The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) situated perfectly at Circular Quay has a number of spaces which make this venue a great option for couples planning a wedding. Three of our favourite’s are The Foundation Hall, The Harbourside Room and The Quayside Room. This venue also makes the ideal location if you are considering using water transport between your ceremony and the reception with a wharf situated right by the front doors.
Events at the Foundation Hall are currently serviced by Culinary Edge Catering, and there is grandiose air about the art deco ballroom. Guests using this space can be treated to pre function drinks and canapes in the outdoor space which is usually occupied by Graze cafe. The view from the cafe is incredible with direct a direct Opera House aspect and the buzz of people walking along the foreshore.
The Harbourside and the Quayside Room are in stark contrast to the Foundation Hall. With a much more contemporary feel, the Harbourside and Quayside Room are located on the top floor of the building. Harbourside with a magnificent view of the Opera House and Bridge and Quayside with lovely (but obstructed) harbour views. Both of these spaces are serviced by Fresh Catering.
If you are looking for a blank canvas venue, then all 3 of these venues fit the bill. All of them are empty spaces until just prior to your event when the catering team places down your event tables and sets each one. This makes it great if you are thinking of doing something difference with the seating configuration, or wanting to do something as elaborate as a ceiling installation. We love to help couples plan MCA events, and would love to hear from you if you for any of your coordination or wedding planning requirements.
