This intimate wedding, packed with DIY details, is unsurprisingly the work of two designers. Melody and Marco (graphic and interior designers) planned their Perth wedding all the way from Singapore, a task that required some careful planning and lots of help from loved ones.
Choosing the venue remotely was the first hurdle, but the couple had some pretty clear ideas of what they were after. Melody tells me “I was into the whole vintage country look while Marco wanted an industrial rustic theme, so when we saw the shed at Brookside Vineyard, we knew it was the perfect choice for us.”
Once the venue was decided, Marco was in charge of coordinating the overseas vendors, while Melody got stuck into her long list of DIY projects. With the help of her sister (and a few online tutorials), Melody handmade and packaged little petal soap bars for favours, created her own bouquet and flower crown, designed the invitations and stationery and made all the decorations, including the streamer backdrop, hanging pompoms, heart garlands and signage.
The wedding itself was an intimate, family affair with about 25 guests. The couple don’t often get to spend time with their families, and both agreed that simply hanging out with their loved ones was the best part of their day. Melody particularly loved their sibling photo session with Still Love Photography, who tell me this emotional day was one of their favourite weddings.
“Not only were Melody and Marco so lovely, their family so welcoming, and their DIY details so beautiful; it was one of the most heartfelt weddings we’ve ever attended. Weddings like this make us feel like we’re not even working – they’re so relaxing and fun, and are the reason that we love to do what we do.”
