At Marry Me Movies, one of our favourite moments of this wedding is when a family member saw Lauren for the first time, dressed in her gown. We captured her reaction – from excited disbelief to joyful, shy tears. Photographs can’t do these moments justice. Only wedding videography can capture an unfurling scene, with all its beauty and spontaneity. And best of all, it can be enjoyed and re-lived forever.

Ms Chinoiserie Says: The love between Lauren and Brendan is so special – you captured it just perfectly!

About Marry Me Movies: As wedding cinematographers we don’t just ‘video your wedding’, we capture priceless moments and memories. We use cinematic quality imagery combined with a documentary style of storytelling to create a spellbinding wedding film. A ‘forever film’ that will ignite memories and infuse magic into any moment of any day, for the rest of your days – allowing you to fall in love again and again.

Hanging floral installations
We love seeing couples’ dreams come to life especially with magical floral installations at The Abbotsford Convent. They work perfectly hung from the exposed beams and create a sense of height.

Whether they are designed as round floral chandeliers with bursts of colour or a simple strung garland of greenery – installations are always stunning and create a grand impact when your guests are entering the room.

What’s On Trend This Season With Bursaria Fine Foods

Another trend making an impact for our Bursaria Fine Foods weddings are exquisite florals infused with a deep autumnal palette of crimson, scarlet and vermillion mixed with pops of contrasting greens. They always look stunning against a variety of backdrops especially bridal gowns. We love seeing these vibrant colours featured across accessories and styling including table settings and perfectly placed on naked wedding cakes. The contrast of colour is always exquisite.

Cheese wheel cakes
Cheese wheel cakes definitely make an impression at your wedding day. With a combination of local and imported cheeses topped with florals these are a perfect way to end a celebration!

Grazing feasts are a colourful affair!
A fusion of fresh seasonal produce with bursts of colour make for a wonderful celebration. There’s definitely a trend for a more relaxed style of wedding where guests indulge in a grazing style feast served down the centre of the table, matched with seasonal side dishes. We think this style of dining is the perfect way for couples to celebrate their special day in a relaxed setting.

Roving desserts
After the formalities are done its time for the party to start! As the dancing begins and the celebration continues guests can enjoy sweet desserts as they mingle with family and friends

Behind The Door With....Cuisine On Cue

This week on ‘Behind The Door With’ I’m up in beautiful Brisbane to visit a very yummy business, Cuisine on Cue. Operating since 1995, Cuisine on Cue pride themselves on creating the freshest local and seasonal cuisine for any event, but especially weddings. Cuisine on Cue also offers full event planning including organising event equipment, staffing, event theming and venue hire.

I meet General Manager Anna who tells me that for them, it’s all about the food. Operating from a commercial kitchen in Brisbane’s CBD, Cuisine on Cue work all over Brisbane and South East Queensland and can set up a kitchen wherever they need to. They have great relationships with a number of venues which means brides and grooms can expect a flawless food service and their dream menu produced by talented chefs on the night.

Cuisine on Cue are unique in that they provide couples with a wedding planner who is able to organise everything from choosing a venue, flower arrangements, entertainment and all the other fine details to make every wedding day special day truly memorable. “Whether you’re dreaming of an intimate low-key dinner with friends or a glamorous cocktail and canapé soiree, we know of a space to suit every style and budget” says Anna.

Cuisine on Cue love staying up to date with the latest food trends and can offer couples many different dining options from antipasto to interactive food stations. “Antipasto and cheese tables are a great alternative to canapes and look amazing when set out in a rustic style” says Anna. “Think wooden boards, fresh herbs and lots of colour for an option that will be both enjoyed and look amazing in your photos!” I also love the idea of Cuisine on Cue’s paella station or Texas BBQ turning smokey beef brisket into sliders!

Cuisine on Cue are also lucky enough to operate their own wedding venue, Walkabout Creek. Nestled within the tranquil rain forest of D’Aguilar National Park, located 12 kilometres from Brisbane’s CBD, it’s the perfect venue for weddings with multiple ceremony and reception spaces both indoor and outdoor.

Anna tells me that they are very excited to be giving Walkabout Creek a face lift very soon and that there will be lots of new exciting changes at the popular venue. Although I’m sure the beautiful rain forest scenery will stay, getting married near beautiful trees with delicious food are wonderful ingredients for an amazing wedding!
