Our Clients Love Us!

Shelley and Brooke really helped make our day perfect. The vows process was simple, the photos are beautiful. We chose to elope during the covid 19 and definitely look forward to working with Weddings on Bribie again in 2021 with our full wedding party and guest list

Leah Maltby

Sometimes finding the right vendors can be challenging. However, with these 2 Superstar Ladies, these 2 create a formidable team that together will create for you not just a beautiful ceremony that Shelley will ensure resonates with you and tells your unique story, but a photo collection you'll want to have placed throughout your home to relive your magical day by Brooke.

Knowing both for years and working with both over the years, I know that not only are the both super professional, but they are loving, genuine and caring and have an absolute affinity with creating ceremonies that you'll love.
