Northern Beaches Top 10 Wedding Venues for 2021
Finding a wedding venue can be a headache. Between collaborating with your spouse-to-be and their family to agree on something that aligns with everybody’s taste as well as finding a beautiful-yet-affordable location, the process of choosing a place to get married can be downright overwhelming. I’ve heard countless stories from clients and friends about how they wished they had some trusted suggestions. After living on the Northern Beaches for nearly over 30 years and being in the wedding industry for over 10 years, I have curated a list of The Top 10 Northern Beaches Wedding Venues to help you plan your dream wedding.
1. The Boathouse Palm Beach
Located on the Peninsula of Pittwater in iconic Palm Beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, The Boathouse offers a private and tranquil waterfront setting with spectacular panoramic water views. The Boathouse is perfect for both a wedding ceremony and reception, as well as any style of special event. Be aware that The Boathouse Palm Beach tends to get a lot of enquiries and, fills up quite quickly. If you are considering getting married there, it’s probably best to get in touch now and get a date on the calendar.

2. Pasadena Sydney
Pasadena Sydney is a historic 1930s waterfront restaurant that has been resurrected thanks to a local couple. Abandoned back in 2009, Pasadena finally reopened after extensive renovations — in late 2018 on the northern beaches and has quickly become one of the hottest wedding venues in Sydney.
Set on the tip of Pittwater’s Church Point, one-hour drive north of the CBD, the venue offers unobstructed views of McCarrs Creek and parts of the Ku-ring-gai National Park. Its facelift included a restaurant, bar, and a 14-room boutique hotel to boot. I recently photographed a beautiful wedding at Pasadena Sydney, view the full wedding and many amazing photos here.

With sweeping ocean views as your natural backdrop, there’s no better way to say I do. Whether you’re picturing an intimate gathering, lavish canape soiree, or sit-down banquet, your day will unfold exactly how you imagine.
Finished with grey wash timber flooring, private bar, lush greenery, and a large alfresco space, the Dojo’s also wedding-ready just as it is, so you can choose to decorate as little or as much as you wish.
