibe is relaxed, the food and beverage is of talk-about-for-weeks quality, the views are jaw-dropping and everyone can indulge in a meaningful day of pure escapism and deep connection. There’s no rushing about and plenty of time to truly enjoy your time with your special guests.
Get married on our lower ceremony deck, built to securely accomodate a beautiful arbour. Move to the upper deck to enjoy abundant canapés and drinks surrounded by your closest loved ones (perhaps with a live musician on board).
Our canapé style package consists of high cocktail tables and is more suitable for receptions of 17-22 guests to maximise the use of the outdoor area. Prepared by our private chef on-board, you can select two substantial and eight canapé options for you and your guests to enjoy in between the formalities.
Our seated reception arrangement includes long table dining set up on the upper deck and is suitable for wedding parties of 10-16 guests. The menu consists of either a three course sit down or shared menu.
At the end of the celebration, your guests and Lilypad staff will depart via a private tender back to shore, leaving you completely to yourselves to enjoy the pure luxury of the floating villa overnight, should you choose to stay on board.

Owner / Manager
Lilypad has been lovingly designed by owner and craftsman Chuck Anderson – a marine engineer who grew up sailing and wanted the often inaccessible experience of an home experience on the water to be more widely available to others.
In building Lilypad, Chuck wanted to pay homage to the unspoiled natural environment in which Lilypad resides and allow guests to feel totally immersed in an awe-inspiring space that not only is beautiful to be in but, very importantly, has a firm focus on sustainability.
