If you want a Gold Coast garden wedding then Braeside Wedding Chapel is a perfect venue for you. Garden weddings take place on the lower lawn or the paved circle beside the giant Camphor Laurel tree and swing. With white Americano style chairs placed in or around the circle, this provides the perfect garden ceremony setting.
Our grounds accommodate garden weddings from small to medium. Set beside our lake, the shed bar is an informal location for pre-reception drinks. While the marquee is a space you can dress up for a formal reception.
The plan A garden wedding is always to enjoy beautiful sunshine to make this a glorious day for everyone involved. You can choose between locating your garden wedding on the paved circle (shown below) or under the tree. The tree is always a favouite for garden wedding photos (see our home page!). The paved area offers somewhere for older family members to feel comfortable (on firm ground) while you enjoy the delights of your garden wedding.
Plan B for your Gold Coast wedding swings in if the weather turns foul. This happened recently, the weather turning abruptly as the ceremonies were about to begin. We quickly threw open the doors of our wedding chapel and made this available to our wedding party. In theory, the garden wedding and the chapel wedding are separate bookings, but where possible we make this available as plan B if things go pear shaped with the weather. This makes us a unique venue for your Gold Coast garden wedding, giving you the all the delights of a garden wedding, with the fallback position providing shelter if it comes down cats and dogs.
