Wedding ceremony, reception or both

Host your wedding ceremony, reception or both at the Art Gallery. We’ll work with you to create an event – whatever the size or style – that reflects you and celebrates your relationship.

Our restaurant or function room can host: 

  • up to 116 seated guests

  • up to 180 guests for a cocktail-style event.

For larger weddings, these two event spaces can be combined to accommodate more guests. 

Additional event spaces are available to hire from January 2023 in our stunning new building, designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning Tokyo-based architects SANAA for the Sydney Modern Project

These breathtaking new spaces can host up to 250 guests for a banquet reception or 350 guests for a cocktail-style event.

Premium catering

If you’re wanting to simply enjoy your wedding day without having to worry about the countless moving parts, then you’ll be pleased to know we also provide a premium catering service

You’ll also be making a difference

Venue hire at the Art Gallery contributes to bringing art to the community by funding Gallery programs. When you choose us for your wedding, you’ll be directly supporting the arts in Australia.
