There are dozens of beautiful and romantic wedding destinations from around the world to choose from if you are planning to escape the unreliable weather of your home country and without a doubt Australia is one of the most popular of them all.
The reasons why Australia is such a popular choice are many; however here are some of the most common. Australia has a modern and high standard infrastructure, exciting cities for shopping, entertainment, restaurants and five star hotels. For beach lovers the fabulous Gold Cost offers mile after mile of golden sands and pristine ocean. The idyllic Hamilton Islands provide the perfect setting for those looking for seclusion.
Another unique reason for getting married in Australia is that everyone speaks English and all arrangements and legal documents such as marriage certificates are in your own language. Also most countries around the world recognize marriages in Australia as legal and binding.
Once you have decided to get married in Australia and have made your arrangements its also the ideal destination to combine both your marriage and your honey moon. With romantic hotels and resorts to choose from you can also have fun deciding on which kind of honey moon to go as Australia has it all from adventure to beaches and ocean.
There are several professional companies in Australia who can act on your behalf as wedding planners or organizers. This can help take a lot of your mind and let you enjoy your special day together with friends and family. Wedding planners meet with you beforehand to discuss how you would like everything organized to the finest detail like church or registrar, reception, transport, flowers, dress and honeymoon, including any other personal touches you may require on the day.
Australia is one of the top destinations for destination weddings and once all your personal arrangements for the big day have been finalized then the next most important step is actually getting there. Depending where you live in the world, Australia is very far away especially if you are travelling from the UK or elsewhere in Europe and transportation costs are a main expense when preparing your budget.
The only feasible and convenient way of reaching Australia is of course by plane. A flight from London to the western or northern regions of Australia generally takes around 22 to 24 hours and includes one or more stop offs on the way. Depending on where in the country you have planned your wedding for there will most likely be the need for another internal flight and or travel by either road or train. Of course the best way to look on all the travelling is to include and enjoy it as part of the overall experience.
