Anne-Marie and Brendan – The Celebration

by | Australia - Queensland, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


I love how fun filled the photos of Anne-Marie and Brenda’s wedding are. Nothing makes me happier than wedding photos with that “wish you were there” feel!



Anne-Marie wore a dress from Sugar & Spice while her bridesmaids wore gowns from Wayne Cooper. Bouquets of orange roses were put together by a family friend. The groom and his groomsmen wore suits from Roger David with striped ties from TimothyK.



Anne-Marie says “Our photos were taken at Shorncliffe pier.  This particularly meant a lot to us as it is nearby where we’ve bought our first house that we’ve been renovating for the last year.”

Anne-Marie and Brendan celebrated with their guests at Glengariff Historic Estate. They couple loved the history of the venue- after operating for over 100 years as a dairy farm, it evolved into a into a beautiful function area, complete with panoramic views and a vineyard.


With funky wooden cake toppers, the cake had Brendan and Anne-Marie’s names written in calligraphy style  and was made by a family friend. Anne Marie and Brendan made a lot of their own stationery- their engagement invitations, order of service booklets, wishing well cards and thank you notes. They had their wedding invitations made by Tickle Me Invitations.

Anne-Marie says of their first dance “We danced to “True Companion” by Marc Cohn – it was a very ‘interesting’ first dance as it was non-rehearsed and ended up in the groomsmen doing various break dancing moves”. The music to keep guests dancing on the front lawn was provided by friends.

    I definitely think the best wedding photos are taken at weddings where the bride and groom are having a good time (and their guests, too, of course). When the couple isn’t enjoying themselves, it comes through in the pics.
