Backpacker wedding: easy countries to get married in!
My fiance and I need some advice about getting hitched overseas this March. He's Norwegian and I'm Australian and we're trying to avoid cross-continental family dramas by eloping...yeehah!
We'd love to do the deed somewhere cold and snowy...we're dedicated ski bums from way back.
We're currently living in China, so a place that doesn't require us to first travel back to our respective countries and organise witnessed paperwork would be ideal. Anything that can be done by correspondance is A OK.
Any suggestions, tips, ticks or potential problems that we might encounter??

You've got a lot of options. I had actually hoped to pass along a really cool site that I recall from years back, but couldn't find it. It was a blog by a couple who was traveling the world and got married in as many countries as they could, according to the local traditions and customs. It was a great site, but sadly I couldn't find it -- maybe someone else will have better luck.
I did find a few things that may be helpful though -- overall you can get married just about wherever you want, just as long as you've got the paperwork in order. Here are some things that might help:
