Hannah & Ben - QT Resort

The team at PDWH did an absolutely amazing job setting up our wedding at QT Resort for our wedding in June 2017. Everyone just loved it, and when I walked in, it took my breath away! Jade & Vicki were so easy to chat with, all the way up til the big day and nothing was too hard for them to do. They listen to what you want, and go above & beyond to make sure you have it for your special day. I cannot recommend these guys enough!

I cried when I saw the set up. Jade & Vicki recreated my vision and made it more stunning than I ever dared hope it'd be. A million thanks for setting up our amazing venues and keeping the planning process so smooth!

Natasha & Luciano - Little Cove/Sugar Wharf

Port Douglas Weddings & Hire did an amazing job for our destination wedding in Port Douglas at Little Cove & The Sugar Wharf. From the start Jade & Vicki were so easy to work with. We had an idea of what we wanted our special day to look like and we were a bit worried trying to plan it from a different state however, when we turned up on the day, everything was exactly how we imagined it and so much more. Not one detail was left out! We thank you for making our day so perfect and will definitely recommend you to all family & friends.

Danielle & Matt - Little Cove/Rainforest Grotto

If you have OCD and struggle to let somebody else take control of your wedding then stop looking! Jade, you are a true asset to this business and you couldn't be any more helpful. Jade and Vicki were great with email correspondence and listening to my requests to ensure the day was everything I wanted. Matt and I thought we were in a fairytale on our very own wedding day, not to mention the love the guests had for our venue. Being a local, it was no problem for me to choose my own vendors. Thanks again Jade & Vicki, the grotto will always hold a special place in our hearts!

Courtney & Michael - Sugar Wharf

Hi Jade,

Jade, Vicki & her team were amazing to work with. Planning a destination wedding was never going to be easy but doing it in a different timezone was even more difficult, however, we never felt it as Jade & Vicki were always quick to respond to any queries and seamlessly amended our plans as quickly as we changed our minds.

Right up until the day the communication was fantastic and we always felt like we were completely in control. The set up was exactly as we had pictured and our night could not have been more perfect.

We really appreciated all the little touches that made the night feel so personal to us like the tribute and welcome board. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We also really appreciated the extra effort made to accommodate my step-brother who had a medical issue the night before the wedding and was only able to eat soft and pureed food. Many people commented that it was "The best wedding food they had experienced.

Overall the whole experience was brilliant, we had the most amazing day and night and we would not hesitate to recommend Port Douglas Weddings & Hire to anyone considering a wedding in beautiful Port Douglas.

 Lucy & Josh - Little Cove/Rainforest Grotto

Hi Vicki,

Thank you so much. I cannot provide enough positive feedback for you all. You have been so amazing. Planning from interstate is not necessarily easy to communicate, but it was with you. Nothing was too much trouble for any of you and you never once made me feel like I was being a pain in the ass - haha!

The day as everyone else keeps describing it was magical. Guests were crying at the ceremony, point and grotto, looking at how beautiful everything looked - especially coming across the bridge at the grotto with the fairy lights & flower garlands. Everyone has told us "Best wedding we have ever been to". It was literally the best day of Josh & I's lives. 

Thank you all again!

Lucy & Josh

Hi guys,

Thank you so much for making our dreams come true on Saturday. My heart stopped (in a great way) when I saw the tables and the decorations. It was perfect.  

Your input and advice was just superb. Even when things fell through you gave me options and I was absolutely thrilled with the dedication you showed. A special thank you to Jade, you are just excellent!

I wish I could do it all again, thanks again!

To Vicki & Jade,

We are finally having some down time, although we are still on a high from our magical day!

We loved absolutely everything at the Sugar Wharf - Thank you! The food was spectacular and everyone loved the music. Everyone has commented on how beautiful the setting was, it was all just so divine and Matt and I could not be happier.

Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job, our wedding day was everything we could have ever dreamed for, a really magical day!

Annie thank you so much for being the greatest support a bride could have asked for! Your attention to detail was perfect.

Vicki & Byron, thank you for promising us our dream, and delivering (so successfully) our nightmare!

The whole day was nothing short of our dream wedding. Many of our friends have made comments like "It's like something out of a fairy-tale."

My flowers were amazing. Wynn understood exactly the look I was going for, and went above and beyond to achieve it! The hanging jars were absolutely perfect!

