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!

How We Met

Tim & Diane had worked at the same place for over 25years. In 2001 we chatted after a Christmas work function. On Christmas day Tim came over with chocolates and his smile and won me over. We’ve been inseparable ever since.

The Proposal

Tim proposed on the 2nd last day of our 28 day European tour. It was beautiful and total shock all in one. The location was Hyde Park in London on 30th June 2015. Whilst I didn’t say yes, I didn’t say no!

Our last day in London having breakfast in Kensington Gardens, Tim asked can I try that again with my smile. He got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring, with tears in my eyes I said yes! It was truly beautiful.


After our beautiful wedding day we flew out to England spending a week with family, then we headed off on an 18 day tour “Romantic Britain & Ireland Tour.”


Relax & Enjoy.

It’s your day, don’t try and please everyone else.



When Tim & I decided to marry our choice was always to Elope. We were very fortunate to find “Elope To The Coast”.

From our first contact to our wedding day the whole process was stress free! Nothing was too much trouble, every email answered and everything taken care of.

The day itself was just beautiful, hair and makeup was done in my room, then all I had to do was get dressed. The “Elope Team” were brilliant, from hair and makeup and photography to the celebrant. The ceremony was beautiful; we just did not stop smiling. To top it off the photographer knew we were going overseas the next day so he uploaded all our photos the night of our wedding and had our images ready the following morning for us to collect. We were able to share our images of our special day with family overseas.

A Big Thank You To The Elope Team!

Love a Man in Uniform

Whether its Army, Navy, Airforce or Police any man in Uniform looks great. 

Especially at his own Wedding…! 

Thought I would share beautiful Jonte & Malcolm’s great day with you. Check out the change in Uniform too. What a gorgeous couple…!

September – A Month for Happy Brides

Grant & I could not have asked for a more perfect day. What you arranged for us was just beautiful. Renee was just adorable & we loved our hair & makeup. The ceremony was just amazing & the RSL looked after us beautifully.. You run a truly amazing & professional business. Love Mr & Mrs Pask


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!!!

I want it both – Garden & Beach Wedding

Every Bride wants to have a beach shot buts still wants the classic garden wedding… so why not have both…. here at the Gold Coast we have some fabulous gardens for your ceremony and still only be 5 minutes from the beach for those beach shots

Wedding Highs

What better way to see the Gold Coast…! Have a rooftop wedding. …!


 Both you and your guest can enjoy the views while celebrating your nuptuials with a drink or two and a few nibbles. Something you can’t do when you hold a beach wedding ( local law doesn’t allow it). 

This is a photo of our recent rooftop setting

Tears of Joy

We love the positive response we get from our Brides & Grooms 

” We love the photos, they brought tears to our eyes, tears of joy, beautiful moments captured that we will cherish for the rest of lives. xxx Thank you for helping us achieve our dream

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

“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.
