Summer Grove 


Summer Grove estate is easily one of the most sought after wedding venues on the Gold Coast, period. The venue offers pristine service and food matched by a seriously stunning backdrop. If the sun is shining then you can guarantee that you will get some amazing phots. As a Gold Coast wedding photographer, venues like this make my job so much easier because the surrounding is just so pretty.

The chapel also offering its only charm and unique characteristic allowing light to bounce off the white walls and make you look as pretty as ever with soft diffused light during your ceremony and the main reception hall would look pretty even without decorations. Its a great venue for your family and friends to relax and as with most of the best Gold Coast wedding venues everything is all close together, which as a wedding photographer I love.  For more information make sure you contact them here

Cowbell Creek 


Cowbell creek is another tour de force in the wedding industry on the Gold Coast and with the amazing location its no surprise why. Cowbell creek is just a short drive away from Robina but the setting makes you feel like you’re hours inland.

Beautiful green rolling hills surround the charming barn set in the hinterland that sits on 170 acres and a working cattle farm.

Visually the property looks amazing and every time I enter to photograph the details of the wedding venue im always blown away by how pretty it is .  It’s a wonderful and spacious venue that can host up to 150 guest for a sit down meal or cocktail party.

There are many photography opportunities throughout the sprawling property and usually the venue organisers will whisk us away to drive around the surroundings for some beautiful wedding photography. There are endless amounts of options here from photos with the local wildlife ( cows and horses ) as well as a magical fig tree set at the bottom of the hill. As the sun sets you can head further up the hills to capture the last light and it always allows for that stunning, classic lens flare wedding photography and videography that I’m sure everyone loves.
