a Cairns elopement & micro wedding event

Ditch the fuss on your wedding day and exchange your vowels in a more intimate setting, for a fraction of the price!

Our ‘Rainforest Romance’ Cairns elopement and micro-wedding event has been created to include everything you need to officially get married, including an enchanting rainforest venue, a beautiful personalised ceremony and a short photography session to capture the moment.

You are also able to choose if you would like to elope, just the two of you, or invite your nearest and dearest and get married in a micro-wedding setting.

There are three packages to choose from to suit your wedding vision and budget.

How does it work?

Our ‘Rainforest Romance’ Cairns micro wedding event has been created to offer couples a no-fuss way to get married. This package takes care of the ceremony and ‘official’ part of your day, including wedding portraits, and family portraits if desired. This means there is minimal amount of planning on your behalf, you just get to arrived and say ‘I do!’. 

Our 'Rainforest Romance' will take place on Saturday 7th of September, 2024.

You will arrive at for your time slot (either 15 minutes beforehand or at the designated time you are given if you chose the hair and make-up package), our venue is about 40 minutes out of Cairns so please be aware of this. You will then be shown to your ceremony space where you will spend about 30 minutes exchanging beautiful words and marrying your best friend! Afterwards you will spend 30 to 45 minutes having your wedding day captured with your photographer, and family photos if you opted for guests.

Then what?

The beauty of elopement or micro-wedding is it is totally up to you!

You could:

  • Hold a party for your reception and invite all your friends and family to celebrate the rest of your day with you (which is totally fun for them because there’s no waiting around for you guys while you do all the other parts of your wedding day like photos and travel).

  • Go to dinner with your nearest and dearest and enjoy the Cairns foodie scene.

  • Enjoy something for just the two of you to celebrate the rest of your day.

Or you could start your Honeymoon ASAP!

  • What is an elopement?
    An elopement is where it is just you and your partner who are at your wedding ceremony. We will provide two witnesses that are needed for the official documents to marry you. This can be ideal if you don’t want fuss during your wedding day, perhaps don’t like speaking in front of people and/or don’t want to try and choose who to invite to the ceremony. Afterwards you could then choose to include your family and friends in your day by having a party (reception) to celebrate instead.
  • What is a micro wedding?
    A micro-wedding is very similar to a normal wedding but only includes a very small amount of guests, often just immediate family. Like the elopement, you can always choose to include more of your family and friends in your wedding day by holding a party (reception) to celebrate with them after your ceremony.
  • What happens if it rains?
    As we will be getting married in the rainforest, this could happen. We will have two clear umbrellas on hand for rain bursts or for photos, however if it is a rainy day we can hold the ceremony under the veranda to keep you dry and still offer views of the creek and gardens.
  • How many guests can I have?
    If you decide you would like guests at your wedding, you can invite up to 12. Please be aware however, that guests will need to stand as there will be no seating provided. Guests will also need to arrive 15 minutes prior to the time and leave immediately after group photos to ensure there is parking space for the next couple and their guests if they chose to have them.
  • Do other people get married on the day?
    Yes, other people will get married on the day, this is what allows us to offer our services at such an amazing price. There will be a half hour time buffer between each couple’s package to help ensure privacy and space at the venue. If you have any concerns about this, please let us know.
  • What date is the ‘Rainforest Romance’ event available on?
    Currently our ‘Rainforest Romance’ event is being held on Saturday the 7th of September, 2024.

    We will be offering packages at 9am, 10:30am, 12midday, 1:30pm, 3:00pm, 4:30pm. Packages are for approximately 1 hour.
  • Where is the ‘Rainforest Romance’ event being held?
    The ‘Rainforest Romance’ event is being held at a private retreat at Bellenden Kerr on Harvey Creek. It is about 40 minutes outside of Cairns. If you would like more information please contact us.
  • What if you we don’t like photos or don’t want 30 minutes of photos?
    This is your wedding and although your package includes the capturing of your day, you can spend the rest of your time after your ceremony how you would like. If you just want a couple of snaps of you of your partner together and then want to opt for a nibbles platter to sit and enjoy in the gorgeous setting that your venue is, you can absolutely do that. Let us know your preferences and we will do our best to accommodate you.
