Victoria Park wedding with the cutest little page boys

With Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

What a happy day it was for Megan and Hugh’s Victoria Park wedding with their sons perfecting their roles as the cutest little page boys.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The couple opted for an unplugged wedding ceremony to encourage their guests to relax and engage in the ceremony they had put so much thought in to, and what a great decision that was! We love how Freya from Ethereal Photography captured the guests enjoying the ceremony and glowing with love as they watched Megan and Hugh become husband and wife.

Megan and Hugh first met when they were teenagers at an after school job. Hugh left to live in London and they both soon realised they couldn’t be without each other so they reunited and have been together ever since.

Excited to be expecting a baby together, they took a short trip away to Noosa for Hugh’s birthday, Megan recalls feeling very unwell.

Hugh had many ideas about how and where to propose but none of them suited Megan with her all day morning sickness.

The morning of the proposal Hugh had tried a number of times to get Megan to leave the bed of the hotel but nothing was going to budge her.

Hugh couldn’t wait a moment longer and simply dropped to one knee and asked Megan to marry him.

Megan was so surprised and the excitement and love she felt made her forget she felt ill! This also cemented how much Hugh considers his birthday week to be the most important week of the year.

The couple shared surprise vows with each other that they heard for the first time during the ceremony which were both heartfelt and fun.

With a safe delivery of the rings from a very special little ring bearer, Megan and Hugh, said “I Do” and sealed their marriage with a kiss!

We love this gorgeous shot of them stepping in to married life as a family, glowing with happiness!

This cheeky cake topper is everything! “Finally Mr and Mrs”

5 STAR REVIEW Jamie was our Celebrant and we couldn’t have been happier. He was punctual, organised and put us at ease. The step by step process along the way leading up the wedding made this really easy. Would definitely recommend :)”

Congratulations to the happy newlyweds and thank you for choosing Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants for your special day.

Tell us about your Reception:

Our reception was exactly as we had pictured it. Large chandeliers, candle lit tables with beautiful Singapore orchids in the centre. We had round tables with black chairs to suit our theme, each table was named after a famous cricketer. This was the Grooms idea.

What we loved….

We loved the quality of service we had at our wedding. Every vendor went above and beyond to make our day special. Both the ceremony and reception were perfect and every effort was made to make our guests feel comfortable. Our wedding went off without a hitch.

 

Describe your experience with Jamie from Brisbane City Celebrants:

Jamie was wonderful. From the moment you meet him, he makes you feel comfortable and puts you at ease. He was always organised and more than willing to provide ideas on any aspect of the ceremony.

We found Jamie to be highly professional and very comfortable in front of an audience. We would definitely recommend Jamie and Brisbane City Celebrants to anyone getting married.

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

We had such wonderful suppliers.

Photography- Chris Hall photography. These guys are extremely competent and highly skilled in wedding photography. Justin makes you feel great and seems to capture every moment perfectly.

Cake- Allmixedup cakes. Sonja from Allmixedup Cakes designs and creates beautiful cakes. She delivered and assembled the cake at our reception and sent us images of what it looks like before we arrived.

Dress- Wendy Makin Bridal Designs- Wendy and the team have an amazing ability to make you look and feel beautiful. They catered to my every need and request and were able to suggest suitable jewellery for the big day.

Ceremony and Reception- Victoria Park Golf Complex- Vic Park do the most amazing weddings. We had a clear idea of what we wanted and the girls in the functions department went out of their way to create our perfect wedding. They answered every email and every question we had on any detail no matter how big or small and sort to make our wedding as cost effective as possible.

Your advice to bride and grooms to be:

Be organised. We found that once we got ourselves organised and knew what we wanted suppliers and vendors were able to make it happen. You can’t control everything that happens on the day but having a solid idea of what you want and how you want it to come together helps to make the day run smoothly.

The other piece of advice we found helpful was to take some time to enjoy the day as husband and wife. With everything that’s going on and all the attention people are giving you, time will go very quickly. Try and steal a few minutes after your ceremony or during the reception to spend a quiet moment together and take in the significance of what is happening.

This is a whole new chapter of your lives.

Jamie’s 100th wedding at Victoria Park Golf Complex

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

When a Celebrant achieves such a significant milestone as performing their 100th wedding ceremony, that’s got to be worth writing about. However, weddings aren’t about us the Celebrants, they are about the couple and the celebration of the milestone in their relationship and this couple created such an incredible celebratory atmosphere that is certainly worth writing about so here goes.

Victoria Park Golf Complex Garden Marquee Wedding with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate.

Victoria Park Golf Complex Garden Marquee Wedding with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate.

Jamie met with this sweet couple earlier on in the year, where they discussed their plans to marry in the Garden Marquee at Victoria Park Golf Complex. They had a simple and meaningful wedding ceremony in mind, so Jamie discussed various ideas and options with them before writing a ceremony for their special day.

 

With the option of Jamie delivering the ceremony from the side (out of photos way), the couple decided they would like to have Jamie centered as he delivers the ceremony which we find most of our couples prefer as it seems to help with reducing the wedding nerves!

 

Before we knew it the day of the wedding had arrived, we always feel the excitement of our couples on the morning of their wedding day, but this day was extra exciting as they were blessed with the most beautiful clear sunny winters day.

As their special day coincided with the first Saturday of the Brisbane Ekka and considering the close proximity of the venue to the Ekka festivities, we anticipated traffic may be on the slow side, we were mistaken, but better to be safe than sorry we arrived extra early anyway.

Jamie was greeted by Jacqueline the onsite Wedding Coordinator and we set up the PA, and I Ciara, aka Celebrant Assistant for the day, assisted Jamie with getting his lapel and cordless microphone volume and sound perfect.

We also had the pleasure of working alongside 2 lovely and very talented photographers, Ola and Andrew from Kwintowski Photography who like us are a husband and wife team who are truly passionate about what they do.

We have had the pleasure of working alongside the Kwintowski’s in the past so we knew how nice they were to work with, and what fantastic images they produce.

Andrew hinted that they planned to utilise the timing of Ekka for the couples wedding photos, we can’t wait to see what amazing images they captured!

We were also really spoilt having Peter and Abhay from Paramount Events taking care of all the ceremony music for this wedding. While we do offer the use of our high quality PA System to all our couples for their ceremony music, having professional DJ’s taking care of this aspect of the ceremony is one less thing for the bride and groom to have to worry about and they did a fantastic job too, cranking the volume up just that little bit extra as the bride and her bridesmaids entered ensured the bridal party had the guests undivided attention.

Victoria Park Golf Complex Wedding

The couple chose the track ‘Count on me’ by Bruno Mars to play while the signing of their certificates took place, we couldn’t help but notice how in tune the photographers worked, both focusing on shooting a different aspect of the ceremony at any one time and I have no doubt their relaxed and professional approach assisted in putting the couple at ease.

Following the signing of the marriage register, Jamie introduced the happy couple as Mr & Mrs for the very first time, and as their faces lit up in excitement, with held hands they fist pumped the air to a huge cheer and applause from their guests before making their way back down the aisle to ‘Beautiful Day’ by U2, and they really couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate song, as indeed the most beautiful day it was.

After sending this blog post to the bride and groom for approval I received this lovely email in return sent while they were honeymooning in New York City.
