If you’re looking for wedding venues in Newcastle with a little extra “something”, McDonald Jones Stadium is a perfect choice. Our function rooms have breathtaking views of the Andrew Johns Grandstand and our iconic football field, where teams like the Newcastle Knights and Newcastle Jets have played their way to victory.
Even if you’re not an avid football fan, the dazzling view of the field is sure to have guests feeling inspired. The sheer size of the field is something to behold, and the red and blue seating in the grandstand makes for an incredible backdrop for capturing photos and memorable moments.
For large weddings, we recommend our stunning Broadmeadow Room located in the western grandstand on the second floor. It’s where our guests tend to find the best views with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the grandstand.
Hosting up to 300 guests, the Broadmeadow Room is the perfect venue for the extravagant wedding you’ve always wanted. Your reception can be set up as an open plan event, or we can adjust the room to be a smaller, more intimate event. Using clever furniture arrangements and decorations, we can make your small wedding a comfortable, cosy affair for friends and family.
Alternatively, we can use the Broadmeadow Room to break the reception up into smaller rooms capable of hosting 100 guests each - perhaps a romantic ballroom for the couple’s first dance, an immersive photo booth or games room, a banquet-style dining room, and a dance floor for drinks and celebrating later in the evening?
No request is too outlandish for the events team at McDonald Jones Stadium. With a central bar, natural lighting, and delicious catering options, you’re bound to have an amazing wedding in the Broadmeadow Room at McDonald Jones Stadium.
The accessible wedding venue Newcastle guests can rely on
As one of Newcastle’s premier wedding and reception venues, we pride ourselves on the accessible nature of the stadium. Our venues aim to be welcoming and accessible to all guests, which is why our eastern and western grandstands provide easy access for people with impaired mobility.
Just off the main car park of McDonald Jones Stadium, the Broadmeadow Room is the perfect location for a red carpet entrance. Our team can make the reception feel like an “exclusive” event and make everyone feel special on the big day.
Your wedding guests can access the Broadmeadow Room via the central lifts - with ample signage and our smooth floor tiles for the vision impaired, this entrance is a safe and easy to navigate entrance.
As an added bonus, the central bar can be accessed no matter where you are in the venue - even when the Broadmeadow Room is split up into four quadrants. Alternatively, allow us to serve drinks to your guests and ensure everyone is comfortable from the start of the reception to the very finish.
Mouth-watering catering for all diets and palettes
We know not all palettes are created equal, which is why we offer flexible catering to meet everyone’s tastes, needs, and requirements.
Our catering team offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options while keeping allergies at the forefront of the team’s mind. Just let us know about any special dietary requirements before the big day and our catering team will adjust the menu to suit your guests’ needs.
Your guests will be served a delectable three-course meal. We have a wide range of menus to choose from - long before the reception, our wedding planners will discuss dinner, dessert, and beverage options with you to ensure we get the flavour of the event just right.
For the kids, we offer children’s menus with all their favourite meals - even for the pickiest eaters. Of course, our children’s meals are offered at a reduced rate, so the more kids, the merrier!

Flexible equipment hire and set up
Apart from the catering, equipment hire is one of the major considerations for weddings of all kinds. When it comes time for speeches, you want the bride and groom to be heard - as well as the maid of honour, the best man, family members, and more!
With this in mind, we ensure our Newcastle wedding venues are well-equipped with all the audio/visual equipment you need for a fully immersive wedding experience. The Broadmeadow Room comes complete with a built-in PA system, speakers, and a wide range of other options to suit your presentation needs.
We also offer seamless WIFI so you can stream music and share slideshows of images of the happy couple when they were kids, at the start of their relationship, and see how their love has progressed over the years.
If required, we can even help musicians and DJs set up to keep the guests entertained. No request is too outlandish!
