Elopement at Minnippi Parkland, Tingalpa
Self-confessed flower child, C, imagined her wedding day as simple, genuine, Earthy, and authentic. She and her fiancé, D, chose the wetlands at Minnippi Parkland at Tingalpa for the green, natural landscape.
C added lace from the sleeves of her mother’s wedding dress to her bouquet, and wrapped the stems in a white lace handkerchief from her grandmother. She wore a simple white dress. Groom, D, wore a forest green linen shirt and chinos. Their adorable daughters wore linen dresses in ochre and sunflower, with matching headbands.
On their wedding day, the little family arrived at the parklands together, and met up with the team at Elope Brisbane. Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry read a personlised ceremony reflecting the couple’s love of family and nature. They added in a line from a wedding in Avatar and the couple each wrote their own sweet vows to read.
Photographer, Romana Saeheng, immortalised the moment with some beautiful family photos under the ancient trees in the park. The overcast day made for natural photos, and the green hues of the parklands provided varying natural settings.
After enjoying a home-baked wedding cake, the adorable family set out on a camping trip/honeymoon up the coast.
My day was topped off by receiving this appreciative text: “Thanks so much for everything!!! We had a perfect morning!”
