If you dream of a fairytale winter wedding, then the Snowy Mountains are the final destination for your wedding in Australia.

The Snowies are also known as the “roof of Australia” and are characterized by their spectacular landscapes, their colorful vegetation, their vibrant wildlife and their picturesque ski slopes. It’s an idyllic winter wedding destination where the venues are inviting, the food is plentiful, and the views are simply mind-blowing. Escape to the snow and host your Snowy Mountain wedding at one of the picturesque locations of Jindabyne, Thredbo, Perisher, Charlotte Pass, Crackenback or Khancoban. The perfect way to celebrate? Adorn your long-sleeved wedding dress with a decadent faux fur stole and say “I do” on the slopes or inside a cozy function room with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the mountains.

Captivating winter landscapes create magical settings, so your wedding ceremony in the Snowies will be something special. Many of the locations have so many magnificent indoor and outdoor wedding ceremony spots that offer sublime views of the mountains. You can get married in the foothills of Australia’s highest peaks or climb to the top of the mountain on a chairlift. You can also make your vows on the banks of the Thredbo River, on the shores of Crackenback Lake, or inside Thredbo Chapel, which is nestled at the foot of Crackenback Mountain, or in a hotel located on the hill.
Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa
After your ceremony and celebratory cocktails, enjoy your lunch or dinner next to a spark of fire and soak up the inspiring views of the mountain ranges that are completely covered in snow during the winter months. Popular hotel locations include the Denman Hotel, located in the heart of picturesque Thredbo Village, which has unsurpassed views of the mountains from its elevated position in the hills, and the Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa, which has a unique combination of views of the lake and mountains.
Things to Do
Your Snowy Mountains wedding wouldn’t be complete without some action on the slopes, so save some time for skiing or snowboarding. Find accommodations near the ski slopes so your guests can more easily enjoy this winter fairy tale. There is nothing more romantic than staying in a warm and rustic chalet set high in the mountains. And at the end of the day, restore your energy at local restaurants and enjoy a delicious meal with a glass of red wine by an open fireplace. The region is known for its cool-weather wines, cheeses, truffles, Angus beef, home cooking, Italian pizza and pasta, and all kinds of great, hearty dishes that are perfect for winter.
