It was a beautiful sunny afternoon at Glengariff Historic Estate when Lucy and Matt exchanged their personally written vows. Lucy chose a sleeveless gown with a silk overlay and her bridesmaids wore gorgeous knee length aqua dresses and carried matching singapore orchids. At the conclusion of their ceremony they chose to release two celebration doves from www.weddingdoves.com.au and had two wandering amongst their guests. With guests travelling from the overseas it was a wonderful gathering of family and friends. To add a touch of home for Matt, they decorated each table with a story from each part of Matt’s homeland.

It was the most perfect weather in Mt Tamborine when Suzzee walked the red carpet to marry her dream man, Philip, at The Castle in Tamborine. Suzzee chose a red colour scheme and wore a hand beaded feather headpiece and carried a bouquet of crystals in a flower design. To remember deceased family members they chose a Candle Lighting. The bride is usually the one with tears, but as Philip and Suzzee exchanged their personal vows, Philip shed a few emotional tears. He said he was a softie and the ceremony they chose reflected just that. The ceremony was enhanced with the music of angels by Harpist, Janice Preece.
If you’re looking for that special place to “tie the knot” the Tangalooma Resort on Moreton Island is just beautiful. The Island Resort is just over an hour from Brisbane and under the palms is the perfect backdrop for your ceremony. The spectacular scenery offers the opportunity for the most amazing wedding photos.
Something sweet, for someone sweet.
Having to move away from Brisbane after the floods didn’t stop Heidi organising their wedding at The Spotted Chook in Montville. Heidi was able to organise everything from their home in South Australia and arrived days before the ceremony to complete the finer details. Being a Florist she was so intent in having the perfect bouquet she worked until late into the night to ensure the wedding party has the most spectacular arrangements. Walking down the steps to meet her truly handsome man, Matty, bought a tear to the eye of many guests. The wedding lawn was decorated in an olde world and very romantic theme by local decorator, Trudy Croad of Lovebird Weddings. After the ceremony, Calli B Photographer took the wedding party up to the Glasshouse Mountains to get their spectacular wedding pics.
Beautiful balmy weather beside the Brisbane River was the venue for Kylie and Neil to exchange their vows with a large gathering of family and friends from Australia and across the Tasman. With such busy lives it was hard to get them to sit still long enough to tell me their love story. The day arrived, their story was written, music selected and their guests stood and welcomed Kylie as she walked down the aisle, strewn with coral and cream rose petals, to met her dream man. Her cocktail length tulle wedding gown, embroided with pearls and lace, was perfect against Kylie’s creamy skin. A short veil over her face adorned with tiny crystals finished off her ensemble perfectly. Neil’s Dad, Ian, did a magnificent job as Master of Ceremonies and the ceremony unfolded with their love story giving everyone a chuckle. They danced the night away at Riverlife at Kangaroo Point. A perfect ending to a fairytale romance.
Organising a wedding from overseas can be daunting for some but Philip and Darlene were able to make their intimate ceremony one they would treasure for a lifetime. Guests travelled from southern states as well as from overseas, many commenting on our beautiful weather. Philip’s father, Noel, was the Master of Ceremonies and did a magnificent job ensuring everyone was well looked after in the lead up to their exchange of vows in Brisbane’s north. Philip and Darlene’s daughter, Beatrice, was the life of the ceremony and helped make the day a success.
It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon when Kellie walked through the historic rooms of Newstead House to marry her dream man, Nigel. With the assistance of her two bridesmaids, daughters Ashley and Hannah, she entered the wedding lawn to the sounds of the Bridal March by Wagner. After exchanging vows and receiving a “special blessing” from all their guests, they enjoyed cocktails and canapes on the lawn of Newstead House.
