Weddings at InterContinental Sydney

InterContinental Sydney weddings are extraordinary occasions, prepared and perfected by a visionary collective of event professionals. They’ll give you the ultimate flexibility to tailor every last wedding detail and help you to think outside the box if you are looking to try something different. From floating cakes and chandelier installations to enchanting dry ice dessert bars, their creativity has no limits.

The Scene at InterContinental Sydney Hotel

InterContinental Sydney has long reigned as one of the city’s most sought-after wedding destinations. Known for its iconic grand sandstone arches and proximity to the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, the venue bears all the hallmarks of timeless grandeur and luxury amenities.

Located within a heritage-listed Treasury Building that dates back to 1852, this breathtaking building is home to six event spaces. At Intercontinental Sydney, timeless is not synonymous with antiquated; the rooms vary in style from modern penthouses and contemporary suites to traditional ballrooms.

With awe-inspiring heritage interiors and versatile floor plans, let your imagination take the lead and design a spectacular reception with as much or as little decoration as you wish.

There are plenty of photo opportunities in and around the hotel, too. Indoors, the soaring sandstone archways, marble staircases, and the hotel’s exquisite Italian Portico as backdrops will inspire you. Other nearby local photoshoot spots include The Rocks and the Royal Botanic Gardens, where the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge are in view.

The experienced events team will treat you and your guests to attentive service, ensuring they accommodate your every need. They make it their top priority to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch. This attention to detail includes its world-class catering service; the InterContinental culinary team create bespoke menus for various dietary and cultural dining requests.

There’s no need to hail a cab at the end of the night; the InterContinental is a luxury 5-star hotel. Offering 509 stylish guest rooms and 28 high-end suites, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to wedding night accommodation. We suggest booking yourself and your wedding parties into a suite on the eve of your wedding, indulging in a night of pampering and gourmet room service. You can get ready on the morning of your wedding just floors above your ceremony space!

InterContinental Sydney Hotel Wedding Ceremonies

The InterContinental Sydney team emphasise creating stress-free experiences for their couples, beginning with the lead up to your ceremony. They provide an inclusive all-in-one wedding package, assuring you get everything you need for your ceremony.

With a selection of all-weather ceremony spaces within the venue, you can feel confident that temperamental weather won’t affect your vows. However, if you’re keen to brave the elements, there are several outdoor ceremony locations within walking distance of the InterContinental.

If garden wedding romance inspires you, the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens is a popular nearby ceremony alternative. Amongst the lush gardens and dreamy florals, you and your guests will gather on the green oasis surrounded by skyscrapers.

If you’re craving a coastal affair, The Rocks Precinct offers ceremony locations with harbour views, waterfront location, and beautiful old churches. Whilst you’re out in the city, you can hit some of Sydney’s iconic landmarks for wedding snaps whilst your guests head back to the InterContinental for some post-reception cocktails and canapes.

InterContinental Sydney Hotel Wedding Receptions

Receptions at Intercontinental Sydney are lavish affairs set within a heritage building with high ceilings and art deco features. The venue is so spectacular that it requires almost no additional decor. That’s not to say that the InterContinental team doesn’t love a couple with a vision; if you have a grand plan for unique furnishings and special decor, the dedicated event planners want to see it come to life.

Depending on the theme of your wedding, you may find that one of InterContinental’s more vintage-inspired event spaces suits your aesthetic. The Hermitage and Grevillea Rooms have preserved their 19th Century origins with regal pillars, opulent furnishings, and period details.

However, if you’re seeking a space that feels more modern, the spectacular Boronia Ballroom is a stunner. This beautifully versatile space is a grand full-floor ballroom and events centre with a state-of-the-art audio-visual system, perfect for couples who want to put on a show.

Venue Testimonials

I just had my wedding here in the treasury room. It was an amazing event with fantastic service and food. The hotel and treasury room are gorgeous. We also got the harbour view room which was amazing to stay in! The events coordinators also do everything they can to ensure everything is perfect and runs smoothly.


The best venue for conference. I've been there for many conferences and each time I was amazed with its beauty.

My company recently celebrated our Christmas party in one of the private rooms. Everything was great. Staff very friendly and the food was great. Obviously very easy to get to and a stones throw from the quay and opera house. Would happily recommend.
