Inspired by oceanic colour palettes and sweeping views to the big blue, these venues are a perfect option for the beach-lovin’ couple who seek a seaside rendezvous.

The relaxed appeal of an oceanside venue enthuses a calm ambience that sets a chilled out vibe to your big day. And let’s not forget the photos; with the beachfront as your playground, the photo opportunities are endless. Where else can you capture dripping sunlight as the sunset sinks below the horizon, or the seawater sweeping across your feet? With the beach as your backdrop, your wedding snapshots are sure to be totally awe-inspiring.

In Australia, we’re spoilt for choice with a beautiful coastline and some of the world’s most picturesque beaches.

We’ve rounded up our faves from right across the country. Take a peek at our top picks below.
