Here’s how you can reduce the overwhelm and plan your Noosa beach wedding or Noosa elopement with ease:
Hire a professional wedding planner

Noosa wedding planners like Lovebird Weddings or CL Weddings & Events know what makes Noosa special. They can help you to find the perfect secret wedding locations, which event suppliers to source decorations and which Noosa wedding celebrants to recommend, as well as taking care of all the finer details to ensure your special day goes to plan without a hitch.

Create an itinerary
Hosting a destination wedding gives you the opportunity to create a fun and exciting experience for both the two of you and your friends and family. A great way to give your guests a memorable holiday and wedding experience is to create an itinerary. Do your research first to learn about the area, places you’d like to visit or activities to enjoy with your guests during their holiday.
Consider taking a trip to Noosa together as a couple to help get ideas, visit the places you’ve researched to see if they’re a perfect fit and if you’re hiring a professional wedding planner you can arrange to meet them on site to discuss your wedding plans. There are some incredible experiences to enjoy in Noosa, like riding a horse in the ocean with Noosa Horses, taking a romantic sunset river cruise with Gondolas of Noosa, hire a stand-up paddleboard and explore Noosa National Park from the water. When booking your trip to Noosa, be sure to contact our events specialist to arrange a time to meet and show you how our restaurant can transform into your ultimate Noosa wedding reception venue.
