Pet Friendly Wedding Venues in NSW

Pet friendly wedding venues have become increasingly more prevalent in Australia over recent years. As more and more couples have requested the presence of dogs and other animals at their wedding ceremonies and receptions, it has become reasonably common to see pets being catered for on the wedding day.

In fact, the presence of pets at weddings has given a boom to an industry of products and services dedicated to ensuring they are looked after on their parents’ big day. From pet minding services that cater to the needs of pets and their owners at wedding venues, to pet clothing and accessories that match the day’s dress code.

Below is a list of the most pet friendly wedding venues in NSW. From dog friendly wedding venues to places where you can share your wedding with llamas, donkeys and horses. These are the wedding venues that welcome your furry friends with open arms and a scratch behind the ears.

Most pet inclusive venues will require that your fur baby has a dedicated attendant on your wedding day. The attendant will be required to pick up after your pet and ensure the pet is under control via a leash at all times. Most wedding venues have dedicated areas where pets are welcome - such as the wedding ceremony location. However attendants will be required to keep your pet away from pet restricted areas (such as commercial kitchens and food prep & service areas for example).

When it comes to choosing who will look after your pet on your wedding day, there are a couple of options. Your pet attendant could be any one of your wedding guests, however hiring a professional pet minder for the duration that your furry friend will be in attendance at your wedding ceremony and/or reception is highly recommended. This removes the responsibility of looking after your pet from your guest and ultimately yourselves - so that you can all relax knowing that Rex the Labradoodle isn’t digging up the veggie patch or chasing the neighbour’s sheep.

Here is a list of pet friendly wedding venues that welcome dogs and animals in all fluffy shapes and sizes.
