North Queeensland Getaway AKA Wedding Planning

Rather than contend with Melbourne’s unpredictable weather, and given my love of palm trees and tropical greenery, I’m going to have a destination wedding!

Australia has so many stunning locations that fit the brief, but sunny North Queensland is hard to beat. The destination wedding business is booming and with plenty of options to explore online, I definitely could have locked in a wedding venue from the comfort of my couch. But who am I to say no to a short getaway? So I splurged on a weekend vacay to Palm Cove, in the guise of “Wedding planning”.

Soaking up the sun certainly took the stress out of what can be a stressful process, and after visiting a few different beachfront resorts, hotels and private venues, happily I found my perfect destination wedding venue near the beautiful Port Douglas.

During my short stay I was wowed by the fantastic cafes and restaurants dotting the main strip of Palm Cove, lapped up the warm tropical ocean water, and got a strong dose of Vitamin D thanks to the Queensland sunshine.

Feeling re-energized, I’m so excited to start planning all the other wedding details. Let the Pinterest board begin!
