If you are planning to say "I do" on the golden sands of the Gold Coast, you must first obtain City of Gold Coast approval.
Beach weddings are approved by the City at no cost to the applicant on a non-exclusive basis for simple ceremonies only.
The ceremony is limited to a maximum of 50 people. This ensures there is minimal impact on the environment and other beach users. Beach weddings are therefore not appropriate for people considering a large formal wedding.
The beach is for the use and enjoyment of all and public access must not be restricted in any way.
There is no cost to be married on Gold Coast beaches.
To obtain approval for your beach wedding, you must apply for a beach wedding permit.
