With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants
I loved being a part of this small and intimate Brisbane elopement and am so excited to have just received this fantastic review from the happy newlyweds.
“My fiancee and I ran away to Brisbane and eloped in late December. Jamie was fantastic he responded with useful suggestions and recommendations, which was particularly helpful as we were coordinating this from overseas.
The ceremony, while very simple, was exactly what we were after. The day was perfect. Thanks Jamie.”
The wedding took place in the company of just 2 witnesses, the photographer Anthony Hoang and myself which made for a super relaxed, short and sweet ceremony.
At the couples request the ceremony involved simply the legal wording and exchanging of rings while the bride and groom looked lovingly in to each others eyes. Within minutes they were married.
There was no need for a crowd at this wedding as the witnesses and photographer more than made up for one, excitedly bursting in to celebratory cheers and applause the moment I pronounced them husband and wife.
Following the ceremony the couple accompanied Anthony Hoang from Lover of Mine to nearby UQ for a post wedding photo shoot where he captured these stunning photos.
The newlyweds then celebrated with an intimate lunch for 2 at a nearby restaurant. I can’t imaging a more relaxed wedding day!
Congratulations to the happy newlyweds!
If you too love the idea of eloping in Brisbane with a simple and relaxed ceremony on a private deck, Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants would love to hear from you.
A Brisbane City Botanic Gardens Elopement with Cara Hodge
With Celebrant Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants
It was such a beautiful day for love birds Julie and Terry to become husband and wife in a very intimate Brisbane City Botanic Gardens elopement at The Wedding Lawn.
The sweet couple traveled from Sydney to elope here in Brisbane, as they hold fond memories of their times together in Brisbane in the earlier days of their relationship. Not to mention the fact that we’ve barely had a drop of rain here in the last 3 months, so they were practically guaranteed clear blue skies and sunshine.
To assist with their elopement in Brisbane, I organised their 2 witnesses 2 lovely friends of mine who really enjoyed being a part of the couples special day. The happy couple wrote the sweetest vows which they read to each other before being pronounced husband and wife. Their huge smiles never left their faces and show just how happy and deeply in love this couple are.
The newlyweds were kind enough to invite us to join them for a celebratory drink at the Stamford Plaza Hotel before they made their way to Customs House for an intimate reception for 2.
Wishing you both all the very best for your future together and thank you for choosing me to be your Celebrant.
