What to consider when searching for a venue?

Size: Find a venue that has the right amount of space for the number of guests you're inviting and think about what rooms will be best for each part of your day. You may want something a little more intimate with a small wedding venue or something super spacious to accommodate your long list of friends and family. 

Style: Whether you're dreaming of a formal ball, a laid-back gathering or something in between, choose a venue that is in keeping with your theme.

Service: Find a venue with a dedicated team that will provide great service the whole way through your planning process.

Location: Do you want a quiet beachside ceremony, or perhaps a city wedding amongst the hustle and bustle? Think about your dream locations, and consider whether your guests will be able to travel there easily enough.

Exclusivity: Is your venue planning on hosting more than one wedding a day, or will it be exclusively yours? 

Accommodation: If you or your guests will be needing somewhere to stay, is there on-site accommodation or can they recommend somewhere nearby?

Ask Questions: Ask your venue as many questions as you can think of so you can be sure that it's the right venue for you. No question is a silly question!

#4 - Redland Bay Golf Club

Redland Bay

< Cocktail, Seating, Starting Price, Accommodation Icon for 116556 >

Queensland’s climate lends itself to outdoor garden weddings, and Redland Bay Golf Club provides an ideal location for couples looking to make the most of this. Flexibility and attention-to-detail are key to the venue’s offering, but ceremonies typically take place in a serene setting by the fountain lake, amid majestic gum trees. 

A large open-air deck, overlooking the golf course, provides a perfect area for pre-dinner cocktails and guest gatherings, while the floor-to-ceiling glass walls of the reception room offer magnificent views to the outdoors, whatever the weather. The comfortable space seats 120 guests, with the combination of candle-light and flood-lit garden vistas adding to the room’s romance and atmosphere once the sun sets.
