Event Styling is More Than Just Centrepieces at Victoria Park

With breathtaking full city and golf course views, Victoria Park Function Venue offers a splendid blend of contemporary elegance and first class catering.

The six unique wedding rooms create a superb setting for any style of wedding from a memorable ceremony to a reception any time of the day; breakfast, lunch, cocktail and dinner.

Victoria Park are on trend with the latest in wedding themes and styling for 2013. We asked them a few questions that might help all the lovely Queensland brides-to-be in planning their nuptials for 2013...

What are the most popular trends for weddings in 2013?

Mint is becoming a huge trend with the stunning pastels exploding onto the wedding scene in the form of cakes, ribbons, bridesmaids dresses and table linen. Another big trend coming into Australia from the United States is covered centrepieces; glass cloches over flowers, vintage birdcages with flowers inside, and submerged floral centrepieces.

How can brides on a budget still achieve their dream wedding in reference to these popular trends?

The great thing about Victoria Park is that we are so flexible in allowing our couples to supply their own styling. Couples like to be able to tell their guests that they handmade something small, like their place cards or bonbonniere gifts, but then they utilise our services for the larger items like centrepieces and lolly buffets. Some couples prefer a complete stress-free day and this is where our stylist meets with the couple to design a unique concept that complements their style, taste and budget, and to coordinate their entire setup.

What do you suggest for that couple who don't know where to start?

Pop in and meet our fantastic team, as we can guide you through the whole process, from booking your Celebrant , to food and beverages, Event Styling, entertainment, MC’s, luxury transport – the possibilities are endless.

Pina Fiorenza New Store in Cairns!

Cairns will reinforce its position as Australia’s bridal mecca next month when renowned bridal house Fiorenza opens the doors to its luxury bridal boutique at The Pier. Award-winning designer Pina Fiorenza said she has waited nearly two decades to open a store in Cairns after beginning her fashion career in North Queensland over 25 years ago.
“It’s the ultimate reward for me; I always dreamed of coming back and having a presence in Cairns, honoring the unique style and sophistication of brides up here,” she said. It was during a visit to Cairns earlier this year to showcase her 2012 collection for the Wedding and Formal Expo that Ms Fiorenza decided the time was right.
“Cairns has evolved into the supreme bridal destination; from its amazing locations through to the talented people who work in the industry,” Ms Fiorenza said. “The brides are also remarkable; there’s no indecisive ‘bridezilla factor’ up here – they know what they want, they value craftsmanship and they have the confidence make a statement. “They see a collection, pick out the most fashion-forward design, try in on once and say ‘yes this is the one’ – it is quite amazing.”
Managed by mother and son team Lesley and Joe Frisicia, the opulent boutique promises to bring ‘couture bridal at a prêt-a-porter pricetag’ to Cairns, with Ms Fiorenza’s signature embellishments and exquisite attention to detail imbued in every gown.
Mr Frisicia said the store’s opening celebrations next month will include a week of champagne designer sessions from the 28th of July with Ms Fiorenza on hand to personally style brides.
“Cairns brides are discerning, stylish and appreciate luxury so we’re very excited to be able to offer them the kind of truly unique experience usually found in fine fashion houses of Paris and Milan,” he said. It also means that brides who used to travel to Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne for Fiorenza fittings can now shop closer to home. Fiorenza at The Pier Shopping Centre will be open to the public from the 28th of July.
