There are few places in the world that can lay claim to having the most extravagant marriage ceremonies. On the Gold Coast, the couples celebrate their weddings in the sand, under blue skies and a warm tropical sun. While many of the smaller towns on the Gold Coast have their own unique wedding ceremonies traditions, the true “Gold Coast” wedding is celebrated in these large metropolitan locations. Most of the larger cities in the state (including Toowong, Mermaid Beach, Maroochyck, Broad Beach, Tallebudgera and Surfers Paradise) have their own unique styles of weddings, from formal luncheons in the hotels and gardens to informal open-air receptions in the pavements of the beach. The Gold Coast has a reputation for having some of the wildest weddings anywhere, with anything from balloon bridal bouquets to beachside weddings being held on the public beaches.
Wedding Ceremony Location Selection
With its high population concentration in the inner regions of the coastal region, it’s not surprising that there are many different cultures represented among the various wedding guests at these public celebrations. The wedding guests range from families of six, who typically bring their children along as partners in marriage, to older couples who are newlyweds themselves. Some of the marriage ceremonies are quite traditional, while others are more experimental in nature. For instance, some of the couples who wed in the Gold Coast hotels have chosen to exchange “elsimony”, which is the amount paid in compensation for an injury sustained in the course of a marriage. The bride might also exchange thirteen months’ salary as part of the deal; or a cow or two, which could represent the bride’s share in raising the children in her household when she settles down and takes up a family of her own.
One of the most popular new school wedding locations in the Gold Coast area is the luxury spa resort of Maroochydore, which is only about 15 minutes from the Gold Coast airport. Here, wedding couples can indulge in some of the best spa services, such as Swedish massage, and indulge in all of the other amenities that Gold Coast resorts offer, including bridal massage and the opportunity to indulge in full-service wedding ceremonies with a full service wedding planner at your disposal. Whether you choose to have your wedding at Maroochydore or not is entirely up to you. The important thing is that you get everything that you want out of your marriage ceremony, and that’s exactly what you can expect from Maroochydore.
