Destination Wedding Gold Coast – Cindy & Andrew Crothers.

If you have been following our Facebook page then you would have seen our special little segment on the beautiful Destination Wedding Gold Coast for Cindy and Andrew Crothers.

Mr and Mrs Crothers live in WA so An Island Hideaway was truly their Destination Wedding Gold Coast venue and had friends travelling from near and far.

Our love birds said their I do’s on our Destination Wedding Gold Coast beach front with rose petals and sand beneath their toes. They had their closest friends by their side and let me tell you this was a real privilege. Cindy and Andrew just had one too many friends and couldn’t decide who was going to be standing up their as the best man. What to do in this situation? Have a hunt around the Gold Coast a few days before the wedding of course! What a great idea. There were 20 fellas on a wild goose chase around the Gold Coast and the winner was named the champion and part of the bridal party. This just goes to show what fun these two were.

Our Destination Wedding Gold Coast venue was decorated with sand, shells and centrepieces with flowers either side that were supplied by Wedding Flowers by Keren. The ceremony and reception room looked absolutely breathtaking.

Mr and Mrs Crothers were married by the gorgeous Elizabeth Jesse on our beach landing and then signed their official paper in our beachside chapel. Their happiness and love radiated from them and everyone could feel it but the ever so talented Lenny Muthiah was there to capture it on film.

What an incredible wedding this was. Cindy and Andrew were such a kind and loving couple who made you feel as though you have known them for years. We feel truly honored to have been a part of the celebration for their wedding.

Australian Beach Weddings – Sarah & Duane

Holy fun! We had the ultimate pleasure of being the Australian Beach Weddings destination that Sarah and Duane had chosen for their special day. Sarah and Duane were such a beautiful, happy vibrant couple and you could just tell how in love they were which makes our job the best!

Why would you get married at an Australian Beach Weddings destination? Well our beautiful bride was privileged enough to be able to fly into her wedding on Cloud 9 Seaplanes and pull up on the water’s edge while her guests gasped in excitement. Where else on the Gold Coast can you go where you have a four acre secluded island paradise all to yourselves and a venue that you can arrive to via seaplane? This is just one of the reasons that you should consider getting married at an Australian Beach Weddings destination, especially An Island Hideaway!

Our bride and groom were super quirky and were married on our beach landing underneath our wooden arbour with the sand directly beneath our brides toes. Sarah wore the most gorgeous shoe jewellery with a knee length wedding dress that threw colours of blue from the bottom of it. The whole bridal party looked absolutely amazing matching with blues and oranges.

Sarah and Duanes reception room was decked out in our vintage burlap and lace runners with shells and flowers which brought in a vintage beach theme. The couples ideas came together perfectly and the whole room looked wonderful.

We wish you both the best of luck on this new venture in your life as husband and wife.

Feel free to contact us to find out more information on our beautiful Australian Beach Weddings destination and how we can create your perfect wedding.

A Few Words from one of the original An Island Hideaway Wedding Planners

It’s the end of the month, and what an amazing month it has been! I was given the opportunity to take a step back to where my roots began at An Island Hideaway – planning and hosting one of the most special days in a couples lives, when they get to share the love amongst family and friends. What a spectacular honour as a complete stranger.


This month I got to share the magic with several special couples, including the gentle Chantelle and Aaron. Aaron took a gamble with the weather and arrived to his grand day by speed boat. What a fine day it turned out to be for these sweet newlyweds!


Cindy and Andrew – what a sweet, sweet, sweet love. The wonderful ceremony service was conducted by Liz Jesse, and brought tears to my eyes let alone those of their guests. What a beautiful couple and what great company they shared.  It’s not often we get to experience a wedding on a Tuesday, and I could not believe how much support and love was shared by all of the guests near and far – you made the most out of celebrating this day with these two obviously amazing people.


Oh my gosh, Kelly and Thomas. You could not be blessed with anymore beauty on the inside than on the outside. Adorable, with love just filling the air! Kelly was not only a beautiful Bride, but with an amazing make-up team, is looking at joining the An Island Hideaway family as a recommended supplier herself. Kelly and Thomas had a last minute change of Celebrants, and being blessed with advice from a good friend – Abby from B105 FM was chosen to officiate their ceremony, and what a genuine service she delivered.


Melissa and Glenn, wow! I originally met this couple before moving on from my position as Wedding Planner, later having a baby and then coming right back to their very Wedding Day… We were back where we started, but this time it was for real, with all the plans in place and their own gorgeous little bubba Amity. Two extremely kind-hearted human beings who would do no wrong, divine parents, warm hearts – a true making for a happy and loving home. Congratulations!


Sarah and Duane, what a couple. They were both quirky and just down right awesome. Full of fun and life! With Sarah’s contagious energy, the couple was surrounded by years of friendship and a proud mum and dad! Sarah made a grand entrance, leaving us anxious with excitement for her arrival… And then there she was – high above us waving from the Seaplane! What a spectacular grand entrance.


Caleb & Samantha – a couple like this gives you faith of the good people surrounding us. Beautiful souls committing to one another, surrounded by loving parental relationships. It was just a beautiful breath of fresh air.


Well I feel completely blessed to have shared in these magic moments and thank you for the opportunity.


I hope you have all enjoyed a fabulous Easter full of chocolate, but most of all treasured the time with your families.


Our vibrant and passionate Wedding Planner, Rainbow, is back from her trip to Tokyo! It is now time to hand the reins back, as she excels at what she does…


Congratulations to all of the newlyweds, and congratulations to all of the newly engaged couples!!!  Exciting times ahead!!!


And to all those married, we wish you an everlasting relationship full of love and happiness!!!

