I always get excited when I see a home grown Australian wedding receiving adoration from an international leading wedding blog such as the wonderful Style Me Pretty. So when I saw this gorgeous vintage inspired Byron Bay Wedding featured on SMP’s Destination blog, I was over the moon. The whole gorgeous, casual and romantic affair is designed by the amazing team formerly known as Poppy Lane and captured by Justin at Bushturkey Studio. With so many beautiful vintage inspired details I’m struggling to name just a few. So in case you missed the SMP feature, I thought I would break down the details, along with a few extra pics from Bushturkey’s blog. Hope you enjoy.
First up, the location of Byron Bay is absolutely stunning. Just add a lovely bride in her gorgeous Johanna Johnson wedding dress and your well on your way to a wedding made in heaven . . .
The outdoor cocktail gathering for guests featured truly personal and creative vintage details including a custom made oyster bar constructed from old country fence palings, monogrammed flagged toothpicks and an old vintage gate with vintage keys for the seating chart. The guests mingled around outdoor tables adorned with vintage doilies and crystal cut vases with pretty mixed blooms, played lawn games and quenched their thirst with refreshing punch.
At dinnertime, guests were led to the romantic marquee reception along a walkway framed with shephard hooks and hanging mason jars filled with flowers.
Each reception table featured a picture of the bride and groom in different poses displaying the table number. The pretty vintage centerpieces included vintage doily runners, a mix match of vases and bottles, and place settings displayed on scrabble tiles. After dinner, the old country hall became the dance venue, complete with fairy lights, floral flag bunting and a yummy dessert buffet.
Don’t you just love all the amazing personalised details! Well, all the handmade goodness including the programs, dessert labels, menus, and place settings were beautifully crafted by Poppy Lane. You did a awesome job girls!
