Carlie + Josh

Hiring a stylist

Carlie originally reached out to me as she had seen me on Hello May as well as Instagram.  Given she and Josh were living in rural Western Australia at the time, she felt it would be helpful to have some local wedding knowledge on her side.  Having worked at Ardeena previously, we could get started on styling right away.  The vibe was minimalistic, classic and romantic.  Carlie opted for lots and lots of candles and we kept the running theme of “GONE BUSH” from the initial (thanks covid) invitations to a custom neon sign by Neon Republic.


Ardeena Estate is the sister venue of Summergrove, nestled in the rolling hills of Carool NSW, it is a DIY venue which allows you to build a bespoke event.  With onsite cabins, the property allows for accomodation for you and your loved ones.  It is also home to some beautiful birdlife and offers a sweeping view of the Coolangatta skyline.

Wedding Day

Wanting to bring a feeling of intimacy to their large guest list, Carlie and Josh opted for a feasting style menu which was presented down the length of three long tables.  They presented speeches and champagne on the lawn during cocktail hour so their guests could experience a relaxed canapé hour and after dinner, their casual acoustic entertainment switched into party mode with a DJ to bring the dance floor to life.
