Island Weddings

Fitzroy Island (off Cairns) and easily accessible by commercial ferry operators, is a lovely destination for a tropical island wedding.

No beach permits are needed for beach weddings and the updated resort allows weddings in their gardens overlooking the sea.

Micha and Ian celebrated their relaxed family beach wedding here with some beautiful photos featuring one of the most spectacular sunsets.

Low Isles (off Port Douglas)

Low Isles island (off Port Douglas) is a gorgeous location for a wedding.  The island is a small coral cay featuring a heritage listed lighthouse.  It has a sheltered lagoon and is home to a breathtaking variety of soft corals, tropical fish and also has a turtle colony.

What a great and different way to celebrate your wedding and allow your guests to experience a fabulous day out on the reef.

There are a few commercial operators which provide reef trips to the island together with private charter boats.

Weddings are permitted on Low Isles, however you need first to apply for permission to The Great Barrier Reef Marine Authority.  Ask me more about this if interested.

Renewal of Vows

Whether  married for one year or fifty, renewing your vows is a lovely way to tell your partner that you love them as much, if not more, than the day you first married and to say that you would do it all again and choose them again.

Joan and Tony and Jan and Guy celebrating 27 and 36 years of happy marriage chose to do this on New Year’s Eve at Little Cove in Port Douglas.

I was very genuinely honoured to be the Celebrant for such a special occasion.

Bespoke Wedding Ceremonies

IMG_6760Bespoke Wedding Ceremony.   What does this mean?  This is a term employed to mean an item custom-made to the buyer’s personalized specification.

In the case of a bespoke wedding, the distinguishing points are the high degree of “customization”, and the involvement of the couple,

in the design of the wedding ceremony.

I specialise in Bespoke ceremonies, some couples want very specific customs/rituals included in their ceremony and I love to work with them to ensure

that all their wishes are met.

Recently for Angie and Cliff we included a very special “Smudging Ceremony” and some spiritual elements which were important to them.

It was very beautiful and special.

 

 

Unusual Weddings

Mel and Gary celebrated their 8 year commitment by marrying in full chicken suits.  A somewhat unconventional wedding, but no less commited couple.

They wrote a special poem for this occasion, which went along these lines:

“Today we are here and the weather is sultry

We don’t wear formal but prefer to wear poultry”.
