Two Brides Celebrate Marriage Equality

With Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

Two Brides Celebrate Marriage Equality

This light filled romantic styled shoot took place on the banks of the Brisbane river just along from the stunning waterfront venue, Medley Cafe with real couple Fiona and Megan. Created to showcase the contrast of simple pure white daytime styling and to showcase Brisbane wedding professionals that support marriage equality and are committed to providing same-sex couples with an exceptional experience.

Despite being new to being new to being professional captured, real couple Fiona and Megan shared the most beautiful love filled connection. 

The shoot began with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants guiding the couple through a ceremony, amidst the all-white ceremony set up created by Brisbane Wedding Decorators, with a simple white arbour draped with hanging lengths of fresh orchids and ivory rose heads, perfectly framing the loved-up two brides.

Low boxed white fresh floral arrangements lined the fresh rose petal aisle and the custom laser etched wooden sign by Rustic at Heart created the perfect welcome, and set the tone for a relaxed and enjoyable day. 

Simple coordinated greenery bouquets were created by Flora Organika with a combination of natives and textured botanicals, which looked and smelt divine.  

The brides looked spectacular in their beautiful Goddess by Nature Chloe and Celeste gowns, with intricate detailing and playful low backs. The elegant custom-made jewellery by Redki completed the look perfectly. 

Brightly coloured confetti cannons were let off by Celebrant Jamie as the gorgeous brides made their way back down the aisle together, which really brought the celebration of marriage equality to life, hence naming this shoot: two brides celebrate marriage equality!

Gorgeous Brisbane waterfront venue Medley Café & Restaurant was the perfect spot for the styled reception luncheon, with gorgeous stationary and place names designed by the talented creative at Rustic at Heart and how adorable are the Mrs and Mrs Chair signs by Brisbane Wedding Decorators on the gorgeous clear ghost chairs!  

 

We are thrilled to announce these lovely girls got engaged shortly after the shoot took place and we wish them every happiness for a marriage as beautiful as their wedding will no doubt be.

“You were such a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy by sending us the guide to work out our vows and the ceremony run sheet made it easy for us to work out how the ceremony would unfold. 

We had a fantastic wedding! You made the guests laugh and the ceremony took just the right amount of time 🙂

Brisbane same-sex wedding with Celebrant Cara Hodge

Congratulations to the new Mr & Mr!

The warm and fuzzies of this Brisbane same-sex wedding ceremony with these two happy grooms were off the charts! The happy couple wed in a short and simple, small and intimate ceremony surrounded by close friends on a gorgeous autumn afternoon at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

Brisbane Celebrant Cara Hodge with the two grooms.

It’s a very exciting time to be in the wedding industry, particularly as Celebrants we now get to say the words “marriage according to the law in Australia is between TWO PEOPLE’… “

These two words that so many people have longed to hear for so long, now result in cheers, applause and even goose bumps from those present (myself included!).

With just a slight change of wording, the Celebrants mandatory wording has suddenly become celebratory!

Being a Celebrant I feel incredibly grateful that I get to spend my weekends (and often week days) amongst so much happiness with the loveliest of people.

If you are looking for a Celebrant for your wedding, same-sex  or otherwise Cara from Brisbane City Celebrants would love to hear from you.
