With two youngsters and a third on the way, Anastasia and Steven decided on a short and sweet ceremony at Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha. Following their ceremony at the Palm Tree Lawn, they held a picnic where the parents could relax and catch up with family and friends, and the kids could race around with their cousins.

Steven and Anastasia asked the team at Elope Brisbane to coordinate their day as they have such a busy life to navigate. Steve from Kandid Kombi transported the bride and her bridesmaid from her hair and makeup appointment straight to the gardens. Stylist Mel from Miss Weddings installed a white arbour with burgundy flowers and white Americana chairs in the ceremony space at the Palm Tree Lawn. Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry created a simple, relaxed, and funny ceremony so the youngsters wouldn’t have to sit still for too long. Photographer Romana Saeheng took the opportunity to capture some gorgeous family photos while everyone was dressed up and in the same place at the same time. The cake was crafted by Cakes by Simone.

Anastasia sent a cheeky email to Cheryl, “Thankyou so much for a wonderful day yesterday. It went smoothly and quickly, just as we had hoped! (haha).”
