Awesome Barn & Shed Wedding Venues in NSW

Barns and Sheds NSW

Barns and Sheds have recently become some of the most sought after wedding venues in Australia. As more couples look for unique wedding locations for their ceremony and reception, demand for barn venues, sheds and other farm locations has soared. And so too has supply. When it comes to finding off-the-grid unique wedding venues for a barn wedding, Australia is the wed shed capital of the world. 

Initially inspired by beautifully styled private farm weddings that had began appearing on social media, couples started looking for similar barn venues 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 barn wedding venues and shed locations now available for hire 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 barn wedding venues in NSW include horse stables and arenas. Long table weddings are particularly well suited in these reception spaces and there’s usually very little styling required other than the table setting itself.

In recent years, purpose built wedding 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 venues 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 farms with wedding barns and sheds, is that they almost always also offer accommodation onsite. From barn lofts to country estates to farm stays to homesteads, cottages or even glamping.

Whether you prefer a repurposed rustic barn or a modern light filled shed, there's a huge range of barn wedding 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 venue is a wonderful 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. 

Some of the barn wedding venues listed above are among the most popular wedding locations 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 wedding date at your favourite barn venue.
