Cassandra and Ben's wedding

The Great Hall University of Sydney

Romance under lush greenery and warm candlelight

The concept

Designing Tran and Samuel’s wedding was an incredibly challenging yet satisfying journey of developing the experience they wanted on their wedding day and turning it into reality of holding their wedding out in the night skies. Why didn’t they just host it out in the open? Besides the unpredictable nature of Sydney Australia’s weather, their cultural backgrounds meant they had little choice in where they could host their wedding. It had to accessible for the elders and family, and the food served be impeccable Asian seafood wedding banquet.

This was going to be a traditional Cabramatta wedding so it had to be held within one of Cabramatta’s established restaurant / wedding venue – so where else better than Silver Pearl? Yes the food is great and we had just recently designed their renovations but it wasn’t quite the night skies experience both Tran and Samuel wanted.


USYD The Great Hall wedding reception

The Great Hall at the University of Sydney is a stunning heritage site, well reputed for its prestige. We love all the architectural features of this venue to host grand weddings.

“A grand and magical wedding”

Take a look at the gorgeous bridal table runner we styled for Ben and Cassandra filled with lively falling leaves. There is something so simply romantic about lush green leaves that we also used it to design the backdrop of the bridal table, with delicate fairy lights falling like little stars.

What made a big impact on the romantic ambience of the space was the floor lighting that shone up onto the sandstone walls and portraits. This warm lighting really highlighted spectacular elements of the venue and made the space feel intimate. It was a wedding fit for a King and Queen like our beautiful couple.
