For many couples-to-be, choosing a wedding venue is arguably one of the hardest decisions of the wedding planning process. Not only does it set the scene for the celebrations, but it’s where everything on your wedding day is going to happen. The dining, the dancing, the cutting of the cake and more. And, with the venue, comes an array of questions. What theme are you going for? Will you hold the ceremony and reception in the same location? Are you planning a local or destination wedding? Whether you’re looking to book your wedding in Sydney or regional NSW, we’ve compiled a list of five unique wedding venues in NSW to get you inspired.

Unique Venue 3: The Freedom Hub | Waterloo

Located in the heart of Waterloo, this one of a kind ethical wedding venue is perfect for couples looking to align their big day and budgets with a just cause. All profits from your wedding support people who have experienced human trafficking within Australia. The large, white warehouse space features floor to ceiling windows and multitudes of fairy lights hanging from the exposed steel beams above. 100-year-old concrete floors with crushed river pebbles and ample natural light make this space the perfect blank canvas to host your dream event.

Why do we love this unique wedding venue?

We love that The Freedom Hub is a non-traditional wedding venue for those conscious couples looking to use their big day for good.

Unique Venue 4: Terrara House | Shoalhaven

With its history rooted in the Shoalhaven district, the property began as the famous Etienne De Mestre’s horse farm, which produced five Melbourne Cup-winning horses. Since then, it’s gone on to become one of the country’s most exclusive private wedding venues. The property features 17 acres of manicured gardens, maze hedges, the finest historic mansion on the South Coast, and a purpose-built marble salon and spa.

Why do we love this unique venue?

Terrara House offers unparalleled luxury and oozes sophistication. Often described as one of NSW’s best-kept secrets, this property ensures your guests are completely pampered.
