The Air b'n'b of weddings, WedShed, were kind (and smart!) enough to reblog our story about how to handle wedding planning stress - because while it is supposed to be a wonderful exciting time (and it is!), it can also be deeply overwhelming and fraught with issues and people shouting NO YOU CALM DOWN.
Our wedding industry experience in both vintage and retro furniture hire and event design and styling across Melbourne and Victoria, provides us with so much material - plus our creative director and co-founder Kate Forsyth is a twice marrier - so she has done the hard yards TWICE and boy did she do it differently the second time around! Take her advice here and also check out WedShed's features - they have THE BEST LISTING of non-traditional wedding venues that we know you will love! Read the post here.
One the very best wedding blogs - Nouba - showcased the 'colour explosion' wedding shoot that us here at Good Day Rentals designed, styled and co-ordinated. As the event designer and stylist, we went positively crazy - more was certainly more - and getting a bunch of our best pals in the wedding industry involved.
The brief to the vendors was 'be as bold, creative and colourful as a unicorn at a rainbow convention' and bold it was! Custom confetti, dessert lounge, a floral veil, living succulent ring, rainbow balloons and make-up, smoke, laneways and just SO. MUCH. FUN! It was a wedding stylist's dream and the most fun to create! Check out the whole thing here - it's your pinning dream!
Out of our usual vintage wedding realm, we provided some of our most vivid and luscious pieces of vintage and retro furniture for this collaboration between LENZO and Witchery Kids. Our Caramello sofa and Tsarina Wingback chair looked beautiful in one of our favourite venues - the refurbed George Ballroom in St. Kilda, Melbourne. Take a look at the whole shoot here.
Styling heavy weights LENZO teamed up with Le Rose robes to create a wedding brunch shoot to make your bridal party's eyes water. At the totz stunning Campbell Point House and shot by the wonderful Kas Richards, it was a gorgeous day. Check it out! Our vintage brass bar cart was a key piece, along with our pink velvet love seat and arm chair. Our white and gold retro dining chairs looked stunning in the venue which is absolutely flooded with natural light.
WedShed - the Airbnb of wedding venues interviewed our Creative Director and founder, Kate Forsyth about the rise of Pinterest vintage (reproductions and done-to-death things like Mason jars) and how true vintage is a style and not a trend. A must read for all humans, animals and plantlife.
