Oceania, a continent that encompasses Australia, New Zealand and the beautiful islands of the South Pacific, is a fantastic option for a destination wedding. Whilst the distance and flight time may put some people off, once you step off the plane you will quickly realise the journey was completely worth it. Australia and New Zealand both offer vast deserts, mountain ranges, cosmopolitan cities and amazing variations in terms of wildlife and sea life. The South Pacific islands on the other hand, are more beach-orientated, with miles upon miles of picture-perfect white sands and tranquil waters. The locals here are known as some of the most hospitable in the world and the slow pace of life will mesmerise you into a lull of complete contentment. Bliss!
You’ll be a long way from home if you choose to have your wedding in Australia or ‘Down Under’ as it is affectionately known. But the country’s beauty and extreme diversity that spans five time-zones make going the extra distance worth it. From the iconic Gold Coast and Great Barrier Reef to the Outback and its desert landscapes, weddings in Australia are unforgettable. Depending on your tastes, you can have a chic city wedding in cosmopolitan Sydney and Melbourne or a striking Whitsunday Islands beach wedding. With crystal clear surf and golden sands, Australia boasts some of the best beaches on the globe, making it the perfect country to have your wedding.
