Conclusion

We love the Central Coast because of the mix of worlds on offer here.

From laidback boho beachside ceremonies to five-star dining and luxury accommodation options, it is a dream destination for your big day.

There are stunning contemporary venues as well as some quaint and refined historic spaces, and views of the ocean, bushlands, countryside,and mountains on offer, depending on whether you choose the coast or hinterland.

The weather is temperate, meaning that it never gets too hot or too cold. Even in the middle of summer, you will find a series of perfect 27-degree mild days just right for a wedding celebration.

It can get rainy in late summer and autumn, however, so the best months for the Central Coast are probably in spring.

Conveniently located whether your guests are coming from Sydney or Newcastle, it is a great spot for a weekend away.

A romantic and naturally beautiful location of friendly people, just waiting to host your big day.
