Wedding at The Laguna, Sirromet Winery, Mount Cotton
Michelle and Dan chose the beautiful chapel on the lagoon at Sirromet Wines for their October wedding. Early in their planning, the couple realised that their wedding day would fly by so quickly, so they prioritised spending time with their guests when scheduling the day.
In their quest to capture every precious moment, Dan and Michelle organised to meet photographer, Samuel Parke, before their ceremony, so that the couple and wedding party photos wouldn’t cut into their party time. They asked celebrant Cheryl Landsberry to streamline ceremony, ensuring that their 3:30pm ceremony would be wrapped up by 3:50pm, allowing 10 minutes for the group photo, and the celebrations to commence at 4:00pm.
Michelle wore a gorgeous white gown with a fitted bodice and fluted skirt by Sophia Tolli. She cut a striking silhouette as she stepped out down the pathway towards her waiting groom. Groom Dan wore a mid blue suit, and the groomsmen and bridesmaids wore navy.

School teachers Sammi and Aaron chose to marry during the school holidays. They decided on a morning wedding at the Courthouse Restaurant at Cleveland. The couple envisioned a super chill and authentic ceremony, keeping it small and intimate with just their closest loved ones.
Breaking with tradition, Sammi and Aaron decided to walk down the aisle together, along with their three young children. They chose the song, “Palaces of Montezuma” by Grinderman for their entrance. Very cool!
Aaron and Sammi met up with photographer, Steve Doyle, for some classic black and white photos at the historic Courthouse before the ceremony. Against the timeless black and white floor tiles, Steve captured some elegant pictures.
The couple decided to create a Love Letters and Wine Box during their ceremony. They placed their printed wedding vows and a copy of their wedding menu in this special keepsake box.
What an absolutely stunning wedding! It was such a joy to be surrounded by such a lovely family.
Sammi left this much appreciated review,
“Cheryl was warm and welcoming when we met her at our first appointment. She gave us so many options and suggestions for our ceremony.
Cheryl is very organised and we received a wedding checklist folder which really put our minds at ease when gathering information for our ceremony.
Cheryl brought a smile to everyone’s faces throughout our ceremony. Her calm nature helped me to get through those first few anxious minutes.”

Wet weather wedding at Suttons Beach Rotunda, Redcliffe
Despite best efforts to keep an eye on the forecast, sometimes weather events can just come out of nowhere. And this is exactly what happened on Tahni and Caleb’s wedding day.
Just days after the announcement of El Nino in Australia, we were hit with a brief but ferocious downpour. As the styling team set up the wedding arbour on the Redcliffe foreshore, the winds intensified. No amount of tent pegs and sand bags seem to hold the arbour in place. And the dark clouds started rolling across the sky as 3pm approached.
The team at Elope Brisbane consulted with groom, Caleb, and a quick decision was made to relocate the micro wedding a hundred metres up the beach, under the protection of the iconic Suttons Beach Pavilion.
As bride Tahni arrived, the rain had already started bucketing down. Guests under the pavilion were drenched by the sideways rain, driven in by the gusty winds. This couple, though, decided that nothing would stop them from becoming husband and wife, and decided to just, “Go for it”.
In a most memorable walk down the aisle, Tahni, under inside outed umbrella, powered along the path, determined to reach her man. Her windswept hair could not hide the grin on her face, as Tahni and Caleb laughed and embraced the craziness of the moment.
Celebrant, Cheryl Landsberry, asked the guests if they minded skipping the boring bits, then proceeded straight to the legally required aspects of ceremony. With a couple of, “I do’s” and the signing of some rather soggy certificates, Tahni and Caleb were legally wed in one of the most memorable ceremonies the Elope Brisbane team has seen.
The positive crew of the pair rallied around, holding fast the arbour, holding up protective umbrellas, and generally cheering and living in the moment.
Tahni and Caleb are planning a renewal of vows later in the year with a few more serene photos, but I just don’t imagine this will match their rather remarkable wedding in the rain.
