Marquee wedding in Sydney

Perfect wedding marquee locations outside of Sydney

We love a good marquee wedding just as much as the next person. Over the years, Bailey and I have been up and down NSW creating the perfect marquee weddings for our beautiful couples. We previously covered where you can find the best marquee wedding locations in Sydney, but we thought we’d also share our favourite venues across the state that are just as breathtaking – think sprawling views, no noise restrictions and accommodation options for you and guests.

Why choose to have a marquee wedding outside of Sydney?


Having a marquee wedding in Sydney is great, but the amount of options you have to choose from are limited. This could be due to venue size restrictions, certain packages required by venues, or council regulations (if you’re choosing a park or reserve). Traditionally, marquee weddings have been suited for wedding parties with less than 100 pax, but with marquee weddings becoming more popular, there have been couples with 100+ pax requesting to have their reception inside a marquee. This can be difficult for Sydney venues to accommodate given that their land size is smaller.


Marquee wedding locations outside of Sydney, however, usually have space to cater for more guests as they’re situated in a regional area. These venues also have DIY options available, meaning that you can bring in your own vendors, for example, your favourite caterer or charger plates you already have at home. They are also more flexible in terms of bump in and bump out times, and some venues offer accommodation on-site or deals with local hotels so you can stay overnight and explore the surrounding area after your big day.

Alternative wedding marquee options for your intimate wedding


Acreage homes or farmlands are other great options to look at if you want to host your marquee wedding elsewhere. If you have access to these venues, even better! Be sure to factor in travel arrangements for all your guests, and other amenities such as toilets, a suitable catering space and power.
