So, you’re getting married? Congratulations! Now, where do you start? There are 101 things to remember and organise when planning the big event.
Before you even start picking out your dress, the first big decision is “Where shall we get married?”
There are so many reasons to choose here; the temperate weather and the photogenic natural backdrop to name just a few.
When choosing your scenery the options are endless, from lush tropical rainforests to pristine beaches, undulating hinterlands and majestic waterways; it really is the perfect place to say “I do”.
To complement your dream ceremony, the region has some of the most stunning wedding venues around. Along with high-quality restaurants and top-notch entertainment venues, it is no wonder the region has become one of the wedding destinations of choice on the east coast of Australia.
If you looking for a relaxed wedding, a small intimate occassion may be the way to go.
The good news is, The Big4 in Nambucca Heads comfortably hosts up to 80 guests.
Recent improvements to the highway make the journey here easier and the central location is also a big plus.
“Being half way between Sydney and Brisbane, means that often not just one family has to do all the big travelling,” says Sue Carter, park manager at The Big4.
They also offer accomodation for all budgets; you can even bring your own caravan.
“A big benefit is that accomodation, the reception and the ceremony are in one place,” says Sue. “So no one has to drive.”
If you love the idea of a beach wedding, but are concerned about your guests getting sandy and sunburnt, the Big4 has the perfect spot. It’s close to the beach but there’s plenty of shade and shelter from the wind.
The Destiny Motor Inn at Nambucca Heads is another great wedding venue complete with a beautiful private lake spanned by a charming little bridge.
A spectacular water fountain, water fowl and lush tropical gardens also help create the perfect wedding backdrop.
With Destiny’s service commitment and attention to detail gives you an impeccable location to entertain your wedding guests.
Another top spot to consider is The Nambucca Head Island Golf Club.
Here your wedding party can enjoy the stunning views looking out to the mouth of the beautiful Nambucca River.
They can host up to 150 people and the friendly and experienced team can assist with making your special day extra special.
