If you’ve ever been within earshot of anybody trying on a wedding dress, you’ve probably heard someone being told they look like a princess. It’s become something of a cliche when it comes to celebrations of love, but do any weddings live up to this royal reputation? Of course they do! Cuisine on Cue has curated the menu at more than their fair share, but this real wedding is one of our favourites!
Josie and Luke recently wrote their own chapter in the anthology of fairytales that the Old Museum in Brisbane’s Bowen Hills has been delivering for over 130 years. From stunning floral arrangements to an immaculate sit-down dinner. Read below more of the love-story worthy of any royal court.
When deciding on a ceremony space, the Old Museum offers couples some gorgeous outdoor, garden spaces. Though Josie and Luke opted to say their vows on the airy Balcony. Decorating the timeless, subtle red-brick and pristine stone flooring with gorgeous, eclectic floral arrangements with the help of Aurora floral studio.
This focussed floral motif complimented the impossible not to love simplicity of Josie’s gown from Lola Varma. Famous for their minimalist designs.
The ceremony featured fewer than 50 guests, who were able to embrace the full effect of the moment as the couple said I do, in a wonderfully intimate, personal setting. Married by Lara Wilkinson, a celebrant who brings a unique warmth and attentiveness to ceremonies. An atmosphere this exceptional ceremony demanded.
The floral arrangements added beautiful vibrance that brought the ceremony photgraphy to life, while Daniel Ford provided perfect, subtle musical accompaniment to the proceeding. Check out our Instagram to see the full team of suppliers and partners.

However, in typical Old Museum style, this histoirc venue, styled by an all-star Brisbane team. Including For Love and Living wedding planners, Avideas and Hampton event hires and beautiful floral additions from Aurora.
DJ Aaron Maybus provided music for the bulk of the evening, completing the vibe perfectly. The final element that raised this classic style reception to rival the ceremony it followed? The Food.
