A graphic designer and skate shop owner, Kelly and Chris are already killing it in the cool department and their middle-of-nowhere wedding was no exception. A secluded Scout Hall in Frenchs Forest (north of Sydney) was ideal for the big outdoor party they had in mind and Studio Something captured these sweethearts – and their beloved pups – making it official!
“We knew straight away that a traditional wedding wasn’t really our style,” Kelly says of their low key venue. “It was in the middle of the bush, quiet and had different areas we could use for the ceremony and reception. It needed a LOT of love, but I could tell immediately that this was exactly what Chris had imagined, and a place that he felt really comfortable in – which was ultimately what mattered most to me.”
The pair are no strangers to a little DIY – both are involved in theatre, which initially meant they’d had their fair share of DIY-ing and would rather have someone else do it for them. Fast forward a few months and Kelly was crafting EVERYTHING, from signs, invitations, the archway and even the flowers! With native greenery courtesy of Mother Nature, the addition of a little lace, balloons and a whole lotta’ sparkle made for a colourful and quirky party.
