Wedding at Henzell Chapel – The cutest little wedding chapel you ever did see!
With Celebrant Cara Hodge of Brisbane City Celebrants
I loved everything about Lisa and Simon’s beautiful wedding at the super cute Henzell Chapel at Mt Pleasant. This was the first time I have performed a wedding at this chapel and having seen photos of this wedding chapel I was super excited about this ceremony venue.
Lisa and Simon were kind enough to organise transport for their guests to the Chapel which is approximately a 1 hr drive North of Brisbane, and they were super sweet in also providing me a seat on the bus that they hired through Rolo transport.
When we arrived we were greeted by the amazing sight of the cutest little stone chapel you ever did see, surrounded by panoramic views of rolling hills and lakes, you couldn’t imagine more beautiful surrounds, it felt so peaceful and serene and perfectly suited this couples wedding theme, as Lisa mentioned to me a few days prior, their theme for the day is ‘relaxed’. What a great state of mind for enjoying your own wedding day!
The Chapel was the perfect size to comfortably seat all of their 44 weddings guests. The bride and groom decided on having no bridal party, which gave the groom the opportunity to pick his own outfit and colours as he didn’t need to be matching anyone else. In keeping with tradition while the groom was yet to see what the bride was wearing, she was also about to be surprised in seeing what he had picked.
The bride was beaming as she arrived wearing the most beautiful lace wedding dress with a keyhole back as she was walked down the aisle by her mother while the groom managed to hold back the tears (just!). With much enthusiasm, the brides whole family ‘gave her away’ and the short yet relaxed and enjoyable ceremony commenced and included some really great interaction with the guests.
After they shared their first kiss as husband and wife, we made our way outside to the signing table, positioned perfectly on the top of the hill, taking in the amazing expansive views. Where I pronounced the bride and groom as husband and wife and they were congratulated by their equally happy and excited wedding guests.
The wedding ceremony was followed by an afternoon tea outside which included some delicious home made baking by the couples friends, before the bus headed back to West End for the reception which took place at the funky Gun Shop Cafe.
Here is some lovely feedback from this Henzell Chapel bride:
It was such a pleasure being the Celebrant for this couples Henzell Chapel wedding and I wish them every happiness for their future together.
