If you dream of a wedding that offers breathtaking views of the Swan River as well as being surrounded by lush parkland, Matilda Bay Restaurant should be at the top of your list. As a local wedding photographer who has had the pleasure of capturing countless weddings at Matilda Bay, I've seen firsthand how stunning this place is especially at sunset. 

Matilda Bay offers a breathtaking backdrop for your wedding day. With panoramic views of the Swan River, Perth City, and the lush greenery of surrounding parklands, your wedding photos are guaranteed to be stunning. The variety of landscapes—from riverside tranquillity to architectural elegance at the nearby University of Western Australia—provides endless opportunities for beautiful portraits. 

Wedding Ceremony by the Shore

The space just out front of Matilda Bay Restaurant is the perfect location for a ceremony. The sunsets behind the trees, so it’s often perfectly shaded in the afternoon and provides a perfect view of the bay. This space isn’t part of Matilda Bay restaurant and needs to be booked separately for a small fee via the local council. 

Reception Rooms
The Roe Room and The Catalina Room at Matilda Bay Restaurant cater to weddings of all sizes and styles. The Roe Room's dedicated kitchen ensures that your guests enjoy sensational dining, all while soaking in the views from this elevated space. It's perfect for larger, more formal gatherings of up to 140 guests. On the other hand, The Catalina Room offers a more intimate setting with its seamless indoor/outdoor flow, ideal for smaller weddings that wish to embrace the natural surroundings, perfect for around 40 guests. 

Wedding Photos
As a photographer, Matilda Bay is a dream location. A variety of backdrops provides options for couples to have their portraits captured to suit their style. The river foreshore is just stunning right on sunset, Whilst UWA and the surrounding parklands are great a little earlier in the day. All are easily accessible from Matilda Bay Restaurant. 

We were incredibly impressed with Eerik!
The brief we gave Eerik was: “we hate photos so please don’t make us pose for hours on end” and he 100% understood the assignment! The sneak peek of our images was a beautiful and unexpected surprise at the reception and exceeded our expectations. His ability to make us feel comfortable in front of the lens was remarkable. Moreover, Eerik seamlessly collaborated with our videographer, displaying professionalism and an easy going approach. He helped us keep on time throughout the day and we’re so glad we trusted him 100% as the images speak for themselves. We could not recommend him more highly for capturing those special moments! Thank you a million times over Eerik! Mike & Laura Casello
