In a wedding glitzing with all things golden, crafty duo Stacy and Jason’s vision was to create a lavish “over the top” affair for their guests. Captured by Still Love Photography, the pair brought big bling to life in an event for the ages.
In a divine Maggie Sottero gown and crimson blooms by Fox and Rabbit, Stacy and her sequinned bridesmaids shone with gilded glamour. Unique headpieces by Olive Farm Designs and a gold bow tie for the groom were perfect accessories for the luxe affair. Jason’s handmade timber backdrop set the perfect rustic contrast to the glitz and gold, which culminated in a shower of shimmering confetti when the deed was done!
While the pair’s nuptials were worlds away from day-to-day, Stacy and Jason kept things close to their hearts with their choice of ceremony location. For them, their local church was perfect. “It’s a huge part of our lives, we couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else,” Stacy says.
Tradition gave way to contemporary and the gold theme continued into the industrial setting of the impressive Riverbank Estate. Party goers danced well into the night, but not without a sweet intermission led by the loved-up pair to a small ice-creamery – an addition the bride admits was her favourite part of the day (apart from marrying Jason, of course!).
From playful personal touches to big bright ideas, the couple worked hand-in-hand to bring their day to life – using their unique talents to make the most of the process. “I’m the ideas person, and Jason’s the maker,” says the bride. For every bit of glam she called upon, her groom evened out with a dash of DIY.
While this bride’s every touch might have turned to gold, she advises brides-to-be not to sweat the small stuff. “It will all work out on the day!” she says.
