Iconic Hayman Island infinity pool

Finding your forever person who makes your soul soar is undeniably wonderful and exciting. But, it’s even more exciting when they put a ring on it! Congrats! Being engaged means you’re one step closer to the wedding of your dreams! But, when you walk down the aisle with the person who completes you and vow to love one another unconditionally, you want the surroundings and mood to match your love’s magic and romance. That means planning, searching, sampling, and more planning to find the right services, dress, theme, and venue. When you picture your perfect wedding day, do you imagine an immaculate white sandy beach accompanied by beautiful palm trees? Is there an expansive view of glittering blue waters, lush tropical gardens, or perhaps gorgeous pools that sparkle in the sun and luxurious suites to relax in? If you answered yes, then you want a Hayman Island Wedding

About Hayman Island Wedding

Australia’s most iconic private island resort is full of impressive history. Let’s start in 1947 when aviation pioneer Reginald Ansett acquired Hayman Island and had plans to share this fantastic location. On July 4th, 1950, the Royal Hayman was completed and started serving guests for the first time. After years of increasing guest lists, natural disasters, rebuilds, and upgrades, in 2019, the Intercontinental Hayman Island Resorts reopened after a quick close. Since reopening in 2019, Hayman Island Resorts has received many awards for sustainability, environmental excellence, travelers’ choice, and many more.

While always catering to guests’ every need, they are also a top choice for hosting elegant and flawless events. Hayman Island’s extraordinary venues are beyond serene and gorgeous, making them perfect for wedding celebrations.
