From Scout & Charm...This wedding speaks of a true representation of an chic Australian beach wedding. It wasn't your common beach ceremony on the sand accompanied with Balinese flags or any other "typical" beach decor, that you see so often here, but rather a down to earth, casual and elegant scene set right on the shores of one of the world's most famous and busiest beaches...the iconic Bondi Beach, Sydney Australia.
Heidi was such an easy going bride and placed all of her trust in us. She pretty much gave us free reign on all of the styling elements...We had been given only one requirement from her "I want daisies...all I want is daisies!" And with that in mind we delivered. Everywhere you turned there was daisies...tins of daisies, jars of daisies, daisies upon daisies.
The ceremony was set up on top of the infamous Bondi Icebergs swimming pool with an uninterrupted outlook over Bondi Beach...a view that most people would kill to see once in their lifetime. Her aisle was created by using antique wooden banana boxes from Coffs Harbour adorned with doilies and tea cups filled with daisies. We also had pinwheels made up and placed these in the backs of the chairs which added a unique and whimsical touch to just an ordinary chair cover and sash. Tins of daisies hung on the fence which over looked the ocean and we had a custom flag hung on the flag pole hand made from ribbon, lace and tule. It floated beautifully over the ceremony in the ocean breeze.
The bride looked absolutely stunning in a loose flowing silk and lace gown by Rose and Ruby. Her bridesmaids matched her theme of vintage, feminine, lace and daisies by wearing matching crochet lace dresses and all accompanied by bouquets of daisies.
When you walked into the reception venue, it gave out a warm, whimsical, romantic and dreamy vibe. There were soft fairy lights and vintage floral buntings strung around the room. We had hand decorated old jars using hessian, lace and ribbon and placed them throughout her reception venue. There was also custom made coasters which read "Eat, Drink & be Married" on them along with Heidi and Daniels names and marriage date, a nice personal touch. The room also was also styled to include a chill out area for guests and was made up by using vintage lounge suites and other mismatched vintage furniture.
For the grooms love for lollies, a lolly buffet was created using rolled down sacks and wooden scoops. We had custom made lolly bags made up which read "Love Sweet Love" which also doubled up as a favor for guests.
We hope you enjoy looking through the following photos taken by the amazingly talented brother and sister duo Jane and James Allen as much as we did.
