BOA STYLE - CHEESE WHEEL WEDDING CAKE

1 June 2016

Love is cheesy and so are these fabulous cakes! Looking for that special and unique addition to your rustic, country or boho celebration? Then its time to toss tradition aside and get on the bandwagon of cheese wheel wedding cakes. You will need at least 3 layers for it to look like a traditional tiered wedding cake and also to balance flavours. Appeal to your guest’s savoury side with delicious local and/or imported cheeses…

Decorated with beautiful flowers or fruit, the “cheese cake” can be made to suit any wedding décor perfectly. The cheese wedding cake can be deconstructed and laid out on a cheese buffet, allowing guests to help themselves or it can be cut up and served on individual platters to guests at their table with trimmings of pickled or dried fruit, dips and jam.

BOA STYLE - WOOD

5 May 2016

There are so many options when it comes to décor and styling of shabby chic and rustic charm weddings, but one thing remains consistent, the essential detail that reclaimed wooden accents give. Wood can be incorporated in many ways to your celebration; a ceremony arch perhaps, or even welcome wedding signs, table centrepieces or even as a backdrop. Take a look at all the ways you can include the beauty of nature into your nuptials…

Instead of utilising wooden slabs on your centrepieces, why not place the wedding reception food or desserts on them to add that rustic charm. Customize a salvaged piece of wood with the text of your choice and include that in your décor – whether it is a welcome sign or seating chart.

BOA STYLE - COUNTRY GLAM

12 April 2016

It’s the barn wedding redefined – if there were ever a theme that captured the essence of rusticity and romance, a country glam soiree would be it!

We’re talking candles and chandeliers, white drapery and crystal, twinkle lights and sequins…all sitting pretty amongst the backdrop of a rustic barn or tin shed! Peruse over all the pettiness...

WEDDING COLOUR STYLE - AUTUMN BLUES

21 March 2016

Inspired by the bluey-greys of an autumn storm, the prettiest palette of slate, grey and neutrals come together perfectly for a chic city celebration full of Parisian flair. The cool colours hint at an air of decadence, especially when mixed with bronze and brown shades to add warmth; these colours are the epitome of chic, so think elegant and opulent decor with chandeliers, mixed metals and lashings of lace for your dress.

To make this palette look pretty rather than cold, the key is to layer the shades rather than focusing on each colour separately. Make use of a range of fabrics to do this, which will also add a beautiful texture to proceedings. A Place setting with wooden chargers atop linen and ornate vintage cutlery wrapped with a pretty silk bow is the exact look for that vintage chic style.

REAL WEDDING - ALICIA + LUKE

2 September 2015

THE COUPLE: Alicia + Luke

GUESTS:65

THE STYLE: Luke and I chose a vintage country themed wedding. Both living outside the major city and loving anything with a vintage retro feel, our guests continually told us it reflected our style.

THE DRESS: I was looking for a knee length vintage feel, something different but still traditional white. Apart from those requirements I was open to just about anything, knowing that something would eventually jump out at me. My gown was everything I wanted; knee length, round neck, capped sleeves and made completely out of sequins!

THE CEREMONY:A friend of my mother’s dropped in conversation that his daughter married on a block of land he owned out the back of Normanville and he kindly offered it to Luke and I. Driving out to such a beautiful country side, and pulling into this stunning vacant block surrounded by forestry was just magical. We did not look at any other venues after seeing it. There were numerous non-traditional aspects to our wedding. Luke and I decided not to have a wedding party for starters. Also, Luke and I met at the venue before the guests arrived and I did not walk down an aisle, instead we walked together to the spot we chose to read our vows. I think it’s important to do what you and your partner wish to do, if you want something non traditional then do it! Especially if it means you’ll be happier and more comfortable.

THE RECEPTION:Luke and I could not decide on a reception venue, taking into consideration we wanted this wedding to be relaxing, we decided to have everything in the one place.

THE DECOR: Most of our decor was collected over time from op shops and antique stores. We found some amazing pieces like crates, tables, vases, and a ten pin bowling set. Luke and I also had a vintage gumball machine filled with lollies, which was a hit with the kids! With such incredible scenery around us, we seemed to utilise it without knowing. Luke and I married in front of a big stump with beautiful ivy growing over it, which my sister-in-law decorated with vases filled with flowers. We scattered wine barrels from local wineries throughout the block for guests’ convenience. We also had parasols and fans for guests, and hired a marvellous castle shaped marquee.

