Caroline and Brent
Can colour, leopard print and the sassiest Brisbane couple you’ve seen in a long time perk up your Wednesday afternoon? In a rainforest? Today is the gorgeous and fun wedding of Caroline and Brent!
‘Stolen’ from their wedding vows here’s the story of how Caroline and Brent met. “For those of you that don’t know the story so far Brent and Caroline first met in 1998 when they were both attending Film College. Brent was 17, just out of school and had high hopes to become the next Quentin Tarentino. Caroline was 19 and had high hopes, about what it was unknown, but high hopes nonetheless. While working together on a short film called ‘A SCIENCE FICTION’ they found more interest in each other than the poor story line and became fast friends. Their weekends quickly turned into movie marathons accompanied by home-made calzones, pavlova, and cask wine.
By the end of the year they were living together in a share house at Woolloongabba and in the following six months their relationship survived their unruly flatmates. They moved to Fairfield in a Townhouse with their cat Iolaus (pronounced yol-us), who ended up being the downfall of the townhouse thanks to a crazy neighbour. In 2004 they moved to Kenmore and Zappa the crazy Labrador joined the family. Since then Caroline and Brent have undergone some amazing changes in their lives, had varied jobs and education, and met some wonderful people, all the while growing in their love for each other.”

Caroline wore a custom designed 50’s style gown made by Sew Formal (ph: (07) 3389 8355). It featured an eggplant purple and blue petticoat and matching fascinator from The Hat Box. Her bridesmaids wore peachy pink gowns from Tiger Rag, The multicoloured bouquets were styled by Brisbane Bouquets.
Caroline and Brent were married at the Bundaleer Rainforest Park. Caroline walked down the aisle to “This Old Love” by Lior, performed by her sister Maree.
The beautiful green surrounds were no accident, Caroline says. “It absolutely poured the day before but the sun was shining on the day making all of the surrounding rainforest setting very lush and green.”
Caroline held their reception in a marquee at Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens.
Caroline and Brent had a special first dance, she says, ” We had dancing lessons for 8 weeks to learn the triple swing as our bridal waltz. The band was one of the most important features of the wedding (my favourite band) so we wanted to make sure it was something a bit unique.” The couple hired Mojo Webb to keep their guests on the dance floor all night long.
