'The absolute best day of our entire lives! The whole experience from the beginning of planning our day was effortless and Freedom Shores/Sophie and their team treated us no less than absolute superstars along with all our guests. The grounds were immaculate and the view from every aspect of the resort is postcard perfect. I literally cannot fault a single thing through the entire process. Bring on our vowel renewal so we can do it all over again! Love The Orgills' – Elle

'We couldn't have asked for a better spot to have our wedding. Freedom Shores has it all we didn't have to leave the venue the entire weekend of our wedding as everyone came to us. The accommodation was amazing and the hotel staff went above and beyond to make us and our guests feel welcome and looked after. Bonus of having our wedding at freedom shores is having the ceremony and reception all in the one spot. Everything was looked after with us and freedom shores did all of the liaising with the suppliers. We have the most stress free amazing, well-organized wedding. Cannot recommend freedom shores enough for your entire wedding experience' – Erin

From start to finish they ensured everything was as easy as can be and helped us pull off the wedding of our dreams. Highly recommend for anyone getting married in the Whitsundays, give your guests the perfect wedding and holiday combined!' – Gabrielle

'We wanted an outdoor venue that still had a formal vibe. We also wanted a venue that we could have both the reception and ceremony at not only for the convenience but so ourselves and guests could sit back and relax without having to travel between venues. Freedom Shores was the perfect fit for this as they had many ceremony and reception locations for us to choose from, all with stunning backdrops and locations' – Jo
