Best Glamping Venues in NSW

Choosing to have your wedding at a glamping venue is a sure fire way to set the tone of your wedding to chilled and fun. It’s an adventure. It’s exciting. And it’s different! There’s still not many couples in NSW who choose to accommodate themselves (or their guests) in a glamping tent on the night of their wedding. 

Glamping is growing in popularity though, which is evident in the expanding number of wedding venues that now offer glamping as an option on their properties. In NSW, glamping venues range from farms to adventure camps to beachside estates to eco lodges and luxury retreats. And the cost of glamping at these venues is just as diverse as what they offer.

Most glamping tents come in two varieties. Portable glamping tents are pitched specifically for your wedding and are taken down again as you head off on your life adventure together. Venues that allow portable glamping tents on their property either own their own tents and they’ll charge you to hire them, or tents are supplied by external suppliers. Some venues will make arrangements with external suppliers for you, while others will request you to engage suppliers directly.

Hiring portable glamping tents usually includes a comfy bed, linen, blankets, pillows, floor rugs and some in-tent furniture like bedside tables and luggage stools. Some also include an outdoor table and chairs for two, or deck chairs.

If you’re going all out and arranging a glamping village to accommodate your entire wedding guest list, you might also hire a communal glamping tent where guests can congregate for small social gatherings, and furniture and furnishings for an outdoor lounge area. This set up is often referred to as a festival style wedding.

The other glamping option which leans towards a more luxury experience is semi-permanent tenting. These tents are usually pitched over the top of, or adjoining a permanent structure like a deck and are not taken down between bookings. What makes this glamping option great are the experiential extras. Like the perfectly private outdoor baths on their decks in which you can relax while sipping a glass of wine while enjoying the breeze and watching the birds. 

Any wedding venue that provides glamping also offers wedding ceremonies and receptions onsite. They are truly all-in-one venues where (aside from a golf buggy or two) transport will not be required for the duration of your stay. Here is our complete list of wedding glamping venues in NSW.

Awesome Barn & Shed Wedding Venues in NSW

Barns and Sheds have recently become some of the most sought after wedding venues in Australia. As more couples look for unique spaces that perfectly suit their personalities and lifestyle, demand for weddings in barns and sheds has soared. And so too has supply. When it comes to finding off-the-grid unique venues, Australia is the wedshed capital of the world. 

Initially inspired by beautifully styled private property weddings that had began appearing on social media, couples started looking for similar options for their own weddings. Farm owners found themselves receiving enquiries about the possibility of hosting weddings on their property. Those queries have steadily increased over the past few years, and in response, so too have the variety of barns and sheds now available for weddings in NSW.

Rustic spaces such as restored hay barns and tractor sheds are readily found in all regions of the state. Their exposed wooden beams, original flooring and corrugated & wrought iron features lend a relaxed and festive atmosphere to off-the-grid weddings. Ideal for rustic and boho weddings, these repurposed structures are easily (and cheaply) glammed up to achieve a modern aesthetic.  

Other rustic style barns and sheds that you can hire as wedding venues in NSW include horse stables and arenas. Long table lunches are particularly well suited in these spaces and there’s usually very little styling required other than the table setting itself.

In recent years, purpose built sheds have sprung up throughout NSW in response to growing demand for the chilled vibe of a barn venue coupled with a fresh and modern aesthetic. White walls, high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, floor to ceiling glass windows and large glass sliding doors make these light filled spaces the perfect blank canvas to style to your own preference.

Barns and sheds are wonderfully understated wedding venues that offer a unique and relaxed setting for laid back events with a fun atmosphere. They're typically large spaces that offer room for a dance floor, photo booth or a break away area that can be easily styled with a few rugs, a pair of velvet couches and a personalised neon sign. One of the great things about properties with barns and sheds for weddings, is that they almost always also offer accommodation onsite. From barn lofts to country estates to cottages or even glamping.

Whether you prefer a repurposed rustic barn or a modern light filled shed, there's a huge range of venues to choose from in NSW.  From working cattle farms to private properties to exclusive retreats - these are the best barn and shed venues for weddings in NSW...

