We’ve been lucky to be a part of some spectacular weddings here on the Gold Coast, and we’re loving the direction the wedding industry has taken over the last couple of years. We’ve met so many inspiring couples along the way, and we’re constantly blown away by the creativity and imagination of our beautiful clients. We love the way they think outside the box and constantly challenge the notion of what a traditional wedding ‘should be’.
One wedding idea we cannot get enough of is the concept of a morning or lunchtime wedding. Whether it’s a dreamy long lunch, or a summertime brunch, daytime wedding receptions have become really popular over the last couple of years.
The dance floor might be less crowded, but daytime receptions are fresh, fun and vibrant. Guests can sip on champagne in the sunshine, chill out to cruisey acoustic tunes, play lawn games, and of course feast on a delicious brunch or lunchtime spread. Sounds like bliss to us!
We were lucky enough to be a part of our good friends Simone & Paul’s wedding recently, and it was the most incredible day. It started early, finished relatively early for most, and was immensely enjoyed by guests of all ages. We caught up with the beautiful bride to see what inspired this style of wedding for them.
When you first started planning your wedding, what were your main priorities? We wanted to keep our wedding fairly simple and family friendly. We always pictured it to be outdoors, a garden wedding. We knew we didn’t need much to make it an amazing day, beautiful surrounds, great company, good food, drinks and music.
