  • What do you love most about what you do? The first wedding we hosted at Lure will always stay special. The bride sent on a thank you card afterwards and wrote “You made my dream (wedding) come true”. It was certainly the best compliment I could receive.
  • The most romantic location in Australia is... The Whitsundays obviously!
  • What is your best advice to couples planning their wedding? When planning a destination wedding consider the before and after. Perhaps arrange a pre-wedding dinner for all the guests to get to know each other, or a fun activity for the day after the wedding, since everyone will be relaxed and in the holiday mood.
  • What is your advice for a healthy, long lasting relationship? Don't forget to talk to each other - communication is the key!
