Where to get married in the Redlands Area, Brisbane?
Being a marriage celebrant based in the Redlands, I can vouch for you, that any one choosing to marry in the Redlands, is spoilt for choice. There is an absolute plethora of magnificent wedding venues available, so I get to perform marriage ceremonies in a wide variety of places close to my home.
Literally five minutes from my home at Alexandra Hills, is the magnificent Macarthur Park Wedding Gardens and Chapel situated in Macarthur Street, Alexandra Hills. Owners Karen and Rick live on site. They attend to the gardens, keeping them in top condition at all times. Having said that, the chapel is Karen’s pride and joy. The combination of chapel and garden which includes a lagoon, offers couples almost limitless opportunities for wedding photos. The wedding gardens and chapel at situated at 21-29 Macarthur Street, Alexandra Hills. We also offer Popup weddings at this venue, read more here.
From there it is approximately a two- minute drive to the newly renovated Alexandra Hills Hotel. There are several reception rooms, the largest of which will hold over two hundred wedding guests. There are plenty of beautiful, shady trees for your outdoor wedding, of if you prefer, or, the weather dictates, there is a choice of under-cover areas. With brand, spanking new 4.5-star, motel type accommodation on site and loads of free parking, it is an ideal venue for your entire wedding celebration. You will find the Alexandra Hills Hotel at the Corner of McDonald Road and Finucane Road, Alexandra Hills.
One of Cleveland’s historic buildings, The Courthouse Restaurant, plays host to marriage ceremonies and receptions alike. The wedding ceremony area is built on the bay foreshore. It is not uncommon for the guests to see a pod of dolphins playing happily in the background when the wedding ceremony is in progress. With free parking and accommodation, this is a very attractive wedding venue. Check it out at 1 Paxton Street, Cleveland.
A little further on, right on Cleveland Point is the iconic Lighthouse Restaurant. With 180-degree bay views, it really is one of Cleveland’s magnificent venues. Drive to the end of Shore Street, Cleveland and it is impossible to miss it.
Further back in Shore Street, Cleveland but with the same magnificent views is the historic Grand View Hotel. You can hold your marriage ceremony and wedding reception in the grounds or on the veranda of this magnificent old building. Parking is never a problem.
Situated in the centre of the main street in Cleveland is the Pacific Hotel Resort. The Resort boasts a large reception room with beautiful chandeliers and can cater for up to 200 wedding guests. Add to this, accommodation on site and close vicinity to Raby Bay Harbourside and Park and you have all your wedding requirements covered.
Recently I performed a marriage ceremony at the Redlands RSL in Cleveland. The bride and groom chose to have a traditional wedding breakfast which seems to be becoming more popular. Parking is plentiful. The address of the Redlands RSL is 8 Passage Street, Cleveland.
Redland Bay Golf Club took out first place in the Australian Bridal Industry Awards for Club Reception. With free parking and two areas to choose from for your wedding ceremony, together with your wedding reception area overlooking the lush, green golf course, it is well worth checking out the Redland Bay Golf Course at North Street, Redland Bay.