A barn or shed is a wonderful venue choice for couples who want their wedding to be relaxed and fun with the ceremony and reception all in one place. Most of the properties on this list provide accommodation onsite too, so that you can stay the night before your wedding, get ready onsite in the morning and wander ‘home’ after your wedding reception.

With many properties available for your exclusive use for the entire weekend, barn and shed venues offer a very private and intimate setting where you can enjoy the company of your guests for an extended wedding celebration. And while barn weddings are popular, they’re certainly very unique. Having your wedding in a barn or shed is not a celebration that the two of you, or your guests, will quickly forget. 

The above barns and sheds are all wedding venues in NSW. They often book out quickly and we recommend making enquiries 8 months to 2 years in advance. The longer the lead time, the more likely you are to secure your preferred dates.

Best Bali Wedding Regions

Bali is one of the most exotic and sought after wedding destinations in the world. The rich culture, spectacular locations and scenic beauty make the island a popular holiday spot for domestic and international tourists alike, and a highly anticipated honeymoon destination for newlywed couples. But it is Bali’s stunning wedding ceremony and reception venues, their unique architecture, unique chapels and breathtaking location that make the island one of the most sought after wedding destinations on the globe. 

With a large number of domestic and foreign couples electing to marry in Bali, there are literally hundreds of wedding venues to take your pick from. Most couples jetting in for their wedding narrow down the choice of venues by deciding on a preferred region on and around the island. Bali is a large island (it takes around 12 hours to drive around it without stopping) and has a diverse cultural and topographic landscape that provides very unique wedding experiences depending on the region you choose.

The 6 regions below offer the best of Bali’s wedding experiences. If you’re looking for a destination wedding location in Bali, these are the regions where you’ll find the island’s best wedding venues and services.

Best 6 Places to Get Married in Bali

Batu Karang Resort
Batu Karang Nusa Lembongan Resort

Nusa Lembongan Island

At a small island lying off the Southeast coast of the main Island Bali, you’ll find the paradise utopia more commonly known as Nusa Lembongan. Quickly becoming one of Bali’s most popular attractions, this idyllic island is a world away from the frenzied pace of Southern Bali. Nusa Lembongan is a wedding destination for romantics, with breathtaking panoramic views across the Indian Ocean and luxurious accommodation and venues to host the most intimate occasion with your loved ones. 

With a high density of 5-star resorts and villas, Nusa Lembongan’s serene landscape and flawless facilities are perfect for those couples who desire all the comforts, complemented with friendly and attentive service. Nusa Lembongan is commonly the likelier choice of couples who wish to have a fancier, grander or more of a formal wedding, with the focus on an overall high-end guest experience. Accommodation at the island's best wedding resorts ranges from AUD $90 to $260 per night on average (via booking sites) and you could expect to pay around US $100 per person for an all-inclusive wedding package with catering and drinks.

The island is equally famous for its iconic sunrises & sunsets, and its pristine white beaches that offer views to mainland Bali and the magnificent Mount Agung. There's a great choice of wedding venues at Nusa Lembongan island, from eco retreats to thatch villas and resorts that you can hire exclusively for your extended wedding. Finding your perfect destination wedding venue in this region won’t be an issue at all.   

Nusa Dua 

Beautiful beaches, luxurious hotels, seclusion, minimal crowds and a rich culture is what you’ll find in Nusa Dua. Being in its own Bali bubble, weddings in Nusa Dua are all about luxury experiences, beautiful beaches and local traditions. Whether visiting quiet and secluded beaches is your preference, or kicking your feet up poolside Nusa Dua is a guaranteed relaxing experience for holidays, weddings, honeymoons or simply a romantic break for two.

Being on the less commercial side of Bali (despite the convenient 30 minutes drive from bustling Kuta), daytime activities are a little more low key here. You can visit small shopping centres and daytime markets, browse the wares of many local talents, enjoy authentic street food or simply stroll along the shoreline. Swimming and snorkelling are popular daytime activities, Pandawa Beach offers kayaking and other water sports rentals and the area also has some challenging surf beaches.

