The Joshuas wedding in Whitsundays

Now, here is a destination wedding to inspire! And, as QB has a first-hand account of this beautiful celebration (yes, we were lucky enough to attend!), we can tell you just how extraordinary this wedding was!

The devilishly handsome Josh & Josh – affectionately known in the Whitsundays as The Joshua’s! – were the lucky winners of a $50,000 giveaway competition which was hosted earlier this year by Weddings Whitsundays and Tourism Whitsundays.

Following an eight-month planning period whereby they worked with local wedding suppliers to design their dream day, Josh & Josh (looking dapper in their matching blue suits) said ‘I do’ in a picture-perfect setting looking out to the Coral Sea from the shores of Paradise Cove Resort. Emotionally-charged, raw and touching are a few words to describe the beautiful ceremony – hence why there was not a dry eye to around. Aww, seriously guys, it was this sweet!

Taking advantage of their private island-like estate, Josh & Josh went on to enjoy the festivities of their occasion with their closest family and friends by indulging in cocktails & delicious fare – and a fair bit of action on the dance floor! All in all: a dream day in a dream setting brought together by a passionate group of Whitsunday wedding vendors.

Queensland Brides was honoured to be a part of such a beautiful day which was a real celebration of Australia’s yes vote to marriage equality and a momentous highlight of a fantastic Queensland region as an idyllic wedding location. Thanks, guys, for having us!
