Choosing the right venue to suit your wedding or event is the most crucial aspect of the planning process.

For weddings in particular where the ceremony and reception may be at different venues, there are  many considerations to be factored in to ensure they match your style, budget and requirements.

One obvious factor in identifying potential venues is the number of guests who will be attending. The larger the guest list then generally the more restrictive your list of potential venues. On the flipside, very intimate gatherings can feel lost if they are held at expansive locations.

But there is no hard and fast rule when it comes to narrowing down your venue choice, different things work for different people and each venue offers something unique.

Thankfully in Port Douglas & Daintree we are blessed with a diverse selection of amazing venues and a great choice of suppliers experienced in providing their professional touch to each of these.

For prospective brides and grooms, the first step is to choose the type of ceremony and reception you want to experience.

Do you want to exchange vows in a quaint seaside chapel, under the swaying palm trees with the sand between your toes, next to a pristine river or underneath the rainforest canopy?

Would you prefer to host your reception in one of our sensational local restaurants, be dazzled beneath the stars in a chandelier-lit wonderland, soak up the surrounds of a breathtaking private
home or appreciate an incredible sunset over the inlet from your own charming heritage wharf?

All of this and much more are possibilities. Once you have settled on the perfect venue then it is so much easier to shape the menu, style and décor of your wedding or event to suit your needs.
