A list of the top five locations in Australia and New Zealand was compiled as the destination wedding trend continues to increase, according to Wyndham Hotel Group.
Wyndham ranked the following locales:
1. Margaret River
“The Margaret River wine region provides a breathtaking setting for a dream destination wedding. With stunning wineries, pristine beaches, verdant forests and superb local produce, the region has everything needed to create a truly memorable event.”
2. Sunshine Coast
“With laidback towns, beautiful beaches and a sub-tropical climate year-round, the Sunshine Coast will leave couples and their guests feeling relaxed and refreshed.”
“The urban wedding trend is on the rise in Australia’s capital cities and bustling Brisbane – named Australia’s hippest city by Lonely Planet in 2014 – offers the betrothed everything they could want and more. From hip hotels to a thriving arts scene, the city is a playground for creative couples looking for something a bit different.”
4. Port Douglas
“For a truly tropical wedding, Port Douglas offers couples a seductive setting, balmy climate and spectacular natural attractions. It is the only place in the world where two World Heritage listed attractions exist – the Great Barrier Reef and the rainforest of Daintree and Cape Tribulation. A feast for the senses, this tantalising tropical destination makes for an exotic wedding escape.”
5. Wanaka, New Zealand
“Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island is the perfect wilderness escape, offering excellent opportunities for stunning wedding snapshots against the backdrop of the Southern Alps and Lake Wanaka. Come winter, the mountains are decorated with a layer of sparkling white snow and in summer they shine under the golden sunlight.”
