Waterfront Wedding Venues in NSW

Australia offers an incredible choice of waterfront wedding venues, which is no surprise given we have one of the world’s longest coastlines. From beachfront and clifftop venues with ocean views, to riverfront properties and lakeside retreats. There are literally hundreds of waterfront wedding venues in Australia, and a diverse selection of them are right here in NSW.

Between the popular holiday spot of Byron Bay in northern NSW to the less well trodden beaches on the state’s far south coast, 2,137km of coastal beaches, cliffs and national park provide a picturesque backdrop for many of the state’s waterfront wedding venues.

But it’s not just oceanfront venues that make Australia one of the world’s best wedding destinations. Our inland rivers and waterways provide the setting for some of the country’s most Instagrammable wedding venues. From luxury oceanfront properties to affordable riverside retreats, here are 65 of our most recommended waterfront wedding venues in NSW.

Best Glamping Venues in NSW

Choosing to have your wedding at a glamping venue is a sure fire way to set the tone of your wedding to chilled and fun. It’s an adventure. It’s exciting. And it’s different! There’s still not many couples in NSW who choose to accommodate themselves (or their guests) in a glamping tent on the night of their wedding. 

Glamping is growing in popularity though, which is evident in the expanding number of wedding venues that now offer glamping as an option on their properties. In NSW, glamping venues range from farms to adventure camps to beachside estates to eco lodges and luxury retreats. And the cost of glamping at these venues is just as diverse as what they offer.

Most glamping tents come in two varieties. Portable glamping tents are pitched specifically for your wedding and are taken down again as you head off on your life adventure together. Venues that allow portable glamping tents on their property either own their own tents and they’ll charge you to hire them, or tents are supplied by external suppliers. Some venues will make arrangements with external suppliers for you, while others will request you to engage suppliers directly.

Hiring portable glamping tents usually includes a comfy bed, linen, blankets, pillows, floor rugs and some in-tent furniture like bedside tables and luggage stools. Some also include an outdoor table and chairs for two, or deck chairs.

If you’re going all out and arranging a glamping village to accommodate your entire wedding guest list, you might also hire a communal glamping tent where guests can congregate for small social gatherings, and furniture and furnishings for an outdoor lounge area. This set up is often referred to as a festival style wedding.

The other glamping option which leans towards a more luxury experience is semi-permanent tenting. These tents are usually pitched over the top of, or adjoining a permanent structure like a deck and are not taken down between bookings. What makes this glamping option great are the experiential extras. Like the perfectly private outdoor baths on their decks in which you can relax while sipping a glass of wine while enjoying the breeze and watching the birds. 

Any wedding venue that provides glamping also offers wedding ceremonies and receptions onsite. They are truly all-in-one venues where (aside from a golf buggy or two) transport will not be required for the duration of your stay. Here is our complete list of wedding glamping venues in NSW.

Awesome Barn & Shed Wedding Venues in NSW

Barns and Sheds have recently become some of the most sought after wedding venues in Australia. As more couples look for unique spaces that perfectly suit their personalities and lifestyle, demand for weddings in barns and sheds has soared. And so too has supply. When it comes to finding off-the-grid unique venues, Australia is the wedshed capital of the world. 

Initially inspired by beautifully styled private property weddings that had began appearing on social media, couples started looking for similar options for their own weddings. Farm owners found themselves receiving enquiries about the possibility of hosting weddings on their property. Those queries have steadily increased over the past few years, and in response, so too have the variety of barns and sheds now available for weddings in NSW.

Rustic spaces such as restored hay barns and tractor sheds are readily found in all regions of the state. Their exposed wooden beams, original flooring and corrugated & wrought iron features lend a relaxed and festive atmosphere to off-the-grid weddings. Ideal for rustic and boho weddings, these repurposed structures are easily (and cheaply) glammed up to achieve a modern aesthetic.  

Other rustic style barns and sheds that you can hire as wedding venues in NSW include horse stables and arenas. Long table lunches are particularly well suited in these spaces and there’s usually very little styling required other than the table setting itself.

In recent years, purpose built sheds have sprung up throughout NSW in response to growing demand for the chilled vibe of a barn venue coupled with a fresh and modern aesthetic. White walls, high ceilings, exposed wooden beams, floor to ceiling glass windows and large glass sliding doors make these light filled spaces the perfect blank canvas to style to your own preference.

Barns and sheds are wonderfully understated wedding venues that offer a unique and relaxed setting for laid back events with a fun atmosphere. They're typically large spaces that offer room for a dance floor, photo booth or a break away area that can be easily styled with a few rugs, a pair of velvet couches and a personalised neon sign. One of the great things about properties with barns and sheds for weddings, is that they almost always also offer accommodation onsite. From barn lofts to country estates to cottages or even glamping.

Whether you prefer a repurposed rustic barn or a modern light filled shed, there's a huge range of venues to choose from in NSW.  From working cattle farms to private properties to exclusive retreats - these are the best barn and shed venues for weddings in NSW...

A barn or shed is a wonderful venue choice for couples who want their wedding to be relaxed and fun with the ceremony and reception all in one place. Most of the properties on this list provide accommodation onsite too, so that you can stay the night before your wedding, get ready onsite in the morning and wander ‘home’ after your wedding reception.

With many properties available for your exclusive use for the entire weekend, barn and shed venues offer a very private and intimate setting where you can enjoy the company of your guests for an extended wedding celebration. And while barn weddings are popular, they’re certainly very unique. Having your wedding in a barn or shed is not a celebration that the two of you, or your guests, will quickly forget. 

The above barns and sheds are all wedding venues in NSW. They often book out quickly and we recommend making enquiries 8 months to 2 years in advance. The longer the lead time, the more likely you are to secure your preferred dates.
