When good friend and wedding photographer, Dani Bartlett, got in touch to see if I could help create this beautiful shoot, I was so excited! I've always loved the 60s, 70s and 80s; from the music and fashion to the interior decorating, and even the social and political changes and movements...so to develop a shoot which would pay homage to all things retro was super intriguing and fun. We chose Jackson Square as a blank canvas venue, and used the iconography of the building as a jumping off point.
We used a range of textures and shapes to infuse layers and depths into the styling, and focused in on a colour palette of black, deep green, mustard and orange to create that rock n roll, retro vibe. We utilised hire from Honoured Hire, Jaks Hire and Minty Mary Pea, and Venue Productions hung the most beautiful cane lampshades over the tablescape...which felt super 70s! Carolyn from Sweet Nothings nailed the brief completely with the most beautiful arbour florals, floating around the Halo arch from Honoured Hire,
Valentina and her husband Luis shone as our couple, with Beccy Brooks being the most perfect celebrant for the occasion. The hair and makeup team, Bianca and Gaetana, infused pockets of 60s and 70s hairstyles and make up styles into Beccy and Valentina's looks, which worked perfectly with the modern/retro vibe.
I was so excited to work with some darker colours and bolder shapes for the wedding stationery, and I was absolutely overjoyed with how the suite and menus turned out...the orange crescent moon being my absolute favourite! I also utilised a concertina folded card for the 'wedding details', which was printed on a gorgeous dark green cardstock from Colorplan.
Do you love rock n roll?
