Here at G&S we live for beautiful venues. Our collective hearts skip a beat when our clients invite us to style gorgeous new spaces. The sheer number of venues in Sydney can be overwhelming, so lucky for you we have compiled a list of our 8 most loved - perfect for weddings, Christmas parties (that’s right we just dropped the c word – it’s just around the corner), corporate events or just because.
BETA BAR Top of the list the magnificent Beta Bar, if we could marry a venue this would be it! Set in the heart of Sydney CBD, Beta Bar serves the most delish Greek inspired food and cocktails thanks to executive chef Peter Conistis. The space is the epitome of inner city chic with beautiful high ceilings and exposed brick juxtaposed by the most luxe, ornate bespoke furnishings.
SEACLIFF HOUSE If you want to get out the hustle and bustle of Sydney on your wedding day this is the ideal place. Katie (Smee) is a big fan for two truly compelling reasons; first because it’s straight up amazing and second, she can fit in a sneaky surf after setting up at one of Kiama’s beautiful beaches. Seacliff House is a romantic blank canvas lending itself to a world of possibilities, from utilising their rustic barn with unforgettable views, to bringing in your own tee-pees or simply enjoying the gorgeous open space.
LA PORTE SPACE Talk about a luxury event space! La Porte Space is a restored 1930’s heritage building featuring multiple stunning minimalist Scandinavian designed studios and spaces. This space is every event stylist’s dream, perfect for cocktail parties, media dinners and corporate events.
BLUE ROOM is a long-loved favourite of ours, set in our very own backyard overlooking the one and only Bondi Beach. The space is ideal for weddings, with breathtaking floor to ceiling views of the ocean and a bright, airy but cosy feel. We would recommend booking the court yard to enjoy sunset drinks and canapes, embracing the sparkling ocean outlook then heading up to the main room to dance the night away.
THREE BLUE DUCKS Can’t decide if you want a convenient city wedding or a lush farm wedding? Well this is your answer, offering the best of both worlds. Three Blue Ducks is an urban warehouse located in Sydney’s inner city. With a stunning garden and covered outdoor deck space there are many options for an onsite ceremony. The venue is stunning and easily tailored for any style. Oh, did we mention the food is incredible?! We’re getting hungry just talking at it, fully licensed and seasonal sustainable food!
THE STUDIO is Three blue ducks next door neighbour, and thanks to the owner, interior stylist Megan Mortorn, the space is nothing short of amazing. High ceiling and a completely blank canvas. The Studio allows you to self-cater and us to style without limits, essentially it is perfect if you want to do something different and absolutely perfect for hanging installations. Couples have been married in the driveway – stunning!
BOY CHARLTON The iconic Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool is breath taking! It’s a historical site located on the fringe of the Royal Botanic Gardens facing Woollomooloo Bay. The venue has stunning views of the harbourside. It’s a perfect spot for an intimate but unique inner city wedding with endless potential.
THE RESIDENCES Centennial Park has a soft spot in our hearts, with so many of our beautiful couples choosing to be married here. The Residences are two historic homes built in the 1880’s that will leave you in awe. Perfect for bespoke garden weddings with an added bonus of providing on site bridal accommodation.
