InterContinental Sanctuary Cove, is where Philip and Ceris chose to have their stunning wedding experience. 

Phil and Ceris chose us to Photograph and Film their special day and this wedding was nothing short of amazing! With the Bride and Groom being members of a Premier Rock Band, I knew this wedding would be something special! A lighting show that was just spectacular, a number of amazing singers, musicians and divine sounding people, then the main act came on with the Bride and Groom taking to the stage with their band The Runes.

What a night! Complete with a first dance right out of Pulp Fiction.

Is there a special reason you chose this venue

We fell in love with The Grange at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove, as this room is set away from the main hotel building & a perfect live music venue.

Phil & I met through music. We both play in a band called Runes. Phil plays Bass & I play Sax, Keyboard, Flute & vocals.
