Spellbinding scenery, charming townships, a laid-back atmosphere – what’s not to love about a wedding up in the mountains? The perfect match for couples seeking all this and more, Tamborine Mountain’s Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard & Winery is the stuff of daydreams. Curious? Here are five reasons to consider this excellent venue for your special day.
This dreamy venue is pure romance. Set high atop Tamborine Mountain, Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard & Winery boasts everything from an elegant sandstone chapel with manicured gardens to an old-world lakeside gazebo and a sun-kissed vineyard.
For a timeless celebration, say “I do” in the venue’s non-denominational chapel or under a floral arbour in the exquisite gardens before exploring the venue’s tree-lined avenue and straight-from-a-fairytale lake for photos. And top everything off with a fabulous reception in Cedar Creek’s Cedar Room and admire more enchanting vineyard views – sigh. However you choose to celebrate your special day, you’ll be treated to a truly gorgeous setting.
Known for its deep green valleys, forest-topped peaks and blissfully cool climate, Tamborine Mountain seems made for weddings. Ideally situated an hour south of Brisbane and 45 minutes north of the Gold Coast, this picture-perfect destination also makes travelling to and from your wedding a stress-free affair for loved ones – big tick!
Always loved the idea of a wed-fest or wedding weekend? With plenty of fantastic accommodation on the mountain, you can really make the most of your time with guests and extend the festivities beyond the reception. Of course, if you wanted to enjoy this spectacular part of the world just the two of you, we wouldn’t blame you. Luckily, you’ll find a slew of sumptuous hideaways dotted across the mountain, making for an unforgettable honeymoon or post-wedding escape.
Welcome to a wine-lovers’ heaven
Whether you consider yourselves serious wine connoisseurs or you just enjoy a cheeky drop every now and again, you’ll find plenty to love about tying the knot at Cedar Creek Estate. Home to a working vineyard and winery, the venue also pairs its reception menus with its own wine – how’s that for a gourmet wedding?
Want to really impress friends and family? Send them home with a bottle of Cedar Creek Estate’s Sauvignon Blanc or Syrah Shiraz (or whatever takes your fancy) as a special wedding favour. It’d be enough to win us over!
An essential part of any next-level amazing celebration is, undeniably, the food. Sure to have guests raving about your wedding long after the confetti has settled, Cedar Creek Estate’s seasonal menus showcase the region’s marvellous produce.
Thinking of keeping things light? Consider dishes like smoked salmon and mini blinis pancakes, and fresh prawns with avocado for entree, followed by Thai-infused barramundi for main and crowd-pleasing individual pavlova for dessert. Want to embrace the cooler climate and serve something belly-warming? Indulge in comfort food like goats cheese and asparagus tart for entree, confit duck, eye fillet steak or lamb rump for main, and traditional sticky date pudding or French creme brûlée for dessert. There are also vegan and vegetarian options available, making catering for loved ones wonderfully easy.
One of the best things about exchanging vows at Cedar Creek Estate is how hassle-free the planning process can be. With an experienced in-house wedding coordinator there to listen to your ideas and take care of all the finer details, you can skip the stress-out and really enjoy your special day.
