Why the Whitsundays…

We had visited the Whitsundays on a number of occasions before our wedding as it is only a short drive from where we live in Townsville. For us it is an amazing place for a quick and relaxing holiday. We had the luxury of choosing the worlds best beach, in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, and only a couple of hours away from where we live! It was a perfect choice for the simple but stunning wedding we were after.

 

Destination Wedding…

Besides the incredibly beautiful location we loved the privacy and simplicity that the Whitsundays provided.

 

Wedding Week…

We stayed in the Whitsundays for 7 days. 3 days in Airlie Beach and another 4 on Hamilton Island. The best day of our honeymoon was on the first night when we went to Magnums to watch the NRL grand final and our team won!! Go Cowboys!! We also had so much fun on Hamilton Island: jet skiing tour, ATV tour, go karting!

 

Wedding Day Vision…

We didn’t really have any particular theme. Our style was to just “keep it simple”. It wasn’t exactly a traditional wedding but it suited us perfectly.

We wanted our wedding to be stress-free and easy. No people. No drama. No table settings. No shoes!

 

Splurge vs Save…

We splurged on location! We could have chosen anywhere around the Whitsundays but we really wanted to get married on Whitehaven Beach so we didn’t mind having to spend a little more to get us there. We also splurged on rings to make sure we both got exactly what we wanted. But mostly tried to save wherever else we could. We didn’t spend a lot of money on my dress or his suit. My dress was bought online!

Everything was included in a package which made the entire planning process so incredibly easy.

 

Whitsunday Wedding Venue…

Whitehaven Beach has been voted the best beach in Australia and one of the best beaches in the world!! We have also visited Whitehaven Beach previously so when we decided to elope it was the first place we thought of. And it was perfect.

Cassey and Mark – Villa Botanica

Airlie Beach held some great memories for Mark and I as we got engaged on Whitehaven Beach after a helicopter ride over the “heart of the reef” just over 12 months prior to our wedding. It’s not easy trying to pick a wedding venue in the Whitsundays as there are so many possibilities.

Kimberley and Nathan – Villa Botanica

We chose a destination wedding because we wanted something different and memorable. The crystal blue waters and the incredible position of Villa Botanica completed my dream day. We loved how we could escape the cold New South Wales winter and go to the Whitsundays for incredible weather.
