To continue our regular series on the best wedding venues all over Australia, we are stopping this week in Hobart. This island city is known for its combination of historic districts like Battery Point and natural wonders like Mount Wellington. With its combination of old-and-new, natural-and-architectural, Hobart is guaranteed to have a wedding venue for you, no matter what style you’re looking for. Here are our top three picks for where to get married in Hobart.
For the traditional bride who is looking for a church wedding and a reception venue steeped in Hobart history, there is no better choice than the St. David’s Cathedral and Hadley Orient Hotel. These two historic locations are located directly opposite each other, making your transition from one venue to another a piece of cake. Both buildings date back to the 19th century, making them the perfect choice for a romantic and traditional wedding day steeped in local history.
For a bride who wants to take advantage of Hobart’s island location and sweeping waterside vistas, consider the Cornelian Bay Boat House, located just five minutes from the city centre. This quiet seaside location puts your wedding right on the beach, while still offering the convenience of an urban centre. The wedding packages at Cornelian Bay Boat House are fully customizable, allowing you to tailor your event down to the fine details.
For the down-to-earth casual bride who is still looking to incorporate some of Hobart’s local culture into her wedding day, consider Cascade Brewery. This location is a blend of history and contemporary culture. Build around 1824, Cascade is part of Australia’s oldest brewery, but it also boasts a modern reception venue and cultivated gardens for your ceremony. Cascade Brewery allows couples to incorporate the area’s culinary culture into their event with local produce and fresh Tasmanian beers and wines on the menu.
