about the venue:


Set in the idyllic and picturesque Gold Coast Hinterland within the foothills of Tamborine Mountain, you will find this stunning private retreat, Riverwood Estate. Nestled along the banks of the Coomera River, with lush, green surrounds as your backdrop, this 10 acre property is perfect for couples wanting the romantic and laid back country wedding feel with a difference.

Think along the lines of bespoke, gypsy inspired tipis with bohemian rugs and dreamcatchers; big white Hamptons style sail tents to dance the night away; clear roof topped Marquees or opt to dine under the stars under an open-aired canopy of festoon lights; catering for both Ceremony & Reception.

We are a blank canvas with no restrictions on your dream vision, here at Riverwood Weddings you are only limited by your own imagination for your perfect day to be as unique and special as you. Incorporating your whole wedding day experience with ceremony, canapés and reception – with lots of photos in between! Wow guests with a truly unique experience whilst being so close to the central Gold Coast for total convenience and ease, Riverwood Estate is situated less than 40 minutes from Surfers Paradise or less than 20 minutes from Sanctuary Cove.

Riverwood Estate is our families privately owned residence situated on 10 acres in the Guanaba Valley along the Coomera River. I grew up here with my sister and 3 brothers, playing in the river over summer before we were lucky enough to get a pool – which I was not living here to enjoy by then! We’ve had horses and motorbikes and roamed around our beautiful valley for so long – to see it change now to be so close to “town” compared to 15 years ago is unreal. Town has come to us but we are still Country living with lots of privacy. We have lived here for over 20 years and our parents have nearly hand-planted each and every tree, bush or flower on this property with love and care. Many people who come here for the first time are amazed at this little piece of paradise as it is so serene, quiet, peaceful and above all I think, a truly blank canvas outdoor venue that can turn your dreams into a reality for your perfect day.

Riverwood is our parents home and we had our engagement at Riverwood, and years later my younger sister Sophie hosted her own engagement party. We had soooo many wonderful comments on the estate at the engagement parties that guests literally thought there was a surprise wedding! The property has found its calling and is a very unique space to view and we welcome our couples to our #riverwoodweddingsfamily to share their #riverwoodromance.

I am available for extra On the Day Coordination of your wedding event at Riverwood (extra charges do apply for up to 18 hours assistance) and my own career background in business administration, marketing and hospitality / tourism with a Diploma in Hospitality Management, has greatly assisted me with tailoring unique weddings for our couples. So far I have assisted hosting weddings at Riverwood which all flowed seamlessly and smoothly for our relaxed couples, from interstate or locally. A Riverwood Weddings is a wonderful experience for the guests and most importantly the couple to have the wedding of their dreams!
