The first time we saw one of Jo's amazing cakes at one of our couples wedding, we were so incredibly impressed we had to know who this amazing cake artist was!

We have since had the pleasure of working alongside the very talented Jo at weddings and we love seeing what masterpiece she has created. She has perfected the on trend 'naked cake' and knows how to decorate her creations perfectly with fresh flowers and even macaroons.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cake My Day By Jo to all our couples.

Why our clients love them: Cake_My_Day_By_Jo.jpg

"Thank you so much Jo for making our beautiful wedding cake! You were so lovely to deal with and we loved the cake tasting you had many delicious flavours that were all presented beautifully!

Emily & Jono - Gardens Club Wedding

What they say about us:

"As a cake artisan I have had the pleasure to collaborate with Jamie and Cara on several weddings over the past year.

 

I always find them to be helpful, fun, vibrant and flexible with their couples requirements. They offer their clients the option of a male or female celebrant which is very helpful for today's busy brides and grooms. I love collaborating with Jamie and Cara they are so professional and can't wait to work alongside them again very soon.

Breanna is brimming with talent! She is a sweet passionate young singer/ songwriter/ guitarist with an excellent quality sound system.

With the most beautiful voice and powerful vocal range she is also extremely versatile in her range of music. She also has a wonderful ability to be completely aware of everything that is happening around her, knowing when to fade out etc at all the right moments during the ceremony.

We highly recommend using Breanna if you love the idea of live music at your wedding.

Why our clients love them: Breanna.jpg

"Thank you so much for everything you put in to our wedding performance.

It was so easy to communicate with you on how we wanted our wedding ceremony to run and you hit the nail on the head.

You were so professional and dedicated to making this day so special for us- it was once in a lifetime.

It was hard to spot a dry eye as you sang and played whilst I walked down the aisle. It was truly inspirational the amount of emotion you put in to the lyrics.

I am so glad I found you! Thank you again." Jessica and Ben

What they say about us:

"Brisbane City Celebrants are professional celebrants with a really personal touch. Everything ran so smoothly and was organised to the tee. You brought everything together beautifully.

There is also something very special and real about walking down the aisle to live music.

We highly recommend having Michael as your wedding singer!

"Michael, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing on our day. You were a huge hit!

I received positive feedback from so many people, all saying how talented you are and how your presence made the day.

Anyway, once again thanks heaps! You were so lovely and I didn't have to tell you anything - you just turned up and played and did a fantastic job. Couldn't be happier!" Kate

I cannot speak highly enough of Jamie's professionalism and positive attitude.  It was evident that his calming yet enthusiastic presence made the day that much more special for the bride and groom, as well as the guests. 

I look forward to working with Brisbane City Celebrants in the future!

 

Wedding DJ & MC

Decibels - DJ & MC

Why we love them:

 Brent is one of Brisbane’s most experienced and sought after DJ’s and MC. Our couples continue to rave about his professionalism and the fantastic atmosphere that he brings to their special day.

With a wealth of knowledge and a passion for making the atmosphere at your reception amazing, we highly recommend considering Brent to bring your reception celebrations to life.

TIP - We have attended many weddings (including our own) where the couple get their funny outgoing friend to be their MC but unfortunately on the day, the combination of nerves and pressure always gets the better of them.

Having a professionally trained Master of Ceremonies at you wedding is a decision you simply won’t regret and we highly recommend Brent from Decibels for the role!

What they probably don’t know is that they ‘set the tone’ for the rest of the day which from an entertainment point of view is very important. They lay the foundations of what is invariably a great fun reception to follow”

From dress-ups and grooming to treats and posing for photos our dog was included in the 'big day' in a very special way! Gill thought of everything; a matching lead, safe and secure transportation between venues (including a safe crate and a seat belt), a bow tie, food and water and a resting bed to keep his feet clean so they wouldn't dirty my dress. Gill not only looked after our little guy, she held fly away veils too! Being a genuine dog whisperer; she knows how to calm them and even how to make them smile :)

We now have fantastic photos of our whole family on our wedding day - fur kid and all! If your pet means the world to you and only the best will do... book Gillian for your big day!"  Suzannah and Mat (Image: Chi Chi Photography)
