Rainbow Beach, Queensland

The Fraser Island is famous for being the largest sand island in the world and is truly magnificent. Rainbow beach has a dramatic feel to it, due to sandy cliff like formations and bold sand colours. Lovebirds can enjoy a nearby relaxation retreat for a perfect and calming post wedding night.
Reggae Beach, Jamaica
With endless miles of Jamaica’s golden sands, you might settle for the tropical sounds of Reggae Beach. You won’t be the only ones moving to the entertainment, with the palms grooving on the water’s edge, and sensational cliffs on each side, giving a cozy, laid-back atmosphere to the entire event. Once everyone is spiced up on jerk chicken, they can cool off with a dip in the clearest, bluest liquid in the Caribbean.

Positano Beach, Italy
When the setting for your wedding are brightly colored houses surrounding the cliffs, fragrant citrus groves, and century-old church towers, you can be sure Italy’s Amalfi Coast is an ideal destination to get hitched. Although, Positano’s main beach is a tourist frenzy, nearby secluded beaches offer the ideal place for your ceremony. With all the pizazz in the technicolored background, the acoustic cliffs will hug your small beach wedding, and soothe your pre-wedding jitters with the amplified sound of the sea.
