Elopement the new trend in weddings
Magnetic Island is the ideal place for couples to elope and have a wedding on the beach surrounded by palm trees instead of friends and family. Many couples are choosing this elopement option for their wedding and saving thousands. Taking a holiday in North Queensland over a party where you pay for everyone's night of food and alcohol. A week in the tropics during the peak season from May to October is a holiday to remember with sunshine almost guaranteed. Magnetic Island with all its beautiful scenery and peaceful, relaxing vibe is becoming a popular destination for couples to come just with their children. Some bring their parents. Some bring their best friend. Some have their photographer and videographer as witnesses. I have a lovely musician friend with a sweet voice who can play you a song for your ceremony that is special to you and then sign as your witness. Two witnesses over 18 must sign the marriage certificate. Some couples also have their children sign or even just put a fingerprint on the marriage certificate which is completely fine.
After the ceremony a photographer will get some pictures on the beach and you might like to choose a second destination or a sunset for your photos. The options for accommodation are so varied that you can make the experience either a luxury indulgence at a special holiday house from Best of Magnetic or a budget trip at a lower price place through Airbnb. Wherever you choose, a private chef makes you feel so special on the night with incredible menu offerings from Chef Philippe and you can byo alcohol for a further saving.
