Wedding Venues 101 – Ceremony vs Reception

Before we unveil the cream of the crop among Noosa’s wedding venues, let’s briefly go over some wedding lingo. Understanding the distinction between ‘ceremony’ (typically outdoors) and ‘reception’ (usually at a restaurant) venues is key. Typically in Noosa you will need both as many of the venues are not big enough to hold both a ceremony and reception plus one of the best things about getting married in Noosa is having your ceremony on the beach! To make it easy for you, this list is divided into Ceremony venues and Reception venues so you can easily choose one of each. Ready to explore the best Noosa has to offer? Let’s dive in!

Noosa Wedding Venue – Ceremony Locations

#1: The Groves:

Undoubtedly the hottest spot for wedding ceremonies in Noosa, and for good reason. Located at the end of Hastings Street, The Groves is divided into four wedding bays – Hidden Grove, Casuarina Gardens, Maison la Plage, and Laguna Grove. Each bay boasts its own unique charm, beach views, and varying sizes. Maison la Plage and Hidden Grove, being the largest, are perfect for larger wedding parties of up to 120 guests.

Our Tip

Create a personalised welcome sign to avoid any ceremony mix-ups, especially on busier wedding days.

#2: Sound Park

Tucked right next to Rickys Restaurant, this intimate park with the river as your backdrop sets the stage for a perfect ceremony, followed by a reception at Rickys. It’s private, surrounded by trees, and conveniently close to Sofitel on Hastings Street.

Our Tip

Add some lawn games to keep guests entertained post-ceremony.

#3: Bridge Park

Nestled by the Noosa River next to the Noosa Waterfront Restaurant and the bridge to Chaplin Park, Bridge Park offers river views and a quieter atmosphere compared to Hastings Street. It’s ideal if you’re considering the Noosa Waterfront for your reception, and it’s just a short walk away from the Yacht Club, where you can board a Noosa Ferry to other wedding venues.

Our Tip

Make a grand entrance with a fancy car or a cool little combi van; it’s one of the few Noosa ceremony locations where you can drive right up to the wedding.

#4: Noosa Woods

Located on the Noosa River next to the Noosa Ferry wharf, affectionately known as the ‘Woods,’ this space provides a charming backdrop for ceremonies. While not as secluded as some of the Groves, it offers a larger area with multiple locations to choose from. Conveniently close to Hastings Street and less windy than the beach, it provides a lovely space to savour the ‘just married’ atmosphere. FCF Tip – Coordinate with your stylist to provide refreshments for guests post-ceremony.
