Nouba recently headed west to hang with some of our fave Perth wedding creatives for an intimate evening at Fremantle’s Stackwood Hall. The unstoppable Flights of Fancy by Kristy headed one heck of a styling team to help us put on an incredible night that (in our humble opinion) won’t be forgotten in a hurry! A big thanks to the lovely Carly of CJ Williams Photography for documenting it so beautifully.
With contemporary copper furniture by Event Artillery and Micktric Events’ dramatic pendant lighting, the new warehouse venue was transformed into a modern yet intimate setting. Lounge areas styled by Pretty Willow softened the industrial space while abundant greenery and blooms by Fox & Rabbit added layers of colour and texture. Hand-lettered Moleskines by the talented Paige Tuzée were gifted to each guest for the evening’s note-taking.
Kicking off cocktail hour with espresso martinis and berry mojitos, the crew from The Crafty Barman ensured guests were well hydrated whilst listening to the unique grooves of Filtered Sound. For the wine lovers, Vinomofo provided a generous selection of their finest tipples, perfectly paired with incredible eats from our favourite Perth food trucks – Soul Provider and Comida do Sul. For those with a sweeter tooth, dessert queen Sukar provided a mouth-watering grazing spread, complete with the prettiest dessert canapés, spiced fruits, nuts and cheeses.
But the evening wasn’t all about amazing food and drinks (though admittedly a large part). Joining us to share some of their professional wisdom in a series of short talks were some of WA’s most beloved wedding vendors. Flights of Fancy imparted some invaluable advice on juggling a day job with a bourgeoning business and still having a life; Comida do Sul shared the joys and challenges of a husband-wife operation; modern bridal pioneers Lola Varma explored the importance of staying true to your brand; Fox & Rabbit give us some equally practical and hilarious advice on understanding your worth; and (with a healthy peppering of colourful language) photographer Jenna Mason shared the importance of networking and generally giving less F’s.
We were so humbled by the passion and enthusiasm of all our partners, speakers and guests. A heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone involved, with an extra big hug to our girl on the ground who made it all possible – Kristy of Flights of Fancy. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!
