Whether your wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony is relaxed, dreamy and simple or stylish and smart you will be spoiled for choice on the Gold Coast and in northern NSW. Here are Rosemary’s top picks:
There are many superb beaches which are very popular for Gold Coast weddings including Surfers Paradise, Main Beach, Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Mermaid Beach, Miami, Currumbin, Snapper Rocks, Duranbah or D Bar, Coolangatta and Rainbow Bay.
Popular parks for your wedding, exchange of marriage vows or commitment ceremony on Queensland’s Gold Coast include the Broadwater Parklands in Southport, Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens at Benowa, Cascade Gardens in Broadbeach, Pat Fagan Park and Point Danger Park both in Coolangatta and John Laws Park in Burleigh Heads. There are more amazing Gold Coast wedding locations on the Gold Coast City website.
Don’t forget the Gold Coast Hinterland, located west of the Gold Coast with its breathtaking scenery and Gold Coast skyline views, includes Mudgeeraba, Tallai and Mt Tamborine and the World Heritage listed Springbrook National Park home to lush Gondwana Rainforests.
In northern NSW a water backdrop offers stunning spots for your wedding venue. These include Tweed Heads, Tweed Beaches (Fingal Head, Kingscliff, Salt, Casuarina, Cabarita and Hastings Point). Additionally if you are looking for accommodation for you and/or friends and family you can’t go pass the beautiful La Maison Pacifique at Casuarina. As it is so close to where I live I can easily meet you there for any last moment updates or questions.
Perfect and very popular locations for your wedding or commitment ceremony are Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads including Belongil Beach and Wategos, Broken Head and Lennox Head. Byron’s beaches are like a dream come true, which sounds like a cliché until you experience them but they really are among the best in Australia and Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads locals are friendly and laid back.
Behind the golden beaches is the breathtaking hinterland with beautiful scenery and yet still be close to Byron Bay. From privately owned stylish homesteads to boutique country retreats a Byron Bay wedding could be just what you are looking for.
