Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. It’s a day to cherish, glorify, and encase in your memory. Every detail should be perfect, and here at The Playford, MGallery by Sofitel, we are especially interested in ensuring that your evening happens without a glitch. The only hitch will be when you say your vows at the ceremony.

Let’s explore why and how The Playford MGallery by Sofitel would make an excellent venue for wedding receptions for couples from Adelaide or further down the heart of Adelaide.


Impressive or Intimate 

We know that weddings are as diverse as our clients. Some prefer a small, intimate occasion with only their closest friends and family present. Others like to pull out all the stops and have a huge affair with everyone they know present. From the infamous handcrafted mirror on our staircase to the gold-leafed walls featured in our private rooms, The Playford MGallery by Sofitel offers the perfect backdrop for your special day.

For larger receptions, The Ballroom – which features floor-to-ceiling windows open to a full balcony overlooking the picturesque North Terrace – can accommodate up to 270 guests. For more intimate receptions, we’re just as delighted to help you create an unforgettable occasion. Whatever your numbers, we can tailor-make a wedding reception that suits you.
