Rustic Lilac Wedding of Michelle & Lance

We had heaps of fun styling our first wedding of 2013 a few weeks ago.

It was held at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat which is about 1.5 hours drive from the Gold Coast.  It is an absolutely STUNNING venue and as the name suggests, is nestled amongst some of Queensland’s beautiful Lamington National Park.  There are many different accommodation options, including luxury mountain chalets with uninterrupted views of the surrounding mountains.  It is here that the Lost World Day Spa and Conference Centre is located, with a large lawn area and horizon pool that teeters on the mountains.  Swimming in this pool is an experience….you feel like you are in the middle of The Land Before Time.

The conference room is a great space, with a feature wall decorated with rainforest inspired wallpaper which sets the mood for the room.  It was here that we had the pleasure of styling Michelle and Lance’s rustic wedding with lilac accents.

Conference chairs were swathed in white satin and decorated with our signature hessian chair bows.  Matching hessian table runners ran down the centre of the tables and centrepieces were jars brimming with Lisianthus in various shades of purple.  Our Lolly Buffet was a hit, displayed on an old wooden drinks cart, and our stacked suitcase wishing well was the perfect place for guests to deposit their cards.  The finishing touches was some light purple lighting, to wash the room with colour and create a fun and festive atmosphere (All of these items available for hire from Sugar & Spice Events)

It was a perfect wedding to start the year, topped off by the friendly and efficient staff at O’Reilly’s….they are the best!

We’re looking forward to sharing many, many more with you as the year progresses.
