Today I am so excited to share with you a wonderful wedding we helped to style back in December last year.
Catherine was the perfect bride – relaxed but super organised and full of great ideas. It was so much fun to work with her, building on the bits and pieces she had already organised to bring the day together.
Bobby is from California and many of the wedding guests travelled to WA from California and other overseas destinations, so a world/travel theme was carried through the styling. We used heart shaped garlands made from pages of an atlas, atlas print cushions, vintage suitcases, a large personalised atlas print for guests to sign, and bespoke stationery featuring a travel theme.
The ceremony was exactly what I picture when I think of an Australian wedding, held on the white sands of Bunker Bay with the clearest of clear blue skies. Afterwards guests enjoyed an intimate reception at Bunkers Beach Cafe which was the perfect venue, relaxed yet elegant.
Catherine and Bobby’s wedding was everything a wedding should be – a coming together of two families and celebration of a beautiful relationship. I feel so lucky to have been a part of their day.
Catherine tells the story of how she and Bobby met and how their wedding came together.
With my trusty Pinterest boards I scoured the internet for everything, including my dress! I soon realised with Kristy’s guidance I had started a bit of a travel theme with a duck egg blue palette, so I ran with it. With the ceremony I was very aware that a beach wedding can look a little randomly placed so I researched hard to find a way to make it look more formal. I eventually came up with the idea of have a babies breath garland hanging behind Bobby and I which I felt gave the ceremony a bit more intimacy for both us and our guests. With the flower garland, rows of chairs, a rustic signing table and the pristine beach behind us it looked absolutely perfect and was exactly what I wanted.
A moment I remember vividly, other than my vows, (because I was actually running a little early) was when I popped my head inside the cafe before heading down to the ceremony. There was Kristy, Bec my florist plus their husbands and all the cafe staff working hard to turn my dream into reality, and although they were not quite finished I was already so impressed with how everything looked and I knew that this was really going to be the best night ever! I loved every minute of planning and looking back on my day I wouldn’t have changed a single thing. I feel so blessed to have had such an amazing day and to now be married to my best friend.”
