The Only Wedding Checklist You’ll Ever Need

With a ring on your finger and a heart full of love, you’ve chosen to celebrate your special day with us at Gold Coast Farm House. We are so excited to have you and to make your day as magical as it can be. 

According to recent study by Zola, of 500 respondents, 96% stressed out while planning their wedding. That's not all though. 40% said wedding planning was "extremely hard".

So Why are we telling you this?

Additionally, we know that wedding planning can be stressful and seemingly never-ending, so we have compiled a wedding planning checklist for you, to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible and you can celebrate your night under the hinterland stars with ease.

As part of your wedding package, we provide you with a day of wedding coordinator, to ensure all vendors know where they are going and guests don’t get lost, so you can celebrate stress-free.
