Outdoor Wedding Venues in NSW

Orso

Outdoor wedding venues are as plentiful as they are diverse in NSW. If you're planning to get married outside your choices range from landscaped gardens to beaches, secluded forests and local parks. And that's just places for outside ceremonies. NSW has an exciting choice of alfresco locations for outdoor wedding receptions too. 

Garden wedding venues, estates with expansive manicured lawns and farms are particularly popular locations for outdoor weddings across all regions of NSW. And for good reason. There’s no place to get married that’s more relaxing or fun as under sunny blue skies with the hint of a warm summer breeze. 

Most of the outdoor wedding locations on this list offer a wet weather solution in the event of rain on your wedding day. Wet weather ceremony and reception venues are either outdoor covered areas such as verandahs or pavilions, or fully enclosed venues repurposed for the occasion. If there is no wet weather solution onsite, most venues will offer offsite alternatives.

Many ceremony and reception venues offer wedding packages that include free hire of tables, chairs and other furnishings specifically for use in their outdoor event areas. If you’re looking for cheaper wedding venues, places that provide free use of outdoor furniture with venue hire will save on your overall wedding budget.

The majority of the following outdoor wedding venues provide alfresco areas for both your ceremony and reception. Some places offer a choice of outside locations so you can choose the best spot to suit the style of your outdoor wedding. Without further ado, here are the 70 best outdoor wedding venues in NSW.
