LOVE was all around for Hotel Urban Brisbane’s very first Bridal Showcase! Bride & grooms-to-be, future bridesmaids, others, mothers-in-law-to-be and so many more came along to the epic display put on by both the hotel and all of their trusted suppliers including cake-makers, musicians, florists, photographers – and even burlesque dancing teachers! Because the night wasn’t just about the Big Day – it was about the engagement party AND the hens parties.
Guests were greeted in the gorgeous lobby area with giant letters spelling out LOVE and then sent along their journey through Urban with a bag full of Urban goodies including magazines, details on the evening and our suppliers, and of course – Cheetah the Urban Monkey!
Starting off in the decadent Green Room, guests were spoilt with an assortment of high tea, several cocktail tastings, and a burlesque dancing teacher ready to whip everyone into dance with feathers, corsets and gloves.
Next stop? Up to level 10 to the famous Panorama Room with 180 degree views of Brisbane, and just in time to see the sun setting over Mount Coo-tha. Lined with gorgeous black chandeliers – the room came alive with the sounds of Andrew Taylor (The Voice) and his band while guests enjoyed dining on mini-main meals, canapés and wine tastings to get a real idea of what Hotel Urban can truly offer. The room sparkled with the sequined table cloths from our trusted decorators, along with stunning centrepieces and table settings to inspire brides-to-be.
With a handful of candy from the Urban candy buffet, guests made their way over to the grand Parklands Room – Hotel Urban’s largest room on offer. Guests admired the views of the city, and the lush Roma St Parklands (thus the name) while chatting to the lovely ladies from the Roma Street Parklands about the option of ceremonies in the park! Couples took pictures at the alter, set up by our lovely ceremony styling vendors, and then jumped in the photo booth for another picture! Our friendly celebrant & photographers spoke to couples, while a few girls had some mini-make-up trials from our beautiful hair and make-up suppliers.
To finish off the evening, guests had a glass of their favourite wine while overlooking the city from our outdoor terrace in the funky Loft – Urban’s very own rooftop bar! Guests had a boogie to the tunes supplied by our resident DJ and were treated to some fireworks that just so happened to be spring out of the sky at the conclusion of the night! Timing!
