A Wedding Ceremony in Port Douglas

Hello my name is Stephanie Milne and I am a Port Douglas Marriage Celebrant and Civil Partnership Notary. I am very lucky to live and work in Port Douglas, helping couples to create their perfect wedding memory in and around the Port Douglas Region and the Great Barrier Reef.

A tropical wedding is always a truly memorable event. Beautiful Port Douglas is located just north of Cairns, in Far North Queensland. Port Douglas and it's surrounding areas are filled with amazing locations, it is no suprise that it is such a popular wedding choice for visitors from Australia and all over the world.

Whether you are planning an intimate elopement or an extravagant wedding involving all your family and friends, Port Douglas has a location to suit you. From the beautiful Daintree Rainforest and spectacular 4 Mile Beach to St Mary's by The Sea Chapel, beautiful private houses and luxury resorts; there are an endless selection of locations for your special day.

Whichever your choice may be, I can be there to assist in whatever way I possibly can. The tropics can be an unpredictable place for a wedding, so it is important to choose a reliable and flexible celebrant, someone who can assist in a practical manner should the need arise. I only perform one ceremony per day, which allows me to be more flexible and devote as much time as required to each couple.

I would love to assist you to create your perfect ceremony, it is such a privilege to be a part of such an important event. Your ceremony should be an individual reflection of you and your relationship, a personal moment you will remember always. I would love to write a unique ceremony for you, tailoring it to your own special personalities and requirements.


Boundless Goodwill (Anon, Buddhist Scriptures 2nd Century AD)

This is what should be done by the man and the woman who are wise, who seek the good, and who know the meaning of the place of peace.

Let them be fervent, upright and sincere, without conceit of self, easily contented and joyous, free of cares; let them not be submerged by the things of the world; let them not take upon themselves the burden of worldly goods; let their senses be controlled; let them be wise but not puffed up, and let them not desire great possessions, even for their families. Let them do nothing that is mean or that the wise would reprove .......

Even as a mother watches over and protects her child, her only child, so with a boundless mind, should one cherish all living things, radiating friendliness over the entire world, above and below and all around without limit. So let them cultivate a boundless goodwill toward the entire world, unlimited, free from ill will or enmity.

Standing or walking, sitting or lying down, during all their waking hours, let them establish this mindfulness of goodwill, which is the highest state.
