Sydney Harbour Escapes 2010 Wedding Kit Planning your special day? Hi, I’m Michellin your Sydney Harbour Escapes Wedding Coordinator. I will be taking you through the entire planning process of your Wedding. Sydney Harbour Escapes has a wide range of different venues to suit all types of weddings from a small intimate wedding to a much larger scale formal wedding accommodating up to 800 guests. We represent a fleet of around 60 different charter boats on Sydney Harbour, which makes us the eyes and ears of the industry. I can make your job of finding the best venue simple. After we find out your needs we can compare different boats, prices and extras to get the best deal for you, free of charge. If you are uncertain of what you’re looking for I can help you. I myself have been working in the industry for over 10 years, and am happy to make suggestions to make your wedding day a special and unforgettable one. I will also liaise with you to organise any extras you may require such as catering & beverages, arranging a wedding ceremony, cakes, flowers, entertainment, decorations, photographer/videographers, wedding night packages. I have listed some of our available vessels below for you to browse and compare. Whilst I’ve tried to make the information as user-friendly as possible, please feel free to contact us in the office with any further queries. Yours Sincerely,

Frequently Asked Questions What are the minimum and maximum number of guests I can have on board your vessels? There are no minimum numbers! If you and your partner wish to be on board alone with the skipper and celebrant, we can organise the perfect intimate venue for your wedding day. Conversely, the largest of our boats, Starship Sydney, can hold 800 guests for a cocktail wedding, and we have everything in between! What is the minimum length of charter? This varies with each venue. Typically, the minimum is three or four hours, unless you’re booking a Wedding Transfer package, available on some of our vessels. If you wish to have the ceremony on board, we recommend a five hour charter, anything less can feel very rushed. What do you recommend for the wedding ceremony? Our boats can stop in a number of beautiful locations around the Harbour for your wedding ceremony. Some of these include Farm Cove, immediately in front of the Opera House, or Athol Bay near Taronga Zoo. We can recommend one of our preferred boats for wedding so you can have total confidence the ceremony will be not only custom designed but just perfect! Can the boat be decorated for the wedding and what options are there for floral arrangements? Yes. We work closely with our preferred florist to organise the perfect arrangements, as costeffectively as possible. What catering options do you have? Again, this varies between boats but normally each boat will have a range of canapé, buffet & formal dining menus which they can provide. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements as quotes can often be tailored to these needs. Can we order a Wedding Cake? Personalised and delicious wedding cakes are available by quotation. Can you recommend a photographer/ videograher? We will put you in touch with some of our favourite photographers if you require. Can you suggest options for the wedding night? If you choose, you can stay on board some of our boats. There's nothing quite as wonderful as being gently rocked to sleep and waking to the peaceful lap of water on the boat’s hull. Can we inspect the boat? Yes. We welcome you aboard to view the vessel and discuss you wedding options. Please phone us to arrange an appointment.
What are your preferred pick up and drop off locations? Our boats can pick up and drop off at most public and private wharves in Sydney Harbour. Please check to see whether your preferred location is feasible. Can I BYO on your boats? We do have some vessels that will allow you to BYO either food and/or drinks. Please request the BYO option at the time of enquiry and we will be able to suggest suitable vessels. Sample Itinerary, 4 hour charter 6.15 pm Guests Arrive at Man O War Steps, Opera House 6.30 pm Guests board vessel and are greeted with drinks and canapĂŠs on arrival.
