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!

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!

Happy Happy Bride

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!!!

Rainy Days in June

Jessica & Jamie were married on the 12th June, this year.
Jessica  took time out while on her honeymoon to send us this message.
“Thank you everyone from elope to the coast Jamie and I couldn’t be more ecstatic with how everything turned out it was everything I could have imagined you all did an amazing job.”

Jessica we loved making your day special,  and meeting all your friends and family. They do say rain on a wedding day brings you luck. Everyone at Elope  wishes you the very best luck for the future.

Jessica took advantage of booking accommodation with Elope, so when the heavens opened and with no break in the rain due, we were able to offer her an indoor location for her ceremony and photo shoot at no extra cost.

With a small break in the rain, we were able to go outside and release the butterflies  and grab a few shots outside.

Jessica opted not to get beach photos, keeping in mind after such heavy rain her beautiful lace dress would simply be clogged full of wet soggy sand. With a reception still to come, we took some photo’s from the balcony of their apartment. I’m glad she didn’t get the beach photo’s as I loved Jessica’s dress , I would hate to see it ruined. it was so elegant and tradition  with all its little detailing. But still so on trend…
