Emily & Stanley – Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove

28th of January 2018 – Gold Coast Wedding 

The glass chapel is probably one of the most popular venue for couples to get married in the South East Queensland area. It’s only 40 minutes drive from Brisbane and 2o minutes from Gold Coast.

Emily and Stanley chose this venue because they wanted to share their day with friends & families coming from all over the globe. It was a great way to enjoy a perfect Queensland summer. We had a little bit of shower around mid day but nothing can stop them from having an awesome time. The traditional tea ceremony was performed in the morning. It started with few funny games before the groom was granted access to the bride. The bride was wearing a stunning traditional red gown in honour of their culture, the style of this gown can be a better outfit for the tea ceremony because it’s smaller compare to some white gown with a longer train. At the tea ceremony, the bride and groom give tea to the parents and relatives, this is probably the most emotional moment for the bride’s parents as this is the “giving away of bride” in their culture. Often the tears were shed when the parents give words of encouragement and the bride say thank you to the parents. After the tea ceremony they went from the bride side to the groom side to formally meet the family and performed another tea ceremony. When planning a wedding with cultural elements, the timing becomes critical but we think the most important thing for any couple that’s planning their wedding is to relax and have fun. Things might not always go according to the schedule but it’s all good as long as everyone’s having a great time!
