We chat with Kellie Martin of Affections Wedding & Event Hire on all things event styling How did you begin in the event and hire business? I wanted to provide a personalised service to brides and grooms where I was able to help couples create their dream day! Have you noticed any trends recently and if so, what are they? Rustic and vintage styling is very popular at the moment, which adds a romantic feel to any day. What is special about your event styling? From our first meeting to the day of your wedding, I hope to make your dream wedding day come true. I always give 110 per cent so that I can offer couples exceptional service. What kind of weddings have you been involved with in the past? From intimate weddings to large ones, there’s such diversity in what couples want from their day, so I try to cater to all types of weddings — large and small. Is there a particularly special wedding that you have styled recently? All our weddings are special. The union of two families is a really incredible and emotional thing and I always feel special to be involved. What do brides need to have before they come to you? Colours and venues are a great starting point. How can couples get an idea of what you do? We have a showroom based in the Hunter Valley where we can put designs together. Or, alternatively, our website is a good place to start. What is your price range? Depending on what sort of styling the couple wants, we can cater to all budgets. We have catered to many budgets in the past, from $800 to $20,000. With your industry expertise, what advice do you have for soon-to-be-weds? There is no need to stress on your wedding day. The last thing you want on the day is to be rushing around decorating your wedding venue. Affections will liaise with your venue so when you arrive all that is left to do is celebrate.

Why You Cant Go Past a Classic Vera Wang Gown

A classically elegant wedding with a contemporary twist Couple: Lisa & Richard Location: Museum of Contemporary Art, The Rocks Sydney While Lisa was travelling in South America, Richard sent her some love quotes written by Khalil Gibran. At the end of the quotes he wrote “and there is one more quote to come but that will have to wait til later...” Two years later, Richard asked Lisa to read the book containing her quotes. When she turned the page to read her final quote, she saw a note written by Richard: “Marry me?” Lisa wore a strapless Vera Wang gown from Helen Rodrigues, with a fitted bodice, cream sash, and voluptuous tulle skirt. A colour theme of ivory and cream was given a striking splash of midnight blue, echoed in the bridesmaids’ strapless, floor-length dresses. Lisa’s Oscar de la Renta shoes took her from aisle to dance floor in style. After a traditional ceremony at St Mary’s North Sydney, the couple and their 150 guests enjoyed a reception at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The menu was a highlight, with contemporary Australian cuisine and a buffet of traditional Italian and Lebanese sweets. The couple’s first dance was to Frank Sinatra’s “It Had to Be You”.
