We are having a flashback Friday all the way back to the 15th of September 2006 when Carrie & her husband Peter were married at our beach weddings destination!
Since having one of the most special days in their life nine years ago they have had two beautiful little girls & a perfect life to show for it.
Here is what they think of our beach weddings destination & their life now…
“We were married on the 15th September 2006. It was the most amazing day Many still says it is by far the best wedding they have been to. We found it after wanting something a bit different. We wanted our guests to have an experience, not just rock up somewhere for ceremony, then head to a hotel/golf club etc. We wanted private and exclusive destination that our guests wouldn’t have to drive or change places or be bored with a big break between. We had lots of people from NSW so we hired a bus and picked everyone up along the highway from Palm Beach all the way to the Marina. Well we now live back in NSW and have 2 little girls. Our Lily is 4 & Mali is 2 next month. We still enjoy looking back at our pics & what a wonderful day it was. We are both very relaxed & easy going people so for us it was perfect :)”
All of the team at An Island Hideaway are so grateful that we could make their day so special for Carrie & Peter! It is so wonderful to still receive so much positive feedback after nine years! We are so extremely happy for the both of you and we can tell how content you are with the life you have made as a family. We wish you all of the love and happiness in the world…

The team at An Island Hideaway were getting our Gold Coast Reception Venue ready for the most important day in Tracy and Bart’s life on Friday 17th October 2014.
An Island Hideaway truly is the Gold Coast’s best kept secret & definitely offers & specialises in delivering weddings with a difference.
The wonderful guests of Tracy & Bart’s wedding were relaxing at Fisherman’s Wharf where we met them and the excited groom. It wasn’t long before we were gathering boarding the guest vessel, Spirit of Gold Coast for their trip up the calm Broadwater to our Gold Coast Wedding Reception Venue. While the groom and guests were en route, Tracy was already at An Island Hideaway getting ready for the moment she had been waiting for!
Everyone seemed very excited & ready for their adventure ahead!
It was time for the formalities to begin & with that we had our recommended celebrant, Gary Taylor, waiting at the end of our beach side chapel with Bart for Tracy to take her first steps to a married life! Tracy & Bart stood in front of their wonderful family & committed themselves to each other for life!
Our Gold Coast Wedding Reception Venue was filled with laughter and joy as the party started to take place. Our lovely room was decorated with a beach theme which included sand that was scattered down bamboo table runners with perfectly positioned tea light candles and vases embellished with starfish and pearls. It was a flawless wedding for a flawless couple.
Our gorgeous recommended photographer Diana Wakeham was there to capture every moment of the day!
Congratulations to the newlyweds Tracy & Bart!

The wonderful wedding of Sian & Paul at An Island Hideaway on the 30th of August 2014!
This was such a mystical & romantic winter’s day at our Wedding Venues Gold Coast destination, for the commitment of Sian & Paul!
Sian was dressed in the most elegant & perfectly tailored white dress with lace & crystals embroidered from head to toe! Sian absolutely took our breath away… I can’t even begin to imagine what Paul was thinking when he saw her for the first time!
Before Sian took the first steps to becoming a married woman it was time for her closest friends & beautiful bridesmaids to walk down the aisle. They were dressed in striking Jade coloured dresses with the most breathtaking bunch of yellow flowers which were made and delivered by one of our fantastic recommended florists, Wedding Flowers by Keren! The very handsome groom was also looking amazing in his fantastic grey suit with a jade coloured tie & a yellow flower for his button hole… and who could forget the groomsmen! Such a great bunch of people with a really fantastic vibe about them! They stood proudly next to Paul in their black suits and gave him all of the support a best friend should give.
I am sure that seeing these lovely ladies walking down the aisle had Paul’s heart skipping a beat & becoming very, very eager to see his beautiful bride!
It was finally the moment that everyone had been waiting for… Sian stepped out of the Bridal Change room looking like the princess that she is! Everyone’s heads turned & you just couldn’t wipe the smile off of their faces but most of all Paul’s!
It was such a beautiful day & we were proud to be a part of it & to be able to show you the beautiful photos that were captured by the amazing Leah from Follett Photography!
Thank you Sian & Paul for choosing our Wedding Venues Gold Coast as the destination for your big day!

Kate and her four lovely bridesmaids stepped on to the water taxi at 1.30pm on Sunday, 10 October 2014 and were away on their adventure to our Gold Coast weddings destination, An Island Hideaway. These ladies looked absolutely stunning and they were only dressed in robes! We were so excited to see the final outcome!

On the 30th of November 2014, Simone and Iona travelled to our Gold Coast island wedding venue with one thing on their mind… to get married and spend the rest of their lives together!
What a glorious day this was with such a great bunch of people! Simone, Iona and their brilliant friends and family had our slice of heaven all to themselves for the day. Simone looked absolutely striking in her white flowing, princess dress with her four beautiful bridesmaids by her side wearing flawless baby pink dresses!
This day definitely had the Gold Coast Island Wedding feel with the colours that Simone and Iona chose to have and the way the room was decorated. They shared their love for one another in our beach side chapel with all of their friends and family surrounding and watching them. One of Simone and Iona’s family friends, Pastor Tusi, was lucky enough to be able to bless these two in holy matrimony. After the formalities took place in our beach side chapel, it was time for the signing of the register in our Bali hut and before we knew it Simone and Iona were pronounced husband and wife!
There was such a loud cheer of excitement from their loved ones which really put the finishing touch on their special day and the ceremony that had just taken place.
Josh from White Pearl Photography took some fantastic shots of this radiant newly married couple in the island’s lush bush land and then it was off to the surf side for some intimate beachside photos – a must-do for a Gold Coast island wedding!
It was an honour to work with Simone and Iona… Congratulations on your wedding day!

Marlaina & Luke… What a truly blessed & amazing couple these two were!! They were such a pleasure to work with & we can’t wish them enough happiness & love!
Marlaina & Luke set a date of the 11/10/2014 to officially announce to the world that they were committed to each other for life & we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to do that than An Island Hideaway!
Our Gold Coast Wedding Reception Venue
is definitely a venue with a difference as we are located on four acres of beautiful, lush, National Park with the calm Broadwater on one side of us & the perfect stretch of surf on the other.
Marlaina & Luke were set to say their “I do’s” on our beach landing by the very talented & fantastic celebrant Gary Taylor.
They were surrounded by their closest friends & family as the sun shone down on them & the sand nestled between their toes. Marlaina & Luke went one step further & incorporated a lovely sand ceremony into the formalities for their day which enabled them to both pour different coloured sand into the same bottle to be a keepsake forever. This was such a beautiful ending to their ceremony at our Gold Coast Wedding Reception Venue
& it wasn’t long before the register was signed & they were ready to party!
The newly married couple took some great shots in our gardens before they headed off to the surf side. Marley & Luke were definitely the photogenic couple & every shot they took looked unbelievable… I guess it is easy when there is so much love between two people.
We feel so blessed that we could share our Gold Coast Wedding Reception Venue
with such a great group of people and we wish you all the best for your bright future together!
