Kirsty and Stephan’s ceremony brief was for a relaxed, informal, low key, chilled ceremony.
With friends and family travelling from all over the world, they still wanted to commemorate their marriage with a special event, but didn’t want the fuss and drama that can accompany wedding planning.
Stephan and Kirsty chose the Bayview ceremony site at Redland Bay Golf Club for their ceremony. The hilltop looks over the golf course and out to Moreton Bay. Mel and Deb from Miss Weddings set up an arch with light pink florals, and set out white Americana chairs. The colour scheme for the wedding was sage green and dusty pink.
Kirsty walked in to the ceremony on the arm of her brother, Ben, to an acoustic version of the song, “Latch” by Sam Smith. The couple decided to forego having wedding attendants, instead, having their gorgeous pup, Cooper, deliver the wedding rings.
In keeping with the light atmosphere, a little humour was included in the ceremony, with celebrant Cheryl Landsberry telling the story of how the couple matched over their shared love of their pet cats.
Stephan started his vows with, “my vows are going to be short and direct, like you, Kirsty” which had the guests all chuckling. Kirsty was ready for his wit, and had prepared vows which included a promise to support Stephan, even if he continued with his proclivity towards buying impractical cars.
After walking out of the ceremony hand in hand to a shower of flower petals, the couple made their way around the golf course for a photo shoot. Afterwards, they joined their guests on the deck of the golf club for drinks, canapes, and a whole lot of celebrating.
