Simone and Joe had been to many big weddings. Although they truly loved watching friends and family tie the knot lavishly, they knew it was not what they wanted for their special day. And so the decision was made to fly to one of their favourite cities and say their “I do’s” privately, simply and with no worries whatsoever. Simone contacted me through our facebook page and we commenced planning. Simone and Joe chose our simple elopement wedding package which included planning, coordination, celebrant, witnesses, photography, florals and styling. As they were travelling from NSW I also helped Simone select an amazing Hair & Make Up artist to help her ready for the day. Their special venue was the Brisbane City Botanical Gardens at the end of June. A perfect place and perfect time for a perfect elopement.

They had a simple and elegant ceremony followed by some great portrait shots within the Botanical Gardens!! I think camera shy Joe did a fabulous job of posing!! Once their Sweet Petite Weddings and Elopements Package was complete, Simone and Joe headed out for a romantic private dinner. They flew to Melbourne the next day for a week long honeymoon and surprised family and friends with their “We did it!!” announcement upon their return home!
