Beware of Sandflies!!
We recently had a destination Bride who had decided to go for a run 5 days before her upcoming Wedding in Port Douglas. As she was new to Cairns she was unaware of the sandflies issue we have on the Esplanade particularly down the airport end.
As a result she was covered head to toe in bites which ended up infected and looked like purple sores. After extensive makeup covering she managed to hide the majority of them, but had also spent her pre wedding week medicated and in agony. She did however look absolutely stunning when we finished her hair and makeup in Port Douglas.
Try and remember pre wedding little common mistakes, like :
sunburn, mosquito bites, rich foods leading to gastro, sea sickness (forget the reef over 20 knots)- it can take another day to recover!
