Port Macquarie, NSW

Tacking Bay Beach / Tacking Point Headland

Our Port Macquarie ceremony location is a sandy beach nestled into a rocky headland.  You can choose to say I Do on the sand or the grass. The stunning headland is home to an adorable lighthouse (she looks great in photos), and the beach has that perfect flour-like white sand that really says ‘paradise’.

Port Macquarie is perfect for couples wanting to have a relaxed ceremony, without too much fuss or drama or associated expense. Its stunningly beautiful here- but it’s almost as if nobody else has noticed. Perfect for two people wanting an intimate elopement.

Location highlights: The best thing about this location is the option to choose a stunning headland with 180-degree water views and a charming 1870s lighthouse or, get right down on the sand and get married on the beach. Both are beautiful, so it’s a hard choice. From the headland you might even spot a passing whale. On the beach the solitude and serenity, clear water and pristine sand will make your heart sing.

Local features: Port Macquarie isn’t as overrun by tourists as other destination wedding locations can be. You will feel like the only two love birds on the face of the earth.  Find a romantic BnB or a luxury resort and celebrate here for as long as you can.

Important things to note:  If you want to get married on the sand in summer try to choose a late afternoon, or maybe even a very early ceremony time. Or choose the headland option, where you can find some shade.

Other locations to consider:  Be sure to check out our other locations before picking your favorite. We have a lot of options on the NSW and QLD coastline. The hardest thing will be choosing.
