The Bower Estate Gold Coast Weddings

The Bower Estate is a breathtaking wedding venue nestled on a private 120-acre estate in the magical Gold Coast hinterland. This all-in-one estate wedding venue boasts four picturesque ceremony locations, a stunning clear marquee, and exquisite onsite catering in partnership with Ridgeway Catering. There’s also a private bridal suite, endless photo opportunities, and accommodation for up to ten guests in the charming Bower Cottage.

The Bower Estate’s carefully curated wedding packages cover everything you’ll need for a stress-free wedding experience, including a 57-seater bus charter for guest transportation. The team understand all too well that there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to weddings, and so they work closely with couples to design bespoke wedding packages to suit every budget, aesthetic, guest list, and preferred days of the week. They’ll help you tailor the significant elements right down to the finer details and ease all of your wedding planning woes along the way!

The Scene at The Bower Estate Gold Coast

From the minute you arrive at this sprawling private estate in the Gold Coast hinterland, you’ll fall in love with its picturesque views and tranquil natural surroundings. The estate is perfectly located between Lamington and Springbrook National Parks, which means lush greenery, pristine rainforest, and towering mountains can be seen in every direction.

The sparkling clear marquee is a focal point of weddings at The Bower Estate and offers a dreamy setting for relaxed reception dinners. As night falls in the Gold Coast hinterland, the marquee’s dazzling fairy-lit roof creates a magical ambience for you and your guests to enjoy.

Another much-loved spot on this magnificent 120-acre estate is the beautiful old fig tree, which towers over a lovely grassy area near the marquee and is adorned with twinkling fairy lights. Many couples host pre-dinner drinks and nibbles beneath the fig tree, and it also provides a stunning location for romantic garden ceremonies.

The Bower Estate Gold Coast Wedding Ceremonies

The Bower Estate has four stunning ceremony locations for you to choose from, all boasting dreamy lighting and picture-perfect backdrops for your nuptials. Ceremony location options include:

  • Hillview: This is the estate’s signature ceremony location, enjoying a spectacular vantage point overlooking the dramatic mountains of Lamington and Springbrook National Parks.  
  • The Lawns: If you’re envisioning a dramatic ceremony entrance across pristine grassy lawns, this is the spot for you. The Lawns also offer a fabulous setting for post-ceremony lawn games and drinks.
  • The Verandah: The Cottage Verandah can comfortably host up to 100 standing guests and enjoys sweeping views across the estate. This is a great all-weather ceremony option, with high ceilings, exposed beams, feature lighting, and cooling fans.
  • The Fig Tree: Perfectly located right next to the marquee, the estate’s beautiful old fig tree is a cool and shady spot for romantic garden ceremonies. If you’re after an intimate rainforest vibe with epic views of Springbrook National Park, you’ll love this ceremony location.

Venue Testimonials

The Bower Estate made my dream wedding come to life. I couldn’t be more grateful for the journey the Bower Team created for us, from planning to the wedding day. The communication and planning with our wedding coordinator and vendors were seamless. I love the online platform the team use. It helped us stay with our budget and made planning a breeze. The venue is absolutely stunning and all at one location. This was important to us as we didn’t want guests travelling between the ceremony and reception. I can’t thank the team enough for the passion and love they put into our wedding day. You only get married once, and this team made sure that every detail and moment was one to remember.

The Bower Estate was a joy to work with from start to finish. They were friendly and polite, quick to get back to us, as well as flexible and helpful in accommodating our desires. The venue itself is a dream come true. Make sure you get pictures taken at sunset for that afternoon dappled glow. The Bower Estate was the best possible venue we could imagine for our wedding. It truly is an amazing outdoor rainforest retreat set in an amazing secluded piece of hinterland with mountain backdrops. Honestly, the photo's alone are out of this world, let alone the day itself!

Matthew B.

The Bower Estate is truly breathtaking, and the team there is nothing short of exceptional! Everyone is so supportive every step of the way and will go over and above to bring your wedding dreams to life. We couldn’t be more grateful for their dedication to making our day perfect, and the whole package with Ridgeway Group for catering and Wilde Flora for florals makes the whole experience so seamless. Knowing that everything was planned to perfection and waking up in the complete serenity of the cottage was everything you could hope for as a Bride! Our day was absolute perfection, and after months of planning, it was so special to have everyone from the Bower team there with us and supporting us on the day too. A huge thanks to everyone. We wish we could do that day over and over!
