The lighting, florals, ambient music, flickering candles, and elegance in every detail swept you away in the romantic atmosphere. The simplicity and intimacy of the parkland ceremony brought a natural elegance that is difficult to achieve. But achieve it they did.

Read on to be swept away by this romantic parkland ceremony and reception.

The Wedding


Every moment during your wedding day is special. Each moment holds a different feeling with it and is recalled at various times later in life. However, there is always one moment during your wedding day which will forever stand out. Malcolm’s most memorable moment was seeing Amanda walk down the aisle. Grooms often feel a rush of emotions when they first lay eyes on their bride. Feelings of pure happiness, joy, anticipation, a little anxiety, but most of all- complete love.  Amanda’s memorable moment came when they exchanged vows. She says that “it got beautifully emotional.” Recalling all the reason why you love someone and all the reasons you will continue to love them is sure to bring tears of love to anyone.

The ceremony took place at the parklands right outside Northshore Harbour Cafe, with the Brisbane River just in the distance. The trees offered a stunning backdrop for the couple and shade for the guests. The reception proceeded the ceremony at Northshore Harbour Cafe. Guests enjoyed a three-course meal inside with open windows that looked out at the river.





























“Shoutouts go to the Northshore Harbour Functions team who were unfailingly accommodating and professional. Jeff from St Lucia House of Flowers created stunning arrangements.  And of course, all our family who stepped up to the myriad of tasks that a wedding demands.”

Northshore Harbour is the perfect backdrop for every occasion. Situated between parklands and a private riverfront beach, it offers every bride her dream wedding theme without having to travel to make it a reality. It is a photographer’s dream and creates incredible contrasts to the white dress of the bride and attire of the wedding party. Amanda says, “the parkland and river provided the perfect backdrop to our wedding photos.”
