A Newcastle WeddingNewcastle is a great destination for a wedding as it offers the bride and groom-to-be pretty much anything they desire.
As a city, Newcastle is both vibrant and charming and will make people from all walks of life satisfied, as there is just so much to offer. Whether you are a foodie, or if it is the arts or the beaches you are interested in, Newcastle has it. And as a wedding venue, Newcastle is all of that and more.
As it is a CBD it is a hub of transport options, so depending where your guests are from they can choose whether they want to stay and make a weekend of it, or if they want to travel home after the reception. However it should be noted that taxis are sometimes hard to come by as the night wears on, so it is a great idea to check with your venue in advance if they can organise or call a taxi for your guests.
Newcastle has some diverse offerings when it comes to weddings, which is why it can be such a great location for many couples. From lavish affairs in the heart of the CBD to the casual beaches nearby, you are sure to find what you are looking for here. Can't decide what you want? The beachfronts are just minutes away from the city centre, so you can even have a combination of beach/city wedding! Have your ceremony in one of the parks overlooking the water and then head into one of the venues located in the CBD for the reception.
There are also some great choices of reception venues right on the harbour foreshore which boast amazing water views and the romantic ambience that only the sparkling water seems able to create.
If churches aren't your style for the ceremony, you have a great selection of parks, beaches or the foreshore at your fingertips. Some venues also offer romantic gazebos surrounded by manicured lawns, a perfect option in case of rain.
More About NewcastleNewcastle is the second largest city within New South Wales, and is a short 2-3 hour trip from the largest city, Sydney. However with a growing population of only 140,000 people within Newcastle city, it still holds the friendliness and the charm of a much smaller township.
As Australia's second oldest city, Newcastle's heritage is still alive and rich in some of the houses, buildings and museums you can explore while organising the lead-up to your wedding day.
This industrial city is situated right on the water as it is a booming port, which gives it a perfect blend of city and surf culture, as well as a hub for the arts. In fact Newcastle has the highest number of artists per capita than anywhere else in Australia! Take some time out to explore the art galleries and museums to see what the local talent has to offer.
If art is not your thing, you can take a shopping trip for home decor or visit one of the up-market boutiques in The Junction. Once you have exhausted yourself from shopping, head down to one of the beaches nearby for some relaxation. There are 6 beaches within 5 minutes from the CBD!
With all of this on offer, Newcastle is an easy choice not only for the wedding but for all of the wedding shopping you will need to do as well.
It is a great city to spend at least a weekend exploring. In fact, it was recently ranked #9 on the Lonely Planet's Top 10 Cities for 2011! So treat yourself and your fiance to a weekend retreat so you can really get some planning done.
