Olivia & David Wedding

The Golden Ox, Margate, Brisbane

Elva provided us with such a beautiful ceremony.
We had a few requests and Elva accommodated every base we needed to hit, a tight schedule was also a factor.
Elva was quick to reassure us that she could make the ceremony as long or as short as we needed, whilst still retaining the heartfelt, intimate ceremony we were looking for.
Elva took care of everything leading up to the wedding, made the whole process easy and was a breeze to work with.
I would recommend Elva in a heartbeat.
Thank you again Elva.

Mikala & Sam Wedding

Wellington Point, Redlands

I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us during this difficult time.
With the current Brisbane lockdowns all our wedding plans changed very quickly.
Unfortunately, the day we had originally planned had to be cancelled but you made sure that we could still get married regardless.
You helped us find a place to hold our small ceremony and you made it an incredible day.
Our children and our parents were there and that’s more than we could ever ask for.
You were accommodating of our little family and the ceremony was small, intimate, and completely us.
We are so incredibly thankful of you and the day that you helped give us yesterday.
Your calm and welcoming demeanour helped us feel comfortable in such a public setting.
While it wasn’t the day we planned, we had the greatest and most special day and we truly have you to thank for that.
We would recommend you to everyone we know.
Lots of love.
Mikala and Sam McDonald
