The Wedding of Jane and Tin
Jane and Tin held their wedding ceremony and reception in the Marquee at Victoria Park. Recently the pair sat down to discuss their big day with the Victoria Park team.
What was your favourite part of your wedding?
A favourite moment of our ceremony was seeing Tin waiting for me underneath our amazing fresh flower arbour. I could not have asked for anything better! Although Tin and I were standing in front of all our family and friends as we shared our wedding vows, it truly felt as if we were the only two there. Tin and I decided to surprise each other by sharing our wedding vows with each other for the very first time during the ceremony, and to our surprise we both shared similar words and promises to each other. Another beautiful moment was when our guests lit their sparklers as we cut our cake with fireworks shooting in the background to our favourite soundtrack.
Tell us about your decorations and wedding styling.
Our ceremony was held on the Victoria Park Marquee deck, overlooking Brisbane city beneath a stunning floral arbour. I must give credit to Styled Events and Danielle my Wedding Planner, who did an indescribable job creating our white wedding. We had over 100 metres of pure white carpet leading to the alter with multiple clear pillars with vases of fresh flowers on either side. To complement our aisle we added a 4 metre wisteria tree to create a whimsical, romantic look.
Our reception took place in Victoria Park’s Marquee room where we hosted a 3 course sit down dinner. My inspiration was to bring a garden into the marquee, so we decided to create tree-like centrepieces on gold stands which stood over 1 metre high. Each centrepiece included white roses, green foliage and disbuds. We created a romantic ambiance by having candles scattered around each table. To flow with our white and gold theme we had gold Tiffany chairs, a custom gold bridal table, gold cutlery, white and gold menus with each of our guest names, gold centrepiece stands, a white dance floor with our initials monogramed in gold and custom made white napkins with our gold monogram. We also had a ‘wishing tree’ where guests could write us a message to hang on ribbons alongside 150 hanging fresh Singapore orchards.
What’s the best piece of advice you can give other couples starting their wedding planning journey?
When it comes to planning the ceremony, my advice would be to do your research and to have a team that you can trust that is genuinely there to help you. Finding the right Celebrant is very important as they are the one marrying you after all! When Tin and I met Jamie Eastgate from Brisbane City Celebrants we knew he was the right man to help us tie the knot. Jamie has the most amazing personality. He is warm, caring and one of the most genuine people we know. He made the whole process very easy for us by explaining the ceremony process and options available, customising our ceremony to suit us and organising all the paperwork. Jamie even submitted the application for our official marriage certificate for us and within a few weeks of our day, our official marriage certificate arrived in the post.
