Colmslie Beach Reserve wedding with Cara

What an incredible day Michelle and Lindsay’s Colmslie Beach Reserve wedding was. Set in the stunning Colmslie Beach Reserve in the middle of jacaranda season, in the middle of the flowering jacaranda trees.

Not only did I have the honour of being the couples Celebrant, I was so excited to also be tasked with creating their gorgeous ceremony set up via my décor hire business Brisbane Wedding Decorators, including a lavish cocktail hour setting to bring their dream wedding vision to life. More on that later.

For their ceremony setup, the couple included thoughtful details, like our lace edge rose petal cones and a refreshing drinks bar. For the ceremony setting, they opted for a simple and elegant wedding arbour with a fresh floral arrangement, in the timeless and neutral tones of ivory with greenery.

Before you scroll through the rest of the images, I need to give a huge shout out to Kate from Twig and Fawn Photography. The quantity and variety of angles that Kate captured, are what you would expect when multiple Photographers are shooting, yet Kate captured all of these shots and did an incredible job!

Michelle looked stunning as she arrived with her bridesmaids, then made her way down the aisle with her Dad.

The couple opted for a simple, ceremony which was light while still being meaningful, and above all else thoroughly enjoyable. They included their own surprise vows to each other, and had a little fun with their ‘I Do’s.

You will notice we like to deliver parts of the ceremony from the side, allowing your Photographer to capture beautiful moments like this without us being in shot. We’ll be back in the middle when we need to be to coordinate the ‘I Do’s’ rings and vows.

We love this shot of Michelle, glowing with happiness, enjoying the ceremony, and the words that together we’ve carefully chosen.

Kate from Twig and Fawn Photography did such an exceptional job in capturing every special moment of the ceremony, like this shot of Michelle reaching out to comfort Lindsay as he got a little choked up with the emotion when reading his wedding vows.
