REAL BIJOU BRIDE – LISA & GREG’S BIG DAY WITH HEAPS OF PERSONAL WEDDING TOUCHES
Lisa and Greg are one of the best couples I’ve had the pleasure of working with, so fun loving and hell bent on throwing the best party ever rather than concentrating on the wedding traditions. On this their first anniversary, I wanted to share shots from their big day captured by Babb Photo and some of the many personal wedding touches that I’m sure will inspire other brides and grooms.
For Lisa and Greg it was imperative that every element of the wedding told a story about their relationship, tastes and passions. And by everything, I mean everything from the music to the drink stirrers and everything in between. Lisa is a photographer and printed out hundreds of photos that we used in a variety of ways to create a ‘Story of Us’ timeline to line the wedding aisle, a wall of shame that led to the dance floor and special guest place settings.
The key members of their household missing on the day were their pets but we found these fab gold drink stirrers as a nod to them.
They also wanted to ensure their guests were entertained at all times and it was my job to provide them with as many ideas as possible. We found interactive games, fun dress up items and a giant custom colouring in amongst many other things to create personal wedding touches!
You might recognise groom Greg and his best men – psst… it’s the band Scouting For Girls! So music was another important element which Lisa and Greg customised by forgoing the cheesy DJ and picking their own playlists.
Greg is a huge 007 fan and James Bond influences can be spied (see what I did there!) throughout their wedding decor.
Vintage 007 film posters were used for the table names and various iconic items such as toy pistols and chocolate playing cards were laid out for the guests to play with and enjoy.
Lisa and Greg’s wedding was featured in full on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings so head there for lots more photos and advice from lovely bride Lisa. A big public HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to this awesome pair. Mwah x
