A French styled warehouse wedding at Vieille Branche in Albion Brisbane
Alana & Ian celebrated their wedding at Vieille Branche, a French styled warehouse space in the heart of Albion in Brisbane.
The day started with Alana getting ready at their house. Alana wore a gown from one of my favourite wedding gown designers, a stunning Rue De Seine gown available through Babushka Ballerina. Followed by a first look session in Alana & Ian’s backyard before heading over to Vieille Branche.
Imported French furniture along with vintage pieces gathered from the countryside, fill the Vieille Branche warehouse, adding rustic charm and incredible beauty. Alana loves flowers and had Chris from Wild at Heart Flowers filled the space with colourful flowers and an amazing floral sculpture hanging from the rafters, and of course Alana’s stunning bridal bouquet.
Alana & Ian walked down the aisle to “Got To Get You Into My Life” by The Beatles. Their friend and talented artist Chris Ellery wrote them a beautiful short story as a reading for the ceremony.
With the ceremony over, it was time to enjoy the celebrations with great music, yummy food and beverages.
Alana & Ian’s favourite memories of the day were “Dancing and all the love in the room”. Alana & Ian started the dancing with their first dance to “You and Me” by Penny and the Quarters.
Advice Alana & Ian would give to other couple’s getting married “Keep it simple, spend big on a few items, choose vendors that you admire and a venue you love and feel comfortable in.” and “As introverts we were very nervous for the big day but it was so very amazing and an experience we’re so so glad and grateful to have had.“
