Destination weddings are here to stay, and let me tell you, the possibilities are endless. Tropical, beachside ceremonies might be the first thing that comes to mind, but don’t limit yourself. Have you ever thought about going further down under? Australia can make any wedding dream of yours come true. With such a vast landscape, including picturesque beaches, the rustic and minimalist outback, and vibrant urban settings, Australia is the perfect place for a destination wedding.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider having your wedding in Australia:
To be one with nature – The Red Centre.
The Red Centre and its encompassing cities are quintessentially the Australian Outback. Located in the heart of Australia’s Northern Territory, here you can truly experience all of the natural wonders Australia has to offer. Not only are your wedding pictures going to be breathtakingly unique, with the red sands creating a beautiful backdrop, but you’ll be able to experience the aboriginal culture and immerse yourself in the wild.
To not have to choose – Perth, Australia.
Can’t decide between a beach wedding, a small intimate ceremony in a park, or a modern venue? Well, you don’t have to decide in Perth. The small yet bustling city offers the best of all worlds. From gorgeous parks, like the Kings Park, to lavish hotels and miles of sandy beaches, you can’t go wrong when looking to Perth for all of your destination wedding needs.
