There are world famous beaches like Bondi and Manly, the Harbour with it's sailing yachts and glistening waters, the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge, classic old-world style of the Rocks area and much much more. So don't be boring with your wedding photos, get creative and find some stunning photo locations around Sydney!

We detail below a number of locations great for an wedding photos.




Sydney Opera House

Sydney City

Google maps

The Sydney Opera House is an icon of Sydney and can make for a great backdrop for your wedding photos. The Opera House steps are lovely, but this area can be busy on weekends. Generally people will move away from an area if you ask nicely. Get up close for some interesting shots with the Opera House, and use it as a feature in the back ground for photos from around the Rocks area.

Hyde Park

Sydney CBD

Google maps

Hyde Park is a favoured spot for wedding photos and deservedly so. The main fountain is a unqiue feature and looks wonderful at night. You get some great shots if you can use the long avenue with the trees making a lovely frame - just try and avoid the crowds! Close to Martin Place for another great wedding photo location.

Anzac Bridge


Google maps

Anzac Bridge is a distinctive backdrop for wedding photos in Sydney. The long wires form great vertical converging lines that look brilliant in photos both colour and black and white. The end furtherest from the city is the best location as you can look back towards Sydney CBD and have all the skycrapers and lights at night of the city. Another option for those with a convertible wedding car is some shots driving over the bridge itself!

Macquarie Lighthouse

Watson's Bay / Woollahra

Google maps

Macquarie Lighthouse which marks the site of Australia's earliest and longest continually operated light station. The lighthouse forms an impressive back drop to your wedding photos, distinctive and beautiful on a blue sky day. It's a great spot with Watson's Bay and Neilsen Park also close by for photos.

McKell Park


Google maps

McKell Park is small and private park tucked away at the end of Darling Point road between Rushcutters and Double Bay. It has a quiet aspect but a wonderful position right on the Harbour, and access is easy for boats or yatchs to wisk you away following a ceremony. Most people have their wedding ceremony down the end of the park near a circular area. Not a huge range of photo locations within the park itself, but hop on a boat or water taxi and you have the whole of Sydney Harbour to choose from. Check with local council to book and gain wedding permission.

Neilsen Park


Google maps

Neilsen Park is a popular place for relaxing and getting back to nature, so if you can beat the crowds it makes a fantastic wedding photo location. The long avenue from the main gate (see opposite photo) has interesting lines, the beach is small but can be used when crowds are low, and there are a couple of out crops to take some shots looking over Sydney Harbour.

Manly Beach

Manly, Northern Beaches

Google maps

Manly Beach is an good location for wedding photos, but it can often be crowded, especially over summer, so pick your spot well!

Dawes Point Park

The Rocks

Google maps

Dawes Point Park is right at the end of the Rocks, underneath the Harbour Bridge and so it has a number of views towards the Opera House, Luna Park, and the Harbour. Quite a popular place for shots looking up the Harbour Bridge, but is usually very shady in the afternoon.

Observatory Hill

The Rocks

Google maps

The outlook from Observatory Hill is wonderful, but there are plenty of other shots to be had in this area of the Rocks. The stone and trees of the park can be used for some great wedding photos, and there are often a few less people around.

Shelley Beach

Manly, Northern Beaches

Google maps

Shelley Beach is a private and sheltered beach away from the bustle of Manly's main beach. It's a very popular place for an outdoor wedding, with most held under the palm trees on the far side of Shelley Beach. The best (and closest!) place for your reception is Le Kiosk, right on the walk way although there isnt great space for a large wedding. Great locations nearby are Shelley Headland, the rocks above the car park, Shelley Beach itself, and the walk way back to Manly.

Federal Park


Google maps

Federal Park is a stones throw from Sydney CBD and can be a good photo location to do a breif stop over on the way to the city or Rocks area. The city skyline is impressive and the tall towers of the Anzac Bridge makes for a great photo back drop.
