Rustic Wedding Venues in NSW

The rustic wedding venue was once the exclusive domain of old tin sheds and wooden barns on country properties in the city outskirts. Nowadays, the rustic theme has broadened to incorporate a wider variety of wedding venues including those that feature modern architecture and decor. A rustic wedding is no longer restricted to old rusty sheds. In NSW, a wonderfully eclectic selection of rustic wedding venues includes original barns & sheds as well as more modern & purpose built spaces. You can find them all by scrolling down.

Interestingly, the popularity of rustic wedding venues has not diminished since the concept of getting married in a shed first burst onto the events scene. That may be because rustic venues offer something different to a traditional wedding venue. They deliver an experience outside of the norm in a very personalised setting that’s often more closely aligned with the lifestyles of the couples that choose to get married in them. Rustic spaces have a unique down to earth and relaxed feel about them. They’re fun!

Rustic wedding venues in NSW include wineries, resorts, country-style homesteads, gardens, olive groves, bed & breakfasts, heritage listed properties and luxury estates. Many rustic venues offer outdoor wedding receptions in addition to providing an alternative indoor space, and some properties offer permanent or temporary marquees in a rustic setting. 

Farms and bush bound properties are the most popular rustic settings, particularly among couples who love nature. Purpose built structures on these properties offer a more luxury wedding experience whereas original or refurbished barns, sheds, horse stables and the like provide a more authentic ‘event on the land’ experience. Either type of venue can be styled to create the perfect rustic or boho vibe you’re aiming for.

Rustic wedding venues all have their own unique personalities. Their location provides the setting for your wedding and their architecture and decor provides the backdrop. It’s the combination of these two elements that create the vibe on your wedding day. On the list below, you’ll find a huge range of rustic wedding venues in a wonderful variety of settings & locations throughout NSW.
