We paid special attention to our spelling this time, knowing that this couple have got the smarts! Architect (Nick) and graduate of architecture (Zuzana) own their own practice in Brisbane and have been happily hanging out for the last 11 years.
“Nick and I spoke about getting married on and off for a while. I am originally from the Czech Republic and still have all of my extended family there, and when my grandmother decided to come out to Australia for what would be probably her last time, we decided that if we were ever going to get married, we should do it then”, says Suzana.
Having always wanted a simple celebration, Nick and Zuzana kept their guest list short and with the hired help of Little Grey Station and Spoon Fed Catering, created a day that was fuss-free and full of surprises. “The lead up to the wedding was surprisingly calm for us given that we organised all of it ourselves and did all the flowers and set up the day before”, says Zuzana, who wore a customised Leanima gown. “I think that the best part for both Nick and I was having everyone there and spending time with them. My mum also surprised me after dinner by singing a traditional Czech wedding song with my grandmother for us! Everyone loved it and some people cried.”
Held at Obi Obi Hall, located on Obi Obi Road in Obi Obi, Queensland, photographer Jess Jackson had a great time shooting these two legends who were married by one of our all time fave celebrants, the super rad Paul Voge. Jess tells us, “Zuzana and Nick were a dream to work with – super laid back, lovely people, oozing with style and creativity. The setting for Zuzana and Nick’s ceremony was breathtaking, and the hall was styled perfectly. I LOVED the DJ set with Zuzana and Nick’s friends spinning 80’s vinyl. Perfect way to end an awesome day!”
We would have liked to of been there just to sample her grandmother’s traditional Czech biscuits!
