An amazing testimonial from start to finish…

“WOW! What an amazing and wonderful day we had on Saturday, as we celebrated our dreamy wedding with yourself and the incredible staff at ‘Island Hideaway’. Rainbow, you have been magnificent and a shining light that has helped us through the stressful storm of planning a wedding, which was everything that we could have ever imagined.

When we first heard of ‘Island Hideaway’ and watched the promotional videos, which gave us goosebumps. We were extremely excited to attend the open day. As we walked down the jetty leading to the beautiful big boat, we imagined the feeling our guests would have before getting to the island. You greeted us there for the first time and all of the staff were so genuine and polite, the enthusiasm you had to making this experience amazing was very evident. Standing at the front of the boat, with the cool breeze blowing in our faces, as we embraced the beauty of the Gold Coast’s Broadwater, only to arrive at gorgeous island frontage of ‘Island Hideaway’. The whole venue was immaculate, with a calm and tropical atmosphere that was child friendly, rustic and everything we could have hoped of the place we dreamed about for our wedding. You spoke with confidence, which reassured us that our special day would be perfect and the personal attention that you gave us on that day was first class.

We knew once we had booked the venue, that the stressful planning was ahead of us. We cannot express more about what a pleasure and joyful experience it was to organise everything we hoped for on the big day. From the beginning, you had it all sorted, introducing us to the incredible celebrant David Berry, who was such a kind hearted man that went far and above his role as a celebrant. Also, it was very cool to be married by a Mr Olympia bodybuilding legend. The other important parts to the day were also easily done with trust that these wonderful people were the best at their job. Flowers by Keran were beautiful and Follet Photography was outstanding. All of Hannah’s friends would ask her “why are you so relaxed and not stressed?” and she would respond that everything is taken care of. Your experience and knowledge of every single little detail was superb and made everything so easy for us. Things that we didn’t even think of were brought to our attention and every suggestion you made, worked out perfect. We could not imagine planning a wedding without your professionalism and expertise.

Well the big day had arrived, with the excitement of the celebration you made us feel at ease and even your text messages that morning explaining how everything was ready, with support or question just a call or message away really ensured that we were focused on enjoying the day. As we both arrived at the island and greeted by yourself and Kimberly, we were instantly relaxed knew we were in good hands for the big day. Everything went exactly to plan, with the coordination of the music, ceremony and all the way to the introductions to the reception room.  The room was set out beautifully and the garden was like a dream. We understand how hand it is to organise all of the guests, especially after they had a few drinks and you did a tremendous job. The night was perfect! Everything we ever imagined and we had guests from all over the world saying how magical it was and how it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We wanted to also thank Kimberly for her sweet nature and comforting vibe.  She went out of her way to make sure we were both happy, always checking we had a drink and that we were happy with how the evening was flowing. The main bartender was also so welcoming, and his outstanding service carried through all night until we were back at the marina.

Rainbow, we thank you so much for making this the incredible wedding, which we had both dreamed of for so long. We cannot speak highly enough of you and your team! The personalised effort you gave to us was more than impressive and as we reflect on how wonderful the day was, we want to express our gratitude and the complete happiness you have provided to us and all of our guests. You and the team are AMAZING and we wish you all the best with the exciting times you have ahead.”
