Getting into shape for the big day

Personal Training Posted On: June 8, 2012

One of the top things on a Bride’s to-do list is to find (and fit into!) their perfect wedding dress.  With so many Bridal Boot Camps and diet plans around it’s no wonder that most brides find this part of the process extremely stressful. At First Class Functions we asked personal trainer (and newly wed) Rebecca Josey for her top 5 tips to help our Brides-to-be whip their booty into shape! Bec Josey is a journalist and qualified personal trainer. Bec now supports […]


The job description of the Bride-to-be is a lengthy one. There is a lot to think about – especially when it comes to ensuring all of the finer details are perfected. Personal trainer and newly-wed Rebecca Josey knows firsthand just how full on the planning is when it comes to saying “I do”. As a health and fitness guru, Bec is confident in designing the perfect fitness regime to whip those booties into shape. So when it came to designing […]

Something Old

Ceremony, Decor, Uncategorized, Vintage Posted On: June 8, 2012

“Vintage is a soft, eclectic style that embodies our nostalgia for days gone by.” – Christina Strutt (Author of Cabbages and Roses: Vintage Chic.) The romantic notion of combining delicate lace and printed fabrics, everyday household items like white enamel pitchers and coloured glass bottles, pretty china plates and dishes and beautiful cottage-garden blooms to create a personalised style has made the old-fashioned fashionable.  And when it comes to styling a wedding, this romanticism translates beautifully across to the celebration […]

Season of Elegance

The weather at Noosa was perfect over the weekend.  Our brides and grooms were treated to stunning blue skies and warm sunshine as they said their “I do’s” on the last Saturday of spring for 2012. One of the lovely newly-wed couples celebrated their nuptials in style with a glamorous reception at Season Restaurant on Hasting Street.  With its spectacular beachfront location, Season provided the perfect setting for the evening and the elegant décor designed by First Class Functions complemented […]

Happiness on Hastings Street

On Saturday, the First Class Functions team headed to the world famous Hastings Street to coordinate the wedding ceremony of a lovely interstate couple.   The weather was a perfect 23 degrees, with hardly a cloud in the sky – the perfect setting for a very romantic ceremony by the sea.   Ricky’s River Bar and Restaurant provided the setting for the elegant reception.  The couple chose simple white centrepieces to compliment the stunning waterfront views teamed with lots of soft, […]

Picture Perfect

Imagine your family and friends gathered together on a sunlit deck as you walk down the aisle with an incredible backdrop of Noosa and surrounds.  Or perhaps picture them mingling over canapés and drinks as the sun sets over the hills behind them.  And now imagine everyone laughing and dancing the night away in the comfort of your very own private penthouse apartment.  If you’re looking for a glamorous and unique venue where you can tailor the décor and menu […]

Rain, rain, go away!

Ceremony, Wedding Coordination Posted On: April 29, 2012

Rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck.  But when you peer out of the window on your special day and its pouring down, you may not feel so lucky.  In fact, you may find your stress levels start to skyrocket – and this is why it is so important to have a wet-weather back up plan. Unfortunately the Sunshine Coast’s name can be a bit deceptive.  Our picture-perfect, golden beaches tend to get thoroughly soaked during […]

Cute as a Button-hole

Button hole, Flowers Posted On: April 27, 2012

Wedding buttonholes have come a long way from the rigid single blooms of the past.  While roses and carnations are still a popular choice for traditionalists, we are now seeing a spectacular array of floral choices from orchids to sea-holly to pepper berries and everything in between! The tradition of the buttonhole has evolved over many years.  In Medieval times, a knight would wear his ladies colours over his heart as a declaration of his love.  And in Ancient Greece, […]
