Ceremony Styling by Wishes Events at The Marriott Hotel & Spa Surfers Paradise - Gold Coast

Wednesday 3rd of April we had the wonderful pleasure of photographing & videoing the set up of not just 1, but 3 wedding ceremonies styled by Wishes Events, at the Marriott hotel & spa Gold Coast. 

Arriving at 1pm as per usual the Wishes Events team is always getting straight into it, with the set up of style 1 well underway we started snapping away. First styling of the day was called ‘White L’amor’, which through our lens we saw to be a perfect representation of their creation. With beautiful crystal like chairs, as well as the crystal feature hanging centred on the arbor with crystal ascents dropping down it was picturesque. White runway, white chiffon draped from the arbor also featuring a sequent cover for the bride & grooms table. 

Set up two was no less extravagant, with a ‘Tropical Elegance’ theme it fit very well into the surrounding environment filled with palms & waterfalls. Featuring a wooden arbor & stunning floral decorations it was an amazing set up. Getting the drone up we got some individual shots of each styling sky high, as well as some footage from up above we are very excited to be displaying. 

As soon as the photos had been taken the crew got started on style No#3. This style was called ‘Bohemian Beauty’ & was quite the unique setting, with a macrame decoration hanging from the wooden arbor this styling was just as beautiful as the last. Wooden chairs lining the runway, & a gorgeous table cover similar to macrame hanging covering the bride & grooms table accompanied by a light pink silk sheet underneath completed this set up beautifully. 

Throughout the process we had Sarah the wedding coordinator from The Marriott come down to have a sneak peak at what was going on, she was loving what the team had created & as were we. It was now time for the pack up to begin & to say our goodbyes to the wonderful team at
