Mosmans Restaurant is one of Perth’s favourite seafood restaurants. Sitting by the window in Mosmans enjoying a slow lunch with a loved one and a bottle of wine is one of life’s rare pleasures.
Weddings at Mosmans
Over the last three years it has also become a popular wedding reception venue hosting weddings on most Friday and Saturday nights. It is the combination of a great location, great food and wonderful service that have lifted Mosmans to a first choice reception location. Mosmans also assist with linking couples to a talented group of preferred suppliers which takes the pressure off couples trying to locate reliable businesses to assist with their wedding.
The surrounding parks and waterfront reserves offer a range of great wedding ceremony locations and photography backdrops which enable couples to keep their wedding day confined to a relatively small travel requirement and thus maximise their time enjoying the occasion. The jetty park beside Mosmans is very popular and gives access to Mosmans facilities shortly after the ceremony.
When the wedding limos pull up at Mosmans to collect a couple from their reception for a late nigh get-away to their hotel, the venue is electric.
Limo access at Mosmans Restaurant
General parking near Mosmans is in the public car parks up the hill along Johnson Parade. The path from the car parks to the venue is steep and can be quite a challenge for ladies in high heels at the end of the night. It is preferable to advise guests to drop the elderly and ladies at the restaurant drop-off zone before taking the vehicle to the car park. Similarly they can be collected from the same place at the end of the night. Mosmans Restaurant needs to be approached from the city end of Johnson Parade to access the set-down zone. Exit Stirling Highway into Johnson Parade or Glyde Street for the best approach to the venue.
The set-down zone at the front of the restaurant will also be required by the wedding limos when the bride is delivered to the ceremony or the couple arrives for the reception so it is important that your guests do not leave their cars there in stead of the car park. The car parks on the hill side are not suitable for larger wedding transport like Chrysler limos. Apart from the set-down zone in front of the venue there is no other parking possibilities along Johnson Parade either so the wedding transport must have the restaurant set-down zone reserved for use, otherwise the limos will need to park several hundred metres away and be called when required to collect passengers from the venue.
Access to the ceremony location beside Mosmans is also possible with traditional wedding cars. Mosmans staff have the key for the bollard and the wedding car can then deliver the bride to a red carpet entrance to the river-side ceremony. Some brides prefer the walk along the path to the location too. See photos of this in the Mosmans gallery page.
Due to the steep drive away from Mosmans most couples retain the wedding limos for transport to the various photo locations around the Mosman Park area (Bay View Terrace or Freshwater Bay) or to drive to the Cottesloe Beach or Fremantle areas nearby.
