What led you to decide on your Wedding venue?
We wanted an intimate space for our ceremony as we were only having 40 people attend our wedding.
Our celebrant told us about Wolloongabba Substation and when we realised it was only a few hundred metres from our reception venue we had to have a look. When we arrived it was simply perfect, it had beautiful exposed beams, exposed bricks and white washed walls. The venue is usually used as a community hall/art gallery and we knew that with some styling the space would look beautiful for our big day.
We decided to have wedding reception in the wine cellar at 1889 Enoteca which located within the Woolloongabba precinct. It was really important for us to have good food and wine and we really wanted a venue where we could sit with all of our guests. Enotecca was the perfect venue for our wedding and the most stunning space.
Do you have any stories to share from the day?
Ash and I decided to do pre-ceremony photographs and it was such a nice way to see and connect with each other before the ceremony. We took a moment to ourselves to just enjoy seeing each other for the first time and de-stress before the formal part of the day.
Tell us about the photographer?
We were so lucky to have Vera and Pavel from White Parrot Photography capture our day. They are both such lovely people and we felt so privileged to share our day with them. They worked with such precision and organisation all whilst carrying out their creative work in a seamless way. They were there to share and capture every moment of our day and when we got our photos and short video back we were so happy with their work. They went above and beyond with every detail and are meticulous with the work they produce.
What advice would you offer to other couples planning a Wedding?
Keep things simple and enjoy the planning experience together.
“Vera and Pavel are such incredible people and photographers !
We had the absolute pleasure of having them as our wedding photographers and we just love all of the images they captured of our special day. We we’re also taken back by the amazing video they created for us and it will be something that we can cherish throughout the years to come.
We would both highly recommend White Parrot Wedding Photography & Film to anyone looking for an amazing team who work seamlessly on your big day.
Thank you for all of your hard work, we are so grateful.”
