Their stunning wedding was feminine and elegant, with a laid-back feel. The styling featured pretty pale dusty rose colours for the floral arrangements and the ladies, while the fellas went with the classic black suit and tie with crisp white shirts. Timeless.
Jasmine says it was most important to the couple to involve as many family and friends as possible, while keeping to their budget, but of course to have a really nice bridal gown. The solution – shop at a bridal outlet store, and have a split reception, where 75 close family members first congregated for a sit-down dinner, and a further 50 friends came along afterwards for a cocktail dessert reception with dancing. What a fabulous idea!
“We wrote a love letter to each other prior to the wedding and read it to each other at the ceremony, it was very special.”
"Saving ourselves for marriage made our wedding day extra special."
“We had the most amazing special day and enjoyed every moment of it. The best part of the day was knowing I was marrying the right person and so I had no worries walking down the aisle to meet Brendan.”
Jasmine and Brendan Woods were together almost a year when they were married on April 30, 2011. The handsome couple met at church, and managed to plan a gorgeous Sunshine Coast wedding for $10,000 in only three and a half months!
