EVOCATIVE STYLING AND DESIGN
When it comes to designing the real living experience of your wedding, the things that are important to you form the big picture of you as a couple. How you convey your style can be subtle, from the language and design you use on your stationery to support local small businesses in our chosen destination over wedding gifts.
Creating a place where you feel totally grounded in who you are, when you are at your best does not come from published blog posts it is something that is intrinsic to you who you are. The colours that make you happy, the textures that you like to touch, the sounds that get your attention. These will be the elements will resonate on your wedding day.
I have given my style a list of descriptive phrases – if these phrases resonate with you and feature in your personal make up then I think we are going to have such a strong connection when collaborating on conceptual ideas for your wedding day.
I aim to:
Tease out the bubbling effervescent beauty that infuses and travels
Curate a sharing, soulful and sensory moment in time
Turn up the volume so you feel energised when immersed in your chosen destination, surrounded by those people and things that you LOVE.
Blend the sounds, textures, aromas, tone and special lyrics that make up your history
This is what makes life interesting and motivates us to move forward.
Each aspect of the wedding design will have an association to tangible surroundings, aromas, flavours and textures, subtleties that will bring waves of long lasting memories to take you back to time and place.
Together, we’ll cast off expectations and create a connected experience that is tailor made for you.
MORE THAN JUST A PRETTY PLACE
The choices you make about your wedding day will be evocative as to how you remember your wedding in years to come.
Emphasise the other senses – it is not solely about the visual.
Your wedding is the opportunity to show how much you value and care about those who are joining you.
Considerate choices to inspire and delight, to give them an association to a very unique experience. Creating new traditions and and weaving your wedding day story through the small details, textures, tones, tastes at one very special moment in time.
Wild weather meets urban living
My very first styled wedding photoshoots was designed on the concept of wild weather and urban living. I wanted a modern take on a small intimate wedding that blended together sounds, movement, touch and mood. These images represented the overall theme of the shoot. It was a total joy selecting the crazy talented creative professionals for this collaboration. You can see the final results on the Love My Dress blog for Wild Weather Meets Urban Living

Annie And Ren
“We can’t thank Jo enough for planning and organising our slightly unusual tri-location wedding-baptism! I must admit that when we first came up with the idea of having it spread over 3 places Ren and I did not fully appreciate what a challenge it would be logistically, but it all ended up going so well and running very smoothly, thanks to Jo.
There are so many elements of the day that stood out for us, and I’m not sure why I brought along a copy of my itinerary on the day (in a bag that Martin kindly carried around all day!) because I did not check it once – I didn’t need to as everything was taken care of, of course!”
For What It’s Worth
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you’re proud of.
If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald
