Our customisable Port Macquarie wedding venues are the perfect way to make your big day magical

Congratulations on your engagement!

Nestled amongst landscaped gardens with stunning water views over the marina and Hastings River, Sails Resort Port Macquarie - By Rydges offers the perfect wedding venues for your big day. Imagine a tranquil waterfront garden ceremony on the banks of the beautiful Hastings River...

After the formalities, guests chat and relax with drinks and canapés at the pool side area, or on the deck overlooking the marina, while the bridal party poses for photos in the resort gardens, with stunning water views as a backdrop.

The reception is a relaxed, festive occasion in the stylish Spinnakers Restaurant & Bar, with magnificent views over the marina. Or perhaps a casual pool side occasion looking across the beautiful Hastings River, or one of the resort’s range of well-equipped private function rooms.

After the function, accommodation for guests at Sails Resort Port Macquarie - by Rydges can ensure that out of tow guests are catered and we offer special rates for wedding guests, from a selection of  83 rooms, offering either garden or water views. Your guests get a holiday as well as a wedding with access to the resort’s wide range of facilities, including 24 hour reception, pool, spas, sauna, mini golf and tennis courts.

Our team of wedding experts will assist in you in carefully planning every aspect of your reception, so you can sit back and enjoy your day. You and your guests savour the superb menu you have selected, created by highly regarded Executive Chef Michael Schubert. The friendly, experienced restaurant staff are unobtrusively at hand to attend to your guests’ every need.
