We were super fortunate to be invited to participate in a gorgeous “Industrial Chic” styled shoot at Brisbane’s Lightspace a couple of weeks ago, and the shoot has just been published in all its romantically-lit gorgeousness in the latest edition of Brisbane Wedding Weekly!
The shot was conceptualised by wedding stylist and planner Kasey Twidale from Fashionable Society Events and photographer Nicole Barralet from Nicole Barralet Photography . We, of course, supplied the beautiful wooden stationery pieces and signs; the gorgeous flowers were designed and supplied by Once Upon a Petal; the twinkling arbour was supplied by Adorn Event Hire; the stunning cakes were supplied by Gillian Bell Cake; hair and make magic was worked by the talented Karla from Blissful Makeup; Samantha Townend was our lovely celebrant; and real-life husband and wife Pru and Jason were our models.
Lightspace, where the magic took place, is an amazingly versatile industrial-style place for weddings. It’s essentially a blank canvas: large, open space, dark, unpatterned floors, give you plenty of flexibility when it comes to creating your floor plan. High ceilings with their tall rafters set the scene for incredible lighting to be installed, or leave you with the option to drape fabric to create a jaw-dropping effect.
Stylist Kasey used candles enclosed in glass bulbs to line the aisle and to dot around the bridal table, while centrepieces were kept low and long, creating a green and floral runner dotted with gold votives. The industrial theme, rich in metals and wood, was continued with copper charger plates topped with wooden menus (designed by us!). We chose to debut our white printing method in this shoot, as we love the screen-print look that white printing creates on the wood. It’s bold, different, and incredibly striking against the natural grain of the wood!
The lovely Samantha Townend, real-life marriage celebrant, played the role of our model celebrant very well! (She does have plenty of practice, after all!)
The rustic-chic cake by Gillian Bell featured gorgeous copper accents to further incorporate the rich, earth colour scheme of this styled wedding. Floral embellishments were the perfect finishing touches to this elegant yet simple cake. Everything was then set atop a vintage barrel: the perfect industrial-style prop!
Another fun installation that can be incorporated into your winter wedding is a hot chocolate bar! Kasey styled hers using old, rustic crates, and displayed everything you need to create the perfect hot chocolate (milk, white and dark chocolate buds, marshmallows, cinnamon sticks) on this stand.
And yes! Our wooden stationery. This suite was custom designed for this particular shoot and, as mentioned above, also featured the debut of our white printing. Previously, if we’d want to print with white, we’d have to consider screen printing. Screen printing, although beautiful and versatile, is an expensive process–especially for short runs.
Since we can digitally print with white now, it means that we’ve been able to get rid of the expensive screen print setup fees! It’s fantastic. And the white print looks amazingly crisp against the warm grain of the wood.
We have named this suite “Bandiera” (Italian for “flag” or “banner”), and the wood features look awesome when paired with one of our lusciously textured stocks (linen–like the monogram tag pictured here–or felt) and boldly coloured envelopes (which we can also print with white). This invitation is available for purchase online, or if you’re interested in the full sets (or elements of), please contact us for a customised quote.
Anyway, enough about us
