Your Love Story…        

It was New Year’s Eve 2000 when we got together on the bank of the Brisbane River with friends to watch the fireworks. We had a strong connection that night but neither realised that we had found our soul mate. That night was the beginning of our lives together and we have been inseparable ever since. Raymond proposed to me on top of Mt Gravatt Look Out after a very romantic dinner.

 

Destination Wedding…

We wanted a beach wedding and after doing some research on the internet we came across The Wedding Planners Whitsundays website and found the Elope Perfectly package. We had never been to the Whitsundays before so knew it was for us.

The best thing about a destination wedding has to be the location. Whitehaven Beach is the most beautiful place on earth!!

Whitsunday Wedding Week…

We were in the Whitsundays for 11 days. The night before the wedding we had dinner at Walter’s Lounge which was fabulous!

 

Your Vision…

We wanted a beach wedding – barefoot and casual and all about us. We wanted something very low key and natural – what could be more natural than Whitehaven Beach!

We did a hand fasting as part of our ceremony – once it was all done our celebrant Donna held onto our ribbon. She had placed it in her bag for safe keeping however a seagull had spotted it and tried to pinch it out of her bag and fly off with it. Donna stopped him just in time!!!

 

Honeymoon Heaven…

We island hopped from Airlie Beach over to Hamilton Island and then over to Hayman Island.

 

Splurge Vs Save…

We splurged on our rings – Stones Jewellers in Brisbane is the most exquisite jewellery shop ever!

 

Your Whitsunday Venue…

We have always loved the beach and I have always wanted to get married on the beach so Whitehaven was just the perfect location for us.

Peppers is a beautiful setting for a reception and even though it was only the two of us, the staff looked after us beautifully and made us feel special.

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.

Jo and Tony – Whitehaven Beach and Coral Sea Resort

We chose the Whitsundays because it was a midpoint for all our family and friends who were coming from New Zealand, Queensland, Western Australia and America. We had visited the Whitsundays a year earlier and fell in love with it.

Rhiannon and Reuban – Villa Botanica

Two years prior to our wedding we attended a wedding in Bali that was perfect in every way. We then decided that we wanted our wedding in Bali too. However having to travel and coordinate a wedding in Bali takes a lot of time and patience so we decided to have our wedding at Villa Botanica, the closest thing to having a Bali wedding in Australia!
