Elise & Byron say “I Do” in Port Douglas

Elise and Byron are from Melbourne but they chose to get married in North Queensland at 4 Mile Beach in Port Douglas.

Around five months before the big day, Elise and her mum flew to Cairns and traveled up to Port Douglas where they met with us for a hair and makeup trial.

Elise gave us an idea of what she wanted and we got to work on a look to match her stunning off-the-shoulder wedding gown!

Trials are great because they save time on the wedding day and also give everyone peace of mind.

But a trial doesn’t mean you can’t change your mind on the wedding day. Some brides are torn between two very different looks and having a trial allows them to rule one option out. Elise chose a swept back fringe for her trial but after wearing it all day decided she wanted more height for the wedding.

Elise and Byron booked Port Douglas Wedding Photographer Shaun Guest for their photos and Renee Creates to capture the day on video.

Floral Edge supplied the flowers and Sarah Woods performed the ceremony which was held at Little Cove next to Rex Smeale Park, followed by a reception at the historic and iconic Sugar Wharf.

Here’s a little video we took of the finishing touches being added to Elise’s hair on the morning of the wedding!

And here’s a far better video put together by Renee Creates!
