This wedding had everything in larger-than-life, brilliant, technicolour; accompanied by explosive fun, bubbles, balloons, and a world of magical glitter.
It’s hard to imagine all these elements coming together: but they certainly did so – magnificently, tastefully and oh so very elegantly.
The details – everything was attentively colour co-ordinated from the decorated orange converse sneakers, to the Kombi and the bride’s gorgeously styled retro orange hair and breath-taking sequined dress with orange underlay. (Hair and make-up by Beauty by Corinne). Other theme colours were navy, white and grey.
Bride prep was at the glamorous and very spacious Royal on the Park.
And when the champagne glasses run out, cups will do!
From the Royal, we travelled to Greek Club in Brisbane City. Staff at the Club couldn’t have been more helpful (especially Victoria), and they were so dedicated to ensuring every detail was perfect, guests were looked after and everything ran smoothly and with maximum hospitality.
The groom and his party were dressed in full kilts, honouring the bride’s Scottish background. And they were so handsome and sexy! There is a “thing” called the “swish” when wearing a kilt. It needs to be seen, not described! The groom had perfected this, fabulous to see! The groom was also wearing a plaid, an over the shoulder traditional Scottish cloak in the bride’s family colours.
The ceremony featured a Celtic hand-fasting ceremony (against a Mickey Mouse ballooned wedding arch) with a tie made from traditional Scottish plaid material for the hand-fasting. As you can imagine, the ceremony was filled with funny moments and lots of laughter, but it was also very serious and moving at times, reflecting the depth of feeling between the couple. Annie McGrath (Bundaberg-based wedding celebrant) did a fabulous job of tying all these elements together to create a wonderful and warm wedding ceremony.
The bride’s entrance, and the wedding party exit, was accompanied by a bagpiper.
The beautiful, Disney-themed wedding box was made by a friend of the bride.
A fortifying drink which, for the bride, required an assisted veil lift.
Assisted veil-lifting for a kiss.
Owing to COVID-19 restrictions, a number of people were unable to attend the ceremony, so the bride live-streamed the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, location photos were taken outside the Greek Club (featuring a Kandid Kombi, Busta Rydes) and in near-by Musgrave Park.
The evening climaxed with the reception and cake-cutting, and the bridal waltz, in the magically, and wonderfully decorated Aegean Room at the Greek Club. The cake, created by the talented Bec (the Cookie Jar and More) reflected the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Disney theme of the day.
