A winter winery wedding

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

Serena and Eric were joined by family and friends from all over the world, to celebrate their beautifully styled winter winery wedding at Sirromet Winery on Brisbane’s bayside. I couldn’t have been happier to receive the following feedback from the happy couple:

5 STARS Jamie did a great job! He is so friendly and very proactive to contact his clients throughout the process. He made our ceremony relaxing and fun. No matter when I emailed him, he always got back to me really quickly. Absolutely a really great celebrant! Thank you Jamie.

This venue offers a variety of ceremony and reception locations. The happy couple opted for the popular Laguna site, followed by cocktail hour at the Tuscan Terrace with the reception celebrations being held in the barrel room.

Serena got ready for her wedding in the company of her bridesmaid and these adorable hounds!

The Laguna was styled with stunning oversize dried and fresh floral arrangements and a wooden wedding welcome sign.

As the guests arrived, mingled and were seated, the Harpist strummed adding to the romantic tone of the ceremony.

The couple opted to keep their ceremony wording light, relaxed and a little fun and loved the first draft of the ceremony I sent through so much they felt it didn’t need any changes or edits. It’s always reassuring to know I’ve understood my couples requirements well and have relayed these in to their ceremonies as they envisioned.

A small Brisbane wedding at 1889 Enoteca

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Jamie + Cara – Brisbane City Celebrants

If you are planning a small and intimate wedding surrounded by your nearest and dearest, and are passionate about amazing food and great wine, 1889 Enoteca is an absolute must to check out. The gallery of this recent small Brisbane wedding at 1889 Enoteca has our tummies rumbling, our mouths watering and our hearts yearning for more!

1889 Enoteca wedding venue

Located centrally just inches from the Gabba stadium in Woolloongabba,  1889 Enoteca has a private cellar style dining room downstairs featuring brick walls and chandeliers and offering atmosphere and privacy. We are actually so fond of the amazing authentically cooked Italian dishes like the truffle gnocchi, rigatoni, freshly baked loaf and tiramisu, that we have even spent each others birthdays together at the upstairs restaurant.

small wedding Brisbane

This lovely couple opted for a simple and relaxed ceremony, that was meaningful and heartfelt. Being a special yet fairly quick ceremony, meant they could all get straight in to the celebrations with their closest family and friends at this stunning venue.

It was such a pleasure working alongside Chris Jack Photography who is always so accommodating in working with the priorities and schedule of his couples, like this couple who decided not to have bridal portraits/ photos taken after the ceremony, as it was so important to them to spend every moment of their day celebrating in the company of their loved ones.

Chris captured all the details of the wedding perfectly, from the naked wedding cake to the long tables soft pink and warm burgundy styling and flowers.

REAL WEDDING at Victoria Park with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

Bride and groom– Tramy and Sean

Wedding date – 2nd November 2019

How and where did you meet? We met as friends over 16 years ago through mutual friends. Our paths crossed again 7 years later and we’ve been together since!

The Marquee function space Victoria Park

Traditional Tea Ceremony

Our wedding day began with a traditional tea ceremony. Being on the same day as the wedding meant our day was very long but filled with many memorable moments! We have a large family and many relatives, so having both of our families come together for the tea ceremony was very special.

Ceremony venue: Our ceremony was held at The Marquee Deck, Victoria Park

Celebrant: Our Celebrant was Jamie Eastgate at Brisbane City Celebrants. Jamie did an amazing job on the day, and made every step along the way so easy! We had the best day and would have to say that the highlight of the day would be that moment we walked down the aisle together as husband and wife, surrounded by our family and friends!

Loving the dog ring bearer

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate – Brisbane City Celebrants

What a fantastic surprise it was having the couples much loved dog Sasha make a very special appearance and be a part of their special day as the dog ring bearer!

The groom organised for the couples dog to be the surprise ring bearer, and when the Best Man pretended to forget the rings, to everyone’s surprise, the groom whistled and their beautiful dog Sasha appeared from around the corner, and with a little help, made her way down the aisle with the rings.

