Tips and Ideas for Garden Weddings in Sydney

A garden wedding can be a great way to celebrate your love with friends and family. It's also a perfect setting for photos and videos, especially if you have a large backyard or a balcony overlooking the garden. Here are some tips to help you plan a successful garden wedding:

1. Choose Your Location Wisely

The first step is choosing a stunning location that best suits your needs. For example, if you want a romantic backdrop, there's no better place than Sydney CBD. The city centre offers breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, Hyde Park and Sydney Opera House.

If you're looking for privacy, you can find many outdoor locations outside the city centre as well. What about a country wedding venue where you'll be able to enjoy the scenery without being seen by too many people in a secluded setting? You can take a look at Dundas Valley and Centennial Park. These outdoor ceremony locations offer spectacular views, manicured gardens and stunning backdrops for your wedding day.

There are also many waterfront venues in this beautiful city. If you're looking for a pretty beachfront wedding venue, you can check out the Northern Beaches, Whale Beach, Watsons Bay, Maroubra Beach, Bondi Beach and more. These wedding celebration locations offer stunning views and a perfect backdrop for photos.

2. Pick Your Flowers Carefully

If you're planning a garden wedding reception, you need flowers that won't wilt quickly. Try to pick flowers that bloom year-round, such as roses, peonies, lilies, daisies, tulips, carnations, hydrangeas, and dahlias. Avoid plants that require lots of water because they will likely die out quickly. Instead, opt for those that grow naturally in dry conditions.

3. Consider Your Wedding Guests' Comfort

If you're having guests over for an intimate wedding outdoors, think about their comfort level. Some people aren't comfortable sitting outside in the heat, so you may want to find another place for them to sit. Also, ensure there's enough seating for everyone. Don't forget to provide drinks and snacks for your guests, too.

4. Plan Ahead

You should start planning your wedding months ahead of time to give yourself plenty of time to get everything done. This includes finding the perfect venue among dozens of Sydney wedding venues, picking your flowers, making arrangements, and getting all the necessary permits for public outdoor spaces. Make sure you do this early, as you don't want to rush into things later.

5. Have Fun With Photos And Videos

You can use your garden wedding as a photoshoot for your big day. Take advantage of natural lighting, sweeping views, and picturesque backdrop and try different poses. Be creative when taking pictures, and remember to smile!

6. Include Food

Food plays a significant role in most events, especially in an outdoor wedding reception. It helps set the mood, creates memories, and keeps your guests happy. So, make sure you include food and drink options in your menu. You can serve hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, tacos, ice cream, cake, cookies, and other treats.

7. Decide On A Theme

A theme is an overall concept that you want to incorporate into your dream wedding venue. For example, some couples have a beach-themed celebration with stunning ocean views, while others have a romantic rustic wedding in a lovely garden with manicured lawns. To help you come up with a theme, consider the season, the weather, the venue, and any special events that might occur during your wedding.
