We recently travelled to Melbourne to launch our debut wedding planner and notebook and given it’s called ‘The Little Book of Let’s Get Shit Done’ we thought what better way to celebrate than with some of our fave business women who ‘Get shit done’ on a daily basis.
One of Melbourne’s premier wedding venues, Rupert on Rupert in Collingwood hosted us for the day and all we can say is wow! The venue, food and staff are just next level awesome. We’re still talking about the Aperol Spritz cocktails, Twice Cooked Pork Belly and their signature dessert – Goats Curd Cheese Cake with Honey Quince Compote and Hazelnut Kataifi. With venue, furniture, food and alcohol all tied up into one handy package we can see why so many couples are keen to host their wedding in this magical space!
Of course the venue was further brought to life by all round creative genius Shonel from Nomad Styling, arguably one of the go-to wedding stylists in Victoria if not Australia and the lovely Gina from Georgie Boy Flowers – these two talented souls worked hand in hand to create a literal wonderland with bees wax vases and sculpted candles from Tony Assness, candles from Queen Bee Candles, precious stones from Our Satellite Hearts, linen napkins and cutlery from Event Art in Geelong and table cloths from Simmons Linen Hire along with (of course!) some seriously show stopping floral arrangements.
Of course our guests we’re treated with swoon worthy goodie bags to-boot. Inside the Polly Baker woven market bag guests found their very own copy of our linen bound wedding planner and notebook (which comes in your choice of Forest, Blush or Taupe) along with Krystle Knight Rose Quartz Face Massage Rollers, a beautiful candle from Peppermint Grove with their name engraved into the lid for that extra special touch, a six pack of Go-To Transformazing Sheet Masks and a jar of honey from those legends at Wedding Honey. Our go-to for edible favours that your guests will actually enjoy!
Of course no one would of known about our fabulous event with out the help of The Little Press who created the most stunning gold foil letter pressed invitations on handmade paper stock. It really set a beautiful tone for the event that followed.
A big thank you also has to go to Elsa Campbell Photography who captured every hilarious moment (including that time Lucy set her place card on fire!) Regular readers of Hello May will recognise Elsa’s work (pick up issue 21 here) and know we can never recommend her highly enough. The girl never misses a beat.
All in all we’re so grateful to the amazing women who came along to celebrate our debut wedding planner and notebook. You can shop yours now over on our online store. Or perhaps you’ll pick one up for an engaged friend. Either way – what colour will you choose?
