It will now be easier for couples to tie the knot in Noosa, as Council rolls out its new online wedding booking platform.
With the click of a few buttons, it's now easy to search 70-plus council-owned locations such as parks and beaches, check real-time availability for that destination and book and pay for a Noosa ceremony location.
In response to an increase in demand for online wedding applications, Council partnered with Attekus to create the purpose-built government platform.
Property Manager Clint Irwin said the new portal will make managing the hundreds of bookings each year, a lot easier.
"Until now, customers had to enquire first to see if a location was available before then making the booking. Customers can now check a public space and venue availability in their own time and receive faster Council approval.
"The new booking portal means wedding parties and wedding organisers can now secure and pay for their dream Noosa wedding location in just a couple of minutes."
The platform also includes images and maps for various Council-owned parks and facilities at those locations.
"We have included some great images of each location so customers can get a real feel for each venue.
"Noosa Shire is host to over three hundred weddings every year. With this new portal, we'll be able to make it easier for couples to book their dream location."
Street stall and banner bookings can also be made through the same new booking portal and temporary event applications are expected to go online later in 2020.
