{Styling by Penny Lane Studio} Emma’s Boho Birthday

Once in a while you receive a brief where almost ‘anything goes’. This was one of those events.  When Emma from Bella Boheme contacted me to help her style her 40th birthday, the brief was ‘Do anything you like, just please keep it Bright, Beautiful and Boho’.

Taking place at the beginning of a very chilly Blue Mountains winter season, Emma was looking to the event styling to warm the intimate Lindsay’s Cafe. With 35 guests, the affair was intimate and the quaint, yet simple palette of the venue was the perfect place to make loads of impact.

We went to town with luscious florals taking the focus. A delicious drinks station and cake table styled with decadent fruits, florals and delicious vintage glassware set the stage for the treats which were being served.

From the ceilings inside and outside from the trees we hung gorgeous coloured moroccan lanterns and around the stage,  a huge floral installation and a chandelier, a gift from Emma’s Mother for her wedding took the focus.

Tables were dressed with tall vases, dripping in delicious florals and ivy, flowing onto the tables, accompanied by smaller arrangements and a collection of coloured moroccan votives. We then lit the entire event in delicious fuchsia lighting, creating and intimate and warm glow.

This was one of my favourite events of 2014, whilst it was an intimate affair no stone was left unturned in styling with the opportunity to use my open imagination with the details. I was thrilled to relive this beautiful event when Hooray Mag shared the event on their blog.

A special thank you to the gorgeous Kylie from Kylie Carson Photography for her amazing photography and Stephanie from thoughtful petal for her work on the amazing florals. Of course huge thank you to Emma for the opportunity to allow me to let my creativity go!

{Penny Lane Styling} A styled shoot at Logan Brae Orchard

It was indeed an honour when gorgeous friend Grace asked me to join her and style a shoot showcasing amazing Blue Mountains and Sydney talent for the Hello May blog. Winter 2013 set the scene for the  styled shoot at Logan Brae Orchard in Blackheath.

We were also joined by cool kids Ashdown and Bee with their fabulous furniture and other props and D&D Letterpress jumped on board with their menus. The Gorgeous Kate Johnson was dressed in Jenny Packham and Amanda Wakely gowns from Helen Rodrigues Boutique with her makeup by Helen Sotis.

With the sun granting us an uncharacteristically warm Mountains winters day, and joined by a bunch of fun and creative souls, the day had the perfect recipe for a fun filled shoot, with stunning results. 

More images from the shoot can be seen on the Hello May Blog

{Beautiful blush pink and white wedding} styled by Penny Lane Studio

There is something quite special about a weekday wedding. We were recently asked to style an intimate wedding in the gorgeous Misty’s room over looking the escarpment at the Fairmont Resort Leura. The brief was for a softer look incorporating the bridal colours pink and white with a hint of twinkle.

Two beautiful large arrangements welcomed the guests at the door. Tables were styled with gorgeous modern mirrored vases with soft pink and white florals of roses, lisianthus, tulips, eucalyptus leaves and dusty miller. Petit dimpled silver and white votives were perfect for a daytime wedding and added a hint of texture and twinkle to the arrangement.

The room was also set with a gorgeous crystal chandelier and white tiffany chairs.
