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.

Amelia and Aaron – Luxury Yacht Wedding

Ameila and Aaron fell in love with the idea of a luxury yacht Whitsunday wedding when it was suggested to them by their wedding planner. The couple had attended a number of weddings in the Whitsundays so it was important their day was in some way different to the weddings they had attended.

Naomi and Shane – Whitehaven Beach Elopement

This gorgeous little family of three decided that Airlie Beach was the perfect destination to celebrate their wedding. Opting for an elopement to Whitehaven Beach via Seaplane meant that they were able to save thousands on their day, yet still have a truly magical wedding experience in the Whitsundays.

Elaine and Shane – Whitsunday Pavilion and Peppers Airlie Beach

We didn’t really have a theme as such. I knew I wanted sunflowers as my main flower as my nan used to grow them and they’re such a happy flower so then everything centred around that.
