Top 10 Wedding Venues outside of Sydney


Whether you fancy yourself a hipster, boho or lover of the industrial rough and rustic this is a beautiful location where recycled industrials meet with Mother Nature and birth a perfect wedding venue.


History buffs are those who always like an extra somethin’ somethin’, meet the National Art School’s Cell Block Theatre. We have seen this place be transformed into a range of themed functions and weddings that it is truly a jewel in the Sydney wedding venue sea.


This a beautiful venue that’s both classy and a nod to some Georgian and French heritage. Housing its very own vineyard, impressive staircases and a couple of glamour elements such as crystal chandeliers and French windows, this is the perfect venue where history meets old school glamour.


Want waterfront views, statement walls couple with glamour at every turn? Sergeant’s Mess is somewhere you’ll want to consider. It’s also conveniently situated near some picturesque locations perfect for the obligatory photo session in between the ceremony and reception.


Where would this list be without a humble nod to the heritage listed Curzon Hall? With a Victorian style, sweeping cathedral-style ceilings, fireplaces made of marble of all things. This venue screams a sense of grandeur one can only get from this locations that truly take you to another time.


Following the big ol’ glamour train is Le Montage which is does offer a more modern type of glamour that is just as welcome. It all depends on what you want on your big day and if it is going to involve up to 2500 people, Le Montage has got you covered all with water views to boot.


Now if you would like to steer clear of the traditional classically smooth wedding look then try the industrial Doltone House. Indoor or outdoor they offer both located on a historical wharf. What’s awesome about this venue is that you can transform it to suit your style whether it be luxurious, nostalgically rustic or somewhere in between!


No it’s not an actual starship but it is a cruise boat that will take your reception around the Sydney Harbour with open air viewing to view it all from a truly unique perspective. If you want to avoid potential seasickness they also offer an indoor option with floor to ceiling windows and a view of the Harbour this is sure to still impress!


Although we don’t suggest exchanging rings on a ride, if having a more casual, fun filled reception is more your speed then Luna Park might be right up your alley. You and the guests are guaranteed to always have something to do and it can be a great way to reduce the possible nervousness that comes with more formal gatherings. If you’re a fan of contrast, formal-wear with a theme park backdrop can make for some great memories and pictures that you can happily look back on later.


The ultimate rustic experience with exposed wooden beams, bricks, historic buildings and lots… lots of tree. This venue provides the perfect setting and backdrop that looks like you pulled it straight out of Pinterest. Oh and did we mention they have a winery?

We hope these wedding reception venue ideas have given you some insight into what sort of venue you would like for your wedding day!
Best of luck and happy planning!