THE FLOWERS: My bouquet had a mixture of lisianthus, roses, everlasting daisies, gypsophila, and different foliage and ferns.

PHOTOGRAPHER: When Luke and I went to meet Karalee she was so down to earth and had a genuine understanding of what we were after in a photographer. On the day she was just magnificent and I feel she really made our wedding special. When we received our photos back they were exactly what we had wished for and more! Luke and I were after someone who understood the kind of people we were, someone who could work well with us to achieve the result we wanted. We were not after glitzy and glamorous, just natural and real.

14 August 2015

The soft neutral + blush tones of the lush Peony flower make it the perfect bridal bloom all year around.

COLOURS - MAUVE AND OLIVE'S RUSTIC REALM

2 December 2014

Olive and mauve compliment each other in this palette, lending itself to a rustic affair. Feminine and vintage at the same time, this scheme looks best with fauna and organic textures. Homemade jars of pitted olives and beautiful mauve, blackberry infused macaroons for wedding favours... A white canvas offers a clean base for olive and mauve to play off each other, resembling a weekend away in a cottage with your beau; it's romantic, and homely, like mums best apple pie.

This palette is one for ages... mauve and olive - a timeless and stylish combination. We adore the romanticism and effortlessly chic nature of this colour pairing.

COLOURS - BURLAP AND LACE

28 November 2014

It's burlap, hessian or canvased material... what ever tickles your little descriptive fancy. A super cool, easily accessible and underrated texture which we think looks amazing with lace. A palette doesn't always just consist of colours but also textures. Textures can come in the form of material and/or a particular mixture of colours and tones... Lace is a popular texture to work with, and it's super versatile. Predominantly in white or cream, paired with any colour, a unique scheme and vibe is created. Take lace and black - chic, sophisticate, sultry and moody... or lace and pale pink - so feminine, pretty, romantic and soft.

This palette combines the harshness and organic qualities or burlap with the femininity of lace. Like chalk and cheese, but we think it works oh so well!

LOCATION BRIDE - VINEYARD

16 October 2014

Red, white, rose, sparkling ... what's your flavour? We are blessed with some of the best wine country Australia has to offer; the views, the fresh air and the clear night skies.

Utilise this beauty on your wedding day, celebrating with friends amongst rolling hills, ripe vines and plush estates. We think vineyards are the perfect canvas for your wedding day, no matter what your style.



Opt for either a rustic, country vibe or allude to a more classic and chic occasion with lots of white and cream touches.




The photography opportunities are endless in a location such as wine country. We think this bridesmaid shot is so unique and special...




End the night celebrating with open fires, candles, starry skies and of course, plenty of wine.

GORGEOUS GARDEN GALLERY

10 October 2014

It's a balmy evening, Sauv Blanc in hand and acoustic tunes fill the air, shoes are kicked off and soft grass is at your toes; this could be your wedding reception. Garden weddings are unique and special; not to mention how fabulous your photos will be.



Have fun decorating with bright colours focusing on tones found in the garden; pinks, yellows, blues and greens are ideal.



Play on the garden theme and be creative with decor like this wheelbarrow with seeds for guests to take or an area for the ladies to kick off their heels and have a dance.



Try to remember to constantly refer back to your wedding theme or colour palette during the planning process. This will make for a polished event that flows, from invite, to cake and the final send off.




Create a whimsical event for guests... lanterns, fairy lights and tulle are perfect for this.

AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK WEDDING

16 January 2014

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie! Oi, Oi, Oi! Australia Day is fast approaching and to celebrate we've put together some gorgeous Aussie Outback wedding inspiration for those who are proud of their fair dinkum Aussie roots! An Australian wedding is a fabulous way to pay homage to your heritage, while making guests feel relaxed and comfy among the familiar rustic Aussie style. A little bit outback, a little bit country, a little bit rustic and very, very Australian...

An Aussie outback theme calls upon natural and rustic elements to really highlight the beauty of our wider sunburnt country or the endless vineyards in South Australia (less outback, more chic). Native Australia flora is the way to go; we're so lucky to have an abundance of beautiful native flowers at our fingertips, so incorporate them into your bouquets and decor for an authentic Aussie feel.

