Are you looking for a Blue Mountains wedding venue? Hey! I’m a wedding photographer who loves to shoot weddings in the Blue Mountains in NSW. I have seen my share of wedding venues all over Australia. Some amazing wedding venues and some average venues. So on this page, I’d love to tell you some of my favourite wedding venues and also share some venues I would love to photograph.
There is nowhere quite as majestic or epic as the Blue Mountains. And the Blue Mountains, from a wedding photographer’s point of view, is an absolute playground for a photographer. The amazing scenery and landscapes, tied together with a lovely couple, guarantee beautiful wedding photos.
The landscape of the Blue Mountains isn’t just mountains either. There are elegant five-star resorts, rustic farm venues, beautifully manicured gardens, historic homesteads… and of course those amazing mountains.
So here are my favourite Blue Mountain wedding venues. Some of them I have photographed. And others are on my ‘bucket list’ of venues I would LOVE to photograph a wedding at.
So, in no particular order, here are my favourite Blue Mountains wedding venues.
Waldara Farm is one of my all-time favourite venues in the Blue Mountains region. It is actually about 100km from Katoomba, near Oberon.
Waldara Farm is an 800-hectare working sheep and cattle farm. So it is very rustic, very country but also very modern and extremely well-maintained.
There are two separate houses on-site for you to stay. The ceremony can take place at numerous places around the property. And “the shed” is an amazing wet weather backup ceremony location.
The reception is held in “The Barn”, which is a wonderful wooden barn that can accommodate up to 150 guests.
Address: Burroughs Crossing, Edith
Pro Tip: use google maps and put in “Waldara Farm Wedding Venue”. Otherwise, if you are like me and use a ‘Garmin’ GPS, it will take you somewhere completely in the wrong direction.
