Love Story…

We have been together for 8 years and met in Sydney at the Hawkesbury River, we have always loved the water and got engaged on Daydream Island at the Chapel. We were on holiday and went looking around at the chapel and then we walked in and written in coral and candles was “will you marry me”. The Whitsundays has a special place in our hearts.

 

Destination Wedding…

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.

 

Wedding Week…

We stayed in the Whitsundays for a week and we relaxed and also did day trips to Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island but nothing compares to Airlie Beach. We have also previously done the Great Barrier Reef day tour.

 

Brides Vision…

The theme for the wedding was to take in the beautiful Whitsundays and keep everything else simple. My dress was Maggie Soterro and I had Christian Louboutins and my mothers pearl bracelet.

 

Sit Down or Cocktail…

We had 60 guests and it was a sit down. We wanted a smaller wedding but still wanted our guests to have the entire wedding experience.

 

Splurge Vs Save…

We splurged for our venue, photography and all of the elements and saved on simple table settings as the Whitsundays view was the main feature.

 

Whitsunday Wedding Venue…

After our first wedding location was destroyed by Cyclone Debbie we were upset but we were determined to have our wedding in the Whitsundays. We looked around and had many recommendations for Villa Botanica and honestly we now know why. It was the most magical day of my life and couldn’t of wished for anything better.

Rachel and Mark – Luxury Yacht Wedding

The only thing that guests were aware of was that we were getting married…we sent invitations that read “join us at Airlie Beach at 2pm”…the rest was a surprise. Both of us love boats and being out on the water, and we knew that was at the heart of what we wanted from our day. Also to give our friends and family a once in a lifetime experience of being on board a luxury yacht in one of the most pristine places on Earth!

Sonja and Chris – Marine Club Whitsundays

It was great knowing that all our guests had made the effort to come all that way just for us and that each of them truly wanted to be there with us on our special day. The absolute best thing is having everyone in one place for a week, it is probably the only time you can make that happen and it is just really special.
