We loved the idea of a Paradise away, the destination, scenery, peace, tranquillity and such an incredible expanse of beauty and nature to immerse ourselves in. We stayed in the Whitsundays for 5 days. We went out on a sailing boat and enjoyed the water sports activities.

We didn’t have a theme other than something that was beachy and embraced nature. We had our ceremony on Whitehaven Beach. We flew out by helicopter and had the thrill and adventure associated with this, and seeing the Whitsundays from above was absolutely spectacular. We didn’t have a reception, as we eloped! ? We had a perfect evening together with just the two of us at the Coral Sea Resort where we were staying.

My dress was an above the knee lace dress with sweetheart neckline, with a chiffon overlay attached to the lace bodice that flowed to the ankle. The dress had off the shoulder chiffon ties. Technical description aside, I felt it was the most appropriate dress for a tropical beach setting. It was a dress that enabled me to perfectly transition from the beach to something more formal with an elegant set of heels. I also had a delightful bouquet of white lilies and frangipani’s which added a splash of colour but still nicely blending with the dress.He wore a Classic Blue Hugo Boss suit and light blue Boss shirt which captured the theme of varying colours in the ocean at Whitehaven Beach and a perfect clear blue sky.

We were so lucky to be treated to a majestic day with absolutely perfect weather! Topped off of course with a helicopter flight to our ceremony, having the pristine Whitehaven Beach to ourselves which gave our wedding photos this incredible postcard scenery in every shot, and having the most amazing attention to detail with the delightful staff from The Wedding Planners Whitsundays and all who were associated with our special day. Instead of looking after everyone else, all the attention was on us. This was a definite highlight.

To remember that this is YOUR day and it should only be about the both of you and what you desire. So many weddings become about trying to please everyone else. In the end, it’s difficult to make everyone happy, so just focus on yourselves and embrace the day.

For us, eloping made perfect sense. Hassle free and totally about us! We had a get together with friends and family afterwards.

Thank you so much to our wonderful photographer who captured amazing photos of us and all involved with The Wedding Planners Whitsundays. We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wants simplicity, elegance, special attention and a mesmerizing day enmeshed with the beauty of the Whitsundays. We had the most divine time and this was captured so incredibly beautifully on film. We really feel blessed and have so much gratitude when we reflect on our special day. We can’t help but smile!

Betty and Sam – Whitsunday Pavilion + Whitsunday Sailing Club

I never really thought about Weddings until Sam proposed. I guess I never really thought about marriage either until I met Sam. We never wanted a big Wedding but we did want a special day to express our love and commitment to each other.

Brittany and Jack – Peppers Airlie Beach

Brittany and Jack searched for a wedding venue for almost 2 years in Sydney and after finding all of them overpriced and uninspiring they decided to look further afield. “We wanted something relaxed and not over the top. We never planned on going to the Whitsundays and just stumbled across it one day while searching online.”

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.
