We met through mutual friends, and there was attraction from the first time we saw each other! We have been together for 10 years now 🙂 we got married just shy of our 10th anniversary. Justin surprised me, by proposing to me at my 21st Birthday party in front of 50 people. It was so sweet, he did it during his speech and had a hand painted sign saying “will you marry me? in gold glitter” and a big bunch of flowers, he got on one knee and asked as he revieled the sign. It was beautiful!

We chose the Whitsundays as our wedding location because it is somewhere we have always wanted to go; stunning!

We stayed for seven days and went on a half day cruise to Whitehaven Beach! We never wanted to leave, the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen! Pristine beautiful untouched beach!

I just wanted the wedding day to be simple, but also romantic.

The highlight of our wedding day was the amount of LOVE that was present on the day and the calmness that takes over when you see your husband to be, and that our nearest and dearest could be with us!

My advice to future brides is to ENJOY every single second, because it goes SO FAST! Months of planning, stressing, anxiety. Right up until the second you lay eyes on them. It all goes away and nothing else matters in that exact moment. Enjoy every second, take lots of photos 🙂 and relax!

If I were to change anything about my day I would have focused on getting more pictures, because I love them all; and would loved to have had a million!

We had a family moon! With our 6 year old son, we drove from Brisbane to Airlie Beach, and stayed at the Boathouse Appartments by outrigger! We did an all in one!

 

Anything else you’d like to say about your special day?

I would like to recommend; Roxy from The Wedding Planners Whitsundays, she is absolutely amazing at what she does, from the minute I made contact with her, she did everything perfectly!! Annie Lloyd-Lewis our celebrant, so calming and so beautiful with her kindness and words! Deb from Tropix Photography, amazing at what she does, during the ceremony you don’t realise she is there, she works her magic the whole way through! Joanne Dromgold make up artist! Perfect made me look like a princess! And Luisa from Whitsundays Wedding Hair Lounge, works wonders with hair! Whitsundays Baked Creations: mouth watering delish cake! Thank you for all of your hard work 🙂

Brittany and Kurt – Villa Botanica

Villa Botanica is AMAZING!! When I first laid eyes on it I just knew that was it. I was petrified to plan a destination wedding but they made is so easy. They had an online planning system and we had our very own wedding co-ordinator who made it all a breeze.

Whitsunday Wedding Pavilion

Hannah and Simon – Whitsunday Pavilion

Holding their wedding ceremony and reception at the Whitsunday Pavilion meant that this couple had the time (and budget) to treat their guests to a sunset cruise around Pioneer Bay. Departing Port Of Airlie Marina after the ceremony allowed the wedding party to enjoy a different perspective of Airlie Beach as the sun set over the horizon.

Brooke and Joe – Villa Botanica

We would have loved to get married in Bali, but because of older relatives this was not possible. Villa Botanica had everything we wanted and more, plus being in our own country it was easier for travel and allowed guests to have a mini holiday with less disruption.
