A Vintage inspired Real Wedding at Roma Street Parklands Sunset Glade

Bride and Groom: Tanya & Richard

Wedding Date: 7 March 2014

Ceremony Location: Sunset Glade, Roma Street Parklands

Tell us about your vision for your wedding:

We wanted something simple, vintage and to incorporate a hint of the tropics (I grew up in the tropics and we both love tropical places).

Tell us about what Brisbane Wedding Decorators provided for your ceremony:

They listened to what I wanted, set up the ceremony, and even collected frangipanis (as well as used the ones I provided) and decorated the ceremony area… and this was done all arranged over email!!! FANTASTIC!

Tell us about your reception:

We had our reception at Wesley House, 140 Ann St Brisbane CBD. City view location and a blank canvas to do whatever you like.

Sage Café (Jamie) catered the event. The view and the food were the most talked about features of our wedding, which was exactly what we wanted – good food, good view!

What we loved

We loved hanging out with our nearest and dearest – family and friends.

We had a small wedding (58 guests) so it was just a lovely number. Don’t get me wrong, it was a very overwhelming day and the usual stress leading up to a wedding, I think what made it so grand was after the reception, our closets friends all went out in the city afterwards and recapped the night and ended it with such fun!

Describe your experience with Brisbane Wedding Decorators:

Incredibly easy to work with. Like I said, everything was planned over email, which when leading up to a wedding the less stress the better.

The booking form was great and allowed me to add and take away bits of the set up to make the set up as personalised as possible. And the fact that Cara walked around the gardens and picked up fallen frangipani’s to add to our ceremony was just amazing!

Tell us about any of your wedding suppliers that you were impressed with and why:

Angeline Sees Photography – Great at capturing real, un-posed, natural photos! A real eye for capturing emotion.

Hair: Kim Snare – the best in the business!

Make-up: Lucy Knott, very professional and very affordable! (I am a makeup artist in a previous career so she was fantastic!)

Sage Café: amazing food, amazing owner (Jamie). We had a banquet style menu and it was beautiful.

Get a Photobooth: Hamish is the booker and he was very accommodating with times for set up etc. It was such a hit at the reception!

Florist: Diamond Flower Co – I was blown away with the flowers we received. They were more then I ever imagined. She really enjoys her work and you can tell that through her art.

A word of advice to bride and grooms to be:

Pick a theme and stick to it and as hard as it is, do what you want to do – not what others expect of you.

Keep track of your expenses on a worksheet. Keep it simple, keep it to people you know want to celebrate this day with you and book a honeymoon!!!

A vintage styled Roma Street Parklands wedding at Sunset Glade

We were so excited when we received the brief for Tanya and Richards wedding, ‘an elegant vintage feel with a hint of the tropics’.

This brief gave such an exciting twist on the classical vintage wedding styling that we often see and unleashed the opportunity to incorporate an abundance of fresh colourful and gorgeously fragrant tropical florals in to this stunning Roma Street Park ceremony setup.

An amazing retro vintage styled surprise vow renewal ceremony

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.
