– Speeches are the most common element to cause delays in reception timing, be realistic and discuss the length of speeches in detail with the people who will be making them. Get them to practice their speech and actually time themselves, so you know its accurate.
– If you think speakers will be nervous, it’s worth considering placing speeches before your meals, so they can get them over, then relax and enjoy the night.
– What time will you be booking your photographer/videographer to arrive/leave, and which elements of your event do you want to be covered during that time?
– What time your photo tour concludes, and what time you would like to arrive at your Reception (I.e. would you like a break in-between, or will you go straight from photos to Reception)?
– What time will you have your entertainers start/finish, will you require a source for music before and/or after this time, and how will this affect the mood of the evening?
– Who would you like to be the decision maker on the night, with regards to increasing bar tabs or dealing with anything unexpected? We recommend having a close family member or friend in charge who you trust to make these decisions for you. It can of course be yourselves, but it’s more ideal to free yourself of any unnecessary logistics so you can truly enjoy the night.
– You need to choose a trustworthy and confident MC. Someone who’s comfortable with public speaking, handy for a few jokes, and knows you both. At the following link we have some tips and guidance for selecting your MC, as well as assistance for your MC when planning the night www.hamiltonislandweddings.com/need-to-know/planning-advice/mc-tips-guidance/
– Would you like your bridal party arrival to be officially announced by your MC?
– In what order will your bridal party arrive into the room (Usually it’s the same order as the Ceremony procession)?
– How would you like to be announced? Mr and Mrs… (Taking into consideration if Bride will be taking on Groom’s surname).
– Would you prefer more time for food service or dancing, or a balanced mix of both?
Below is a list of items you may choose to include in your timing schedule. Feel free to add more if you need to.
- Copy & Paste this list in an email, then add any additional and delete any not relevant to your event.

We got married on Hamilton Island in May 2017, 8 weeks after Cyclone Debbie tore through the Island. The team on the island are to be congratulated for their efforts over the last 8 weeks because this in no way affected our wedding day. The team at HIW are fantastic and the Planners really do think of everything. Their professionalism is outstanding and they really do make the whole process so easy. We are so lucky to have been able to get married in such a beautiful part of the world and on such a gorgeous day. It really was a day that we will never forget!
Hamilton Island weddings provide a unique and professional service. A relationship is built with your Planner and Celebrant that eases any and all nerves you might possibly feel. I cannot thank you enough for being the beautiful personalities you are and thank you for being apart of our special day.
Even though the weather didn’t quite turn it on for us, we had an amazing day. Dinner at the Bommie Restaurant was a highlight, the food was amazing!
We got married on Hamilton Island on the 2nd of May 2017. Five weeks after cyclone Debbie had struck with such ferocity. The people of Hamilton Island need to be congratulated for continuing to work tirelessly to make sure everyone’s wedding days went ahead. To our HIW Planner and her amazing professionalism during the whole process, we can’t thank you enough. It was such a special day that went off without a hitch and the weather was perfect. Thank You Hamilton Island, you’re our special piece of paradise.
We are so thrilled to have spent our Wedding on Hamilton Island. The big day and night went absolutely perfectly and we would not change a thing.

So happy with the highlights video – It captured Anthony, my daughters and I so well with a personal edge. We had so much fun doing it and that showed in the video.

I found [the booking process] really easy and stress-free, there was plenty of information and everyone I spoke to from HIW was really helpful and lovely. The website had loads of information regarding all aspects of the wedding, and I loved that it was all in once place… I would recommend Hamilton Island to any of my friends looking for a wedding location.

Thank you, you’re simply the best.
