I love when couples do their wedding their way, injecting their personalities in to their day and creating a day that instead of following tradition, is a true celebration of them, their unique traits and their love.
Lesley and Craig did a phenomenal job at doing their wedding their way. Creating a wedding day that had them completely relaxed, full of laughter and fun, and above all else was a true celebration of their love.
In the early stages of planning a wedding, it’s a great idea to take a step back and decide what elements are really important to you both, and also perhaps what bits just aren’t of relevance to you, then you can really begin to design your dream day and make it a day that both you and your guests can really enjoy every minute of.
When planning their Brisbane Powerhouse wedding ceremony, to Lesley and Craig it was important not to leave their guests straight after the ceremony and head off with their photographer as is the schedule for most weddings, instead they opted to have their couple and wedding party photos before the ceremony, incorporating a ‘first look’ photo shoot, where the photographer captures the couples reaction to each other when they see each other for the very first time.
After the ‘first look’ took place, the couples wedding location photo shoot followed.
Once the couples photos together were complete, their wedding party joined them for some pre-wedding photos.
As all the main photos were done before the ceremony had commenced, they arrived relaxed and excited getting their ceremony off to a cracking start!
After discussing in detail their vision for the day, I designed and created a ceremony that was happy and fun while simultaneously being heartfelt, meaningful and genuine.
Above all else their ceremony felt like a true celebration which as a modern Celebrant is something I strive for in every ceremony I deliver.
I was thrilled to bits to receive the following fantastic feedback and 5 star rating from the couple.
“Cara was the Celebrant for our wedding at the Brisbane Powerhouse in August.
We could not be happier that she was there with us. She was helpful throughout the organisation of our ceremony, and set the perfect happy and joyful tone on the day.
It was a wonderful day for us, and I highly recommend that you have Cara join you for your own wedding.”
Having already had their bridal photo shoot take place, as soon as their ceremony concluded, they were able to have a quick group photo, before accompanying their guests straight to their reception – instead of being separated from them, so they got to celebrate and party with the guests from the get go which I personally think is pretty damn fabulous!
A huge thank you to this adorable couple for choosing me to be your Celebrant for your Brisbane Powerhouse wedding, what fun we had and I am so happy I got to be a part of your special day.
