We were welcomed into The Valley Estate at Currumbin on the Gold Coast before it was even a fully built wedding venue. We sipped champagne on the deck of the house with other Gold Coast wedding suppliers and we all said to each other ‘if they can actually pull this off… it’s going to be incredible’. It seemed too good to be true!
Spoiler alert: They nailed it, and this venue is even more spectacular than any of us could have imagined. Each building, right down to each light fixture, has been so thoughtfully considered to ensure the whole venue is perfectly set up for beautiful weddings, and when you see the images below you’ll totally understand why this is one of our favourite places to document wedding days.
There’s two areas for each side of the wedding party to get ready – a suite hidden above the reception area, beautifully appointed, so spacious, light and bright and perfect for hair and makeup. A second retreat in its own building, darker and moodier, with a pool table and the option to do fun things like whiskey tastings pre-wedding. There’s the sweet white chapel looking out over the paddocks, a great weather-proof option for ceremonies (plus it’s air conditioned for hot days!) or our favourite spot – the glasshouse! This big glass building lets in so much light, it’s full of plants, has its own bathrooms, sound system and air con and the wonderful TVE staff will follow us down there with food and drinks when we go for portraits – it’s it’s all the best bits about being outdoors, but indoors! You can also have ceremonies in here if the weather is looking dodgy, which we love – because the whole building is glass you still feel like you’re outside whilst staying perfectly dry.
If the weather is good, you can get married by the dam, and we can whip around the beautiful gardens, fields and buildings before getting you back to the parrrr-tayyyy! The reception space is magnificent, accented by spectacular chandeliers and super high ceilings, the perfect mix of industrial but warm and inviting. The food and drinks are absolutely amazing, the service second to none, it’s just always such a delight to be here celebrating alongside our TVE couples.
