Whimsical & Decadent Haunted Forest Wedding

A children’s farm doesn’t seem like your typical wedding venue, but when you bring on the creative genius of Michael Strownix to style the whole thing up, it became the perfect place for Caitlin and Adrian’s April wedding day. “Our friend works at the farm,” the bride told us, “and it’s a place that both of us had spent a lot of happy time. The balance of stunning natural beauty, rustic appeal and just a touch of absurdity with goats and peacocks wandering round appealed to us, too.”

“While we didn’t have a particularly theme in mind,” she continued, “someone described it as ‘like an old book shop in a haunted forest’ which I think just about sums it up. We just tried to inject little bits of ourselves and own own taste into things to make it feel a bit more personal to us. It was unashamedly whimsical and a bit silly, but with just enough tradition and sincerity to give it some gravity.”

Sunset Meets Festival Vibes in Melbourne

Two Ton Max in North Melbourne was the perfect blank canvas for our friends at Good Day Club to unleash all the festival party vibes for Becky and Gearóid’s wedding day! The couple met at a music festival, but instead of the usual tipi and field theme for their day, they chose beautiful relaxed sunset vibes moving into a dark, neon-filled party night.

Becky wore a custom top by Coralie Newman with a skirt by BHLDN for their ceremony, changing into a dress by the same brand for the reception. She paired them with jewellery by small businesses and the bridesmaids chose their own dresses.

Gold Coast Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Themed Wedding with Red Roses Galore!

Inspired by their love of vintage and a rock n roll aesthetic, Corey and Elle’s March wedding was so authentically ‘them’. In fact, nearly all their guests remarked it was exactly how they imagined their wedding to be! The couple lucked out with their venue – the Mobile Barber Shop Depot in Queensland – a warehouse space stuffed with vintage leather chesterfields, antique fabrics and unique brick walls provided the perfect starting point for their day.

In fact the only décor that needed adding was the florals. “I’m obsessed with red roses,” explained the bride, “and always knew I wanted a big installation. Our florist Xavier Nicolle delivered just that!”

Colourful & Artistic Australian Wedding with a Parade

With the dress code for the day ‘try to outshine us!’ you just know you’ve got a fun, colourful wedding on your hands! Anna and Alex were inspired by ‘everything and anything’ for their October wedding held in Redfern, Australia. “We only paid attention to traditions that we cared about and agreed with, so we left out a lot of things that people are used to seeing at weddings,” Anna said.

“We had (too many) ideas based on our interests and what we thought would be fun for guests,” she continued, “but the real inspiration came once we found our venues. We looked at lots of more traditional venues, which came with impressive views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House etc, but after seeing a few one day we ended up visiting the cellar door of our favourite vineyard, and had such a great time.”

A Tattoo Meets Rose Gold Inspired Leap Day Wedding

Brendon and Danielle married on February 29th 2020 in the grounds of Ravenswood Homestead, in Victoria, Australia. They were inspired by Danielle’s champagne pink dress for the theme of their wedding. It was picked up while on holiday in Vietnam, a sample off the rack, from a random bridal store. This, juxtaposed with their tattoos on full display and deep burgundy in the florals made for a theme that was personal to them.

“I didn’t want things too matching and soft,” explained Danielle, the bride, “and we wanted to kick out the misconception that people with tattoos can’t be tasteful! I think the style of our wedding and food showed we had class, while still being true to our personalities.”

Disco Meets Vintage: A Relaxed, Warehouse Wedding with an Epic Tinsel Jacket!

Esther and Yousef had a look at a couple of Pinterest boards when they started planning their August 2019 wedding, but in the end they just trusted their gut to go with things they loved! They also took a lot of inspiration from previous weddings that their decorators, Good Day Club, had done.

They made a conscious effort to step away from all the other weddings they’d attended and focused on creating a day that suited them. They were married at Mountain Goat Beer, a working, red brick, warehouse style brewery bar in Richmond, Australia. They put their focus, and majority of their budget, on the things important to them (namely, the catering!) and left behind stuff that didn’t matter to them (such as fancy transport). Their invites were sent via Paperless Post, and they didn’t have bridesmaids or groomsmen.
