    Our Guide to Beach Wedding Venues in Sydney

    From Bondi Beach to Mosman and everywhere between, Sydney’s beach wedding venues are scattered across varying landscapes, bays, and beaches. Location is the first thing to decide in determining which venue is best for your wedding.

    Do you want to be close to public transport links? Do you want guests to be able to arrive on the ferry? Where will most guests be coming from? Do you need to book a venue that’s within walking distance to hotels? These are all questions that might help you hone in on your ideal wedding location. From there, you’ll be able to open your search up to the beach that best suits your party crowd.

    A common misconception about beach weddings is that they take place exclusively on the beach. In reality, most couples opt to host just their ceremony on the beach and take their guests to an indoor or alfresco venue with beach views for the reception. This allows more flexibility for catering, decor, and all of the other wedding day details.

    If you’re unsure about the exact location, but know you want a wedding venue with beach views, our local Sydney Venue Specialists can help you narrow down your options and select the venue that best suits your style. Contact us today  for help finding a beach wedding venue that not only matches your key requirements but also exceeds your expectations.


    Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Decide Whether You Want A Beach Ceremony

    What’s your wedding vision? Are you picturing saying your vows with your toes in the sand? Or are beach views enough for your ceremony? Answering these questions will help you decide how flexible your beach wedding concept is, allowing our VenueCrew to swoop in and suggest the best spot for your wedding.

    If your heart is set on marrying on the beach and then walking to a nearby beachfront reception spot Dunbar House at Watsons Bay could be a great fit for you. Each of these venues is walkable to a sandy ceremony spot and features gorgeous waterfront views from inside the reception space.

    If you’re torn between wearing high heels and wanting a beachy wedding atmosphere, why not check out venues that aren’t in the sand? Venues with waterfront views like Zest Beachouse at Point Piper offer amazing views of Sydney Harbour from the comfort of an indoor space with floor-to-ceiling windows.


    Venue Specialist Tip No. 2: Don’t Overlook Hotel Venues

    It’s easy to rule out hotel venues because they don’t have that classic Sydney beachfront venue look and feel, but there are a few hotels that have absolutely gorgeous beach views and cool, modern interiors. 

    A great example of this is Vibe Hotel Rushcutters Bay, which features spectacular views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline from its rooftop pool deck, giving a beachfront feel without the sand. Here, you can embrace that coastal chic wedding vibe without the hassle of getting guests to and from a busy beach. For more info about weddings there, download the Vibe Rushcutters Bay wedding brochure.


    Venue Specialist Tip No. 3: Consider Accessibility

    Beaches can be tough for guests to access, especially if you have any wedding guests in wheelchairs. This is where waterfront venues really shine, as you get the beach wedding vibes without having to bring in special equipment to accommodate everyone.

    Zest Boathouse at the Spit is another great waterfront option that has a beachy feel without the sand-in-toes location. It’s also a very modern venue with stylish interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows. For more info including packages and pricing, download the Boathouse at the Spit wedding brochure.


    Venue Specialist Tip No. 4: Contact Us For A Free Consultation

    Search the web for a “waterfront wedding venue near me,” or cut your research time half and give our local Sydney Venue Specialists a shout . Within a quick conversation, they’ll be able to tell you which venues have private beach access, which ones overlook the waterfront, and what venues are within walking distance of beach ceremony locations. They’ll even sort your site inspections for you and get your contract started with whichever beachfront venue you love.
