Newcastle Weddings

Our Weddings

The Apollo International Hotel in Charlestown is the wedding venue that has it all. Located amongst rustic bushland between pristine Newcastle beaches and the tranquil Lake Macquarie, it is surrounded by stunning natural beauty. It’s the perfect backdrop for gorgeous photos and a relaxed setting for drinks and canapes with your guests.

The outdoor rotunda is the ideal spot for a garden ceremony right next to the function rooms and surrounded by native bush. Guests can sip sparkling wine and nibble on gourmet delicacies in the gardens before entering the reception to greet the special couple.

Choose from an elegant sit-down meal in our Apollo room right next to the sparkling pool or spend the evening grazing on canapes and platters while you mingle with your guests.

The Apollo also saves the hassle of arranging accommodation for both the bridal couple and guests by offering special wedding party rates for anyone choosing to stay the night (or two!)  The bride and groom will be treated to a deluxe suite to spend their wedding night complete with sparkling wine, chocolates and breakfast for two in the morning.

My daughters wedding was a great time with great service and food , Pamela was fantastic with service and friendly way of dealing with us and our family. Great staff from reception, waitresses and also house keeping- a great few days spent at your hotel. - Mick, 19/7/22

The team at Apollo made everything so easy. From our initial walk through to final planning nothing was to hard. We loved being able to have the entire wedding on-site, including photos in the bushland setting after our ceremony. Our guests were able to easily book accommodation & everything was great value. Our coordinator Pam went above & beyond on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. We would recommend to anyone looking for an all inclusive venue. 10/10 - Jamie C, Easy Weddings, 9/4/22

This was our wedding location and it was the most beautiful day I could ever have imagined. The venue is amazing, the food is amazing, the accommodation is amazing. We had our ceremony, reception and accomodation here. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect place for my special day! The staff are also amazing! - Teigan, Trip Advisor, 20/3/22

My partner and I got married here March 2022. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. A beautiful bush land out the back where the function is, which you would not expect with the front of the hotel on a main road, quiet, peaceful and absolutely beautiful for photos, socialising and so much outdoor space. The inside function room was more than enough space for our 85 guests! And it’s absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner (Pam), and a venue. Not to mention it was the most affordable venue in the entire Newcastle area! Absolutely everything went to plan thanks to these guys! And Pam is there for you every time you need her without a doubt. Thank you Apollo for creating the best day of our lives! - Teigan B, 7/3/22

We had our wedding with you guys on Feburary 18th and absolutely loved it! Thank you to Pam and all the staff for all their help with everything. We appreciate you all going above and beyond for us. - Alysha, 5/3/22

My husband and I would highly recommend The Apollo International Charlestown for weddings. Renee was our wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing, nothing was ever a bother for her. We believe she went above and beyond to make sure our special day went off without a hitch. They had everything in the one place. We had our photos done here as well as the ceremony and reception  which was good as we had older relatives that couldn't do much travel. They were very affordable and all the food and drinks and services was perfect, we had so many compliments from our guests about how wonderful everything was there. It was very convenient with most of our guests choosing to stay at the hotel for the night. - Tammy H, 14/1/20
