A palette of dark and broody colors with a heady swirl of different metals blended together is what makes this inspired shoot from Katie Harmsworth Photography. Like LENZO said, it is a departure from their usual shades of pink and we think they executed everything so well. From the ceremony area with divine florals by Raven and the Rose to the cake and dessert table, everything is designed to perfection!

From the event designer, LENZO: We wanted to tap into the mixed metal trend that is seemingly here to stay, and step out of our comfort zone with a slightly dark palette than LENZO’s usual shades of pink. With gorgeous imagery by renowned wedding photographers Love Katie and Sarah and the simplicity of wedding venue Gather and Tailor, it really is something the whole team is proud of.

Since the venue is a classic blank canvas, we went a bit (okay, maybe a lot) over the top with our decorations. Think an abundance of rich florals with pops of gold sprayed greenery from the #QueenOfFlowers Raven and the Rose, that clashed in the best kind of way with opulent gold confetti + feather filled Boutique Balloons. Furniture was kept simple + sophisticated and was to us by the team at Pepper Sprout Hire. They also helped us achieve an extra #SPARKLE, through their strings of twinkling festoon lights. We paired these with The Innocent Owl’s unique caravan bar, where our new best friend The Tender made up some of their famous cocktails.

Now, if you are getting married, LENZO’s fave thing to think about is the FOOD. Yes, we love a good meal here, so you can only imagine the look on our face when Pot + Pan brought out an abundance of deliciousness. Think fluffy king fish burgers, delicious prawns + olives and hearty veggie chips. We already were in a food heaven, but then of course Cake Ink came to the party with #THAT trio of foil cakes (+ matching stationery may we add), that were perfectly complimented by handmade Love Little Chocolates which also doubled as the sweetest of favors!

To add some sparkle to our table + present the already inviting food, we got #LUXE partyware from Ruby Rabbit, golden trinket boxes + candle holders from The Small Things Co and the coolest geometric mirrors from Ikea. We then decked out both the cake table and aisle backdrop with extravagant “You + Me” lettering from Foamtastic Party Decor. We further accessorised the table with some bling from Gold Wedding Hire, making the dining experience even grander.

Our bride Dallas (via Brazen Models) was glammed + glittered thanks to Amelia Webb makeup and hair by Studio 2. We are loving her soft bronze look paired with the #OTT gold foil hair part. We totally are seeing foil hair to be a trend at this year’s races and also makes for a fashion forward bridal look. And those dresses? They are all thanks to Georgia Young Couture – a wedding designer who trust us, is soon to take over the wedding world! Her gowns aren’t only beautiful, but they are so unique and will definitely make you feel like the belle of the ball. We paired these dresses with simple jewellery from Samantha Wills, bold gold earrings from Christie Nicolaides, nude shoes from Bared Footwear + gold shoes from RMK.

For our groom Michael, he was dressed head to toe in Oscar Hunt + Bared Footwear. If we were to get married today, all our soon-to-be hubbies for sure would be in the door Oscar Hunt, as each suit is tailored to perfection and you can’t deny that Michael looks extremely dashing in his get up ?

The pair were also helped down the aisle by the two #CUTEST flower girls. Both Mia and Lilly (via Giant Jnr) dazzled in their Britt Bear dresses and you can tell they loved getting dressed up for the day.

The dotting couple exchanged gifts such as Michael’s Peggy Lane Watch, which makes the perfect pre-wedded present. These were presented in the #OutOfThisWorld Bespoke Baby giftboxes, which you can customise for your hubby-to-be, your bridesmaids + your flower girls. We are loving the copper foil script used on these boxes – we are #OBSESSED!! And what is LENZO’s perfect gift you ask? We always love gifting experiences, so we think providing the happy couple with a photobooth or Instagram printer from Little Pixel box is the perfect idea!
