What Made Our Day Unique
We dreamt of and hoped for an outdoors wedding however, being October, this wasn’t looking very likely and, in the run up to the day, the weather looked bad and it poured with rain hours before the ceremony. But, by the time the ceremony came around, the sky was filled with beautiful sunshine and it was even hot! We were able to have our dream wedding outside by the water – and no-one got stuck in the grass! The day also had a lot of personal involvement from those who are close to us, including a close family friend who is a registrar and conducted our ceremony.
Foliage WeddingThe colour scheme and styling behind Poppy & Ben's beautiful wedding stems from the eucalyptus plant, allowing them to combine their favourite colours - blues and greens - with fabulous foliage décor that is used across so many touchpoints, from the bridal party bouquets and bride's hairpiece, to the ceremony arch, table centres and wedding signage. Even the pool around which their ceremony is staged seems to have taken on a eucalyptus-green/blue hue. It works wonderfully as the iconography to tie everything together without anything feeling too staged or thematic. Stunning.
Inspiration Behind The Styling
The inspiration behind the styling was minimalist chic as the venue really speaks for itself and we wanted the day to be classic rather than focused on a season or theme. The styling was done by Poppy and her mum, who is an artist; she actually painted the table plan for us! A lot of inspiration came from Pinterest and Rock My Wedding, and the vibe of the day ended up being chilled, fun and ridiculously happy with a lot of love and warmth.
