Martinique + Stephen The Joinery, Brisbane
Starting the design process with our clients always begins with the completion of a pretty awesome (well we think so anyway) questionnaire and a collection of inspiration images to get to know our couple’s personalities and style.
Martinique + Stephen’s story was anything but ordinary and with over 1,500 (wowza!) inspiration images of modern architecture, travel pics, fashion snaps, flowers galore and the odd RnB/Beyonce/Jay Z reference we knew we had something juicy to sink our teeth into!
We love creating our magic interstate and this time we had only eyes for Brisbane.
The look for the ceremony was modern and structural yet romantic, held at The Queensland State Library. A dramatic black carpet runner lead to florals of deep burgundy and blush tones pouring over a series of modern black mirrored plinths.
Post ceremony dinner and dancing awaited guests at The Joinery where we shook things up a little with a bold colour palette of blush, fushia, magenta, deep red, black and gold! Sharp, modern finishes of mirror and lighting installations set the tone whilst some seriously epic florals adorned the tables.
Personality is key in our designs so knowing that we had some rnb loverrrrs on our hands we couldn’t help but add a little Biggie Smalls flavour to the mix! A custom “It was all a dream” neon was designed to layer over a ‘smashed mirror’ effect creating some serious attitude behind the bar!
An installation of linear light beams floated throughout the dramatic industrial style ceiling, dripping down behind the dj where guests definitely got the P is for Party memo!
Martinique and Stephen thank you for letting our ideas run wild and letting us be a part of your special day, you were an absolute dream!
