Chelsea + Matt // The Orchard Estate, Byron Bay Wedding

Aug 11, 2017

We feel incredibly lucky to work with some truly amazing couples who trust us to bring their unique vision to life through our wedding planning and design services, and our sweet Chelsea & Matt were no exception.

After a romantic proposal at Wategos Beach, Chelsea & Matt chose to return to Byron Bay to tie the knot. Moody grey skies in the hinterland set the backdrop for their gorgeous day, at one of our favourite local venues The Orchard Estate. With a styling vision of ‘laid-back luxe’, the brief from Chelsea & Matt was to create a relaxed and fun wedding filled with beautiful details.

To bring this contemporary look to life, our team of Byron Bay wedding planners worked to create different styled areas for each element of their day, beginning with an intimate ceremony that was the perfect example of an incredibly executed Plan B! No amount of rain would detract from this setting, which included a lush floral frame overflowing with white blooms that became a beautiful backdrop for Chelsea & Matt to exchange vows amongst their nearest and dearest.

Their elegant cocktail hour took place in the light-filled barn at The Orchard Estate, where we styled several break out areas to create a relaxed, luxe atmosphere for guests to enjoy. We chose modern wire furniture and sophisticated lounge settings in tones of white and gold to complement the incredible marble-topped bar, lush green backdrop and personalised calligraphy-etched coconuts displayed on timber shelving.

We continued this luxe colour palette through to the reception, with a clear marquee that allowed the panoramic hinterland views to filter in at every angle. With Chelsea & Matt’s original venue closing down, some strategic styling was required from our team to transform a vacant carpark into a pop-up reception under the stars, so we implemented layers of astro-turf and an abundance of plants to create a lush green setting to build on. Long wooden feasting tables paired with gold wire chairs were topped with pastel and mocha-toned blooms in textured white vases, creating a soft and romantic tablescape underneath drop-down gold pendant lights and hanging foliage.

While guests dined inside the beautiful marquee, our team were busy flipping the barn from an elegant cocktail setting into a colourful party zone complete with disco balls, vibrant florals, neon lights and sleek black and gold decor. Guests continued their celebrations inside this transformed space as the sun went down, with a colourful floral installation creating a textural photo backdrop to capture memories from the night.

With incredible imagery of the day shot by Lucas & Co (as recently featured on Harpers Bazaar), it was a wedding that truly encapsulated Chelsea & Matt as a couple. Take a look below for a snapshot into their beautiful Byron Bay wedding, along with the talented suppliers who helped to bring it all to life.
