Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Weddings

After photographing many Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Weddings and elopements over the past few years, I built this wedding guide to share everything I learned about having your wedding day at this gorgeous Gold Coast Wedding Venue.

The Glass Chapel

There are many options for wedding venues on the Gold Coast but none of them has a gorgeous Glass Chapel like Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove. This award-winning Chapel can seat up to 80 guests who will enjoy your beautiful wedding ceremony overlooking the picturesque Coomera River.

Wedding Photo Locations at Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove

This stunning Gold Coast resort has many gorgeous spots for your wedding photos.

The Chapel

Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove’s Glass Chapel offers a serene backdrop for you to become one in front of family & friends during your wedding ceremony. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Coomera river, this Glass Chapel embodies contemporary elegance, with soft white marble tiles throughout and silk flower arrangements at every angle. The Chapel offers sleek contemporary features with a glass-top registry table centred at the altar, whilst seating up to 80 guests.

The Fountain Terrace

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and manicured lawns, with the lagoon as the backdrop, The Fountain Terrace is an elegant outdoor ceremony or reception venue. This beautiful corner of the venue is probably one of my favourites spots for wedding photos.

Marina Lawn

With a scenic backdrop, the Marina Lawn is a beautiful open-air venue perfect for throwing a garden or vintage-themed celebration overlooking the Coomera River.

The Wedding Reception

Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort offers multiple spaces for your wedding reception, from the Grange to the Fireplace Restaurant to the beautiful outdoor Fountain Terrace reception.

The Grange

With its rustic and modern feel, this gorgeous room is one of my favourite reception rooms at the Intercontinental. The Grange can seat up to 170 guests

The Fireplace

The resort’s signature restaurant is also a very popular choice for the wedding reception at the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove. If you are after a more intimate reception venue this is probably the best option.

The Terrace

If you are considering a small reception with up to 40 guests and love the idea of having an outdoor reception, the stunning Pergola Terrace is a great option
