Eat Street Markets Wedding
With Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants
Lauren and Andy’s wedding which began at Brisbane’s Newstead Rotunda and finished with a vibrant and fun filled Eat Street Markets wedding reception is EVERYTHING!
This easy going couple opted for a simple modern ceremony that not only celebrated their relationship, but was also a celebration of them as a family, so their gorgeous little daughter Bella was as much a part of their day as they were.
The ceremony began with some pre-wedding announcements which provides the guests all the info they need and answers all the common questions, and also sets the tone for the ceremony. This was also a great opportunity to remind guests that they can use the couples wedding hash tag #laurenandandy2018 which is always a great way for your Instagram fam to enjoy all the guests photos.
Their Newstead Rotunda wedding ceremony was timed perfectly, with the rotunda having just been freshly painted and with a brand new roof, in 10 years of weddings in Brisbane I have never seen the rotunda looking this fresh! They were also blessed with a beautiful day!
The couple planned a non-traditional wedding where they put tradition aside and simply did everything their own way, to ensure their guests and them enjoyed every moment of their Newstead rotunda and Eat Street Markets wedding. On arrival, the couples daughter Bella was walking down the long curving aisle, when just past the half way point she spotted Andrew, broke free and excitedly sprinted to the rotunda to wrap her little arms around his legs, much to the amusement of the guests. Meanwhile Lauren followed her bridesmaids down the aisle arriving with her ‘glowing with pride’ Mum.
I love seeing Photographers capture the ceremony from this angle with all the guests looking on in the background which is why I try to deliver much of the ceremony from the side.
I couldn’t have been happier to receive the following feedback from the happy couple:
“Cara was amazing!
She made the process so easy for the day.
Answered any questions, big or small for us, had advice for the little things and even gave us Honeymoon travel tips.
We couldn’t have chosen a better celebrant for our day! Thank you so much Cara!”
