A Peek Inside One Of Brisbane's Most Dreamy Wedding Venues

One couple, one venue and a whole lot of fun.

It’s no secret we love love here at Style and that’s why from time to time we share it with you, too. In our October issue of Style we shared Jason Holland and Layne Sutton’s wedding day at Victoria Park.

Here’s the need-to-knows.

How did he propose?

A full day of special activities that reflected our first dates. It started off at Oxford 152 in Bulimba where we had our first date, Jason even putting on the shirt he wore on that date. The day ended at the Pullman hotel where Jason had made a photo album with pictures from an overseas trip we had just taken with the last page being a photo of our dog Dougie with a sign around his neck saying “Will you marry dad?”.

Ceremony and reception venue?

The Garden Marquee, Victoria Park Wedding Venue

Describe the location and why you chose it…

Victoria Park is such a beautiful location and the staff were on the ball and so easy to work with in the lead up to our wedding. The Garden Marquee has floor to ceiling glass windows looking out towards the parklands and with the city in the background, it is magical. We loved holding our ceremony on the Garden Marquee’s deck, then moving inside for our sit-down reception.

Funniest moment?

We were so lucky that all our plans and days leading up to the wedding went so smooth. My uncle drove me, my dad and sister in the bridal car. We were staying only five minutes’ drive from Victoria Park but neither my uncle nor dad knew the directions. We went up a wrong street which was a dead end.
