2. Wilson Island, Australia
With just six luxurious tents on a tiny tropical coral cay within the Great Barrier Reef, this is arguably the most romantic campsite on Earth; a perfectly natural solution if you’re wondering where to get married.
Each tent is positioned moments from glistening white sands and pristine blue seas containing a plethora of colorful underwater wildlife. The emphasis is on simple indulgence – lounging in hammocks, snorkeling and indulging with gourmet picnics on the beach.
Nature provides a honeymoon cabaret in the endangered green and loggerhead turtles which come ashore to give birth between December and April.
The Wilson Island wedding package incorporates minister’s fee, bouquet and buttonhole, wine, wedding cake, accommodation and transfers.
3. Tanjung Rhu, Malaysia
This luxury resort in Langkawi offers a traditional Malay ceremony complete with costumes. Weddings can be held at a choice of venues including the two-kilometer white sandy beach, or gardens overlooking the sea.
Everything is themed down to the flowers in the wedding arch, the music played during the ceremony, the romantic meal which follows the service and the Malay massage for bride and groom in the hotel spa. Malay not your style? No worries — the resort offers the whole package with a Chinese or Indian theme too.
4. Half Moon, Jamaica
Stop asking where to get married — head to Jamaica instead. The Half Moon resort in Montego Bay is the place to bring 30 or more of your nearest and dearest for an overnight wedding bonanza that includes a morning-after brunch.
Nestled on 1.6 square kilometers with a three-kilometer, white sand beach, the resort will marry the happy couple beneath a centuries-old waterwheel, beside a natural waterfall, in tropical gardens, on the beach or beside the pool of a private villa.
Prior to the wedding couples can entertain their guests with a welcome reception. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are laid on, followed by a four-course sit down dinner, wedding cake and Champagne — plus a generous five hours’ worth of open bar.
5. Rocky Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
Buddhist monks conduct the ceremony on a beautiful secluded private beach while Thai musicians play and a traditional Long Drum Parade plays its own part in the proceedings.
After a traditional water blessing, there’s a Thai dance celebration, buffet for 30 guests, cake, fire-jugglers and fireworks over the beach.
Flowers and bubbly await in the bridal suite of the resort, where the happy couple will have been treated to pre-wedding pampering.
6. La Maltese, Santorini, Greece

7. Palm Island, Grenadines
This 0.5 square kilometer private island is famous for the white sands of Casuarina Beach, skirting the entire west coast. The resort sleeps 40, most romantically in lofts that sit above the water on 1.5-meter stilts and have vaulted ceilings, huge verandas and hammocks.
The Palm Island Wedding Package includes ceremony, cake, bouquet, buttonhole and Champagne — and is totally free to bride and groom staying eight nights or more in the lofts or beachfront rooms, where there’s a choice of themed honeymoons, focusing on either spa and relaxation or action and adventure.
