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.

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.
