Known by a handful as one of the Gold Coast’s best-kept secrets, Braeside is a stunning garden wedding venue with a gorgeous chapel onsite. Located on a 2-acre estate with manicured gardens, The Pavilion, and plenty of room for guests to wander and backdrops for your wedding photos, Braeside is your dream wedding destination.

When you’re searching for a venue that not only can host your ceremony and reception in the same location but can offer you multiple sites to choose from, you know you’ve found a winner. Considered one of the Gold Coast’s hidden treasures, Braeside at Gin House Creek estate is an exclusive garden wedding venue that features dreamy vistas with rustic touches.

Choose from three ceremony locations; the chapel, the tree and the gardens. The chapel is a light-filled space that features white walls and ceilings, simple wooden pews, and an elegant chandelier suspended above the altar. This non-denominational space welcomes couples of all backgrounds to exchange their vows. If you’re keen on an outdoor ceremony, garden weddings occur under a magnificent tree on manicured lawns.

Receptions can take place in several locations across Braeside. The lawn is an indoor/outdoor space that inspires a relaxed atmosphere; the shed is an industrial undercover area with bar tables and garden views, and The Pavilion is ideal for elegant affairs.

What you’ll love about Braeside on the Gold Coast:

  • Comprehensive wedding packages. Braeside offers three packages: a Ceremony-Only option within the chapel or gardens for the ceremony and photos, a venue hire only option, and the Grand Package Ceremony and Reception Package that caters for up to 120 guests.
  • Multiple catering options. Choose from Braeside’s Cocktail, Alternate Drop, Feasting or Street Festival Options

The most amazing venue. The staff go out of their way to make it the most stress free day. The grounds are immaculate and very well kept. Tahnee is so easy going and is so prompt with emails and phone calls. Everyone one of my guests loved the venue. There is so many photo locations on the grounds there. I could not recommended a better location to say I DO. The Braeside made my fairytale wedding become a reality. Thank you so much. Kathryn

From the moment we walked in to Braeside we fell in love. Meeting Tahnee and the Braeside team confirmed with us that was we were in good hands and knew they would ensure our day was even more special then we could imagine! Tahnee always had an answer to our questions and didn't hesitate to pass on her advice about ideas and options we could consider to make the day extra special. We loved that about Braeside. They always knew exactly what was needed and when, while making sure that they captured our choices. Our day ran absolutely perfectly and know that a lot of that was due to the Braeside team. Nothing was too much of an effort and they were always 2 steps ahead - making sure us and our guests had what we needed allowing us to relax and enjoy the day and evening. We are so pleased that Braeside is where we chose for our wedding ceremony and reception and so happy that our memories of the most perfect day of our lives will include their surroundings.

Everything was fantastic! 10/10! They made the experience so personal and they were always there to help when needed. The venue was immaculately clean and we had no complaints about the service.

Thank you Alex for your kind words and beautiful review! We are so happy to hear you had a great wedding day experience. All the best for many happy years!

Sam and the team at Braeside were amazing! We came to Sam two weeks out from our dream wedding date after having to postpone our previously booked wedding at another estate (thanks COVID) - she took charge and made it happen in 2 weeks! From the venue setting and staging through to a 3 course meal for our elopement style wedding for 4 everything was beautifully planned, arranged and organised to a tee! We cannot thank Sam and her team enough for all the hard work that was done in such a small timeframe, her dedication and love for the job really shone through and nothing seemed too much for her to handle. Sam and the team at Braeside are amazing at what they do, this accompanied with a breathtaking estate with picturesque views means these guys should be on your list to check out! We loved every second!

We came across Braeside when searching for a new wedding venue after having to change our original plans due to border closures. It was the perfect venue for our intimate ceremony and garden drinks, and we couldn't be happier with how the day went. Sam went over and above prior to the wedding and on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly, we were happy and relaxed, and our guests had a great time. We would recommend Braeside in a heartbeat as a fantastic venue for big or small weddings.

22 Aug 2021

The most beautiful of venues with the quaintest of chapels and amazing location for photos. The service from start to finish was exceptional. The owner/Venue Manager, Samantha went above and beyond in the pre-planning, rehearsal and the wedding itself. We highly recommend this venue and the warm, professional service provided by Samantha and her team, to anyone planning their special day.

Braeside caught my eye as soon as I saw the pictures online but it was the amazing Samantha & other lovely stuff that really sold it to us! The venue is incredibly beautiful with incredibly appealing prices!! We have just received our photos which are to die for not only because of the view but our smiley, happy and STRESS-FREE faces. For an under 6 week engagement and no wedding planner Braeside staff especially Samantha made the whole process easy and helped accommodate as much as possible when all the covid restrictions kept changing. It was so stunning and carefree that my Aunty who had even sent out the invitation and made a deposit for her wedding in March 2022 at Mt Tambourine decided that Braeside was really the way to go! Changed everything and now her wedding is next week at BRAESIDE!!!

21 Jul 2021

Braeside was sold after we booked our wedding, I was a little apprehensive about this to start but Sam and her amazing team went absolutely above and beyond to make our day perfect. I am so happy we decided to have our day on this picturesque property, but even happier Sam and her family were there to help our families celebrate. I could not recommend Braeside At Gin House Creek Estate enough. Thank you guys for everything. Love Alister & Jamie

Braeside were amazing to work with! From the very first time my husband and I went to view the venue until even after the wedding. The venue is stunning, the staff are so kind and the location is so convenient! It’s like a perfect, secluded hideaway not far from the city. There are also so many gorgeous photo opportunities with different scenes as the estate has so many unique sections - so no need to leave the venue for photos. I’d definitely recommend this venue to anyone getting married 🤍✨

We had our ceremony under their gorgeous tree. Great location and the staff was incredibly helpful. We had amazing photo opportunities and everything was just great.

Could not have asked for a more professional venue and the owners were just superb. We went to over 20 venues and this was way ahead of anyone
