The couple: Yasmin & Dennis
Where: Bells at Killcare, NSW
What we did:
Custom designed welcome sign, seating chart and thank you signage
Vintage frame installation and floristry
Yasmin, a friend and colleague of mine pulled me aside one Monday and said, "I really need someone who can oversea the set-up for my wedding. Someone I can trust to take care of the details. I want you to do it."
Three months later I was driving across the Mooney Mooney Bridge, car packed with chalkboard signage, props and flowers. Glancing at the digital clock, I took a deep breath and hoped that Killcare wasn't too far off.
(It was, but I'm a pro and left 30 minutes buffer time so all was a-ok ).
I turned off the highway and after 30 minutes of winding road, I had reached my destination. Nestled between the ocean and the bush, Bells feels like a million miles away. Private and old world, lush and manicured- it was the perfect place for Yasmin and her Beau to say 'I do'.
Off the reception hall is a small courtyard and pergola. Yasmin wanted something fun, elegant and interactive to occupy the space. Thanks to some creativity and (of course) a whole lot of Pinterest, I designed a hanging installation, complete with op-shop gold frames and some DIY floristry to finish it off.
The design was easy but the main obstacle was hanging it and as I was on a solo mission this proved quite challenging. Luckily, Bells is a a playground for wealthy Sydney day-trippers and I was lucky to employ the assistance of two helicopter pilots hanging out on the lawn. Fortunately their customers were running late, leaving them ample time to assist me whilst I battled with the worlds thinest fishing line. Excellent team work guys!
The result? A interactive show piece that captured the eye and imagination. AND one very happy couple 🙂
