Helen and Rhys are busy people. They have jobs, a baby, and a home to maintain. They wanted to be married, but didn’t want the fuss, formality or expense of a traditional wedding. The couple chose the Pop Up Wedding package from Elope Brisbane which includes your celebrant, photographer, Kombi transportation, flowers, hair and makeup, ceremony styling and wedding cake. https://elopebrisbane.com.au/elopement…/pop-up-weddings/
Their wedding day was a blustery afternoon, with showers possible, but Helen and Rhys decided to move their ceremony location to a more protected park by the bay at Victoria Point. W.H. Yeo Park was set up by Mel and Deb from Miss Weddings, with an arbour and bamboo chairs. A barrel was added to be used for the signing of the marriage certificates.
Helen had her hair secured with fancy pins in a regal upstyle by Suzie from An Eye for Style. Even in the gusty conditions, her hair was immaculate. Helen chose a natural make up which enhanced her classic features. She chose a boho style wedding dress with drop sleeves from Desert Moon Bridal, which was just gorgeous. Her bouquet consisted of wildflowers with a pop of yellow.
Helen arrived at the ceremony with her bridesmaids, mum, and daughter in the bright orange 1973 Kombi, Busta Rydes. She walked down the aisle to the song, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.
The bridesmaids wore forest green dresses, and the flower girls pretty much did their own thing while looking adorably cute, as one year olds tend to do.
Rhys wore a sage green jacket with a matching tie. Beside him stood his sister, in a striking forest green pants suit, and his brother, relaxed in chinos and a white shirt.
Their ceremony, which I created with lots of input from the couple, was a twist on the traditional marriage ceremony, with a few laughs and a focus on family.
Photographer, Romana Saeheng, captured some photos to cherish of the couple and their guests, before they headed off to their celebratory dinner.
Congratulations to this awesome couple, we just loved working with you.
