Long stretches of pristine beaches to incredible old growth forests, from fascinating historic buildings to the best whisky and gin distilleries in the world - Tasmania has fast become a go-to for unique, gorgeous and memorable weddings.
Here are 10 things that make Tasmanian weddings the best:
Amazing views and locations at incredibly affordable prices
Being that little island down the bottom of the ‘Mainland’ that gets missed off the Shapes packet and the Commonwealth Games Swim Teams outfits certainly has some benefits! Down, Down Under (oh yes, I went there) the secret of our little Tassie and all it’s delights is still closely guarded, which means the vast pool of vendors and venues are kept at very affordable prices. Throw into the bargain that you can be married in some of the most beautiful places in the world, and it’s not a bad idea!
Short travel times
Have you ever heard the idea that you can travel around Tasmania and see it all in a week?
Yeah, that’s not going to happen. But, there’s no denying that our little island is a pocket rocket of a state! Driving from one side of the state to another will take about 5 hours at most, so if you’re getting your hair and makeup done in Hobart before driving over to Tarraleah to get married, you won’t have a hair out of place by the time you arrive!
A slew of world class vendors
This isn’t our first Rodeo.
The wedding industry in Tasmania has been kicking butts and taking names for decades and hosts some of the most incredible Photographers, Videographers, Celebrants, Makeup and Hair Artists, Florists, and Musicians (just to name a few) around.
Incredible food and booze
If there is one thing Tasmania has become known for around the world, it’s the high quality, ethical and delicious produce, and the huge selection of boutique breweries, distilleries, and wineries on offer.
Want to sip on some small batch gin, while savouring some saffron drizzled pork belly as you smilingly gaze out at your dancing guests - we can do that.
Dog friendly venues
More and more couples are opting to have the furriest members of their family present on their big day - and I’m not talking about Grandpa!
And as so many Tassie venues and locations are dog and pet friendly, that means Mr Pibbles can walk down the aisle, stand proudly - or sleep soundly - as you exchange your vows and even bring you your wedding rings.
The big day is done and boy, was that a blast!
Now it’s time to say goodbye to Aunty Ruth and your brood of rowdy cousins who flew in from SA, ditch the parents, friends, and plus ones, and head off to enjoy a little one on one time with your new spouse. Coles Bay, Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur, Corinna - there is no shortage of honeymoon spots to choose from.
Being an island off an island, Tasmania has been incredibly lucky to continue on with life as normal - albeit with much more sanitiser. As we continue to touch wood/that lucky rabbits foot/that bottle of Purell, it means you can dance, celebrate, and enjoy the wedding of your dreams.
Eco friendly options everywhere
Other than incredible food and drink and insanely beautiful locations, Tasmania is home to many ethical, sustainable and eco-friendly practices and business.
Whether you are after eco-fetti to be tossed, ethically farmed meat and organic vegies, or want vendors who have the same mindset - this is the place to find it!
