40 Backyard Wedding Ideas For Creative Couples 

Amazing Backyard Wedding Venue
1. Find an amazing backyard wedding venue

The best backyard weddings are hosted in uniquely atmospheric outdoor spaces. Find a backyard wedding venue that oozes the kind of character and intimate vibes you're aiming for. Examples include the repurposed St Joseph's Guesthouse near Sydney with its dramatic church facade or the pretty Tuscan courtyard at Redleaf Estate in the Hunter Valley.

One of the best things about booking a backyard wedding venue is that they typically come with a built-in wet weather option. That means you don't have to hire an external structure such as a marquee which is a saving of around $8 - $10k for a 100 person wedding.

For couples wanting a ceremony-only package, please note many chapels at the destination wedding venues listed above may allow you to book just a ceremony if its mid week and within 3 months of your wedding Higher revenue bookings need to be prioritised at other times but most venues love to accommodate couples wherever they can. So if you're in love with a specific wedding chapel, don't be scared to ask.
