The ceremony venue
Selecting the right venue begins with determining the level of formality and religious
references you want. The ceremony venue you choose will hold life-long significance for both of you.
To avoid disappointment, book the venue as early as possible, usually at the sat time as the reception venue, celebrant and photographers. Aim for at least 12 months in advance.
Look in yellow pages under reception venues, search on google or wedding websites with service suppliers and friends and families for recommendation. We can alway suggest some great venues that we have worked with in the past, also.
Every venue has own formalities and restrictions. Check what’s allowed and what’s not when investigating ceremony venues.
For example, A lot of places does not allow you to throw flower petals in Sydney. Some churches does not allow photographers to use flash or even take photos during the ceremony.
You also need to determine how far to get from ceremony venue is from the reception venue and whether it will be difficult for guests to get from one to other.
Many civil weddings hold the reception and ceremony at the same site for convinience and cost-cutting and getting married on Fridays seems to become more popular these days in Sydney.
