14 Authentically Australian Songs for Your Wedding

If you’re going to tie the knot in Australia, make the affair feel quintessentially ‘strayan. A wedding at the beach or a pre-nuptial shoot in front of the Sydney Opera House may instantly and certainly make you feel that but there is nothing like the power of music to drive home the fact that you’re doing it in the great Land Down Under. Songs have the power to make you feel right at home, even if your wedding venue is a thousand miles from Oz.

Australia is so beautiful that artists make it a point to put their love for it in song. Here are some decidedly Australian songs for your wedding:

  1. “Down Under,” Men at Work

You know we would just mention this. But if you’re an Australian couple wedding in, say, Austria, you can’t help but be thankful to hear this at the reception.

That’s probably why the song appeals as much to foreigners as Australians: “Down Under” was a number one song in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, and New Zealand.
