As you step from your dinghy into the blissful seclusion of Wilson Island, you can’t imagine a more divine destination for your wedding.

Just 40 minutes from Heron Island, this tiny coral cay right on the Great Barrier Reef offers designer-inspired tented accommodation for just six couples, each with a magnificent private ocean view.

Days are filled snorkelling and exploring the island, or just lazing in a hammock. As the sun melts into the horizon, your hosts drop by with a bottle of bubbly and canapés, followed by a resplendent gourmet feast. At Wilson, you and your guests are treated like barefoot royalty.


Your Celebrant

Once you have confirmed your wedding date with the Wedding Coordinator, they will then confirm a marriage celebrant who will conduct the ceremony. You are of course able to choose your own celebrant, should you wish to do so. The marriage celebrant will discuss with you the legal procedures, as well as the ceremony content.

  • Birth Certificate
