Weddings Versace Gold Coast
In an elegant affair, Cameron and Estera were married at Royal Pines Golf Course with a wedding reception at the Palazzo Versace Hotel.
Weddings Versace Gold Coast:
Estera chose makeup artist extraordinaire Maria Rivera to prepare her and the bridesmaids with hair being styled by Samantha Livingstone. I really loved the headpiece that Estera wore – it created a sense of atmosphere and stylisation that worked in really well with the setting, particularly with the archway at Royal Pines and the columns at Palazzo Versace.
Cameron was clearly the more nervous of the two – akin to a cat on a hot tin roof, his nerves settled visibly once the limousine was sighted!
The service itself was conducted by the experienced Christine Walker. I have seen Christine in action a number of times and have been impressed by her relaxed personality and the sincerity of the ceremonies she puts together.
With the I Do’s sorted, we jumped into the Golf Carts supplied by Royal Pines and headed out to take advantage of some nearby locations. Then it was off to the Versace – at which point the heavens opened and things got soaking wet! And by “things” I mean ALL things!
It was dark, raining and we were out of time and heading back to the reception when Estera must have seen a look on my face.
With her ever so sexy Romanian accent she asked “What are you thinking Steve?” … so I explained an idea which made our host from Versace go very very pale. Clearly the workplace health and safety implications of letting a bride walk in the rain across the wet, dark lip of a pool in her wedding dress were not going to be allowed.
To be clear – it was expressly forbidden by the venue, but while our groom Cameron (far less enthusiastic about standing about in the rain) kept our host busy .. well .. when the cats away and all of that …
The reception was a lovely blend of tears (mostly Cameron’s) laughter and dancing of all levels of skill. The cake was a work of art and Kudos also to the florist who provided the bridal party with their flowers, amazing work!
