"The Promised Space" by Styled By Her

When one of our favorite Sydney wedding stylists was being asked “what else is there?” by brides looking for alternatives to traditional floral covered arches and arbours, Corey was intrigued. And so, came the inspiration behind her latest styled shoot ‘The Promised Space’. Celebrating the raw textures and movements of fabrics in the sea breeze and the natural, undone romance of being by the water, this styled shoot came to life. 

"I had these frames made and fleshed it out with dried palm leaves, foraged black foliage, large brass bells and raw silk ribbon. I also wanted to do something different with the florals so I used only blacks and whites in the arrangements on the carved timber tables at the front of the aisle. I wanted to show brides that even black and white flowers can look soft and romantic and when paired with the white Indian grinder tables, crystal and quartz it can even have soul."

We caught up with Styled By Her to hear their tips for styling by the sea…

1. Check the tide charts

2. Think about the access and the distance to the aisle.

3. Some shade may be necessary depending on the time of the day

4. Take a rake, the beach in all it’s natural beauty usually has debris

An Eclectic Soul: Sourced by Sam

Styling a wedding from beginning to end is a beautiful and creative adventure. It's also a very personal one, and no small task! By far the most amazing, memorable weddings are those that truly, madly, deeply reflect the bride and groom in every way, through every detail. They feel authentic and magical, an extension of the couple themselves.

For all the gypsy and bohemian brides out there, who can imagine their dream day but who are unsure of how to bring it all together, enter Sourced By Sam, our latest wedding stylist (& kindred spirit) addition to The LANE Directory. A gypsy herself, Sam roams the east coast, from Melbourne to Byron Bay and everywhere in between. With a naturally bohemian aesthetic mixed with a dose of rock and roll, Sam will get to know you as a couple and work with you to help execute your own amazing vision (or come up with the vision, if you need a little help in that department!). 

Drawing inspiration from free spirits, dreamers, dancers, gypsies and rockers, Sourced By Sam will help channel the ideas and energy you desire for your day into a beautiful reality. It may manifest as an abundance of lush green foliage in a garden setting, complete with buckets of blooms and cascading flowers, or a salt scented, shoes off, rustically nautical beachside affair - whatever path you choose Sam will ensure it is truly yours. Venue, vendor and prop sourcing, colour themes, styling and all-out on the day co-ordination…consider her the perfect fit for your bohemian style!

Sourced by Sam is located in Sydney, but is available for weddings on the East coast of Australia. Head over to her website for a look through her galleries and to read more about Sam.

A Fresh Approach To A Rustic Reception

For inspiration on how to transform an inside reception venue into an enchanted, rustic space -  have a look at this stunning reception recently styled by NSW based boutique styling service, She Designs.

Created for Sharon & James reception inspired by rustic opulence, we love how She Designs have cleverly created a seamless connection between the inside and out. Proof that you can have a rustic country aesthetic at an indoors venue!

Through mixing natural elements (hanging floral wreaths, vines, log centrepieces and white roses) with decadent chandeliers, crystal tableware and an organic palette, the industrial space ( Simmer on the Bay) has been transformed to exude rustic glamour.

Head over to the She Designs website and blog to see a gallery of their recent weddings & styled shoots!
