Country Wedding Venues NSW

There's something about country wedding venues that guarantees a relaxed celebration. Country weddings are fresh, the air is pure, the location is green and there's the sound of unassuming cattle chewing cud. Wedding venues in country NSW just seem to be filled with so much love, laughter & romance.

In New South Wales, country venues are one of the most in-demand wedding locations. So its no wonder the most populated state of Australia (just), is graced with an amazing choice of regional, rural and destination venues. From the beach to the outback, NSW has just about every type of country wedding venue you could imagine.

Here's a quick run down of some of the different types of country venues you've got to choose from in NSW: farms, private estates, country cottages, barns & sheds, marquee venues, luxury rural hotels, wineries, an outback hedge maze, rustic & renovated historic ruins, formal gardens, ranches (where you can bring your own horse), hilltop venues, private & public golf courses and budget friendly bush sites.

Country wedding venues come in all price brackets too. From BYO venues where you can choose all your own wedding suppliers to all inclusive venues that provide everything for you. This list of country venues in NSW caters in general for wedding reception budgets of $100 - $500 per person. Couples on a tight budget or who are planning an elopement or micro wedding will find flexible package options indicated in the budget guides provided.

The budget guides for these country venues provide an estimated minimum cost for a catered and furnished wedding ceremony and reception. Actual costs will vary depending on your chosen inclusions. Many of the country locations listed in this article offer venue hire with accommodation, so the budget guide includes accommodation in addition to wedding costs. Many couples pass the cost of accommodation on to those being accommodated.

Without further ado, these are the most recommended country wedding venues in NSW.
