Hello May Online Real Weddings Blog

 

May 2015

Riverwood was featured as a Real Wedding editorial on the Hello May online blog in mid 2015. This was from the very first wedding we held at Riverwood for our Soph + Pete which was an Apache themed boho chic event back in September 2014. Needless to say we were excited to have our venue featured and the Venue Approval was launched thereafter!

Channel 9's The TODAY Show

WedShed Feature segment

 

July 2016

As a WedShed Venue since the early days of the sites launch, Riverwood was super chuffed to be chosen as one of their venues to be featured on a live TODAY Show segment where our signature image of Sophie and Peter's Ceremony on our riverbank was displayed behind the Interviewer for the duration of the 31/2 minute segment.

Needless to say after this Australia wide exposure our enquires started flooding in from the site and their venue directory and we haven't looked back since! 

We are so happy top be a valued WedShed venue and the support they have given us over the years has been invaluable - thanks gals x

The Brides Market Event styled collaboration 

 

September 2016

Set at the base of the beautiful Tamborine Mountain, the landscape of Riverwood weddings creates the perfect backdrop for the wild florals, exotic textures and eclectic elements of this styled shoot. Prue Franzmann captures stunning lace details of the Jennifer Gifford lace gown to the delicate Komorebi.Bride headpieces adorning the bride with hair and makeup by Blush & Bangs Beauty. Wild bright florals by Bits & Buds line the tablescape, contrasting against the moody colour palette of crockery and refined stationery by Sunshine & Confetti. Set under a naked Tipi by Gold coast tipis, the draped festoon lighting illuminates the metal details, persian rugs, blankets and comfy cushions inviting you to sit and be immersed in a bohemian styled banquet thanks to Arctic Fox Styling.

The sun sets in the horizon filtering light through the the intricate macrame cake hanger dreamed up by Akuliandcomacrame complete with colourful cake by Petal & Peach Bespoke Cakery. The festoon lights turn into golden orbs illuminating the Gathering Events caravan bar to the Insta.kombi photo booth – just a few more elements of this eclectic celebration. This exploration of bohemian textures was created to inspire the free-spirited bride who loves nothing more than good food, drinks and dancing under the stars.

Christine + Andrew's Gold Coast Hinterland wedding was magical to say the least. Their relaxed and whimsical day was inspired by their love of travel and the places they loved to travel together, particularly Italy - we can see how such a beautiful wedding can be created when the bride and groom draw inspiration comes from one of the most romantic destinations in the world!

With a stunning backdrop in the Gold Coast Hinterland, these gorgeous photos by Byron Loves Fawn perfectly capture a day filled with love, laughter, family and friends, with plenty of small but personal details that helped create a wedding that was a true reflection of the happy couple. After speaking with Christine about her experience as a bride, her inspiration for the day and how she pulled her dream team together - it's not surprising to hear her admit she wouldn't change a thing about their day!

August 2017

Kirsten and Anthony described their wedding day as "magic"... and it's evident through these images exactly why! Set in the lush 8-acre grounds of Riverwood Estate on the Gold Coast, the backdrop for the day was a beautiful mix of sun-soaked hinterland and lake views, with an open-air Tipi setting the scene for the evening. 

Kirsten and Anthony's vision of an elegant, rustic wedding was truly brought to life with a selection of relaxed cocktail furniture in timber, white and metallic tones. The look was completed with native florals, fire pits and twinkling festoons creating a glowing ambience for the night to unfold.

Planning the entire wedding from interstate, it was important for Kirsten & Anthony to choose wedding suppliers they could trust and who completely understood their vision for the day - and they definitely chose a dream team of total professionals. From the picturesque hinterland location to THAT incredible dress, their day was filled with beautiful details that worked together in perfect harmony to transform this blank canvas into a relaxed cocktail wedding.

More images from This Day Forward, along with the suppliers that made it all possible and some words of advice from the bride and groom!

For the bohemian bride and her 100 tent-worthy guests.

Classic ingredients for a brilliantly bohemian wedding often include teepees, flower crowns and a heelless bride. However, casual couples are now wanting to tie the knot in a full festival setting, encouraging their guests to stay over at the venue, and cosy up in front of the fire by setting up tents to camp their way through the wedding weekend.

Here, we have curated a list of the finest wedding venues across Australia (with a little help from WedShed — AKA the Airbnb of beautiful wedding venues) that offer camping, and even glamping, so you can plan your boho nuptials.

One of our #riverwoodwedtribe suppliers get Photo Boothed gave us a super cool blog post on their site to share the #riverwoodwedingslove: 

 

The Gold Coast has an abundance of wedding planners, beautiful venues, skilled photographers and other wedding supplies. We recently interviewed  Carmen the daughter of the owners of Riverwood Estate, a wedding venue located in the beautiful scenic Gold Coast hinterland, at the base of Mt Tamborine that has been an idyllic wedding venue over the past few years hosting tipi weddings.

Hidden at the base of Mt Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland is Riverwood Estate, an exquisite wedding venue with an idyllic setting, they have made themselves known for hosting tipi weddings, customised uniquely to you!

We talked to Carmen from Riverwood Weddings, the daughter of the owners of Riverwood Estate, in which they hire out to those looking for a gorgeous background to their nuptials. The natural surroundings also act as the perfect setting to wedding photos. She has given us a peek into this beautiful venue, the history, more on tipi weddings, and everything they offer to couples looking to wed.
