{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

{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.

Meet the Stylist: Justine from Sensationally Sweet Events

 

 

Whilst Sensationally Sweet Events is a relatively new business venture for Justine, she has been working in events for years (as it turns out, we have crossed paths in our former lives, rather my former life in corporate events, Justine is still holding rank in a fabulous Surfers Paradise Venue). When you see her work, you can see that the years of industry experience has done its due course for establishing a well rounded and very well considered stylist.

I am a huge fan of Justine’s eclectic style. Her work lends to layers of decor, which is executed beautifully in telling the story of the theme. I love that she uses pieces out of context yet it all still seems to fit so perfectly, for example a frame as a platter or jellybeans to line the plates.

I really look forward to seeing more events from Justine and I hope you enjoy her interview as much as I did.

Describe your style in five words?

Experimental, instinctive, evolving, eclectic & organised

What has been your favourite theme/event to date?

My favourite party I have styled so far would be the girly bridal shower I styled recently for my friend Zoe. I am the mum of 3 young boys so have not had very much opportunity to “do girly” before. There was lots of pink & florals – heaven!

Where do you look for inspiration?

I get inspiration all over the place, definitely from admiring the work of other stylists on blogs and Facebook (I can get lost on-line for hours at a time jumping from link to link) I have also found inspiration for party props in the strangest places such as taking a morning walk and finding old pieces of fencing or strangely shaped sticks and wondering how I could use those things on an upcoming table. I am a tragic garage sale and op shop enthusiast too – I just can’t walk past the chance to make something new and unexpected out of something old

Name one of your all time favourite event décor elements.

Hard to name just one! I guess I would have to say the humble old wooden crate – I own a few and have used them on quite a lot of my tables, I love them because they are functional in that you can sit things on them or in them, they add height and dimension to the table plus they have character and I guess they just suit my decorating style

What is your number one piece of advice for planning an event?

Be organised! I am the queen of writing lists plus I often have the “bare bones” of multiple tables set up in different areas of my house for several weeks in advance so that I can determine what equipment I am going to use on what table and what else I might need to source (I don’t like leaving things to the last minute – it stresses me out!!)
