Weekend Wedding Venues

Looking for a weekend wedding venue? Weekend wedding places in NSW include a great range of overnight destinations with accommodation onsite. From weekend venues that sleep 100, to intimate spots that accommodate just the two of you, New South Wales has loads of cool places to hire for a 3 day wedding weekend getaway.

Whole weekend wedding venues in NSW are typically exclusive-use destinations that include a minimum 2 night stay. These full weekend venues range from beachfront resorts and luxury houses to country retreats and farms.

Weekend wedding packages that include accommodation are usually charged as a set venue hire fee which in NSW ranges from $2,850 - $45,000. The venue hire fee covers use of all accommodation and event venues on the property and any onsite furniture & tableware.

The priciest spots for weekend venue hire are private use hotels and resorts which sleep more than 100 guests. The venue hire fee at these places is a minimum accommodation spend. Guests can book and pay their own accommodation directly with the venue, with each payment deducted from the venue hire amount.

If a weekend wedding venue doesn't offer guest payment facilities, you can always set up your own with Eventbrite

Here's a list of weekend wedding venues in NSW that offer overnight or 3 day weekend wedding packages with accommodation onsite.
