The ceremony took place at the picturesque fountain area within the venue, transformed into a floral wonderland by Emunah Events with hot pink bougainvillea cascading gracefully down the fountain and delicately meeting the surface of the water. The wedding party glowed surrounded by blooms in vibrant shades of pink and red. Ceremony expert celebrant Cara from Brisbane City Celebrants infused the ceremony with beautiful energy, elegance, and lots of laughter creating an authentic enjoyable experience.

Following the heartwarming exchange of vows, the wedding party headed off in golf buggies for location photos with the super sweet and super talented photographer Amanda from We Are Twine.  There was more laughter and way more fun as they sipped and sprayed champagne. Nature provided the perfect backdrop with the most beautiful grand flower wall, with cascading bougainvillea blooms.

The bride and her bridesmaids graced the venue in modern, sophisticated gowns adorned with intricate beading, meticulously curated from the atelier of local designer, the talented When Freddie Met Lilly, who also dressed the groom and his groomsmen, impeccably attired in tailored cream suits. Adorning the looks of the bride and bridesmaids were breathtaking headpieces crafted by the skilled hands of The Little Pack of Five. The talented hair and makeup artist, Bella Brides, created a soft, romantic look with bouncy waves and glowed in the beautiful makeup, encapsulating the essence of this elegant setting.

The wedding party returned to the venue as twilight descended, to experience how Emunah Events had masterminded a reception space at The Mango Tree Terrace. A setting that exuded timeless romance and pure elegance. An exquisite long table with flickering candles nestled beneath the embracing branches of a beautiful mango tree, adorned with softly glowing fairy lights. A pastel floral runner, gold cutlery, and gold-trimmed dinnerware adorned the table, adding to the elegance of the setting.

The pièce de resistance was a captivating three-tier wedding cake, meticulously crafted by The Sweet Society Co, and decorated with handcrafted bougainvillea petals. A piece of art!
