The Marriott in gold coast is a stunning venue with staff that makes your wedding planning a breeze and helps the day run smoothly. Louise and her entire staff are a joy to work with. If there is something you are forgetting they have it covered. We worked mainly with Louise, and she was very responsive and very helpful in answering all of my questions. They do a complete walk through with you, a food tasting a couple weeks before the wedding, which really puts you at ease. The food, service, set up on the our wedding day was amazing and we received so many compliments from the guests. It is all the small and big things that they do that really make this the perfect wedding venue.
