We clearly had fun with this one! A retro inspired wedding shoot, with the freshness of today. Never be afraid to marry the old with the new and up-cyle to give something old a whole lot of new!
The mod concept began with the talented up-cycle specialist, ‘Loved by Arlo’. Amber, together with the LENZO team created a soft pastel palette mood board to inspire all traders involved. The inspirational focal point, a ping pong ball. And who ever saw them looking so fab? Hand painted by ‘Loved by Arlo’ to create a handmade garland and a show-stopper polish chandelier – and if you love this as much as we do, ‘Loved by Arlo’ is now taking orders for custom designs (stop it)!!!
The shoot was held at Melbourne’s historic ‘North Fitzroy Bowls Club’ with the short green surface perfectly complimenting the ‘mod’ theme.
Perfect doesn’t even cut it when it comes to the stationery, created by Nathalie of ‘Imprintables’. Fonts of today married with patterns of yesterday – Nathalie nailed the colour palette and the theme.
Stef of ‘Stefani Driscoll Photography’ captured each and every moment from the bombshell blooms by Geelong’s talented ‘She’s a Wildflower,’ to the beautifully dressed bar cart (or cake cart in this instance) available from ‘Dann Event Hire’. The bespoke pastel garlands were created by ‘Imprintables’. ‘Sweet Bakes’ creatively hand cut rice paper to create a 60s inspired pattern on a tier of her delicate mint cake (she is incredible).
And if it were our last supper, we would choose to dine on a table like this! A hand painted vintage table tennis surface (again, up cycled by ‘Love by Arlo’) featuring divine Mud crockery available at ‘Red Hill House’, matte gold cutlery and geometric chairs from ‘Dann Event Hire’ and a watercolour favour which doubles as a place card by ‘Sweet Bakes’.
The ceremony was a spectacular mix of bursting blooms and that ‘show stopper’ chandelier, which featured handmade pastel concrete vases by ‘Vessel and Vine’ and layered tables available through ‘Beautiful Room’ in Surrey Hills.
Our model Steph appropriately wore something old, and something new – a stunning hand beaded jumpsuit from ‘One Day Bridal’ and a genuine 60s number from ‘Era Vintage Bridal’. The look was completed with accessories from ‘Bell Frankie + Co’ and ‘Samantha Wills’. ‘Hannah Mapletoft’ created a ‘Twiggy’ inspired look with hair and make-up.
