Following on from yesterdays post about beach weddings. The first thing you need is a venue! We’re so lucky in Australia to have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Here are some of my favourite beachside wedding venues, or weddings with a lovely coastal feel.

Jonah’s at Palm Beach, NSW

Located out of Sydney, Jonah’s is a stunning ‘all in one venue’. They provide accommodation, stunning options for your ceremony in their cliff top garden and plenty of room for your reception in its recently renovated rooms with a verandah and large windows overlooking the ocean. The food is gorgeous as they’re a fully functional restaurant outside of wedding bookings. If you so dare you can even arrive via seaplane. Jonah’s has a maximum capacity of 100 guests.

The Sebel Reef House at Palm Cove, Queensland



Palm Cove is such a beautiful spot, the beauty of having a wedding here means it gives your guests a mini holiday! The Sebel offers a variety of venues and a fully inclusive wedding package, leaving you free to concentrate on having a great time!

Cable Beach, Broome, Western Australia


Cable Beach in Broome is a stunning part of Australia. Mother Earth has blessed Broome with white sandy beaches, blue waters and red rocks making it a breathtaking location! A beach ceremony followed by a reception under the stars sounds completely romantic to me! The most amazing scenery also contributes to the most amazing photographs!

Four Mile Beach, Port Douglas, Queensland


Port Douglas is a popular tourist spot and with this beach as the premier beach of the area is it any wonder? Port Douglas has some amazing restaurants and things to do (including the beautiful Daintree Rainforest and just a hop skip and a jump to the Great Barrier Reef) which makes it great for a 4 day weekend celebration!

Of course with Australia’s massive coastline, this is only the tip of the iceberg of fantastic beachside wedding locations! What are your favourites?

I love a beach wedding. The smell of the salt, the ocean breeze billowing through Bali flags, the purest whites or fresh aquas and greens, the sand under your feet, the casual, relaxed feel to it all.
