50 Stunning Wedding Estates in NSW

Wedding estates in NSW are private properties that can be hired for ceremonies & wedding receptions. They provide a uniquely intimate place to get married that includes exclusive use of the entire property. Private estates that allow weddings onsite are located all over New South Wales including Sydney, the North & South Coasts, in the hinterlands and on expansive country landscapes.

In NSW, wedding estates are made available to rent with two main package types. Some wedding venues offer DIY & BYO packages where you get to take over the estate for the day or weekend and bring your own suppliers. Other wedding estates offer all-inclusive deals where everything including catering is taken care of for you.

Estate wedding venues are unique locations by virtue of their setting & exclusivity, and offer guests an experience that differs vastly from more common places to get married. Estate weddings often have an air of luxury about them and tend to provide wedding guests with an extra sense of "wow" on arrival.

Wedding Estates in NSW include a huge range of private properties from luxury Airbnb style venues to waterfront homes, country cottages and heritage homesteads. Some wedding venues offer a secluded setting in private gardens while the pièce de résistance of other locations is the peaceful country ambience and picturesque regional views.

One of the great things about wedding estates in NSW is that most offer accommodation onsite. If you're looking for a location where you don't have to travel after your wedding reception, an estate or homestead wedding venue is an ideal choice. Some wedding packages will include a one night stay in their onsite accommodation, while other estates are well suited to a 3 day/2 night style weekend wedding.

These are our 50 most recommended wedding estates in NSW.

Wedding estates in NSW include a great range of private properties available to hire for your exclusive use. From luxury houses to relaxed country homesteads, the estate wedding venues in New South Wales cater to every type of ceremony and reception.

The cost of hiring a wedding estate in NSW ranges from $4,500 to $25,000. At the budget end inclusions range from exclusive day use of the property to full weekend access. Top end wedding estates include a minimum 2 night stay with accommodation covered in the hire fee. 

The overall budget for an estate wedding at the luxury venues listed above usually start at around $80k in peak wedding season. Weddings with under 50 guests and mid-week weddings can often attract a discount. 

If you're on a tighter budget, estates that allow BYO catering and drinks often provide the cheapest options. Start your venue search with private estates that have a permanent indoor reception space so as to avoid the cost of marquee hire. Wedding estates that provide cutlery, plates, arbors, chairs and tables will also save on hire costs.

For couples hunting an affordable wedding estate we recommend starting your search on the South Coast. At the other end of the budget spectrum, the Hunter Valley has several of the most luxurious wedding estates in NSW.
