Weddings at Milestone Events Sydney

It’s easy to see why Milestone Events is touted as one of Sydney’s most unique wedding venues. Just 5 minutes from Manly Beach, Milestone Events combines traditional and art deco elements into one stunning venue.

Featuring a heritage-listed ballroom, a cosy lounge area, and multiple ceremony locations, this iconic space can be exclusively hired so you and your guests can enjoy maximum privacy. Despite the secluded feel, Milestone Events is easily accessible by public transport and offers onsite parking.

The Scene at Milestone Events Sydney

As a family-run events venue, the Milestone Events team put their whole heart into each wedding that finds a home in their space. This is evident in the meticulous upkeep of the 1930s traditional brick building, the glorious ballroom, and the manicured gardens that surround the building.

The team have designed comprehensive wedding packages that include everything you’ll need for a seamless wedding, including:

  • Exclusive hire of the venue
  • Styling pieces
  • Lectern and microphone
  • Cushioned chairs
  • Table dressing

Upon touring the exterior of Milestone Events, your eye will quickly land on the perfect ceremony spot. As the venue is perched on the crest of the North Head Sanctuary, the most exciting (and most photographed) spot is on the lawn, a short 7-minute stroll away, with the vast harbour and city silhouette behind you. The other stunning ceremony spot is in the gardens, surrounded by gorgeous native flora and fauna.

Whilst you’re off snapping breathtaking wedding photos, Milestone Events servers can begin delivering hot or cold canapes and a glass of bubbles to your guests as they play lawn games. This can be enjoyed out on the grounds or after they’re invited back to up to the building. When you return from photos, touch up your hair and makeup (or shimmy into a dazzling reception outfit) in your private bridal suite.

The Milestone Events team comprises head chef Marion Jane, her husband, Miles, and their daughter, Tessa. With their combined decades of experience in the events and wedding industries, they operate as an organic and efficient unit.

From your first venue visit to the post-wedding wrap-up, you’ll experience a personal, caring, and collaborative relationship with the team. They are passionate about delivering exceptional service to the couple and every guest who visits Milestone Events.

Milestone Events Sydney Wedding Ceremonies

Milestone Events’ couples have access to breathtaking ceremony and photography backdrops with unmatched views over Sydney Harbour just a 7-minute walk away or nestled within their stunning gardens. With both private gardens and clifftop vistas on offer, it’s clear why the majority of Milestone Events couples opt for outdoor ceremonies.

Imagine rows of chairs divided by a crisp white aisle runner, a timber arbour framing the crashing waves in the harbour. The sea breeze flutters your hair around your face, gently rustling through the native shrubbery that borders the clifftop clearing. You exchange vows under the wide-open sky with the distant ocean the soundtrack to your union. Sandwiches and mocktails keep your guests satisfied whilst you’re snapping formal photos.

Perhaps you prefer a more ethereal experience, saying your vows beneath towering native trees and flowering plants in the private gardens. A fairytale romance comes into full bloom before a beautiful arbour draped in silk floral arrangements. Your guests are served sandwiches and mocktails to celebrate as you head off for photos.

Milestone Events Sydney Wedding Receptions

Heading into the building, past the handsome timber bar and across the polished wood floors, you’ll enter the heritage ballroom. Long and spacious, the ballroom is a naturally lit space that offers multiple seating arrangements and layouts.

Depending on the size of your guest list, you can opt to divide the room into two separate areas. The smaller room can act as a breakout space for guests who want to relax, as a kid’s retreat, or as the dancing area.

Venue Testimonials

My husband and I had our wedding at Milestone on what was probably the hottest day this year at 42 degrees! Miles, Tessa and the team were so accommodating and allowed our guests to go straight from the outside ceremony and into the air-conditioned reception area where they were kept hydrated. The staff were very attentive and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly!

Sonia B ·

Not only were they all accomodating with all the changes, they also checked in on our well-being numerous times throughout the year which made us stress less about the whole thing knowing our wedding was in such safe hands.
