With Celebrant Jamie Eastgate of Brisbane City Celebrants
Victoria Park Golf Real Wedding with Jamie Eastgate, Brisbane City Celebrants
We love receiving real wedding testimonials from our brides and grooms and this Victoria Park Golf Real Wedding with Brisbane City Celebrants Jamie Eastgate, which took place on the Ballroom Terrace was no exception.
Bride and Groom: Lauren and Ben
Wedding Date: April 5th 2014
Ceremony and Reception Location: Victoria Park Ballroom Terrace
Tell us about your Ceremony:
Our ceremony was perfect. Rows of white tiffany chairs with small bunches of baby’s breath on the ends, a cream aisle runner leading to a beautiful archway.
Jamie was fantastic at officiating. He kept the mood light and comfortable, shared jokes with our guests and always looked completely at ease.
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.
Congratulations Lauren and Ben and thank you for giving me the honour of being your Celebrant for your special day. I really enjoyed every moment, your guests were so much fun I just knew you were all in for a fantastic evening. Thank you for sharing your ‘Real Wedding’ with us.
Wishing you both all the very best for your future together.
A special thanks to Justin of Chris Hall Photography for the images, Justin is always fantastic to work with.
