What better way to celebrate your once-in-a-lifetime moment than immersed in out-of-this-world beautiful scenery? Australia is home to many a wedding-perfect location to commemorate saying 'I do' and has grown in popularity in the past years.

While your romantic honeymoon plans always steal the spotlight when it comes to choosing the perfect destination, trends are now shifting towards creating an authentic wedding ceremony in the Land of Down Under, and marking the beginning of your commitment in style by venturing abroad.

Southern wineries

For lovers of delicacies and timeless tastes of love, the entire Australian South is interspersed with dream-like vineyards, and boutique hotels meant for an intimate ceremony. The Barossa region in the north alone will be more than enough to tease your palate with Shiraz-loved spots such as the Seppeltsfield Winery. Talk about a perfect toast with their chocolate-infused blend with black cherries and blueberries.

The colourful Whitsundays

Not only ideal for the dreamers who like venturing off the beaten track, the Whitsundays islands are mostly uninhabited, with an occasional lonesome resort just waiting for a barefoot crisp white wedding. Think veiled arbor in the mainland’s Airlie beach or some of the more hidden nooks, nestled in the embrace of the turquoise waves and the emerald forests of the shore.

Anchors down in Sydney Harbour

The iconic bridge offers more than enough inspiration for you to get hitched under its mighty arches, but the entire harbour is wedding-friendly. From the famous venue just above the Taronga Zoo, to dining areas overlooking both the bridge and the Opera House, your metropolis wedding can be luxury-laden from start to finish, with a high-end wedding car service for a smooth ride, all the way to the sunset-sprinkled first dance on a perched terrace.

In the heart of Down Under

Central Australia is home to one of the country’s main symbols, the unsurpassable Uluru, whose massive presence and beauty provide a wedding venue like no other. It’s the very heart of the continent with untamed wilderness cloaked in fiery rock reds and striking sky blues, and as such, a worthy spot to tie the knot.

Free-spirited Tasmania

Versatile, charming and slightly intimidating, the region of Tasmania offers quite a vivid selection of perfect places to say 'I do' with your future spouse. On one hand, you can opt for opulence amid wilderness in boutique resorts, or you can go more rustic in a national park, such as the Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge right on the shores of Dove Lake.
