Kiama is host to our very own wedding trail, 'Kiama I Do'.
This exciting new concept will highlight Kiama as the perfect wedding destination showcasing all participating venues and their amazing setups. Each venue will have the area’s most creative and inspiring suppliers, displaying the essential ingredients required to make the day perfect.
Say "I do" to this magical, romantic setting ...
Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life – celebrating the entwining of two separate lives – joining together in love. Of course, before you say “I do” to that special someone, you first need to find a special somewhere.
Wedding venues have come a long way in recent decades.
In 2019, it could be anything from a traditional church service through to a barefoot beach ceremony, backyard celebration, barn dance or benchtops under a big oak tree. And the Kiama area can do it all.
More and more couples are looking for a day that reflects their unique tastes and personalities. Luckily for you, our small piece of paradise offers not just some of Australia’s most enchanting locations, but a wealth of local service providers with ample local knowledge to customise to your heart’s content.
From caterers to florists, hair and makeup experts, photographers, musicians, celebrants and more, you won’t need to bring an entourage with you – leaving more time to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds that this area has to offer. The annual “Kiama I Do” wedding expo held in the final weekend of April is a perfect place to pick your dream team, all under the one roof.
Many fall in love with this area due to magical childhood or holiday memories. But for others, it’s the promise of creating romantic new ones. Kiama is one those unique places that feels so far away from it all and yet is so easy to get to – essential when bringing together a scattered
collection of family and friends. Add in a range of venues from bush-clad mountains and rolling green hills through to the sparkling ocean, and the stage is set. All that’s needed is you.
Kiama wants to share your special day with you. Do you?
