If you have driven across the Harbour Bridge enough you would have seen two things; the “One Way Jesus” sign and a wedding on Observatory Hill. As a wedding spot, it’s iconic, and for good reason. It has an incredible view looking over the harbour as it stands eye to eye with the bridge. While at the same time displaying a mastery of soundproofing and somehow drowning out noise from the Freeway literally 50 metres away. It also has the advantage of being a short walk to a number of the oldest and most beautiful buildings, in The Rocks. Despite being owned by the city of Sydney, Observatory Hill is bookable and cheaper than you’d expect. And the flowers there are just beautiful!

Yes it has the sandy sand that runs right through your fingers, yes it has a view that seems a little bit photo-shopped, and yes it has a quaint park with the desirable balance of shade and sun. Balmoral checks every box you could want with 11 out of 10. Plus it has the added bonus of having a bookable pavilion in the middle of the beach that gives you a wedding melding so much of what makes Sydney truly special.
Whale beach is one of the more breathtakingly gorgeous beaches in the world, being the second to last beach on the Northern beaches. If you want to have a more authentic beach wedding, one that is reminiscent of an older time, a more innocent time, then Whale beach can provide with that setting. It still has the charming 70s vibes that so much of Sydney has lost (mainly due to it not being the 70s).
