Wedding estates in NSW include a great range of private properties to hire with your ceremony, reception & accommodation all in the one spot. From luxury houses on Sydney Harbour to regional country homesteads, there are private estate wedding venues all over New South Wales that cater to every type of private property wedding.

To hire a private estate wedding venue in NSW costs between $4,500 to $25,000 and typically includes a 2 night stay in the onsite accommodation. Luxury wedding estates often offer discounted rates for mid week weddings and most private properties are willing to negotiate the hire fee in off-peak times which in Sydney, the Hunter Valley and South Coast is typically the winter months. 

The overall budget for an exclusive estate wedding usually starts at around $80k for 100 guests in peak wedding season. If you're on a tight budget, private 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 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 amongst South Coast wedding venues where there are several properties that sleep all guests whom are able to book & pay their own rooms. With guests covering the accommodation costs all you need to pay for is catering.
