OCCASIONS: DESIRABLE DAYS PHOTO SHOOT
We recently had the pleasure of working with two gorgeous ladies, both of who are working in the wedding industry and have teamed up to create a new and exciting business called ‘Desirable Days’.
Desirable Days is a collaboration of Weddings of Desire and Pepper Sprout Hire, servicing Geelong and Melbourne in creating beautifully styled ceremonies with amazing hand made structures and high quality seating. We were invited to be onsite to see the Desirable Days Wedding Packages photo shoot. Shot by the very talented wedding photographer Nikole Ramsay, we witnessed the amazing wedding packages come to life and also contributed with some of our own DIY wedding ideas.
A bit about Laura (Weddings of Desire)
After marrying in Noosa in 2010 Laura never lost the urge to search the internet for those perfect styling ideas and décor for weddings. Laura had her first child and with time on her hands, Weddings of Desire Blog was created! After some success with her Blog, Laura was approached by Madison Magazine to contribute in blogging on their website. Following Madison came blogging on David Jones bridal website and also attending the latest runway shows for all the latest trends within the bridal industry.
Styling weddings came shortly after this. Laura was contacted by photographers , florists and her vendors to join them in styling weddings and shoots. A few years on and Weddings of Desire travels all around Melbourne, Geelong, Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula styling the perfect day for the bride and groom to be. Weddings of Desire has been featured on The Lane, Real Weddings, Hello May, Style Me Pretty, Cosmo Bride mag, Polka Dot Bride, Sweet Violet and Geelong Bride.
A bit about Sarah (Pepper Sprout Hire)
When Sarah was planning her own wedding in December 2011 they were all about creating a beautiful day that reflected them as a couple and a day that their family and friends would love, feel comfortable in and have fun. They started sourcing products that they couldn’t find to hire and from there Pepper Sprout Hire grew quite organically, they didn’t have great plans to start a hire company but they soon found a huge passion and love for sharing their beautiful pieces with others.
Pepper Sprout Hire is a boutique wedding and events hire company specialising in gorgeous and unique hire packages. They aim for their packages to help people create their perfect wedding or event!
A bit about Desirable Days
Laura Harvey and Sarah Ottens first met a year ago after being introduced by a mutual friend in the wedding industry. Over coffee they chatted about how they wanted to do something a little different in the wedding industry and they also felt that sometimes the wedding ceremony got left aside when in fact it is the most important part of the day. With the combination of the beautiful hand made décor that Sarah’s husband, Brad makes and Laura’s styling background the two of them came up with Desirable Days, beautifully styled ceremonies with all the extras for a fraction of the price of hiring a stylist. They also wanted brides to be able to have a unique and different ceremony, not just your average white chairs and red carpet.
Basic Package includes:
Chairs (Walnut bentwoods, handmade bench seats, white californian chairs), sisal aisle runner, signage for the ceremony to match the style of your chairs and your choice of signing table and chairs from their selection.
Luxe Package includes:
There are different themes available in the Luxe Package. The themes available are Boho, Garden, Beach, Country and Classic Whites. All packages include a beautiful handmade arch, signing table and chairs, aisle runners, extra style items, signage, vases for flowers. All of Desirable Days Luxe Packages are designed by Sarah and Laura with what works the best with the theme and style of your day.
All packages can also be designed to suit your needs. For further information see contact details below.
How did WHO LOVES THAT get involved?
We were approached by Laura and Sarah to assist with this photo shoot by bringing some DIY ideas to life. After having a chat, Laura and Sarah told us that they have a lot of brides that have fantastic and beautiful ideas in their heads however the cost was always an issue.
They wanted us to help out to show brides that their ideas can come to life with a little bit of time, dedication and some help from their bridesmaids but also without breaking the bank. Over the coming days, all the steps for our DIY’s from the Desirable Days photo shoot will be on the website, so stay tuned.
