A totally free, self-guided tour of the Tweed Coast Weddings venues, designed to showcase our beautiful Tweed Coast region and the creative talents of almost 100 local wedding suppliers.

So much more than your standard wedding expo, this day out wouldn’t be possible without our incredible venues, so we wanted to ensure that you met all of them before you’re in the car on your way through the coast, plus, check out which suppliers will be showcasing where!