Don't forget the Australian food!! Swap the traditional wedding cake in favour of the iconic Aussie pavlova, which is also a light and fresh choice for the hot Australian heat. Lamington sticks and pies and pasties in restored crates are chic and rustic but are still as Aussie as it gets.

REAL WEDDING - CARLA AND WARWICK

13 August 2013

Carla and Warwick’s country vintage charm wedding theme was inspired by visiting many old and beautiful towns throughout Europe and England, complemented beautifully by the picturesque Longview Vineyards. Carla describes, “Longview has a charming beauty and lovely rustic palette, which was exactly what we were looking for.” The pair, who met in Sydney, say that they thoroughly enjoyed the entire day and that there were so many memorable moments that they will always cherish.

Carla and Warwick hired Americana chairs and apothecary beverage servers from Sash Events to decorate the ceremony and purchased traditional ‘quattro stagioni’ preserving jars, which they hung from the aisle chairs with string and filled with white hydrangeas. Carla’s mother’s rustic chairs were placed at the signing table and fit in wonderfully with the country theme.

Carla wore a stunning off-white mermaid style gown with a cathedral train. The creation had a strapless sweetheart neckline with a soft tulle criss-cross overlay. The rest of the dress was lace, and perfectly fitted to the knee before flaring out to the floor. Her wedding earrings were a lovely gift from Warwick, which he made by their jeweller to match Carla’s rings. The bride’s bouquet brooch was ‘something borrowed’ from her nanna, her mother-in-law gave her a beautiful lace handkerchief, which is a family heirloom that has been passed down to all the women in the family since the 1920s and she found her hairpiece at Vintage Market on Grote Street.

The newlyweds held their reception at Longview because it had the right blend of style, size and a great reputation for its food and wine. The table centrepieces were low-height flowers placed in a collection of lovely vintage vases. Their table names identified their favourite travel destinations, which the couple handmade and stamped with fun travel stamps.

Guest were treated to a beautiful and personal two-tier wedding cake with fresh flowers between each layer. The bottom was Carla’s grandmother’s fruitcake recipe and the top was a gluten-free chocolate mud cake with raspberry. The bomboniere was a practical gift; Carla’s grandmother and mother made delicious apricot jam that was put in cute little jars.

It took Nicholas three proposals before Cara finally said yes – each time she thought he was joking! Finally, he proposed when the couple were entertaining a group of friends, presenting Cara with a ring in front of everybody! Nicholas and Cara did not have a distinct theme in mind when they set about planning their wedding, however, it was all brought together with beautiful vintage elements. They wanted their day to be a simple, fun and relaxed party for their guests and themselves – something they definitely achieved!

Cara made her own centrepieces for the reception filled with various shells and candles, inspired by the newlywed’s love for the beach. Guests were treated to a simple and tasty croquembouche in place of your traditional wedding cake and took home compilation CDs as personalised bomboniere. “We loved every moment” reflects Cara, “from saying our vows to dancing the night away with family and friends…Nick and I like to do things our way without following trends or traditions. We didn’t set out to make the wedding anything else but what we love and enjoy.

Willunga Hill provided the gorgeous backdrop for the wedding, which fused nature with bold man-made features of rustic tin. In order to let the beautiful surroundings speak for themselves, the ceremony was decorated merely with a scattering of rose petals. The warm sun and greenery of the trees provided a natural glow to the happy atmosphere.

Immortalised in the wedding album are the huge smiles on Nicholas and Cara’s faces, evident in almost all of the photos…photographer Kerin Burford did a fabulous job of capturing incredibly happy, natural and comfortable shots. It seems not a grin was missed on film.

Aside from marrying Nicholas, Cara’s beautiful dress was another reason for her to smile. The simple, tasteful and unique 1940’s-esque creation suited her relaxed style and she looked the picture of effortless elegance. Her diamante encrusted shoes were from Ivory Soul Bridal Shoes, who Cara says were ‘so helpful and even arranged the bridesmaids’ shoes to be dyed so I did not have to worry’. Her Aunty Teresa made their beautiful crystal bracelets and as for the bridesmaid outfits - Cara’s mum and Aunty Teresa made those too! The dresses were made from a vintage Vogue pattern Cara found from America in a deep maroon fabric, a colour perfectly suited to the rustic styling.

