What a month it has been with a dozen wedding celebrations in just one weekend!
From secret marriage proposals at Seary’s Creek, to ceremonies on the beach and photoshoots with our unique beach and bush background, the town has been overflowing with loving couples and their families.
The emotions have been visible and it is wonderful to see businesses in town get a piece of the love cake: from accommodation, cleaners, cafes and restaurants, to hairdressers, shops and florists.
“Elisa and I share the vision to build Rainbow Beach as a Wedding Destination,” said local Chef Restaurateur Sean Seul.
“Our first business, Rainbow Beach Weddings, was born to also support the local community’s economic development and create a network with 90% of existing businesses in the area.”
Rainbow Beach is becoming more popular with couples who want to escape the wedding stress and have a relaxed ceremony on the beach.
Covid has definitely changed the way to celebrate weddings. We all had a few rough months due to the majority of the 2020 weddings being either cancelled or postponed.
Moving forward, couples are keen to revive their dream wedding. “The travel restrictions are stopping Queenslanders from escaping overseas and instead they are looking around.
“Our Coast is perfect for couples who prefer a smaller, more intimate ceremony and celebration however we can certainly host larger events – the sky’s the limit”.
Even as we look forward to a post-Covid era, social events such as weddings will still proceed with Covid-safe protocols in place.
Social distancing measures will eventually fade, but the memories made in Rainbow Beach will remain forever.
