When a wedding has gestated longer than your baby, you know it’s gotta be a good one! I met Jayne and Zeke well before our baby boy August came into the world, but his birth happened to coincide with their wedding date, and although I’d been with them longer than I carried him – I wasn’t able to actually be there on the day! A happy/sad clash of dates – but an example of what you can achieve when fabulous vendors are able to step in on the day and work their magic!
I met up with this lovely couple in sunny Perth, where they were living for most of the planning process. With a few trips over to Melbourne, and a lot of emails, I worked with them to create the style that Jayne had a clear vision of – with gorgeous gingham, soft blush colours, a rustic vibe and, of course, an homage to their beloved foster dogs.
With details such as individual tiny dogs and cows painted white for the place names, to the gingham napkins and stationery details – this wedding was in the detail. Katie from Pollen and Patina was a creative force to be reckoned with, not only producing the amazing floral design but also penning all the chalkboard signs and lettering. That woman is a star.
We trawled through vintage stores when Jayne and Zeke were in town, along with Jayne’s lovely parents – her dad actually made ALL of the trestle tables for the wedding. AMAZING. These were just what Jayne had envisaged for her day, under the lights strung across the clear-span marquee. When I realised I wasnt’ going to be able to be there on the day to set up everything we’d worked so hard to collate – Katie put me in touch with Lauren from Etc Events Styling and she was an absolute godsend. She took all of my notes on how things should be placed, styled, laid out and arranged and produced the vision we’d worked towards. Such a professional!
It was a pure joy working with these two – and I know the next chapter in their lives will be one filled with love, laughter and lots of licks from beautiful puppies!
