Back in January 2021 we had the absolute pleasure in styling Alyssha and Matt’s Southern Highland’s wedding at Bendooley Estate.
When I first met with Alyssha and Matt we were right at the beginning of our infamous lockdown in 2020. Jumping off the zoom call I couldn’t wipe the grin off of my face. I could feel their excitement and warmth right through my computer screen and it was these exact moments that encouraged and motivated myself and the team to stay positive, because what was on the other side would be nothing short of amazing. And that it was!
One of my final questions I love to ask my couples as we conclude our styling consultation is ‘what is the most important piece to your wedding day puzzle’. Let it be the food, entertainment, flowers, signage etc. Alyssha and Matt mentioned that that they wanted to create space where no single person was not up on the dance floor by the end of the night (… oh and the espresso martinis too!)
With all of that in mind, the couple did have a very clear and distinct styling direction that they wanted to embark on. We chatted about soft linen elements, a neon sign, blush florals with dried palms and a hint of black within the mix.
There were three significant planning suppliers that were a very important asset to their wedding styling and that was Moira Hughes Couture who designed and produced Alyssha’s extraordinary wedding gown, Lucie Wedding Photographer who has an inspiring eye for photography, capturing every delicate and romantic detail of Alyssha and Matt’s wedding day and of course Bendooley Estate the wedding venue creating an atmosphere of utmost elegance.
