Braeside Chapel Wedding – Elma & Jay

Elma & Jay were married last month in the gorgeous gardens of Braeside Chapel on the Gold Coast. It was a stunning winter’s day and the setting couldn’t have been more perfect! Among family & friends they said their ‘I dos’ under the beautiful old fig tree that graces the estate. It was an overcast day from the early hours, but just on cue as they said their vows, the sun came out as if blessing their union.

Here’s a little look at Elma & Jay’s wedding day 💜

Elma & Jay share a common love of cars, in fact they met for the first time in the Pacific Fair carpark where they talked cars. Elma’s favourite colour is purple. This stunning purple Mustang from the Caddy Daddy was the perfect car for their wedding day!


We made a quick stop at beautiful Emerald Lakes for some more photos on our way to the Hilton where their reception was being held.
