Craig + Arielle

Want a rainforest or garden wedding in Cairns? Craig + Arielle found the perfect venue with a ceremony surrounded by ferns and walking distance from the Cairns Botanical Gardens. Tucked away behind the Tanks Art Centre, Whitfield House caters for both the ceremony and reception.

The ceremony was held out on the front lawn of Whitfield House. It was the perfect backdrop and the guests remained in the shade. Anna Soltwedel created a personal ceremony for the bride + groom that had filled guests with laughs and happy tears. Once it was made official we grabbed the picnic basket and headed for the botanical gardens. We ate strawberries, hummus and cheese. Once the bridal party smashed a hummus bucket, I took Arielle + Craig around my favourite spots in the garden. The number 1 spot being the greenhouse. We chilled around hanging ferns, hid within the foliage and did a celebratory jump.
