6 quick tips for getting married in Tasmania

Now that we’ve got the venue out of the way, here are 6 other important considerations to make when getting married in Tasmania.

Scout the location

Visit your chosen wedding location a year prior to get a feel for the natural decor, such as flowers and foliage, and to gauge the typical weather conditions for that time of year.

Celebrate local cuisine

Tasmania is a food lover's paradise. Incorporating local flavours into your wedding menu not only delights the palate but also adds a unique touch to your celebration. From fresh seafood to locally sourced fruits and vegetables, the options are endless.

In summer, opt for a late afternoon ceremony

Tasmania experiences late sunsets in the summer. To avoid harsh and unflattering shadows in your photos and film, consider scheduling your ceremony for late afternoon. Make sure to check the sunset times for your specific location and date.

Plan for wet weather

Tasmania's weather can be unpredictable, so it's crucial to have a backup plan. Opt for a venue with a covered ceremony area or invest in a marquee. Keep umbrellas and dry towels on hand, and consider an indoor location for photo and film sessions.

Embrace the wild

Tasmania's diverse landscapes are part of its charm. Be prepared for any weather condition and embrace it as part of your unique wedding experience. Don't forget to wear sunscreen and stay hydrated.

Make eco-friendly choices

Help keep Tasmania beautiful by making eco-friendly choices for your wedding. Opt for eco-confetti, avoid balloons, and manage waste responsibly. Also, consider local accommodation options for guests to minimise the risk of roadkill.
