Top 10 venues in NSW for a farm wedding

We absolutely love a farm wedding. A wedding is already magical and unique, but a picturesque farm setting just takes it to that gorgeous next level. And these farm wedding venues in NSW are just perfect for that.

To be a fantastic farm wedding venue, it has to meet two rather large requirements; it has to be a lovely working farm, and it has to be a full-service reception venue as well. These are difficult things to combine and pull off well, but the farms on our list have done this beautifully.

For your idyllic farm wedding you might be looking for:

  • Tons of dramatic and luscious scenery and natural backgrounds for photos
  • Whimsical farm touches such as hay bales, ancient tractors or horse-drawn carriages
  • A refurbished old barn or woolshed for your perfect rustic country celebration, or a perfectly-positioned marquee
  • Lots of animals for sweet wedding photos
  • A seamless blend of indoors and out, with the ability to dance or relax under a multitude of stars
  • All of the creature comforts we need, including protection from the elements and working bathrooms.
  • And so much more!

At Easy Weddings, we don’t ask for much, do we?
