For a couple who wanted a magical garden wedding we certainly ended up in a venue that presented an interesting juxtaposition to our theme!
Harnessing the raw industrial backdrop of the Exhibition Hall at Australian Technology Park we decided to create a space that felt as if it had been abandoned to nature, and where a garden had been slowly taking over for years. Working with an amazing team of designers, florists and riggers, we created a forest canopy over the dining space, and tree-like growths on the columns of the space, not to mention an epic canopy of moss and ferns over the ceremony itself.
Careful consideration of the lighting design helped us to take our guests on a journey starting with the ceremony in dappled afternoon sunlight, through twilight for pre dinner drinks, and culminating in a reveal to an enchanted forest clearing with lights twinkling down through the canopy for the party itself. An abundance of wild and hot-house flowers were clustered artfully on the tables, as if freshly gathered only moments earlier.
