1. Step back in time at Brickendon Estate

Fancy getting married at a UNESCO World Heritage site? Established in 1824, Brickendon is blessed with historic buildings including a charming chapel for the ceremony, and secluded cottages to accommodate the bridal couple and their guests.

2. Love among the vines at Josef Chromy

Just beyond Launceston’s outskirts, Tamar Valley vineyard Josef Chromy hasn’t just mastered the art of wine-making. In addition to outstanding vino, starting with elegant sparkling, receptions at its award-winning restaurant also offer delicious dishes and views across the vines.

As for the ceremony itself, there are even better vistas from the garden’s romantic lakeside gazebo.

3. Pick your favourite national park

Did you know you can get married in Tasmania’s national parks? Whether you love getting out in nature together, or just want an epic setting, places like Cradle Mountain National Park are next level – especially when luxe Cradle Mountain Lodge awaits at the park’s edge for reception and accommodation.

Want to take things to the next level? Imagine getting married above the crystal-clear waters of Wineglass Bay, in Tassie’s iconic Freycinet National Park, then maybe hosting a reception at the ultra-luxe Freycinet Lodge or Saffire Freycinet… Ready to book?

4. Have a garden party at the Botanical Gardens

For natural beauty in the heart of the city, make a beeline for Hobart’s Royal Botanical Gardens. Choose from lovely landscapes like the Japanese garden – including a petite bridge across a pond with contented ducks – or heritage settings such as the gazebo or anniversary arch.

After the photos and ceremony, celebrate in the gardens’ restaurant with views across 14 spectacular hectares of flowers and trees.

Expect nothing but outstanding service and catering at this boutique hotel, restaurant and golf course near Launceston. Every detail is taken care of – right through to the happy couple’s departure a day or a week after their big day.

6. Take it to the waterfront

There are plenty of oysters on the menu at Barilla Bay oyster farm weddings. From canapés in the Pearl Room to the restaurant’s buffets and sit-down dinners, this venue is a top option for food-loving couples.

With views across the bay’s tranquil waters to Hobart’s Mount Wellington / kunanyi, plus a quiet beach, it’s also a feast for the eyes.

7. Feel a world away at Glen Albyn Estate

Also close to Hobart but a world away, the six-hectare Glen Albyn Estate is dedicated to events, especially weddings, so you can be sure everything will be just right. Take your pick of perfect places for the ceremony and reception, from the Riverview Deck overlooking the Derwent to the glass atrium, then let the experts take care of everything you don’t want to, from transport to flowers.

8. Old-fashioned romance at Corinda

The formal garden, Victorian architecture and abundance of antiques at Corinda make wedding dreams come true for lovers of period romance. You could even do a horse-drawn carriage ride to or from this grand 1870s Hobart house.

The Spanish co-owner/chef can bring Continental class to intimate receptions (or tee up bigger parties at a nearby venue), before you and your guests snuggle up in Corinda’s heritage accommodation.
