Casino Royale

treasuryshowcase001-1There are few buildings in Brisbane as majestic as the Treasury Casino and Hotel and even fewer that have faithfully retained the colonial elegance and grace of the long bygone Edwardian era. Fortunately, for wedding couples seeking something a little more unique for their nuptial celebrations, the former Queensland Treasury buildings have lost none of their charm and sophistication and are the perfect place to host a spectacular formal wedding for parties of just about any size. With a location right in the heart of the CBD, close to the river and providing a stunning backdrop for photos the Treasury really is the perfect choice for city weddings. The range of beautiful, high-ceiling rooms replete with history are adaptable to host functions in a number of ways, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff along a true 5-star feel means this venue should be high on your list to check out.
Our friends at Masterpieces Photography + Video were invited along to the recent wedding showcase at the hotel and captured the stunning setups created by the events team as well as the awe-inspiring courtyard atrium which would be perfect to host a large cocktail wedding.

Vintage Vigour

Do you love the old world charm of vintage styling?

Does the thought of a trip to the antique store fill you with pleasure or abject dread? Vintage is so popular at the moment and many brides are taking the opportunity to make their special day even more unique by adding little touches here and there. The handcrafted nature of these artisan pieces, combined with classic, vintage-inspired design means we love this trend too.

From old style jars full of wild flowers through to vintage cutlery, and mismatched chairs, vintage can mean a multitude of styles that will suit the relaxed, boho bride. But add a touch of decadence, with french lace and champagne perhaps, and the mix becomes suitably elegant and chic for almost any occasion.

Whatever your taste you can find some lovely vintage inspiration here…
