2. Wilson Island, Australia

With just six luxurious tents on a tiny tropical coral cay within the Great Barrier Reef, this is arguably the most romantic campsite on Earth; a perfectly natural solution if you’re wondering where to get married.

Each tent is positioned moments from glistening white sands and pristine blue seas containing a plethora of colorful underwater wildlife. The emphasis is on simple indulgence – lounging in hammocks, snorkeling and indulging with gourmet picnics on the beach.

Nature provides a honeymoon cabaret in the endangered green and loggerhead turtles which come ashore to give birth between December and April.

The Wilson Island wedding package incorporates minister’s fee, bouquet and buttonhole, wine, wedding cake, accommodation and transfers.

Around US$3,350

4. Half Moon, Jamaica

Stop asking where to get married -- head to Jamaica instead. The Half Moon resort in Montego Bay is the place to bring 30 or more of your nearest and dearest for an overnight wedding bonanza that includes a morning-after brunch.

Nestled on 400 acres with a three-kilometer, white sand beach, the resort will marry the happy couple beneath a centuries-old waterwheel, beside a natural waterfall, in tropical gardens, on the beach or beside the pool of a private villa.

Prior to the wedding couples can entertain their guests with a welcome reception. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are laid on, followed by a four-course sit down dinner, wedding cake and Champagne -- plus a generous five hours’ worth of open bar.

US$475 per person for the wedding (based on 30 minimum), plus US$269 per double room
