With lenswoman extraordinaire Tanya Volchanskaya behind the lens, and Melbourne faves Pomp & Splendour on the blooms, Tash and Pete’s chilled-out Collingwood warehouse wedding was destined for greatness. The creative duo played to their strengths to create a day that reflected their personal style and vision, with as much dancing as possible.
As Pete is a graphic designer and photographer, it was a natural decision that he would do the paper goods and signage, while Tanya worked with Pomp & Splendour to fill the space with swoon-worthy flowers and foliage. Taking full advantage of the lofty ceilings, masses of greenery and softly lit chandeliers were suspended, with stunning results. With a strong sustainable ethos, the Pomp team took the utmost care to keep their floral footprint small by forgoing the use of toxic floral foam, composting green waste (after removing all plastic cable ties) and salvaging the timber lattice structures. Kudos.
For Tash and Pete, the search for their ideal venue was short and sweet, as The Craft & Co was the first and only one they viewed. The bride shares, “As soon as we walked into the upstairs space, we just knew it was perfect; the natural light, warehouse-style ceiling, the great food and inner-city location.”
With plenty of dancefloor action on the agenda, a good sugar high was a necessity. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for an epic donut tower from Daniel’s Donuts, the crowning glory of the dessert table.
