Gosia and Andrew’s stunning summer wedding was held at the prestigious Stones of the Yarra Valley. The elegant and relaxed vibe, paired with these sweet, sweet lovers truly made for an unforgettable day! At Iconic Pictures, we just fell in love with this wedding!

The best man’s speech at the end of the video perfectly summed up the wedding too; “success is getting what you want, and happiness is wanting what you get, I know you both want what you’ve got.”

Ms Chinoiserie Says: Such an elegant wedding – you captured Gosia and Andrew’s love just perfectly!

About Iconic Pictures: We specialise in candid and natural cinematography, dotted with rustic and vintage charm. Our beautiful video captures are filled with the genuine little moments that make a wedding day special, and without pose or direction – they ensure your love is captured in moving picture perfection. Our talented team adore making our couples laugh and cry (tears of the happy variety), and to be able to create ever-lasting memories of their special celebration is exactly why we love what we do.

We do love to be beside the seaside and Sandringham Yacht Club with its contemporary decor and stunning water views may be what you would love too. A gorgeous airy balcony with bay views when it’s sunny and warm, or large expanses of glass sheltering you from the buffeting winds and waves in winter, it cannot be argued that this alone will bring that extra wow factor to your wedding. Add to this a wedding team extraordinaire, an exciting menu of contemporary Australian cuisine and a blank canvas to add your own personality to the decor – and you have a wedding venue that will be just perfect. We find out from Tevany about what makes this venue so special.

Where is Sandringham Yacht Club located?

Sandringham Yacht Club is situated on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay in Sandringham, Victoria.

When couples book their wedding at Sandringham Yacht Club, they have the exclusive use of the Port Phillip Room and adjoining balcony.

Do you have a wedding planner who can assist couples plan their weddings?

We certainly do! Our Event Coordinator Kristine and myself look after the wedding planning here at Sandringham Yacht Club. Once a couple confirms their wedding, we will introduce ourselves and take them through all the stages of the planning process.

Are you able to recommend wedding vendors – for example florists, cake baker – for bridal couples to use? Are you able to coordinate these for the couple?

Of course! We have worked with so many wonderful suppliers over the years and we love nothing more than sharing their beautiful work to help our couples create the perfect wedding day.

At Sandringham Yacht Club we can host ceremonies for up to 150 guests on our Southern Podium, a spacious balcony with gorgeous views of the bay. Should Melbourne’s crazy weather come out to play, we can provide a private area inside the reception room as a wet weather backup option.

For a reception, we can accommodate up to 250 guests with a dance floor inside our Port Phillip Room.

Are you able to suggest décor elements that bridal couples might consider, to make the most of the space?

It is one of our favourite things to do! The Port Phillip Room is a versatile space with neutral colours and tones that allow for endless styles of décor. We get to see so many beautiful weddings on a weekly basis and always share photos and ideas with our couples!

How is your menu served – a la carte, shared platters etc?

We serve canapes on arrival and entrée, main course and dessert are served alternately. Couples can also choose roaming desserts to replace the plated option if they prefer.

When planning the menu with the couple, are you able to advise on drinks to go with each course? Or even plan a signature cocktail to serve?

We offer a number of different beverage packages for our couples to choose from. We can certainly suggest wines to suit their menu selections.

We love signature cocktails! Nothing better than cocktails on arrival to start the fun!

What do you love about your job?

Whilst I love the everyday planning and coordination that comes with my role, my absolute favourite part is seeing everything come together on a wedding day. It makes me so happy to witness the absolute joy on my couples’ faces when the reception room is revealed and to see them celebrating with their family and friends!

How do you celebrate the end of the working week?

I usually finish my working week either craving some relaxation and couch time or wanting to head out for a few drinks myself after being amongst all the fun and celebrations of weddings!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time, I love to read, binge watch TV shows and eat out in Melbourne’s fabulous restaurants!

At Marry Me Movies, we are honoured to film in any location, and Villa Botanica at Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays was a stunning paradise to capture Jerusa & Nicholas’ love story.

As Jerusa explained in her speech, she posted a photo of Whitehaven Beach on Nicholas’ Facebook wall when they first started going out. Eight years later, they spent the day before their wedding at that very beach, savouring the surrounds and marvelling at the full circle of their relationship.
