A Guide to Having the Perfect Harbour Wedding

For many couples living in Sydney (and indeed, many living outside of Sydney as well), the ultimate wedding location is the picturesque Sydney Harbour. The body of water that most defines this beautiful city and one of the prettiest natural elements of Sydney. Whether it’s a Sydney Harbour cruise or a quiet beachside ceremony, there’s no denying that a Sydney Harbour wedding makes your special occasion even more special.

If you’re a bride (or groom) to be and you’re planning a Sydney Harbour wedding, this guide has all the tips and tricks you’ll need, enjoy!


Most couples who want to enjoy the beauty of Sydney Harbour for their special day make the mistake of assuming that Sydney Harbour only incorporates the area right in the centre of the city. If you want to get married right underneath the Bridge or on the steps of the Opera House then this is obviously where you will need to be, but don’t forget that the harbour stretches quite a way around Sydney, with plenty of secluded spots which offer more privacy, as well as a million dollar view!

North Sydney is a great option for people wanting to be up-close and personal without being smack bang in the middle of the tourist crowds. But if you’re looking for a truly romantic and whimsical spot, some of the small harbour beaches in the Eastern Suburbs make the perfect location for your nuptials. If you prefer to celebrate on the water, there are plenty of cruise companies and boat charters that will be able to make this happen for you.

Booking Ahead

If you think that Sydney Harbour is a good spot to get married, you also have to realise that half of the country does as well. This means that booking a location and reception venue can be tricky, as they fill up months—sometimes years—in advance. An increasingly popular trend is for couples to book their wedding for the Friday afternoon, instead of a weekend day. This not only lowers the price of the booking, but also allows you to choose a date closer to when you were hoping for.


Being such a large city, Sydney is the kind of place where finding what you want for your special day—whether it be a series of tiny macaroons bearing your initials or a giant arrangement of
flowers hanging over the altar—is not an issue. The main thing to remember when you’re organising the little things like decorations, invitations and party favours is to plan ahead. If you tick these off the list early on in the piece it will make all the difference later on.

It’s also worth checking with the venue/boat hire service as to how and when everything can be set up. You don’t want to be running around the morning of your wedding trying to hang ribbons on chairs, so it’s best to delegate or hire someone from the venue to organise it for you.

Celebrating the happiest day of your lives in one of the most beautiful spots in the world is sure to be an occasion you’ll never forget.
