If you’re looking for a contemporary, stylish venue then you should definitely look into Sergeant’s Mess. The decor and furniture is clean and elegant, complementing the stunning panoramic views of Chowder Bay.

Your guests can mingle in the separate bar area before entering the reception, and hang out on the balcony to enjoy the views. The bridal room at Sergeant’s Mess is probably the nicest I’ve seen in any Sydney wedding venue – the spacious room features large ornate red chairs and lounges which we’ve done whole bridal photo shoots on (a bonus on a rainy day).

Sergeant’s Mess also has a small lawn adjacent to it which is perfect for an intimate civil ceremony. I’ve also used the area a short walk down the road, for a bridal party shoot against the water and old buildings.
