Congratulations on your engagement – that’s awesome!

You have found your dream partner and you can’t wait to walk down the aisle together!
But that euphoric, post-engagement feeling may disappear when your friends and family begin to ask you about your wedding plans – when, where and the big one how many guests are you going to have?

Honestly, the logistics of planning a big wedding can be terrifying, particularly when you and your partner just want your special day to be calm and relaxed. Your wedding should be the happiest day of your life, not the most stressful or the most expensive.

If you and your partner are dreaming of committing your lives to each other with minimal cost, minimal stress but with maximum Love, happiness and chill-out factor, then you need to speak to the experts at Let’s Elope Gold Coast.

Let’s Elope offer complete elopement packages that include beautiful styling, a bubbly celebrant and a fantastic photographer, so all you have to do is show up looking gorgeous and they will take care of the rest.
You can have the perfect wedding day on the beautiful Gold Coast with the help of the friendly professionals from Let’s Elope Gold Coast who will guide you every step of the way.

Your day, your way and starting from the low price of just $2590*

Alternatively, there are so many beautiful public places to get married on the Gold Coast that it can be hard to choose.

List of Gold Coast beaches or beachside parks which we recommend for Gold Coast elopement wedding locations

  • John Laws Park Burleigh Heads
    This park is perched on top of the Burleigh headland, this is a simply stunning backdrop for your perfect day (and plenty of places to get a drink / bite afterwards).
  • Len Wort Park, Currumbin
    This pretty little beachside park is great for couples looking for a more secluded place to elope. You will be treated to an ocean backdrop and it’s only a short walk to Currumbin SLC and other restaurants at Currumbin beach.
    Also see Len Wort Park on Google Maps
  • Southern side of Elephant rock, Currumbin Beach
    This could be the spot for your perfect beach wedding!
    Being on the southern side of Elephant Rock we are often protected from strong winds (and large crowds) and this location lends itself to simply stunning wedding photos during and after the ceremony.
    There are also great reception lunch or dinner options at Currumbin SLSC, across the road at Elephant Rock Cafe and other places on the beachfront that are only a short stroll away.
  • Sue’s secret elopement spot Broadbeach
    If you want a beach wedding but don’t want to be the centre of attention, then I may have the perfect place.
    This elopement location is set in the sand dunes of Broadbeach 100m or so south of the Oasis Mall, and is totally protected from the outside world.
    You can get married amongst a beach pine tree grove with stunning beach views and then walk 10m down the sandy slope to the beach proper for some after ceremony photos on the beach (see photo below).

    Location list continues below.

Our best location picks for a garden wedding on the Gold Coast

  • Cascade Gardens, Broadbeach The Cascades as it is locally known is like an oasis in the middle of the Gold Coast.
    It is set alongside Little Tallebudgera Creek and there are a number of picturesque locations to choose from when deciding where to tie the knot. There is even a beautiful pergola set in the middle of the gardens that is a great fallback option if the weather isn’t the best.
  • Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens - Rosser Park - Benowa*
    The Gold Coast Botanic Gardens (see on map ) are the gardening showpiece of the Gold Coast!
    There are so many gorgeous places to get married here, you can either get married on a jetty over the lake or choose from one of the four glorious garden areas to perform your nuptials.

Secular (non-denominational) chapel wedding venues on the Gold Coast

*Note that weddings at all Gold Coast parks now require a GCCC permit which costs between $119-$306 and is not included as part of our elopement package price.

Let’s Elope Reviews and Testimonials

Below are a few reviews for the Let’s Elope Gold Coast elopement package team but there are many more within the reviews page.

2023

I cannot recommend Sue enough!! We were wanting to organise a small intimate elopement from interstate, which I thought would be a stressful task. But it was the complete opposite. She was simply amazing. She kept in contact right throughout the whole process. Touching base and pointing us in the right direction. On our zoom meeting, I knew right away Sue was the perfect fit for us. She was so down to earth, so loving, so easy going, so professional. She wanted our day to be perfect for us and that it was. It was so perfect! We cannot thank Sue and the team at Let’s Elope Gold Coast enough. It was our dream wedding ❤️
From Courtney Lawrance who married Matt Depta on Saturday, 13th May 2023 at the Beach, Sheraton Mirage, Main Beach.


Sue and her team made everything very easy and no stress as we wanted it to be. We had two meetings before the big day and our elopement ceremony was exactly what we asked for - intimate, simple, relaxed and beautiful. Sue was very thoughtful to suggest for us to have our vows both in English and Portuguese, as I'm originally from Brazil, and it made my parents who don't speak any English to feel included as well. It was perfect!
From Simone Paixao who married Patrick Brown on Thursday, 20th April at Long Tan Park, Currumbin Valley.

