How To Find The Best Perth Wedding Venues
By Darcy Allen /Melbourne Venue ExpertWed 7th Dec 2022 Wedding Venues
From the turquoise seas and pristine beaches surrounding Perth to the boutique wineries and craft breweries of the Margaret River, WA is a gorgeous place to host your wedding. But where are all the best wedding venues in Perth?
They’re tucked into the winding winery-laden roads of the Margaret River and dotted all along the coastline. They’re in the heart of the city, and trickled throughout the suburbs. From chandelier-studded ballrooms to rustic country farmstays and barns, there are plenty of Perth wedding venue styles to choose from and make your wedding feel like a unique reflection of you.
To pick the best wedding venue for your day, the biggest factors to consider are the atmosphere you want to create and what’s included in the offerings of an individual wedding venue. For tips, recommendations, and all the insider info, our Perth wedding venue experts are ready to help you find the perfect fit for your wedding. Simply get in touch for a chat about what you’re looking for in a venue.
Consider the atmosphere you want for your wedding
Planning a wedding that’s like a fancied-up version of your favourite cocktail hour spot on the beach? The kind of event where you’ve got your feet in the sand while sunset dances on the horizon? What you’re looking for is a Perth wedding venue like Barefoot Beach Weddings. Here, you can gather your friends and family on the beach for your waterfront wedding ceremony before heading to a large deck on the beach for cocktails and canapés.
If your wedding inspiration boards are packed with images of countryside scenery, farm-fresh flowers, and beautiful barn settings, a rustic wedding venue is probably going to be right up your alley. For this, we’d suggest a venue like Rose Social in Baldivis. It’s the kind of place where you’ll host your ceremony amidst hundreds of roses or overlooking the Baldivis Salt Lake. When it’s time for cocktail hour, your guests can meander the gardens and heart-shaped labyrinth before heading to the rustic open-air barn for your reception.
Check out the wedding package inclusions
Perth wedding packages run the gamut from all-inclusive venues to countryside barns where you’re just hiring the venue and bringing in everything else via hire companies. To keep things really simple — which is always our preference — we recommend opting for a venue that includes everything you need to pull off a gorgeous wedding. The two venues that immediately spring to mind are Buckland Estate and Hyatt Regency Perth.
Set in the beautiful Avon Valley, Buckland Estate provides a gorgeous backdrop for a rustic wedding that’s a more refined than your typical barn or homestead venue. The grounds include a stately manor, two charming cottages, glamping tents, expansive lawns, and a peaceful lake.
The thing we love most about Buckland Estate is that the wedding packages are all about what you want. You’ll have the option to use their all-inclusive wedding package that brings together a wedding planner, musician, photographer, styling, furniture, flowers, catering, a cake, and a celebrant. Or, you can opt to put together your own preferred list of suppliers and hire just the venue and overnight accommodations for the weekend. Just in it for a ceremony spot? There’s an option for that too.
Hyatt Regency Perth is more of the glamorous, urban pick of the bunch. It’s the kind of wedding venue where you’ll know exactly what you’re signing up for — a romantic ballroom, excellent service, comfy overnight accommodations, and straightforward package inclusions.
At Hyatt Regency Perth, not only are all the basic requirements met for your wedding, but most wedding packages also include things that might elsewhere be considered add-ons. Think refreshments for the wedding party while you’re getting ready, overnight accommodations for you as a couple, complimentary food menu tastings prior to the wedding, and even valet parking for a few cars (all based on a minimum food and beverage spend, of course).
Call in the big guns
Most couples have never planned a major event, let alone a wedding. So, it’s not likely that you’ll know what to look for in a wedding venue, or what to avoid. At Venue Crew, we have a team of experienced wedding planners who know all the local venues and can share valuable insights with you about each venue’s wedding packages, atmosphere, inclusions, menu options, discounted dates — basically all the info you miss when you just browse online.
Give us a shout and we’ll talk you through the best options for the wedding *you’re* planning. We’ll sort through the best Perth wedding venues together and just suggest venues that feel like the right fit based on your timing, budget, style, and personality. And, of course, our service is entirely free to couples.
