40 Farm Wedding Venues in NSW

Farm Wedding Venue NSW

Farm wedding venues are in plentiful supply in NSW, with the state offering a variety of rural properties for those wishing to have a farm wedding. From working cattle & sheep farms to farm stays and barn weddings - rural wedding venues in NSW cater to just about every type of farm wedding you could imagine.

If you’re tossing up whether to have a farm wedding on a rural property, there are plenty of benefits. Farm weddings seem to have a unique intimacy about them that bring family and friends together like you've never been apart. Maybe it's the wide open space or the fresh country air or the leisurely way in which the sheep and cattle go about grazing in their paddocks. Conversation comes easy on a farming property. The pace is slower. Time is free.

Getting married in the country is easy too. Farm venues don’t have parking meters or parking rangers or even painted parking spots. Just drive on in - and don’t block the gate. Easy. Have your ceremony under the tree or in the gardens or next to the dam. Easy. If it’s sunny and warm, tables & chairs and epic styling can be enjoyed under the stars. Or take the fun inside. Whatever you like.

Here’s another reason to have a farm wedding: You’ll be supporting the sustainability of a local community and their businesses. When you have your wedding in a rural area and your guests stay, eat and shop locally, you contribute to that region’s local economy. Nowhere are communities more in need of the support from out-of-towners than rural areas. Particularly after droughts, fires or random pangolin-blamed viruses. The financial impact of which, have a devastating effect on farming industries. 

So without further ado, here are 40 Farm Wedding Venues in NSW...

About Farm Weddings in NSW

Over the last few years many couples have opted out of an urban wedding preferring instead the laid back country landscape as a backdrop for their special day. Farm wedding venues also provide a wonderful opportunity to DIY & BYO everything from food & beverage to styling. The glossy pages of Australia’s wedding magazines are regularly adorned with detailed images of beautifully styled spaces framed by unexpected country landscapes. Regional locations lend something different to weddings, which is perhaps why farms are now highly sought after venues.

Farm weddings became popular when rustic barns and converted hay sheds began popping up on Pinterest. Jars of hand picked flowers, cheese platters on tree stumps and hessian table runners took over and #rusticweddinginspo was the social media tag to follow. Rural councils received a flurry of applications from NSW landowners wanting to become wedding venues. Farm venues started to become more plentiful and easier to find.

Since the birth of the unique shed wedding we've seen the innovation of horse stable weddings, outdoor & undercover cattle yard weddings, flower farm ceremonies and reception venues made of all sorts of other repurposed rural amenities and structures.

Several purpose built barns have sprung up across the NSW landscape in recent years offering a modern and edgy option so that you can now have a shed wedding without the rustic hashtag. These modern wedding barns have the benefit of being truly blank canvases that you can decorate however you like.

Farm Stays and farmlets are another great option for a relaxed country wedding and come with all sorts of animals in residence. The difference between a farm stay or farmlet and a proper working farm is in the size of the herd. Or flock. Or huddle - which incidentally, is the collective noun for a group of walrus. Not a farm animal exactly, but essential trivia knowledge nonetheless. #MostImpressiveAnswer-of-the-Night!

One of the best things about farm weddings is that they provide a unique opportunity to have an extended celebration across an entire weekend. Farm venues usually offer exclusive use of the entire property and most have accommodation onsite. Hence, a farm wedding is a great opportunity to bring everyone together for an extended period to enjoy the company of loved ones, including at pre-wedding and post-wedding events. 

Farm weddings are as unique and memorable as they are relaxed and fun. Pick your favourite farm venues from the above list and enquire early. They book out fast. Happy planning.
