Many brides dream of a romantic beach wedding, photos on the sand, waves breaking in the background, beautiful surrounds, which is why Burleigh Heads is such a popular wedding destination.
John Laws Park, atop Burleigh Headland, offers magical views across the ocean to the stunning vista of the Gold Coast skyline, simply one of the most amazing wedding ceremony locations in Australia. After you say your headland vows, Burleigh beach is perfect for gorgeous pictures on the sand.
North Burleigh is also very popular for wedding ceremonies with the appeal of a more serene coastal experience combined with the opportunity for dramatic photos against the craggy cliff face reaching down into the sand.
Four helpful tips for your gorgeous Burleigh Heads beach wedding:
• Add colour. To make your setup really pop, Sasha Souza of Sasha Souza Events suggests, “Choose colours that contrast the sand and the surf rather than blend in, like corals, greens and other vibrant tones.”
• Think carefully about your hairstyle. Consider an updo as the outdoors can be windy.
• You might like to also rethink a long veil or train.
• Consider your shoes. If you’re going to take photos on the beach, heels won’t work.
Following the ceremony there are three fabulous, beachfront venues within easy walking distance.
Burleigh Heads Mowbray Park Surf Club
