Michael and Philip’s glamorous morning wedding ceremony

Michael and Philip’s glamourous beachside morning wedding ceremony was everything dreams are made of!

With groom Michael well known and acclaimed within the Brisbane Wedding community for planning luxurious industry events, naturally every detail was thoughtfully planned and designed, resulting in a truly beautiful day full of love, happiness and laughter.

This gorgeous wedding was so special to us. Not only was Jamie given the honour of being the Celebrant for the happy couple, as friends of the two grooms we are invited to stay and celebrate as guests.

The two grooms arrived and walked down the aisle together and on Jamie’s cue, the guests cheered enthusiastically and we all got major goose bumps, feeling just how loved these two are by all their guests.

Michael and Philip worked with Jamie to design a ceremony that celebrated their love and shared the story of their 13 years together.

Balancing their humour and zest with a meaningful sincere celebration, both the grooms and their guests were laughing out loud one minute, then shedding happy tears the next. Very much the same mix of emotions the guests continued to have later when the epic speeches were delivered over lunch.

One simple point of difference that contributed to the success of the day, was opting for a mid morning wedding ceremony, followed directly by a lunch time reception.

The two grooms opted for a mid morning ceremony on a week day which took place at Noosa’s Hidden Grove on the foreshore of Noosa beach. Following the ceremony, instead of the guests being separated from the couple for photos, everyone took a short stroll along Noosa’s Main Beach to the reception at Sails Noosa where the celebrations began with flowing drinks, canapes and even an oyster bar before guests were seated on long tables decorated with soft pink flowers.

To the guests surprise they were invited to choose their own entrees and main from the menu. Everyone was in awe at how delicious each dish was! The service from Sails Restaurant was exceptional with glasses always topped up and staff always at the ready.

After the couples bridesmaids delivered their amazing speeches, and lunch concluded, the band began to play and the dance floor instantly filled, with Michael stealing the show (and the mic) to present his own surprise rendition of Nicki Minaj.

The fun didn’t stop there, when the long lunch reception wrapped up at 4pm, the guests headed off to a nearby venue for the optional after party to continue the celebrations, while the grooms made the most of the golden afternoon light heading off to a quiet beach with their Photographer and Cinematographer for sunset shots with their bridesmaids.
