We Visit MV EPICURE
Our venues manager Yvonne boarded MV EPICURE to find out more about this incredible Sydney wedding venue...she shares her experience here:
So it was a balmy 23 degree day in stunning Sydney, the
perfect weather to view the epic new MV EPICURE moored at Jones Bay Wharf. It
was all hands on deck on board with lots of unpacking going on!
I met with Vadawn Buhler who is the Sales and Events
Manager for MV EPICURE and she showed me around this amazing new vessel that
was built in Brisbane and arrived in Sydney a few weeks ago.
I boarded on the middle deck which is the main area for a
sit down event for up to 300 people. Floor-to-ceiling tinted glass surrounds
this deck with doors opening onto the front of the ship, which is the perfect
space for wedding ceremonies. There is a bar on this level and a surround sound
system that is designed so that no DJ is required. The dance floor runs through
the middle of this level with guests seated along both sides.
Next we went upstairs to the area designed for pre-dinner
canapés which is decked out with gorgeous huge contemporary arm chairs and lounges.
Another bar is found at the back of this deck. It is a gorgeous space ideal for
guests to unwind while on deck and can also be used as the dancing area so that the downstairs deck can be used for just the meals. The huge glass doors on either side of
this deck slide all the way open to create the illusion of no windows but
instead a huge open air area overlooking the harbour.
I was taken downstairs to view the green room that can be
used for the bridal party to catch their breath or freshen up. I also viewed
the wedding suite which boasts showers for the bride and groom and the bridal
party and a huge area of lounges where the newlyweds can just escape for a few
moments of peace as husband and wife.
MV EPICURE is one of the most impressive boats I’ve ever
been on. It is absolutely state of the art and lacks nothing required to
produce the most amazing meals ever. EPICURE the brand is a catering and events company, based in Victoria, synonymous with excellence in food creation for any
event. The galley has been designed and created with this in mind.
Vadawn explained that MV EPICURE offers more than many venues because the food is second to none. Their events are all about
excellent food, and for this reason they target foodie couples who want to
impress their guests with an amazing menu.
Having said this though, the vessel itself is breath-taking
in its grandeur and sleek impressive finishes. They really have not left
anything to chance; it is all picture perfect. I was super impressed by Vadawn
and her obvious belief in how amazing MV EPICURE is. I can't wait until the VIP
launch next month so that we can see it in its full glory!
