HOLY SPIRIT CHURCH NEW FARM &
QUT ROOM THREE SIXTY WEDDING

Anna + Joe

The saying goes, good things come to those who waitA mutual friend of Anna & Joe’s had organised to see a movie, Inception, which they both went along too. Joe & Anna hit it off, although it took a little while after the original meeting for them to start seeing each other!

The proposal story according to Anna. “We decided to go to the Barossa Valley for a week’s holiday. While on a wine tour (yes, we were several wineries in by that point! – Joe says the wine was for liquid courage … haha). Joe said he wanted to ‘for for a walk’ and I happily obliged, without ever suspecting that the proposal was coming. Then he made a short but sweet speech, before getting down on one knee and proposing with the most perfect ring for me. I burst into tears and couldn’t believe it was happening (Joe said I kept repeating the word ‘no’ as he got down on one knee, haha.’) Of course, I said yes, then we spread the happy news with the rest of the wine tour. The tour guide actually spread the news to the remaining wineries on our tour, so a glass of sparkling was waiting for us on arrival. It was a fantastic day.”

The proposal story according to Joe. “well, Anna didn’t exactly happily oblige, she kept asking questions, as to why I wanted to look at the vineyard, when she could see it perfectly well from where we were. Luckily she ended up going along with it.”

Anna & Joe chose to get married at the Holy Spirit Church in New Farm, Brisbane and celebrated with family and friends with awesome dance moves at QUT Room Three Sixty in Gardens Point.

GROOM PREPARATION FOR THE WEDDING DAY

Joe called me on the morning of the wedding, alerting me to a story heading up Brisbane News that the nearby streets were in lockdown due to a siege between a local resident and police. Warning us their might be some hold up with us getting to the boys for their prep photos. Lucky by the time we needed to start, traffic had cleared and groom prep was underway. That would be a first .. haha !!

Anna & Joe were packing up house because after the wedding they were jet setting off on a 3 week honeymoon to Spain & Portugal, before spending the first year of married life in the UK. Joe has a love of maps so we wanted to make sure they were included in his wedding photos.

A SENTIMENTAL BRISBANE HOLY SPIRIT CATHOLIC CHURCH WEDDING

The Brisbane Holy Spirit Catholic Church is a beautiful church located in New Farm. A stunning red brick church with a bell tower that can be seen from all across New Farm. Rich in history, the church was built in 1930, making it one of the oldest catholic churches in Brisbane.

 

A CHURCH CEREMONY AT HOLY SPIRIT CHURCH NEW FARM

The Holy Spirit Church New Farm was chosen by Anna & Joe for their ceremony for sentimental reasons, mainly. Anna’s parents were married there 30 or so years ago, Anna was baptised there, and Anna & her sisters went to primary school next to the church. The Holy Spirit Parish has been a big part of Anna’s childhood and the family’s lives for many years. Joe also fell in love with the simplistic beauty of the church.

The anticipated wait for the bride to arrive. What kind of gown will she be wearing? Will she tear up?

As Te Deum Prelude by Charpentier was played on the church organ by Patricia Marszalek, Anna walked down the aisle on her father’s arm to join Joe at the alter.

Best memory from your wedding day ? 

Anna – “For me, it would be the moment I walked down the aisle with my father
and saw Joe down the end. He had tears in his eyes, and it was such a beautiful moment for me.
I managed not to cry myself (think of the makeup!!)
but it was also thanks to my Dad whispering to me ‘don’t walk too fast girl!

Joe – “I definitely agree. At that moment I was standing at the altar,
trying to keep myself composed,
but on seeing how beautiful Anna looked, I was overcome by emotion.

Father Fransiskus conducted the ceremony and officiated the marriage.

I always love photographing the congratulations photos following the ceremony. Coming out of this quiet, formal gathering into guests bursting with congratulations and big heartfelt hugs. It’s like an unspoken sign of ‘let’s get this party started’.

Family photos are important so there is always time allowed in the wedding day schedule for a group photo and the family photos following the ceremony. While I rarely share the family photos on the blog, in my attempts to keep the blogs shorter for faster loading and a more speedy viewing experience, the couple certainly receive family photos as part of their collection. Prior to the wedding day, I obtain a list from the couple of the family groups they want photos off, to ensure we don’t miss any of the important family photos required. If you wish to see the family photos, contact the couple for the link and password to their private gallery with the full wedding photo collection.

