About The Venue

Doltone House Group are one of Sydney’s leading event space companies. You will find many popular wedding venues in their portfolio including Doltone House Darling Island, Doltone House Hyde Park, and of course, Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf.

Just around the corner from Darling Harbour, Jones Bay Wharf is found on the foreshore of Sydney harbour in Pyrmont. The heritage wharf has industrial origins and this makes the interior and exterior of the waterfront venue a favourite of ours.

Previously known as Jones Bay Finger Wharf, it was completed in 1919. Many wedding portraits of the newlyweds and bridal party have been taken here with the double row of two storey-ed steel and timber sheds with central roadways and rail tracks serving as a backdrop.

On the full length outdoor decking area, you and your guests can easily see the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour. For smaller weddings of less than 80 guests, you can fit an entire wedding ceremony on the upper deck of Jones Bay Wharf.

Specific to wedding receptions, Doltone House has two distinct event spaces for consideration: (i) Heritage Wharf, and (ii) The Loft.

The Heritage Wharf can be partitioned into smaller individual spaces but in its entirety, it is a versatile space that can cater for up to 1,000 guests. Even when partitioned into South Pier and North Pier sections, you can still enjoy the grandeur of 5m high ceilings and the freedom and openness that a pillar-less function space offers.

The slightly bigger of the two partitioned spaces, the South Pier measures 30m x 14m and can seat 340 guests while the North Pier (20m x 14m) caters for 250 seated guests in a banquet configuration.

The Loft is a multi-level space ideal for smaller wedding receptions. It can seat up to 160 pax and the accompanying private outdoor deck has the best view of the harbour bridge.

Jones Bay Wharf is accessibly by boat, water taxi, light rail (alight at The Star), ferry or private transport.

Directly opposite to the building on Pirrama Road is a Wilson Parking complex. WedTipding guests may have their parking ticket validated for a special rate. Alternatively, the taxi rank at The Star is a short 5-minute walk away.

A Bonus Gift From Us To You

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and stressful. We always recommend to our couples to hire a professional wedding planner to make the months and days leading up to your big day stress-free. But we understand that a wedding planner is not for everyone.

Comparing wedding venues can be difficult. There are hundreds of variables and it can be challenging to keep a track of things.

For this reason, we created this FREE wedding reception comparison tool to make your wedding planning a whole lot easier (and even enjoyable).

Our Review As Wedding Photographers & Videographers

When you think of Australia, Sydney comes to mind. And what makes Sydney iconic is its beautiful harbour. Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf delivers that in spades.

The high ceilings in the Heritage Wharf deliver a sense of grandeur and the bigness of the wedding venue allows us to capture critical moments throughout the night with mood lighting.

The sunlight at golden hour hits the finger wharf particularly well and as wedding photographers and wedding videographers, we always love it when we can give our clients wedding day memories wrapped in a warm romantic glow.
