  • Marin - Hi,

    My name is Marina & I hoping you could please send me some more information your destination wedding packages around port Douglas.

    We are after a small and intimate wedding dinner/ceremony. We would have around 15 to 30 guests. We are after a simple ceremony by the water followed by a dinner (reception or just a nice restaurant) with our closes friends and family.

    We do not have a specific date in mind but we are hoping for nice weather. We are flexible with dates and we were thinking sometime in April, May or June 2015 depending on availability.

    Can you please advise how much your Wedding packages are with inclusions/exclusions and extras. (ceremony/accommodation and reception/dinner for guests)

    Keeping the cost of our wedding in mind, we would like to offer our guests a few choices on the type/cost of accommodation and we were hoping we could offer them a 4-5 or 7 night package with our invitations. Do places offer multiple room booking discounted accommodation rates should they choice to stay at our chosen accommodation?

    Kind Regards,


  • Kylie Matthews - Good evening, we are looking at eloping to Port Douglas last week in April 2015. We are looking for a simple package that doesn’t include accommodation as we are looking at hiring a private house with the family during the course of the week. My cousin is a professional photographer so we don’t require that either. Probably package 2 without accommodation and photography, how much would the package be.ReplyCancel

  • Stuart Cuming - Good evening!

    Hiya, myself and my fiance Ania were thinking of maybe eloping when we’re in Australia this coming February. It would be a very small wedding, either just the two of us or possibly just two of our friends.

    We like your site and would possibly like to work with you guys!

    I do have a couple of initial questions, I hope you can help.

    – I am a UK citizen and Ania is Lithuanian. She was born in Russia but is a Lithuanian citizen (she has a Russian birth certificate). I’ve done some research and I believe it’s fine for us to get wed in Australia, is that right?

    – We love the venues and pictures from Libby and Clint’s wedding on your site. I see it’s at the Thalia resort, would there be additional fees to marry there?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    Stu & Ania 🙂ReplyCancel
