Pale blue and orange isn’t a color combo we often see in weddings, so it was such a delightful surprise to see it in Liz and Richard’s! They used the color palette so wonderfully that it wasn’t at all overwhelming or tacky.
Now take a stunning backdrop like Lake Como and a bespoke, vintage-inspired dress and you have a truly remarkable wedding. Gaaaah, and that headpiece that Liz was wearing – gorgeous!
Hope these lovely photos from Paperkite Photography inspire some details for your big day too! Enjoy!
The Bride on finding her dress and headpiece: “My dress was bespoke by a young up and coming Sydney based Australian Bridal designer Leah Da Gloria. Because of her, I was able to have the dress of my dreams as she was able to understand my vision and make it happen. My headpiece was a bespoke design by another Sydney based Australian designer Viktoria Novak“.
On choosing Italy: “I have always loved Italy! Our first holiday as a couple was spent in Italy so it just felt like the right place. Plus the scenery is amazing!”
On their DIY elements: “We made the menu cards, the table seating plans, tied the ribbon onto the backs of the chairs, had a stamp made to stamp the wedding date and ‘thank you’ onto our wedding favours, bagged up the wedding favours and pegged them!”
“The groomsmen wore the same as the groom. We wanted a relaxed look for the men so we made them wear the same linen Marks and Spencers suit with the same tie. The small detail that was different was that the groomsmen wore orange socks and the groom wore paisly print orange and blue socks”
On what they gave as wedding favors: “Macarons as they are one of our favourite treats! We got them made to our color scheme and flavours by the sweet department at La Rinascente in Milan”
