Beach Wedding Venues Sydney

Looking for the best beach wedding venues in Sydney? We have search Sydney and the surrounding suburbs for the very best Sydney beach wedding venues that are located right on or very near to the beach. And the venues here are right near the beach. Not a few kilometres from the beach or a drive to the beach. They are right there, so you can get those ocean views and just walk to get some sand between your toes.

Beach weddings can be some of the most beautiful and special weddings around. If you are a water person and love the ocean, then a beach wedding is something you should strongly consider.

Just a few tips for your beach wedding in Sydney. The sand is not always good for you and your guests. It can be hard to walk in and especially difficult for older guests including your grandparents. Most beaches will have a grassy park area just up from the beach. So this is always a great option.

In most cases, a wedding ceremony right on the beach doesn’t offer any shade. So I wouldn’t recommend a beach ceremony with no shade in summer. Try it for the cooler months. If you are doing a summer beach wedding, look for some areas on the beach that might provide shade. Trees or cliff areas are a good choice. Also, provide parasols and water to keep your guests comfortable from the sun and the heat.

So let’s get on with it. Here are my favourite and therefore the best beach wedding venue in Sydney. And hopefully one of these venues will be perfect for your wedding.
