Real Wedding: Midsummer Night Dream In A Secret Garden
Laura and Dylan’s wedding saw their guests transported between exquisite venues into a magical secret garden.
The wedding ceremony was held in the grandest of Sydney’s churches – St Mary’s Cathedral.
Drawing inspiration from a Midsummer Night’s Dream, their reception was dreamy and romantic with some modern and bold twists reflecting their creativity and individuality.
The grooms men wore grey tailored suits and began the morning with a shave in a vintage barber shop. The bridesmaids wore coral-toned, delicate floor-length dresses and bouquets of dahlias and peach roses.
Laura was embellished from head-to-toe in an ivory silk and french corded gown, with lace bodice and layers of beading. She wore a crystal and pearl headpiece complete with cathedral-length veil.
Laura works as a freelance stylist and designer for The Styling Branch so we knew she had something fabulous planned for her own day. Dylan and Laura’s intimate reception was in absolute seclusion out on Scotland Island. Guests arrived by boat and climbed the sandstone stairs to a magical garden full of fairy lights.
Their reception was ethereal; woodland tablescapes with moss, scattered tea lights, mason jars and flowers, with a canopy of Edison lights overhead. Their wedding was intimate, romantic and magical for all who were there.
