Weddings, who doesn’t love weddings? We certainly do, especially if we can play a small part in it (give you those pearly whites for the big day). But we all know that there’s so much more that goes into a wedding, venues for example. Some couples know exactly where they want to get married, while others have no clue. We’ve compiled the top 10 wedding venues here in Sydney for those couples who need a little inspiration.
1. Gunners’ Barracks
Gunners’ Barracks is one of those venues that delivers historic elegance along with breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour. This venue not only has a variety of function rooms to choose from, depending on the size of the wedding, but you can also hold both your ceremony and reception there as well.
If views are your thing, then what better view than the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Holding your wedding at Dockside provides you with a magnificent view of these icons as well as the harbour.
3. Sergeants’ Mess
Sergeants’ Mess also provides wonderful views of the harbour as well as privacy, that way you and your guests can truly enjoy your magical day. Like Gunners’ Barracks, you can also hold both your ceremony and reception in the same area, and if you like, you and your guests can arrive by water transfer provided by the venue.
4. Taronga Centre
If you’re looking for something a bit more unique, then Taronga Centre is your venue. It not only overlooks the harbour, but the Royal Botanical Gardens as well. Its spaces are a mix of contemporary and sophistication and caters to a variety of events, even weddings.
5. Dunbar House
Dunbar House is another historic venue utilizing its refurbished 1830s mansion. It is an enchanting location that provides elegance and style for whatever type of wedding you choose to have. If you’re not looking for something so traditional for your ceremony, you can also have it at Dunbar House under their fig tree overlooking the harbour.
6. Luna Park
I think the word ‘fun’ is the first thing that pops up when you think Luna Park. That being said, Luna Park is still a leading wedding venue offering the same spectacular harbour views and timeless service, with their own little touch. Adding vintage attractions and contemporary dining, it’s safe to say that you can still have your special day at one of the most enjoyable places in Sydney.
7. Curzon Hall
If you’re dreaming of a fairy-tale wedding, then Curzon Hall is your venue. Sweeping cedar staircase, decorative fountains and crystal chandeliers, doesn’t that just scream fairy-tale? Not only that, you can also hold your ceremony on site in one of their beautiful gardens or maybe even on their lovely balconies, like a real princess.
8. Gledswood Homestead & Winery
Holding historical significance, Gledswood Homestead and Winery provides a more rustic and authentic atmosphere for your wedding. Whether your wedding is relaxed or large-scale, this wedding venue screams romance.
Compared to the above venues, Starship is remarkably different. Most couples don’t really consider a cruise as the first choice for a wedding venue, however Starship provides the same attention to detail and service that you would expect from a wedding on the ground. A venue like this, truly ensures the incredible Sydney Harbour as the backdrop for your wedding.
10. Three Blue Ducks
Unique, intimate and relaxed. Three Blue Ducks delivers these three qualities in your wedding. Set in an urban warehouse that can be styled how you want or left as is, Three Blue Ducks also boasts a unique menu and garden courtyard that is perfect for an outdoor garden ceremony.
These are our top 10, but there’s obviously so much more to choose from. We hope that we have inspired some ideas for those of you yet to be married, and we hope that we can also play a small part in your big day.
