I'm not a huge fan of the stock-standard bridal fair, usually held in some sort of unwelcoming convention centre with starkly decorated stalls and cheesy branding so it was refreshing to head along to One Fine Day in Alexandria, Sydney today and be inspired with an alternative view to the typical white wedding.
The whole feel of the day was romantic, vintage-luxe with an emphasis on bespoke, homemade products and clever design.
One Fine Day as a whole definitely shares the tea-drinking, op-shopping aesthetic of Frankie Magazine and blends it nicely with the personalised Luxe of The Lane - which I htink is the new direction of weddings. Gone are the days of the stock-standard wedding in a function venue with a Senior for a marriage celebrant and a DJwho's travelled time from the 70s to keep your wedding groovy.
It's all about people's weddings actually reflecting who they are and how they live their day-to-day lives.
I know a couple who were recently married in Kangaroo Valley and the groom (as a carpenter) built each and every table for the guests on the day with the bride decorating each table individually. Such a personal and lovely way for your guests to really feel like you are letting them have a glimpse inside your relationship.
