It’s hard to find unique wedding venues that haven’t been used thousands of times. Because of the proximity to some of the world’s best wineries, many Perth couples tie the knot at their favorite winery or brewery. If not amongst the vineyards, the yacht club and other ocean-side venues are most popular. If you’re looking for something really unique and a little off beat, check out the Fremantle Prison! All ball and chain jokes aside, it’s an amazing venue that is sure to be the topic of conversation for many years and will provide unforgettable memories for you and your guests.
For 30 up to 400 guests, Fremantle Prison has been divided into several areas perfect for entertaining. From the main cell block to the underground Commissariat and prison chapels, the prison grounds have plenty of space for the ceremony, pre-dinner drinks and reception.

Forty-five minutes from Perth, Yanchep National Park is a gorgeous spot to say I do. Off the beaten track, the park is perfect for a unique wedding away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Not many people can say they were married underground in a cave!
