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!

Lauren and Mitchell – Hamilton Island

I definitely recommend a destination wedding because not only did we get married on a beautiful island but we had from Thursday to Sunday with our loved ones to celebrate, we created memories that will last a lifetime.

Lesley and Ian – Marine Club

Ian had been a volunteer with the Marine Club so knew the location well and how beautiful it was. The foreshore was just stunning on a lovely day, so we had hoped our special day was one of those “just stunning days”. We were blessed with the perfect weather and location, everything on the day was just magical!

Qiret and Alex – Peninsula, Whitehaven Beach and Peppers Pavilion

We wanted a simple but beautiful wedding as the natural backdrop is stunning so we didn’t need to go overboard! I chose coral, gold and ivory as the colour which complimented the turquoise sea and white sand. The reception was decorated with fairy lights, flowers and bunting with sweet soul music playing in the background, it was perfect! :
