My Wedding - - CONTENTS -

1. Mem­o­ries at the Eiffel Tower, Paris

Share a kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower in one the world’s most ro­man­tic cities, like Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. This fa­mous land­mark of­fers in­cred­i­ble views by day or night, mak­ing it truly an ideal spot to cap­ture the mo­ment.

2. Pic­nic in Cen­tral Park, New York

Pack a gourmet pic­nic lunch and take a stroll through Cen­tral Park with your part­ner. Pick a quiet spot to pop the big ques­tion, or if you’d like to cre­ate a scene from a movie, drop down on one knee at the fa­mous Bethesda Foun­tain. The foun­tain is one of the largest foun­tains in New York and has ap­peared in more movies than any other mon­u­ment in the park.

3. Ro­mance in a gon­dola, Venice

Ser­e­nade your part­ner with sweet love songs in a tra­di­tional gon­dola along the canals in Venice. Italy has a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing ro­man­tic and noth­ing sets the scene bet­ter than a back­drop of grand ar­chi­tec­ture, aro­mas of Ital­ian cui­sine and melodies sung by real Ital­ians.

4. On the beach or in the air, The Whit­sun­days

For ul­ti­mate pri­vacy, es­cape to Whit­sun­day Is­land and walk hand-in-hand along the in­cred­i­bly se­cluded stretch of sand at White­haven Beach. At the north­ern end of the beach there is a cove, where the tide shifts the sand to cre­ate a fu­sion of colours. Or book a sea­plane flight over Heart Reef, a heart shaped is­land in the mid­dle of the ocean.

5. Sail­ing in a yacht, Greek Is­lands

Pack a chilled bot­tle of cham­pagne and sail around the Greek Is­lands aboard a yacht. You can or­gan­ise a pri­vate skip­per to nav­i­gate a path, while you and your love­bird en­joy qual­ity time to­gether on the wa­ter un­der the sun.

6. Sun­set in an African game re­serve, Tan­za­nia

Fol­low the lead of Prince Wil­liam by ask­ing your princess to marry you at an African lodge. Ad­ven­tur­ous types can take their pro­posal one step fur­ther and or­gan­ise a game sa­fari through the plains to spot the big five in the wild and en­joy the seren­ity of na­ture.

7. Sun­rise at the Pyra­mids of Giza, Cairo

Wake up early and take your part­ner to a van­tage point to see the sun rise over the Pyra­mids of Giza. The pyra­mids are fa­mous for be­ing one of the orig­i­nal Seven Won­ders of the World and the most vis­ited tourist at­trac­tion in Cairo. Egypt has sun all year round, but the best time to visit is from Oc­to­ber to May.

8. In a coloured reef, Fiji

Plunge into the azure wa­ters off the coast of Fiji on a deep sea div­ing or snorkelling ad­ven­ture with your loved one, and then sur­prise them with a lovely ring when you rise to the sur­face. The coloured coral and reef fish make a beau­ti­ful back­drop for a pro­posal.

9. He­li­copter flight over Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier, New Zealand

Dis­cover glacier coun­try from above in a he­li­copter flight, where you’ll en­joy stun­ning views of sur­round­ing farms and NZ’s high­est peaks, in­clud­ing Mt Cook and Mt Tas­man. Or, for a grounded ex­pe­ri­ence, en­joy a guided glacier walk on Fox or Franz Josef Glacier.

10. Har­bour and city views, Syd­ney

Climb to the top of the Syd­ney Har­bour Bridge, en­joy a can­dlelit din­ner at Cir­cu­lar Quay or go for a stroll at Dar­ling Har­bour. The vi­brant city of Syd­ney of­fers plenty of ro­man­tic op­tions and great views of our very own Aussie land­marks.
