Port Douglas Wedding photography

Ok, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been so busy getting portraits and weddings out to couples before Christmas that I’ve had to neglect the blog. :(

Here are a couple of recent pics to tie you over until I make everything blog worthy.

This Is Adam & Eva ……Really.   They had an intimate private ceremony in the oldest rainforest in the world with only their immediate family at the beautiful Shambala, a  private house in the hills of Whyanbeal. Really, really beautiful.

So… I’ve photographed  an Adam & Eva in a garden of Eden ( well Whyanbeal ).   And yes, there were fruit trees and snakes . It’s on my resume’.

Cheers,

Shaun.

Your Port Douglas Wedding, St Mary's by the Sea.

st Marys by the sea 3

Blythe & Brad, st Mary's by the Sea, Port Douglas

So most of you guys are from somewhere  other than Cairns or Port Douglas, infact about 95% of my brides and grooms are either interstate or international.  Some of you have never even been to the area and won’t see it until you arrive just before your wedding. So I thought I’d be a good and helpful photographer and show you all around.

Probably the obvious place to start in regards to weddings would be St Mary’s by the Sea. This little  historical non denominational chapel was first built in the 1880’s. It is an Icon of Port Douglas and is literally a husband  and wife making machine. It’s sits perfectly in the beautiful  Port Douglas parkland, at the mouth of the Dickson inlet with views looking north along the tropical coast towards Snapper Island and the Daintree rainforest and the amazing volcano like Thornton’s peak. (It’s not a Volcano but it looks like one).

The inside of the Chapel sits about 80-100  on beautiful silky oak pews has fantastic locally themed stain glass windows and an enormous glass altar window  St Marys 1so you can be married overlooking the amazing coastal views I mentioned earlier. This window also gives THE BEST LIGHT at any chapel up here for wedding photography.

Anyway thats enough from me, Google it for more info’ here’s some images from the  St Mary’s wedding ceremony of Blythe & Brad . If you have any questions please load them as a comment and I’ll get back to you .

AHEM… Best to check actual seating numbers with Rob or Jackie  from ‘Port Douglas Weddings’ the chapels  sole booking agents. They offer a bunch of packages with most things included that will suit just about everyone.. But you can still use Port Douglas Photography for your wedding images.
