Flawless hair and makeup, divine accessories, beautiful bows and a full length cathedral veil… Belinda’s wedding day look was absolutely flawless and so well suited to her personal style. Opting for an ivory wedding dress and adorning her bridesmaids in dusty pink meant that the colourful backdrop of Daydream Island was the true hero on the day and resulted in a beautiful wedding album captured by Iconic Bride Photography.

Belinda spent the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids in Daydream’s superb Rejuvenation Spa which meant they had beauty therapists, make-up artists and hair stylists are all on hand to tend to the bridal party. The ladies then relaxed and got changed in one of Daydream Island’s spacious and stunning bridal suites.

Belinda and Daniel were treated to a sparkling view over the Whitsunday Islands from magical Lovers Cove for their wedding ceremony and to top off the true tropical Australian experience they were treated to surprise guests in the form of local kangaroos. Lovers Cove is a spectacular sheltered inlet, featuring a large deck on a white coral beach, decorated with bamboo torches and an arch and white carpet runway from Events Company Whitsundays. Mr and Mrs Winton exchanged vows as the waves lapped at the shore, in a location that’s like heaven on earth. Guests were handed parasols upon arrival to shade themselves from the afternoon sun before heading off for post ceremony cocktails and canapes as the bridal party headed off to adventure around Daydream Island in a Rolls Royce Wedding Buggy on their photo tour.

Daydream Island provides an array of photo locations, from the dramatic rocky coastline next to Lovers Cove, to the palm fringed, grass lined beachfront at Sunset Beach, through to tropical gardens, sparkling pools and of course the dramatic timber jetty that has produced so many iconic Whitsunday wedding photos.

The resort also offers four ceremony locations and nine reception venues that cater for two – 200 guests. With over 100 guests in attendance Belinda and Daniel opted to host their reception in the ballroom-style Daydream Island Room. The room was adorned in white draping, chandeliers, sparkling statement centrepieces with very cute nautical references including timber lighthouses, starfish and live fish in large glass bowls. The couple created a stunning setting to dine, drink and dance the evening away before the entire wedding party were able to retire to their on-island resort accommodation.

Belinda and Daniel are now living their ‘happily ever after’ and have a very welcome addition join their family this year. They are looking forward to visiting this Whitsundays paradise for many anniversaries to come.

Emily and Phil – Coral Sea Resort

From the moment we visited Coral Sea Resort for the first time we both fell in love with it and knew it was where we would hold our wedding. We absolutely loved that it provided beautiful location options for both our ceremony and reception which meant our guests did not need to worry about travelling between venues.


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!


Tanya and Brendan – Montes Reef Resort and The Palm House

Parasols, lace, chandaliers and a VW Kombi were just some of the elements that went into this shabby chic beach wedding in the Whitsundays. A seaside ceremony on the sand, followed by a formal reception at The Palm House.
