We started the day at the Issada store in Bulimba where the girls were getting their make up done. It’s a lovely little store with bright white walls and natural light flowing through the glass windows. We then split up as Ben went to the boys hotel room for prep shots and Hope followed the girls to Alice’s parents home for the details shots and finishing touches.
Alice had chosen a beautiful strapless lace wedding dress with an embellished belt to add a little sparkle. Complimenting her classic style was a simple bouquet of baby’s breath that her bridesmaids had put together for her. Once the girls were ready to go we headed off to Alice’s former High School All Hallows where the ceremony was held.
All Hallows is in the the middle of Brisbane city overlooking the Brisbane river. It’s Historic chapel with it’s high ceilings and archways has a regal charm about it. Alice beamed as she walked down the aisle with her Dad as both Matt + Alice kept their tears in check. They looked so happy together you couldn’t wipe the smile from their faces all day.
After the ceremony the Bridal party headed off to New Farm Park for their portraits. It was a beautiful day with the sun shining which always brings a lot of people to the park but we managed to maneuver around the crowds. The reception was held at Lightspcae Brisbane which is a trendy warehouse venue in The Fortitude Valley. The food was prepared by Dalton hospitality and it was delicious!
After all the formalities had concluded and it was time for the dancing to kick off the groomsmen had devised a plan. They organised a ‘dance off’ between all the groomsmen and to keep it fair they had to wear a bag on their head to stop them from stealing dance moves. Well little did Matt know it was all a ruse to get him to dance all by himself and he went for it and had a blast. It was such a fun night and we loved working with Matt + Alice. They were just super happy and relaxed and enjoyed every minute of the day.