Gold Coast Ceremony Venue – Kristy & Brad

On the 27th of September 2015, two of the most perfect souls joined together and became husband and wife at our Gold Coast Ceremony Venue destination, An Island Hideaway. Kristy and brad blew me away with the amount of love that they share and you could really tell that they are meant for each other. I don’t think that there was a point during their day that I didn’t see either of them not smiling.

Mr and Mrs Wormald celebrated their special day on our beach landing with their closest loved ones. Brad flew into our Gold Coast Ceremony Venue and made a huge entrance with Cloud 9 Seaplanes while Kristy was enjoying some champagne in our bridal room with her three gorgeous bridesmaids.  What a day of celebrations this was! Brad expressed that besides marrying Kristy, the Seaplane ride entrance was the highlight of his day.

Our gorgeous couple made it through their ceremony and surf side photos before the rain hit and even once it had they thoroughly embraced it and didn’t let that stop them from getting all of the photos they wanted. Our Gold Coast Ceremony Venue was decorated with blue colours, shells, sand and of course candles, they definitely incorporated the destination.

Kristy and Brad started off the party time dancing as husband and wife to “Hero” by Enrique Iglesis and let’s just say that I needed a packet of tissues! Watch their beautiful day of love that was celebrated at our Gold Coast Ceremony Venue here.

Gold Coast Beach Wedding Venue – Krystie & Dale

Gliding into your wedding on a seaplane and making a splash of an entry. What a beautiful way to start one of the biggest days of your life. This is exactly how our groom Dale arrived to his wedding at our Gold Coast Beach Wedding Venue right before he married his lovely fiancé, Krystie.

Usually it is the brides making the big grand entrances but this time it was the handsome groom. All of the guests waited with anticipation as Dale and his groomsmen landed on the front beach and then lead the way into the beachside chapel, ready for the gorgeous bride to make her down the aisle.

Krystie looked absolutely divine in her flowing white dress. She had four of her closest friends walking down the aisle first in their sequined silver and grey bridesmaid dresses which had everyone’s heads turning.

Our Gold Coast Beach Wedding Venue reception room was splashed with shades of champagne and sandy tones to create and elegant theme. Sand and shells were scattered down the tables on top of a bamboo runner. Krystie and Dale had a gorgeous centrepiece consisting of long twigs draped with white pearls. This just topped off the reception room perfectly.

Our newlyweds had a very special first dance with their loved ones which really moved everyone there. Krystie and her brother danced to “I loved her first” and Dale and his mum danced to “Your Song”, they then danced as husband and wife for the first time to “Grow Old with You”. What a great way to start t
he night.

We wish Krystie and Dale all of the love and happiness in the world and we were so grateful to be a part of this celebration.

Australian Beach Weddings – Shari & Drew

Our gorgeous bride and groom, Shari and Drew were married at our Australian Beach Weddings venue on the 29th of November 2015. These two were the sweetest couple I have had the pleasure of working with. They were extremely dedicated and organised and managed to finish both of their university degrees one week before their wedding! As I am sure you can imagine this was a very exciting time for them.

Our beautiful bride flew into her Australian Beach Weddings ceremony via Cloud9 Seaplanes and made one breathtaking grand entrance. Shari wasn’t the only one who had an exhilarating ride to their wedding though because Drew came roaring in on a speedboat with his two groomsmen and arrived just before the guests so that he could greet them as they departed the boat.

Shari walked the aisle with red and white rose petals beneath her feet and they shared their vows for each other in our beachside chapel. Shari and Drew were married by their own pastor and it would seem that the heavens agreed on this marriage as the whole sky lit up with the most beautiful orange sunset I have ever seen!

Our Australian Beach Weddings reception room was set up with black chair covers and table cloths and red chair sashes with tall vases and beautiful red roses as the centrepiece. These were supplied by our gorgeous florist Wedding Flowers by Keren. The woman behind photographing all of this beauty was the lovely Leah from Follett Photography, and she did such a great job (as always)!

To round things up at the end of the night, Shari went around and collected her rose bouquet centrepieces and handed them out to all of the special people that helped her along the way. It was a nice little surprise and one that we were so glad to be a part of.

Island Wedding Venues Queensland – Elise & David

On the 21st of August 2015, Elise and David decided to make a commitment to each other that would last for the rest of their lives and we were lucky enough to help them plan their big day and have 48 of their friends and family come to our Island Wedding Venues Queensland destination to celebrate.

Elise arrived to her wedding in style by flying in on our recommended Cloud 9 Seaplane! She travelled with her lucky bridesmaid Steph, her mum and dad and Kylie Maree the remarkable photographer from KM Studios!

Elise walked down the beach to the sounds of “Felt So Right” by Sarah Geronimo and she was lucky enough to have both her mum and dad walk with her. Our beloved celebrant Gary Taylor was privileged enough to marry these two sweethearts.

Our Island Wedding Venues Queensland destination, An Island Hideaway, was where Elise and David decided to tie the knot and we are so pleased.

The gorgeous newlyweds moved from the beach landing up to the Bali Hut to sign the official register and made it that little bit more special by having a gorgeous butterfly releasing ceremony.

The butterfly’s really got cosy with the two love birds and wouldn’t leave them so they travelled to the surf side and joined Mr and Mrs Steel in their one on one intimate photos. They had the gorgeous backdrop of the waves rolling in and were also able to get some amazing photos with their butterflies. What a perfect way to finish the formalities of the afternoon.

David and Elise were such a beautiful couple to work with and we wish them all of the love and happiness in the world xx

Our Island Wedding Venues Queensland destination would love to be the perfect spot for you so contact us to find out more information.
