Vlad and I decided to have a very small wedding with only 6 guests! Having an intimate wedding on the Coral Sea provided the perfect experience for my husband and I who wanted a simple, beautiful, classic beach wedding. The location was accessible for a semi-elopement and was secluded enough for it to provide us with privacy. Keeping the décor white and crystal provided a beautiful contrast to the turquoise water as the backdrop.

I planned the majority of the wedding myself and the wedding coordinator was mainly responsible for the timing of events and the organization of our activities such as the helicopter flight to a private island to have a romantic picnic, and an island hopper cruise to see parts of the Great Barrier Reef.

I suggest to all future brides to try not to stress yourself out in the lead up to the wedding, it is just not worth it. Pamper yourself, relax, enjoy every moment….the nerves, the crying, and the excitement! Enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions of planning a wedding. Before you know it the day will be over as you move onto a different pathway in your life, with your husband beside you.

Keep a record of what you have paid for, and the contact details of each vendor. Also before you arrive at the destination make sure you confirm to make sure everything runs smoothly on your special day!

Our first dinner as husband and wife was in an ocean front gazebo at Coral Sea Resort, laced with fairy lights overlooking the moons reflection on the water with private meals served by an attendant. The Coral Sea is just as beautiful at night as it is in the day.

For a small wedding keep it simple, let people know the details months beforehand. Also make sure you know when you are arriving and how you are getting there. If guests have special needs let them sort out their own needs.

Lesley and Ian – Marine Club

Ian had been a volunteer with the Marine Club so knew the location well and how beautiful it was. The foreshore was just stunning on a lovely day, so we had hoped our special day was one of those “just stunning days”. We were blessed with the perfect weather and location, everything on the day was just magical!

SJ and David – Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island

Our plans for the wedding had to evolve almost over night. Before we left for Australia we had seen Cyclone Debbie forming and a few friends asked if that would effect us? I was sure that it would be long gone and everything would be cleaned up in a day or two. Little did I know the ferocity of the cyclone come landfall.

Helen and Gordon – Headland Park and Coral Sea Resort

With their hearts set on a seaside ceremony and an outdoors reception under the stars, this Melbourne couple decided it was just too risky to host their wedding in their home city renowned for its very unpredictable weather.
