Kobi and Michael’s Luxury Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort Wedding

“I had never been to the Intercontinental in Sanctuary Cove before and because it was so close to our home we booked an appointment to meet the wedding coordinator and have a look around. The grounds and venue were beautiful and the chapel absolutely took my breath away. I remember looking at Michael as we walked in through the chapel doors, my eyes teared up and I was speechless! Goosebumps don’t lie! At that moment, we knew this was where we would get married.”

“Wedding planning started pretty quickly for us after we were engaged. We were both very excited and were planning on a short engagement. We started scouting locations first, looking at several venues before settling on the Intercontinental at Sanctuary Cove.”

“My wedding dress was the next major purchase, it was really one of a kind and was one of the first that I tried on. It was ordered within three weeks of our engagement! I said yes to the dress and didn’t look back! Most of our key wedding vendors were locked in pretty early too and this made planning very easy and a lot less stressful.”

“I didn’t find wedding planning to be stressful at all! I loved every minute! In fact, I felt like there was a void when it was all over! All of our vendors were brilliant and worked with us every step of the way, even guiding us in the planning process.”

“The best part was seeing everything come together so beautifully on the day. All of the individual elements of the wedding planning process came together perfectly and we were able to make our dream wedding a reality.”

“A lot of family and friends told us that the day goes by so quickly and how easy it is to forget the most memorable moments from the best day of our lives. We decided very early that we wanted to be able to capture the day on video so we could relive all the memories of the day. It was important for us to be able share that experience with our kids when we decide to start a family.”

“The best part of watching the feature film was how perfectly Geoff managed to capture US. The day was documented perfectly, from the pre-wedding celebrations to the reception, but the most magical part was how effortlessly he represented our story and the love we have for each other and our family.”

“I couldn’t imagine not having our wedding video. There were so many beautiful moments on the film that we didn’t notice on the day. So many gestures and very special memories between my husband and I or with our friends and family that can’t be replicated again in that setting.”

“My advice to couples in the process of wedding planning would be to seriously consider making room in your budget for videography. You can relive your wedding in photos, but you can never get a second opportunity to record the special moments with family and friends that made your day so incredible. In years to come, we can look back and cherish those moments, when some of our family and friends may no longer be with us.”

“We did a lot of research on videography and we were looking for a high-quality product from an experienced videographer. We came across Motion Art online and first of all noted the amazing five star ratings from clients.

From the first meeting we were thrilled with Geoff and knew our choice was made.”

“DJ Corey was excellent. We had two separate set ups on site, one on the fountain terrace for pre-dinner drinks and another at our reception venue in the Grange. Everything was seamless. The dance floor was full all night and the party continued until well after midnight.

Celebrant: Married by Jake

“Our celebrant Pastor Jake Smith was brilliant. We had met him previously when I was a bridesmaid for my best friend’s wedding. He had a vibrant and bubbly personality that was commented on by all of our guests. He had a way of making us feel at ease and was a perfect choice for us.”
