How does having an island wedding differ to a mainland wedding?

As soon as your wedding guests leave the Mainland they have an instant feeling of freedom, free from traffic, free from work free from the hustle that comes along with city living. The natural backdrop Straddie has to offer makes the memories and photos from the day exceptional no matter what the weather.
Destination weddings have become increasingly popular over the years and Stradbroke Island has some of the very best local wedding vendors available to help make your special day run as smoothly as possible.
