Real Wedding: Kelly and Clint

  | 

This elegant modern wedding combines the best of both worlds, bringing the beauty of Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens into a chic restaurant setting just across the road. A gorgeous green and white installation of foliage and blooms set the scene for Kelly Cooper and Clint Jeavons’ “I do” with guests revelling in the chance to enjoy chef David Pugh’s much-loved and awarded cuisine. And our favourite detail? Shoe addict Kelly’s ‘splurge’ of show-stopping studded Valentino heels of course!

How did you meet? 

I meet Clint though his sister, who I had known for years. At one of her birthday dinners I was sitting next to her and I asked who was sitting down the end of the table, and she pointed out it was her brother. Clint and I have been together ever since.

Tell us about your wedding planning experience…

Planning our wedding was stress free, we both enjoyed it! We  knew what we wanted, we made very quick decisions and only spoke about the wedding when we needed to.

The quickest decision was choosing to have our reception at Restaurant Two. We didn’t look anywhere else after visiting it! My family had been dining there for over 14 years and I had taken Clint there for lovely dinners during our courtship. Clint fell in love with the food just like I had years ago. I also liked the styling of the restaurant… it was perfect for a modern wedding.

Where did you splurge and where did you save on your wedding? 

I splurged on my shoes. I love shoes! I bought a pair of Valentino studded heels.

Special thanks to…

Brad Webb from Darb Bridal Couture. After 10 years of working for Brad, making Darb gowns for so many lovely brides, I finally got mine. He made my gown especially for me.

What did you do for your honeymoon? 

We spent our honeymoon in the beautiful Maldives. We had an amazing time there, we were lucky enough to swim with Whale Sharks. We want to go back!
