Well, indeed I know some Wedding Industry Fabuloso’s will not be up this early in the morning after Inlighten Photography threw their big party at the Ivy in Sydney last night. It as a night of the Who’s who on Sydney’s wedding scene to get together, network and kick up their heels with a fun series of photo booths decorated for some Instagram play….don’t you just love it!!?
Last week my gorgeous friend Gerard from Fabmosphere asked me to join him in creating a booth. We love a little glam, so decided the The Great Gatsby was the best way to add a little sparkle to the show!
Gerards gorgeous lounges were backed by a silver slit drape and we even managed to get the very same feathers that were used on the set of Baz Luhrmann’s film! The drinks trolley played its part in carrying the costumes and the most gorgeous Silver Mirror graffiti’ed in red lippy lead the way with the message to Drink Champagne and Strike a Pose! I must confess I nearly fell off my chair when two handsome lads arrived with the HUGE chandelier that Gerard sourced which could have almost stole the show!
Well this is indeed a surprise!! I have been a long time fan of the work of cool kids Ashdown and Bee in Sydney. So when I found out that our Glitter and Sparkle Cake Bunting had made a royal appearance atop gorgeous doughnuts in their latest Pop up Party feature in Hitched Magazine, I was thrilled! Particularly given the photography was by my dear creative gal pal Grace from Willow and Co.
A few months ago I was speaking with one of my favourite clients Gillian of Crumbs of Comfort about a brief she was working on…Gold and Glamorous, think ‘The Great Gatsby’. So armed with the three G’s…Gold, Glamorous and Garden, this is what we came up with for paper styling.
Each butterfly is made from paper. The symbolistic meaning of the butterfly is new life, new beginning, perfect for the unity of a new life together as husband and wife. They loved the butterflies so much they were used on the cake, the dessert table and the chairs.
We took a different turn with the name place cards, instead creating a scroll to lay across the napkin and further dressed with the butterflies a little piece of whimsy which each guest can take home with them.
The gorgeous feature which unfolded was included in the Spring edition of Queensland Brides Magazine and they loved it so much, they repeated it again on their blog.
All the beautiful imagery is captured by the gorgeous Melinda from Chantilly Lace Photography
