23 Dec Gunners Barracks Tea Rooms
Address: Suakin Drive Mosman
Phone: (02) 8962 5900
With a rich history, luxurious interiors and sweeping views, the Gunners Barracks Tea Room is a beautiful wedding venue nestled within the bushland of Georges Head, Mosman.
Originally constructed in 1873 by colonial architect James Barnet, it’s had many uses over the last 150 years – but we think its current role as a wedding venue is the best one yet. Today, the sandstone building commands spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, Camp Cove, Watsons Bay and Rose Bay, resulting in stunning Gunners Barracks wedding photos.
There’s no better way to enhance the venue’s atmosphere than with live music. We recommend around 6.5 hours of music – 1.5 hours to cover your ceremony and pre-dinner drinks, followed by five hours at the reception.
If you’re considering hiring Something Borrowed to perform at your Gunners Barracks wedding, here’s what you need to know:
Capacity: An intimate space, the Gunner Barracks Tea Room wedding venue only seats a maximum of 130 people. Since space is at a premium, live music has to be well planned.
Wedding Ceremony: Ceremonies take place either in the stone courtyard, on the front balcony, or on the stunning Georges Head Lookout, which is a five-minute walk away from the Gunners Barracks Tea Room wedding venue. (The lookout is also a fantastic spot for your Gunners Barracks wedding photos!)
Wedding Reception: Following the ceremony, guests will be directed to the main balcony overlooking the water. Live music will continue on the balcony until you’re ready to move into the dining room for dinner. Since space at a premium in the main dining area, our musicians remain on the balcony and play through the doorway into the room – which ensures plenty of room for your guests, without sacrificing the sound quality.
Once it’s time to let loose, dancing takes place either in the side room or out in the stone courtyard. (Please note that due to noise restrictions, the band must play inside.)
Most Gunners Barracks wedding receptions start around 6pm and finish up by midnight.
