Real Wedding: Tran & Simon's Calile Hotel Wedding

Tran embodies elegance, a kind-hearted, wonderful soul that we had the privilege of getting to know across many fittings at our Brisbane bridal studio & boutique. We spent time over the space of a year working alongside Tran to bring her dream wedding dress to life for her Brisbane wedding.

Tran knew early on that she wanted a custom wedding dress and a couture-level masterpiece, and after 200 hours of hand sewing, design, and garment architecture, this is her special day.

From design to creation, from morning to night, Tran's Brisbane wedding was a dream come true.

Inside Tran's Brisbane Wedding 

Teamwork makes the dream work: Tran's wedding day vendors.

Every wedding is only complete when we mention all of the wonderful vendors that a bride handpicks for their special day. Tran's crew was nothing short of star-studded, featuring some of Brisbane's most iconic wedding vendors.

We've included links to each vendor at the bottom in case their services are something you might be interested in.

The Venue: The Calile Hotel

As far as venues go, The Calile Hotel has become an iconic Brisbane hotspot for many brides, and it's easy to see why. With their famous catchphrase, 'designed for people who know what they want - people who've seen average, but don't plan to settle for it,' the backdrop of The Calile created an incredible aesthetic vibe that carried on throughout every detail of Tran's wedding day.

Videography: Butterscotch Studio

A frequent videography choice for Euphorie brides in Brisbane, Weddings by Butterscotch Studio creates movie magic by giving their all to your wedding day. Well-known for crafting beautiful digital heirlooms, they're an excellent option for all things video if you're located in Brisbane or surrounds.

Makeup: J-Dolls a.k.a Janise Chan

Regarded by many as one of Brisbane's best makeup artists and beloved by many Euphorie brides, J-Dolls, better known as Janise Chan, is an incredible makeup artist, dedicated creative, and a woman who loves seeing other women look and feel their best, from brides to peers in the industry, Janise is a true gem in the Brisbane bridal industry.

Doing both commercial/creative work and bridal, Janise gets booked out fast, so if you're after her talents, we recommend getting in touch with her ASAP!

Epic Ice Cream: Wheel and Spoon

Tran's wedding featured an incredible vendor, Wheel and Spoon, a pop-up ice cream cart, or 'gelateria,' that we've been seeing at several Euphorie real bride weddings lately. Wheel and Spoon describe themselves as the perfect vendor for 'the not-so-traditional couple looking to add an element of gelato-loving fun to their day." Boasting options like bespoke flavours, customisable cups, room for personalised additions, and more.

Boasting different packages for either the wedding ceremony or the reception, Wheel and Spoon is a beautiful option for the bride who wants to add some flavour to their Queensland wedding.

Pet Wedding Services / First Class Pet Wedding Assistants

One of Tran's vendors was Kyle and the incredible team at First Class Pet Wedding Assistants. As a company that knows how essential fur babies can be for us all, Kyle & her team work diligently to ensure your pup is taken care of to the highest standard while being part of your wedding day.

Pet Wedding Assistants will work with photographers to capture moments of you with your pets on the day. They'll be with them at the ceremony (if applicable, be mindful that some venues do not allow pets at all) and then take them home, walk and feed your little love, and ensure they're taken care of for the agreed duration so that you can party your wedding night away without worrying about your baby. And did they even offer honeymoon care if you need it?

Photographer: Lover of Mine

Over the many years we've spent crafting dream wedding dresses, Lover of Mine has become the go-to photographer for many Euphorie brides, including Tran for her Calile Hotel wedding in Brisbane.

If you peek behind the lens at Lover of Mine, you'll find Anthony and Kim, a husband and wife duo who were inspired by the births of their children to capture incredible moments. What once started as a hobby became a career, and they've now captured an epic 400+ weddings in Australia and the world alike.

Words can't do justice to the level of dedication and skill these two passionate creatives embody. Well-known for capturing unforgettable memories, Lover of Mine is inspired by minimalism, symmetry, natural light, authentic lovers, grand landscapes, family heirlooms, and much more.

Bridal Hairstylist: Paula Maree Hair

Paula Maree is another highly regarded Brisbane icon, a bridal hairstylist beloved for working magic with dozens of Euphorie brides on their wedding day with her talented skills. Often featured in publications like The Aisle, Brisbane Bride, and many more, Paula's work is impeccable. With over 25 years of experience in the industry, her longevity can easily be traced back to her endless talent.

Kate Dawes Flower Design

Yet another iconic Brisbane wedding vendor, Kate Dawes' eye for floral detail, makes her one of the industry greats. There are dozens of compliments we could give Kate's work, but you don't need to look any further than the impressive hundreds of strictly 5-star reviews she's received from clients over the years. Her abundant skill matches her professional execution in floral design, where she is known for impeccable taste and quality.

Oscar Hunt Tailors

Celebrant: Laurel-Lea Ross
