Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove Wedding Open Day

Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove invites all brides-to-be to experience a five star wedding venue first-hand at the Wedding Open Day on Sunday, 29 April 2012. From 10am to 3pm, reminisce on the one year anniversary of The Royal Wedding and discover exactly how to make your wedding fit for royalty. View the extensive range of function spaces available at Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove, from the grand through to the more intimate, and be seduced by this stunning resort.

With all ceremony and reception venues fully set, visualise how the spaces can be transformed and consider options such as an outdoor affair or perhaps a progressive event through several settings.

Imagine a classic ceremony in the gorgeous Wedding Chapel, seating 80 guests and featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out over the picturesque Coomera River, or picture your special service set amongst the lush gardens and grounds. For your reception, the Balinese style lagoon-side pavilion captures a tropical essence while the magnificent atmosphere of The Grange denotes the more traditional. With something to suit the tastes of every bride at Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove, you will be saying ‘I do’ before even walking down the aisle.

If your wedding calls for something more intimate, you can’t go past award-winning signature restaurant The Fireplace, seating up to 60 guests in amongst the stunning solid timber furniture. With cherry wood wine cabinets and a unique custom built wood-fired oven, The Fireplace has charm and character.

Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove’s expert and dedicated team of wedding specialists will be on site to guide you through the resort and gain a feel for what sort of bride you are, and therefore what sort of wedding is perfect for you.

At 2pm enjoy the latest in bridal fashion with a runway parade featuring exquisite designs from Darb Bridal Couture and Jemae Australia by Paula Tangredi. Sip on a glass of sparkling while you view the fashions and relax, as Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove knows planning your wedding can send you into a spin.

Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove has also invited their coveted list of professional wedding suppliers to showcase their wares on the day, including photographers, hair and make-up artists, musicians and many more. With only a $5 entry fee, it’s a small price to pay for the wedding of your dreams.

Wedding packages at Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove can be tailored to suit a bride’s every need. Special accommodation rates are available for guests who are interested in staying overnight and the newly refurbished Manor and Federation suites are ideal for the newlyweds.

Plates for Mates – Diners Set For Fantastic Cause

Whether it’s a gourmet burger and a beer at The Laneway, a casual bistro lunch of chargrilled free range spatchcock, soft parmesan polenta, sage, almond and brown butter at The Euro, or a degustation dinner showcasing intricate and carefully crafted food flavours at Urbane, during April each of these dining experiences will help raise funds for Queensland chef Matt Golinski through the Plates for Mates initiative. 

Plates for Mates is a national fundraising event conceived by a group of Australia’s leading chefs to support friend, Matt Golinski. Matt tragically lost his wife, Rachael and their three daughters in a home fire on Boxing Day 2011. Matt sustained third degree burns to over 40% of his body and until recently was in a medically induced coma at RBWB.
Brisbane’s multi-award winning Urbane Restaurant, its bistro sister The Euro and the uber cool The Laneway are leading the charge in supporting Plates for Mates

The initiative has been co-ordinated by Janelle Bloom, Manu Feildel, George Calombaris, Damian Heads, Gary Mehigan and Alastair McLeod – as an urgent call to arms to raise funds for the Matthew Golinski Recovery Fund and the McComb Foundation.
