Port Douglas Wedding Venues

An outdoor wedding reception is a must when getting married in Port Douglas Queensland Australia. The combination of the sea air, the sunshine and the balmy weather and clear blue skies are what wedding dreams are made of and the locations surrounding Port Douglas are just the icing on the cake.

Just keep in mind that for an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception you may need a permit from the local council or a government agency; however your wedding celebrant should be able to assist you with lodging these papers or you can arrange it yourself by contacting the Port Douglas Shire Council.

Another thing to keep in mind is a contingency plan and that is to have a marquee set up for your wedding lunch or dinner just in case the sun is a bit hot or you experience a few tropical showers.

Port Douglas Private Holiday Homes

Imagine having your guests arrive at a multi million dollar beachfront holiday home where they will witness your nuptials, wine, dine, and celebrate with you as you begin your life together as a married couple.

Port Douglas has some stunning Port Douglas Holiday Homes available to rent for weddings and receptions and Port Douglas is also home to some of the finest catering companies and event organisers, eager to make your wedding reception one to remember.

Please note that it is not always possible to cater inside these private holiday homes due to being located in a residential area. You need to be considerate to the home owners next door who live in these homes on a permanent basis as they are entitled to peace and privacy just like you would be at your own home.

If the holiday home is located on the beachfront or next to a park then you may apply to the Port Douglas Shire council for a special events permit so that you may erect a marquee and then you can arrange a formal sit down dinner with entertainment.
