9 Ultimate Wedding Venues on Tamborine Mountain

Latitude: -27° 55′ 39.05″ S   Longitude: 153° 11′ 39.50″ E      This is where you will find Tamborine Mountain, made up of North Tamborine, Eagle Heights and Mount Tamborine, all part of the ever so popular Gold Coast Hinterland.

As a professional wedding photographer I visit some of the most spectacular wedding venues around. There are many venues to choose from when selecting a wedding venue, but Mt Tamborine has that something special.  Mt Tamborine boasts stunning views out to the Pacific Ocean past the Gold Coast creating a perfect backdrop for your wedding.  With walking tracks and waterfalls, invite your guests to Mt Tamborine for your wedding weekend getaway.

There are multiple amazing, award winning wedding venues on Mt Tamborine, but here are 9 of my absolute favourite wedding venues, in no particular order…  If you are considering having your wedding day or weekend celebrations on Mt Tamborine, these venues are to be on your “to consider” list!

St Bernard’s Hotel

Molly & Syrah won me over!  And have you met Cooper?  The resident St Bernard’s are gorgeous and can be included in your day, not to mention those amazing views from the deck and ceremony gardens, a perfect venue for your garden ceremony.

Book the grand Marquee to accommodate up to 200 guests with a stocked bar full of beer & wine of your choosing and your own bartender for the night.  There’s room for your DJ or photobooth with plenty of space for that must have dance floor!

Spend your wedding night onsite, in the beautifully designed luxurious lodge, waking up to more stunning views.  St Bernard’s Hotel is warm and welcoming, and a beautiful venue for your wedding

Tamborine Gardens Wedding Resort

You have options!  What location would you choose for your ceremony?

The timber chapel complete with bell tower sets the scene for a romantic wedding ceremony at Mount Tamborine, especially with the magnificent crystal chandelier centrepiece.

Maybe the Private Garden Gazebo, you can create the ceremony you’ve always dreamt of.  With plenty of open space for seating, make this space yours.

The Fountain Atrium is a popular choice, more space with diverse options for your perfect backdrop, the fountain atrium is ideal for larger ceremonies.

If intimate is for you, consider the Waterfall Grotto.  Add a rainforest element to your wedding day with the Waterfall Grotto, with a lifelike waterfall feature that streams down cascading rocks as your backdrop.  Think peace and tranquillity.

You have options for your reception too, The Starlight Room or Waterfall Pavillion are both stunning options.  Certainly a venue to consider.

The Old Church

Dreaming of marrying the love of your like in a charming little church?  The Old Church is perfect. Think gorgeous gardens, green lawns, and one little Old Church.  Comfortably seating 60 guests and holds up to 90, the Old Church continues to draw attention through it’s architecture and adjoining restaurant.

The Old Church offers everything you could desire for your wedding.  Small enough to be quaint, but large enough to fill with your loved ones.
