When two people get engaged the wedding planning begins. The first few things to consider are the date of the event, and where to hold this event. Since a wedding will be up there with the most important days of your life where you decide to have your ceremony should be something meaningful to you.
Find the Perfect Venue for your Wedding
There are as many different tastes for venues as their are brides. Have you dreamt of having a beautiful beach wedding walking down the aisle in bare feet and a ring of flowers in your hair? Or perhaps you are a traditionalist and would like to hold a formal ceremony inside the halls of an ancient church. Surrounding yourself with the scent of myrrh and gorgeous stained glass. Still others may prefer a garden setting with colorful flowers, and lush greenery giving your special day a more whimsical feel.
No matter what your taste or budget there is a perfect venue in Brisbane waiting for you. The decision to join two lives together is the first of many joint decisions. Many new couples would like to include their parents, siblings, or close friends in the decision making process. The best way to choose the perfect venue is by seeing each one. Walk around the grounds and imagine your guests, and the way you want your day to feel.

To get you started we have outlined several popular beaches, churches, and gardens for weddings in the Brisbane area.
Brisbane’s bayside beaches are more like the English seaside, with reddish gold sand, and no waves, and are dotted by charming seaside villages making for fantastic wedding photos. There are several great beaches to visit for a beach wedding.
Lower Moora park & beach in Shorncliffe has a treeline that nearly meets the coastline. The water is like glass, and the skies are a beautiful crystal blue. This beach has a childlike whimsical feel with colourful animal wood carvings and sea creature sculptures.
Redcliffe Peninsula has many little bay beaches along its coast. The farthest northern point is Scarborough Beach, and the prettiest of all the beaches. Norfolk Pine trees line the beach, and there is a childs park that is railway themed on one side and pirate themed on the other, so if you happen to want a theme wedding you have some pretty interesting possibilities here.
Last is Margate Beach, a little beach with English charm. Margate Beach is a little bit of a hike to get too but has an adorable 1930s bath house, and a lovely well maintained boardwalk. This beach is not for everyone but for the right couple it will be wedding heaven.
Rainbow Beach, Sunshine Coast
The red gold coast of Rainbow Beach is gorgeous especially in the evenings as the colors seem to come alive. The long stretch of sandy beach that juts out into the water makes for some fantastic photos. Rainbow Beach is a peaceful setting for any wedding.