Cara and her bridesmaids carried large bouquets of native flowers in the same, rich colours as the bridesmaid dresses. Gorgeous, heavy and stunning, the flowers were anything but your typical bridal bouquet! ‘Anything but typical’ could be a makeshift theme for the couple’s wedding, which included many points of difference. Nicholas wore a vintage suit and suspenders in a warm brown, an unusual colour choice that perfectly complemented his sun-bleached hair and smiling brown eyes.

RUSTIC RENDEZVOUS

10 July 2013

We love the organic vibe of rustic weddings, the incorporation of nature into the wedding decor and the basic hues are so beautiful. There are so many fabulous DIY opportunities when putting together a rustic wedding and they're a fantastic way to give your special day a really personal touch.


rustic wedding - brides of adelaide magazine - rustic wedding - brides of adelaide magazine - rustic wedding - brides of adelaide magazine - rustic wedding - brides of adelaide magazine -

Rustic weddings can be cute, whimsical or elegant depending on the elements you team with your styling. Natural decor is teamed with man-made to create a beautiful harmonious style. We love these little tree stump centrepieces - carve your names in the stumps surrounded by a love heart for a little high-schools sweetheart vibe. Vintage milk bottles or jars can be used to hold various flowers and wooden crates are a simple, yet effective way to gather the jars in.

Carry on the theme of the tree stumps by using smaller ones as place card holders. Cut a thin slice in small branches so that you can fit a place card in them. We also love these hessian napkins and cutlery, held simply together with twine but still glamorous thanks to the addition of a diamante adornment. Convert old furniture into decor additions - old barrels can be filled with ice to hold drinks or desserts and an old vanity can become a serving station.

REAL WEDDING - KRISTIN & SIMON

28 May 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - real wedding - halloween

A long way from the humble streets of Adelaide, Kristin and Simon’s romance was ignited on Hollywood Boulevard when they were both living in LA! The night they met Simon went back to Kristin’s house and they talked for hours…and from that point on she says he was very persistent (although he might say otherwise!). His determination was rewarded when the pair tied the knot in an amazingly unique ceremony back in SA last year. Their vibrant wedding was infused with a Halloween vibe - bright pumpkins and a palette of purple and burnt oranges.

In homage to their American romance, the couple’s wedding was one hundred percent US and straight from their hearts. They thought it would be great to do an autumn theme because in America that time of year is ‘just so beautiful’. They also thought it would be unique, as in Australia spring starts in October, however in America that is when autumn starts – there were faux autumn leaves and pumpkins everywhere!

Their scenic ceremony location was directly in front of their reception marquee on Simon’s sister Emily and brother-in-law Jason’s land at Eudunda. “We were looking for a beautiful location that had not been used before and something with a view to die for when Jason took us to a spot he knew of. The kangaroos bounced away as we drove up to the spot and so Simon and I declared, ‘this is it!’ Who says you can’t infuse a little Australia into an American wedding? Their reception was in a marquee on the same property, allowing them to party into the night without restrictions!

Kristin wore a beautiful strapless ivory and champagne corset gown with lace and sequins from Jenny & Jerry's Bridal House. "It was so beautiful and everything I wanted in a gown; it was vintage and the colour of it was just stunning" she gushed. In true tradition, she added something blue and special underneath her gown, which was the names of all her loved ones who had passed away. A lovely and personal touch. The tradition ended there - Kristin wore custom Converse sneakers instead of heels with "Mrs Kuehl" embroidered on them...very cool!

The individual ceremony decor was provided by Budget Party Hire, including the marquee, aisle runner, chairs, tables and linen - they had everything Simon and Kristin needed! Simon expertly built the doors and wooden arch, painted custom jars and filled them with candle lights and decorated with pumpkins and faux autumn leaves! The autumn / halloween theme was evident throughout the styling. Kristin had a lovely autumn coloured bouquet in a beautiful oranges and browns, berries, vines and pretty lace wrapped around the base holding it all together. She added a heart shaped photo of her uncle, father and herself when she was younger for sentimental value. Ky Luu from B Captured created lasting memories with his incredible unique photography; the couple definitely have a wedding album unlike any other!

THE SECRET GARDEN

15 April 2013

This whimsical styling concept is inspired by the classic novel ‘The Secret Garden’ and the magic that stirs within the high garden walls. A hidden world of fanciful delights and beautiful overgrown flora is the enchanted setting for a delightful mystical wedding ceremony and reception. “And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.” - Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.

