Neilsen and Tisha
The wedding was self-catered. Both our families are big! My mother is a chef and fussy and wouldn’t let us consider hiring someone else to do the catering. Nielsen’s mother is the cook of his family, and refused to be anywhere else but in the kitchen. With the help of some family members coerced into the kitchen including myself, we put on a feast that I’m still proud of to this day. We did cheat a little and used Golden Roast Catering to supply our spit-roast meat. It was delivered on time, hot, juicy and incredibly tasty. The wedding cake came from Madisons in Broadbeach. We chose a 2-tier cake, the bottom layer was chocolate mud cake with layers of chocolate cream running through and the top layer was a hummingbird cake made with pineapple and banana and had tiny vanilla cream layers through that. It was decorated in white with a quilted pattern and black studs. The cake maker (Nick) suggested a small bouquet of flowers to match the bridesmaids and they were amazing. The cake was a hit and there was plenty to go around!
My Aunt set the tables (from Bobs Hire including crockery, glassware, cutlery, tablecloths, everything!), decorated chairs, made up kids activity packs and carved meat! She was my dressmaker/wedding planner/project manager/port of call and we couldn’t thank her enough! My day was even more special because of her.
I felt so calm and serene that day and so thankful that this day was so personal and quite frankly, everything I had hoped it to be. I have these beautiful reminders in the form of my wedding albums from our photographer Amanda Quick. She was recommended through a mutual friend and she fit in so well with our theme. Our wedding photos are simple but beautiful and we thank her for capturing not only these pictures, but the feelings and atmosphere of the day as well. It really was a simple but beautiful affair.

Ms Gingham says: At the risk of sounding cliche… the simple things in life are often the best! It looks like this was the perfect day for Tisha and Nielsen and that’s the point! That your wedding day reflects who you both are.
Tisha says: “The day itself was magical. It was about our love, not only for ourselves but for our family and friends.”
