Top Beaches on the Gold Coast for Your Dream Wedding
For a couple who’s looking to speak their vows in a place of unmatched beauty, the Gold Coast is truly one of the most spectacular options. Not only does it look like it was made for a fairytale wedding, but the great variety of venues offered can suit almost any taste. From grandiose glamour to sweet romance, you can create the perfect event that will make your wedding gorgeous and memorable. To help you out, here’s a list of some of the most beautiful Top Beaches that you should consider.
Main Beach is situated at the northern end of the Gold Coast, surrounded by endless beaches and hidden parks. It is a great ceremony choose for destination weddings as there as many close resorts and hotels nearby. With the skyline of Surfers Paradise in the distance, Main Beach has been a favourite contender for many brides to be!
Just south of Burleigh Point, this is an amazing estuary ceremony location with the National park as your backdrop. A very sweet spot for lovers to pick because it’s a little more private than the Tallebudgera beach, but still features the cool, azure waters and the warm yellow sand. If you are after that paradise getaway feel, look no further than this charming location.
How could you not want to marry on a beach with such a cute name? The southernmost point of the Gold Coast, this charming beach is between Snapper Rocks and Point Dagger, and it’s surrounded by colourful rocks that provide a lovely contrast to its pale sand. The surrounding hills protect it from the wind, so you can make sure that your wedding party will have a comfortable place to enjoy. The whole beach is really gorgeous, so for those who are looking for stunning photographs and want a beautiful backdrop, this is a great choice. It also helps that there’s a great wooden boardwalk from the top of the hill that the bride can use to make her dramatic entrance.
Rainbow Bay Beach
Oh, the turquoise waters and the soft, light sand! A spectacular location that’s right next to Froggy Beach, it’s so full of vibrant colours and gorgeous views that you won’t be able to help but fall in love. The sparkling blue ocean and the cliffs that surround the beach are very scenic, and you can get creative and match your wedding invitations to the venue if you like. Give your guests a hint of what’s to come by sending them an invite that will remind them of the breezy beach air and warm sand of Rainbow Bay and they’ll be even more excited about the event. Gold Coast beaches are also perfect for a marquee wedding, and there’s nothing like a big, beautiful marquee to make all the photos look fun and memorable.
Ok, so this isn’t a beach, but Sanctuary Cove overlooks a charming little harbour and the marina, and it definitely offers the chance for a very unique wedding. The view will offer you a chance to choose a nautical theme for the event, and there are many restaurants, cafes, and other interesting places where you can hold the reception for your guests.
We’ve picked only a few, but the Gold Coast is full of spectacular beaches that will all give you a chance to organize a great wedding. Pick something that calls out to you and enjoy your dreamy ceremony!
