T’is the season to get married. Yes, it’s Spring again. And we’re understandably excited.

Long tables on grassy lawns, sparkling water views, sweet-scented blossoms – there’s a lot to love about getting hitched in the season of renewal.

Let’s face it, now is a good time to get married anywhere. But we’ve pulled together 12 particularly Spring-suited venues from our collection (you can search the whole lot here too).


Camp David Farm

Daylesford and The Macedon Ranges, VIC

Spring is the perfect season to take advantage of Camp David Farm’s stunning outlook and host an outdoor ceremony surrounded by oak trees. There is plenty of lawn for a marquee or tipi reception, otherwise The Barn provides a rustic indoor option that opens out onto the rest of the property. There’s also a lovely farm cottage that sleeps 10.

Three Blue Ducks Byron Bay

Byron Bay, NSW

This place is great any time of year but in Spring it’s particularly special. It’s when baby animals are born and farm life is set in motion. Set on 80 acres of lush countryside just outside Byron Bay’s main hub, the food is delicious (and ethically sourced) and the sheltered deck makes for an epic springtime reception space.

The Australian Botanic Garden

Sydney, NSW

This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Come spring the grass is green, the flowers are in full bloom and, when you add a bride and groom to the mix (or bride and bride or groom and groom), magic happens. As a bonus, there are plenty of ceremony and reception spots too that can accommodate up to 300 guests.

Mayfield

Country NSW, NSW

Yep, this place is nuts. Located in Oberon, past the Blue Mountains, Mayfield is one of the largest privately owned, cool-climate gardens in the world, extending across more than 160 acres. The immaculate guest house sleeps 10 and both ceremony and reception spaces cater for 20 – 250 guests.

Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens

Brisbane, QLD

Less than 20 minutes from Brisbane’s CBD is Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens – a tranquil, 4-acre property renowned for its abundant natural beauty. There’s an onsite marquee (seats 220) as well as a rustic reception room (seats 120) that’s surrounded by trees and a nearby creek. It’s a beautiful space that’s particularly pretty in spring when guests can comfortably mingle outside.

Old Broadwater Farm

South West, WA

Located on the doorstep of the Margaret River wine region, Old Broadwater Farm boasts a beautifully restored homestead surrounded by tall trees and lovely gardens that look particularly lush in Spring. There is also a magical outdoor courtyard area that’s perfect for post-ceremony canapés and dancing.

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel 

Sydney, NSW

Behold, a venue with a view. And a killer one at that. But it’s not just the harbour views that we adore – it’s the Hampton’s-style decor, the food and the fact that the staff here know what they’re doing. We particularly love this place during Spring when the sun is out and the champagne is flowing.

Little Church

Daylesford and The Macedon Ranges, VIC

This quaint, century-old weatherboard church is set on a private, two-acre property that’s conveniently located next door to a peony farm. During peony season (mid November to mid December) couples have access to these striking blooms at wholesale prices (plus you’ll be saving the planet by buying locally). If you have your heart set on a spring wedding, this romantic venue is hard to beat.

Stonebarn

South West, WA

Luxury and nature – here you get the best of both worlds. There’s views of the surrounding forest and nearby river and on-site accommodation to sleep 12 (with plenty of quality B&Bs nearby). There’s multiple ceremony and reception locations to choose from (The Dining Room, The Verandah, The Clearing or The Gazebo).

The Barn on Melross 

South Coast, NSW

Why is this Kangaroo Valley wedding venue so spring-worthy? There’s the small vineyard outside and the surrounding countryside with freshly sprung buds. And the massive celebration barn has equally massive glass windows that give a wonderful inside-outside feel and allow you to soak up the spring sunshine while staying cool and shady.

Royston House

Brisbane, QLD

A thoroughbred horse farm set on 500 acres, Royston House offers sweeping views, epic sunsets and accommodation for 12 guests. In spring, the weather lends itself to a festival-style celebration – think open tipis, food trucks and a dance floor beneath the stars. They only hold one wedding per week too, so the property is yours for the entire weekend.
