Cairns, the unofficial capital of Far North Queensland, is a perfect place to hold your wedding. With venues that can cater for elopements of 2, to grand affairs of hundreds, Cairns truly has something for everyone.
Cairns Wedding Photography is a broad term, encompassing all the regions of Cairns (The Tablelands, the Beaches, etc), along with Cairns City itself.
There are a myriad of attractive photo locations in the heart of the city – from the urban landscapes and backgrounds of the city centre, to the beautiful tree-lined walkways and water features of the Esplanade.
Further afield, other stunning photography opportunities abound, from the striking reflective glass of the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre, to the quaint beauty of Freshwater Station, to the picturesque serenity of Centenary Lakes.
As for wedding reception venues, you are spoilt for choice in Cairns. Some of my personal favourites are:
Pullman Cairns International – a sophisticated, upscale venue located in the heart of the CBD, Pullman Cairns International can cater for any size reception from a small cocktail party, to a sit down dinner for 420 in their Grand Ballroom.
Reef Hotel Casino – with an impressive lobby, modern function rooms and excellent customer service, your guests are sure to be impressed by the Reef Hotel Casino – just don’t lose them to the gambling tables!
Hilton Cairns – Hilton is a world-renowned brand, and the Cairns property does not disappoint. With a stunning chapel, and the option of both indoor and outdoor reception venues, Hilton Cairns is a popular (and beautiful) choice for weddings in Cairns.
Shangri-La Hotel Cairns – The Shangri-La Hotel, on the Marina in Cairns, has several reception and ceremony options available, most featuring water views. It has many of its own stunning photo opportunities, and is also easy walking distance to the beautiful Cairns Esplanade walkway.
Whether you’re after something big & dramatic, or something small & quaint, Cairns will have the perfect wedding location for you.
