HARBOUR ISLAND

Harbour Island Wedding and boat trip
From +$800

Combine your Kiss Me Quick Bronze or Silver marriage ceremony with a trip around Sydney Harbour and a visit to one of the harbour islands, one of Sydney's most memorable experiences.

We start from Circular Quay, or from Bradfield Park at Milsons Point with its panoramic views of Sydney - an ideal chance for you to arrive early and get some wedding photos with the city's iconic views behind you. Bradfield Park is easy to get to by train, ferry, bus or car with plenty of easy on-street parking right by the park.

Then your private water taxi will take you to one of Sydney's beautiful harbour islands. Clark Island is only accessible by private boat so often we have the whole island to ourselves!

We'll disembark for your marriage ceremony, and you can pick your ceremony spot on the island's lush lawns. There'll be time for photographs and a brief exploration of the island before we return to the boat.

Then the boat will continue to Farm Cove, close to Sydney Opera House for more photography opportunities from the deck. The boat has a fully enclosed cabin with large windows. Your guests can enjoy the iconic views from the panoramic windows or the open deck. Feel free to BYO for a champagne toast!

The trip lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The price is based on a group of 10 and includes the National Park landing fee. Extra guests can be accommodated, up to a total of 25 people, with an extra fee per person.

FAQ

Where does the boat pick us up from?

Pick up and from drop off is from Circular Quay, or from Jeffrey Street Wharf, Kirribilli.

How many people can come?

10 people (including the marrying couple but not the Celebrant) are included in the fee. The maximum group size is 25. Extra people are charged at $37 per person.

How big is the boat?

The boat is a medium sized water taxi with seats for everyone. There are panoramic glass windows all around for views. You are welcome to go outside on the deck for photographs both during the cruise and when we pause for photo opportunities. The deck can accommodate around 10 people at a time.

During the journey you are welcome to move around the cabin but travel across the harbour can sometimes be choppy, so it's always best to stay seated when possible.

Are there any accessibility issues on the boat?

Boarding is via the front deck and the boat has several steps from the deck into the cabin. Some landings use a front ramp with no handrail. We do not recommend this type of boat wedding if you have very elderly guests or those with mobility issues. The boat skipper is responsible for everyone's comfort and safety on board and they have the final decision to allow or deny boarding. So please advise us in advance if you think issues may arise.

Can we play our own music on the boat?

The boat is equipped with Bluetooth audio if you wish to play music during the cruise.

Can we BYO?

Yes. However, only plastic glasses are permitted.

How long do we spend on the island and on the water?

After pick up we go straight to the island and disembark for 30 minutes for the wedding ceremony and some photographs. The remaining 45 minutes is on the harbour and includes a stop at Farm Cove for photos by the Opera House.

What facilities are there on the island?

There are toilet facilities available.

What style of wedding will it be?

Kiss Me Quick ceremonies on the island are short and simple but also memorable and meaningful. Keeping it simple and easy means we do not include music, wedding parties, an entrance etc and we do not have chairs, decorations or styling. We gather everyone together, get to the point and get you married!

What should we wear?

You are welcome to dress as formally or informally as you wish. Please dress for the weather conditions.

Can we add the Ceremony Styling package to this trip?

The styling package is not available for this location.

What happens in bad weather?

The nature of this style of wedding means it is dependent on the weather. While we hope for the ideal blue skies and sunshine, in choosing this option, you accept the risk of unfavourable weather. If a wedding in such conditions is a major concern, this is not the best choice for you. Clearly, we cannot accept responsibility for the weather!

In severe weather, the boat operator may make the call to cancel the cruise if it's unsafe to go out on the harbour. If this happens, we will discuss alternative options and associated fee variations with you depending on the circumstances. These could include:

- Rescheduling to another day (subject to availability)
- Moving your ceremony to a different venue of your choosing

In unfavourable weather, the cruise will continue as planned. You can choose to:

- Hold your ceremony inside the boat
- Continue with the island landing and use umbrellas
- Change to an alternative island where there is cover (subject to availability)

If you decide to cancel the cruise, there is no refund.
