Bianca and Luke knew they’d found the perfect spot for their vintage-meets-industrial wedding when they came across the lofty setting of Perth’s Flour Factory. The converted 100-year-old flour mill with its inner city location, crisp white walls and soaring ceilings offered a unique setting for their day, captured by CJ Williams Photography.

With a love of soft, whimsical florals and vintage styling, Bianca had some clear ideas when it came to the direction their wedding would take. She handed the reins over to The Butcher, the Baker, the Stylist & Creator to pull it all together and was delighted with the result. “Jess did an exceptional job of styling and taking care of everything on the day, ensuring it all ran without a hitch.”

A couple of very special touches were added courtesy of a groom who wasn’t afraid to get his DIY on. Luke, a plumber by trade, created a ceremony arbour of copper pipes and spray-painted copper toolboxes to use as a wishing well.

Bianca’s advice to couples is to take the time to figure out how to incorporate their personalities into the details of their big day. “Don’t rush into planning your wedding as soon as you get engaged. Take some time (if you can) to buy some wedding magazines, browse blogs, start a Pinterest board and figure out exactly what you both like – not just what’s on trend. You want the day to be a reflection of the both of you, not just a visual masterpiece.

Bianca chose the ‘Felicia’ gown by Sally Eagle with its delicate lace jacket from Perth bridal boutique Through the White Door which she discovered on Instagram. "Vicky was so lovely and easy going and the whole process felt seamless and effortless,” says Bianca. Rose & Bud created Bianca’s dreamy floral crown and bouquet to complete her boho look.

Bianca was lucky to have two very special men in her life escort her down the aisle. “One of my favourite memories was walking down the aisle which was just a surreal moment with my stepdad on one arm and my dad on the other.”

Jess from The Butcher, the Baker, the Stylist & Creator used a mix of hire items from Pretty Willow, The Turtle and the Pelican, Curio Warehouse and Hire Society with lighting by Micktric Events to create a look which incorporated the vintage elements Bianca loves with a slightly industrial edge, a nod to the history of the venue.

One of Bianca’s favourite details of the day was the custom favours made by Whispering Metalworks. “Kelly did the most fantastic job. He made 120 spoons which were all hand stamped and unique with different shapes and intricate designs on the handles. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more fitting favour for our boho/vintage wedding.”
