About the idyllic waterfront scene at Walsh Bay

Pier One Sydney Harbour weddings are surrounded by breathtaking vistas of Walsh Bay and Sydney Harbour, and the hotel’s undiscovered setting is a secret worth knowing about. Tucked beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge, your guests will get a unique view of its incredible steel structure from under the arch, and it’s possible to see it from above too, via the beloved Sydney BridgeClimb attraction. From the scenic jetty, you and your guests can board a private ferry to cruise around the glorious Sydney Harbour and see the best architectural sites like the recognisable Sydney Opera House. They also might be interested in barding a boat to Manly after the wedding, where the beautiful beaches are a picturesque spot for swimming and picnics in the sand. Over the bridge and into North Sydney, guests can also enjoy the thrilling rides at Luna Park Sydney if they’ve decided to stay for the weekend.

There are plenty of ceremony spots at Pier One Sydney Harbour that are sought after for their picturesque waterfront setting. The Dawes Point Room and the Water Room are ideal for those who would like to marry inside the hotel, but the edge of the pier and the Bridge Marquee are the most popular ceremony sites. These outdoor spaces are naturally lit, and serenaded by the soothing sounds of the water lapping at the jetty. They make a phenomenal photo backdrop, and they bring a bright and breezy feel to the wedding ceremony. If you are hoping for a traditional church destination for the service, then Garrison Church Sydney and St Brigid’s Church are just a short walk from the venue.

Pier One Sydney Harbour weddings are known and praised for their 5-star hotel accommodation. Each of the 189 rooms feature indulgent bedding, deluxe furnishings and large outdoor balconies overlooking Walsh Bay and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. They are also fitted with desirable amenities like complimentary wifi, espresso machines, mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs and 24-hour room service. If your guests opt for bedroom upgrades, they might also include whirlpool baths, separate living areas and pet-friendly access to the pier. Pier One Sydney Harbour hotel will make your guests feel well-rested and replenished after an action-packed wedding weekend.
