Kat & Graham’s Epic Wedding at Fairground Follies

Keeping their location a secret until the day of, not even the bridal party knew what Kat and Graham had in store for their Darlinghurst wedding. The stage at Eternity Playhouse saw these sweethearts take on starring roles in their very own love story while the reception at Fairground Follies had everyone living out their childhood fantasy of sneaking into a carnival after hours!

When it came to capturing the fun, Lara Hotz was the woman for the job and her knack for candid camera work and creativity didn’t go unnoticed, “The most incredible person, she made a massive impact on us and our day.” Kat tells us. “She is a master and we will never forget how she influenced and contributed to making our day what it was.”

There’s nothing like a nuanced theme and Kat and Graham’s nuptials were equal parts formality and fun, a decadent day at the carnival with a touch of quirky, something Kat describes as “Relaxed sophistication. Formal, with a pop of personality.”

Kat’s gorge layered A-line gown (courtesy of Personalised Wedding Couture) is the stuff dreams are made of - elegant and princess like with a mega-train for the ceremony, but come reception time, off came the top layer to reveal a cute tea-length strapless gown underneath.

The best thing about having florists for friends? Just ask Kat and Graham, who had their good pals from Poho Flowers on board. “Ed & Jai created the most breathtaking table centres - two 50 seater tables covered in decadent flowers and fruit. Just divine.” Kat tells us.

Sheree of She Designs was responsible for transforming the Fairground Follies warehouse into this magical wonderland. Located in the Antique Mechanical Music Museum, the warehouse came with the carousel and other antiques, but She Designs pulled the entire look together and Kat says “She is a true artist!”
