Micro Wedding at Sherwood Arboretum
Elasma and Cameron met at a speed dating event. Cam managed to insult El in the short space allotted to them to chat, however, he was able to turn it around in the break time, and the pair soon clicked. Some time later, as they dined at a restaurant, a fellow diner mentioned to El that she could see that Cam was totally in love with her just from the look on his face.
The couple contacted the team at Elope Brisbane to plan their micro wedding. They invited only immediate family members and chose the tranquil gardens at Sherwood Arboretum for their ceremony. They chose blues and purples for their colours.
El walked into the ceremony on the arm of her son to “Tennessee Whisky” by Chris Stapleton. She wore a slim fitting white pants suit which was absolutely stunning and showed off El’s commitment to fitness. El later told us that this was her Plan B outfit when she didn’t love her original online purchase. Cam was casual in a light blue t shirt and quirky blue suede shoes.
El and Cam wrote their own vows, which, like them, were a little quirky. El said, “ I can’t wait to find out what we will be when we grow up,” along with a couple of maths jokes. And Cam thanked El for her patience with his left of centre sense of humour.
The ceremony started to light raindrops falling, and luckily the Elope Brisbane team had clear plastic umbrellas handy for the couple and their guests. By the team the certificates were signed, rain was tumbling heavier, and we were thankful for the nearby gazebo for the post ceremony photo shoot.
They emailed, “Thank you for making this milestone of our lives really special and intimate. Our families felt included and are very grateful for that. We feel lucky you are the one who married us. Thank you.”
This was our last wedding for 2023, and was such a beautiful, intimate, and genuine memory. Each of our elopements has been unique and special, and really shows how 2023 couples had the assurance to make their day their own idea of perfection.
