The contemporary wedding colour palette fit for a modern muse …
Corny title? Perhaps! But nothing sums up the event styling trend we predict big things for at 2020 weddings and beyond quite like it …
For our latest editorial, LENZO’s bridal stylists dove head first into the mind of a modern muse, combining subdued hues, statement décor and fashion-forward finishes to create a latte coloured love affair for the 2020 bride!
Captured in all its cream coloured glory by Elsa Campbell Photography, experience the editorial elegance of 'I Love You A Latte' – LENZO's nougat, nude and neutral inspired nuptials!
Specialising in weddings and gala dinners through to lavish cocktail parties and events, The Park played a starring role in our modern day story telling alongside our beautiful bride and groom. Perched over the prestigious Albert Park Lake, the waterside venue was the most elegant of editorial backdrops, providing a monochromatic canvas on which our wedding stylists could layer luscious shades of latte.
If The Park was a star, it was Complete Function Hire that brought the staging, transforming the flexible function space into a cream themed dream with their generous backdrops, props and décor throughout.
From cushions, flooring and furniture to complete table settings, lighting and linen, Complete Function Hire are a one-stop-prop-and-styling-shop that worked tirelessly with our stylists to bring the mood of our modern muse to life. Along with their vertical ceremony walls and custom-built bar cart, we can’t stop swooning over the trelliage arbour they artfully built behind our dessert bar – not to mention their on-trend ceramic tableware.
For modern floral artistry, we called on the event experts at Babiana Botanic whose distinct 70s aesthetic always makes a stylish statement. From your entire wedding’s arrangements through to bridal bouquets and button holes, their talented team's creations are what wedding dreams are made of.
Whimsically spilling across props and hanging high overhead, Babiana Botanic's lusciously full floral displays were cutting-edge contemporary yet timeless in taste. Elegant and ethereal in whisper white and cool creams, fresh groupings of gorgeous gerberas, hydrangeas, oncidium orchids and roses filled the event space with life and light.
In a series of sexy silhouettes by Grace Loves Lace, our bride shunned overly decorative dress details in favour of all things fun and flirty like her luxe lace socks and shimmy sparkle anklets. Without the guise of a veil, all eyes were on our beautiful bride thanks to Kelly Rose Makeup Artist who played with fresh dewy skin, soft glittery lids and statement eyeliner.
Fit for a contemporary queen, the glamorous modern millinery of Ashlee Lauren. continued to ensure our bride turned heads. Specialists in handmade custom headwear, we opted for a number of opulent nude headbands and freshwater pearl clips to give our modern muse just the right amount of girlie glam.
The sugar on top - or in this case, frosting – came in the form of our bespoke bridal jewellers, KUSH Diamonds. Working collaboratively with brides, grooms and those about to pop the question, KUSH Diamonds specialise in engagement rings, diamond jewellery and special occasion pieces that are handmade locally to suit each lucky recipient.
Our groom, wearing a classic wedding band, was the picture of perfection in a tailor made selection of suits from our favourite formalwear aficionado’s - InStitchu. As per his perfectly dressed partner, our groom stepped out in Bared Footwear while looking delightfully dapper in a custom cream suit for the ceremony (three-piece, nonetheless!) and a show stopping navy tuxedo post-nupitals.
Just like LENZO, Nobody Hates Cake believe that life’s greatest moments call for sweet celebration – and boy, did they bring the sweet in spades to our to stylish celebration!
Specialising in statement cakes for modern couples, Nobody Hates Cake build lasting relationships with the brides they create cakes for that are as strong as their royal icing, often baking melt-in-your-mouth macarons and delectable desserts for other milestones in their bride's lives like baby showers and first birthdays.
Despite being minimal and elegant, the wedding cake they created for us - featuring stone effect icing and delicate rice paper petals - was absolutely epic! Equally impressive, their range of fashionably flavoured desserts including vanilla bean panna cotta and caramel cheesecakes with peanut brittle brought the ‘wow factor’ to our wedding day.
Daintily topping the desserts and adorning our couple’s cocktails, edible flowers by Foraged Flavour were the sweetest of editorial additions. Lovingly grown on a sustainable bee-friendly farm, Foraged Flavour specialise in botanical flavoured syrups and premium edible blooms that are a fun way to inject femininity into your day.
A floral feast for the eyes - arriving in fresh floral punnets or gorgeously preserved in glass jars - we showered the newlyweds in a sea of pretty mixed petals while our patisseries played with a selection of pansies, rose petals, cornflowers and colourful calendula.
Complementing our ultra-cool colour palette in shades of almond, sand and beige, Ivory and Stone toyed with texture and tone in a thoroughly modern way. From frosted and opaque acrylics to luscious matte stocks and sleek wax seals, their welcome signage, seating chart and wedding stationery brought cohesion and charm to each our stylish setups.
The basis of our resplendent reception cocktails, Three Foxes' independent distillery produced boutique batches of vodka, gin, triple sec and ouzo that paired beautifully with our mezze wedding menu. In premium, pint-sized bottles with personalised labels, their Foxtail favours made for the most beautiful boozy take home gifts in flavours of Cranberry + Peach, Negroni and Espresso!
Designing an interactive spread for our contemporary couple, Fara Feasts proved yet again that they’re the masters of modern catering with a selection of Mediterranean grazing boards and cheese plates. Putting the ‘happy’ into happy couple with unapologetic flavours, their assortment of fresh foods included truffle terrine, duck and cherry pâté, smoked paprika passata and wild boar chorizo.
A creative way to unite different areas of an event space, Pickawall's designs proudly announced the sentiments of our special day – none more so than the circular dancefloor decal our couple swayed on while bidding farewell to their fairytale.
