Q Station Wedding: Aislinn & Luke – Part 2

Our happy couple Aislinn and Luke had just been married! We loved the smiles on their faces as we headed outside for some portraits. It was too wet and windy to venture far, but the Q Station hospital ceremony grounds provided some attractive and handy cover. The Q Station was once Sydney harbour’s quarantine station, but these days the historical buildings have been transformed into a lovely hotel and variety of event spaces in a quiet, peaceful setting.

The views from Q Station are lovely, looking back up Sydney Harbour.

Aislinn and Luke held their reception in the Governor Bourke Room, which was once an old school hall. It was beautifully decorated with fairy lights, candles and sheer fabric.

Aislinn created miniature paintings and collages as table numbers, representing places that she and Luke had travelled to together.

They also had an incredibly cute Polaroid photo corner set up for the guests!

Aislinn and Luke chose to have a croquembouche for their wedding cake! Incredibly, it gave the entire hall a sweet smell of sugar. I have never experienced a sugar smell quite that potent. I was salivating the entire reception!

Then in came the bridal party, followed by our new happy couple!

The Q Station staff was hard at work preparing the food in the hidden back room, while the first speeches and toasts were underway.

The reception hall glowed in the twilight light, amidst some dramatic storm clouds. Its location on the hilltop felt so secluded. Beautiful! Click this panorama to view it larger.

Next, the band arrived! Aislinn and Luke hired James Willing and he and his drummer were amazing! Jeff and I were so impressed!
