These two meant to be together forever! A fairy tale in the making with both parents houses only steps away from each other. Their career path crossed for the first time in an operating theatre and that’s where their story began…Both had very similar upbringings. Meg’s father being a Cray fisherman, a lot of her youth revolved around the ocean and Franc grew up on an island in the Caribbean Sea.
Their work leaves very little time for anything else, never mind organizing a wedding, so I was delighted to be asked to design and plan their wedding. They both wanted to hold the ceremony at his parents’ home and then have the guests just walk a few houses down to hold the reception at her parents’ home.
Meg and Franc love soft pink colours and with Franc’s Mum being a watercolour artist she started immediately on the invitation design. They turned out to be amazing! The ceremony was set-up by the pool in the backyard immediately to be followed by champagne toasts. The guests made their way to the reception following a bag pipers music, who is a family friend.
Meg and Franc wanted a family feast style dinner with one plate being crayfish supplied by Meg’s Dad. Signature cocktails throughout the night and a caricaturist entertaining the guests. Jess, Meg’s long time friend and bridesmaid made the 3 tier naked cake. I can personally vouch that it tasted amazing.

As seen on:
Through cultural traditions Kitty and Ku will have 3 weddings to attend. One in Kitty’s home country Pakistan, one in Ku’s home country Malaysia and one in Perth with their close family, friends and work colleagues. With both being doctors their life leaves little time for anything else, never mind planning a wedding for 150 guests.
When Kitty came to see me she told me that the wedding in Perth should reflect them and should be very personal. She did not want any traditional customs incorporated.
Her favourite colour happened to be the Pantone colour of the year 2015 – Marsala. I added a few dashes of blue with the candles.
I suggested finding a venue where we can have the ceremony, pre-dinner drinks and reception at one place and Lamonts Bishops House was the perfect place.
Kitty flew many times to Pakistan to have the brass charger plates designed, sourcing the table linen and napkins under my guidance. The charger plates were later given to the guests as a gift. She also purchased the fabric for her wedding gown and found a designer in Melbourne who was happy to design her wedding gown.
The lantern above the tables and the up lights by the trees where just beautiful and gave the right ambiance.
Stationery is a very big part of a wedding and can also act as part of the décor. The seating chart had to be large as some of the names were quite long. With 3 very long tables we had to opt for a landscape seating chart.
The napkin ring was also the seating card which together with the napkin set off so perfectly on the charger plate.
It all came together in harmony beautifully and with such a talented team behind me who made it all happen.
