Sculptural Florals.

A few frames that stopped us in a heartbeat, created by wedding by flower favorites Prunella. Captured by Beck Rocchi in The George Ballroom we love the wild romance and rambling beauty of each sculptural arrangement, where blooms in fuchsia and magenta entwine around vines as they climb up arbors and cascade to the floor.

Prunella’s top tip for wedding florals? Curation. "While Pinterest and Instagram are fantastic tools for generating ideas and becoming inspired, don’t try and cram every concept you like into your day.  Edit your ideas and let your chosen team make suggestions on how you can create the most individual, cohesive, stylish affair possible."

Mediterranean Melbourne Rooftop.

Framed by sweeping city views on one of Melbourne’s most coveted rooftops, our latest venue discovery has us dreaming of vintage martinis and Cuban cigars, of long nights spent revelling in the moonlight. Siglo, just one of Spring Street Events' impressive list of venues, is our go-to for classic glamour infused with Mediterranean style. Think moody interiors opening onto a tiled terrace, where guests perch on chic rattan chairs while overlooking the gothic spires of St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the structural beauty of Parliament House.

Transportive Melbourne Caterers.

When it comes to Melbourne caterers... actually when it comes to any caterer we've worked with globally on any event, Food & Desire sit high at the top of our list. With their reputation for innovative dishes, seasonal flavors and beautiful plating, they came highly recommended for our Anna Sheffield Celestine event. And they wildly surpassed any expectation.

We're particular when it comes to the aesthetics of an event, but Food & Desire took our catering brief to a whole new level with high expecations of their own, combing over every tiny detail of presentation (down to sourcing the most beautiful marble dishes for our dessert bar) and creating one of the most exquisite cocktail menus we've sampled, proving in an instant why their client list consists of the likes of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Tiffany & Co. 

Known for their palatable flavours that spark conversation and elevate moods, and food inspired by intrepid travels abroad, Food & Desire create dishes infused with a nomadic sense of wonder, transporting guests to hidden laneways of Paris or the vibrant corners of Barcelona... see more about their bespoke services on the Food & Desire website

Cinematic Frames.

Boldly emotive, cinematically captured frames that paint with light and shade, we love the work of Ritual Union. A Melbourne based duo comprised of photographer and cinematographer, they bring a seamless consistency to weddings. Their work is defined by clarity and precision, by the capturing of those fleeting moments in between; the gentle tremble of nervous hands and the undulating folds of a dress, the meeting of eyes communicating words left unsaid. 

See their full portfolio on the Ritual Union website.

Melbourne's Artful Caterers.

 As stylists, event aesthetics extend down to the details of your menu. We’re always looking for caterers who completely understand the art of cohesive catering (and get excited by and passionately involved with your creative brief). One of our favorites for artful catering is Melbourne based Fred & Ginger, who effortlessly interpret visual cues of a venue and decor mood boards to design exquisite bespoke dishes using colour, texture and perfumed ingredients to add the finishing touches to an event.

With a focus on sustainability, their food is a celebration of seasonal produce, fresh palettes and innovative flavours. To see the full summer menu, or to get in touch, see the Fred & Ginger website

The Flower Dispensary Masterclass.

Whimsical blooms in dreamy hues spilled over table tops, foraged foliage suspended from the ceiling... we’re lusting over these shots of the latest workshop from one of our favourite Melbourne florists, The Flower Dispensary.  

Drawing cues from nature, we love the Flower Dispensary’s aesthetic, where peonies, roses, freesias and delphiniums intertwine into creations that are arftul and dramatic yet mirror the effortless formation of nature in wildly cascading shapes (the key to wedding floral installations to ensure they don't look contrived.)
