After getting married myself in New Zealand in an airbnb I have had a lot of requests from brides and grooms asking for recommendations for airbnbs in Perth that would allow them to have their own wedding in an airbnb. You're in luck! Here is our top picks that will cater to any wedding regardless of size, style and theme.

La Siesta On The Canal, South Yunderup
La Siesta is situated right on the canal in South Yunderup, with a spacious backyard overlooking the canal. It is a gorgeous, spacious home that is beautifully decorated (Hamptons style, no less) with features like a large outdoor area equipped with an outdoor pizza oven, paella burner, outdoor Jenga AND a granny flat for the bride (or groom!) the night before the special day. La Siesta is also walking distance to the inlet and a few minutes’ drive away from a boat ramp (plus, they also provide crab pots and fishing rods, but don’t tell the fiancé that!) and La Siesta can accommodate up to 12 people and is also pet friendly (ringbearer doggos anyone?).
La Siesta is perfect for a relaxed, intimate, long weekend wedding by the water with your nearest and dearest.

The Mansion, Applecross
The Mansion in Applecross is situated just two minutes’ walk away from the Swan River and is perfect for the big family for a big, but intimate day. Whether you have your ceremony overlooking the swan river or in the courtyard at the mansion, then cocktails and tapas or even a BBQ to celebrate, there is a lot of ways to turn this place into the perfect weekend wedding away.
Did we mention there is a guest house as well, to keep the kids (or the in laws?) at bay?
The entire property can accommodate 18 people all up comfortably with plenty of undercover parking for additional cars and a pool! The outdoor area is big enough to hold a marquee, a dance floor and an undercover band/DJ area as well.
Mel and Tony go above and beyond as hosts and can provide or arrange lots of extras to make your stay (and your day) unforgettable!

Lyfe at the Stix, Lower Chittering
Lyfe at this stix is perfect for those who want a boho wedding with their own unique twist. Nestled in Lower Chittering; just 45 minutes from Perth CBD, this place is nothing short of pure quirky magic. The property is set up with a yurt, a glamping tent and two tipis and areas including themed gardens, star gazing dome, outdoor games area (no need to hire, it’s already there!), incredible art installations as well as very friendly farm animals.
Jayne and Eric, the onsite hosts can also offer onsite world class catering (40 for canapes and 20 for a sit-down buffet style meal), so no need to hire outside help on the day.
Lyfe at the Stix is an adult only retreat, so no kids allowed. I highly recommend extending your stay to fully enjoy what is on offer in and around the property, including meditating, bushwalks or dinner at a nearby winery.
People say "it's impossible to describe The Stix unless you have been here” and they are right. Words cannot describe just how beautiful the property is until you see it for yourself.
Character Home in Burswood, Burswood
This stunning home in Burswood is the perfect hidden gem for a cocktail-style wedding! This beautifully restored, open plan home is just a few stones throw away from the casino and Victoria Park strip and if you are wanting an intimate affair this is the place for you! This character home features a stunning garden (to say your I do’s!) with a luscious lawn and outdoor entertaining area for tapas, as well as a 4th bedroom which can also be used as a rumpus room to hide the kids away while the adults celebrate in style!
The property has been lovingly restored so that the original ornate features such as decorative fireplace, original Western Australian Jarrah polished floorboards, ceiling roses and hallway arches throughout the house are highlighted yet contrasts well with the modern conveniences such as the fully ducted heating and cooling air-conditioning and brand new stainless steel appliances.
Nancy and Ben are great hosts and go above for each guest. Please note, due to the location of the home, you will need to confirm the number of guests and number of cars for the duration of the stay to align with council approval and to ensure that Nancy and Ben can comfortably accommodate your needs before booking.

Poplars Farmstay, Belhus (Swan Valley)
Poplars is definitely the hidden gem nestled in the Swan Valley. Whether you use this for on the day set up (Poplars is just down the road from most popular wedding venues) or for an intimate wedding (a maximum of 30 guests is permitted), you’ll fall in love with the place and the serenity! Poplars is 10 acres filled with fruit trees, olive groves and even a vineyard - they have been growing wine grapes for over 25 years.
The property itself has ample space for 6 guests with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There’s a private pool for those warm summer days and a beautiful large decking & patio area to watch the sunset (with a glass of wine in hand!).
The farmstay is home to pet sheep, alpacas and a donkey. Kangaroos and emus are often seen on the property and you'll also enjoy visits from birds, in particular the cheeky kookaburras saying hello during your stay.
Poplars is perfect for small, quiet and intimate gatherings - the smaller, the better! Please get in contact with Poplars to discuss your needs (including total number of guests attending/staying) before booking your wedding.
Tree Elle Retreat, Denmark
(Ok, I know this isn't in Perth but it has to be on the list - I mean look at how amazing this place is!)
Honestly, this place is simply AMAZING. If I had a do over (or if I could convince my now-husband to have a vow renewal), it would be here. Nestled just off the south coast highway between Denmark and Walpole (and just down the road to wineries for the in laws to get to know each other over) this place ticks all the boxes. Over 5 acres of stunning landscaped gardens gives you plenty of spots to choose from to say “I do” at - from beautifully manicured archways, to a the wisteria trees with plenty of photo opportunity spots and enough room if you need to host a marquee for cocktail hour and a FIRE PIT to get cosy with your nearest and dearest over a whiskey or two.
Tree Elle retreat has enough space to hold 250 guests exclusively, as well as accommodation for up to 26 guests (plus including the beautiful couple!) in four separate luxury homes.
- No noise curfew or cut off time so you can dance the night away with loved ones
- BYO – NO corkage charge
- Plenty of parking
- Clear access for buses and coaches, including pick up/drop off turn circle
