Laura + Ben The Triffid, Brisbane QLD

Laura and Ben’s big day was one achingly cool celebration. Their design brief came directly from brief heaven; take two iconic Brisbane venues (neither traditional wedding spaces) pair that with a Pinterest board that’s bursting with travel, music, design inspo (not a single wedding reference) then add two chilled human beings who trust what you do and are keen to push the boundaries – winning!

Powerhouse’s stunning sky high concrete walls were the perfect backdrop for the ceremony. Crisp white bentwood chairs were placed in a semi circle to create an intimate setting. We lined the aisle with a thick runner of lush foliage and pampas grass that continued up into an asymmetrical free standing frame.

Laura and Ben’s local live music venue, The Triffid was completely transformed for the evening. On arrival guests were invited to grab a keepsake from the fully stocked merch stand complete with L + B mugs, t-shirts, posters and caps!

The feature welcome sign was a free standing blush rendered wall with brushed copper laser cut letters that extended out through the wild greenery.
A mix of grey concrete and blush bricks were layered on the guest tables with moody, hand painted florals dripping over, black dinner candles added a hint of romance.

In true ‘muso’ spirit, we knew the stage design had to be a feature. Custom designed artwork inspired by Laura’s many pins of abstract, dripping paint designs were printed on three 5m long canvas banners and were the backdrop to the neon centrepiece that read ‘You Me Oui’. We then framed this massive stage with two epic walls of wild foliage and branches.

Hats off to Laura and Ben who didn’t let the distance between Brisbane and Melbourne get in the way of our love affair. We love our road trips and this one will forever be one of our faves!

Bec Judd’s ‘non-baby-shower’, baby shower

Our love for Bec Judd, her growing brood (double trouble on the way) and her awesome briefs grows stronger with every collaboration… this time, the brief was to “create a “non-baby-shower, baby shower… something out of the box” (music to our creative and slightly tone deaf ears).

So, in honour of the two little dudes about to make their mark on the family and their home, we took over their house for the day (thanks team Judd) and stripped back the pink and powdery and injected a palette of blues, charcoals and greys.

Then we conjured up a crazy overflowing floral + foliage arrangement on her dining table; starting with painted black foliage through to fresh greens and matte whites.
The monochrome cake by Jo at Splendid Servings was our cherry on top, but the absolute piece de résistance was the black and white balloon installations (of epic proportions).

We kinda let our current balloon obsession get the better of us on this one, lucky we had Sarah and her team over at Belle Balloons make this design a reality!

Giant balloons started from the floor of the pool and exploded 4 metres up from the pool. Yeah, so we went a little cray-cray.

We also worked alongside some other super talented folk; Dann Event Hire for the beautiful contemporary furniture, Adairs for the plush cushions, Safari Living for the sophisticated accessories, Sweet Mickie for the cute as quote cookies and of course, Green Street Juices to wash all them cookies down!
