Saying I Do In Australia - Australian wedding venue ideas
What could be a more romantic setting for your destination wedding than a place called Daydream Island? This gateway to the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef will make you feel miles away from home as you tie the knot with that special someone. Spend some quality time with your bridal party at the island’s signature Rejuvenation Spa, before walking down the aisle at one of the resort’s three ceremony locations. Exchange rings in an elegant chapel overlooking the Whitsunday passage, the secluded and romantic Lovers Cove, or the stunning Mermaids Beach.
In the market for something a little less isolated? Gold Coast isn’t nicknamed Surfer’s Paradise for nothing. Its fabulous beaches are popular with travelers of all ages, and a vibrant city full of lively nightlife just a stone’s throw away. With antique chandeliers, opulent furnishings, and richly decorated mosaics, Palazzo Versace practically oozes extravagance. You’ll have your choice of fine restaurants for the rehearsal dinner and luxurious suites for the honeymoon. Whether you want your ceremony to be traditional, contemporary, or barefoot on the beach, the hotel’s event staff will have you covered.
If a larger urban setting is more your speed, the Harbour City has beautiful beaches of its own, and Sydney has no shortage of entertainment to fill out your wedding weekend and bring your guests together. The heritage-listed Holiday Inn Old Sydney brings together the old-fashioned charm of cobblestone streets and the modern glamour of multi-story glass architecture. Take your wedding photos from the rooftop terrace and catch the stunning panoramic view of the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the background.
Perhaps you and your fiancé are more outdoorsy types? Consider blending your love of the great outdoors with the luxury you deserve on your wedding day by glamping in the Australian Outback. You can tie the knot with the ultimate symbol of Australia, Uluru, in the background at Longitude 131. This isn’t like any campsite you’ve been to before: each tent comes with a king-sized bed, daily turndown and laundry service, WiFI, and – best of all – a private view of the sunrise over Ayers Rock.
