Wedding Venues

Selected Additional Outdoor Venues

In addition to those described under Value Packages (Kirribilli and Nurragingi) I have selected these marriage venues for affordability, ambience, convenience and overall features.

Tips for Choosing a Wedding Venue for Ceremony and Reception

  • Choose a scenic venue for great photos 
  • Some park venues are free, some provide shelter
  • Some park venues do not require a booking fee
  • Check parking and shade for wedding guests
  • Before you choose a date and book your reception, check my availability
  • Some reception centres provide outdoor areas for the ceremony
  • Some popular City locations, however attractive, have significant disadvantages - expensive, difficult for parking, noisy.

 If you have a venue in mind I can discuss it with you.
