There are no shortage of open-air locations with the aptly-named Sunset Beach or enchanted forest offering a great balance of natural beauty and practicality. Plus an added advantage of a winter wedding is better choice of availability for your cake makers, photographers and celebrants.
In winter, the world's largest sand island offers couples much more than just sand and surf – with Kingfisher Bay Resort's bush chapel, stunning Centre Complex and more relaxed Dingo Den 'wallum hideaway' offering equally stunning venues for both ceremonies and receptions.
Kingfisher Bride, Emma Baird, chose Fraser Island for her destination wedding after growing up in nearby Hervey Bay.
"My husband-to-be and I were looking for an outdoor setting for our wedding – a place where we could have our family and close friends gather to celebrate with us in a unique and stunning location," she said.
"We didn't want just a day of celebrations – we wanted our guests to mingle and get to know each other before the wedding – and for our loved ones to stay on and enjoy some quality time together."
"We had so many comments from our guests about what a stunning place we'd chosen; how nice it was to have everyone stay over at Kingfisher Bay; and how easy it was to catch up with everyone,"
"It couldn't have been more perfect."
Kingfisher Bay Resort's dedicated weddings' specialists can assist in making the event - for two people or one hundred and fifty people - a romantic and memorable experience.
The resort caters for all types of receptions from informal cocktail parties and barbecues to elegant or formal dinners.
Receptions can be held in the spacious air-conditioned ballroom, on the deck overlooking the pool or western beach. The resort's signature restaurant, Seabelle, is perfectly suited to small, intimate wedding suppers for those who just want closest friends and family.
And when the celebrating is done, the bridal party and their guests can retire and enjoy the award-winning resort hotel, self-contained villa accommodation or holiday houses on Fraser Island's western side.
The activity options are endless - relax with a cocktail by one of the four swimming pools, play tennis, simply bubble in a spa, indulge in a massage, enjoy good food and wine or just go fishing and get chef to cook your catch. Kingfisher Bay Rangers take tours to explore the World Heritage-listed island or there are four-wheel-drive hire options.
Beautiful winter days, Fraser Island's golden sands, majestic forests, and dune lakes set the scene, and Kingfisher Bay Resort's dedicated wedding team just adds the finishing touches.
