Venues and your Wedding Ceremony

The area that I service has it all. For instance;


  • Newcastle is superb with stunning beaches, beautiful parks and gardens, top-of-the-line restaurants and innumerable locations for open air weddings.

  • Port Stephens is the gateway to Nirvana where the whales come to play and the cobalt blue of the sky reflects the aquamarine of the sea.

  • The Hunter Valley is elegance personified with its genteel, congenial wedding locations set amongst rustic wineries to rival the best of Bordeaux and Burgundy

  • Lake Macquarie is mystical and romantic with restaurants and wedding venues set amongst idyllic park lands that border the largest inland lake in Australia.

Parks, beaches and gardens are popular choices. However, if choosing an outdoor venue you should always have a contingency plan for inclement weather. Don't forget to check with the local council to ensure the venue you selected is free on the day.


Local halls, golf clubs, RSL and Workers clubs and restaurants are also viable venues. On a boat cruising the river or harbour, in a plane or hot air balloon high above the clouds are other exciting alternate venues. There are also commercial function centres and needless to say, vineyards and wineries are excellent venues for celebrations, all of which are located through the internet.


Your garden is also a delightful place for a ceremony. If you're budget sensitive please contact me to discuss a garden wedding.


Check the suitability of your wedding venue and book early!


Don't forget to check that your venue will enhance your photos. Your photos are a permanent record of your special day and you will want the best results possible. For an outside ceremony early in the morning or late in the afternoon, determine the sunrise and sunset time and investigate the quality of light available to ensure sufficient light for photography and of course, document signing.


Regardless of whether your ceremony is in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, or Hunter Valley, the venue for weddings or any other celebration can be almost any place you wish as long as it is accessible by all involved.
