We always start the year off with the One Fine Day wedding show in Sydney. It’s where we get to showcase our wedding styling to newly engaged couples. The vendors on display are stunning and go to so much effort that you can’t help but be impressed.
I normally start thinking about the show in December. What kind of look do I want to create and are there any new products I have in mind. This year it was my chance to make our own ‘easy to use’ floral chandelier – an idea that had been residing in my brain for many months and would be a perfect addition to our hire range. With this as my design centre piece, I could create layers from there.
The style of the stand came from an image I saw in Home & Garden magazine over Christmas. It have a lovely freshness about it that I wanted to re-create in a style that was more ‘wedding’. I also loved the way the paint was layered in the styling.
I became obsessed with textured paint. Then a stunning piece of work by artist Emily Jeffords jumped at me from good old Instatgram and the colour palette was born.
With that done, it was time to think about the detail. What sets Rainy Sunday apart as wedding stylists are the creative ways we add detail. Those details that brings the whole style together.
For this wedding show styling it came down to three things. The hand-painted textured napkin and table cloth edges, the etched wood place cards and the canopy of flowers. Simple things that unified the final look.
