Wedding Photography

Location inspiration: Beautiful photo spots on the Gold Coast


There are only so many ways to take a bride’s photo on a beach, right? Wrong! Every Gold Coast beach has its own personality and style – and some are much more photogenic than others. Plus (shh, don’t tell anyone), there actually is more to be seen in the city than just sand. Explore off-the-beaten-beach tracks for some amazing wedding backdrops. #beachtobush

Burleigh Hill

If it’s a city/beach scape you’re after, you can’t go past Burleigh Heads. John Laws Park, better known as Burleigh Hill, offers one of the most magical views anywhere in the world. A stunning park with views all the way to Surfers Paradise make for a dream wedding photo shoot.

Froggy’s Beach

On the very southern point of the Gold Coast is the ‘secret’ cove of Froggy’s Beach. Protected from wind by the surrounding hills, and with an amazing contrast of colours from rocks, sand and driftwood, it’s a dream setting. There’s even a timber boardwalk from the top of the hill to recreate that ‘here comes the bride’ moment.

Currumbin rocks

If you want your photos to rock, roll right to Currumbin. From the famous Elephant Rock, home to one of the country’s most amazing ANZAC Day dawn services, to Flat Rock and its tidal pools, this beachside suburb is the perfect place for photographic reflections.

Pizzey Park Forest

Only minutes from the sand, you can take your bridal party into the woods at Miami’s Pizzey Park Forest. The small pine forest creates a dreamy, green landscape that looks like it’s from another place and time. In the hands of a skilled professional, it can make for photographic magic.