Briefly transport guests to a serene environment away from the hustle and bustle of the world, where they can laugh and dance and celebrate your love amidst the tranquillity of a secret garden. Rustic elements suit this styling concept perfectly; spend time before your wedding collecting weathered mismatched furniture, vintage crockery and wooden boxes for flowers and umbrellas.

Bring out the natural beauty of your hidden garden with a variety of simple D.I.Y projects. Homemade wooden arrows and signs point your guests in the right direction with excited anticipation of what will follow, as the garden is a secret after all. Glass jars filled with flower arrangements picked by family and friends and candles and chandeliers hung from the branches of trees create a truly enchanted space.

REAL WEDDING - ANA AND JOSHUA

9 April 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding

A simple mistake ended up defining the future for Ana and Joshua, who met when they both misread their university timetables and ended up in the wrong class. The pair laughed off their embarrassment before getting a coffee at the café to get to know each other. Years later, Josh asked the big question during a fairy-tale proposal in New York that would exceed any little girl’s dream.

brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding

A whimsical wedding captured the essence of the Adelaide Hills for Ana and Joshua, who wanted their guests to feel like they were being transported somewhere special. When the couple saw the Longview Winery for the first time they had already put down a deposit on another wedding venue, but they completely fell in love and just had to change. Its rustic qualities, inspiring scenery and beautifully intimate feel made the Longview Winery the perfect place to host Ana and Joshua’s big day.

Together, Ana and Joshua built a tree made from real branches and foliage in the middle of their reception. In order to make guests feel as though they were somewhere truly serene and special they decorated the tree with fairy lights, birdcages and vintage lampshades and dotted gorgeous little animal statues around the reception for an enchanted forest feel. Special centrepieces consisting of twisted mallee wood, little nests with birds, vases, freesias, bark and tea-lights provided a whimsical ambiance to the styling.

Ana looked naturally radiant in a fishtail gown from Rapsimo. Beautiful imported Italian lace decorated the bodice and sweetheart neckline and Rapsimo ensured they completed the styling with a stunning pair of sling back heels. The vibrant pink bridesmaid dresses were from Bridal on Pulteney and Joshua and his groomsmen looked very handsome in Joseph Uzumcu suits. Bouquets of mostly native flowers highlighted beauty of the Adelaide Hills, including molucca balm pods, lilies, orchids, dodda vine, parrot tulips, mini gym and freesias.

Guests were treated to a raspberry cream sponge cake decorated with little birds and vine ornaments and Ana and Joshua organised for a tree to be planted on behalf of every guest through Trees of Life as bomboniere.

REAL WEDDING - LACHLAN AND CARISSA

3 April 2013

outback wedding - brides of adelaide magazine

It was farm life that brought Locky and Carissa together; she was visiting Australia for six months to work on the Silos and Locky was a farmer. Carissa extended her stay for a year to be with Locky before moving to Australia permanently. It was just before harvest when the pair went for a drive out to one of Locky’s blocks to ‘check the crop’ and as they were doing so he got down on one knee and asked Carissa to marry him!

A mixture of bush and vintage was the theme for the beautiful country wedding, which was held at their ‘back block’ forty kilometres west of Ceduna. Earthy tones made up the colour palette, as the couple wanted the entire day to feel in sync with the paddock. Many personal rustic elements fused the indoors with the county surroundings. Weathered pieces of wood were made into signs that read ‘I Do’ and ‘Newly Weds’ and empty jars made for simple candle holders.

As the couple chose to have a cocktail wedding, they incorporated wine barrels into the décor so that people were able to set down their drinks and food. The barrels featured different vases filled with bark and twigs to keep the theme consistent and the tea-light candles for a little extra romantic lighting. Four gorgeous wicker balls hung from the center of the roof with lights in them, as did long strips of fabric to make the room feel cosy. The end result was a truly wonderful and personal environment for the guest to enjoy.

The understated fashion reflected the relaxed, country vibe of the day. The groom and his groomsmen wore their Peter Shearer shirts untucked and opted to leave their ties at home. Carissa looked beautiful in a casual version of vintage glamour, with a simple silhouette and silk material. The true beauty of her gown was in the stunning beading; sparkling cap sleeves and a low back adorned with unique detailing.

Their country wedding album was captured in a variety of locations on their farms. They had photos taken in paddocks with a vintage couch, in shearing sheds and amongst a fallen down farmhouse. A wedding that would make any Australian bumpkin proud.
