James and Amy held both the ceremony and reception at one of my favourite Brisbane venues, The Refinery with a carefully selected group of Brisbane suppliers to bring the day to life.
After two postponements, they managed to time their final wedding date perfectly. It almost felt like destiny in what had been a very disappointing year as their wedding went off without a hitch. With limited restrictions, they were able to mingle with their guests and invite everyone to an open dancefloor.
Both being big Harry Potter fans, I wanted to incorporate a feeling of magic in their styling without diving into a “themed” wedding. We suspended fluffy clouds of babies breath sprinkled with fairy lights above guests in a hope of mimicking the night sky without being as obvious as suspending fake candles from the ceiling. These small elements throughout the styling created just a hint of what I hope everyone feels when they see the Great Hall in all its glory.
As well as being Harry Potter and Star Wars obsessed, James and Amy are huge fans of Caricaturist art and have a collection in their home. For some additional entertainment for their guests, they had an artist sketch their family and friends throughout the night giving them a wonderful keepsake to take home with them.
James & Amy were kind enough to leave these lovely words:
‘I’ve tried to write this a few times but I can’t put into words how grateful we are that we found Danielle and Til Death Events.
Danielle really saved my sanity when it came to planning (and postponing x 2) our wedding. I’m an anxious, control freak but Danielle made me feel so calm and I had complete confidence she’d plan the perfect day that represented us as a couple.
To say she nailed it would be the world’s biggest understatement. Our day was the happiest, best day of our lives and that‘s all thanks to Danielle. I will be raving about Til Death Events for years to come. 18389393/10 recommend.’
