One of the advantages of being based in the vibrant Abell Point Marina precinct is the range of stunning locations, which can be used for a photo shoot. Not only is the venue itself a perfect backdrop, but we encourage all our couples to take an hour away from their guests, explore the marina and be artistic with their wedding professional shoot or your candid honeymoon photos.

Here are some of our photography hotspots in the Whitsundays for your wedding and honeymoon pics:

Firstly, hire a boat for a few hours, either take the bridal party our for drinks and nibbles before the reception or just take yourselves and enjoy a quite moment of reflection and some amazing scenery backdrops. Hiring a boat and having a float is the perfect way to unwind on your honeymoon after the big day too.

Speak to your wedding coordinator and arrange to explore the docks. Nestle between stunning yachts and gleaming hulls to create the perfect backdrop. Choose the right time of day and as the sunsets you will have a backdrop of pink and orange hues as the Whitsunday skies mark the next stage of your wedding day celebrations. Use these tips also for your honeymoon – while you might not have a professional photographer on hand, you’ll still be able to snap some awesome shots for your honeymoon album by using these photography tips. Lighting is everything!

Explore the marina precinct, from the Abell Point Parkway to the adjacent Shingley Beach, both grassed areas make for a stunning contrast to the aqua of the Whitsunday waters.

Finally, be experimental and choose a location or a shot which perfectly captures your relationship. Some wedding shoots are so staged, that the personalities don’t get chance to shine through. If you choose the right photographer they will certainly bring out the best in you both and make you comfortable enough to be yourselves.

Whilst many people place their wedding photos in an album and then only get the album out once a year on their anniversary, those who try something a little different are far more likely to hang that photo of the big day in the living room and be constantly reminded of their special day.
