Simone & Brendan's Wedding - 23rd March 2011

Simone + Brendan // Film Clip from Eldorado Productions on Vimeo.

What a beautiful couple & a wonderful evening! 

On the 23rd March 2011, at Bramleigh Receptions a gorgeous couple by the name of Simone & Brendan tied the knot in front of 40 friends & family members. This was a night where myself & the fantastic network group (that I am apart of) Melbourne Wedding Connections, came together and put this wedding together.
We as a group invited over 150 bride's & groom's to be (that didnt know Simone & Brendan) be apart to witness & watch how a wedding unfolds from there ceremony to the cocktail reception. It was sensational, a happy & excited groom, a beautiful & glamorous bride & one romantic night.

All of us in the Melbourne Wedding Connections group got together about 6 months ago, and planned this special day. We only had 7 meetings in total as a group, and 1 meeting with the bride & groom each ... and just look at how awesome the day unfolded.

Simone & Brendan were extremely relaxed throughout the process and trusted us all with decisions & ideas we passed by them.

I was to design & theme their ceremony setup & cocktail reception, which you will see in the video above & photos below. My ideas came with a vibrant mint green from the greens colours in the bouquet & the setting of Bramleigh Receptions and the raspberry pink tied in with the bridesmaids dresses. It was perfect :)

I just wanted to thank Brendan & Simone for allowing us to be apart of their special day, and to also allow us as a group to share our skills with other potential clients in the future.

Thanks also goes to the group at Melbourne Wedding Connection -

Wedding Open Days & Exhibitions

Its funny but when an open day or exhibition comes up, or if I am asked to participate in one...I think to myself AWESOME! .... Colour, Concept & Creativity!!! The 3 "C" words that make the event fun for me. I get to play with all these beautiful ideas that have been bouncing in my mind for weeks.
Last month we did 2 open days for 2 venues, The Centre Ivanhoe & Rydges Bell City. Both a huge success & proud moment. We did all the linen arrangements for both, along with different centrepieces for different budgets, sizes & themes. See below ...

The Centre Ivanhoe - 4th, 5th & 6th Feb 2011
How stunning is the ivory designer scrunchy chair covers, very art deco with The Centre Ivanhoe.
