Weddings

If you’re looking for a heritage Sydney wedding venue steeped in romance and character, the University of Sydney hosts some of the most beautiful spots to get married in Sydney. Choose from our Mediterranean Courtyard, Cottage Lawns, the regal Refectory, or our boutique meeting rooms for your ceremony and reception.  With spacious grounds or beautiful interiors, each venue is the perfect canvas for your own vision.

Host your reception in our Refectory, a regal banquet hall with its lofty eight-metre-high ceilings and striking mural. With the sunlight streaming through the lofty French windows and falling around the classic panelling, saying your vows will feel truly special. You can fit 500 guests in a cocktail set-up, or 220 for a classic banquet style. The adjoining terrace and garden are ideal for enjoying pre-wedding drinks. For the perfect spot to say an intimate ‘I do’, we love the fuss-free approach of streamlining your ceremony and reception in the beautiful Cottage Lawns.

At HostCo, your wedding day is about the two of you. Our venues accommodate laidback get-togethers or extravagant celebration – an urban haven among the wedding venues Inner West Sydney has up for offer.

Outdoor Weddings

 

The natural beauty of our outdoor spaces mean you can go all out in your decorations, or minimal and understated in your approach. For your garden wedding dreams, the lush topiary of our manicured Cottage Lawns will leave your photographer spoilt for choice when capturing your special moments.

This garden wedding venue holds 50 guests theatre-style for an idyllic ceremony in the larger front lawn, or 150 in a sprawling cocktail set-up across both lawns for an outdoor wedding reception. For live music and alfresco dining, our Mediterranean-style Colonnade is the perfect space for cocktails and bar stations. Your guests can weave in and out of the upstairs Terrace, where we have the capacity for 100 guests in a cocktail set-up – or you can live out your dream of bringing all your guests together in a long table affair. Or sip cocktails and dance under the lights in the paved Courtyard, our biggest outdoor space that fits 500 guests in a cocktail set-up.

Trawling through all the outdoor wedding venues Sydney presents can be overwhelming. HostCo will work with you to make a one-of-a-kind and stress-free wedding – think plenty of light, versatile spaces, and excellent food. Our outdoor venues for hire can hold both a ceremony and reception, or you can easily transition between areas to your fancy.

Aside from our wide range of outdoor spaces, we also have versatile indoor meeting rooms and banquet halls to choose from. The Sutherland Room hosts intimate weddings for 70 guests, with a gorgeous view of the university’s historic grounds and entrance. Our interconnected spaces mean that guests can have canapés in the Drawing Room, before moving onto a party in the Refectory. Or you can set up different stages of your day by letting your guests move from the stunning alfresco Colonnade to the upstairs Terrace. These venues are private and set aside for your exclusive use. Our experienced catering team will also be on hand to help you plan your day to the tiniest detail.
