featured wedding: ilana & benjamin part 1.
One of the greatest joys in running Bespoke is the opportunity to work with gorgeous couples and to help them create a beautiful wedding which is a perfect reflection of them both. Although our stationery and paperie is only a small part of their wedding we love sharing the journey with them. It tickles us pink when our couples send us images of their wedding, we feel so proud, and so very blessed that we helped in just a little way to make their wedding perfect.
The gorgeous Ilana & Benjamin have recently sent through their amazing wedding shots by SugarLove. Their wedding was held at The Tea Room Gunners Barracks in Mosman, Sydney, with their ceremony held on the lower lawn with spectacular views of Sydney Harbour, Watsons Bay and Rose Bay.
"My favourite part of the day was the ceremony because it’s the most sentimental and meaningful part of the day, we were really involved in writing the whole ceremony so it was very personal and emotional for us".
Ilana & Benjamin searched high and low to find a Super8 videographer – this was inspired by film footage Ilana had seen of her mum and dad from the 70s when they first met on a holiday in Bali. Moudanier Pictures came to the rescue and shot their entire wedding the old fashioned way (and how we love the old fashioned way of doing things!).
We loved the way that Ilana was very conscious to include Benjamins style and personality into the planning of their day. The groomsmen all wore rock n roll skinny black suits with skull and cross bone socks and cufflinks in keeping with their love of metal music.
"The night ended with us all dancing the night away under the stars on the sandstone courtyard to classic 80’s tracks and a memorable rendition of the gunners sweet child of mine from all the bridal party, air guitar at it’s best! Everyone had a ball and that is all you can ask for, after a year and half of planning!"
