Elopement at City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane
Karlee and Tristan wanted their marriage ceremony to be just about the two of them, so they planned an intimate elopement with just two special witnesses in the City Botanic Gardens, Brisbane.
The couple chose a timber arbour with double draping in white and burgundy, adorned with proteas. This was set up in front of the fountain by Miss Weddings. The proteas matched the bouquet which was beautifully arranged by Capalaba Carnations, who also created a simple bouttoniere for groom, Tristan.
Tristan arrived at the ceremony space with his best man/witness, and they both looked dapper in suits and shiny shoes. Tristan also brought along Karlee’s favourite scented candle from Glasshouse candles, and the delicious scent wafted through the ceremony area. Tristan and Jordan waited eagerly at the arbour for the bride to arrive.
Karlee and her maid of honour/witness, Morgane, were dropped at Government house and made their way down the stairs into the Botanic Gardens. Morgane wore a slinky navy dress, matching with best man, Jordan’s, navy suit. Karlee looked absolutely striking, wearing a midi length fit and flare Aje dress with pearl adornments. Her short, dark hair was curled in a cute Parisian bob, and her lips were painted crimson red. A white veil topped off her very chic look.
Their ceremony celebrated the couple’s story and life together so far, and the couple made their own tender vows to each other, before topping their ceremony off with an enthusiastic kiss.
After some photos around the gardens, the couple were joined by their clans for some family portraits. They later celebrated with a pint or two at Felons Brewing, at Howard Smith Wharves.
