Venue Details

Ancora, situated on the Tweed River in Tweed Heads, minutes from famous Gold Coast beaches, Snapper Rocks and Rainbow Bay. Water views like no other Tweed Coast Wedding venue, Ancora is a unique and picturesque wedding venue.

Whether you are after an indoor ceremony location or an outdoor ceremony location, Ancora has you covered, with a sheltered open air ceremony location and riverside garden area.

Through the breezeblock entry, inside the reception venue filled with natural light, you can expect high ceilings, hardwood timber flooring, crisp white-panelled walls and floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the water.

In collaboration with UK born Michelin star celebrity chef Matt Kemp, owner Lia Wilson developed Ancora’s signature Mediterranean inspired menu as a result of her romantic Greek island engagement. The acclaimed wedding menus also feature authentic Italian and modern Mexican menus.

Wedding planning is easy at Ancora, with all-inclusive venue packages offering white European bentwood chairs, hand-crafted wooden dining tables, lighting and AV systems. A dedicated function manager and professional wedding team are also on-hand to service your day seamlessly from start to finish, allowing you to truly relax and enjoy every moment of your celebration.

Stunning wedding photo locations, right on Ancora’s doorstep, including Coolangatta beaches, Fingal headland and secluded private islands with lush greenery, Ancora is the perfect waterside wedding venue.
