Where Tropical Wedding Dreams Come True.
Dreaming of a gorgeous, tropical destination wedding? Cairns, the vibrant & sophisticated hub of Far North Queensland’s wedding industry, is the perfect location. And the incredible Alamanda Great Barrier Reef Chapel, is the perfect wedding venue.
Located on the iconic Palm Cove beach front, you will find Australia’s only purpose built beachfront wedding chapel. Nestled amongst swaying palm trees with panoramic views of the Coral Sea, your guests will be impressed by the chapel’s jaw-dropping location. The chapel is non-denominational, and we are happy to celebrate the love of couples from all walks of life.
A destination wedding combines the romance & emotion of a wedding ceremony, with the fun of a tropical holiday. What could be better than blending two families and your closest friends by building memories together that will last a lifetime?
Exclusively managed by South Pacific Bridal, we have packages that allow you to arrange your ceremony yourself, or have the stress of organising this incredibly important day handed over to your very own Fairy Godmother – a professional wedding planner who will take your vision and deliver the wedding ceremony of your dreams.
Cairns is also the perfect base, or stepping stone for your honeymoon. Relive the memories of your incredible wedding whilst exploring ancient rainforests or spectacular coral reefs in tropical Far North Queensland. Or if jetting off overseas is more your style, you can fly direct from Cairns to dynamic international destinations such as Bali, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand, Hong Kong & China.
Talk to the friendly team at South Pacific Bridal about your wedding dreams. We’d love to make a gorgeous tropical wedding the beginning of your happily ever after.
