Monica and Anthony's wedding

The Great Hall, USYD

Whimsical and wonderful wedding at the Great Hall of University of Sydney

The concept

Imagine walking into a world full of whimsy and wonder. With the wedding styling concept for Monica and Anthony’s wedding at the amazing Great Hall of University of Sydney, we wanted to create this magical and mystical set up that would leave guests in awe with romantic candlelight throughout the venue. We absolutely love the colour palette we used for this wedding with dark burgundys and deep plums that is so different to our usual wedding designs. This colour scheme is so moody, but also so incredibly romantic. Hundreds of stems of fresh flowers cascaded down the table stands with lots of wispy foliage that all came together so beautifully. For Monica and Anthony, we wanted to create something really unique so we reinvented our signature starlight pieces as a custom design for the king tables. This involved unwrapping and setting up thousands of baubles that looked so magical when they were all lit up. We were so grateful to be a part of the wedding styling for this gorgeous whimsical wedding.
Monica and Anthony Great Hall Wedding

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.

Can you imagine walking into a room and seeing thousands of floating candlelights? It was an absolutely breathtaking vision. The Great Hall of Sydney University is such a spectacular and historical architectural structure on its own, and filling it with all these candlelights only enhances its beauty.

With all our candlelight designs, it’s about creating beautiful contrasts with lighting to make them stand out. Enhancing the candlelight here is the addition of purple uplighting along the walls that takes your guests right out of this world. Incredibly surreal!

And let’s not forget about the stunning frame backdrop around the bridal table with beautiful burgundy florals cascading like an exotic jungle. This whole wedding styling was so fun and all the golden touches made it so elegant and luxurious.
