Real-life Wedding: Brooke + Brendan

Gold Coast Broadbeach Wedding Beach Umbrella Wave Romantic

Real Life Wedding of Brooke and Brendan on the Beach

I recently looked after Brooke and Brendan’s beautiful Black and White-themed wedding.  Even though there were a couple of showers on the day, it wasn’t enough to dampen the spirits of Brooke, Brendan and their guests on their wedding day. Brooke and Brendan describe their wedding as “a huge success, extremely memorable and with many compliments from our guests telling us they enjoyed the night as much as we did”. Enjoy their beautiful photos!

After the ceremony, guests arrived to the reception room decorated in a stylish, sophisticated and opulent black and white theme. Centre pieces were fishbowl vases with pale pink and ivory roses to tie in perfectly with the bouquets and the pale pink of the bridesmaid’s dresses.  Ceiling draping and a backdrop with uplighting gave the room the formal touch. The Photobooth provided some entertainment for the guests as did the props Brooke had provided for some fun photos. Brooke said “the room set up was absolutely perfect and just as I had imagined it to look”
