A few weekends ago now we were lucky enough to be apart of the Marriott Surfers Paradise Wedding Open day. Inclusive of many wonderful vendors such as

- Love Notes

- W Events Group

- Holly Rose Couture

- A Little Cake Place

Featuring a gorgeous wedding reception set up in one of Marriott 's spacious events rooms by W Events Group, they yet again have surprised me with another unique set up. The creativity of this amazing group never disappoints. W Events group had also set up a beautiful wedding ceremony upstairs in another of the Marriott reception rooms which is a great wet weather option, always good to know you have back up! Displaying a beautiful ceremony which was featured in another of the W events groups styling for the Marriott that we were lucky enough to shoot a few months ago. 

Moving on, the day was great! with yummy little treats that were impossible to say no to supplied by Marriott it gave us the little sugar hit we needed! Sarah & Donna  did a great job of putting together the Marriott's very first wedding open day. 

Throughout the course of this day we had a little competition going, to win $1000 off you're wedding all you had to do was write down few simple details and put them in the glass box. We also had a few runner ups as we couldn't let the good deal pass anyone by! 

All in all we had a great day mingling with some other wedding vendors and displaying our favourite weddings. We thank the Marriott for having us & cant wait for the next one!! 


Until next time…

Heading down to the chapel in preparation for Meagan's arrival you could see just how excited everyone was to see the beautiful bride. The ceremony was just perfect, Announcing Mr & Mrs Boyce for the first time, the entire chapel stood and cheered for them as they walked back down the isle as husband & wife.

Intercontinental Wedding Photo & Video - Sanctuary Cove - Gold Coast, Russ & Tiare

Weddings really have changed a lot over the last 20 years look at back my parents wedding photos and video and most from this era. They all seem to be very similar but with different people. I love that the weddings of today are a reflection of the couple and also friends and family. Russ & Tiare had such a great mix of tradition with different cultures and dances. It was a very fun day for all invloved which I also think reflects our couple. The way they look at each other tells the other side of the story the passion and love deep with in there eyes.

My name is Rob and I was lucky enough to have been part of the J'adore team for the day. The venue for the day is one of my favorites the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove which is on the Gold Coast. It is such a great all in one venue with great accommodation, ceremony, photos and reception options. The morning went very smooth with both the bride are grooms preparation being covered with photo and video. The ceremony was then at the glass chapel which is almost a famous landmark on the Gold Coast. I love ceremonies because it's one of the only days men are expected and allowed to get emotional and Russ didn't disappoint when Tiare reached the end of the isle arm in arm with her father. I really do love these moments and generally end up shedding a tear or 2 myself as it's beautiful to see love at its purest moments. 

After the ceremony we took the opportunity to wonder around the Intercontinental grounds with the ocean, gardens and water features there is a great selection of options to work with. I will let you be the judge as you view the selection of images we have included as our story images in the blog.

The reception venue was at The Grange. Such a great spot as you can see everything from anywhere in the room. So speeches and dance etc gives everybody a front row seat as previously mentioned the reception was a lot of fun with some dancers who got the crowd involved. Once the formalities where over it seemed like the whole group hit the dance floor. It was a great atmosphere. We received a great response from Russ & Tiare when we sent them there wedding video and images, it really does mean so much when we get amazing feedback from our clients. We hope you enjoy aswell. I would love to hear some of your feedback aswell.

Chat to you all soon
