Wedding: A peaceful paradise

The pristine, peaceful paradise enveloping Couran Cove Island Resort is an exceptional setting for special wedding ceremonies and amazing honeymoons.

The wide range of stunning locations is easily styled to meet your personal requirements. Wed amidst the sand dunes or along 22 kilometres of surf beach in a private ceremony. Use the stunning extensive water views of the marina or the lush rain forest at the resort lagoon as the backdrop for your ceremony. Or exchange vows at the non-denominational open aired Mango Chapel, canopied under an historical grove of Mango trees with the grand Mount Tamborine in the background. Our dedicated Wedding Co-ordinator is on hand to ensure a seamless event down to the smallest details such as organising flowers or a photographer.

The Resort caters for weddings for a minimum of 60 guests, with a choice of three reception venues. The Surf Club overlooks the pristine surf beach and sand dunes. The Beach Pavillion, with its silk drapings, overlooks the lagoon beach. Or choose the Restaurant as a venue with views of the Marina.

Stroll along Couran Cove's stunning beaches or wander through the island's ancient rainforests
together. Enjoy your Honeymoon Package stay in a Marine de Luxe room with stunning water views, a sunset plane tour with a secluded catered drop off and a choice of spa treatments. The pure, natural settings combined with exceptional service ensure your pure relaxation and pampering.
