Wow, What a night!
Blooms, champagne and incredible sites were promised and the amazing venue, collaborators and delish catering certainly delivered!
UNVEILED – A Luxury Wedding & Fashion Showcase, held on January 31st 2016 at the heavenly CLOUDLAND was beyond beautiful.
As guests arrived the sun beamed in through the exquisite retractable roof of Cloudland's Rainbow Room, located on the top floor of this whimsical, chic and oh-so beautiful venue.
With incredible styling created by Nicole Ritchie Collections and the fantastic team at Beautiful Weddings Australia there could be no doubt that the surroundings would be lush. And we weren’t disappointed! Their exquisite greenery wall flanked by exquisite floral walls created the incredible awe inspiring catwalk. The luscious fresh green floor runner along the catwalk was painstakingly put together by Bella Bloom Floral Designs using oodles of greenery and the countless hydrangeas . With staging by Staging Creations that looked like the ocean in reflecting the gorgeous gowns of the new collection, The Forgotten Garden Collection by Begitta –Bridal & Couture, with each individual piece hand crafted by Begitta’s fabulous team right here in Australia.
The Forgotten Garden is inspired by the Begitta’s travels to Monet’s Garden in Giverny just outside of Paris, France. The Forgotten Garden takes the sculpture of flowers and their texture and emulates the rhythm and flow of an exquisite lush garden and exports to the garden beyond the hidden gate. The Forgotten Garden Collection is place forgotten through time that has seen little of the world but instead has created its own from within.
Each piece of the collection is unique to Begitta’s story and yet tied together by signature hand-detailing and fabrics in tulle, silks, prints and beautiful French laces, with a colour story ranging from white to creams through blush, pinks and purples and divine floral prints. Featuring hand-draping, lace applique, subtle sparkles and adornments of handmade flowers, the collection is a high note on the breeze and a nod to Begitta’s love of otherworldly places and fairytale romances.
Our wonderful MC, Glenn of G&M DJ’s had the crowd whirring with excitement, setting the scene with his fab tunes and his incredible presence on the microphone. Each guest was greeted with goody bag full of delights from our sponsors, a divine custom watercolour program created by Love Notes and a glass of Sirromet Winery’s finest sparkling wine with customized UNVEILED Logo which absolutely blew us away!
Meeting and greeting our divine vendors was an absolute treat, seeing the beautiful smile of Amanda from We Are Twine, showcasing her stunning images of loved up brides and grooms to the saccharine sweet smells emanating from the incredible display table of Julie Whitehead Cakes and Chocolates.
We had a seat at the delightful Malin’s setup for Willow Branch Photography to view the incredible work she creates, capturing couples and families through her camera lense and there was absolutely no lack of sparkle to gaze at as we found ourselves mesmerized by the beautiful jewels presented by Redki Jewellery.
Come 7pm we were on the edge of our seats to get ready for the gorgeous models to swan down the runway with hair and makeup by the ultra-talented Kylies Professional Team. Ready to see the new collection by Begitta – Bridal & Couture aptly named “The Forgotten Garden” which showcased a beautiful array of bespoke gowns ranging in dreamy colours from whites and creams through to blush, lavender, fuchsia and rouge.
Not to be outdone by The Forgotten Garden Collection, our custom made Media Wall with sparkling backdrop provided by Beautiful Weddings Australia was a real show stopper and the exquisite and absolutely mind boggling Fresh Floral Wings created by the ever inspiring Bella Bloom Floral Designs with amazing foam wing cutout base created by Foamtastic Party Decor.
Thankfully we had our wonderful photographer Beth Mitchell Photography (who created the most insane “Trash The Dress” shoots) to document some of the evening through her lens and the incredible team of Wrapped Up Media to capture the event on film, with their team of three they captured so many beautiful angles of the whole event. Make sure you check out their incredible video below.