5 STAR CELEBRANT REVIEW

 “Jamie was a great Celebrant for our wedding!

He made personalising our ceremony easy, was super flexible, and offered great advice and support for vow writing.
We had a fun, relaxed ceremony, with lots of laughs which was just perfect.
Jamie was even in on a surprise my husband organised for me, to include our dog in the ceremony, which is one of my favourite memories.
Our guests commented on how good the ceremony was and said it was a real reflection of us as a couple…thanks to Jamie.

An elegant Lower River Terrace wedding

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

At the foot of the soaring Kangaroo Point Cliffs, on the banks of the Brisbane river are the stunning Lower River Terrace wedding lawns, with river view lawns 1 and 2 being the most popular spots, each boasting a stunning river backdrop with the City Botanic Gardens and the sky scrapping CBD visible in the distance.

The couple signed their marriage certificates with Mont Blanc pens provided by Celebrant Jamie Eastgate

Rhonda and Ian thoughtfully created a thoroughly enjoyable day for their guests, even organising a marquee when rain was forecast, so their ceremony could still take place at Lower River Terrace as originally planned. I was so happy to receive the following 5 star review from the happy newlyweds:

“Jamie was very personable and really enthusiastic re our wedding. He delivered a great ceremony and we could tailor it up or down to suit.
Thoroughly recommended.”

Following their ceremony, they made the most of their river side location and joined their guests on board a boat for cocktail hour celebrations with nibbles and drinks, while taking in the spectacular scenery as they cruised the Brisbane river.

The river view sites can be booked through Brisbane City Council, giving you exclusive use of your chosen lawn.

Michael and Philip’s Sunshine Coast Wedding

Michael and Philip’s Sunshine Coast wedding with Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants was everything dreams are made of!

With groom Michael well known and acclaimed within the Brisbane Wedding community for planning luxurious events, naturally every detail was thoughtfully planned and designed, resulting in a truly beautiful day full of love, happiness and laughter.

This gorgeous wedding was so special to us. Not only was Jamie given the honour of being the Celebrant for the happy couple, as friends of the two grooms we are invited to stay and celebrate as guests.

LGBTQI_wedding_Celebrant_Brisbane3.jpg

Michael and Philip worked with Jamie to design a ceremony that celebrated their love and shared the story of their 13 years together.

Balancing their humour and zest with a meaningful sincere celebration, both the grooms and their guests were laughing out loud one minute, then shedding happy tears the next. Very much the same emotions the guests continued to have later when the epic speeches were delivered over lunch.

LGBTQI_wedding_Celebrant_Brisbane.jpgLGBTQI_wedding_Celebrant_Brisbane2.jpgSame_sex_wedding_Celebrant_Brisbane.jpg

One simple point of difference that contributed to the success of the day, was opting for a morning wedding ceremony, followed directly by a lunch time reception.

The two grooms opted for a mid morning ceremony on a week day which took place at Noosa’s Hidden Grove on the foreshore of Noosa beach. Following the ceremony, instead of the guests being separated from the couple for photos, everyone took a short stroll along the beach to the reception at Sails Noosa where the celebrations began with flowing drinks, canapes and even an oyster bar before guests were seated on long tables decorated with soft pink flowers.

Wedding_guests.jpgWedding_ceremony_hugs.jpgEquality_wedding_Celebrant_Brisbane.jpg

To the guests surprise they were invited to choose their own entrees and main from the menu. Everyone was in awe at how delicious every dish was! The service from Sails Restaurant was equally exceptional with glasses always staying topped up with champagne.

After lunch the band began to play and the dance floor instantly filled, with Michael stealing the show (and the mic) to present his own surprise rendition of Nicki Minaj.

