A happiness filled wedding at Broadway Chapel

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

Every time we catch a glimpse of the photos from this Broadway Chapel wedding we can’t help but smile from ear to ear.

We love the elegant atmosphere of the beautiful chapel, we love that they gave their grandmothers the honour of being their official witnesses and joining them in signing the marriage documents, we love the excitement of the bride and groom as they are pronounced husband and wife and exit the chapel, we love the special moments have been perfectly captured by Ruth Ryan Photography and of course we love the amazing feedback from this happy bride and groom as they share their day in a ‘Real Wedding’ testimonial.

Tell us about your Ceremony: 

We chose the Broadway Chapel for our ceremony location.  It is a beautiful old converted chapel that provided wonderful photos opportunities both on the inside and the out.  Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants was our chosen celebrant for our special day.  We first saw him on the Four Weddings Australia TV show performing a wedding and we knew his easy going personality was exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant.

Jamie made the process leading up to our wedding very easy.  He was always willing to provide advice for us on how things would best run on the day.

Reception Location:

Our reception was at the United Service Club of Brisbane (on the corner of Wickham Tce and Upper Edward St, Spring Hill).

Tell us about your Reception: 

The United Service Club is an amazing, heritage listed building which provided a quality of service that surpassed our expectations.  The food was exquisite, the staff were extremely professional and the classical old features of the building intrigued our guests right throughout the night.

What we loved……

I’m not sure how to sum up all of the things we loved about our wedding day.  Let’s just say that if it weren’t for our loving family and friends being there with us, the day just would not have been the same.  We also loved our choices in wedding professionals.

From our amazing Marriage Celebrant Jamie Eastgate to the flowers (Ballinger and Shaw Botanics), the custom made dress (Penny lane Bridal), the amazingly delicious cake (Sweet Fix Cupcakes), the fun loving photographer (Ruth Ryan photography) and Videographer (Gary Ratchford Filming) and of course both the ceremony and reception venues, our day was definitely one which we will never forget.

Describe your experience with Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants: 

Jamie Eastgate is a highly professional, easy going Civil Marriage Celebrant who took the time to sit with my husband and myself in order to make our day exactly what we wanted it to be.  He was very adaptable and was always willing to suggest options that might have suited our day a little better.

Your advice to bride and grooms to be: 

Relax and enjoy!  (Well, try to relax and enjoy).  My husband and I don’t regret anything that happened in preparation for our wedding, however we only wish we had the time to enjoy our engagement and the planning of the wedding a little more.  Unfortunately for most brides and grooms, families tend to put a lot of pressure on planning a wedding.  Just make sure your wedding really is YOUR wedding!
