Both graphic designers, Amoni and Paul knew what they wanted from the beginning. “We have always loved Carriageworks, it was the perfect look and feel for us. As designers, we had a clear vision of what we wanted, and we were really excited to use an industrial setting to create our own style, a combination of vintage and rustic with lots of greenery! We also asked all male guests to grow a moustache, and we had a donations box for Movember”, says Amoni who matched their theme in a vintage inspired Rue de Seine blouse and classic bodice and skirt by The Babushka Ballerina.
The bridesmaids dresses on the other hand, we made by Amoni’s family friend while her mother made the bow ties, flower girl dresses and pear shaped cookies (talk about talent!) For Amoni her favourite details however, were the beautiful fresh flowers and food, all of which was beautifully captured by Lucy and Alistair of She Takes Pictures He Makes Films.
“The photos and video are so special. And our good friend fromThe Vintage Stylus spun the best records all night and there was dancing from start to finish, even through dinner”, says Amoni who was pleased that everything had gone according to plan. Well, almost. “We had many overseas friends come over which was wonderful, but one of our friends booked the wrong dates so ended up missing it!”
