Vanessa + Sean
'Modern Boheme’ was the style of Vanessa & Sean’s wedding, from ceremony to reception considered detailing were used throughout to curate this look. With a laid back yet stylish ceremony, a modern day alter was designed with textural elements of dried foliage and blooms creating a half circle on the sand where the couple exchanged vows barefoot in front of their friends & family. Paired with laid back bamboo & white fabric bamboo director stools for guests to be seated.
Aligning with the style of the day , Sean rocked a neutral linen suit & Vanessa angelic like in a beautiful white silk dress handmade by her friend with a modest V neckline & scalloped sleeve detailing. Alongside, her bridesmaid in a stunning olive green dress, paired with modern “boheme” bridal bouquets. Vanessa’s bouquet was thoughtfully designed with a fan like appearance utilising the shape of a dried lotus leaf adorned with a white orchid spilling from the centre with the cutest fluffy textured bunny tails.
Following through to reception, detailing was carried through to ensure a cohesiveness, we repurposed the atler pieces at the entrance of the reception venue. Which effortlessly tied into the stunning 4M hanging installation designed above the dancefloor. The colours selected thoughtfully chosen to elevate and compliment the interiors of the venue. The added pops of sprayed gold lotus leafs & brassy vintage candle holders added a luxe element.
Aside from the aesthetics of the day the experience that Ness & Sean wanted their guests to have was that of one big party and to just enjoy themselves surrounded by great food and even better company.
A cocktail style reception was chosen, a more laid back decision with a selection of canapes being offered and dessert station. The Collective really out did themselves, guests were delightfully greeted with a delectable lineup of food choices. Our personal faves the mouth watering bug rolls and mushroom arancini balls with drinks flowing setting the tone for a great night. Did we mention the oyster bar on arrival?
Vanessa & Sean are such a warm loving couple, they both exude kindness and are so loved by their local community. It was actually a very easy process creating their dream day, it was important for them to bring together their special people to celebrate the love they have for one another and their community.
