Enjoy Beach Front Views
Beachside weddings are super popular in Australia due to our gorgeous coastline, and Western Australia is no exception.
The beach is also a popular location due to the panoramic views of the horizon that are stunning at any time of the day or night.
You can say your vows right on the shore with the golden sand between your toes and waves rising and falling beside you. Or if you prefer to protect your shoes, you can enjoy the scenery from a distance from up on a grassy hill or inside a function room with glass windows showcasing the view.

Enjoy The Vibes Of a Traditional Venue
Wedding chapels can also be incredibly picturesque, especially when dressed up with floral arrangements and decorations.
If you and your partner are religious or spiritual people then being married close to your God will be important to you. There is nowhere closer than in a church, chapel, or mosque.
Depending on your chosen venue and time of year, it may be a blank canvas that you can put your touch on, or have an array of set decorations for the season. Either way, it is sure to be a beautiful location to share your love.
As many religious venues service only the ceremony you will also be able to enjoy the best of both worlds by celebrating your reception at a separate venue.

Embrace The Australian Native Bushland
If you’re going to celebrate your big day in Australia then why not go the full monty and say ‘I do’ in the native bushland?

Both options are sure to be stunning and uniquely Australian.
