Matilda Bay is undoubtedly one of the most popular wedding reception venues in Perth. Perhaps the most well located areas on the swan river. Matilda Bay reserve stretches for at least a kilometre along the shores of the river and is adorned with beautiful eucalyptus tress, winding footpaths, picnic areas and barbeque facilities to service the many people who are chasing a relaxed, peaceful and ambient day out on the shores of the iconic and beautiful swan river. It is no surprise people flock here on the weekends because of it’s beauty. Equally so, it is no surprise that this is a super popular location to tie the knot. You simply cannot beat the natural landscape as a background for photographs of your special day, especially with the river and it’s reflections of the city. I have done many ceremonies at this location for the simple reason that it is so serene and picturesque.
Matilda Bay offers two options of reception rooms to accommodate different tastes and guest numbers. Firstly the Catalina room. This option holds between 20 and 50 guests, (cocktail up to 90) and is a quaint little room which opens out into the beautiful courtyard overlooking the shoreline. This is a truly peaceful feel, especially if you book in the summertime as the outdoor area really captures the essence of the beautifully peaceful Swan River at this time of year. If you are unlucky with the weather, don’t despair, a marquee can be provided to utilize the extra area and performs great as a dancefloor.
The larger of the two rooms is the Roe room. With a well designed all glass 180 degree view of the stunning river, it also boasts an ambient feel of sea birds, a gentle lapping shoreline and beautiful peppermint trees. Upstairs from the restaurant, this room accommodates up to 140 guests and as the function room is used for not only wedding receptions but many corporate events, the staff are a well oiled machine and very professional and experienced in giving you what you would expect to receive from such a sought after venue.
As a professional wedding entertainer for many years in Perth, I have played at this venue countless times and would say it ranks in the top 5 venues for weddings. So if your looking for both wedding entertainment and a wedding venue, why not book Tod Woodward, The Dinner Singer for your wedding.
