Overlooking the glistening ocean from the five star rooftop view of the newly refurbished InterContinental Sydney Double Bay, an intimate crowd gathered to celebrate the re-launch of a pioneer in the industry – Bells n Whistles by Jennifer Kennedy. As the sun set over Sydney, the wedding industry enjoyed a VIP cocktail party and joined Bells n Whistles in the celebration of their re-launch.

Upon the rooftop patio, guests were not only treated to a spectacular view of the harbor, there was also an array of gourmet canapés as prepared by the Intercontinental chefs. With a selection including bruschetta, varieties of arancini, pork belly and grilled squid – each was more delicious than the next. A decadent example of how a partnership between two Industry powerhouses is one of refined elegance and luxury.

Once guests had arrived and enjoyed a champagne moment in the beautiful surroundings, Ms. Kennedy addressed the audience in a beautiful striped chocolate gown by Carla Zampatti. Detailing the heart and soul of the company she has lovingly built, we were taken through the history of a wedding company that really does offer their clients “All the Bells and Whistles.” After 9 successful years styling, planning and executing premium weddings for brides everywhere, Bells n Whistles shared their exciting new offerings with the guests.

Not only was their sleek rebranding unveiled which represents their premium services, Jennifer shared two new offerings which cement the “Best of Both worlds” philosophy of the business. Destination Weddings was first to be unveiled; a unique offering allowing couples to marry in luxury destinations such as exclusive venues across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. With tailored packages that have been tried and tested by Ms. Kennedy herself, couples can now have their dream destination wedding with complete confidence in their location and suppliers. Quite literally the best of both worlds!

During the event, guests were also privy to learning about a creative studio that Bells n Whistles are opening before the year’s end. Set to be the first of its kind in Australia, this new studio offers couples the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the complete wedding styling experience. Not only will couples be able to see styling designs and creative workshops, it will be inspiration galore and a wonderful chance for couples to work with an abundance of industry professionals in the one place.

Bells n Whistles pride themselves on their innovation in the wedding industry and with these new developments; they definitely won’t be slowing down anytime soon!
