Port Douglas Weddings

Port Douglas Weddings was established in 1996, and was the first wedding business in the village of Port Douglas, Queensland. Since then we have been planning and organizing an average of 200 weddings per year, for couples from all over the world as well as Australia.

Port Douglas Weddings is the booking agent for all weddings at St. Mary's by the Sea - a historic 1880 fully restored non-denominational church. The chapel, which is situated in the heart of Port Douglas has a huge glass altar window which offers breathtaking views of the Coral Sea and rainforest clad mountains, stained glass windows, traditional wooden pews and a church bell. It can comfortably seat 80 guests, though we have squeezed in up to 100-110 with standing room at the back.

St Mary's is an affordable, truly beautiful venue for your special day. We can take care of all your wedding arrangements from church hire, photography and video, transportation, hair and make up, to flowers and music.

Alternatively, if you prefer a tropical outdoor setting for your ceremony, please contact us for details of our preferred location.

Take the stress out of your destination wedding and let us take you down the aisle in style!

We had our wedding ceremony at St Mary’s by the Sea back in July and we could not have asked for a more perfect setting. From the first moment I contacted Shobha at Port Douglas Weddings, I knew we had made the right decision. The service we received was nothing short of amazing and we would highly recommend this perfect chapel to anyone considering having their wedding in Port Douglas. Not only was the venue perfect, all of the recommendations we were provided were spot on. Anna the celebrant, Rob the photographer, Sara the cake maker and Kristy for hair and make-up were all outstanding and we would highly recommend each one of them. We will never be able thank you enough for creating the perfect day for us. - Courtney & Jaimon

Thank you so very much! Our day was perfect, thanks Shobha! From start to finish Shobha’s attention to detail, answering questions responding to calls and emails has been second to none; nothing is to much trouble. Jacky’s help on the day, organising guests and taking pics was fabulous, so professional and experienced! Would highly recommend these beautiful ladies to assist you to have your dream/ carefree wedding! - Thanks again, Bianca, Aaron, Charlotte and Oliver 😃

From start to finish Shobha made the journey so incredibly easy! Very professional, yet relaxed and a very personal experience that really was perfect! Highly recommend! - Nicole & Matt

Shobha made sure we had a fantastic wedding experience and was great to deal with from the word go. The day went off without a hitch and Sarah Woods was the best celebrant ever and went along with all our crazy suggestions for our vows and made our day so much fun. Highly recommended. - Kev & Phil
