If you love tropical weddings, look no further than Cairns and surrounds. Cairns is at its best between the months of June to October. The high temperatures, humidity and rain of the wet season are a distant memory. In its place we are rewarded with sunny skies and perfect days of around 28 degrees maximum! If you want your wedding to have colourful sunsets, palm tree lined beaches and warm temperatures, you will love Port Douglas and Palm Cove. There are so many options for some beautiful photography in this paradise I call home.
Port Douglas is a coastal town about an hour’s drive north of Cairns. It is an ideal destination for your wedding. Four mile beach runs along the length of Port Douglas and has a number of picturesque spots for your special day. Of course beach sand does not suit everyone….. so there are other options such as St Mary’s by the sea, Little Cove and Rex Smeal Park. Port Douglas caters well for all tastes when it comes to accommodation and dining. You will find luxurious resorts and fine dining as well as cosy beach shacks and even camping options available. As someone that is passionate about photography and weddings, I would definitely recommend Port Douglas for your wedding!
Palm cove is a lovely seaside suburb just north of Cairns. I have spent many hours doing photography in this beautiful location. The esplanade is lined with majestic looking paperbark trees and beautiful resorts. The options for weddings are endless in this lovely seaside suburb. Recently I was honoured to be photographer for Holly and Tim’s wedding in Palm Cove.
I was privileged enough to be able to capture all the sweet memories from Holly & Tim’s wedding day and see their beautiful love through my lens. When Holly walked down the aisle between her proud parents, and I saw Tim wiping the tears from his cheeks I almost lost it myself! I’m not sure if there was a dry eye in the room.
Cairns is such a perfect spot for tropical weddings, and Palm Cove, being one of the most popular spots was perfect for it! With South Pacific Bridal’s beautiful Chapel nestled amongst the palm trees and The Reef House which is on the doorstep of the beautiful ocean; this wedding couldn’t have been more picture perfect!
