Whitsunday wedding

Queensland couple Steve Zaplin and Anita Lennox slipped away from tradition to exchange their wedding vows at Shute Harbour and honeymoon aboard a luxury WRAY yacht. We were thrilled to help them bring it all together.

Steve and Anita Zaplin of Mango Hill, Queensland, keep reliving the day in August when their wedding dreams came true. After a private ceremony on the shores of Shute Harbour, they spent their honeymoon aboard the impressive Summer Breeze, a Beneteau 34 Oceanis monohull yacht.

"We’ve not stopped talking about WRAY since our special day. We've even set up a holiday fund with another couple to come back next year," Anita said.

To celebrate their nuptials, the adventure-loving couple treated themselves to an Air Whitsunday seaplane flight over the Whitsunday islands and the Great Barrier Reef, including Shute Harbour, the Molle Group of Islands, Whitsunday Passage, Hayman, Daydream, Hook and Whitsunday islands, Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet and romantic Heart Reef. During their four-night charter, they also berthed overnight at Hamilton Island marina.

"The seaplane flight was nuts! We would definitely recommend that to anyone - especially being picked up from the yacht. Very James Bondish!" Anita said.

"We actually sailed back to WRAY with a whale swimming alongside our vessel - such majestic creatures."

WRAY offers two Sunset Sail Wedding Packages (ceremony only, or ceremony with photography) and a Honeymoon Heaven Package which is a unique and memorable option for ocean-loving romantics.  We can also take care of gourmet provisioning for your special day and organise excursions to explore our beautiful surrounds. The Zaplins combined a Sunset Sail Wedding Package (with celebrant and photographer) with a Honeymoon Heaven Package.
