Northern Beaches (Sydney)

This location is so magical it’s hard to imagine a better place for a relaxed and romantic Sydney beach wedding. You have the choice of getting married on the sand or on a grassy lookout with heavenly ocean views. Both options are truly special.

Location Highlights: At this location you have the choice of a true beach wedding right on the sand in a tiny little, relatively private area of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Or, you can keep your shoes on and just admire the view from the lookout while you say I Do.

Local features: This patch of the Northern Beaches isn’t as busy as many others, so you won’t be lost in a crowd. Parking is a little easier too! The area of beach we use is a small pocket of sand at one end of the main beach, separated from all the activity by a rock pool, so there’s a little more peace and quiet than you’d expect to find with a Sydney beach wedding. The grass area is also comparatively quiet.

Important things to note: This location is everyone’s favourite on a beautiful summers day. While there are undercover areas we use in poor weather if you have more than a handful of guests you may need umbrellas for them if it’s raining (the couple will be in the VIP sheltered space). While street parking is usually available nearby this area can get busy on sunny weekends and during special events.

Other locations to  consider: We also have another location for a Sydney beach wedding- in the eastern suburbs. For other non-beach options (which are probably more suitable in colder months) check out our most popular location on the harbour, or the stunning parks in Homebush, Petersham, Chatswood, Penrith or Parramatta.
