Congratulations! You’re engaged! Now for the fun part – wedding planning! No need to be overwhelmed with complicated seating plans and worried about stitching thermals into your wedding gown – come and get married in Australia’s destination wedding mecca – Cairns!
When it comes down to it, there’s a couple of great reasons that a Cairns destination wedding appeals to a potential bride and groom. Perhaps it’s because our balmy year round weather is much better than home, or maybe it’s the lure of swaying palm trees, lush rainforest, and the world famous Great Barrier Reef that is the deciding factor.
Either way, a Cairns destination wedding has the distinct advantage of culling your invitation list, and ditching a big city wedding in favour of the intimate tropical destination wedding of your dreams. Often for less than a wedding at home would cost too! There’s a reason that couples from Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide flock to Far North Queensland for their destination weddings. Whether it’s a tropical garden or beach wedding, or a chapel with the most spectacular views imaginable, it’s all here in Cairns & its glitzy beachside suburb, Palm Cove. And there’s no passport required!
What could be better than a romantic start to married life in the tropics? Cairns offers world class wedding venues and suppliers – chapels that make your guests gasp with amazement, internationally acclaimed photographers, tropical flower specialists, hair & makeup artists who can wrangle hair in the humidity and keep a bride looking impeccable from the first pre-ceremony photos, until the last glass of champagne. And there are reception and accommodation options to suit every budget and taste – truly is something for everyone. In fact everything you need, really is right here.
Some couples go all out, creating a destination wedding website full of travel, accommodation and activity tips. Some even pre-arrange group tours, or plan a welcome cocktail soiree or a lazy morning-after brunch at one of our fabulous beach side restaurants with their guests. Others allow their friends and family the freedom to make as much or as little of their Cairns get away as they wish – perhaps a long weekend, or maybe a longer break to reunite and celebrate with the couple long after the last of the wedding cake has been eaten.
Start married life off with a honeymoon in the Daintree Rainforest, or snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. Or if an overseas destination is more your style, Cairns is also an international gateway to some fabulous overseas honeymoon destinations with direct flights available to Bali, Hong Kong, Singapore, China & more.
