The Boathouse Shelly Beach Weddings
Located on the iconic and unique west-facing Shelly Beach in Manly, The Boathouse wedding and event space are set on the upper level of The Boathouse.
Offering spectacular waterfront views and a private beachside setting for your special occasion, The Boathouse is perfect for a wedding reception, suited to both lunch and dinner events. The Boathouse chefs and the collective team ensure fresh modern Australian cuisine, excellent service, and exciting, unique experience for every guest. Guests arrive through the garden and walk up the timber boardwalk to the private event space upstairs, adorned with The Boathouse eclectic interiors and fresh flowers.
With interiors by owner Pip Goldsmith, The Boathouse Shelly Beach event space is decorated with abundant, bright floral displays on the side tables around the room, gorgeous plants, and fresh fruit displays. The space is light and spacious, with an open plan design from the marble bar to the outdoor deck. Featuring our green striped wallpaper and The Boathouse fish paintings, the venue is full of character and will create a memorable beachside and sophisticated experience for every guest.
