Katie and William married on a glorious Autumn day at the Sandstone Point Hotel. This venue is a Brisbane classic. It combines style with Queensland casual. And it’s a great “all-in-one” venue. Couples and family can stay at the neighbouring Sandstone Point Resort, which caters well for both adults and children. The venue has several wedding locations to choose from and a number of spots which are all in easy walking or driving distance for location photos.
Shade can be difficult to come by at this venue, however. So it’s best to plan your wedding for late afternoon so that you can avoid the bright sun in the early afternoon, and to give you the opportunity to take advantage of the beautiful sunset options the venue offers.
Katie and her beautiful bridesmaids got ready in the near-by Resort, assisted by Katie’s parents.From there, it was just a short walk to the ceremony location.
Katie and William chose one of the open-air locations, the Water’s Edge, with the ocean in the background. The ceremony, officiated by Chelsea McNamara, was held under brilliant, sunny skies and concluded with a brilliant cascade of bio-degradable confetti.
We then walked, and drove, to a number of the venue’s many locations for photos of the couple and their bridal party. We finished up towards sunset of the venue’s beautiful fairy light festooned private jetty and the giant fig tree similarly lit up near the restaurant.
The reception was held in the cellar room with all the usual highlights: cake-cutting, bridal waltz, bouquet toss, garter toss and the ever popular shoe game.
Katie is an organiser with flair, and did the wedding event styling herself, as well as the flowers. Her amazing dress was supplied by Ravish Bridal, her cake by Angela Dahler, with hair and make-up by Sass and Braids, and Lacey Clark respectively.
It was a truly beautiful day.
