The unexpected world events of the last few months have forced Australians to postpone organised events to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Many couples have seen their wedding plans unfortunately altered by the crisis, thankfully things are quietening down and the wedding industry is livening up again. Destination weddings in Australia, especially beach wedding Queensland, are among the most popular options as they allow couples to organise the most important day in their lives respecting Covid-19 restrictions and without compromising on wedding planning at all. 

REASONS WHY CHOOSE A BEACH WEDDING IN QUEENSLAND

Aside from being able to have your reception outdoors and comply with regulations, there are several other reasons to opt for a beach wedding Queensland:

THE OCEAN VIEWS

The background of your wedding is very important as we all know the feeling of seeing the same thing over and over again. We all have been to a bunch of weddings at the same venues and at some point guests get bored because they have a similar experience every time. Getting married with a sandy beach in the background while your guests enjoy the pleasant ocean breeze and the sound of the waves can change your wedding experience completely. Guests will definitely remember your celebration and they won’t be able to say your wedding was just like the rest.

Getting married in an ocean setting comes with a couple other advantages. On the one hand, you will be saving money on decor as nature itself is beautiful enough to provide the perfect backdrop, and on the other your wedding photographer will be able to take stand-out photos with the perfect canvas. So why spend countless hours and dollars on preparing wedding decorations and looking for the right setting for a photo session when you could have both outstanding decor and unique photos at the same location?

HONEYMOON RIGHT THERE

Travel restrictions have prevented Australian couples from having destination weddings and honeymoons overseas, but the situation is not affecting Queensland couples too much, having the perfect wedding destinations on their doorstep already. Even if you cannot travel outside the state, you can still enjoy one of the best wedding options ever – a beach wedding Queensland style. Once you’ve has your beach wedding why not just stay and honeymoon in Queensland? Great temperatures and beautiful views all year round make the Queensland beaches perfect honeymoon spots. You avoid costly flights, driving to the airport, getting through security, going through a long plane ride, and travelling again from airport to your accommodation. With a destination wedding you can simply get back to your honeymoon suite after the wedding and start your dream honeymoon together. 

If a Beach Wedding Queensland sounds like the right choice for you, one of the destinations for the perfect beach wedding and honeymoon is Airlie Beach, located on the Great Barrier Reef and home to the world-famous Whitsunday Islands. Airlie Beach is located in a subtropical climate, which means it has fine weather year-round. Summer is the wet season, with temperatures up to 32°C but with less rainfall compared to the nearby Whitsunday Islands. Many couples get married there in winter, when the average daily temperature is a comfortable 23°C and the stinger season is over.

You can also get to nearby Whitehaven Beach from Airlie Beach via boat, helicopter, or plane. Once you get there, it’s easy to see why it ranks highly among the world’s best beaches – it is made of pure silica sand which stays cool even in the hottest days and the water has an incredible azure colour.

Airlie Beach has a lot to offer to visitors, both families and those enjoying an adrenaline rush. For the first category, popular options include the Conway National Park, walking trails, Mount Rooper Track, the Coastal Fringe Circuit, and the Conway Circuit. Adventurers can choose between various thrills, such as scenic flights, helicopter rides over the Great Barrier Reef, an aerobatic mission in a Soviet warbird, jet boat rides with Island Jet Boating, and Skydive Airlie Beach, a service taking you to Australia’s most beautiful drop zone. As a worldwide renowned attraction, the Great Barrier Reef can be visited through several tour companies offering the most diverse experiences and activities such as staying overnight on a boat, doing certified dives, snorkelling at various locations, etc.

LEAVE THE STRESS AT HOME

Wedding planning can be notoriously stressful. Couples are tempted to cut corners which can then end up leading to more stress. Family members argue. Decisions are tough to make. You need to order the cake and meet with the photographer, along with a heap of other tasks. It is an endless struggle. 

 Many couples have that moment where they wish they could just elope and forget about the planning. A beach wedding Queensland will allow you to do just that. Destination wedding venues such as Villa Botanica, Whitsundays, usually provide an in-house wedding planner because it is simply not practical to organise the event if you do not live there. The venue’s wedding planner makes it their job to cater to you and your special day. At Villa Botanica they’ll give you the right wedding planner to take care of all the details.
