What an amazing day it was for this Brisbane riverside wedding with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate.
The happiness filled wedding of Kristen and Thomas took at Lower River Terrace Kangaroo Point. This lawn that can be booked for exclusive use for couples wedding ceremonies through Brisbane City Council.
The couple enjoyed a happy, relaxed authentic ceremony, delivered perfectly by Celebrant Jamie Eastgate.
Jamie shared the story of how Kristen and Thomas met at work. When Thomas first met Kristen his initial thoughts were:
“She’s hot and I’m going to be in trouble with HR if I talk to her” so he tried his best to ignore her for the first month.
In response, Kristen’s first impression of Thomas was: “I think he might be gay”
They knew they were meant to be when Kristen announced she was going to marry Thomas, despite previously always declaring that she never wanted to get married, and likewise Thomas wanting to marry Kristen despite swearing off marriage forever.
Their ceremony combined heart felt moments, sheer joy and some roaring belly laughs for good measure (a great way to ease any wedding day nerves).
The story of the proposal began with Thomas setting up a lovely night in which he planned to ask Kristen to marry him.
The only thing he was unable to get into his possession was the ring (which they had both chosen, was already bought, viewed and “tried on” many times).
Kristen was in the bathroom on her third costume change of the evening, while Thomas scrambled through boxes on the top shelf of the wardrobe looking for the ring when suddenly, Kristen burst through the door and said:” I’m just going to see what my engagement ring looks like with this outfit”.
So, as they like to put it, Kristen is effectively engaged to herself with Thomas’ blessing.
The happy couple shared their own personalised vows with each other which they heard for the first time during the ceremony, before exchanging rings and sealing the deal with a kiss.
Darcy Walsh Photography was on hand to capture all the magic to perfection while putting the couple at ease so they could enjoy their day and relax and be comfortable in front of the camera.
After they made their way back down the aisle together as husband and wife, guests congratulated them then they headed off to the nearby rocks at Kangaroo Point for these stunning location photos as the sun began to set. Then they celebrated the night away at Riverlife.
Congratulations to the happy newlyweds. What a beautiful day!
