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!!!

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… 

Adam & Yusi Story

Adam & Yusi Story

“We first met when Yusi started working where I worked. After getting to know each other we decided to start seeing each other outside of work and things went from there.

Just over a year after we started going out, we were getting ready to go out to dinner and I suggested she wear some bling. When she asked what, I showed her the engagement ring!

For our wedding, we wanted to keep it small but we still found ourselves overwhelmed by everything we would have to organise. That’s when Yusi found Elope to the Coast. A small wedding in Queensland with everything organised for us was exactly what we wanted.

Everything about our wedding was perfect. We loved the apartment we stayed in, Yusi’s makeup artist did a wonderful job, the ceremony was great, Ray took some amazing photos and we couldn’t be happier with how Elope to the Coast organised everything, answered our questions, made us feel at ease when we were nervous and even helped us out with a few things after the wedding. Even the weather was great!

We stayed in Queensland for a week after the wedding and it was the best week of our lives. In large part that was due to the wedding being so good. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elope to the Coast to anyone.

Our tip: On the day of the wedding, don’t stress out over the little details. Just go with the flow and enjoy the day. Also, listen to the team at Elope  – they’ve  done this before!”

Again,  thanks again for everything.

Perfect Couple, Perfect Wedding

I just wanted to send in a huge thank you for making our wedding everything we wanted and more! The ceremony was absolutely perfect.
The whole experience from our first meeting, right up to our wedding day was fantastic. I didn’t have to worry about anything as everything was covered and I could relax right up to the day. Nothing was too much for you and my million questions were always answered. We didn’t want the big wedding, we wanted a  small nice wedding and we got exactly that and much more.
Thank you for recommending Alley’s restaurant the food was amazing and staff were brilliant! 
Renee, your hair and makeup artist was brilliant, she done such a fantastic job!
Ray and Simon were absolutely fantastic! They liked to have a laugh, which helped me relax before the ceremony.
Our celebrant was lovely, she came and met with us the day before and made us both feel much better about how the ceremony would run.
Everything ran perfectly on the day.
Steve and I just want to thank the Elope to the Coast team again for everything. I will be recommending you to all my family and friends.
Thank you again

Testimonial from Cassie and John

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Elope to the Coast for organising the most perfect wedding day for us. Everything was just as I pictured it would be. I could not have asked for anything more.  The Beauty Team did such an amazing job with all our hair and make up.
The cake was delicious and the flowers were beautiful.  
Again thank you so much for everything.
