Get Wed in Paradise, Passport Free!

A destination wedding in Queensland

So the chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re recently engaged (yay!), or you can’t wait to be engaged (us too!) and you’re starting to daydream about the big day!

Perhaps you’ve also caught wind of a little wedding trend known as the ‘destination wedding’…

If you’re anything like us, the minutes may turn to hours as you sit scrolling and scrolling through breathtaking photos of beautiful brides in far-off distant lands. 

When considering a destination wedding, it is no lie that most couples first thoughts include places such as Bali, Thailand, Hawaii… All beautiful places, of course. However, there are so many questions when it comes to considering a destination wedding, and quite often it can seem all a bit too “hard-basket”…

But wait, what would you say if we were to tell you that paradise is closer, and easier, than you first might think?

Nestled away on the Queensland coast, lies a magical slice of paradise that boasts white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, crystal clear oceans, and some of the most insta-worthy views you could imagine… The Whitsundays proves you don’t need to jet-set off abroad to experience a tropical destination wedding. 

Let us inspire you – Here are our top 5 reasons why Paradise Cove Resort, here in the Whitsundays, is the ultimate wedding destination: 

Homely Comforts 

One big thing that concerns couples with a destination wedding is the idea of the unknown – What about language barriers? Different cultures? Having to exchange money? Getting the passports ready? There’s something huge to be said about the ease and convenience of having a wedding on your home turf. 

Paradise Cove offers the best of both worlds – It’s an Australian destination, yet with a distinctly Balinese feel… 

Easily Accessible 

A short flight from many of the major Australian airports, and you’ve landed in an unexpected gem of natural beauty. Or if you’re a road-tripping enthusiast, hop in the car and explore the sunny state on your way. For your wedding guests, this means they can travel passport-free, take the time to enjoy a little holiday, and explore one of Queensland’s most magnificent locations. 

Paradise Cove itself is located just outside the coastal town of Airlie Beach, on the Whitsunday mainland coast – It’s hidden away from it all, feeling like a million miles away, and yet only just a short drive or boat ride from all the town has to offer! 

Talk about choices! 

When you think of the big day… What backdrop are you dreaming of? 

Sandy beach? Tropical rainforest? Mountain views? Poolside? Manicured lawns fringed by swaying palm trees? 

Well, why not have them all? At Paradise Cove you can! 

We have multiple ceremony spaces, reception locations and an incredible range of photo tour opportunities, all in the one secluded estate that it yours for the day to enjoy and explore. 

You’ll be looked after

You may not have yet heard that the Whitsundays is considered the “Wedding Heart of Australia”… And this certainly isn’t wrong. Although the region is small, the wedding industry is seriously passionate – You won’t be short of options when it comes to selecting your dream team to help you with your special day. 

From celebrants to photographers, florists to caterers, entertainment, decorations and more! The Whitsundays is full of some of the most incredible wedding professionals that will help you create magic and memories!
