Bec & Callum's Beautiful Glass Chapel Wedding
Bec and Callum tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony at the Intercontinental Cove Sanctuary Hotel in 2018. This beautiful wedding followed a classy and modern theme that was full of romance. We sat down with Bec, the lovely bride, to find out a little bit more about their love story and big day! Take a look into this gorgeous glass chapel wedding…
How did you and your husband meet?
“Callum and I met about ten years ago at a music festival. Our first date started off as breakfast and then we enjoyed each other’s company so much that we ended up having lunch and then dinner together!”
“Our proposal was super relaxed. We had a picnic in the gorgeous Gold Coast hinterland and at the very end of the day he proposed.”
Is there a particular reason as to why you chose your venue?
“We live nearby and loved the area. The glass chapel sealed the deal for us, oh, and did I mention the food there is AMAZING! All of the staff were incredible and couldn't do enough to help.”
Was there a theme? Tell us about the décor!
Bec and Callum decided to opt for a modern and classy themed wedding! The glass chapel added a breathtaking dimension to the modern feel and the abundance of white roses filled the room with an air of romance. The Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove was the perfect venue; from the chapel to the stunning paved gardens, and romantic ball room. The reception area was lit up with intricate fairy lights to create a soft and romantic atmosphere where guests could relax and celebrate the night away. The colour scheme was a mix of neutrals and striking greens which felt refreshing and beautiful.
Any extra details?
The white Triumph Renown made for a gorgeous wedding car and really added something special to the wedding photographs too! This classic car really conveyed the classy vibe of the big day and its white colour made it feel modern and romantic – perfectly in fit with Bec and Callums big day.
Your favourite part of the wedding?
“I don't think we can name just one. I think we were both just happy once we were at the altar. We were incredibly lucky that everything went according to plan (well not everything… the boys had to "iron out" their suits that morning but thought it was best to keep it from me until we were on our honeymoon!) I guess the best part was having all of our closest friends and family with us on our big day.”
Tell us about the dress!
“I had always had my heart set on a mermaid gown. It fit perfectly and I felt amazing in it. After searching all over the coast and in Brisbane for the perfect dress I had made a trip to Sydney to find something. That trip was unsuccessful and so I made another trip to Melbourne in my search (a task which felt like it was never going to end)! I visited both boutiques (Brunswick and Armadale) and I realised that I had gone from not being able to find anything I liked to having too many choices.
I finally decided on the gown about 2 hours before my flight left. I didn't have enough time to purchase the gown then and there so the ladies quickly took my measurements and took down the details of the dress and I called them on the Monday to order it. I even ordered additional tulle and lace so that we could customize it (aka - the sleeves) and lacing detail on the décolletage.”
Tips for brides-to-be!
“RELAX! Just enjoy the day. Don't let little things get to you in the lead up or on the morning of. At the end of the day, if you are married that's all that matters.”
