Why the Whitsundays…

We chose the Whitsundays as Chris and I both love the coast! We are both from Queensland and when we decided to elope, the Whitsundays was the first place to come to mind as our dream destination.

Who wouldn’t want to elope to the beautiful Whitsundays!

Wedding Week…

We had only a short amount of time to take off – as absolutely no one had any idea what we had planned. We snuck off for a weekend away, arrived in Airlie Beach on the Friday, married on the Saturday and returned home to our surprised families on the Monday!

 

Wedding Day Vision…

Chris are both very easy going, so when it came to styling it was pretty simple – with a background like the Whitsundays I don’t think there is much you need! My dress was a simple strapless style with a slight fishtail fitting.

For my bouquet I wanted it to resemble something messy and not at all intentionally placed, a cascading styles with all white and green. Flower Hut literally read my mind as it couldn’t have been more perfect!

I used an an old jeweled head piece that was placed in the back of my hair with babies breath, styled perfectly by the wonderfully creative Luisa from Whitsunday Wedding Hair Lounge.

 

Destination Wedding…

Having had planned for a moderately big wedding here in Townsville we had such a stressful time planning and organising a day that really neither of us wanted!

The thing that meant most to us was that we were about become husband and wife. There shouldn’t be a huge price tag nor a checklist for planning – we both believed it was about a commitment to each other without the stress of anything else.

The best thing about our destination wedding was driving down to Airlie Beach so excited with absolutely no stress or worry at all. Being able to trust Roxanne from The Wedding Planners Whitsundays with our wedding was absolutely bliss, she took care of everything! It gave us our day- stress free and exactly how we wanted it!

SJ and David – Whitehaven Beach and Hamilton Island

Our plans for the wedding had to evolve almost over night. Before we left for Australia we had seen Cyclone Debbie forming and a few friends asked if that would effect us? I was sure that it would be long gone and everything would be cleaned up in a day or two. Little did I know the ferocity of the cyclone come landfall.

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.

Laura + Ashleigh – Engagement Shoot

Usually on an engagement shoot the photographer remains hidden ready to capture the moment in complete surprise. However Laura and Ash were models for Fancy Photos a year ago and so together Laura and Vanessa decided that a photo shoot to promote a new product would be the best way to disguise the proposal and capture some incredible images.
