Janina & Bill’s Green Island Wedding

Janina and Bill met in Melbourne but being from Cairns, Janina wanted to get married in her home town.

The couple chose to have two weddings…the first was a traditional Greek ceremony in Redlynch, followed by a vow recital on the golden sands of Green Island before an outdoor reception under the stars.

To say it was idyllic really doesn’t describe the magic of an intimate beach ceremony…on an almost private island…at sunset…followed by an amazing display of mother nature’s colours and light as the orange sun slipped behind the mountains which form a stunning backdrop around Cairns.

Away from the mainland and surrounded by their closest friends the couple enjoyed a decadent seafood buffet on the sand, the outdoor tables were bathed in moonlight and the flicker of flame burners.

Dancing their night away it couldn’t have been a more romantic setting.

Check out some of the photos below that Derek from Wedding Eye took…and he’s also done a beautiful blog of what truly was an amazing 12 hours.

Finesse Makeup & Hair had the absolute pleasure of providing hair and makeup for the bride, her mother and Janina’s two bridesmaids. As one of her bridesmaids I am so excited to be able to say that despite a 4am start I never once had to fix or even touch my hair and makeup.  It lasted all morning inside a church, out in the sun and strong winds at the Marlin Marina for photos, my hair and makeup survived the ferry crossing to Green Island and then another five hours of photos, dinner and dancing outdoors on the coral sands of the Island.
