Zoë + Emilio Luminare, South Melbourne
The timeless love story of our achingly cool couple Zoë and Emilio was perfectly summed up when we asked them how they met…. ‘ Zoë worked at the pub. Emilio drank at the pub.’ We thought that response, just like them, was brilliant and needed to be up in lights – pronto!
Cut to their Big Day and we were bringing all the sexy, moody vibes necessary for a night of revelry. Turn up the audio on this blog post peeps, it’s all about the sensory experience, starting with the eerie music box tune playing in the elevator up to South Melbourne’s prized rooftop venue, Luminare.
Overgrown greenery and red rose bushes gathered wildly above the dance floor, where decrepit chandeliers tilted and flickered. The table design oozed romance with decadent gold leafing on vases that were overflowing with red roses and discarded petals strewn over the tables.
And then there was that deck, home of the feature bar and tropically adorned lounge pods that were the perfect haven away from the busy dance floor. Guests grabbed a cocktail, melted into the comfy velvet sofas and shared the city views with Mr. Flamingo and Co.
Carly + Simon Carousel, Albert Park
With the lust-worthy Melbourne cityscape backdrop, Carly + Simon exchanged I do’s under the reclaimed steel archway decorated by soft white florals and greenery. After the ceremony, Carousel’s stunning deck was transformed into an alfresco entertaining area, complete with a custom geo-marble bar. Overlooking the serene Albert Park lake, the intimate lounge areas featured cosy couches with pops of marble and gold.
The tablescapes created a simplistic canvas on which marble tiles formed the base for the fresh and contemporary centerpieces. This modern feel continued through the design of the herringbone inspired ceiling installation, adorned with leafy foliage, pops of vibrant florals and crystal cut lighting.
We can’t thank these amazing humans enough for being insanely sweet and for allowing our inner luxe feels to ooze through.
