Admission: we were banking on this headline drawing you in. However, these are just some of the most beautiful blank-canvas wedding venues Australia has to offer. The truth is, there are so many more out there (which you can search here).

But a shortlist isn’t a shortlist unless it’s just that (i.e, not several hundred venues deep), so we’ve gathered some of our favourite spaces for couples wanting to use their imagination and create a completely customised celebration. It’s a popular alternative to venues that only offer set menus, strict ceremony times and a bunch of other do’s and don’t’s.
