Early in 2016 we began planning the first ever Hitched Wedding Festival at The Brightside. Ever since we set foot in The Brightside we were taken back to big nights out in Brisbane.
The Brightside is an iconic music venue in the heart of Fortitude Valley and has been host to a giant list of both local and international acts. As of 2016 however they are also offering the opportunity to tie the knot right there where so many bands have performed.
Offering both the entertainment space or their open plan beer garden, they can provide an array of high end lighting and AV services. In addition to this they offer the options of either external or in house catering services.
We were invited to help them put together an open night with a difference. Given The Brightside often hosts evenings devoted to food trucks with a festival feel it seemed only natural to offer this same atmosphere to potential brides and grooms.
We lined the beer garden with vendors for our couples to peruse as they listened to the sweet tunes of Steven Childs. Inside we styled the space to give our guests an idea of what they could achieve in the venue and packed the carpark with an assortment of food trucks, all of which were lit up under the lights of our sponsor Love Illuminated.
