Eloise and Jevon’s Brisbane Riverside Wedding
We almost can’t believe it has already been 1 year since we captured Eloise and Jevon’s Stamford Plaza Brisbane Wedding in February 2020!! Therefore, we thought we would revisit their beautiful wedding memories one year on and wish them a Happy Anniversary!
I’m sure we are all aware just how crazy 2020 was! How lucky and relieving for Eloise and Jevon that timing was on their side. Their wedding was one of the last weddings we were able to photograph before restrictions came in around Australia!
We started the day meeting Jev and his groomsmen at Spice Apartments, South Brisbane to capture a few moments of his preparations before the ceremony. Meanwhile, Eloise was at Stamford Plaza with her bridemaids putting the finish touches on their hair, makeup and outfits. First, we spent some time photographing all those special moments as well as those stunning details chosen by the bride. Then onto the bridal portraits of the beautiful Eloise of course! Afterwards we made sure to capture Eloise’s Dad seeing her in her wedding gown for some fun “First look photos”.
Afterwards, it was downstairs at the Stamford Plaza for their intimate indoor ceremony officiated by Pastor Graham Sercombe. Overlooking the hotel gardens and the scenic Brisbane River, it was complete with a white carpet aisle and a wedding arbour adorned with white drapery and especially beautiful floral bouquets of cream and purple roses and chrysanthemums. It was without a doubt, a gorgeous ceremony. There were tears, laughter and a whole lot of love!
Following the formalities, it was time for some location bridal party photographs in the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens. And then couple photos at the Kangaroo Point Cliffs overlooking the city and a spectacular sunset!
Last but not least, we headed to the beautiful “River Room” at the Stamford Plaza where Eloise and Jev were greeted by their guests for an evening of dinner and celebrations.
Such a perfect day and we were thrilled to be apart of it. Happy Anniversary Eloise and Jev! – from all of us at Sunlit Studios.
