Creative Centrepieces

log-slice-centerpieceFor a different look try using unusual centrepieces, like chopped wood and tea light candles.

                                         Or for a vintage feel, try old books stacked up to 4 high, with a few rose buds and a table number on top.

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!

Flower crowns are one of many gorgeous ways to wear flowers in your hair at your wedding. Often when we think of brides wearing stunning flower crowns, we think of warm summer weddings where there are lots of bright flowers in bloom, perfect for Nth Qld weddings!

  • Don’t be afraid to go outside
  • Don’t be afraid of getting a little bit of rain on your wedding dress
  • Do properly accessorize with adorable rain boots and colorful umbrellas
  • Do involve your bridal party in fun rainy day photos
  • Do be sure to lift your wedding dress up as you walk through the rain, a few rain drops on your dress is fine (but you won’t want to pay for the cleaning bills that will incur if you get it muddy)!
  • Do take fun photos of you and your groom through rainy windows
  • Do use rain reflections for fun photos
  • Don’t let the rain ruin your day!
