Bree & Brendan
This gorgeous Northern QLD celebration is intimate and beautiful. The backdrop is a hidden location, quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and so lovely for Bree and Brendan.
Bree tells their story. “Brendan & I worked collectively for 6 plus years prior to we started dating. We had both secretly fancied every single other for a extended time but neither of us had been forth coming in saying so which is why it took so extended. Our boss played cupid, operating back and forth in between us, telling us what the other stated, attempting to get us together. It worked! ”
The gorgeous photography nowadays is by Marina Locke Photography . I enjoy Marina’s capture of light and her beautiful captures of the really like, moments and facts of the day.
Bree’s colourful bouquet consisted of “David Austin roses, assorted cottage flowers & assorted herbs. We each adore cooking & gardening so the addition of herbs personalised our flower arrangements.”
All Strings Attached traveled to entertain the guests, Bree remembers “Band members Emily, Nick and our bother in -law Scottie traveled 6 hours to play an amazing mix of Celtic gypsy music that had guests aged from three years to 84 years, up and dancing. ”
Bree wore a V Neck gown from Saja.
Bree describes the day as ” Better than we could have ever imagined. OK, perhaps 3 sentences. A little informal intimate gathering of our nearest & dearest in a magical setting. ”
Of their photographer, Bree says “We fell in adore with Marina Locke’s use of lens flare in her shots. The clouds sadly came out on the day but Marina was nevertheless able to make our wedding photographs shine. ”
As her ‘something borrowed’, Bree wore jewellery her sister had worn on her own wedding day from Sapian Arts.
Pretty My Love styled the wedding, the guests and the newlyweds celebrated on the verandah of Captain’s Lodge in Agnes Water.
As wedding favors, guests received “Brown paper bag travel packs which consisted of an apple, home produced muffin & jam drops, assorted nuts, dried fruit & sesame snaps. ”
Bree created a caramel & burnt fig jam mud cake as the wedding cake. She recalls, ” My good friend Julia iced it & arranged some flowers on top the morning of our wedding. Brendan’s father, Ivan, a forestry worker, discovered us the best wood cutting for our rustic cake.”
The whole wedding was catered by Bree, Brendan and their families. Bree recalls “It took two days but the finish result was nicely worth it. Some of the most memorable moments for us leading up to the wedding was spent in the kitchen with our loved ones. The top quality of food was really important to us which is why we decided to do it ourselves. Platters of finger food & mini tastings of our favourite dishes flowed throughout the evening including Vietnamese rice paper rolls with nouc cham (created by a big table of family & close friends), Herb falafels with roast capsicum hummus, Roasted pumpkin & fetta mini quiche (produced by my sister, Meagan), Chorizo, tomato & butter bean stew with sour dough, Child potatoes with guacamole, Vietnamese chicken wings with ginger dipping sauce, and Lamb madras curry with my Nana’s yellow rice. Dessert consisted of Mini black forest trifles in jam jars (Produced by my close friends Julia and Sheeny), Brendan’s pavlova with passionfruit curd and elderflower cream (made by his cousin Rebecca… Brendan was busy..lol) & Brendan’s apple crumble & custard (produced by the man himself ) We also cheated and purchased some macaroons. ”
