Instructions:
1. Fold three coffee filters in half to make a crease down the center.

2. Create a ball of tissue paper out of one of the tissue sheets.

3. Take the same color and cover the ball. Twist the bottom to look like a lollipop.

5. After stapling the center, carefully lift each layer one by one.

To create the floral arch, simply use a hot glue gun to adhere the flowers to each other in your desired shape. Feel free to intersperse paper cupcake liners as well — straight out of their containers — for some added texture. You can also dye the paper flowers to break up the whiteness. Once your arch is fully shaped, use heavy duty fishing line to hang from the ceiling or from screws.

“Photography so fresh you’ll want to slap it.”

In love wedding photographers with our suitcases packed for adventures. We specialize in personality driven portraiture and emotional storytelling.

Our number one goal on a wedding day is to show truth. We want the vulnerable honest imperfect and gritty real-life stuff. Ugly crying from how stinking happy you are to be married. We like messy hair and un-fluffed wedding dresses with dirt on the bottom, undone ties and tipsy wedding guests. Bring it.

From the stylists, Sweet Sunday Events: I don’t know about you, but we are stoked that Spring is just around the corner! Inspired by the colors of the season, we created a pretty and soft backdrop with subtle pops of pastels. Consisting of coffee filters and cupcake liners, the backdrop was the perfect frame for the Bride and Groom. The table was set with colorful and fun paper goods from The Stationery Bakery, while a cupcake liner mobile hanging from above. Cheers, here’s to Spring!

We didn’t pick someone else’s wedding that we loved, or copy something out of a magazine. The styling was basically the contents of our house, put out in our favourite part of the world! Also, its surprising how much impact your wedding can have on the environment if you let it, so keeping that it mind, we kept it small, used recycled and second hand things and tried to make everything we could ourselves.

Favorite memory (from Ash): I can’t pick one, the whole day was too magical! I love how everything turned out so perfectly, despite things changing and going ‘wrong’. It was exactly what we wanted, and more. Walking down the hill with Dad by my side and looking out over at all the people I love most down in the gully, but Sol still being hidden by the giant Karri tree. That’s definitely a keeper.

Favorite memory (from Sol): Watching Return of the Jedi with my best man. Yoda’s wisdom definitely helped prepare me for the most important day of my life. That and the moment I saw my future wife walking towards me; all the stresses and difficulties of the preparation disappeared and nothing was sweeter than the knowledge that I would be sharing the rest of my life with her.

Take your time planning, there’s no rush to get married! Enjoy the process, but don’t forget what it is you’re actually working towards; the marriage of you and the one you will be with forever. And do whatever you can to sleep the night before the big day!
