A French Resturant Wedding: Kat & Ton

Being massive foodies, Kat & Ton knew that serving a fantastic meal was high on their list of wedding day priorities. So for their reception venue they selected their favourite French restaurant in Brisbane, Montrachet. “In my opinion Montrachet is the best French restaurant in the city, and has been a family favourite for years”, Kat told me. “Feeding our families and friends good food and wine was very important to us. The staff, both kitchen and front of house, made sure the night was perfect with superb food and exceptional service.”

They kept their reception decor simple, arranging their own flowers bought from the flower market with little clusters of jars and tea lights. “I didn’t want to clutter the tables up too much”, she continued, “so the Thursday before the wedding my parents and I went to the Brisbane Flower Markets and pretty much winged what we bought. Along with the baby succulents, I ordered some larger rosettes from The Succulent Garden a month before. We were up until midnight putting together two bouquets – one to carry and one as decoration in the restaurant. To finish off my bouquet I used leftover fabric from my dress and petticoat, and tied a Lapis Lazuli silver pendant onto it. The pendant was an engagement gift from my grandmother’s husband who does silversmithing as a hobby and made the pendant himself.”

Cheesily Fabulous ~ Vegas Baby!

Vegas baby! Meredith send me such a great description of Reed & Alicia’s cheesily fabulous Vegas-themed wedding that I just have to hand this one over to her…

“Reed & Alicia planned their fun, quirky wedding in just six weeks!  When they began looking for ceremony locations & venues, the two came across this small chapel located near the beach where they usually walk with their golden retriever.  After looking inside and seeing the bright red carpet & a cheesy stained glass window (with a rainbow & two doves) at the altar, Reed & Alicia came up with the idea of having a kitschy Las Vegas-themed wedding in this Vegas-esque chapel. They found 60 pairs of “Elvis” sunglasses on Ebay and envisioned having their guests put on these sunglasses right after they were pronounced husband & wife, during their kiss.”

Contrast & Style

This Australian wedding blew me away as soon as I laid eyes on that dress! Shannon & Carl got married in Brisbane and had a vintage glam wedding full of quirky and classically styled delights. I am loving the multi-layered, uber cute Paul Hunt dress and accessories that Shannon rocked (including her amazing bouquet – le swoon indeed.) Her shoes were from Miu Miu and her beautiful hairpiece was found at Chelsea De Luca. The bridesmaids looked equally vintage-gorgeous in their dresses by The Magical Adventures of Dolly. The locations are to die for – the  glamorous ceremony venue, the Tattersall’s Club, contrasts perfectly with rough ‘n ready portrait site and the super trendy, waterside reception which took place at Riverlife, the old Naval Stores beside the Brisbane River. A wedding of contrasts and a wedding of style.

Retrospective

For some reason, I have been sent a lot of amazing stuff from South African photographers and couples recently… I don’t know why but it’s nice to know the South Africans are feeling the Rock n Roll love now too!

Newlywed’s Bianca & Sean got married in Cape Town (where they have now lived for 10 years) at a gorgeous restaurant called Pure at Hout Bay Manor. The wedding was based on a vintage/retrospective theme. The Bridesmaids all chose their own sleek black dresses and the boys wore skinny ties and sharp black suits. Bianca looked every bit the vintage princess in a custom made silver satin and lace wedding gown made by local couturier Cindy Bam and a vintage 1920s hat and veil.

Glamorous. Intimate. Chic

A City Hall ceremony doesn’t have to mean a quicky wedding. Herdah & Jonathan had a pretty damn glamorous but intimate and chic wedding at San Francisco’s City Hall followed by an even more glamorous but similarly unconventional reception at E&O Trading Company. Hardah wore a dress by Lian Carlo Couture  and shoes by Kate Spade. The beautiful flowers and suculents were put together by Herdah’s best friends and bridesmaids, the cupcakes were from Kara’s Cupcakes . Stunning.

A Wedding With No Theme

The only theme behind Sarah and Dominick’s wedding was to be themselves, to rock out and of course to not hide their tattoos! As photographer Lindsey revealed:
