Questions and Answers

Is Port Douglas Weddings & Hire just a styling agency?

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

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!

Does Port Douglas Weddings & Hire have its own Venue?

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

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. 

Do you only work in Port Douglas?

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

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. 

Can we bring personal items?

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

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

Can we get things delivered to your office?

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire

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.

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.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review Prue. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Adrian to make your day perfect.

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.

The ladies at Port Douglas Weddings & Hire are so lovely and so accommodating, they understood my vision as soon as I made contact with them to send through my (very detailed) vision boards and always respond to my pages long emails and settle all my worries! Their range is very modern and I cannot wait to work with them on my dream day! They even send out beautiful Christmas Cards wishing us season's greetings, above and beyond!!!

They organised and managed our whole wedding except for catering and they did a fantastic job!

Vicki and her team together with Ward Benedict turned my wedding vision into reality. My husband and I changed the ceremony venue the day before our wedding, which she was happy to accommodate and met up with us to go through all the details. I also couldn’t sleep the night before of my wedding and first thing in the morning at 7am I sent her a text asking to change the arbour type and she did !!!!!!!! With these last minute changes, it is very clear she works with the attitude “whatever you want, we can do it!!” This is what you want when you are trying to plan a wedding and can’t be physically be there and hence make last minute changes when you arrive to your destination wedding. The set up for both ceremony and reception was just beyond magical, our guests all loved it and described it as one of the most beautiful weddings they have been to. My husband and I look back fondly of our fairytale destination wedding .....Thank you so much Vicki and your team in creating our dream wedding. Love Mr and Mrs Perna Xoxox

Shobha and Jacky from Port Douglas Weddings were just so helpful for our wedding at the St Mary's by the Sea chapel in March 2018. They were so easy and lovely to deal and made things super straightforward. Always there to help with all my questions - nothing was too hard! Thanks again to both of you for helping make our day so special!

We booked the chapel St Mary's by the Sea and it was absolutely beautiful. The staff was of great help giving information and arranging details for the chapel last minute. The only small issue was that the lighting in the chapel made the photography very challenging. Communication was excellent !

Loved it and we all were able to fit !!!
