Burnt Orange in Mosman is a very popular spot for Sunday brunch. Originally a golf clubhouse prior to World War II, this sandstone venue was under threat of being destroyed as part of an Australian Army resumption process. After internal discussions, the Army was hesitant to destroy the stone building, and instead, utilised the structure as their Barracks for the Eastern Command Signals. After 1997, The Sydney Harbour Federation Trust Act 2001 took control of the former Defence lands around Sydney Harbour, including Middle Head. The result is a lovely Middle Head landscape, with preserved gunnery emplacements and a still-landing clubhouse, where ‘Burnt Orange at The Club House’ forms a part of the history of the area. Nicky and Ted chose to have a Burnt Orange wedding to celebrate their nuptials, taking advantage of this historic venue is a fantastic location.
Nicky and Ted’s wedding day started at Blessed Sacrament Church in Mosman. After their ceremony, we captured some portraits at the lovely Georges Heights lookout – another favourite of mine, before returning to Burnt Orange for their reception. A second civil ceremony was held at Burnt Orage, which was a really nice experience – held under the downstairs verandah. The second ceremony at Burnt Orange enabled more guests to watch Nicky and Ted exchange vows in a fun and relaxed atmosphere (sipping champers on the side 🥂👍).
I’ve recently learned, that although Burth Orange has always been popular for smaller weddings, the venue has recently offered their upstairs main floor as a larger reception space. The upper level, similar to the ground floor, has an honest Australian vibe with white panelling, loads Frangipani trees, and the same friendly staff and attention to detail that made Nicky and Ted’s Burnt Orange wedding a lovely experience.
