Wedding Styling Statement Pieces

Wedding Styling Statement Pieces

Your wedding day is the most important day of your life. If there’s ever a day where you can be extravagant and go over the top, if it’s in your budget, this is the day.

There are so many aspects of the wedding décor that you have to consider, which can make it difficult to create your perfect day. One way to ensure that your décor stands out, is to have the perfect statement piece. A piece that is a focal point for your guests. A piece that encapsulates the union between you and your loved one.

These days, wedding arches and arbours are being used in wedding ceremonies in both traditional and non traditional venues. In both indoor and outdoor settings. These pieces can transform the venue and act as the perfect statement piece to complement your wedding day.

With this being said, we decided to share with you our beloved floral arch and arbour. Two statement pieces that have been used in a variety of weddings and events by our clients, providing the perfect finishing touch to their special day.

1. ARBOUR

We asked our creative director Kerri why she believes the arbour is the perfect addition to your special day. 

Its imposing and eye catching. The lines and curves show beautiful detail. I love the vintage feel of the arbour and it’s ability to suit all settings. My clients have used the arbour as a statement piece in their weddings for either a ceremony,or with seating for a chill out area at a reception,a cake or dessert station to mention just a few.

flowerwallFloral walls are a gorgeous addition to any wedding and can easily be incorporated into your reception or ceremony (or both!). Floral walls can add a pop of colour to your wedding. The natural foliage mixed in with the flowers is a beautiful way of adding greenery. We are seeing a trend in many brides opting to incorporate elements of nature into their wedding.

Elegant Orchard Inspired Wedding Shoot as Featured in Polkadot Bride

 

We recently collaborated with a talented team of Perth wedding creatives to produce a beautiful Orchard Inspired Wedding shoot set up in the Perth hills.

Photographer Peggy Saas tells of the inspiration behind the shoot. “Orchard blossoms in the Perth hills tempt us with the first sign of spring”. The shoot was styled with undertones of pale blue, white and gold which brought upon a classic French feeling.

We had the pleasure of showcasing some of our beautiful French inspired furniture in the shoot. The Floral Louise Chair & the French ‘Ballerina’ Table. Have a look at the results below for yourself. x

CHANDELABRA WEDDINGS AND EVENTS CELEBRATES A 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

CHANDELABRA WEDDINGS AND EVENTS CELEBRATES A 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

We recently celebrated our 10th year in business . How it has changed over the years! Starting up as a tiny little dream of a store that sold beautiful things and gave our customers an experience that wasn’t often ( and still not ) found in many places , we have now grown into a complete wedding and event service. We still have unique beautiful things and we still give our clients an experience when they come in to our showroom with all their own dreams and wishes for their once in a lifetime (dreamt about for years in most cases ) wedding day ! I guess things actually haven’t really changed that much after all!

We were very happy to be joined on the special night by Designer Extraordinaire Jennifer Naglan , the extremely talented owner of Zanzi’s Bridal Couture who showcased some of her amazing bridal gowns just for us!

Thankyou to all our guests (and our lovely models of course) that gathered to help us celebrate. It was a fun night enjoyed by all ,and that went well into the night!

Here are few photos of the night, taken by another creative lady, Stevie Cruz Martin.

Romantic Margaret River Wedding for Hollie & Todd

Romantic Margaret River Wedding for Hollie & Todd

Styling Hollie and Todd’s beautiful romantic Margaret River wedding at Leeuwin Estate was such fun and I am excited to say that it  has just been featured on the Modern Wedding blog!

From the moment I met Hollie when she walked into our showroom with her Mum and Mother in law to be, I knew that family and their love of racing were going to play a big part in Hollie and Todd’s wedding.

Todd, his Dad and the boys arrived in Todd’s dad’s  prize vintage 351 “shaker” after driving it all the way from Perth to the beautiful Leeuwin Estate where the ceremony and reception were held.

Hollie , to the surprise of everyone, arrived astride  “George” a  gorgeous white horse ! We had made a pretty headpiece for George so he looked the part .

In her stunning  gown from Pallas Couture , with the masses of tulle flowing, she looked so beautiful ! Accompanied by her horse’s trainer astride his black horse, they trotted in to the ceremony to meet her captivated groom and wedding  guests .

Anyway as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So have a look at this stunning work by the Wedding Tape.

Weddings: Saving dollars before you save the date!

Weddings: Saving dollars before you save the date!

The euphoria of the engagement sometimes gives way to despair when trying to achieve the dream wedding , yet keep within the budget.

Sometimes this leads to a huge amount of work for an otherwise busy bride and her bridal party. Let alone the stress that infiltrates into all close relationships ( especially the most important one ,)  the happy couple themselves! So after hearing and seeing lots of frazzled brides, I thought I’d share a few tips from “the inside” of the wedding industry.

First up, CHOOSING A  VENUE. Whether your venue is down south, Rottnest, Perth or your own home, make sure you check out the cost of hiring the venue, (or in the case of your own home, if you need marquees , furniture,decorations etc, take into account the delivery and collection costs).

Sometimes venue hire is expensive and they list off all the items included, such as tables, chairs,tablecloths etc, when you’ll find that most venues include all of this as a matter of course! Watch the little extra charges that are sometimes added if you want to  personalise your wedding by using your own chairs, and keep in mind above all , how much time you are allowed by the venue to either have someone set it all up for you or if you are DIY Bride , have a trial run to see how long it takes to set all your little bits and pieces up, put your flowers together etc,  because with time constraints on the day and the potential for something not going quite as it should , time will be very short supply!! Lack of time equals stress!!

You would be much better spending that precious time making yourself beautiful , staying calm enough to enjoy every minute of your day! And it will show on your face, which is most important for photos that will be looked at for years to come! With all that in mind , sometimes what you save in money may mean a lot less time for the important things—– you!! Balance is the key! Next, Tip Number 2  Styling for the DIY Bride.

A Wedding in Full Bloom

A Wedding in Full Bloom

When I first met Holly, she had a long list of items that she wanted included in her ceremony and wedding. Most of which she had seen on her first visit to Chandelabra. I was pleased if not a little surprised, but she said “I love everything in the store (showroom)and I want my wedding to look exactly like this!” She was planning her wedding herself as her fiancé happened to be in the navy , and spent long months at sea. No guesses as to what the main colour scheme was to be then. White of course!! But I must admit the penny didn’t drop until I saw her handsome fiancé  Luke in his crisp white uniform, waiting for Holly at the altar!!  The ceremony was held in Hyde Park Perth, a beautiful setting amongst ancient trees and on the edge of a lake.

The ceremony was complete with a  Robbie William’s wedding  style rose arch with a mix of silk roses and fresh white rose sprays. A beautiful white chaise and french signing table and chairs held the pretty rose cones filled with fresh rose petals handmade by Holly .

A wall of white flowers was the backdrop to the bridal table which , like the guest tables was dressed with beautiful shimmering beaded cloths, fleur de lys vases filled with white roses and a touch of baby’s breath, white candelabras , silver charger plates and stunning table stationery from The Boutique Paper Co in Paddington Sydney. Our french ornate sideboard with the drawers filled with roses completed the picture when it was topped with lolly jars and delicious desserts! An absolute pleasure to create !
