This dark romance wedding took place at a crematorium where the bride works

Kate and Jordon were married in an intimate ceremony at Mt Thompson Crematorium, where the bride works, in Holland Park, Brisbane. They wanted the wedding to reflect their lives and everything they’ve built together and you can enjoy what it resulted in below.

They included nods to the bride’s Scottish heritage such as the tartan sash attached to her Sherri Hill dress and by having a handfasting and whiskey ceremony. The wedding dress perfectly showed off her tattoos and a red lip and dark nails perfectly finished off the look. The groom was wearing a black suit with a red tie to match the bride’s look. The wedding cake was made with Belgian chocolate as a nod to Jordon being born in Belgium.

Jordon’s parents had passed away and the celebrant, who was Jordon’s mother’s best friend, gave a beautiful tribute. The songs were the favorite ones of their parents, especially of the groom, who had passed away. The couple’s nieces, nephews and best friend’s children acted as junior groomsmen and junior bridesmaids. The bride’s son Ty walked her down the aisle in his traditional Clan Ranald kilt.

After their ceremony they hosted an intimate drinks and canape reception with their loved ones, ending the day with a private dinner just for the two of them. It was the perfect way for them to end the wedding, entirely on their own terms. They managed to keep costs down this way, and also by getting married at the bride’s place of work.
