Felicity and Simon were married at their family church in Toowong followed by an intimate dinner for 30 guests at Brisbane’s famous Enoteca restaurant where they enjoyed a lavish 5 course feast.
Breaking the traditional style of wedding cake plated for dessert, Fliss and Simon opted to serve cake post ceremony paired with champagne. Their wedding cake was designed and made by Gillian Bell who also stayed after the ceremony to assist with plating cake for guests.
With the pressure of covid border closures, Fliss decided to leave the planning to be pulled together within a short timeline to try and avoid the risk of postponement. When we first spoke less than 3 months before the wedding, Fliss had only secured her photographer, Tessa Shannon and their ceremony location. We worked together to plan the final details and with only a slight covid scare a few weeks prior, as well as a minor delay (the driver accidentally left with the bouquets in the boot of the car!) the wedding went off without a hitch.
Bridal party details
In the theme of keeping their wedding small and intimate, Fliss kept her bridal party limited to her twin sister and Simon to his best man. They were also accompanied by their two nieces as well as their daughters, both with the same name and also the reason they crossed paths.
After sitting next to each other with their daughters during story time at The Brisbane Library, they discovered that they both had little girls with the same name, the rest as they say is history.
