Aww Stacey and Ben might be one of the cutest couples ever. Their adorable wedding to end all adorable weddings took place in Melbourne and was packed to the brim with colourful and personalised details. From the DIY flowers, the rainbow balloon arch and the bride’s gorgeous pink leather jacket and pink glitter trimmed veil combo – yep, there’s so much to love in this incredible celebration.
They chose May for their wedding (which is Autumn down under) and they were inspired by colour (duh!), vintage 1960s elements, poms poms, Star Wars! “Our wedding was laid back, colourful, sentimental and intimate”, explained the bride. “Neither of us grew up in Melbourne but it has always felt like home to both of us. When it came time to find venues we needed it to ‘feel’ like us – not too fancy but also not just a purpose built function centre. We wanted something with soul. We also wanted it to be very local so that when we look back our wedding day will reflect a moment and community for that part of our lives.”
I hope you’re ready for some Monday morning feels because Lori and Lach’s wedding has got ALL THE EMOTIONS. They were married in Melbourne in June (on the same weekend they first met in real life after chatting for months on MySpace!) at The Budgie Smuggler, a super cool, industrial-style warehouse event and gallery space.
They wanted to make the day feel as much like ‘them’ as possible so that meant great food, a casual atmosphere and no extra fuss. “It was so important for our day to be about us with our closest family and friends joining us for the celebration”, said the bride. “We decided against a lot of the norms of wedding planning, we saw each other before the ceremony and we didn’t have a sit down meal. I didn’t wear a veil and we were two of the last people to leave the night – it was so important to us to enjoy the day for as long as humanly possible!”
Georgia and Vince’s wedding was hosted in the most beautiful little chapel we’ve ever laid eyes on. It was brought to life by their love of the 50s and 60s and their lovely personal and romantic day.
“Vince and I share a love of all things mid-century,” Georgia explains, “including the music, the fashion, the hairstyles, and the cars. When we became engaged, we both knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding and took influence from our love of the 50s and 60s.”
Georgia looked stunning in a beautiful polka dot tulle rockabilly dress from Pixie Pocket and a retro style veil from Me and My Girl Vintage, which sat atop her perfectly curled hair and vintage-inspired make up. Also – JUST LOOK AT HER LOVE HEART NAILS! Fierce and we’re feeling it.
Vince wore all black from Ferrari Formal Wear, with a black polka dot pocket square. We also love that Georgia and Vince got ready together in the morning, before Georgia got changed for an intimate first look.
