Think outside the box: unique wedding venues
When you've got a wedding theme in mind but the venue of your dreams that would match it perfectly is unavailable and/or unaffordable, it's time to consider getting married in unique wedding venues which still meet your particular wedding theme.
There are some amazing alternative wedding venue locations available if you're willing to think a little laterally, and to travel outside the capital cities, too.
Unique wedding venues and locations

They even have an in-house wedding stylist, Danielle from Wild Heart Events.
Kidogo Arthouse, Fremantle, WA
