Amongst the exhibitors, there was a trend to intimate events with some off beat elements.

Starcut Flowers had a bamboo ceremony "teepee" set up

and also created this beach themed arrangement at the Dolphin Heads Resort exhibit.

Affair of the Heart Intimate Weddings designed an exhibit for couples looking for a small wedding.

While Just Smitten used warm colours and tealights to create a feeling of intimacy at their Bridal Table display.

Special guest "Betsy" from Whitsunday Hot Rod Tours was popular with the brides from Under the Veil's roving fashion parade.

There were fashion parades on the red carpet too.

Lollypop Lane Kidswear and Brooke Lee Modelling organised a fashion parade of girl's formal wear.