There's loads of places for wedding guests to explore in Nusa Dua too. From beaches with huge limestone cliffs and impressive carved statues, to water blow holes, to fishing spots and golf courses.

Bali Wedding Regions for Destination Wedding
Bali culture. A destination wedding in Bali offers a rich cultural experience.

Temples are a prevalent feature of the landscape in Nusa Dua and add to the rich culture of the region. There's also several galleries that display valuable artwork from across Asia and the Pacific Islands. Cultural events include the Nusa Dua Fiesta held every October which includes street parades and live performances of music, dancing and arts.

Nusa Dua is a popular location for small weddings and elopements with many wedding ceremony packages on offer. Prices range from approximately $1,500 to $7,000 depending on your venue choice and the type of ceremony you choose. Options include culturally sacred ceremonies, Hindu or Buddhist weddings, cliff top ceremonies, beach nuptials and waterfall weddings. 

The ungasan
The Ungasan Resort

Ungasan

Seamlessly blending into the greater Uluwata area, resting on the southernmost tip of the island -  Ungasan is notoriously known as one of the most scenic areas in Bali. She offers majestic clifftops with views for as far as the eye can see. The area combines peaceful rural surroundings with some of the most élite luxury resorts and clifftop villas the Island has to offer. 

Ungasan wedding venue
One of the many architecturally spectacular ocean view wedding venues in Bali

Ungasan is also home to some of the most spectacular beaches on Bali Island, with pristine white sand shores and clear blue waters. Weddings are all about elegance and comfort here. Ungasan is the epitome of a seaside wedding sanctuary, offering discrete privacy and intimacy as well as world-class cuisines and luxurious accommodation and facilities.

Wedding guests will enjoy exploring Ungasan by the many tour options available. There’s a popular half day ‘hidden secrets’ jeep tour and a busy industry of private drivers that will escort you to less touristic spots in the region. Adventure lovers can explore the area from above by booking a paragliding experience.

Ungasan is a picture perfect setting for chilling out with a specially crafted beverage in hand, while watching the sun disappear behind the ocean line. It is a dream setting for a tropical and exotic wedding celebration, although it is not as cheap as other areas in Bali. 

The going rate for an all-inclusive wedding for 10 people in one of Ungasan's exclusive resorts is around AUD $16,000. For 70 people you could expect to be quoted around $50,000. The list of inclusions offered at these resorts is impressive, with accommodation and spa treatments for all guests included, a private butler, driver and nanny, wedding ceremony and reception and a host of smaller ticket items.

Ubud District

Ubud is a place where traditional Balinese culture infuses every waking moment and where colourful offerings decorate the streets. The area is a showcase of sustainable design, culinary inventiveness, mindfulness and a celebration of culture. Ubud is an inland destination without the beaches or cliff top views, but it is as visually spectacular in its green finery, as its coastal neighbours are with their ocean outlooks.

The stunning inland waterfalls of Bali's Ubud District

A scenic hour drive from Bali’s coast and beaches, you will find the vibrant “one with nature” Ubud District. With blends of local tradition and contemporary style hidden amongst enchanting lush valleys, flowing waters and green foothills – Ubud lends its beauty to couples to make an oath and begin life together as one in an awe-inspiring intimate and romantic inland wedding ceremony.

Ubud offers plenty of exciting things to see and do before and after your wedding. From exploring ancient temples, palaces and archaeological sites, to visiting the local museums and galleries, to taking photos at the Tegallalang Rice Terraces and visiting the Ubud Monkey Forest. Nature lovers will enjoy the 9km Campuhan Ridge Walk, shoppers will love the Ubud Art Market and the Bali Agung Show is a must see experience for those who enjoy the theatre.

Many couples choose Ubud for their destination Bali wedding for the unique inland tropical location. The green countryside and rice terraces make a stunning backdrop for wedding photos as do the waterfalls and pools. While most couples head to seaside resorts to celebrate their Bali wedding, there’s something magical and especially intimate about weddings in Ubud. 

