40 Stunning Wedding Ceremony Venues in NSW

Ceremony Wedding Venues in NSW

Wedding ceremony venues in NSW provide a wide variety of locations to say "I do." From indoor wedding venues to outdoor ceremony locations, Australia's largest state boasts some of the world's most stunning places to get married. To help you find the perfect spot to exchange vows with your number one person, we've created this list of the best wedding ceremony locations in NSW.

Ceremony venues are usually selected based on the backdrop they provide and the facilities available onsite. In NSW, there's places to have a wedding ceremony on the beach, in a forest, overlooking a bush setting or framed by a country or waterfront landscape. There are garden ceremony venues, picturesque vineyards and farms, and luxury resorts with views over golf courses.

In addition to the backdrop provided by your wedding ceremony venue, you may also consider the style of the location, the venue's architecture and the experience that the location lends itself to when choosing your special spot. There are traditional wedding ceremony venues that are either religious or non-denominational, and then there's utterly unique spots to tie the knot that need to be seen to be believed.

NSW has a particularly stunning collection of chapel venues that cater for both traditional weddings and celebrations that are a little more outside of the box. Some of the more unique church-like wedding venues include open air chapels, neon chapel rooms and forest chapels. Other unique spots to exchange vows include amphitheatres, wisteria arbors, viewing decks, private beaches and hilltop lookouts.

Many wedding ceremony venues listed below include reception venues in the same location. Destination events such as a Blue Mountains wedding, a Southern Highlands wedding or a Hunter Valley wedding for example, all offer ceremony and reception packages onsite. Where there is a reception venue onsite, wedding ceremony packages range from:

  • Ceremony-only: includes venue hire (+ furniture in many cases)
  • DIY: includes exclusive use of the entire property to DIY ceremony + reception
  • All-inclusive: includes ceremony + reception venue hire + food & beverage

Wedding ceremonies can take place literally anywhere. There's no law that says you have to be in a particular type of location in order to get legally married in Australia. Choosing one of the following wedding ceremony venues for your big day gives peace of mind however, that all the facilities required for your ceremony are present and attended to on your big day.
