Free Wedding Day

Love will be in the air this spring at the Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia.

Local celebrants, together with the Wetlands, are offering couples the chance to tie the knot in the beautiful Outdoor Chapel… for free!

That’s right! There will be no charge for completing the required paperwork, no cost for the service, no cost for the venue and no cost to register the marriage at Births, Deaths and Marriages. All we ask is that the couple joins up as members at the Wetlands ($20 in total) and make a donation to the Wetlands (you choose the value!)
