We were absolutely thrilled to be invited to collaborate with an incredible team of very generous and very talented wedding professionals to surprise this very deserving couple with a surprise vow renewal ceremony.
Melissa and Aaron met and fell in love when they were sweet young teenagers, many years and 3 daughters later they set a date for their wedding to take place in the ceremony gardens at The Glen Hotel in Eight Mile Plains, they shared a wonderful day with family and friends, however the memories of the day remained as just that, memories as sadly the newlyweds never received a single image from their original wedding photographer.
Their story made it’s way back to 2 very thoughtful and generous individuals, Deb of Boots Photography and Anne of The Rose Room who coincidently had been planning a vintage/ retro style photo shoot, incorporating Annes divine vintage china collection.
Before we knew it, Deb had pulled together a team of fantastic wedding suppliers including Giulia Ponticello Mobile Makeup Artist and Tegan from Blossom and Twine. The pinnacle of the day was a big surprise to the couple, Deb arranged for Ciara Hodge from Brisbane City Celebrants, their original Celebrant to put together and perform a surprise vow renewal ceremony mid photo shoot to allow the couple to re-live the special moments of their day only this time have those memories captured.
The Brisbane Wedding Decorators team had the pleasure of styling our elegant arch and creating a ceremony set up to fit with the retro vintage theme, so we draped our ceremony arch with lace and our signature chandelier creating a gorgeous back drop for the surprise vow renewals, without subtracting from the beautiful country surrounds.
The day was a huge success and as you can see the photos by Boots Photography are gorgeous. Having this vow renewal ceremony featured on Polka Dot Bride made this day even more special for all involved.