2022

We are so incredibly grateful to have found Sue. From the very beginning Sue was unbelievably helpful and accommodating. We met for a few coffee dates before our wedding to go over the details and paperwork, Sue made the whole process a breeze! Sue had us both feeling very comfortable standing under the arbour, allowing plenty of time for laughs and smiles. Sue was also a hit with the family! Sue and the Let’s Elope Gold Coast team were fantastic! We were actually due to be married during LaNina 2.0, but the team were more than happy to postpone for a sunny day.
Not to mention the commitment for sunrise!
It is clear by how much passion and attention to detail Sue provides, that she absolutely loves her job! What an amazing lady! One more thing, it's also nice to not be the only one in the photos with a smile so big their mouth is open! Hahaha! Thanks Sue!
By Coralee Sommer who married Jayce Harkness on Thursday, 27th October, 2022 at North Burleigh Beach with the Let’s Elope Gold Coast team.


The only thing that put a slight dampener on our special day was the weather! While unfortunately we didn't have a typical Gold Coast sunny wedding, the personalised and caring service provided by Sue and the Let’s Elope Gold Coast team shone through. From day one, we were cutting it fine to secure a team to help us organise our day. With just under three months until our date, we were extremely appreciative that Sue was able to accommodate us. Especially in the busy month of October!! Coming from interstate, the team made this such a stress-free affair... 'affair' the only time it is okay to mention this near a wedding'. Jokes aside, it seemed like all we had to do was show up on the day! Constant communication via email and zoom calls allowed us to plan and add personalised touches to the ceremony. Sue wrote and delivered a beautiful ceremony that captured the essence of us and our journey over the years as a couple. Once arriving on the Gold Coast she even met us during her busy schedule down at the secret elopement spot to ensure our nerves were settled and that we felt confident and prepared for the day. We received endless support and guidance with the completion of paperwork and lodging of forms. Her vibrant nature made the entire ceremony welcoming for all of our guests! Even during the windy day, Sue lent her shoal to one of our elderly family members to protect her from the wind. It's those little acts of kindness that made a world of difference on the day. I would wholeheartedly recommend Sue for any couple looking for a celebrant. If you are looking for the entire package, then look no further as the Let’s Elope Gold Coast team has it all covered. A celebrant, wedding stylist and photographer all in one. Ange definitely has a knack for decorating, as our setting on the day was absolutely beautiful. All of our colours were incorporated throughout our setting and no request was too much for her. The arbour was picturesque and I appreciated her attention to detail and help immensely. Bec is a wonderful photographer, and even with no modelling experience she put us right at ease with great direction. Some of the sneak peek photos we have received back are incredible and can't wait for the rest! The ladies worked so effortlessly together. All aspects were organised - From coordination of scenery and decor, to the photos and the officiating of the wedding, everything was exceptional. While hopefully this is our first and last wedding, if we ever decided to renew our vows I would definitely engage the services of Let’s Elope Gold Coast again.
By Lachlan Cooke and Jannae Calder on Monday, 10th October 2022 at the Secret Elopement Spot, Broadbeach with the Let’s Elope Gold Coast team.


The number of stars here aren’t enough to rate how happy we are with Sue and the rest of the team (Bec and Angelina). You ladies have been so helpful in preparing us and making the exact day perfect for us. No headaches - just a chilled, relaxing ceremony which both Flo and I loved. The spot was GORGEOUS (the weather on that day was a delightful bonus too😍). We couldn’t ask for anything more. Thanks heaps, Sue! I second all other reviews - you and the rest of the team are definitely highly recommended!!! ❤️❤️❤️
By Theresa Lina who married Florante Magboo on Friday, 19th August, 2022 at the Secret Elopement Spot, Broadbeach, QLD with the Let’s Elope Gold Coast Team.


We had the most amazing, relaxing and stress free wedding all thanks to Sue. Being nearly 8 months pregnant on our wedding day and with only 2 months notice due to a sudden decision to elope... the day was nothing short of amazing. Not only did Sue help us with the process working up to the day but even assisted afterwards. I have already recommended Sue and Let’s Elope to so many friends. If you want the best wedding experience, an amazing set up and photographer and celebrant then look no further than Sue and her team, they are nothing short of amazing ❤️
By Jess Potter who married Mitchell Potter at The Secret Elopement Spot, Broadbeach on Saturday, 26th March, 2022.

2021

We got married in a small backyard ceremony. Sue was brilliant. She couldn't have been more helpful in the planning stages and you can tell she loves what she does. We also used the stylist and photographer that Sue works with and they were great too. Would highly recommend Sue (and her team).
By Steve Davies who married Linda Worely at their home in Worongary, on Saturday, 5th June 2021


2020

We are so glad we chose Sue to be our celebrant, she was absolutely amazing from day 1. She spent time getting to know us, our story and personalised our ceremony which is exactly what we wanted.
She was always so helpful and friendly and kept in contact regularly in the lead up to the wedding and was always available to answer any questions we had.
The ceremony was relaxed, personal, fun, full of laughs and exceeded our expectations massively.
The styling by Breeze Weddings was stunning and the images by Just Rebecca Photography are just so beautiful. They are all so amazing to work with and we would 100% recommend them all.
Thank you all so much for making our day so perfect.
By Natalie Scott who married Brad Williams at the Secret Elopement Spot, Broadbeach on Monday, 21st December, 2020
