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. We have lived here for 30 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 I am now blessed to live here again with my 3 children and call Riverwood home again. My younger sister Sophie hosted her engagement party home at Riverwood and we had soooo many wonderful comments on the estate at the party that guests literally thought there was a surprise wedding! So OG Riverwood couple Soph + Pete tied the knot at our parents property in September 2014 and Riverwood Weddings came to a natural fruition. 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.
