Weddings, Dinner Parties, Commitment Ceremonies: Where Is MAFS Filmed?
The highly anticipated new season of “Married At First Sight” is here, and it’s full speed ahead for another round of chaos and drama. We’ve met all the couples, watched them exchange vows with a complete stranger and go on their honeymoons. Not to mention the season’s very first dinner party went off with a bang.
It’s one of the most watched and talked about reality TV shows in Australia right now, which might get you wondering: where is this actually filmed?
While the majority of the filming is done in Sydney, the show uses multiple locations around the city. This season’s couples haven’t moved in together yet, but from previous seasons, we know that they usually stay together at the SKYE Suites Sydney.
Whether you’ve spotted a venue that looks familiar or are just genuinely intrigued about where all the drama goes down, we’ve done some digging to find out all the details. Here’s what we’ve learned.
Where are the MAFS Dinner Parties and Commitment Ceremonies Filmed?
The dinner parties are famously filmed in the Sydney suburb of Lilyfield. While the location gives off that industrial chic appearance, the reality is that the location is more on the industrial side and less on the chic scale.
The 1,200sqm loft space is rented by the show each year and transformed into a sleek looking space that can be used for the pre-dinner drinks and the dinner itself. It’s also the same location used for the intense commitment ceremonies on Sunday nights.
Where Every Single Couple on MAFS Had Their Wedding
It wouldn’t be “MAFS” without the picturesque wedding venues. Along with the stunning designer dresses, it’s the views behind the couple that really help capture people’s attention.
Last year, the ongoing COVID lockdowns meant that the “MAFS” weddings weren’t as luxe as they usually are, but this year, they’re back and more stunning than ever.
Here’s where this year’s couples exchanged vows.
Melinda and Layton | The Jackson Yacht, NSW
Melinda and Layton said ‘I do’ onboard The Jackson Yacht in Sydney Harbour. It’s Sydney’s newest, most luxurious vessel, hosting some of Australia’s top talent and events since commencing operations in March 2022. The yacht was decorated in classy white floral arrangements for the special day.
Melissa and Josh | Swifts, NSW
This couple had their wedding at Swifts, a heritage-listed late-Victorian castellated Gothic Revival mansion located in the suburb of Darling Point, Sydney.
Alyssa and Duncan | Tides Byron Estate, NSW
These love birds first locked eyes at the stunning Tides Byron Estate, located in the Byron hinterlands. Nestled in a macadamia orchard, the reception area attached to the lawn has a custom-designed events hall for up to 140 guests.
Caitlin and Shannon | Braeside Gin House Creek Estate, QLD
Caitlin and Shannon got hitched at the Braeside Gin House Creek Estate on the Gold Coast. The picturesque location is nestled on two acres of beautiful and historic grounds.
Janelle and Adam | The EarthHouse, NSW
It was a magical occasion when Janelle and Adam exchanged vows at The EarthHouse, a purpose built wedding and event space in the heart of the Byron Bay hinterland. The venue boasts a unique rural setting overlooking spectacular mountain and hinterland views.
Sandy and Dan | Miramare Gardens, NSW
Sandy and Dan’s eye-catching wedding was held at Miramare Gardens in Terrey Hills, Sydney. Staying true to Sandy’s Indian heritage, the venue was decked out with red and gold décor.
Claire and Jesse | Novella On The Park, NSW
Claire and Jesse got hitched at the stunning location at Novella On The Park in Abbotsford, Sydney. Nestled amongst the picturesque Western Sydney Parklands, the five-star venue looked like pure luxury.
Tahnee and Ollie | Carriageworks, NSW
Carriageworks Sydney is usually the venue to host fashion shows, but it was transformed into a wedding venue for Tahnee and Ollie. It was decorated with neon lighting and colourful flowers, unlike anything we’ve seen before on the show.
Lyndall and Cameron | Villa Rustica, NSW
Nestled in rolling green hills in the Byron Bay hinterland, the loved-up couple wed at Villa Rustica. It was a jaw-dropping location with faded charm and rustic elegance.
Bronte and Harrison | Sydney Coliseum Theatre, NSW
One of the show’s controversial couple exchanged vows at the Sydney Coliseum Theatre in Rooty Hill. The theatre, with its shimmering chandelier and Terrazzo floors, was decked out with white flowers for the occasion.