Wedding_dance.jpgWedding_reception_dance_.jpg

The fun didn’t stop there, when the long lunch reception wrapped up at 4pm, the guests headed off to a nearby venue for the optional after party to continue the celebrations, while the grooms made the most of the golden afternoon light heading off to a quiet beach with their Photographer and Cinematographer for sunset shots with their bridesmaids.

same_sex_wedding_Brisbane.jpgWedding_photography_noosa.jpgWhat an amazing way to begin your journey in to married life and what a huge honour to be a part of and share in this long awaited very special day.

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.

Relaxed Eat Streets Wedding

Relaxed Eat Streets Wedding

With Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

Rachelle and Jamie tell us all about their relaxed Eat Streets wedding, beginning with a relaxed and upbeat ceremony that took place at the adjoining Macarthur Park at Northshore Harbour.

We wanted our wedding day to be young at heart, fun, and relaxed, much like us.

Our ceremony took place on the lawn at Northshore Park near the Northshore Ferry Terminal. We envisioned something simple but beautiful, where the focus was on us and the love we have for each other. We had a wonderful ceremony officiated by Jamie Eastgate Brisbane City Celebrants.

Cara at Brisbane Wedding Decorators created our ceremony setup which was just beautiful, and exactly what I was hoping for. The simple ceremony arbour decor really let the background and the bridal party shine!

Thankfully the weather was sunny and mild, as we didn’t have a wet weather backup plan, and the weather was predicting afternoon showers right up until the day! We had a short and heartfelt ceremony and it was so wonderful to have our families on both sides celebrate together.

Reception

Our reception was held in the beautiful Riverdeck at Eat Street Markets. We have always loved Eat Street Markets for it’s good food and fun atmosphere, so it was perfect for our reception!

Many of our guests had never been there before, so it was a big hit with them!

We had some time between the ceremony and reception for our guests to explore the markets, and then had a variety of platters from the food vendors in the reception area.

We have always loved being outdoors and looking up at the stars, so we chose a silver and navy night sky theme for the wedding.

The Riverdeck had gorgeous wooden tables, decorated with lanterns with pineapples, ferns and fairy lights. It was so quirky and different, we loved it! They also had a beautiful bar in the room wrapped in vines and flowers, and the lanterns on the ceiling gave the room a very special feel.

We had so many people saying ‘congratulations’ and clapping for us as we walked around, even the food vendors in their stalls were yelling out and cheering, and it gave the night such a special feel.

While we were getting our photos done there was a lady who came up to us with her daughter, who wanted to say hi because she thought I was a real princess, so we said hi and had a little chat. It was little moments like that that really made the day feel even more special than it already was!

We had a cocktail reception with share platters from Eat Street Markets vendors, including oysters from Shuck All Oyster Bar, antipasto from Pizza/Pasta, Asian inspired finger foods from Tokyo Tucka, and chicken wings, pork belly and zucchini chips from Poulet and Porc. We also had a number of guests go out and get food that they saw that they couldn’t leave without trying!

 

Cake

The cake was an amazing creation by Karlee’s Cupcakes.

I think people thought we were a bit odd when we mentioned having a navy blue wedding cake, but Karlee has such a unique style, we knew she could pull it off!!

We had a 16 inch navy and white decorated cutting cake with a custom made “Mr & Mrs Parker” cake topper, and white and navy cupcakes for the guests with silver edible glitter.

The cupcakes were a HUGE hit, as we had a little surprise for our guests: anyone who ate the blue cupcakes temporarily had their mouths turn blue! It was all fun and games until my 18-month-old son came up to me with a blue mouth!

Mt Coot-tha Elopements

Mt Coot-tha Elopements

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants

The Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens boasts a wide variety of lush greenery and botanical goodness, making the gardens an ideal spot for weddings and also doubles as a great spot for post wedding photos. There are 3 ceremony lawns that can be booked through the council for weddings, which now include use of ceremony chairs. As the Mt Coot-tha ceremony lawns, tend to be surplus to the needs of eloping couples, instead, couples are choosing their favourite little spot to arrive at with their 2 witnesses, Photographer and Celebrant to tie the knot in a short, relaxed and stress-free ceremony, often followed by an intimate celebration lunch or dinner at the top of Mt Coot-tha at Summit Restaurant.

