Decked out in Turkish rugs and and vintage wares, Pine Groves in Sydney’s Centennial Park was an utterly enchanting spot for Josh and Ronnie’s shabby chic ceremony. These babes met biking around the beautiful park-lands and Josh popped the question beneath the trees, so it was only fitting that they tie the knot here too, and who better than Lara Hotz capture it all?
Ronnie stirred some serious style envy in her designer threads – a chic Calvin Klein shift dress paired with Stuart Weitzman shoes and YSL bling. But this bride’s favourite accessory of the day was the delicate white handkerchief that has been passed through the women in her family for 100 years. Talk about ‘something old’!
Josh’s classic black suit was especially tailored by good mate and Sydney based designer Brent Wilson. Taking comfort to a whole new level, this stylish groom paired his suit with his favourite Adidas Superstars, and we say lucky sport luxe is a thing!
It was an intimate affair and Ronnie and Josh felt it was important that every aspect of the day reflected them completely. With that in mind, these self-confessed foodies chose their favourite restaurant, Buon Ricordo, for the reception, treating their guests to a to-die-for degustation lunch then relocating to Bondi Icebergs for some kick-on cocktails.
Turns out photography isn’t Lara Hotz’ only talent, and Ronnie can testify, “Lara was the perfect person. She organized the whole day and had vision to style the ceremony and reception.” She Designs wove it all together in stunning fashion, and based on their combined efforts, they might just be our new dream team.
With a vintage, shabby chic forest vibe for the ceremony and a decadently romantic botanical feel at the reception, we couldn’t be more in love with their vision. Turkish rugs, tables laden with luscious fruits and flowers by Jardine Botanic and a rich colour palette surrounding these sweethearts made for the most luxe atmosphere imaginable, Adidas and all!
