We recently went to Tassie and put together a list of amazing spots for a wedding and elopement in Hobart.
Tasmania is one of the most desirable spots for destination weddings in Australia especially in 2022-2023. You will find here stunning, modern and historical venues and abandons of outdoor locations. Tasmania is so easy to fall in love with and the perfect choice for couples who are trying to get away. But even when the borders are open again, whether you are a local or visiting from the mainland, Tasmania will steal your heart forever.
Elopements or small intimate weddings are not just quick weddings. It’s another way to celebrate your love, more intimate way that allows you to express yourselves. It gives you so much freedom to plan your celebration and to get the best of locations, photoshoot time and much more.

Pumphouse Point, Lake St Clair
Lake St Clair is the deepest lake in the Southern Hemisphere: and Pumphouse Point might just be the most breathtaking hotel in the whole world. This 1930s pump point is now a design hotel.
Cloudy Bay Beach House, Bruny Island
Cloudy Bay Beach House’s architecture makes it a stunning venue on its own, but sitting pride of place within 85 acres of wild, rugged landscape, it’s something else entirely. Say I do in the glass-walled reception room, out on the beautiful decking, or over the private boardwalk to the beach, and celebrate under the stars.