WEDDING PHOTOS FORTITUDE VALLEY – THE WICKHAM, GRAFFITI LANEWAYS, DOUGHNUT TIME AND ALFRED & CONSTANCE

We then headed off for what is one of my favourite parts of the day, the bridal party location photos and couple’s portraits. I was super excited for Anna & Joe’s wedding day after our planning discussions. Anna & Joe loved all the same things I did, graffiti and textured walls, everything that sums up the city lifestyle … oh and doughnuts … haha.

We wandered the streets of Fortitude Valley on foot for their wedding photos. Stopping at various places including The Wickham, used the Matt Blatt roller door, graffiti laneways, Doughnut Time and Alfred & Constance.

Anna & Joe also wanted some photos outside the QUT Chemistry building, however it was dark by that time, so we broke out the flash and did some night photography.

The perfect pause in formalities for some fireworks put on by Brisbane City Council … haha … it’s was the April long weekend so naturally the city council had put on a fireworks display for the people of Brisbane, but we are going with the fireworks were organised especially for the newlyweds. Lucky couple!

And of course a photo on the Room Three Sixty balcony with the Story Bridge in the background. I love creating nostalgic images with iconic Brisbane tourist attractions for couples when they are moving away from Australia.

After the fireworks show which brought everyone onto the balcony, it was time to get back to the speeches.

There was no doubting how excited Anna & Joe were to be getting married. They showed it throughout the entire day with smiles and kisses, even here you see how happy they are while cutting that magnificent wedding cake.

The newlyweds chose This Mess is Mine by Vance Joy as their bridal waltz song for their first dance as husband and wife. Anna & Joe took dance lessons with Perry’s Dance Academy and it showed in their dance number.

What part of your wedding was your top priority ? 

The venue! We really wanted our guests to be well fed, and Room 360 did not disappoint.
The food was amazing, and the staff were attentive and friendly.”

 

What advice would you give other bride or groom’s to-be ?

Don’t sweat the small stuff. It doesn’t matter afterwards. The day goes so fast! Of course, I can say this with the benefit of hindsight, but its so bloody true. There were so many little things I was getting stressed over (ie. the ribbons for the wedding favours doesn’t match the invitations!) but at the end of the day, the wedding was about all our loved ones coming together to celebrate our marriage. And that in itself is overwhelming, to have that much love in the room. I would also recommend taking a moment to take it all in. I remember my married friend telling me to ‘take it all in’ and I’m so glad I listened. I did take just a minute to look around at all our family and friends, see all their faces, as well as the beautifully decorated venue, and then looking over to Joe, and we just sat there for a minute, just holding hands and looking around at everyone. It sounds overly sentimental, but I will also treasure that moment. Also, for the brides – wear comfy shoes! I didn’t have sore feet the whole night, even after walking around for our bridal party pictures and dancing up a storm on the dance floor! I also recommend taking a moment to spend with your spouse and bridal party before going into the reception. Joe and I had some photos taken, just the two of us, and it was a lovely moment. Deb was so professional and accommodating.

 

Bride & Groom special mentions and thank you’s …

Argh, there are so many people to thank!
I feel like I’m making a speech at the Oscars, haha!

The staff at QUT and Cuisine on Cue deserve a shout out, for their amazing service!
Special thank you to Alex from QUT for her amazing help and endless support
(and her quick thinking as she corrected a last minute error on the menu’s
I had printed – thank you so much again Alex!).

Also thank you again to Lisa and Hannah from Willow Tree Creative,
we couldn’t have done it without you and your team.

Also like to thank my Nonna and my godmother, Mary, for making our desserts (biscotti and cannoli!).
Everyone raved about how good the desserts were, and it was great to pay tribute to my Italian heritage.

Thanks to Adam from Decibels for his professionalism, and awesome tunes.

My family, as well of course.
My parents for their endless support and contributions,
and my sisters for putting up with me, particularly as the day due closer!

 

Deb and Terri, of course, for being amazing photographers,
and helping us to enjoy the wedding day by letting us be ourselves,
and allowing us to feel relaxed.

– Anna & Joe
