Why you should have your wedding in the Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley offers some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Australia. It’s no wonder that this wine country is renowned for being a very popular wedding destination for couples throughout Australia.

So, if you are in the process of planning your upcoming nuptials, here are several reasons why should consider the Hunter Valley as your wedding location.

Incredible scenery

One of the big selling points of the Hunter Valley is the surreal and aesthetically perfect scenery. If you want to get away from the city and suburban life for your wedding, then the lush, green hills of the Hunter are your perfect bet.

You can get married in the Hunter Valley Gardens or even amongst the vineyards, if you particularly like your wine. Imagine sitting back after the wedding ceremony and watching the sunset fall over the horizon. The perfect ending to a perfect day. No wonder the Hunter Valley is one of Australia’s popular wedding destinations!

Amazing wineries

Likewise, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a wine-lover, then the Hunter Valley is the place to be. There are simply so many classy and premium wineries throughout the region.

Chardonnay production during the 1990s was a massive part of Australia’s wine boom in that period and continues to flourish because of China’s demand for wine exports.  So, consider a few wine tours in the days after your wedding ceremony so you can really live up the amazing Hunter Valley wine scene.

Restaurants galore

The great thing about having your wedding in the Hunter Valley is you won’t have to elope or travel for your honeymoon. Why? Because everything you would ever want or need during your honeymoon is already there.

Namely, there are so many great restaurants and exotic delis that will fulfil the desires of all foodies out there. It doesn’t matter how specific your cuisine preferences may be, since the Hunter Valley and Pokolbin area is full of diverse restaurants and cuisines. Italian, Mediterranean, modern Australian, modern European – the list goes on!
