Real Wedding Stories at Brisbane Powerhouse: Cat and Jake

151_Cat+Jake_Luke Going_2018

Cat and Jake were married on a perfect spring afternoon with their closest friends and family overlooking the Brisbane River at the contemporary Brisbane Powerhouse.

Styled by White + White Weddings, Cat and Jake had a picturesque wedding with lush greenery and neutral tones that melded in with the historical building.

Married under a dreamy arbour with stunning traditional roses and greenery by celebrant Carly Slade, the couple shared their intimate vows with friends and family. As their loved ones joined in their celebrations the explosions of white confetti filled the air welcoming the couple to their new adventure.

Friends and family moved to the nearby restaurant Proud Mary as the team of White + White, Brisbane Powerhouse and Zen Catering went about setting the stunning reception. Complete with its own gin bar, the reception carried the theme of the ceremony with warm moody lighting, crisp neutral tones and lush greenery by Bouquet Boutique. As guests entered the room they headed to the outdoor deck for cocktail hour. With Kris Iwanuik and Simone Pope playing some smooth Flamenco tunes, guests finished their custom-made gin cocktails and made their way to the dreamy dinner tables to welcome the newlyweds.

With full bellies, courtesy of Zen Catering, it was time for the party to start. Cat and Jake danced their first dance as husband and wife to “Into My Arms” by Nick Cave that didn’t leave a dry eye in the house. Inviting their loved ones to join, the party then danced the night away.

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Carter!
