There’s a new trend emerging in the wedding world, and it’s all about having an epic celebration with just your nearest and dearest. Weddings are smaller in size but grander in scale, and they’re the perfect way to tie the knot without all the fuss and fanfare.
To help our couples plan their smaller Big Day, we’ve put together a hand-picked list of the top 7 small and mid-sized wedding venues in Sydney. We’ve also included a few photo samples and links to real weddings for a total blast of wedding planning inspo.
One of our couples had the best experience with the Opera House and their event partner, Trippas White Group. You’ll never believe it, but they had to find an indoor wedding venue just two days before their wedding due to unstoppable rain. And the Opera House was able to accommodate them—in March, one of the most popular months for weddings in Sydney! This wedding was even featured in Hello May magazine.
There is a venue hire fee, a minimum spend on food and beverages, and a fee to arrange wedding photography access for photos in the interiors. But hey, it’s the Opera House! It’s worth it, right?
