Sugar Pink Sweet Buffet

Bride + Groom sent over the sweet pink sweet buffet they created in their stall for the Dusk Bridal Fair a few weekends ago in Perth. I thought the little touches could give you great inspiration for your own reception.

I’m going to let Tilopa and Jemma describe their lovely setup!

“We set up a Candy Bar as one our displays and drew inspiration from Amy Atlas in the design! With Candy Bars proving to be so popular at the moment we thought it would be great to show brides + grooms some different ideas on what they might like to do. We used our Apothecary Jars + White Letters that we sell as well as some sweet tooth props! We had so much fun designing the display and we had lots of great feedback.”

“Our ornate birdcages were dotted around the booth, which proved the perfect accompaniment to our gorgeous new guest books we have in store. We’re really excited about these guest books as they look just gorgeous! We’ve had lots of requests over the past few months to find lovely guest books so we’ve worked hard to design a book which we hope will be well received.”

The girls said “Our other main display was a rustic table setting styled using our gorgeous tea light holders that we sell (pretty in pink!) as well as our jars we hire out + our fabulous black Tiffany Chairs. We designed name place tags for each chair which is a service we offer through our store. We had many girls commenting on them as they worked so well with the chairs. We also had a beautiful bouquet of peonies on the table which we sell in store – we love them as they look so real!

Finally our booth wouldn’t have been complete without our beautiful eyelet paper lanterns which were suspended across the booth. The lanterns are such a great inexpensive way to dress up an area and of course they can be used again and again!”

I love how fun filled the photos of Anne-Marie and Brenda’s wedding are. Nothing makes me happier than wedding photos with that “wish you were there” feel!

Anne-Marie wore a dress from Sugar & Spice while her bridesmaids wore gowns from Wayne Cooper. Bouquets of orange roses were put together by a family friend. The groom and his groomsmen wore suits from Roger David with striped ties from TimothyK.

Anne-Marie says “Our photos were taken at Shorncliffe pier.  This particularly meant a lot to us as it is nearby where we’ve bought our first house that we’ve been renovating for the last year.”

Anne-Marie and Brendan celebrated with their guests at Glengariff Historic Estate. They couple loved the history of the venue- after operating for over 100 years as a dairy farm, it evolved into a into a beautiful function area, complete with panoramic views and a vineyard.

With funky wooden cake toppers, the cake had Brendan and Anne-Marie’s names written in calligraphy style  and was made by a family friend. Anne Marie and Brendan made a lot of their own stationery- their engagement invitations, order of service booklets, wishing well cards and thank you notes. They had their wedding invitations made by Tickle Me Invitations.

Anne-Marie says of their first dance “We danced to “True Companion” by Marc Cohn – it was a very ‘interesting’ first dance as it was non-rehearsed and ended up in the groomsmen doing various break dancing moves”. The music to keep guests dancing on the front lawn was provided by friends.

Anne Marie and Brendan

Hello Monday! I thought I make this Monday a little easier for those of us at our desks in front of computers by sharing with you a brand new photographer to Polka Dot Bride (one we hope we will see much more of) with a gorgeous Brisbane wedding!

Anne-Marie and Brendan were married on a gorgeous summers day. Anne-Marie tells their story, “We met in February 2005 at a mutual friends’ 21 birthday party (at a lawn bowls club!).  To be honest we think that it was actually a bit of a set up but it all worked out well in the end.”

Today’s photographer is Feather + Stone Photography.

Anne-Marie & Brendan held their ceremony at Corpus Christi Church in Nundah. It was the same church Anne-Marie attended Sunday School services as a child. It was also where her mother, aunty, sister and Anne-Marie all went to school.
