Cheapest wedding venues in Sydney, my top choices

So Sydney is renown for being a rather expensive city to live. But let me assure you, we have some of the cheapest wedding venues around. You just have to do your research. Well lucky for you, I’ve been photographing weddings for 25 years and been to so many venues, some of these on list will honestly surprise you.

Waterfront Function centre San Souci

Bliss, has the most amazing views, especially at sunset, fantastic for those brides and grooms who love Waterviews. The waterfront has a spectacular  mariner for photos and they accommodate ceremonies onsite as well. With 3 rooms to choose from, they can look after any number of guest. From small intimate weddings of 40 people to large gatherings of over 250!

Its close to beaches, parks, bridges, waterways, it simply is just amazing and a must see.

1908:  Cronulla

This venue use to be an old library. So as you can image it has so much charm!

A little restaurant, walking distance to North Cronulla beach.  Seats upto 120, but there are options for smaller rooms with 30 people if you are having an intimate wedding. Also cater for an indoor ceremony!

Ottimo Houe: Denham Court

This venue will make you feel like your down the south coast! Its set on a huge property, with rustics sheds and rolling hills. Perfect for keeping your wedding in one spot! You can even get yourself some real horses from the stables up the hill. Yep they will bring them down for your photo shoot! Just to give you a real out of Sydney feel!

Tumbling Waters Stanwell tops

They do the cutest elopement packages here. And the view is second to none! One of the only wedding venues I know that allows you to bring alcohol, yep, its unheard of! They also hire out their venue just for wedding ceremonies which is pretty unique. If your after a very intimate secluded ceremony site this is simply perfect!

Cheapest wedding venues in sydney

Doltone House: Sylvania, Jones bay wharf

With venues in the shire and in the city, they are are extremely competitive in the market place. My favourite would would Sylvania waters. (slightly bias being a Sutherland Shire Photographer) They accommodate really large weddings of 300 plus, but also manage weddings just under 100 guests.

La Aqua Darling Harbour. Darling Harbour

If you love a little bit if the city, then this ones a must. Nestled in darling harbour it looks beautiful in the day and night. Again this is one of those large chain wedding venues that is super competitive, and offers some of the best value for the heart of the city! I love that guest can grab a drink and chat on the veranda surrounded by the lights and boats of the harbour!

Zimzala: Cronulla

When I say on the beach, its on the beach! Another small intimate place in the Sutherland shire! Full glass windows looking out to the water. You can have your ceremony just out front (slightly left) in a little cove away from the walking traffic. Its really has a fresh beachy water feel inside too!

Panorama House Bulli Tops

In between the Sutherland shire  and Wollongong set on a cliff literally! So, amazing views to the city of wollongong  and the beach. A number of function rooms to suite small and large weddings. A cute little gazebo set  on a hill! Just a short drive down Bulli pass to Austimer beach for some photos. Sandon point is not too far either and it  takea a great photo!

Burnham Grove Estate: Camden

What I  love about this place is the little homestead (among other things, the bride, family and bridesmaides, can get ready in there. Doesn’t that make things way easier, when it comes to wedding preparations?

It has the most beautiful gardens, and choice of a few for your ceremony! Green gardens, water features and rustic old wooden sheds. Another one of those Sydney venues that has a southern highland feel….without the drive 😉

Burham Grove Weddings

Cropley House  Baulkham Hills

A gorgeous  historic mansion that has a  cute little private gazebo out the back  and amazing lavender vines out the front of the building. Oozing elegance and grandeur, this charming venue is a perfect one stop shop if you’re after a ceremony and reception in the same location
