Testimonial from Mia

I highly recommend having a wedding organised through Elope to the Coast.
Firstly, it was such a stress free process, Monique was so attentive to all of our wishes and very proactive to provide adjusted quotes and various options.
We are from Victoria and could have paid much more money on a wedding that wouldn’t have been as good of quality.
Monique was a fantastic celebrant and we received lots of positive feedback from our guests. She went the extra step to make everything personalised and help us feel completely comfortable at the wedding, she also built a positive relationship with us both leading up to the wedding.
It was so convenient and once again “stress free” being able to travel to Queensland and have all details of our wedding organised for us such as:
The entire team from Elope to the Coast did a fantastic job, Amera is a very talented makeup artist and I was extremely happy with the makeup that she did for my bridesmaids and I (especially considering we did not do a trial), Renee is also a fantastic hairdresser, so many people complimented how nice all of the hairstyles looked in the wedding. Our florals were all absolutely stunning. The transport/ limousine was very well organised and flexible. The photographer and videographer both did a fantastic job. (We received compliments from people saying that they are the best wedding photos that they have ever seen and even had someone in Queensland tell us that Ray is one of the most talented photographers on the Gold Coast). All of the staff were very friendly and had positive vibes on the wedding day, making the day even more special.
I could not recommend Elope to the Coast more as they literally made our dream wedding come true.

Elopement from USA

Blake and Cristina travelled across the globe to marry on the Gold Coast. Two hours out from the wedding the skies opened up with showers, but cleared in time for our couple to arrive in style, in a cadillac. Their intimate ceremony was held at the Cascade Gardens, Broadbeach. It was a heartfelt ceremony with personal vows exchanged of their love and admiration for each other. Blake and Cristina got the best of both worlds, with a park wedding and a beach photo shoot. Our couple enjoyed a week of sight seeing, checking out Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to see our native kangaroos and koalas, and beautiful Gold Coast beaches. We wish Blake and Cristina a lifetime of happiness and hope they loved their visit to Australia.

November Beachside Wedding

Kassandra and Mark celebrated their nuptials with close family on a sunny, Gold Coast day. Their package included the celebrant, wedding decorations, photography, accommodation, hair and make-up, bouquets for Kassandra and her bridesmaid, Mark and his groomsmen, and a beautiful wedding cake!

Kassandra wrote, “What can I say? We got married on 23 November 2023 and Bernadette and her team have been a Godsend. We had such a stress free day. Bernadette was friendly and professional and makes sure we are fully satisfied with the services. The hair and makeup artists were wonderful, setting us at ease, and listen to you. I’m lucky, as being a hairdresser by trade, and know photos are great for stylist and makeup artist, as a reference.

Afterwards, we had a dinner booking at Tallebudgera Surf Lifesaving Club. When we had our cake, it was delicious and tasted fresh, with sugar flowers on top looking so life-like. Photography was great – the photographer listened to what we were wanting and had great ideas as well. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Thank you for all you did for us Bernadette and her great team.” Written by Kassandra and Mark Lovett

Let’s elope while we holiday – by Marcelle.

We were just planning a holiday and decided to get married. We came across Elope to the Coast – spoke to Bernadette and went ahead. They organised everything, and I mean everything for our wedding – we just had to arrive. It included our fabulous beach front accommodation, to setting the beach scene wedding we wanted. My hair and makeup both professionally done and these girls were fabulous!!! Bernadette was also our celebrant and helped customise our wedding “our way”, nothing was a problem. Also it was all videotaped professionally along with our photos. I had no clue where to start, they bought everything together, I can’t thank them enough!!! Paul and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!\

Stress free day for Crystal and Scott

Crystal and Scott chose the “Turtle Beach Resort Wedding Package” for their Elope to the Coast wedding. Their beach wedding was held at Miami Beach, with family and friends sharing their special day with them. Their daughters walked down the aisle before Crystal, which was really a beautiful sight to behold for Scott to see the three most precious ladies in the world walk towards him.

Crystal said, “Choosing Elope to the Coast for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! From our first contact with Bernadette, everything was easy. Bernadette answered all my questions and there was never a time where I felt like my questions and last-minute additions were too much.

The whole team on the day were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The hair and makeup team made me feel and look amazing, Bernadette, as our celebrant was engaging and bright and last, (but by no way least!) Ray, the photographer, kept as genuinely laughing and this shows in our photos.

I felt absolutely no pressure at all on the day and have never been so calm or relaxed. If you do not want the stress involved with planning a ‘traditional’ wedding, I guarantee you that choosing Elope to the Coast will deliver you a day you won’t forget!

Family Affair – with Kylie and Charles

“Bernadette, Ray and team, we honestly can not thank you enough for our amazing stress free day ♥️ the images are outstanding and we are so in love. Thank you thank you thank you.” From Kylie.

Kylie, Charles and their children drove from Tasmania for this special occasion. Their exchange of vows was live-streamed to family and friends in Tassie. The Gold Coast put on exceptional weather, and a beautiful and personal ceremony was held on the private rooftop area of the penthouse at Regency on the Beach. It was definitely a day to remember for all! Congratulations from Elope to the Coast to Kyle and Charles and your gorgeous family!

Stepping into Spring with a Beach Wedding

Where do I begin?
My partner and I decided we only wanted a small wedding, and started researching for elopement packages in the Gladstone area. We couldn’t find anything but one that kept popping up was Elope to the Gold Coast. It had everything we needed/ wanted and we decided, let’s do it. We had a “destination” wedding on the Gold Coast! Bernadette answered all of my annoying emails leading up, and being far away I had a lot of questions, because I didn’t know what anything looked like, where it was, I was nervous about hair and make up and without a trial wondering if it would look okay, and was sending Bernadette so many emails with questions. Every single time she reassured me. She was kind and understanding and the best person we could have put our trust into. We had a small wedding, with a few friends and family and Bernadette made it work. On our day it rained and even then everything was still perfect. The hair and make up ladies were wonderful. I showed them pictures and they took them to the next level. I felt incredible, honestly like a princess. We have just received our photos and Ray and his partner Simone have done an amazing job. We are absolutely awestruck with how they turned out. All of these people love what they do, and helped our day come together in amazing fashion. If you are considering Elope to the Gold Coast, do it. You absolutely will not regret it!

We did it again, Another Happy Bride

Our wedding day was fantastic! We are from Melbourne and everyone from elope to the coast were amazing, meeting all of our needs!!! They understood my son had severe autism and happily worked around him to make our day! The celebrant even read part of our ceremony with him that just made it absolutely perfect! When I had my meltdown  the team were so lovely and beautiful they listened and set my mind at ease! The photography and the videography were brilliant and I love our wedding video and pictures!!v

I can’t thank Elope to the coast enough for such an amazing wedding and experience and I can’t recommend them highly enough!!!! When we renew our vows we will defiantly be going through Elope the coast again! Thank you everyone for an amazing wedding!!!!

I can honestly say I don’t think you guys need to improve on anything. I loved the whole day and I would do it again and again and again!! Thank you again for the amazing ceremony! And for putting up with me and my fussiness! (And severe bridezilla moments!) you guys are amazing!!!
