If Australia is famous for anything in particular, that would have to be its innovative, playful spirit, making it a perfect corner of the world for realizing your dreams, and magical weddings are no exception. From unusual locations, adventurous activities and original designs all the way to versatile themed weddings, there is little you can think of that Australia doesn’t already offer.
For those who would like to explore the most unusual, creative ways to get hitched, this list sums up some of the most beautiful and unique ways to commemorate your special day.
Could there be a more unique spot for an insanely romantic wedding than the one under the sea? With multiple wedding-friendly underwater spots, Australia can host a party below the surface of the ocean right on the Great Barrier Reef, with hundreds of exotic fish as your honoured guests, or in a less visited place, such as the Grenada.
Take your wedding plunge and start the lifelong journey with an exciting underwater ceremony either surrounded only with a studding array of curious marine life or with your closest family members. If you want to go all out, like the legendary Polish couple that hosted an underwater wedding for 303 guests, make sure you go through an extensive diving course, and don’t forget to have fun on your wedding day!
Hot-air balloon weddings
For a match made in heaven, you can organize an exhilarating ceremony in the sky with the help of a ballooning service. The epitome of romance, a sunrise wedding in the breathtaking scenery will be a perfect getaway and an intimate beginning of a blissful marriage.
If you’d like to celebrate the occasion with your friends and family after the unforgettable balloon flight, you can also book a venue to follow your sky wedding and turn it into a day-long party.
Tropical rainforest weddings
A true escape from the urban world of concrete, a rainforest retreat is an idyllic, serene choice for a nature-inspired wedding. A true Eden on earth, this piece of paradise will turn any wedding into a magical ceremony, even on rainy days when the gentle drizzle can make your day even more romantic if at all possible.
Surrounded by the song of exotic birds, the tranquil flow of the forest stream, and the caress of a warm, gentle breeze, you will be immersed into the moment and sure to remember every second of your captivating ceremony followed by an intimate celebration with your closest friends and relatives.
Whether you are fans of the Lord of the Rings, Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, Star Wars or any other legendary movie, you can create a unique wedding theme that will celebrate your mutual love for fiction and help you express your imagination to the fullest.
The increasingly popular old Hollywood theme for weddings in Australia will be perfect with a luxurious wedding car hire in Sydney, which will give your festivity a romantic edge, and a glamorous vibe that has brought fame to this movie era. Add a romantically decorated cake, a wedding gown and a suit to match, and your wedding will become an instant classic.
The northern section of the Kosciuszko National Park hides limestone caves that are simply perfect for a memorable wedding venue. For the following reception, you can book a heritage guesthouse which is suitable for a smaller number of guests, making this location one of the top choices for an intimate wedding celebration.
A cave wedding is meant for those who are eager for new experiences, and who truly enjoy being surrounded by pristine natural wonders, along with all the comfort and luxury of a lodge stay that will serve as a striking first step into a married life.
The Melbourne Gaol weddings
Placed in the very heart of Melbourne, this strange, somewhat spooky, but still remarkable venue is perfect for a unique wedding ceremony followed by a thrilling reception. Depending on your preferences, the Melbourne Gaol can arrange for professional actors to be your lurking police sergeants who will fingerprint and arrest all of your guests prior to entering the hall.
With the help of the right lighting and music, the venue instantly becomes a blend of retro high ceilings, long dining tables and antique-looking chairs, and a modern feast with proper, contemporary entertainment.
If you are looking for an original way to celebrate your love and step into a new stage of your life in an extraordinary manner, look no further than Australia, as this amazing continent is filled with opportunities that will help you turn your wedding day into a festivity of enchanting moments and unparalleled bliss.
