1. Let us entertain you
If you and your fiancé aren’t exactly into simple, quiet weddings and you’re more about living life big, a theme park wedding is a fabulously fun way to celebrate the occasion. Known for its thrilling attractions and unmistakable charm, Warner Bros. Movie World offers a range of venues that suit both intimate and grand weddings – superhero fans, check out their impressive Hall of Justice for a little shameless fandom! And we know what you’re thinking – yes, you can hire out (some) of the rides for the night!

If you’re more of an animal-loving couple, Sea World is where you can top the day off with a reception by the waters (and friendly residents) of Dolphin Beach, or even dine in the underwater Shark Bay aquarium – cue Little Mermaid vibes.

2. Love the rustic country theme?
So, you’re looking for a venue for a rustic country-themed wedding but you don’t want to venture too far out of the city. Located just 20 minutes north of Surfers Paradise, Paradise Country has the sort of getting-back-to-nature feel (with all the luxuries, of course) you and your guests will love, plus glamping, uber-cute animals and sprawling eucalyptus-dotted paddocks that lend themselves to sunset photos.

Or, if you’re wanting to make things really memorable, say “I do” at the nearby Australian Outback Spectacular and treat your guests to generous (yet sophisticated) country hospitality at its Summit Lodge – complete with enchanting fireplace and a private butler, naturally.

4. Stress-free planning
Wedding planning sounds super fun but there comes a point when you’ve got fifty tabs open, looking at wedding trends on Pinterest at 3am, trying to remember exactly what feel or style you wanted for your big day. Weddings at Village Roadshow’s theme parks are thankfully stress-free, with their dedicated wedding coordinators there to help bring everything together and take care of the finer details. Amen to that!

5. Complimentary accommodation
After the festivities of the day, travelling for what feels like ages to get to your hotel is the last thing you’ll want to do. For all weddings at Village Roadshow’s theme parks, brides and grooms can enjoy complimentary wedding night accommodation at the award-winning Sea World Resort, located just a short distance from all VR parks.
