Saying ‘I do’ is really what the big day is all about. Here are some unique wedding ceremony ideas that will make your nuptials a moment you’ll never forget.

Surprise wedding!

If you like to keep your friends on their toes, organise a surprise wedding – just like Brisbane couple, Penny and Martin did at their surprise gathering. Gather everyone together for your ‘engagement party’ and then spring a costume change and a ceremony! This also works well for the low-key bride who doesn’t want the fuss and expense of a separate engagement party and wedding.

Go, Granny!

Ask your grandmothers to be your flower girls. It will be such a precious moment seeing them walk the aisle with their baskets of petals and they can be good shepherds for the mini flower girls.

Cosy up with your pooch for a ‘family’ shot or have your pup as the ring bearer. “Dogs can really bring a special element to weddings and they look super adorable with a ribbon, collar, garland or special tote piece that matches your wedding styling.,” says Yasmine from white + white weddings and events. “Flower girl/boy dogs, ring bearer dogs, sign bearer dogs or cute canine security dogs…we love dogs! They add a touch of fun (and chaos).”

Arrive in style

Put some thought into your grand arrival. We love a classic limo or vintage wheels but a colourful Kombi or retro bicycle can also work a treat. Or go for spectacle value with a helicopter touchdown or arrival by horse or paddleboard (as Tony and his groomsmen did).

An all-day affair

“Make your day an all day celebration, especially if you include a sunrise wedding followed by breakfast or mid-morning brunch,” says Yasmine of white + white weddings and events. “Lunchtime feasts are becoming increasingly popular, with long table feasting, beautiful wines and wedding merriment rolling into the late afternoon.”
