A stylish same sex Brisbane wedding

 A stylish same sex Brisbane wedding with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate

It was such an honour to be a part of Paul and Paul’s stylish same sex Brisbane wedding as they celebrated their commitment and happiness by tying the knot in the presence of a large gathering of family and friends that all mean the world to them.

Paul and Paul celebrated their commitment in a glamorous and stylish ceremony at Brisbane’s exquisite Cloudland venue with a dream team of wedding suppliers to ensure their day was nothing short of amazing.

Paul and Paul kindly provided the following glowing testimonial for their Celebrant Jamie Eastgate:

“Our Celebrant Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants was wonderful! He was professional, warm and caring. His ability to speak in front of everyone was perfect and eloquent.

Communication between us and Brisbane City Celebrants was regular and genuine. A personal and sincere interest in your life and how your wedding plans were coming together was apparent and appreciated during our correspondence leading up to our special day. We were so, so, so happy we went with Brisbane City Celebrants!”

Paul and Paul’s tell us about their wedding ceremony:

“We all walked down the aisle paired off, hand in hand with 16 Strings quartet playing ‘I can’t help falling in love’ by Elvis.

16 Strings quartet are amazingly skilled and having them there made the whole ceremony experience feel so much more special.

Having someone play a song for you just feels so much more personal. We were absolutely blown away and so glad we made the choice to have a string quartet.

Our ceremony was sentimental, light hearted, fashionable and in part comical! This perfectly reflects our life together and our relationship, so it was very fitting and very ‘us’. During the ceremony there were both heartfelt tears and roars of laughter, we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

Our Celebrant Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants was wonderful! He was professional, warm and caring. His ability to speak in front of everyone was perfect and eloquent.

Our advice to other couples planning their wedding – Don’t cut any corners! You only want one wedding so do it exactly how you want. We also found it was great for everyone to have the ceremony and reception all at the one venue. Don’t select a service from a provider purely because it’s the cheapest, do your research and make sure you choose the best. It really pays off!

We loved EVERYTHING about our special day!”

Paul and Paul carefully selected an amazing ‘dream team’ of wedding vendors to enable them to turn their dream wedding in to reality, and from their fantastic feedback all their hard work and planning certainly paid off.

We would like to give a very special mention to Studio Impressions Photography who were a dream to work with and kind enough to allow us to share their images here.

We were so excited to hear that Paul and Paul’s immaculately captured wedding was featured in Bride to Be magazine!

The feature shares the story of the surprise proposal that took place at Paul’s 30th birthday party, the romance of sipping on French champagne in Paris while shopping for Paul’s engagement ring at Cartier and how Sex & the City’s Charlotte’s black mermaid style bridesmaid dress was their inspiration for their ‘groomsmaids’.

The connection between the 2 grooms throughout the ceremony was captivating! There were tears, smiles and roars of laughter.

Cloudland was a perfect fit for the owners of a leading Gold Coast hairdressing salon, being fashionable and sophisticated it provided the perfect atmosphere for both their ceremony and reception to take place.

A ceremony full of love and laughter is a recipe for happily ever after. Their love shined throughout the ceremony which was only enhanced by the guests glowing with pride and happiness for the two grooms.

Intimate wedding on a mountain top

With Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants
What an amazing day it was helping Susie and Trent tie the knot in an intimate wedding on a mountain top at Mt Coot-tha, in the company of their immediate family.
That backdrop is simply amazing, as was the couples connection as they became husband and wife.
Big thanks to the girls at Papillon Studio for capturing this special moment.
Following the intimate ceremony, the happy bride and groom headed to the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens at the base of Mt Coot-tha for their wedding photo shoot with their photographers, before joining their close group of guests at Summit Mt Coot-tha’s outdoor pavilion for a coverred outdoor style reception with delicious food and stunning views. Thank you to Susie and Trent for kindly sending this beautiful photo of your Mt Coot-tha wedding to me. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your relaxed and intimate wedding so much!

If you enjoyed this post and are looking for a Celebrant like Cara that is located just a short 5 minute drive from this venue (we believe it’s particularly important to have a local Celebrant during the summer months when the Brisbane weather is less predictable). Brisbane City Celebrants have performed many weddings at this venue with a view and would love to hear from you, contact us now to confirm availability for your special day. Congratulations to the happy newly-weds!

Surprise Gay Wedding

Oh how I loved working with these two gorgeous girls in planning their surprise gay wedding.

