Your Love Story…

We met through a mutual friend, and became friends ourselves before we realised that there was more to it than just friendship. Nick was destined for Flinders Island, and we made the move over there after just a couple of months of being together. It took us both out of our comfort zones, and allowed us to really forge our relationship without any previous ties or friendships to influence anything.

When we returned from Flinders Island, we lived for that summer in Lakes Entrance and planned our next adventure together. We built a camping trailer and bought a 4WD to travel around Australia… We made it as far as Airlie Beach before we decided to sit for a week and reconfigure our gear for the warmer weather in the tropics. So far, we haven’t left. Nick got a job flying aeroplanes, and Gyan started working at Cactus Jacks. And now we own our own business up here!

 

Wedding Day Vision…

No particular style, everything just ended up coming together in the end. Because I got a lot of stuff online, I never saw my flowers and bridesmaids dresses together until the day of the wedding. It all worked out great though.

 

Sit Down or Cocktail…

72 guests, cocktail style, as we wanted people to get up and mingle as much as possible. We are fun, relaxed and happy people, and we wanted our wedding to be the same.

 

Splurge Vs Save…

We allowed a good amount of money for food and alcohol, our photographer and my dress. pretty much everything else was sourced from the internet, on sale or second hand.

 

Whitsunday Wedding Venue(s)….

We wanted something to reflect us as a couple and why we live where we do. The beautiful tropical gardens but also a relaxed feeling. The Palm House was perfect for the reception, all our guests were in the one place and no one had to worry about traveling too far. It was like having our own little family village and gave both our families and friends a good opportunity to mingle before the wedding day.

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.
