Welcome to Bunbury if that’s where you’ve chosen to say and celebrate your wedding vows!
It’s a medium-sized city of about 70,000 people located on the southwest corner of Western Australia, a two-hour drive south of Perth. It sits on the coast, offering port facilities, and also provides access to railway travel via Wollaston for your out-of-town friends and relatives.
Maybe you’d prefer to set your wedding memories against the backdrop of the gardens in Anzac Park, right in downtown Bunbury. There are several other Council reserve areas also requiring advance booking, including the Pioneer Cemetery Park, the Centenary Gardens including the floating sphere, Guppy Park with its lush greenery, the Jetty Baths, the Marlston Hill Lookout, or Taylor Foreshore, with its waterways and the amazing flora and fauna you’ll find in the area.
Once you choose one of these city venues, it’s easy to move your guests from the ceremony to a place like Mojo’s or VAT Two.
Mojo’s boasts a best-restaurant shout-out from acclaimed food critic Rob Broadfield; your guests can dine on Nipponese cuisine prepared by the Japanese head chef.
VAT Two promises to afford your family and friends a classic old-fashioned experience, with dishes such as crumbed whiting in remoulade or quince and rocquet cheese tart.
Your wedding coordinator will guarantee a smooth day for you with the help of a wedding DJ, videographer and photographer, and a florist.
Another option right in Bunbury is the Quality Hotel Lord Forrest located right up against the ocean.
It’s a place offering a traditional culture, and up to 70 of your guests can be accommodated at an intimate reception or up to 300 people in the ballroom.
This place does it all, from your ceremony at poolside or at the beach; your guests can enjoy cocktails whilst you have your photographs done; and then dinner followed by dancing and socialising, and even a morning-after buffet if you’d like.
The hotel staff offer exquisite decoration options, and the menu might include anything from Thai beef salad to vegetarian pasta with roasted pumpkin to delectable fettuccine and many more options.

Bunbury Wine Country
Bunbury is far enough into wine country, however, so that you can plan your wedding away from the hustle and bustle of city life and choose a place just amongst the green rolling hills where the grapes grow, close to a jarrah forest, or even on the edge of the water.
How about a cosy yet cosmopolitan place like the Sanctuary Golf Resort, just five kilometres north of Bunbury on Pelican Point?
It offers some of the most beautiful backdrops for your wedding day that you’ll find anywhere. This majestic place can accommodate small parties all the way up to 350 guests, cocktail style, and offers housing options for those who might need to stay the night.
Besides the rooms or suites that overlook either the pool or the greens, you’ll find the place well equipped with a dance floor, and you can hire in your own florist and wedding DJ to put magic into the evening.
Vittoria’s is the onsite restaurant that will put together menu options for you, whether you want to serve your guests BBQ, antipasto platters, or a full menu from appetizer to dessert.
