It is a brilliant choice for couples looking for a unique and romantic location in Australia to impress their guests. Whether you are looking for a remote beachfront location for an intimate ceremony or a luxury resort for a glamorous wedding, Broome offers plenty of possibilities for engaged couples and the atmosphere is just wonderfully relaxed.
Broome has a tropical climate with warm and dry winters and hot, humid summers. The best time for weddings is the dry period between May and September when the weather is still pleasant and warm, while the chances of rainfall are minimal. This makes Broome a perfect destination for autumn and winter weddings. Spring and summer are beautiful too with nature in full bloom and the wildlife looking absolutely stunning, but the sudden downpours are likely to ruin your idyllic outdoor ceremony, so definitely opt for an indoor ceremony and reception with the heavy rain as a most stunning backdrop. Remember the old adage: “a wet knot is harder to untie” suggesting that a marriage held in the rain, will be a long-lasting one. November is the hottest month of the year, while the monsoon season lasts from January to March and can bring cyclones and flooding.
If you decide to celebrate your wedding in Broome, we recommend that you organise a beach ceremony and tie the knot barefoot by the ocean – stunning! Famous Cable Beach is really magnificent with 22 km of the purest white sand, surrounded by beautiful tropical vegetation and red ochre cliffs, which create stunning photo backdrops for your wedding shoot. You can watch the sunset on the beach and take some amazing snaps before heading off to a romantic reception venue where you can have a sit-down style dinner under the stars. With plenty of party hire and catering options available, you can also organise a marquee wedding reception at the beachfront and enjoy breathtaking views and the ocean breeze.
We think you shouldn’t miss a camel ride along Cable Beach, which is a major tourist attraction and will definitely add unique interest to your wedding photographs. If your wedding is scheduled between March and October, you can even see Broome’s famous natural phenomenon called ‘Staircase to the Moon’ which appears on the sky when the full moon rises over Roebuck Bay at low tides.
Western Australia is a great destination for food and wine lovers. The range of its locally made products includes succulent seafood, black truffles and premium wines from the Margaret River region. From gourmet food at luxury beach resorts to delicious Asian fusion dishes in local restaurants, Broome offers a wide range of flavours to choose from. There are different influences including Japanese, Chinese, and Malaysian, but most wedding venues also offer a great choice of seafood dishes and traditional Australian food.
Broome is definitely worth staying at for a couple of days, so why not turn your wedding into a two-day weekend celebration and spend some time exploring the area! The city is best known for producing ocean pearls and you can visit a pearl farm and learn all about Broome’s history and its pearl industry. You can also enjoy dining and shopping in Chinatown or even organise a trip to Gantheaume Point six kilometres from Broome where you can see 130 million-year-old dinosaur footprints preserved in rocks and visible at a very low tide.
