After working together for seven years, planning their rock star wedding was just another day in the office for artists/photographers/creatives, Kashka and Kennie. Tess Follett was behind the lens for their bold and glittering affair amongst the greenery of Melbourne’s Glasshaus.
Working with celebrant Jessie Belle, the couple crafted a ceremony that reflected their personalities and was fun for everyone. “We had so much fun writing and working alongside Jessie that the ceremony went from the part which I was pretty nervous about, to the part I was most excited about” shares Kashka. Their unique ‘I do’s’ included a sing-along to ‘champagne supernova’, prompt cards so that all their guests could pronounce them husband and wife, and stitching up a mate so he thought he was supposed to have written a speech.
Wanting a venue where they could bring in their own drinks, food and entertainment, Melbourne nursery, Glasshaus, turned out to be the perfect fit. The couple infused the space with their own style, and created a disco jungle party in the process. “We were surrounded by the most beautiful jungle plants with two long tables laid with disco balls, candle lights and a silver animal figurine for each guest.” Happy Camper served up antipastos, pizzas and even the odd dessert pizza, and the guys at Liquid Infusion kept the espresso martinis coming. Glitter makeup artist Shine-Culture had guests shimmering on the dance floor.
