No! While we really love the styling aspect of every wedding, our dedicated planners handle everything from styling to accommodation, venue hire to catering, hair and make up to entertainment, and transport to videography. We pride ourselves on making your job as easy as turning up on the day and saying I do. Planning a wedding can be very stressful, especially if its across the country, so we are here to relieve that pressure and make your wedding day as magical and stress-free as possible. 

We also organise engagements, Hens & Bucks parties, pre-wedding dinners, recovery days, and child minding. You name it, we can do it!

Yes we do! Our magical Rainforest Grotto is located just outside of Port Douglas, in a secret location, guest access only by bus. There is no curfew, a maximum sit down capacity of 500 people, and has catering and toilet facilities, as well as plenty of space for sit down or cocktail style events. This beautiful venue can be used for both ceremonies and receptions, and can be styled any way that you would like. It is a blank canvas, and you are holding the brush!

While we love our little slice of paradise amongst the tropical rainforest, we understand that this is not what everyone wants. We work with almost every venue in the Port Douglas, Cairns and Daintree areas and have great relationships with many of the local suppliers. 

While Port Douglas is our main area of expertise, we are more than willing to travel as far south as Cairns, north to the Daintree and west to Mareeba. 

Yes! We encourage all our clients to add their own special touch whether it be providing DIY items, sentimental features or items of furniture. 

Of course you can, we actually love getting deliveries! It means we are able to keep everything safe and together in preparation for your big day, so you don' have to worry about lugging it from wherever you're coming from. 

Yes, in fact we encourage it. There is a Dan Murphy's in Cairns which delivers to Port Douglas and is much more cost effective than getting your caterers to organise it. We are also happy to pick it up for you and store it in our office until your big day.

Jade at Port Douglas Weddings & Hire was simply amazing. She made the whole process from inception to the wedding day incredibly easy. Jade's service allowed us to enjoy the process of planning the wedding with her and the wedding planning process all felt very personal. Jade and the team catered to our needs and worked tirelessly on the day to ensure everything was set up and went smoothly. She was flexible and always available to answer any questions we had. We were so glad we had a wedding planner - but even more glad that it was Jade!!

Words will never quite explain just how amazing Vicki Byron and their team are. To put it simply, they created our dream wedding and not a single detail was missed. They are amazing to deal with, particularly when trying to organise a wedding from a different state - they promptly reply to emails and phone calls and make planning a wedding a breeze. The final product - our dream wedding- is something that was simply amazing and will be remembered forever. We cannot recommend them highly enough. This is the team to create your dream wedding!

Vicki & her team went above & beyond to make sure our wedding day was absolutely perfect. We found it so easy planning a wedding across the other side of the country because Vicki made it that way! Which in turn made the whole lead up to our wedding the most special, exciting time of our lives... no stress involved at all! As soon as we met with Vicki we knew we were in great hands... & we definitely were! Nothing at all was too much trouble for Vicki, she is incredible at what she does & gave us the most wonderful wedding day we could have asked for. So glad we had her, wouldn’t have wanted anyone else by our side for the journey, she is a beautiful person.

Jade was so help and prompt with her replies to email, it made the lead up to the wedding stress free knowing we were in good hands. I'm so glad we decided to use Jade and the the team as it not only made the entire wedding day so easy, she also bought our dream vision to life.

PDWH were professional and easy to deal with. They were able to accommodate every request we had and more. I was even able to change the chairs last minute as originally when booked a year in advance I did not have a clear vision in mind, They were super accommodating and were able to change with no hustle. Jade met us the day before to have a run through and everyone was there on the day. It was truly a hustle free for me wedding exactly what I was looking for.

Is a one hour time gap between ceremony and canapes ok?

We are looking to have our ceremony at 3pm, and then canapes to start at 5pm, this means there will be a one hour gap from 4pm-5pm. Looking to have both the ceremony and reception at the same venue. Is it acceptable? To entertain guests, there will be a photobooth along with a few platters of snacks, and a bar tab on soft drinks and coffee/tea. Alcohol will be available at 5pm once canapes start. Or if they prefer, they can explore the venue gardens and take some photos.

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

Hi Anna,

How lovely to hear from you! 

We have lots of clients who have gaps between ceremony & recpetion! Most couples who are having both at the 1 x venue will either just offer drinks during the time gap or the guests will head into town to do as they please for an hour or so. We generally recommend the second option as this gives our team time to pack down the ceremony without the guests being there. Where are you planning on having your wedding?

Speak soon!
