What's the Best Wedding Location on Sydney's Northern Beaches?

If you are starting to plan your wedding, one of the major decisions you need to make is where to hold the ceremony and reception.

And this is where the expertise of a local marriage celebrant can come in handy.

Jan has won many awards for her services as she is injects the right amount of humour, warmth and grace into each wedding.

Imagine your special day in a secluded park or beach, with spectacular views overlooking the ocean. Located on Sydney's northern beaches, many of the weddings that Jan has performed have been in stunning locations, such as:

Clontarf Reserve

Shelly Beach

One of the most popular locations for weddings is Shelly Beach. It is located on a headland that faces west back towards Manly's ocean beach.

You can also choose to hold your wedding at the beautiful Rotunda. The Bathers Pavillion is the perfect choice for a reception as it has a great outdoor balcony.

Freshwater Beach

Your wedding can either be held right on the beach, at McKillop Park, which is situated on the headland between Freshwater and South Curl Curl Beaches and offers views up and down the coast or at Freshwater garden near Duke's statue. Your reception can then follow at Harbord Diggers or the stunning Pilu restaurant. No matter which Freshwater location you choose you are guaranteed unbelievable ocean views.
