If you are hoping to have your wedding ceremony here, allow us to help you choose the best place from this list of the best wedding venues in Sydney.
Aqua Dining, Sydney Harbour
If you’ve always dreamed about a wedding in Sydney Harbour, Aqua Dining is a place for you. If you choose to have your wedding here, you’ll have a stunning view of the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Not only will your wedding photos be to-die-for with this backdrop, but all of your guests will be able to enjoy a sophisticated dinner. You can choose between a standard sit-down reception, or try a modern cocktail-style reception instead. Not just that, but the place ‘hovers’ right over the North Sydney Olympic Pool, so you will be able to take a look at how professional swimmers are training, too.
The Avalon, Avalon Beach
If your idea of an ideal wedding is a quiet ceremony on a beautiful beach, no need to venture further than the beautiful Avalon Beach. The Avalon is a venue where you’ll get a spectacular view of the ocean and the sound of waves hitting the shore. This venue can accommodate up to 250 guests and you can enjoy your dream beachside wedding. There is direct access to Avalon Beach, which means that you don’t have to book different locations for the ceremony and the reception. Not to mention that your wedding photos will be wonderful, too.
The Bistro, Manly Pavilion
For those who will never get tired of looking at the harbour, the Bistro and Manly Pavilion is the place to be. The décor is contemporary and incredibly elegant, and you can enjoy the view through its floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the water. There is also a lovely outdoor terrace that overlooks the harbour directly and makes the Bistro a truly stunning waterfront restaurant in Sydney. Panoramic harbour views in the beautiful ballroom will make everyone feel like they’re in a fairy tale.
The Pavilion, Royal Botanic Garden
Couples who would like to escape the familiar scenes and who are looking for something a bit different can find it at the Pavilion.

This means that you will get the best of both worlds: old-school glamour, a touch of contemporary elegance, and the view of the Garden.
