August 2018

The Marriott in gold coast is a stunning venue with staff that makes your wedding planning a breeze and helps the day run smoothly. Louise and her entire staff are a joy to work with. If there is something you are forgetting they have it covered. We worked mainly with Louise, and she was very responsive and very helpful in answering all of my questions. They do a complete walk through with you, a food tasting a couple weeks before the wedding, which really puts you at ease. The food, service, set up on the our wedding day was amazing and we received so many compliments from the guests. It is all the small and big things that they do that really make this the perfect wedding venue.

Public holidays and surcharges?

I'm planning a wedding and my mum thinks Australia day is a great day to get married. Wedding is Jan 2019. Australia day is Saturday and Saturday is a little expensive for my partners family. We were considering the Sunday 27th and the next Monday is the Australia day public holiday Is there any surcharges on Sundays or public holiday long weekends? We just don't want to be swamped in surcharges and have a super expensive wedding

JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa

Hi Daniela,

What a great question and idea.

Should you wish to have your event on the public holiday, the surchage would be 15%. However, should you wish to have it on the Sunday (which isn't the public holiday) there would be no additional surcharge.

We would love the opportuninity to discuss this with you further. Please kindly contact our Wedding and Events Specialist - Sara Fraser and she can personally assist with any queries.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,
