{Client Event Feature} Mick & Holly’s Vintage Wedding

table2Table Collage

Last year I received a phone call from one of my favourite clients, Melissa from The Sweet Society in Melbourne. It was on the eve of breathing life into my new brand Penny Lane Studio. ‘I have a brief for vintage wedding. Nothing too flowery. I am thinking Navy, Doilies and Burlap’. Together we went to work on seeking inspiration.

As the creative unfolded, I found light when I hand died some imported French Lace paper doilies. The Navy dye picked up the detail in the doilies beautifully. They were adhered to kraft bags and embellished with kraft discs stamped with the bride and grooms name. The detail was finished with ribbon. To this day, nearly 12 months later, this will still remain my favourite design.

In lieu of a cake the Bride and Groom decided to go with a Cheese Tower. We decided to go with a Cake Bunting. I hand painted their names onto a kraft flags in white guache. The table was finished with a kraft heart garland, also designed especially for the wedding.

For the antipasto bar, I hand stamped some timber spoons with a Navy Lace design. From vintage napkins a bunting was born.

Melissa’s styling was reflective of an organic natural approach. She accented the styling with elegant lace, stunning florals and a touch of ribbon to ensure the feeling of a ‘special celebration’ was still felt throughout the room. Use of white cake stands and frames tied the styling in with the modern italian brasserie which the wedding took place.

Gorgeous details including Olive Oil as gifts for the guests, a photo booth and kraft paper and twine for the guests to wrap posy’s on their departure ticked the boxes for a well considered and beautifully executed event.

Whilst a creative can never give away too much, its always nice to share the creative process particularly when it comes to beautifully handcrafted designs.

David and I have been busy in the Studio building our ranges of Bespoke Wedding Stationery and Decor. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue seems to play its hand in the portfolio coming to fruition. As Designers, we are never ones to follow the crowd (we just can’t take ourselves there), so I can promise you the new year will bring a range that is Unique, cultured, colourful, yet retaining that influence from Vintage and Classic designs….

With a restructure across both brands housed in our studio, we will be bringing across some of the products from the red elephant creative range (including those famous doily spoons) in an effort to align the products and the core nature of each business. Red elephant will then return to its roots as the paper art creative where it began.

And might I just add (with a whisper)…in true form, I have been ‘living the dream’ in sharing my love for creating a beautiful event with some amazing stylists, event organisers and even glorious publications. We are over the moon to announce that we will have an amazing platform to show off to you our Bespoke Ranges for 2013! Its going to be an amazing year!

Until then, we wish you all the very best for a safe, happy and beautiful Christmas Celebration and a Creative and Prosperous 2013.
