When looking into the myriad wedding venues Melbourne can offer, don’t you sometimes wish you could just elope? Spare yourself the headache of a traditional wedding and simply run off for a quickie wedding in a country or city where no one knows who you are!
If that appeals to you, here are a few places where you can actually find that quickie wedding of your dreams:
New Zealand — New Zealand may be the last place you’d think to get married, but it’s a great place for a quickie wedding. There’s no need to show ID if you want to tie the knot, and you’re fairly close to Queenstown–considered the “Adventure Capital of the World”.
Gibraltar — This little country is home to the famous Rock of Gibraltar, and it’s also a great place for eloping lovers. It’s considered one of the easiest places in Europe to get married, as you only need to register with the registry office a single day in advance of the wedding.
Florida — Getting married in Florida is as easy as you could hope for, as there is no waiting period on the marriage license. Fly into Miami or Orlando, get hitched in a small ceremony, and spend your honeymoon dancing the nights away at Miami Beach or enjoying Disney World in Orlando!
St. Lucia — For destination weddings, the Caribbean islands are some of the best places in the world to get married. St. Lucia is one of the top quickie wedding destinations, as the legal requirements to get married on the island are minimal.
Denmark — Also known as the “Las Vegas of Europe”, Denmark is the place to go for an awesome European wedding. The procedure for applying for a marriage license is very simple, and you’ll be able to explore the city while you wait for it to come through. Bonus: Denmark is one of the few places in Europe where you can get married outdoors.
Cyprus — To get married in Cyprus, you only need to arrive in the country three days before the wedding in order to have enough time to fill out the minimal paperwork. The process is very simple, and you’ll find hundreds of AMAZING wedding venues to choose from.
Hawaii — For an island paradise wedding destination, it doesn’t get much better than Hawaii. You’ll need some form of ID and an appointment with a marriage license agent (thankfully, you can make this appointment online), but the rest is simple. Plus, you’re in HAWAII! With hundreds of beautiful beaches as your wedding venue, there’s no end to gorgeous sites to choose from.
For those who want to explore the more traditional of Melbourne wedding venues –complete with a ceremony and reception–Red Scooter is one of the best wedding venues Melbourne can offer. You’ll love the unique, exclusive feel of the venue, which is as customisable as you could ask for. It doesn’t get better than a Red Scooter wedding!
