An Enchanting Gold Coast Elopement For Your Wedding Day


As a Marriage Celebrant on the Gold Coast, I specialize in small and beautiful weddings on the stunning beaches. It’s a popular choice for couples who want a private and romantic ceremony. The golden sands and the rhythmic sound of the waves create a picturesque backdrop for these special moments, as do the incredible Hinterland settings. Options abound….but what type of backdrop will work for your special day?

Eloping weddings on the beach offer a romantic and intimate setting with picturesque backdrops and the soothing sound of waves. Pros include privacy, affordability, and the availability of budget-friendly packages. However, cons may include unpredictable weather conditions and potential crowds at popular beach locations.

If you are dreaming of a beach elopement wedding, the Gold Coast has several breathtaking spots. Currumbin Beach with its iconic Elephant Rock, North Burleigh Beach, and The Spit-Main Beach are just a few of the popular choices.

Adding to the beach option is the availability of affordable elope to the coast wedding packages at various Gold Coast Surf Life Saving clubs. Many clubs offer affordable packages that include the venue and catering services, in response to the demand for budget-friendly options. Couples can pick from catered events or food trucks for a more relaxed and personalized experience.

Froggy’s Beach on the southern end of the Gold Coast adds a touch of seclusion to the list. The options are diverse, catering to different preferences and styles. In addition to these stunning locations, there’s the Glass and Marble Chapel at Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove.

Eloping at a bush or hinterland setting provides a unique and enchanting atmosphere surrounded by nature. Pros include a serene and secluded environment, stunning landscapes, and the opportunity for a more personalized experience. However, cons may include limited accessibility and the need for additional transportation arrangements.

Some examples include Austinvilla Estate, Cowbell Creek, Kwila Lodge, and The Acre – Boomerang Farm, and the exquisite Valley Estate in Currumbin Valley. These venues provide unique, stunning and intimate experiences for couples who want to get married on the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast wedding venues are changing to host smaller weddings due to economic challenges and higher interest rates. The aim is to ensure that couples can still have the wedding they always dreamed of without breaking the bank.
