Summer weddings in Australia are so much fun as this creative shoot at Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel shows! Styled by Lisa Kelly Creative is packed with ideas for Summer weddings. From the beautiful addition of pineapples and pears, the semi naked wedding cake, the candles that glimmer and glow and the lush textures that embody the relaxed, light feeling of a Summer wedding!

Lisa Kelly Creative teamed up with  photographer Milque Photography & Films, cake designer All Things Sweet By Carissa , florist Art Of The Flower, calligrapher Written By Hand and added flameless candles from Love & Protect to style Watson’s Bay Boutique Hotel up for a Summer wedding celebration.

Lisa tells, “Working with fresh white blooms and greenery the whole installation had to have an essence of Summer that Watson’s Bay, being harbour side is renowned for.”

Guests are greeted by a welcome sign by Written By Hand, surrounded by the glow of Love & Protect  gold and white flameless candles and plenty of nods to Summer – driftwood, old glass buoys in nets and a simple piece of greenery with white blooms.

Guests are greeted with fresh green pears tied with a calligraphy name tag by Written By Hand. A small handwritten thank you note adorns the napkin, tied with a deep green leaf.

Vessels were filled with lemons and limes and surrounded by gold candles from Love & Protect to surround the semi naked cake from All Things Sweet By Carissa.

The chairs of the most important guests were replaced with cane ones. Each adorned with plenty of greenery and white flowers and a wooden sign denoting the new married title.

    I love the pears as the guest gift/ place cards! Its a very summery and fun idea. A great way to personalize your wedding with a unique yet not too expensive detail!
