So, after many loooong discussions over wines and coffee, we have come up with out top 3 couples for our wedding giveaway! (Fist pumps all round)

Each of our top 3 are there for different reasons and have totally different looks and feels in mind for their big day, so it’s going to be near impossible to choose a winner. There were so many behind the scenes pictures on their amazing pinterest folders, unfotunately we can’t share everything with you. But their mood boards below are just a snapshot of whats potentially to come from their weddings. They are all ah-mazing and we can’t wait to bring one of them to life next wedding season. Woo hoo! Bring it!

Again we can’t emphasise how much we appreciate the time and effort that went into every entry that hit our inbox, and we truly are sorry we can’t choose you all.

Big congrats to our top 3! We will be in touch if we have any further questions about your big day!

WEDDING GIVEAWAY TOP 10! WOO HOO!

Firstly, a massive THANK YOU must go out to the hundreds of entries we had! There were so many incredible boards we had to choose from and I can tell you one thing for sure… there are going to be some ah-mazing weddings around next season with or without our help.

It took us sooo long (and making our caffeine addiction worse in the process) to narrow our entries down to the top 10! If you didn’t make the cut, it doesn’t mean your wedding concept wasn’t amazing enough, there were so many things we had to factor into choosing the top 10! We wish we could pick you all! Honestly, we were sad we couldn’t make it a top 100!

So, thank you all for being patient and for the time and effort you all put into creating your pinterest folders, we hope you enjoyed the process and really figured out what it is you are hoping to achieve on your big day! We know we loved scrolling through the abundance of beautiful images and hearing your stunning stories about how you met and how you got to where you are today.

Were feeling rather loved up at the moment thanks to you all!

In the meantime, as promised, here are the mood boards of our TOP 10 in random order. Big congrats to these guys and well be in touch if you were successful in getting into the TOP 3.

Watch this space as the top 3 will be announced very very soon!

LUCIENNE & SEBASTIAN

In an industrial setting with red highlights that will pop and add beautiful contrast. Mixed with an abundance of lush greenery, this wedding is sure to have the wow factor.

MEL & BRAD

A modern, yet organic approach. This savvy couple are getting married in an amazing museum which really sets the tone for their big day. The styling would be set to enhance the creative/design feel of the environment.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.28.50 pm

SUSAN & TIM

Hues of blue on blue on blue. There are so many ways we could transform this beautifully unique mood board into something incredible. Picking a single colour and using different tones in it is a great way to make a strong impact.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.35.45 pm

STEPH & SAM

There is sheer romance with this glistening mood board. With gold highlights ( very on trend right now) to compliment the shades of pink, and set in a beautiful winery overlooking mountain ranges. Organic elegance would be the overall vibe achieved.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.36.50 pm

JO & OLIVER

Textures everywhere with this stunning mood board, roughly laid layers and an organic approach to styling would really bring out the intimate yet romantic vibe this couple have portrayed so beautifully.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.37.43 pm

ERIN & JAKE

The views from this energetic couples unique venue is jaw-droppinly beautiful. An ‘at sea’ theme would be themed tastefully to compliment the stunning background and not detract from it.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.51.24 pm

SAMANTHA & DANIEL

Loving the vibrant colour palette here, this wedding would represent this couples fun personalities in a quirky way. With a loose mexican inspired board, we are well and truly inspired on how to bring this to life.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.39.39 pm

HANNAH & JACKSON

A stunning industrial venue, a classy yet organic approach to styling, imagine lush greenery with pops of muted colours suspended from raw beams, a chilled out vibe with lounges and great beats. Industrial romance is what we would create from a mood board like this.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.41.04 pm

LIV & DAVE

Beautiful timeless styling  with a subtle fun twist is what this board says to us. Simplistic styling done tastefully and organically will create a beautiful atmosphere transforming this gorgeous couples dream into a reality.

Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 3.42.50 pm

IMOGEN & ANDY

These moody vibes have us enthralled. A dark palette captures the imagination and creates an unexpected romantic vibe. A dimly lit reception with an abundance of candles, draped fabrics, hanging greenery installations and textures everywhere is what we envision for this beautiful couple.
