Incorporating cultural elements into your unique wedding celebration

Personalised Wedding Themes

While many couples follow current trends when choosing their wedding theme, some creative folks opt for a uniquely individual approach. Choosing a personalised wedding theme that reflects your shared passions, interests, or experiences, makes for a special and memorable celebration.

Our favourite unique wedding at the Gold Coast Farm House has to be our Star Wars lovers. Emily and Haydyn chose May 4th, to live out their Star Wars dream. Their wedding was an elegant reimagining of Padme’s nuptials, with a modern twist.

Unconventional Ceremony Settings

Couples are drawn to the Gold Coast for their weddings because of the beautiful natural surrounds. The Farm House offers multiple locations for wedding ceremonies with a breathtaking backdrop. Choose from lakeside nuptials, ceremonies under ancient tree canopies, or utilise the built additions like the pergola or the pier.

Non-traditional Venues

The Gold Coast Farm House is a popular wedding venue for couples looking for an alternative to traditional locations. Outdoor spaces in nature offer a visually stunning backdrop for a wedding celebration. They also create a sense of calm, ensuring the celebration is a relaxed and stress-free affair.

Creative Invitations and Stationery

Invitations set the scene for your celebrations. Create a lasting impression with a unique approach that reflects your personality and wedding theme. Electronic invites allow you to play with interactive elements or use custom illustrations or handcrafted details for your paper invitations. For a truly eco friendly approach, choose invitations that are imbedded with seeds that you can plant!

Customised Wedding Attire

Customised wedding attire is becoming increasingly popular. This can be done in many ways. You can literally customise your clothing with embroidered details, such as the date of your wedding or your names. Embrace the beauty of your cultural heritage with elements that celebrate and showcase who you are.

Interactive Guest Experiences

A memorable wedding is one where guests feel like they are part of the action. Interactive experiences ensure your guests are entertained and made to feel included. Fun ideas include games, photo booths, Polaroids or disposable cameras, and commemorative signing tables. You can even include animals such as alpacas for guests to interact with.

Send your guests home with a small gift that they will truly treasure. Little potted plants, personalised candles, or bottled preserves are all usable items that your guests will love. Edible treats are always welcome or a hangover cure kit might be more your style. Whatever you choose to give, consider the environmental impact and reusability.

Offbeat Entertainment

Entertain you guests with something out of the ordinary. Aerial performers, fire dancers, live art installations, or surprise flash mobs are all unique ways to wow your guests. With so many creative performance artists, it’s easy to find alternative entertainment to create a memorable celebration for you and your guests.

Signature Cocktails & Food Stations

We love a signature cocktail to celebrate a new, loving union. Work with a drinks expert to create a unique cocktail to commemorate your marriage with your loved ones. Interactive food stations are another way to inject a unique spin when it comes to catering. DIY food bars including dessert stations are becoming a popular way to involve your guests and offer a variety of delicious treats.

Unexpected Décor Elements

Move away from traditional wedding décor and include some surprising and eye catching elements. Hanging floral installations, vintage furniture pieces, neon signage, and interactive art displays are just some of the ways to dress up your space. Whatever you choose, make sure your décor reflects your personal style and interests.
