Picturesque outdoor Winter Wedding locations in Noosa
Noosa is one of very few locations where every way you turn makes you feel as if you’re in paradise. Dotted throughout the entire vicinity are a vast array of beaches, canals and other waterways combined with mass amounts of jaw-dropping bushland and seemingly untouched natural garden areas.
With the many outdoor wedding locations to choose from you don’t have to worry too much about sharing your location either. Reduced tourist numbers as well as permit regulations ensure a hassle free tying of the knot. Whilst celebrating during the driest months of the year (May, June, July and August) means your wet weather contingency plan is most likely to remain just that.
The perfect winter wedding location is Noosa include: Little Cove Beach, Noosa Botanic Gardens, Noosa Woods Park, one the many main beach groves.

What to wear to a Noosa Winter Wedding
Generally clear skies, mild days and cool evenings create a happy medium for men in their suits and ladies in their stylish dresses.
The Bride & Bridesmaids
A bride’s wedding gown is usually constructed of many layers of fabric. Noosa’s mild winters therefore allow for the bride to feel comfortable in her gown without getting too hot, all while still being able to show off her shoulders, back and/or chest without fear of freezing. The same goes for bridesmaids and the additional make-up that gets layered on for those perfect wedding photos.
As you progress into the evening, a light bolero, pashmina, or jacket is usually enough to keep everyone feeling toasty. As all venues have heating and with all that dancing, you may not even bother donning a cover-over.
It’s not uncommon to see even locals sporting stylish knee-length outfits, combined with longer sleeves or a simple light cardigan. Alternatively, maxi-dresses with their swathes of fabric are also very popular, with guests only donning a shoulder cover for when the sun sets.
It’s important to remember that even during Winter, when in the sun, it can feel quite warm in Noosa. It’s only when the breeze picks up and one is out-of-the-sun that you really feel the cool.
Men love getting married and attending weddings during Winter. Because let’s face it, a 3-piece suit during Summer is stifling! Again though, if you’re out in the sunshine, you may even find some of your male guests forgoing the jacket, just keeping it on hand for the evening.
