Erin + Michael: Textural Overtones // Byron Bay Hinterland Wedding

Sep 18, 2018

Erin and Michael’s Byron Bay wedding was a day filled with textural details and a rich earthy palette, inspired by natural Australian landscapes and a shared love of outdoor adventures.

Recommended to us by one of our previous couples, Erin and Michael were a super chilled duo with the sweetest nature and a completely open mind when it came to the styling of their day. Already parents to a beautiful little girl, these guys also found out they were expecting number 2 halfway through the wedding planning journey, which made the whole experience even more special!

Drawing on Erin and Michael’s passion for exploring the rugged Tasmanian landscape and adventuring through the great outdoors, we chose an organic palette of warm browns, sage and blush, along with country-style elements of timber, wood and greenery when designing their day.

Taking place at the Orchard Estate, the rolling hills of the Byron Bay hinterland became the perfect backdrop for Erin & Michael’s intimate ceremony. We paired natural oak cross back chairs with a sweet birchwood arch, adorned with soft pastel florals, trailing olive leaf and muted foliage.

Outside the barn, blush velvet lounges and marble coffee tables created a luxe feel for post-ceremony drinks, while reception styling was filled with contrasting textures and organic overtones. Long timber tables sat beneath lush ceiling installations of fluffy pampas grass, dried foliage fronds and babies breath, while an oversized arrangement framed the bridal table (a last-minute creation that evolved throughout the morning, with our florist given full creative freedom to make something magical!).

Tablescapes were kept minimal and elegant, peppered with white orchids, gold candlesticks, statement blush plateware and luxe printed stationery. In one of our favourite moments from the day, Erin and Michael shared an emotional first dance to a beautiful rendition of Perfect by Ed Sheeran – an incredibly special moment to witness, and the perfect way to kick off the evening’s festivities!
