Sarah and Brent

St Georges Church Hall, Epsom


Sarah and Brent wanted a relaxed, afternoon reception that reflected NZ, with a vintage feel to it. As they were holding their reception in their Church Hall, a complete makeover was needed. Once the walls were stripped of all previous decorations we bought in all the furniture, banquet chairs and crisp white damask linen, and immediately we were looking at a wedding reception. Add in the wedding decorations - the gorgeous centrepieces, fairy light curtains, native NZ plants and paper lanterns - and the room was really taking shape. Sarah had made a bunch of bunting (along with the pretty tea labels and guest placecards) so we hung these from the rafters to finish off the look. We also placed some photos from their engagement shoot on the walls around the buffet table, and a released over 100 white and gold helium balloons to lighten up the dark (and very high) ceiling.
