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!
