Gretchen & Gerald's Wedding - Port Douglas

Port Douglas was the perfect end to our trip. We had a fantastic week with everyone and generally eating and drinking far too much!  It was great to see friends over from London and a lot of Uni friends that we hadn't seen for years.  Gerald and Gretchen were very organized for their wedding so we were able to see a lot of them too.

Port Douglas is a lovely small beach community. There are lots of fantastic restaurants, a nice wide beach and some great outdoors activities near by.  We managed to avoid spiders whilst up in the Dainstree Rainforest area but had fun taking photos of a black snake with orange stripes, that we only discovered later was 'dangerous and highly venomous'!   We had a fantastic 'breakfast with the birds' at the local wildlife sanctuary, where Jamie also got to see koalas and kangaroos for the first time. The guys had a second stag do for Gerald (he was really happy to be wearing a dress again!) whilst the girls drank bubbly for the afternoon and decided to try our hand at cane toad racing!

The wedding was gorgeous.  It was held at a cute little church with a stunning view of the beach. The reception was at a luxurious golf club.  The evening flew by and we soon found ourselves back at the local pub.  The perfect end to the evening was finding the local baker down a back ally starting his days work. He didn't seem fazed by a bride and groom (still in full wedding attire) buying steak and cheese pies at 3am in the morning!
