Emma and Callum loved the beautiful green grounds at Redland Bay Golf Club, and chose this for their wedding ceremony and reception. The Golf Club has three different ceremony areas to choose from, but as their wedding day was a little windy, the couple decided to switch to the gazebo, which provided some protection from the elements.
Callum and Emma planned their wedding day a year in advance, so had plenty of time to attend to so many details for their celebrations.
The colour palette of the wedding was dusty pink and eucalyptus green, which was carried through from the bridesmaid dresses to the cupcakes.
Emma wore a beautiful lace dress from @luv bridal, and wore a white floral headband in her hair with a veil. Callum was very handsome in a three piece grey suit with a dusty pink tie.
The dusty pink colour was continued in the florals, with Emma’s bouquet, Callum’s boutonniere, and florals on the signage created by Mary from @lillicreek. The elegant fresh flowers were quite a feature.
Taking a peek into the reception room, a lolly buffet (also in pale pinks and greens) had been set up by Simone with cupcakes in the same hues.
The room (and also the ceremony arbour) was styled by Beautiful Illusions. The round tables featured white cloths with sparkly gold runners and gold chair sashes. The napkins were pale pink. The centrepieces were glass pyramids with foliage, white and pink flowers, and fairy lights.
So many little elements of the wedding really added to the ambience and made this a wedding to remember.

Wedding at Rainforest Gardens Mount Cotton
Rainforest Gardens is located atop Mount Cotton in the Redlands, south east of Brisbane city. The property features over 20 acres of tropical gardens, with a purpose-built wedding ceremony platform which overlooks a lilly padded pond with fountains. Timber benches are terraced into the hillside for guest seating. The gardens are always shady, even on a very warm Brisbane summer day. A new pavilion has been constructed in the event of rainy weather, and the venue also provides a built-in sound system for ceremonies. You might recognise this venue from the movie Ticket to Paradise with Julia Roberts and George Clooney.
Gorgeous bride, Katie, and her handsome man, Jerome, are absolutely besotted with each other. Their excitement and passion gave a real buzz to their wedding day and guests were uplifted to see two such genuine humans seal their joyous connection. The kiss is a moment of euphoria in the wedding ceremony, after all the build up and anxiety of arriving at the wedding venue is finally released and the couple celebrate their official newlywed status.
Katie wrote, “Cheryl, thank you so much for being our absolutely amazing celebrant. We are so happy you were part of our special day and part of all the enerfy and magic the day brought. Than you for being so patient, kind, and funny with us. We had so many beautiful comments about how you performed and spoke during the ceremony. You really kept us all calm, relaxed, and grounded. And thank you for being so prompt with lodging all the paperwork and all the emails and calls!”

When Elyse and Todd were thinking about the vision for their wedding, they knew they didn’t want a traditional wedding. Musician Todd is more at home in denim than a tuxedo, and Elyse couldn’t imagine herself in a white, frilly dress, so they settled on a red and black wedding theme.
Elyse looked absolutely stunning in a red wedding dress, and their daughter wore a matching red flower girl dress. Elyse’s bridesmaid wore black, as did the parents. The group met at New Farm Park with celebrant Cheryl Landsberry and photographer Romana Saeheng from Elope Brisbane.
They exchanged their legal marriage vows before setting sail on a honeymoon cruise.
We were thrilled to receive a 5 star rating from Elyse, “I highly recommend Romana and Cheryl! Romana is amazing with photos and has a fun and bubbly personality, and Cheryl was a lovely celebrant. We loved how she helped create an intimate ceremony for us. Thank you ladies so much!”
When they first met, Troy noticed that Kirstie just didn’t stop talking. He liked that he could just smile and nod and not have to say too much. Kirstie noticed that Troy was a great listener. He never interrupted, and just let her talk and talk. It was a match made in heaven, and Troy realised this after about 6 years of knowing each other, and asked Kirstie to be his girlfriend. That was eight years before the day that Troy and Kirstie said, “I do” at Redland Bay Golf Club. Kirstie’s brother and his mate were Flower Men, and dispersed rose petals along the aisle before Kirstie walked down the aisle accomapnied by her dad. The bridesmaids were Kirstie’s sisters and friends, and they wore dusty pink dresses.
Kirstie wrote, “Thank you so much for performing our wedding. We had the most beautiful day. You had everyone laughing and crying and that’s exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments about you and how you were the perfect fit for our day. We will definitely be leaving you a 5 star review and be recommending you to family and friends. ”

Teneill and James wanted to be married, but they didn’t want all the drama that can accompany a big wedding, so they asked the Team at Elope Brisbane to create a relaxed micro wedding with just their immediate families. Following their intimate ceremony at Rainforest Gardens, Mount Cotton, the combined family celebrated with dinner at a local restaurant.
Teneill walked into the gardens on the arm of her dad, accompanied by the song, “All of me” by John Legend – the Lindsey Sterling string version.
Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry told the couple’s cute story of meeting as teens working at Bunnings. Their family grew with the addition of their furbaby, Beau. Together, Teneill and James enjoy a road trip, with James driving and Teneill in charge of tunes and snacks. They are looking forward to living each day together with maximum happiness and laughter.
Rainforest Gardens has so many lush photo locations – photographer Romana Saeheng captured newlywed photos around the property.
Contact the team at Elope Brisbane to plan your relaxed and intimate micro wedding so you can just relax and enjoy your wedding day.
The brief for Bobbie and Bob’s micro wedding was Simple, Geniune, and Relaxed.
