Late Sunday afternoon may have been sweltering but we found relief in the heart of Brisbane’s entertainment district at one of the Valley’s most iconic locations, Cloudland, for the Unveiled Wedding Showcase.
Advertised as a luxury wedding showcase, the event was also doubling as the catwalk launch for the new bridal collection from Begitta, one of the city’s most unique couture designers whose work we have featured before. The Sirromet bubbles on arrival went down nicely with the accompanied gift bag.
As venues go, Cloudland certainly stands in a league of its own in Brisbane, with dramatic eclectic architecture that juxtaposes open space and private little nooks to perfection. The venue had dressed a selection of tables with suitably matching décor and beautiful floral arrangements. The ante-room towards the back of the venue was dressed for a wedding ceremony in a much more simplistic and elegant style and would be perfect for smaller weddings of 50-75 guests.
The main event kicked off promptly at 7pm, with Begitta’s new collection gracing the runway. The Forgotten Garden launch boasted a range of styles and fabrics with an overall floral theme. This was a comprehensive collection that featured the full gamut from elegant to whimsical gowns that would suit a variety of modern brides and bridesmaids. We loved the sparkle applied to the hair and face. These touches caught the light as the models walked the catwalk. Our most favourite gown was Grecian inspired with a short train from the shoulders that came to life on the strut down the runway. While the dusty pinks created a soft romance to the collection, the plunging bold pink sequin gown and sexy red ruffled gown provided an exclamation point to the event.
