With miles of dramatic coastline, opulent historic buildings and activities galore to extend your pre or post-wedding festivities - not to mention a super convenient location just two hours north of Sydney - NEWcastle may just be New South Wales' best kept wedding secret.

As for where to say i-do, options range from heritage glamour to casual seaside venues, with a bit of everything in between.

Historic Fort Scratchley - with its phenomenal 360 degree views across the harbour and ocean beaches up to Nobby's headland - is the ultimate location for vintage and rustic weddings; while Newcastle City Hall will have every princess bride in raptures with its elegant Concert Hall accommodating up to 250. You'll certainly get your grand entrance here! If yours is a smaller gathering you'll still be able to enjoy the view from this iconic venue in the intimate Hunter Room.

Bride At Newcastle Museum

After a unique spot to tie the knot? New age enthusiasts and those keen to do something creative will love the Newcastle Museum where you'll find a reception room with a huge illuminated globe hanging from the ceiling of this authentic original building.

If you are a foodie, then you'll want to visit Reserve Wine Bar. With an award winning Wine List this is one of the city's best-loved places to wine and dine.  

Set within the walls of an old bank, it has a distinctive vibe. You can hire the venue for your wedding reception or head there with your wedding guests the night before ...or after your wedding for a pre or post wedding catch up.

Views From Merewether Surf House

If you're dreaming of an absolute waterfront location - whether you're inviting 30 or 230 - then check out the romantic private balconies, refreshing ocean breeze and (once again) glorious views at Merewether Surfhouse.

The Incredible Interior Collections At Rustica Newcastle

Once that knot has been tied, why not share all the juicy details from the day before with your nearest and dearest at Rustica Newcatle Beach - a Mediterranean hotspot with a dramatic interior featuring Spanish artworks and statues - it's just the spot for a post-wedding giggle (and gossip).

Wedding Reception Room At Novotel Newcastle Beach

For guest or wedding night accommodation there is plenty on offer, suited for all budgets. There is the Novotel Newcastle Beach, that's centrally located to the city of Newcastle, and is a hop skip and jump from the beach and walking distance to almost everything.

Prior to your honeymoon, squeeze in an hour to enjoy a couples massage (to relieve the stress you've been building up these past few months) at Royal Gala Day Spa, or set off for a Hunter Valley honeymoon in style with an indulgent helicopter flight straight to your vineyard accommodation! (yes some of the wineries have their own helicopter landing pads....imagine what else they'll have in store for you!)
