If you’re planning on getting hitched in the future, the Gold Coast is certainly a good place to do so. With many a delightful location on offer, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to your big day.
From the beach to the hinterland, or the hinterland with views of the beach, the Coast is your oyster.
Here’s a few we think might tickle your fancy, probably get in quite early though because they seem to tickle everyone’s fancy.
There aren’t enough words in the world to describe the magic of Mavis’s Kitchen. Technically it’s in northern NSW but that’s never stopped us before. There are mountain views for days, from the hinterland to Mt Warning and food direct from the organic garden and the perfect spot to marry your love. It’s an intimate space but if stunning outdoor scenery is your thing, this should be your number one choice.
Where: 64 Mount Warning Road, Uki
Another hinterland gem, Heritage Wines is, you guessed it a wedding venue at a winery and those are the perfect combination if you ask us. The rustic style venue boasts some absolutely magical views and there’s a separate little section for the actual getting married part. Guests can mingle on the greenest lawn in the world whilst enjoying wines from their cellar door. The food is a delight there too.
Where: Bartle Road, Tamborine Mountain
Greenery abounds at Summergrove Estate, making it the perfect place for a spectacular wedding day no one will ever forget. Having won many awards in the past few years, it’s no wonder this place is much-loved by everyone who has ever laid eyes on it. Found in the hinterland, they boast a little weatherboard chapel, and the option of a reception either indoors or outside under the stars.
Where: 363 Carool Road, Carool
Getting hitched in a 100 year old barn seems like a good time. Even better when it’s surrounded by lush green lawns, big old trees and an actual rainforest chapel. You’ll no doubt spy a local wallaby or two and with the babbling Mudgeeraba Creek running through the property, what’s not to love. We highly recommend including lawn games on the agenda and a wheelbarrow full of beverages to set the mood. Plus, its just 10 minutes from Robina Town Centre.
Where: 55 Johns Road, Gold Coast
Binna Burra Lodge
This heritage-listed lodge has offered an immersive nature experience since the 1930s. It’s the perfect background for your love-filled day with breathtaking views of the Coast and Numinbah Valley. There are a variety of catering options on offer and a Wedding Coordinator on site to ensure the day is perfect. It’s a truly magical experience high up in the trees and well worth a visit even if a wedding is in the very far away future.
Where: Binna Burra Road, Beechmont
Palm Meadows Golf Course
Perhaps the prettiest golf course on the Coast, Palm Meadows is quite the spot to gather your friends and family to celebrate your big day. A ceremony overlooking the golf course and waterways followed by dancing and eats at Lakeview Restaurant, complete with a cute little terrace area, is pure perfection. Best of all its central to the Gold Coast but tranquil and private at the same time.
Where: Palm Meadows Drive, Carrara
Crystal Blue Yacht Cruises
If an intimate wedding on the water is more your style, why not gather the gang and go all out on a Crystal Blue yacht. It’s quite the romantic experience to be cruising along with the sun setting in the distance, a glass of champagne in hand having just wed your beloved (or so we hear). And imagine the incredible photos you’ll get! Definitely get on board with this idea for something quite unique but also very lovely.
Where: Marina Mirage, 74 Sea World Drive, Main Beach
