Whimsical Micro-Wedding

Planning a destination wedding all the way from LA, James and Elizabeth chose to say “I do” with an intimate wedding elopement, surrounded by their closest.  Their whimsical micro-wedding took place at one of Australia’s most awarded luxury venue, Spicers Peak Lodge.  Set 1100 metres above sea level on a stunningly beautiful grassy plateau, atop a soaring mountain of the imposing Great Dividing Range.

We can’t decide what we love more, that ceremony arch, the effortlessly elegant yet romantic style, or that utterly charming reception setting.

Stand out suppliers

Red Tie Entertainment.  Although I was skeptical having a band for such a small wedding, they were absolutely amazing.  Everything from the ceremony music to the last song of the night was perfect.  Our band brought such great energy to our celebration.

Gwen Floral Co. Going large on fresh flowers was my top request and Sarah nailed it! My sister loved the ground arch so much, she got an oil painting done for us as a wedding gift.

Spicers Peak Lodge.  We cannot say enough good things about Spicers Peak Lodge. Especially for anyone planning a destination wedding.  The lodge is gorgeous, the food was incredible and the staff could not have been more lovely, welcoming and helpful.

Scenic Rim Bride. Honestly, all the suppliers recommended were perfectly fitting.  We felt so lucky to have Bronwyn from Scenic Rim Bride on our side!  Despite the weather not cooperating, we felt so happy with all the decisions we made, with what we were able to control.
