Brooke and Conor went to the same high school, but they were not in the same circle of friends, and didn’t really connect. Some time later, Brooke dropped by the local Sushi store and saw Conor working there. Their eyes met over the Sushi train, and both were immediately mesmerised. They couldn’t take their eyes off each other.

Fast forward a few years, and Brooke and Conor were planning their wedding day. They wanted a relaxed, modern, intimate, and genuine ceremony for just their family and a few close friends. They chose Cedar Creek Lodges at Tamborine Mountain for their ceremony and reception. The couple and their wedding party checked in to the rainforest cabins the day before their wedding, and were able to dress and prepare for the wedding day in their comfy cabins.

Brooke chose a fitted white lace dress from Studio Minc, and the bridesmaids wore boho teal coloured dresses. They all wore Birkenstocks. Hair and Makeup was by Isabella Jane.

Brooke and Conor chose the Simply Elope package from Elope Brisbane, which included experienced wedding professionals celebrant Cheryl Landsberry and photographer Romana Saeheng.

Brooke walked into the ceremony space on the arm of her dad to Jack Johnson’s “I got you”. The ceremony area at Cedar Creek Lodges features a bubbling creek and waterfall, and is set amongst palms, ferns, and tropical rainforest. Time stood still for a few moments as the adorable young couple just gazed at each other, soaking up the tranquil atmosphere.

Conor spoke his vows to Brooke, including, “ I promise to love  you in sun and rain and forever hold you in my care.” Brooke replied with, “ I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow, and forever.”

Following the ceremony and photos, the couple and their family enjoyed a reception in the dining room and then retreated back to the rainforest cabins for the evening, avoiding the need to drive home back down the mountain.
