Where nature comes first
Wildman Wilderness Lodge, just 2 hours outside of Darwin, is the perfect destination for your outback wedding.
With the Mary River National Park surrounding it, Wildman is an inspired outback retreat offering all the creature comforts. It’s the perfect setting for a bride and groom who want an outback adventure and the ultimate romantic experience.
To prove that wedding glamour and outback themes can coexist, Wildman recently held a wedding shoot with a difference. We fused designer wedding fashion with our ‘uniquely NT’ backdrop to prove that the bush is a perfect destination for memories, which will be cherished for a lifetime.
Liza & Paspaley Elegance
Our bride was dressed in custom made bridal couture, designed by the talented Liza Emanuele. The dress perfectly complimented this outback setting, whilst still remaining feminine and dreamy. To finish this perfect picture the bride wore Paspaley ‘Lavalier’ white gold with a sapphire button necklace and diamond horseshoe earrings.
The Ultimate Location
On Wildman Wilderness Lodge’s doorstep, Leichhardt point and the surrounding wetlands made for an awe-inspiring backdrop. With wildlife-rich surrounds and so much space, the edge of this stringy bark savannah offered the perfect wilderness setting.
A Lovers Retreat
The unique safari tents presented a window into a world far removed from everyday life.
… and the romantic cabins, add a rustic but genuine comfort amidst the rugged wilderness.
At Wildman Wilderness Lodge you can experience an outback wedding adventure with the ultimate romantic experience.
