The Alamanda Chapel, what an amazing venue! Absolutely beautiful staff making sure everything went smoothly. Sam you're wonderful, thank you so much for everything you did. We will never forget our wedding day xoxo


We got married at Alamanda Chapel, the communication in the lead up was great and Sam made us feel so at ease. The chapel was just perfect in every way and people are still talking about how lovely it was. Thank you so much for helping us have the most perfect ceremony.

Tracy and Nick

We recently had the absolute pleasure of being married at the Alamanda Chapel in Palm Cove. We couldn't recommend South Pacific Bridal more - on our first visit to the chapel we immediately reserved our date and from the very beginning Sherie and Alice made our experience exciting and stress free. As we don't live in Cairns Sherie was in constant contact with us in the months and weeks leading up to our wedding to make sure every detail was exactly how we imagined. On our wedding day everything was seamlessly organised, from the perfect bouquets and the gorgeous cake to the brilliant photography and talented makeup artist, we could not fault a thing. Sherie, your relaxed and friendly manner made planning our wedding a fun and exciting time, we only wish we could do it all again!


We recently got married at the Alamanda and had the pleasure of working with the wonderful Sherie from SPB. Sherie made our wedding stress free and took care of everything which made it a lot easier especially being a pregnant bride. The wedding was perfect, it was everything we imagined and more. I highly recommend any bride to be to go see SBP. Thank you Sherie.

Nikki & Mark

South Pacific Bridal takes care of everything, which is perfect for interstate brides like myself. We had Sam looking after us on the day. She let us borrow a gorgeous little basket for our flower girl and just kept everyone calm before the walk down the aisle (including my dad). It made for a great day, zero stress! I would highly recommend Alamanda Chapel at Palm Cove, it was perfect.


Sherie from SPB was incredible at our recent wedding. She thought of every possible detail in the lead up to the wedding and as an interstate couple, guided us through the organising process. On the big day she was SO organised and calm and kept everyone and everything running smoothly. Sherie sourced a fantastic celebrant, photographer and hairdresser and co-ordinated everything to a tee. Jamie and I are so appreciative of her help and guidance and if you're looking for a beach wedding, would definitely recommend SPB. Claire from NuNu was also a great team with Sherie and assisted the smooth transition from our ceremony to reception. Palm Cove and the Alamanda chapel will forever be a special place for us and we can't wait to visit again for a wedding anniversary!

Jamie and Allira

Thank you so much for your organisation and support to make our wedding the very very special day that it was. We really appreciated your kind and relaxed approach both during the preparations and on the day itself. Over the last months many people had said how difficult it must be to plan a destination wedding - but your work and the systems in place at South Pacific Bridal made planning easy and with minimal stress. Due to the high level of professionalism we always experienced in our communication with you, we knew we would be in the best hands on the day with regards to photography, flowers, music, hair and makeup and the cake. We were not disappointed! The Alamanda Chapel is a perfect location for a very special wedding. Our guests have also thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Alamanda resort and enjoying the delicious food served by NuNu.


Thank you so much for all your help to make our wedding day so amazing. It was a pleasure to deal with you and you helped to make the ceremony so seamless and easy. The Alamanda chapel was as stunning as always. We chose to have a destination wedding in Palm Cove because of the Alamanda chapel and we were thrilled to hear that our guests had a great time and commented that we had "picked the most amazing place to get married.

Andrea & Brad

I cannot explain how magical our Wedding at Alamanda was last Friday. The beautiful Sherie made everything so easy organizing a wedding over 1000km's from our home town. Everything about the day was perfect- from hair and makeup with the lovely Danielle to our absolutely gorgeous celebrant Darlene. I highly recommend SPB services!
