We are so excited to bring you the wedding of Gena and Tony today! If you are a regular reader of Hello May magazine you would of spotted these two on the pages of issue four. Photographed by the fabulous Lara Hotz, this has to be one of the brightest, funnest, most energy filled weddings we have ever laid eyes on!

Gena tells us herself and Tony formed the perfect team. “We had so much fun planning the wedding together and were a great complement to each other – me taking more of the creative direction and Tony working through the operations and logistics to make things happen”.

“I am colour obsessed and Tony is happy to go along for the ride, so we wanted to have a big party filled with lots of happiness, confetti, flowers, glitter and pom poms.” We think it’s safe to say they succeeded on that front! With the barn of the Sydney Polo Club as a rustic backdrop, every inch of space was turned to an array of rainbow hues through a huge DIY undertaking and the help of an event manager and some seriously out there floral creations from our friends at The Sisters!

“We cut and hot glued over 1200 colourful ribbons for decorations on chairs, as well as a giant version as a backdrop. With the help of my creative friends, we made a batch of playful party hats bedecked in gemstones, fluoro pipe cleaners, pom poms and sequins. Our chuppah (the Jewish canopy under which we were married) was put together using an arrangement of tissue paper honeycomb shapes (including ice creams) as well as the tissue paper garlands and a calico roof. Our kitchen was also transformed into a soup kitchen – literally! We emptied and cleaned 30L of limited edition Andy Warhol Campbell’s Tomato Soup cans to use as vases.”

Meanwhile crayons were wrapped as placeholders, brown paper bags of almonds were made for favours, handwritten signs and seating plans were made from secondhand bits and pieces, and as a final touch Gena, a jeweller, handmade some resin crayons for buttonholes – a reference to a green crayon hair clip Gena wore in her hair the night Tony first noticed her.

This wasn’t the only sentimental touch on the night. “In Jewish tradition as the brides reaches the groom she circles the groom seven times to symbolise them becoming a partnership – it was a beautiful and spiritual moment that we’ll both always remember,” says Gena. Our mates from The White Tree were on hand to film the whole shebang and you can check out the video here.
