KATE + PETER

Peter totally blindsided Kate with his marriage proposal. Kate tells me she knew Peter had the ring but he still managed to surprise her. Kate said “He put the ring and a note asking me to marry him in a box from a dress store that I love and had Australia Post package it up. Then he casually approached me on a Saturday afternoon with some ‘mail’. I didn’t suspect a thing and thought that I was receiving a VIP gift from the dress store!“.

Kate & Peter planned their wedding to have a modern urban flavour with Brisbane city the perfect destination. They celebrated with 90 of their closest family and friends.

Kate & Peter prepared for their wedding day at the New Inchcolm Hotel & Suites. The impeccable style and unexpected heritage character of this boutique hotel is charming and luxurious, perfect for their morning before the big day begins.

These two are without a doubt soulmates. They were meant to find each other in this world and live a long and happy life together. They calm each others nerves and the one that brings a smile to the other’s face. Wishing you both a very happy ever after.

Kate & Peter chose to have a first look session at the New Inchcolm Hotel to get the bridal portraits out of the way, because spending time with their guests was a high priority for Kate & Peter.

We then travelled to the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens for the remainder of their bridal portraits.

Kate & Peter were taken by Mirra the moment they walked through the bronzed French doors to view the Fortitude Valley wedding venueMirra Private Dining hasn’t earned the reputation of being one of Brisbane’s most unique wedding venues for no reason. Kate & Peter thought the interiors were striking and loved the high ceilings of the converted warehouse, the opulent light fixtures and flexibility of the space. They wanted to have their ceremony and reception in the same venue to make it easier for their guests. Located in one of Fortitude Valley’s laneways, it is easily accessible to transport and hotels in the Brisbane CBD. Excellent food and beverages was a high priority too.

The evening ceremony commenced at 5.00pm in Mirra’s main reception room, surrounded by the warmth of the luxurious furnishings as the backdrop to the couple saying their I-do’s.

Kate walked down the aisle to ‘Pachelbel’s Canon in D’. Their vows were officiated by marriage celebrant Krista Webb from Celebrated Moments.

Following the ceremony, we headed straight into the family photos while the guests mingled in the Long Room which was decked out with comfortable lounges for guests to relax. After the ceremony, the main ceremony room was turned over into a cocktail style reception space.

A few more bridal portraits with Kate & Peter, taking in the beautiful decor around Mirra and the iconic ‘Tonight’ sign before joining their guests.

One of the huge advantages of Mirra, is the beautiful decor that already exists and flexibility of the space.  Kate put together the decorations for the kids table and tells me “We know our limits with crafting and DIY and kept it to a minimum!“.

It was time to get the reception started. First a few speeches with the rest of the night to mingle with their guests and a myriad of dishes served from a cocktail style menu throughout the evening.

Kate & Peter sharing the funniest moment from their wedding day …

When our cheese wheel cake proved to be so popular
that one of our friends ran off with a large wedge of cheese!”

Kate & Peter chose to spend their honeymoon on the South Island of New Zealand.


 

Kate & Peter share with me their priorities from when they were planning their wedding day …

The ceremony, the food and beverages, general guest experience, and the photography.”

and their favourite memory from the day …

Being announced as husband and wife in front of all of our cheering family and friends”.

What advice would you give other bride and grooms …

It’s difficult to do when you’re planning but try not to get caught up in the small details, focus on what really matters – if it won’t matter a year from now, minimise the energy you expend on it! The day goes very quickly, so take a few moments to soak up the experience. We’re so glad we had our photos done with Deb beforehand – it was the only time we were alone all day!”.

Make sure you’ve delegated to competent people from the day before so that you don’t have to stress about any practicalities. My brother Michael did a spectacular job as our MC and he was all over it – he did everything from safety-pinning my bustle when it snapped to ensuring that some portions of our cake were set aside for us.”
