Criona and Michael had just one request for their micro wedding at Kangaroo Point – they wanted their pup, Fenton, to be included in the ceremony. This was no problem for the team at Elope Brisbane, who are always delighted to work with furbabies.

Stylist, Miss Weddings, created a circular arbour as the backdrop for the ceremony which was held by the Brisbane River on a glorious afternoon. Criona’s family, all still in Ireland, watched the ceremony via Zoom, and the couple can’t wait to jet back to Ireland as soon as they can to celebrate their wedding twice over.

Celebrant Cheryl told the story of the couple’s meeting at a beer garden at Southbank. Criona was chatty, and entertained Michael with tales of her life, her adventures, and her misadventures. Luckily, Michael was an eager listener, and the couple have been together ever since.

Photographer Romana snapped the couple with and without the star of the wedding, Fenton, and also took the opportunity to take photos of family and friends who had gathered to celebrate.

The celebrations then continued at a nearby waterfront restaurant, where the couple dined and danced until late into the evening.

Congratulations to you both!
