Wedding Venues in NSW North Coast

Elizabeth Blyth, our wedding planner from NSW North Coast shared with some of her favourite venues in Newcastle and the Northern end of NSW

The Greenhouse Eatery

An exceptional team of hospitality professionals run your day with commitment and attention to detail at The Greenhouse.

The venue is a one-stop shop with ceremony, photo locations/pre-dinner garden area and reception space all in one. It is situated on the renowned Pacific Dunes golf course so if you are looking for stunning manicured greens, lush bushland and water views, this is your place.

48 Watt St

This is a unique and fantastic venue in the heart of Newcastle city – the converted church oozes charm (think, vaulted ceilings and stain glass!). Celebrate your marriage, make the most of the covered atrium space and enjoy your reception in the white hall.

A gorgeous waterfront property with accommodation on site! The whole place screams historic charm. Get married under the iconic tree or overlooking the water, make the most of manicured grounds and water views for your photos and pre-dinner on a recently converted barn for reception.  Lots of flexibility in design and catering!


Its Rick Steins new hotel. Its a revamp of an old 60s fave hotel in Port Stephens and they have just opened, so starting weddings soon. Right on the water- bloody beautiful, all guests can stay on-site. The food is insanely good especially if you are a seafood lover.

Merewether Surfhouse

With a variety of spaces to suit various sized events, make the most of this venue in summer when the days are long and the views go on and on and on… A modern and professional venue for all events.

So you can’t have the wedding you want unless you know what you want, right?

And even if you THINK you know what that is, it’s unlikely that you and your partner have really, truly uncovered it (because it’s usually hidden beneath a whole lot of confusing opinions, rules, fears and worries).

So we thought it might help if we showed you how uncover what perfect means to you (the results may surprise you!), help you to create your very own, personalised wedding ‘blueprint’,  and then get you on track to actually making it happen.

We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.

We didn't have to worry about anything except getting ourselves ready on the day - she really helped make sure everything went off without a hitch