Today Celebrant Jamie is sharing some recent Mt Coot-tha elopements with us.

Jen & Ryan

5 STAR REVIEW – “Jamie was very professional and helpful. Assisted us with all our needs and minimised the stress leading up to the eventful day. Highly recommend anyone who is looking for a celebrant who is both mindful and professional with flexibility.” Jen & Ryan

Saskia and James

We chose a small, intimate wedding ceremony to focus solely on us and our relationship. There were a few practical reasons why we decided to have a small, intimate ceremony such as our extended families living in different countries and the sheer cost of a traditional ceremony and reception.

5 STAR REVIEW “Jamie at Brisbane City Celebrants was extremely professional from the moment we first made contact with him about our planned private wedding ceremony. He was very quick to respond to our emails and professional in his communication.

When we met Jamie to discuss what we wanted for our ceremony, he was extremely personable and showed genuine excitement and interest in what we wanted. Jamie also organised all the necessary paperwork for our marriage and was always prompt when sending or receiving anything.
He also supplied us a helpful vow writing worksheet and lots of extra information that really made the entire experience stress-free and easy to manage.

We customised our vows and the ceremony entirely to our own preferences (besides the legally required sections). It was a perfect ceremony that went exactly the way we imagined in no small part to Jamie’s fantastic, beautiful personal service.

We would highly recommend Jamie as a Celebrant for anybody’s future marriage ceremony.” Saskia and James

Having what some might consider a ‘non-traditional’ wedding highlights our unique personalities and traits. A private ceremony appealed to us because we could get married stress-free knowing that the day was relaxed and natural, rather than having to worry about following standard protocol and tradition.

An intimate Brisbane Elopement

An intimate Brisbane Elopement

With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate Brisbane City Celebrants

The adorable Saskia and James are sharing their inspiration for their sweet elopement style wedding ceremony which took place in Brisbane’s Botanical Gardens.

We chose a small, intimate wedding ceremony to focus solely on us and our relationship. There were a few practical reasons why we decided to have a small, intimate ceremony such as our extended families living in different countries and the sheer cost of a traditional ceremony and reception.

The main thing is we believe that everybody’s wedding should be a reflection of their relationship.

This loved up duo arrived together hand in hand.

Our Celebrant Jamie Eastgate was extremely professional from the moment we first made contact with him about our planned private wedding ceremony. Jamie was extremely personable and showed genuine excitement and interest in what we envisioned for our day.

He supplied lots of extra information that really made the entire experience stress-free and easy to manage, including a helpful vow writing worksheet.

Here are the vows we wrote to each other:

James Vows to Saskia

Saskia, I promise that I will be a loving husband to you from this day forth forever. You are a headstrong, determined and inspiring woman who has opened my eyes to the best of this world. Ever since we first met, you have been by my side, as I grow into the man I am on this day, and into the future. I promise to always have you by my side. Together we can accomplish anything, and continue to experience the best of this world through each other. Today, I promise to love, support and respect you for the rest of my life.

Saskia’s vows to James

James, I am so proud to take you as my husband. I love your caring nature, your enthusiasm and your passion. When I’m with you, I can be the person I want to be. Thank you for being who you are. You have helped me become the person I am today. You bring out the best in me, and I cannot imagine my life without you. I promise to always have you by my side; to be with you forever, just as you are. Today, I promise to love, support and respect you for the rest of my life.

A friend and our Photographer were official witnesses which kept our ceremony intimate and relaxed.

Our ceremony was perfect and went exactly the way we imagined!

Having what some might consider a ‘non-traditional’ wedding highlights our unique personalities and traits. A private ceremony appealed to us because we could get married stress-free knowing that the day was relaxed and natural, rather than having to worry about following standard protocol and tradition.
