Real Life Wedding | Steph & Craig

What made your day so special to you?

We were so humbled by how far some of our friends and family travelled to be there on the day. The wedding was on a Saturday of a long weekend, and a lot of people made the most of it and booked to stay 2 or 3 nights. So the celebration began the Friday afternoon when everyone arrived and continued on until the Sunday.

As a destination wedding, what would be your main recommendations?

Having a coordinator at the venue made it so easy for us, we emailed back and forth during all of the planning and nothing was too hard for them. The venue was happy to send through photos of the key wedding locations so we could work out where we wanted everything to be prior to arrival. Also choose a venue with accommodation on site so no one has to worry about getting busses home or driving. It was great that everyone could walk back to their rooms when the party was over.

What was your wedding theme?

We always wanted an outdoor beach style wedding with a relaxed feel. We really liked the Dingo Den at King Fisher Bay Resort because we wanted a cocktail style party and the fire pits topped off the casual theme. We put on our invites ‘shoes optional’.

How did you go about planning your wedding?

We had a coordinator at Kingfisher Bay who was amazing and helped with so much via phone calls and emails. The rest was a combination of us and our friends and family. We made a lot of our own decorations, including a shoe rack and illuminated LOVE lights. We managed to fill two cars and a van with our gear!

Where did you honeymoon?

We spent ten days in the beautiful Whitsundays, it was amazing!