Guests thought they were attending a surprise 30th birthday for one of the girls, only to discover the surprise was on them and they were actually about to witness a wedding!
The two brides went dress shopping separately and got ready separately as per wedding tradition so they both got to take in that WOW moment as their eyes met at opposite ends of the aisle.
This same sex wedding took place in the function space at the Foxy Bean in Woolloongabba which was simply perfect.

What an amazing surprise for all those present and such a special wedding ♡Congratulations to the new Mrs & Mrs!

Summit Mt Coot-tha Wedding with Jamie

With Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

It was an absolute privilege being the Celebrant for Maureen and David’s intimate and heartfelt Summit Mt Coot-tha wedding.

The happy couple married at Summit Restaurant on the top of Mt Coot-tha on a clear Summers day with sweeping views of Brisbane in the backdrop.

The happy couple enjoyed a first look photo shoot in the Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens with their photographer Jonas Peterson where David walked up to Maureen and they locked eyes as bride and groom for the first time in this intimate setting.

First look shoots are increasingly popular with couples who love the idea of having their location photos take place earlier in the day, so once the ceremony concludes they aren’t separated from their guests and they can get straight in to the celebrations. It’s also great for the guests as it usually means a later ceremony that transitions straight in to the reception with no waiting in between.

The couple wrote thoughtful, heartfelt, emotional and meaningful vows to each other. There were tears, laughter and above all else they both glowed with love!

Congratulations to the happy newlyweds and thank you for choosing me for your Summit Mt Coot-tha wedding.

Colmslie Beach Reserve Wedding Photo Shoot

Inspired by the beauty of nature this Colmslie Beach Reserve wedding shoot fused a bohemian mix of botanical greenery, recycled wood and intricate lace with a love filled vibe. Set amongst two magnificent rows of Jacaranda trees in Brisbane at sunset.

Our bride was enhanced with softly glowing make up and waves by Shannon Hope Make Up Artist and sparkling jewellery by Redki. The glowing bride made her way down in the most stunning gown from the latest collection by Goddess by Nature. The breathtaking lace and tulle trains with beautiful lace trimmings played tribute to the brides femininity.

The aisle was beautifully decorated with stunning ghost chairs from Brisbane Wedding Decorators, and being clear they enhanced the greenery of the surrounding reserve. The ghost chairs were complimented with fresh floral arrangements by New England Flower Co.

The bride made her way up the aisle to her eagerly waiting groom at their the boho chic styled ceremony set up by Brisbane Wedding Decorators. Recycled timber doors created a simple chic backdrop, framed perfectly by botanical greenery and star jasmine plants.

The groom was looking sharp in a custom made Wil Valor suit, crisp white shirt and a green tie, a colour palette that worked perfectly with the botanical greenery.

The natural beauty of the couple was magically captured by Twig and Fawn Photography.

Laser engraved stationary, menus and signage featuring rustic wooden materials, paired with olive leaf motif menus and welcome signs were beautifully designed and crafted by The Rustic At Heart.

Once they sealed the deal and enjoyed a glass of bubbles at their relaxed cocktail style reception setting.

The bride and groom then enjoyed a little time alone together to kick back, relax and take in all the magic together at a stunning picnic setting with champagne and nibbles. Precious time that we recommend every couple includes in their wedding day schedule as the day really will fly by so quickly so a little time out to relax, reflect and just be will be in the moment.

In appreciation of nature, nourishing organic seasonal canapés were provided by caterer Wholesomeness who are passionate about good, healthy, natural unprocessed foods.

Colsmlie Beach Reserve Wedding Brisbane (67)

Brisbane Wedding Decorators freshly sliced fruit garnished drinks dispensers perfectly complimented the canapés, and a greenery garland perfectly tied in the botanical theme on the serving table. As the saying goes every party needs a cake, so Cakes by Holly Eloise provided a sweet cake topped with a peachy floral arrangement by New England Flower Co.

Every drop and ray of sunlight was captured by Twig and Fawn Photography, highlighting the newlyweds feeling of playfulness as the sun began to set.

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!

Tell us about any of your other wedding suppliers that you were impressed with:

Hair and make up – Locks and Lashes

Catering – Wine & Dine ‘m

Ceremony Chair Hire – Brisbane Wedding Decorators

Photography – Dreamlife Photo and Video

Orleigh Park Wedding Celebrant Jamie Eastgate

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!’
