Winter is here, which means across the country couples are finalising the details for their upcoming spring weddings. From table settings to floral arrangements to the wedding band, every detail needs to be perfect. While nothing is as important as celebrating with the ones you love, a close second just might be the location of the event. The question of where to host the ceremony and reception is a crucial part of the wedding planning process. It can hold even more weight for an LGBTQIA+ couple. Here are some of our favourite queer-friendly wedding venues across Australia.
Winner of the 2023 Wedding Industry Award for boutique wedding venues on the Sunshine Coast, Secrets on the Lake is a stunning venue suitable for small weddings, from intimate elopements to gatherings with forty guests. Secrets on the Lake offers self-contained luxury treehouse retreats, with each cabin featuring unique, hand-carved decor. Located amongst lush rainforest on the shore of Lake Baroon, this boutique accommodation showcases the natural beauty of the region to create the perfect romantic setting. Just forty minutes from the Sunshine Coast Airport, this is an ideal wedding venue for couples with family and friends flying in from around Australia.
Secrets on the Lake is owned and operated by George and Aldy, a couple celebrating 55 years of marriage. If anyone knows how to make dreams come true, it’s these two. With the help of Molly, the wedding planner, and Sarah, the wedding coordinator, George and Aldy ensure that each wedding is curated specifically for the spouses-to-be. They are well equipped to plan and host the entire wedding experience, from ceremony to reception to honeymoon, or you can pick and choose. If you have an intimate ceremony planned elsewhere but need a reception location, Secrets on the Lake is the perfect place. If you have a wild reception party planned, but want a more romantic reception, Secrets on the Lake can accommodate.
There are multiple locations to choose from within the Secrets on the Lake property, including the lakeside Peninsula, the Lakehouse, and the Dining on the Deck restaurant.
