I am a born and bred Cairns girl currently living in Dubai. Moving here wasn't a part of my master plan (why would I want to leave paradise?!), however I met a handsome British fellow on a holiday there back in 2007 on my way to Turkey with my best friend. Sparks flew, he visited me in Cairns, and then I decided to pack my bags, quit my job, sell my car, rent out my flat and move over to Dubai to be with him! Things obviously turned out well as Ian proposed to me in December 2008! (right in front of the Burj -worlds tallest tower... how very romantic!)
We plan to save as much money as we can here in Dubai and move back to Cairns in a few years. As most of my family and friends are in Cairns, this is where we decided to get married (as his friends and family and our Dubai friends are dying for an excuse to visit Australia!)
We have set a date of 2nd October 2010. 2/10/2010 has a nice ring to it, and it is close to our anniversary. It seems so far away but it gives me extra time to plan a wedding from the other side of the world!
I am looking forward to hearing ideas and stories from other Cairns bride to be's as of course this is all a new experience and its hard to figure out where to start!
At this point am toying with the idea of a Palm Cove Wedding or a Port Douglas wedding, both my favourite places in FNQ. Has anyone any experiences with Angsana or Sebel Reef House in Palm Cove?
I look forward to any tips and recommendations!
