Green wedding at Rainbow Beach

Rainbow Beach is the perfect location for a natural wedding offering unique locations close to spectacular natural environments.  From a sand between your toes beach ceremony, to a park ceremony complete with white water views right through to a sophisticated penthouse ceremony, there is the perfect spot for you. 

Waterview Bistro adjacent to the Carlo Sandblow offers you the opportunity for some fantastic sunset photos while your guests mingle in the bar awaiting your arrival.  With its award winning dining and modern and sophisticated furnishings is Rainbow Beach's flagship restaurant. Its unique location perched on Rainbow’s highest peak, provides the perfect complement to a beach themed wedding with you and your guests able to take in panoramic views that stretch from the Great Sandy Straits to Fraser Island. The main dining room can seat 60 people comfortably with an adjoining terrace and bar area useful for pre dinner drinks and socialising.

For more ideas for planning a nature-inspired wedding, visit the Australian green wedding directory Natural Weddings. Planning a natural, organic wedding or green event is not only about responsibility to the environment, it’s also about love. Your love for each other, your love for family and friends and your love for the Earth. Your wedding is a great opportunity to affect your extended family and friends by making earth conscious decisions that enhance the natural beauty of the setting.
