Orleigh park wedding with a dog ring bearer

Orleigh park wedding with a dog ring bearer

Needless to say dog loving Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants loved being a part of this Orleigh Park wedding with the couples dog Diego playing the very important role of ring bearer for the happy couple.

Bride and Groom: Robyn and Tom

Wedding Ceremony Location: Orleigh Park, West End, Brisbane

Tell us about your ceremony:

We were at a complete loss when it came time to decide on a location for our wedding. While we really liked the greenery of the hinterland, we really wanted somewhere close to the city. Orleigh Park provided the perfect setting with massive trees framing the river setting and just 10 minutes from the city.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and relaxed setting.

Reception Location:

South Brisbane Boat Club

Tell us about your reception:

It was really important for us to have the reception as close as possible to the ceremony. The boat hall was in a great location – right on the river and next to our wedding ceremony location, Orleigh Park.

The inside of the hall provided so much character and provided a lovely setting with the windows opened to make the most of the river views. The best thing about the hall is that we were able to do everything the way we wanted.

While it was a bit more work decorating and organising catering, alcohol and the rest, it was definitely worth it!

Orleigh Park Wedding Celebrant Jamie Eastgate5

What we loved:

Neither of us are very traditional which can be a bit of an issue when organising a wedding. So when we started planning we decided not to do anything that made us uncomfortable (the first dance, bouquet throwing and garter toss all ended up getting scrapped).

We loved being able to surprise everyone by making our day uniquely ‘us’. It was great having a relaxed wedding where there was no pressure, instead the focus was on celebrating with family and friends.

Describe your experience with Jamie from Brisbane City Celebrants:

When it came to planning the ceremony, we really didn’t have a clue what we were meant to do. The only thing we were certain of is that we wanted it to be personalised and short. Jamie was great in helping two absolutely clueless (and slightly stressed) newbies create the perfect ceremony.

Being able to choose the wording we wanted along with the guidance of the ceremony run sheet made planning the ceremony far easier than we thought it would be.

Jamie, thank you for all your help in making our wedding day perfect. We were so pleased to be able to do everything our way and I can honestly say ours was the best wedding I have been to so far!

You really helped to take some of the stress out of the day, it was great knowing that everything was taken care of for the ceremony and all we had to do was show up – which was nerve-racking enough!

Your advice to bride and grooms to be:

Don’t let anyone pressure you in to doing what doesn’t feel right. It’s also very easy to keep pushing out the budget. We decided to make budgeting easier by spending the most money on things that would be seen in our wedding photos later on.

The rest of those smaller details (while nice) probably won’t be remembered by your guests when they go home.

A stunning summer garden wedding

A Stunning Summer Garden Wedding

Nessa and Tyrone wed in a heartfelt wedding ceremony at a private property in Indooroopilly. The property was styled with vibrant cheerful colours and large cushions  which created the perfect vibe for relaxed and social celebrations.

As it was a hot summers day, the ceremony took place amongst the shade of a large mango tree, decorated with hanging glass bottles with brightly coloured flowers.

Two excited flower girls led the bride down the aisle to her beaming groom, where they held hands and locked eyes as their ceremony commenced.

Their garden ceremony was meaningful and heartfelt and the couple shared some of the funniest vows I’ve ever heard, before exchanging rings and sealing the deal with their first kiss as husband and wife.

“Thanks a mil Jamie for all you did to make our day perfect!’

A Relaxed & Modern State Library of QLD Wedding

A Relaxed & Modern State Library of QLD Wedding

With Celebrant Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants

I just love it when couples do their wedding their way, for couples like Christine and Ed that meant putting tradition aside and creating a day that could enjoy every moment of together.

state-library-of-qld-wedding-celebrant

Their black tie wedding ceremony and reception took place at the grand State Library of QLD in South Brisbane. The couples modern wedding commenced with both the bride and groom welcoming the guests as they arrived, which really set the tone for the relaxed vibe.

state-library-of-qld-wedding-celebrant3

The couple opted not to have a bridal party, and Christine decided not to have a wedding bouquet as she simply didn’t feel the need to have one. They did however have Francescas Flowers install a dramatic hanging Monstera cheese plant leaf display and the greenery worked perfectly with the high ceilings of the Terrace Room.

When the ceremony time arrived, the guests were seated and the bride and groom, holding hands took a relaxed stroll down the aisle together before turning to face each other as the ceremony commenced.

The lovely couple couldn’t take their eyes off each other as they enjoyed their short, sweet and authentic ceremony. They could barely contain their excitement when I pronounced them husband and wife!

The happy newlyweds kindly left a 5 star review on Brisbane City Celebrants Facebook Page stating “Thank you Cara for being our Celebrant, everything was wonderful!”

Hannah and Luke had the dynamic duo from Lyndal Carmichael Photography capture their ‘location’ photos, before the ceremony took place, which meant they could stay and celebrate with their guests after the ceremony. The also meant they could both be there to greet guests as they arrived.

I was so excited when Mel and Steve asked me to be their Celebrant for their Brisbane Racing Club Wedding and I was so happy to see this 5 star review pop up just days after their wedding.

Jamie did a fantastic job as the celebrant for our recent wedding. He has a very calming nature and great way with words to ensure we had the ceremony we had hoped for. Thanks Jamie for an excellent job!”

This grand venue is off the beaten track, but more importantly the guests knew they were backing a winning couple! (ok, we’ll quit horsing with the racing puns).

Brisbane Golf Club wedding with a very special ring bearer

Brisbane Golf Club wedding with a very special ring bearer

With Celebrant Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants

This Brisbane Golf Club wedding ceremony was such a special wedding to be the Celebrant for. The happy couple have so much love for their sweet little boy and it’s so easy to see why, not only is he the cutest little thing, but his excitement and energy on the day was through the roof.

I love how the beautiful bride had so much fun including him in the getting ready photos (playing peek-a boo beneath her gown) and how he enthusiastically sprinted down the aisle faster than his little legs could carry him with the ring cushion, thankfully those rings were firmly tied to the ring cushion.

If you are looking for ideas to include children in your wedding Brisbane City Celebrants would love to hear from you. In the meantime, enjoy this gorgeous love filled wedding with the sweetest little ring bearer.

While most of the weddings I perform are in the Brisbane area, however from time to time Brisbane based couples invite me to officiate their wedding ceremonies at the Gold Coast, like this wedding at the RACV Royal Pines Resort which was captured by the lovely Prue Franzmann Photography.

The resort is just 12km from the Gold Coasts famous beaches and has its very own wedding chapel with stain glass windows and Italian marble flooring, it seats up to 100 guests. As you will see from these happy newlyweds photos the gardens offer endless photo opportunities so you don’t even need to leave the resort for your location photos.
