Brisbane Outdoor Wedding For High School Sweethearts

Who knew that a bike ride would lead these high school sweethearts to an absolutely stunning Brisbane Outdoor Wedding Photo Location, at Victoria Park?

This Brisbane outdoor wedding began back in Year 8 at Grace Lutheran College where Emily and Nicholas Doyle first met. They were in the same core classes, and before long they became high school sweethearts.

Fast forward seven years to a bright and sunny day when Nick took Emily on a sunset bike ride along the Brisbane river. It was the first bike ride they had been on since Emily’s recent knee operation. They rode through Roma Street Parklands, Southbank and finally stopped at Kangaroo Point stairs to admire the view and have a picnic. Upon finishing their picnic, Emily was observing the view as Nick got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes of course! Shortly afterwards they rode their bikes to Mister Fitz ice cream to celebrate.

About the Day

The couples wed on 16 September 2017 in the Ballroom at Victoria Park Wedding Venue and loved everything about their special day. When asked about their wedding styling, Emily said that she and Nick choose the elegant gold, pink and white theme for their wedding together.

Having already purchased our own home we had a strict styling budget to stick with. We decided to do whatever we could ourselves including our invitations and styling. Looking back we wouldn’t do anything differently.” said Emily.

When asked to name their favourite wedding memory, other than the I do’s of course, Nick and Emily said they loved having a dance with all their guests and just the fact that all their closest friends and family were together in one place to support and celebrate their special day.”

She admires how genuine he is and how he can always makes her laugh. Nick adores Emily for her selflessness, how she always thinks of others needs before her own.

When asked to provide a tip to couples planning their big day, Emily said her advice is simple. Be sure that they have everything you really want, organised.  It is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

“We loved everything about our special day! Our venue made things really easy too with an event planner supporting us through the planning process. Victoria Park had commendable service and free parking on site for our guests.” Said Emily.
