It’s Halloween evening and we’re in the mood for all things spooky. And we could not think of a better feature to share today, than this fresh take on the traditional Halloween colour palette of black and orange.
It was the brainchild of wedding styling & floral studio DUO Events Creative Studio who took their (immense, covetable) talent to bring this rarely seen, but utterly stunning concept to life.
Swan Valley venue Bailey Brewing Co took centre stage. The brand new (opening any time brand new), local loving, modern, family-owned brewery based on the concept of family coming together, of communal dining, gathering around a table and chatting beer, dogs and children running at your feet. It is this casual, relaxed warmth, that the DUO team juxtaposed with the modern, industrial styling for a stunning modern look.
Stylist Erica sharing “We created a balance by using dark materials like perforated metal, smoked glass and dark linen and teamed this with the softness of the florals and the white in the furniture. All the while nesting the design into the existing environment, so ultimately the design just looked like an extension of the venue’s architecture.”
Photographed by Ridhwaan Moolla the inspiration kicked off with black acrylic signage lettered with orange text, advising guests “The Party Starts Now” the invitation leading to a stunning ceremony set up, clad in orange and white blooms, before moving to the reception in an open-air pavilion. It is here where the magic truly happens, atop a wooden dance floor from Perth Dance Floors, Duo created a stunning scene. White chairs set along with a cement topped white table (from Heart Strings Hire + Style) topped with black Hire Society linens.
A black elevated centrepiece a beautiful statement for the orange and white continuation, taking the form of fresh floral pieces, black glassware, marble taper candles set underneath the glorious floral installation and hanging white wire chandeliers. The details – just beautiful. Nestle and Porter tying the look together with stunning gold and orange stationery pieces, and The Cake & I creating a tiered, terrazzo tile-inspired beauty of a wedding cake.
Our model, Rachel Mackin Brown (accompanied by Luke Whelan as our groom) wore a stunning white wedding gown by Jonte Designs, changing into a celebratory gold sequin jumpsuit as the sun began to set. Her hair and makeup – briefed to be fresh and casual, styled by Rachael Forster Makeup Artistry and Emmanuelle Helena Hair Extensions. These two beautifully blended that sense of occasion that one needs for wedding day style, with the easy-going warmth this setting provided.
So as the minutes to Halloween count down, we’re not going to say this inspiration is utterly spooky, but it might just leave you utterly spellbound.
