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.

Leanne and Luke – Whitsunday Pavilion and Toscana Village Resort

Our wedding was beyond realisation and fulfilment. Luke and I had always dreamed of a destination wedding. A celebration that was simple, personal and unique for our families to enjoy (without the huge price tag). The Whitsundays had held a sentimental place for both our parents

Lynda and Jamie – Coral Sea Resort

Everyone was extremely relaxed and the “wedding stress” didn’t exist. It also gave us a chance to show our favourite piece of paradise with our nearest and dearest who were mostly from Brisbane.