The food provided by Delphine was perfect! I have never seen our family and friends so quiet before!

Love Krissy & Brett McMurray

Alanna & Jim - Sugar Wharf/Niramaya

Thanks so much for all your hard work in creating the perfect wedding for us.

It was so great to see all our discussions come to life so well.

"...I was expecting it to be pretty good, but the end result blew my socks off

...And it was so kind of you to give us the bottle of french champagne.

We though everyone was fantastic, Nick was a legend, reef catering were fabulous and the food was divine.

The lanterns looked magical, every detail was there. We also adored the flowers!

Thank you for being so calm and positive throughout the process.

Hope to see yo again soon!

Kristen & Mitch - Sugar Wharf

As we turned the corner onto the wharf, we couldn't believe our eyes - it was like somebody had jumped into our heads, jumped out and created what they saw!

Truly spectacular venue, dressed and decorated to perfection.

All of our guests were stunned and though it was out of this world.

The food and service also matched the setting and there is not an ounce of disappointment for anything on the entire day - it was exactly how we imagined and dreamed! 

All of our guests commented on the amazing food and the service which we received throughout the reception - something that can make or break a wedding...

Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we certainly have to agree with them!

Thanks again!

Kristen & Mitch

Neil & Jo - Sugar Wharf/Rainforest Grotto 

Our wedding was (and this sounds like we're boasting, but we are....)


It has been a long time coming but you and your amazing team really pulled it off.

We would love the oppurtunity to recommend your business to others so please let me know where to send/post positive feedback so that other brides and grooms get to hear about our amazing experience.  I'm so glad we found you!

We really wanted to something unique and the attention to detail was way beyond our expectations. Cannot say thank you enough!

I hope that we will always be in touch and now, with your help, Port Douglas is ALWAYS going to be that place for us where we had our dream wedding.

Many thanks and much love,

Jo & Niel

Vicki and her staff were just amazing in helping to pull together our perfect tropical wedding!

The day was just perfect!

The great can do attitude is refreshing and I would highly recommend for any couple.

Melessa & Grant - Rex Smeal Park

Just want to say a very heartfelt thank you for your amazing contribution to making Meleesa & Grant's wedding such a success!

Ron and I were delighted to meet you and I only wish I could have had more time to have a decent chat....

We all had a wonderful time in Port Douglas and re already talking about a return trip! We are confident that at least we did contribute to getting the Port Douglas economy up and running again!

I will certainly miss our emails and will now have to find something else to occupy my mind...

Cheers, and I will definately be spreading your name, Corrine, to anyone who wants to plan a wedding or an event in Port Douglas.

Caroline & Donavon - Rex Smeal Park

Vicki, Byron and Jodi were absolutely brilliant, and their personal touch to every part of the wedding celebration made the few days in Port Douglas for us and our guests unforgettable. Given we had guests flying in from all over the world, we wanted to create a unique experience and show them why we love Far North Queensland so much!

"...not only did the MAD team coordinate the wedding day, but they also organised other activities for us including a sailing day on the reef."

No task too hard, and everything was done with brilliant precision.

The idea of having a bridal butler on the wedding day, to support us took the pressure off our friends and families to bother with 'the little things' was brilliant!

Thanks you so much to Vicki, Byron & Jodi for making our wedding celebration a once in a lifetime experience for us and our guests.

Sophie & Clint - Bali Hai

Our day was absolutely amazing and Bali Hai looked just fantastic! Definitely everything we dreamed of and more. So many people have told us that it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to so I guess that's a big win!

Jade, I've got to thank you personally as well because I feel like I just dumped a whole load of boxes on you on the morning of (Not ideal!) but you just knew to do with all of it and sorted it all out so I didn't have a thing to worry about - which was amazing!

Thanks again!

Sophie & Clint

Nikki & Scott - Sugar Wharf


The wedding was absolutely amazing! The food, the styling and the service was better than I could of ever imagined. The entire day went without hitch.

From my first moment in dealing with you both I knew you would meet my expectations, and let me tell you, after all these years working with brides and weddings they were rather high!

You both made our day one that we will remember and enjoy looking back on.

All our guests have only had positive things to say about the styling, food and service.

Thank you once again! Xxx

Nikki & Scott
