In the new summer issue 17, on sale now, we were thrilled to get offered to opportunity to run the gorgeous wedding of the even more gorgeous Suzie Willks & Nick O'Halloran. Married in front of 170 guests on the 21 August this year in a marquee on the banks of the Ornamental Lake in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, Suzie and Nick's celebration was warm, colourful and love filled. Stylists extrodinaire A Lavish Affair created a simply breathtaking space filled with flowers, candles and topped off with a grand chandelier from Harry the Hirer.
A note from the stylist:
"The brief - a warm and inviting 'feels like home' setting. After the ceremony, the space converted into a luxutious French-style lounge. A vintage chandelier hung over seating areas set amongst an abundance of gorgeous florals, candles and framed family photographs. Soft neutral pieces were enhanced by the bride's choice of vivid colour florals"
Suzie's amazing gown was designed for her by the very talented Jane Hill with the photography by Blumenthal Photography.
A note from the photographer:
"Suzie and Nick are such a beautiful couple, it is hard to imagine we would have achieved anything but beautiful photographs. The attention to detail put into the styling ensured every shot had a consistent colour palette and a point of interest. The brilliant, bright colours looked just fantastic and photographed so well"
