We held our wedding reception at Room With Roses, a gorgeous cafe specialising in high tea, located in the beautiful Brisbane Arcade in the city. It was a fun, relaxed light lunch featuring a lot of seriously delicious finger food and Room With Roses’ specialty raspberry punch. Every part of the planning process for the reception was so easy and painless, thanks to the amazing staff!
I loved every part of our reception – it was so wonderful to be surrounded by our friends and family, all enjoying themselves and sharing in the happiness of our big day. I remember laughing a lot, giving and receiving countless hugs, and crying a little during the speeches. I remember feeling joyful, excited, and so, so loved.
To celebrate our 4th anniversary this year, we decided to revisit Room With Roses in a different way – we picked up two delicious hampers filled with their signature high tea treats, and shared a picnic at New Farm Park!
The hampers came boxed up very nicely together, including disposable cutlery, cups, napkins and plates, but we decided to re-pack everything into our own wicker picnic basket so we could use our own real silverware and plates and have less to carry on the way back.
Unfortunately we did have a little mishap in that the savoury tart contained pesto, even though I had let Room With Roses know about my nut allergies when I booked the hamper. However, I emailed them on Monday and the owner left me a message straight away apologising profusely for the mistake and offering to refund one of the hampers, which I very much appreciated. I’m glad to see that the customer service at Room With Roses is still as high quality as I remember it being in 2014.
Here’s to four years together and many more to come!
