Old Buildings and Areas in Sydney for Wedding Photos

Sydney has a wonderful number of old buildings for some great looking wedding photo locations. The heritage and history of Sydney's old areas and buildings can make your photos look timeless and classic, like a 1950's movie star or something from medieval Europe. Try the popular Rocks area and get lost in old alleyways, timeless pubs, and winding stone stair cases. Or hit Martin Place for some dramatic and beautiful old buildings, grand examples of an architecture long forgotten.

We detail below a number of old buildings and areas in Sydney for great wedding photo locations.




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.

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.

Greycliffe Lawns

Nielsen Park

Google maps

Greycliffe Lawns are next to Greycliffe House in Nielsen Park. They are a lovely private location for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Nielsen Park itself is a great place for wedding photos and the Nielsen Park kiosk is a wonderful reception venue. See here for more information regarding booking Greycliffe Lawns.
