Liesel + Mitchel – Cairns Cruise Liner Terminal Wedding – 13th July 2013

Townsville based couple Liesel and Mitchell are the epitome of sweetness. These two met at Groovin’ in the Moo and have been loved up ever since. Their gorgeous wedding was featured in Queensland Brides. Check out the link here.

How did you meet?

Through mutual friends at a Townsville music festival 4 years ago. For me it was an instant attraction, for Mitchell – it took some convincing!

Tell us about the proposal…

Mitchell had a beautiful surprise proposal planned (little to my knowledge) however due to work commitments – I was unable to go ahead with his secret plans! His back up option however was more perfect than I could ever imagine – in our recently purchased first home, with our 2 beautiful King Charles Cavaliers, eating a home cooked meal. He presented me with the long awaited and thought about (on my behalf) platinum & diamond solitaire ring – and I said yes!

DIY Details

I really wanted our wedding to be personal and feature special DIY details. With personalised menus, straws, napkins, guest bathroom baskets, personalised macaroons for guests – I felt that we achieved just that. Many of our items were from Etsy or I had designed in conjunction with a graphic designer. Most of them required assembly by us – and that proved to be a time consuming venture!

Key Styling Inspiration

I feel that our wedding day really represented Mitch and I as a couple. It was perfect and we both put a lot of time into the day together.

What was the funniest moment of the day?

It would have to be the speeches given by my sister and Mitchell’s brother.

Special memory?

Our whole wedding day will forever be a special memory. On the 21st July 2012 (the morning of our engagement party) my father suffered from a brain aneurysm – which left him in the Intensive Care Unit in Brisbane for over 3 weeks. He has made a remarkable recovery with absolutely no deficits – so it was the most special day to be able to have my dad there nearly exactly 1 year later – celebrating with us. Something I thought we would never get to do!

Special thanks to…

Special thanks to our family and friends who made the effort to come all the way to Cairns to celebrate our special day. Also a special thanks to all of our suppliers – without them we would not have had such a beautiful wedding. Most of all a special thanks to my husband – who chose to marry me and has made me the most happy woman in the world!

Do you have any advice for future brides-to-be? 

Be organised and prepared- and get a wedding co-ordinator!  Our whole wedding ran smoothly with no problems – and I owe our wonderful wedding planner Claudette for that!”


Congratulations Liesel + Mitchell!
