With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants
Bride and Groom: Louise and Owen
Wedding Date: 8 March 2014
Ceremony Location: Private Property Wedding, Tallai, Gold Coast
Tell us about your Ceremony:
Our Ceremony was personal and intimate. It was in a little garden with a big view.
It was important to us for our guests to feel relaxed and involved, and upon reflection, we achieved that (and more!) with the help of Jamie Eastgate our Celebrant, it really felt like “us.”
Reception Location: Private Residence, Tallai, Gold Coast
Tell us about your Reception:
Our Reception was at the same venue as our ceremony, however, the reception was held on the (huge!!) deck overlooking Surfers Paradise.
Our main aim was for the reception to feel relaxed and happy. We didn’t have any formalities, so the evening just flowed perfectly from beginning to end.
What we loved:
We honestly just loved that we were surrounded by our loved ones on our special day.
The less people you invite, the more intimate and relaxed the day is. We had approximately 55 guests, which was perfect for us as it was just close friends and family. We felt so loved.
Describe your experience with Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants:
Jamie was perfect. He told ‘our story’ so well and he really helped put us at ease!
He even called the day before to iron over any last minute issues/ concerns, which really helped ease those ‘pre-wedding worries!’
He truly has an aura of love and happiness. Throughout the reception, our guests commented about what a great job he did. We can’t thank him enough.
Wedding Suppliers we were impressed with:
We hired all of our furniture, glasses, urn, bins etc through Gold Coast Events and Party Rentals. They were fantastic. They were very reliable and they gave us a great deal.
Also, I can’t praise Amelda Webster from CloseUp Makeup and Hair enough! She was fantastic and really put me and my bridesmaid at ease. She was happy to do a trial prior to the wedding to make sure we were happy with everything. She made us look and feel beautiful!
Our Advice to Brides and Grooms to be:
Relax and enjoy it! Don’t sweat the small stuff – it’s just not worth it. If you can get away with inviting less guests, we would definitely recommend it, as it really helps to provide that intimate, personal vibe.
Also, just accept that you will cry during your ceremony – don’t try to fight it!
