There are also private estates, parks, and gardens available for those couples looking for something a little more romantic or rustic.

Popular Sydney Wedding Venues & Prices

You might think that a large city such as Sydney won’t have affordable wedding venues, but you can easily find wedding packages as low as $50 per person in the city! More luxurious wedding venues may charge up to $160 per head, and the most luxurious venues can charge well over this amount. Of course, you can expect the venue hire fee and additional venue costs to be much higher for larger wedding parties. Make sure to read the fine print, so you know exactly what is included in an “all-inclusive” package! Some of the most popular Sydney wedding venues include Le Montage, the Park Hyatt Sydney, Pier One Sydney Harbour, and Curzon Hall.

Travel & Hotel Accommodations

The Sydney Airport is located about 20 minutes away from the city centre, and most Sydney wedding venues are located within a half hour’s drive. Your guests may also opt to take the train, which runs every 10 minutes and conveniently runs to the city from Terminal 1. The airport is a major international hub and services local, continental, and international flights, so your guests should have no difficulty flying into Sydney.

Weather and Climate Considerations

The weather in Sydney, New South Wales is quite nice throughout the year and seasons, with the warmest summer months reaching an average of 26°C (January and February) and the average temperature during winter months (April to September) is 8°C. However, there can be a fair bit of precipitation in the area, with as many as 9 days of the month experiencing rainfall. Typically, the summer to fall months experience the most precipitation and some severe storms. As always, we suggest ensuring that your outdoor reception and ceremony venues have an adequate covering or backup spaces in case of rain or other inclement weather. The summer months, December to February, are ideal for weddings.
