Styling, seating and timing


Styling the backdrop to the ceremony is a toi toi arch, bohemian rug & pots, greenery, vases & candles

Seating all can be standing, seated or a mixture of both. Chairs used are natural wood with various prints on them. Classic and picturesque.


Timing it’s your day and your ceremony. This part of the wedding can be the focal point or the formality. It’s really up to you whether the ceremony is 15 or 35 minutes long. The Celebrant will ask you questions upon meeting and leading up to the wedding date. This builds a relationship of trust and knowledge about you as a couple. 


These questions determine all the finer details about the sort of ceremony you would like and the type of couple you are. This relationship formed with your Celebrant is where the tender, funny, or special moments arrive during your Ceremony. It’s her knowledge of your LOVE and journey together that make the ceremony extra special on the day as well as providing addition support to you and your family and friends.


Once the Ceremony concludes let’s move into the Chef’s Dining Room for the Reception. You may choose to use this time any way you like. In addition to canapes, cake and bubbles you might want a quick boogie with everyone on the dance floor. Maybe group photos and speeches. Tailor your wedding the way you wish.


90 minutes can be broken down into a 10 minute mingle and be seated arrival. 25-minute ceremony and 55-minute reception. This time slot is yours to make MAGIC with, but we will be strict on keeping to a t schedule. Please consider this before booking a Pop-Up Wedding and discuss all options with your wedding planner.

Meet Kirsty. Things to note about her; she has a wee son named Archer, an American Bulldog, Meg and a fat cat called Cartman.


Equally important, she has being photographing for many years, but took it out to the public about 7 years ago.


Her wedding work speaks for itself, so have a peak at her website. Capturing moments from small gestures between couples to more demure & poised, always ready to snap up a gorgeous image.


Anna Flanagan
Anna the Celebrant   


I’m one of those lucky few who can genuinely say I love my job and what I do. I love, Love! It’s a special privilege to be a part of a couples wedding – the intimacy of shared vows, lifelong promises and the feels, oh! the feels.


As an Independent Celebrant I’m not bound to rules or traditions, which means I create ceremonies that are 100% what you want!


Your ceremony is you telling the world how you feel about your partner, making promises and demonstrating your intentions for your married life together. It’s my job to help you portray that in a way that’s authentic for you both.



Time to celebrate


The Reception is hosted in the Chef’s Dining Room with canapes, cake and bubbles.

Your guests will be treated to platters of plated goodness to suit any dietary requirements (gf,df,vegan).


Gorgeously garnished canapes approximately 2-4 per guests with choice of celebratory bubbles or non-alcoholic mocktail.

Choice of one tier or two. Now pick your flavor, mocha chocolate or white chocolate. Iced white and garnished to perfection. You may use our cake topper or provide your own.


Canapes Menu / seasonal menu & subject to change


  • pikelets with smoked cream cheese & capers
  • vegetable satay skewers
  • feta & beetroot tartlets
  • cauliflower bites
  • deli plates w. fruit, cheese, bread, dips, olives, meat
  • tapas style finger food



New Brighton is iconic and nothing says this better than our Clocktower. If you're from here, grew up here or just passing through this is quintessential Brighton. Take advantage of the history making the graffiti art, laneways and waterfront photo’s your wedding backdrop.


Our beach backyard captures the most natural, relaxed moments in an absolutely serene setting.

Seriously, feet in the sand goals right here for couples, wedding parties and group photos.
