Your Love Story…

Jamie and I met at the Normanby Hotel, Brisbane in 2011. We both moved to Mackay for my teaching job and fell in love with Airlie Beach while we were there. Jamie proposed on New Year’s Eve 2015, whilst we were holidaying in Melbourne.

 

Destination Wedding…

Having a close family, it was really important to us to make our wedding day about our family as well as our marriage. By having a destination wedding it allowed all the people who mean the most to us to have a holiday also. Everyone was extremely relaxed and the “wedding stress” didn’t exist. It also gave us a chance to show our favourite piece of paradise with our nearest and dearest who were mostly from Brisbane.

 

Wedding Week…

We spent the majority of the 7 days hanging out at the Coral Sea resort, where our family stayed with us. The view from the pool was magical and we didn’t need to venture out!

 

Whitsunday Wedding Venue…

We chose Coral Sea purely for the world class view that can be seen from the ceremony lawn. It was breathtaking!

 

Wedding Day Vision…

Rustic theme with a pop of colour from my flowers!

 

Cocktail or Sit-down…

We had 70 guests for a sit down meal. We chose to limit our guests so we had a chance to mingle with everyone and enjoy the day!

 

Splurge Vs Save

We splurged on the venue and accommodation and saved on music by creating our own playlists using Spotify, limiting our guest numbers, recording our own ceremony and DIY invitations.

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!

Kara and Josh – Boathaven Beach and Peppers Airlie Beach

My advice to other bride and grooms, especially ones that are finding the whole wedding planning a daunting task, go with a destination wedding and have someone else plan it all for you! It takes the stress out of it all and they are good at what they do!

Natalie and Matt – Villa Botanica

We had a bit of a whirl wind with Cyclone Debbie hitting the area 6 weeks before the wedding. We were so lucky that the Whitsundays wedding community rallied behind all the brides and did everything they could to accommodate and re-home weddings at the last minute.