With its natural surroundings and peaceful atmosphere Ubud provides a sense of divine spirituality and connectedness. Planning a wedding is easy here too, with many wedding venues connecting you with experienced industry professionals to do all your styling and planning for you.

Simple ceremonies at Ubud's waterfalls are popular and usually cost between AUD $2,000 - $3,000. Traditional Balinese ceremonies start at around AUD $500. And a wedding ceremony and dinner for 20 people at one of Ubud's treetop venues with stunning valley views starts at AUD $3,600.

Seminyak 

Allia Seminyak
Alila Seminyak in Bali

Often characterized as Bali’s most sophisticated and upscale beach resort, despite humble beginnings – Seminyak is now a very modern part of Bali. This world renowned beach resort area at the southern end of Bali, is home to many luxury villas, hotels, spas, restaurants as well as high-end shopping malls.

Compared to Ubud, there’s fewer things to do in Seminyak. But if a relaxed, casual beach setting in which to exchange your vows is what you’re after or an ultra-glamorous celebration with all the glitz and glams – Seminyak will be your ideal wedding destination. It’s the ideal location for couples who are in quest of a unique and relaxed location to celebrate love, be it a legal wedding or a commitment ceremony. 

Sunbathing is the popular sport in Seminyak. If you can muster the energy there’s also some wonderful boutique shopping on offer and the fine dining is some of the best in Bali. The region also has a chocolate factory, several escape rooms, surf beaches, temples and cooking classes on offer.

There is no more luxurious location to say “I Do”, set on a tropical island, in earshot of the Indian Ocean waves and with breathtaking sunsets than Seminyak. To give you a rough idea of the cost of a wedding ceremony in Seminyak, a well known international hotel chain offers ceremonies attended by up to 50 guests including two nights accommodation for up to 4 couples from AUD $5,000.

Sanur 

Sanur is the oldest, original beach resort destination on the whole island and yet, it never failed to lose its unique personality, tranquillity nor the traditional Balinese feel. The coastline of Sanur spans 8km of sand and includes several popular beaches that don’t get quite as congested as those in the tourist centre of Kuta.

Villa at a Sanur wedding venue

Away from the hordes of tourists, in Sanur people enjoy bicycle rides to the local markets or strolls from the villa to the beach. Lining long stretches of the clean shore, traditional jukung fishing boats rest in colourful arrangements on the sand. The beaches are perfectly safe for swimming and if you’re after the thrill of action there are plenty of water sport activities including the unique Bali Seawalker where you can walk underwater and experience the beautiful reefs and tropical marine life. 

Sanur’s coastal strip has a wonderful selection of resorts and hotels that offer a range of wedding packages which are on average, cheaper than in Seminyak. Connected by a paved footpath and cycle track, the Sanur beaches with the best wedding venues include:

  • Keramas Beach
  • Sanur Beach
  • Sindhu Beach
  • Mertasari Beach

Off the beach, villas in the area offer well-tended lawns, luxurious pools and traditional thatched-roofed pavilions. Perhaps the world’s most spectacular wedding pavilion is also situated here, providing an all-glass-enclosed, spectacular setting for weddings of up to 60 guests overlooking Sanur beach.

Bali wedding spot
Ulu Cliffhouse, Bali

Bali is one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations for many great reasons. The island is a tropical paradise with its stunning beaches and ocean views providing a picturesque backdrop against its lush greenery. The architecturally stunning chapels and glass pavilions. The impeccable landscaping and poolside lounges at its villas and resorts. And the culturally rich and diverse people and services. 

Bali is also one of the most affordable wedding destinations on the planet. Luxury weddings are not expensive in Bali and flights into the country are affordable too. For couples with guests travelling into Bali from a variety of places around the world, the island’s location and accessibility to flights is especially convenient.

If you’re planning on having a destination wedding or elopement, you’re all but guaranteed to find a stunning wedding venue in Bali, that fits well with both your budget and your preferences.
