Home to six national parks and a world heritage listed rain-forest, the Scenic Rim is an idyllic and diverse setting for your wedding with enough variety in locations and sights to cater for all. This region boasts uncountable hidden gems such as tropical waterfall backdrops like Curtis Falls or the sensational Tambourine Rain-forest Skywalk taking you to the highest point of the canopy to admire the surrounding flora and fauna. If the thought of heights seems a little daunting then the crystalline waters of Lake Moogerah provide a picturesque and tranquil setting which can take advantage of the endless sky set against the distant mountain ranges.
Wollongong Botanic Gardens provide you with that intimate natural backdrop so appropriate for your wedding photos. With unmatched floral beauty and charming landscapes you probably won’t want to leave.

If you’re looking for something with a timeless feel to it George’s Vintage Village has been created specifically for weddings and its rustic charm will transport you back in history. Notably this venue can be booked exclusively so you won’t be competing for those perfect uninterrupted photographic moments.
Looking for that barefoot beach wedding with a touch of opulence and sophistication or a wedding chapel overlooking a reef shaped like a heart, this island chain is renowned for being for one of the most sought after wedding destinations for good reason. Enjoy the white sands and your own private island as you give your wedding photographer the easiest possible canvas to work on. You could even get your feet wet and say your vows on board as you cruise past Whitehaven Beach on your exclusive boat basking in the blue landscape that The Whitsunday Islands are famous for.
Iconic, ancient and simply one of the most beautiful natural wonders in the world, Ayers Rock can create a spectacular backdrop to your wedding quite unlike any other.

Such a symbolic occasion as your wedding day deserves such a location and is a photographer’s dream guaranteeing you the spectacular images this special day demands.
If you are looking for a wedding location with class, elegance and sophistication probably the first place a Newcastle Wedding Photographer will recommend is the waterfront estate of Stanley Park. This heritage residence dates back to 1897 and is full of original features giving a real sense of history to the location. Unlike many heritage residences, Stanley Park is nestled inside 28 acres of lovingly maintained lawns and paddocks. Sitting on the waterfront, it provides an ideal wedding location in a rural setting just 5 minutes from the beach but still remains within easy access of the local amenities with Newcastle and Nelson’s Bay less than 30 minutes’ drive away.

It is definitely not difficult to imagine any bride’s dream wedding here.
