Fitzroy Island Weddings

Romantic Tropical North Queensland Island, Weddings & Receptions.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your lives and an occasion to be remembered for years to come. Start your life together on our sun kissed shores of Fitzroy Island, with an intimate island wedding ceremony just for the two of you, or invite family and friends to share your happiness in our piece of tropical paradise on the Great Barrier Reef.

Fitzroy Island Resort features several stunning ceremony areas including Welcome Bay Beach, our lush tropical resort garden, or for something a little more intimate – one of Queensland’s most photographed beaches, Nudey Beach.

A Perfect Venue For Weddings In Cairns

This idyllic tropical island is within easy reach of Cairns in North Queensland. Whether you are local to Cairns or are looking for that perfect remote wedding destination, that is easily accessible for friends and family, Fitzroy Island is the island wedding destination of choice for couples.

To get you into the island lifestyle, you will receive complimentary transfers to and from the island on our own Fitzroy Flyer, as well as a complimentary night’s stay in an Ocean Suite including a bottle of Australian Sparkling Wine upon arrival (applies to bride and groom only).

We understand that planning a wedding can be quite stressful and you will have to make some significant decisions, which is why we will work closely together with you to ensure your wedding will be one to be remembered for a long time.

Our Celebrant

We would also like to introduce to you Adrienne Doyle, our resident celebrant.

‘When I first came here I was amazed at the beauty of the island and its surrounds and the ease of access from Cairns. I love watching the weddings that are regularly held on the island and I thought what a great privilege it would be to be involved in and share the joy of that special day with couples getting married in such a delightful venue. I qualified as a registered marriage celebrant and have been conducting weddings on the island since 2014.

I love living on the island. I like meeting new people, determining their particular wishes and requirements for their special day, guiding them through the preparations and statutory requirements of a wedding and then sharing their special day with family and friends.

I would love to discuss your wedding here on Fitzroy Island, you may contact me through the Events Team and I look forward to hearing from you soon.”
