Port Douglas is one of Queensland's premier holiday destinations and a superb wedding location. Its relaxed seaside village ambience blends superbly with the vibrant atmosphere of tropical style and sophistication, and its natural beauty and excellent year round climate allows for variety of locations to choose from.

Port Douglas offers easy access to caterers, event planners, restaurants, florists, hair, beauty and spas, photographers, limousines and other transport options, golf courses, not to mention a number of luxury resorts and holiday accommodation. Wedding planning at your fingertips!


St. Mary's by the Sea is a historic 1880 fully restored non-denominational church. The church, situated in the heart of Port Douglas, has a huge glass altar window which offers views out to the Coral Sea, stained glass windows, traditional wooden pews and a church bell. Port Douglas Weddings is the sole nominated booking agent for all weddings at St. Mary's by the Sea

Many couples choose to hold an informal ceremony on Four Mile Beach or in Rex Smeal Park. Rex Smeal Park is a popular outdoor setting located approximately 400 metres from St Mary's church. It is situated on the very edge of the Coral Sea with views to the Low Isles, and mountains of the Daintree Rainforest. It is the perfect backdrop to a tropical wedding.

Many restaurants in the village, including Zinc and Nautilus, host receptions. The five-star Sheraton Mirage resort has a glass walled Crystal Wedding Chapel overlooking Four Mile Beach.
