Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast wedding venue beachfront

Location, location: Why this beachfront Gold Coast resort is a grand choice for a luxe wedding

Destination Weddings // Venues // by Nicole Deuble

When five-star luxury meets the beauty of the beach, you know you’re on a wedding winner. And in the world of coastal events, absolute beachfront really takes the cake. Imagine gliding from your elegant “I do” onto the powder-soft sands for a golden hour photo shoot. Revelling in your first moments as newlyweds with the ocean waves sparkling beyond before floating on air to party with your favourite people at a decadent reception.

It’s the dream, right? And only one Gold Coast venue sets the scene to perfection. We’re talking true beachfront — no roads to cross, stroll straight onto beautiful Mirage Beach — and a spectacular all-in-one wedding experience. Meet the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, just the spot to elevate your ‘beach wedding’ into seriously coastal-luxe territory (you know, the kind usually reserved for swanky private islands).

Majestic yet modern, the Sheraton offers 11 superb areas for your ceremony and reception, meaning a space to suit almost every wedding style. From beachfront terraces and tropical seaside gardens to poolside terraces and lavish ballrooms, they all come with Sheraton’s flawless coordination, so your day flows seamlessly from H&M prep right through to the after-party.

For an intimate celebration, we love restaurant-style dining at the Oyster Bar & Grill (the dinner party vibe is very 2021) while a lavish celebration calls for the traditional splendour and crystal chandeliers of the Grand Ballroom. Can’t get enough of those ocean views? See the resort’s most iconic venue, Horizons, which frames the panoramic sea vistas with floor-to-ceiling glass. Breathtaking. 

Okay, so the venues are stellar, but there’s another reason luxury-loving couples rocket the Sheraton Grand Mirage up their shortlist. The resort itself. The surrounds are exceptional with postcard backdrops around every palm-fringed corner including the porte cochere (grand entryway), aquamarine lagoons and swimming pools, and expansive timber decking and boardwalks. Even the sky bridge to neighbouring high-end shopping hub, Marina Mirage serves as a stunning photo call.

Bringing your nearest and dearest? We know you want your guests to feel the love and the Sheraton delivers with its signature service, top-notch facilities, and plush accommodation at every level including Lagoon View Rooms, Ocean View Suites, and Two- and Three-Bedroom Villas (which enjoy an exclusive ‘villa’ swimming pool). Looking for your own honeymoon haven? The Deluxe Ocean Suites offer sweeping sea views and are perfectly appointed for newlyweds.

The chance to have your entire guest list stay and play in such a magical locale opens the door to endless wedding weekend adventures. From day spa indulgence with your bride tribe and leisurely beachfront lunches with your whole crew to adrenaline-pumping adventures on and off the water, the Gold Coast is a veritable playground. Scaling Australia’s highest residential tower (Q1) before poolside cocktails perhaps? Maybe a sunset cruise along the Broadwater followed by a memorable dinner on Main Beach? Holiday memories are made of this.

But let’s back up to that beach. The Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort offers two direct access points to the white sands and turquoise waves beyond, a treat you can enjoy well beyond the wedding day —because who doesn’t love the idea of a glorious Gold Coast honeymoon?
