8th February, 2016: Nearly 19,000 brides and grooms say “I do” in Australia each year, but numbers are declining for the first time in 10 years, and whilst spring (November) and autumn (March) are the most popular times for weddings, it is no surprise that Saturdays dominate (56%) as the preferred day.
Sunday weddings rate second, 15%, with winter weddings least popular in June and July.*
Today, the average age is older - brides over 28, grooms around 30 but co-habitation before nuptials is still rising with 4 out of 5 couples “trying before buying.”
With nearly 326 weddings a day across the country, brides-to-be know the importance of booking and confirming their coveted venue well in advance for their special day. With 73% of weddings conducted by a civil celebrant, and only 27% in a traditional religious setting, it is not surprising venues are adding to and improving their facilities and bridal offerings in 2016.
Overlooking the lush green golf course and gardens, this purpose built open-air chapel or function area, is the idyllic location for precious wedding ceremonies, conference group sundowners or cocktail or launch events.
The open space allows up to 100 guests, cocktail style in this tranquil area, and with three sides open to nature, guests feel as if they are a part of the manicured gardens and koi ponds, with distant vistas across the golf course and Resort gardens. To launch the brand new Pavilion facility at the Novotel Vines Resort, they are offering a number of packages, incentives and special deals for romantics. They will even pay for your honeymoon in Bali.
