Sunshine on a rainy day..

This winter weather has us daydreaming of sunshine and colour... so what better time than now to share one of our recent weddings from when the sun was still shining... and the bride loved colour.

On a most glorious sunny April day, we had the pleasure of styling the wedding of Kalarie and Jeremy at the National Wine Centre.

Kalarie came to us knowing she wanted a rustic feel and she had already planned many aspects of her day using our favourite tool, pinterest!! But like many of our brides, she wanted some help pulling all of her ideas together.. and while she was very in touch with the planning process, she needed someone to make sure it would all look the way she wanted on the day. 

Here are some of the details from their wedding.

The centre-pieces featured an assortment of glass jars and bottles, with wood slabs and candles on hessian bases. The flowers were a mixture of bright sunny colours, which Kalarie helped pick from a garden in the Adelaide Hills. To help fit within her budget, we donned our floristry hats and arranged these for her.  

The place settings were juicy green pears tied with personalised rustic paper tags.

For Kalarie and Jeremy, it was incredibly important to honour and include their loved ones in their day. The couple wrote letters to each guest and placed them on their napkins at the dinner table - and they also asked that we feature some of their special guests in the styling.
Along the corridor to their venue, there was a series of glass display cabinets. We used each of these to feature one of the special groups of guests: Grandparents, Parents, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen and the couple themselves.

It such a lovely thought. And Kalarie told us later that as she approached the reception room her eyes filled with tears at the sight of them.Good tears!

The other way that the couple decided to include their guests was via a photobooth to capture the fun of the night! This is a great way make sure you get some snaps of guests on the night. 

And finally.. the most important detail in any wedding: the happy smiling,  in-love couple:

Thank you Kalarie and Jeremy for letting us be part of your day.
