A Modern Brisbane Wedding


I just adore this sweet and simple wedding all the way from Australia. Any wedding where the invitation is covered in rainbow confetti sounds like my celebration…

David and I are graphic designers from Brisbane. Brisbane is a small city with a lot of emerging talent and we wanted to show case some of that. We were married at Franklin Villa, Highgate Hill in Brisbane Australia. Franklin Villa was perfect for our wedding. We wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere for our guests and the comfort of an old home with character and charm really helped create the right mood. Guests played billiards or relaxed on the big leather lounge chairs. They sat on the verandahs and soaked in the city views. It was an afternoon of good conversation, old friends and space to simply just relax.








The day was just lovely and I think once again it can be proved that you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a truly elegant wedding day that you and your guests will remember forever.
