BIGGEST WEDDINGS CELEBRATED

AMONGST THE GARDEN

AN ODE TO NATURE WEDDING

For the love of a PARTY! Big thinking goes into the small details of every experience and this event was a wonderful collision of beauty, fun and flowers. Fluid and unstructured beds of wildflowers were dotted about the space, reflecting the abundance of love and explosion of fun. As dinner concluded, twinkling lights (hidden within the florals) lit up the dancefloor in a most romantic way. Life and love were celebrated in explosions of colour, cushions and canapés.

SET WITHIN THE VINES

A WINERY WEDDING

Pour yourself a glass of wine friends, because this one you’re going to want to feel like you’re there celebrating too.

The idyllic location for this wedding was a privately-owned winery, nestled in the rolling hills of the Mornington Peninsula, surrounded by picturesque vineyards and all-round breathtaking views and romantic vibes.

Vows were exchanged with a picture-perfect backdrop of vineyards and undulating countryside. Outdoors on a warm day, no detail was spared, and guests were offered hand fans, parasols and fashionable wide-brim hats to keep cool while the couple tied the knot.

The reception dinner styling was elegant and simplistically refined to complement the delicate native splendour of the property and winery region. Neutral timber tables were accented with luscious green foliage, soft floral centrepieces and beautiful organic shaped crockery from The Design Depot. The menu too paid homage to the uninterrupted beauty of the surroundings and showcased delicate flavours and local produce.

As the sun set on the vineyard, romantic commemoration and celebration was in the air as guests danced long into the night under the stars.

CARPARK LUXE

AN UNUSUAL LOCATION FOR A WEDDING

(AN UNSUSPECTED SETTING FOR A WEDDING)

Every so often a brave client comes along who isn’t afraid of doing something slightly mad.

On this occasion we wanted something completely unique to celebrate the wedding of a gorgeous New York couple. We missioned to find the most unusual space to host the event, looking at country homes, out of town galleries, and other venues far and wide – yet nothing felt quite right.

One day, we stumbled across a very grotty looking car park. Over 5-floors of an old Victorian building, it had vaulted windows overlooking the CBD, raw wooden floors and amazing cast iron pillars. Our eyes saw past the grit and we started to see something beautiful, something magical, and something totally out of the ordinary. To our luck, so did the client.

We decided to use two floors, one for a dramatic candlelit ceremony, and the other for wining, dining and entertaining.  As the building was weathered, windows needed to be re-installed, entry doors and walls built to create zones, toilets, kitchens, lighting, carpeting inserted and of course furnishings and decorative elements.

As interior design was a passion for the happy couple, we went all out developing a colour palate and choosing textures and tones to create the mood. We worked with Dutch Australian artist Joost. Using candles, soft lighting, and wooden installations with spring blossom, he curated a twilight ceremony. The raw urban feeling of the car park mixed with the delicate romance of the blossom and the result was something that felt eclectic, romantic, and very intimate.As an ode to the couples NYC life we transformed the entraining level into a Soho style loft/apartment where the feeling was more like having your mates over for a party than a formal dinner. An open kitchen was built with chefs cooking sharing food plates for guests seated at bar stools. A sofa area allowed guest to chill whilst waiters served cocktails from roving carts, a main bar pumped as a small restaurant had gussets sit down to dine before getting back up and onto the floor to dance the night away.
It really was a magical night. For us, the most important part of our work is something that cannot ever be translated via web or social media – it’s the amazing sense of warmth and love that fills a room, and the magnetic energy of great friends sharing moments. Most of all, it’s the memories that we’ve created that last a life time – long after The Big Group team have cleaned up and left the building.

ONCE UPON A TIME

A WHIMSICAL WEDDING

Hidden within the lush green walls of a stunning private home, the ceremony location set the tone for this magical wedding. Neutral tones and accents of green, this setup showcased real, natural beauty. 

For the reception dinner, a short drive away, The Showgrounds are transformed into a secret garden.

Inspired by the sea of green that is Central Park, as well as wild rose gardens, the perfect scene is set for a night of surprise, whimsical glamour and excitement. Overhead flies a sea of roses, encompassing guests in a field of upside-down flowers, with chandeliers piercing through and adding that touch of twinkle.

Cecelia Fox’s floral played the most integral part in this wedding, bringing with it the perfect combination of wild, feminine, textural and seemingly-ever-existing.
