Sydney Wedding Ceremony Venues

Looking for a wedding ceremony venue in Sydney? Ceremony venues in Sydney come in two main varieties. There are public locations where you can tie the knot in local parks & gardens, or you can book a private wedding venue that offers ceremony packages.

Public wedding ceremony venues in Sydney usually attract a booking fee via the appropriate local council. Some parks and beaches do not attract a fee so if you're on a budget and have time to research you'll find free ceremony venues in several outdoor Sydney locations.

The ceremony locations on this list are private wedding venues that you can hire for your nuptials without the requirement of also holding your reception onsite. Most have a 2 hour minimum hire period giving you time to have wedding photos afterwards. If you're eloping, consider adding additional hours to your ceremony hire package for champagne & cake after saying "I do".

Here are 10 unique wedding ceremony locations in Sydney.
