FOR THE LOVE

LOVE OF WEDDINGS

AlysiaBridger Evets

“I’VE ALWAYS LOVED WEDDINGS,” SAYS ALYSIA BRIDGER. “EVER SINCE I WAS AT SCHOOL! MY MUM RAN A WEDDING FLOWERS BUSINESS WITH HER GIRLFRIENDS AND OUR HOME WAS ALWAYS FILLED WITH WONDERFUL BLOOMS AND INCREDIBLE CENTREPIECES.”

CELEBRATIONS BY ALYSIA may only be two years young,

but their team has been delivering stunning events for over

twelve years. They’re renowned for their incredible

attention-to-detail, luxurious design and dedicated personal

service.
“We are there every step of the way for all our gorgeous

couples,” explains Alysia.
It’s this level of specialised individual service that sets

Celebrations by Alysia apart. “I received the most

heart-warming letter from a recent mother-of-thebride,”

reveals Alysia. “She said they would always treasure the

time we spent together and that every single minute and

detail of her daughter’s wedding day just blew them away. She finished

by saying that we would always be part of their family. It was the most beautiful compliment we could have ever received.” Indeed, the compliments are coming hard and fast from all corners for the flourishing stylist and planner, who recently had the opportunity to work with and host global celebrity wedding designer Karen Tran in Brisbane.

“I love flowers, candles, centrepieces, lighting and beautiful stationery… all the details that make your wedding unique to you.”

 

“Karen has a wonderful warmth and style and she is so generous in sharing knowledge of her tried and tested designs,” exclaims Alysia. “It was an opportunity to share the magic with my industry friends and collaborators! Karen is an absolute trendsetter in our industry with her luxurious designs and elegant style and it was an absolute privilege and honour to work so closely with her and her beautiful family.”

When it comes to creating exquisitely beautiful, luxurious wedding style, Alysia
is in her element. “The best advice I can offer brides is: take one element that you adore and focus on that. Flowers, for example… a stunning backdrop, an incredible bridal table, and gasp-worthy centrepieces! I’m a big believer in taking what you love, multiplying it en-masse and putting it in the spotlight. No matter what you
choose; if it’s yours, it will be amazing.

Modern Wedding

Drawing inspiration from fresh the natural beauty of Tuscany, stylist Alysia from Celebrations By Alysia creates a bright wedding atmosphere to pop against an Autumn landscape. “We love Tuscany and we really wanted to work with the colour palette of Tangerine, cream and silver green” says Alysia. “The rich terracotta and autumn foliage backdrop provided by The Brides Market was a stunning Tuscan combination for our styled shoot and tablscape.”

Fruits adorn the wedding tablescape and are paired with divine fresh floral arrangements to create an atmosphere that is not only a delight for the eyes, but will also emanate a wonderful citrus aroma at the table. The bride and adorable flower girl match the tuscan inspired wedding reception with their crisp white dresses and luscious flower crowns by Bella Bloom Floral Designs.

The halls have been decked, there’s a nip in the air, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t indulging in hot cocoa every. single. night. here lately. And so imagine our excitement when we saw this fabulously festive shoot from Celebrations by Alysia pop up in our inbox!

Captured beautifully by Lyndal Carmichael Photography and with creative direction by The Wedding Playbook, today’s holiday fete at The Joinery has us feeling oh-so inspired. Make no mistake about it, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

The Wedding Playbook

As a siren of the silver screen, there’s no better way to celebrate the iconic style of Elizabeth Taylor than with a glamorous bridal shoot. Enjoy a luxurious setting, timelessly chic details and two flawless wedding day looks!

Set in a modern-meets-vintage lounge space evoking the golden era of Hollywood, a crystal candelabra stands alongside gold gilded furniture, ruby red florals and stacked books penned by fashion’s elite. An eclectic bouquet of hydrangea, poppies, roses and berries adds colour, texture and romance.

The gown features delicate floral applique, a low back and detachable tulle overlay – a choice inspired by one of Ms. Taylor’s many beautiful costumes. A bold lip, winged eye, glossy waves and striking garnet accessories complete this elegant look.

How to build consumer relationships online, creating a professional social media strategy and building an online profile – it was safe to say that everyone who attended Creative Business Hub’s Sydney Seminar walked away with a wealth of information.

Business owners from across Australia – some even caught a plane to make it – packed the beautifully decorated seminar hall at the Sydney Harbour Marriott last week to learn the tips and tricks of how consumers connect with businesses online.

OH IT’S PERFECT

If you’re anything like me, you’d agree that long weekends are a perfect time to entertain. So with the long weekend ahead, what a better time to inspire you by sharing Celebrations By Alysia‘s amazing Melbourne Cup shoot. With an array of incredibly talented vendors, it is especially refreshing to see a Spring Racing celebration step away from pastels and opt for vibrant blues and deep greens instead. Consistency becomes key in this celebration, as the colour palette remains to perfection in every little detail.

Social Media Seminar

Creating a social media strategy, utilising digital platforms and keeping your followers engaged – all of this and more was explored in detail at Wedded Wonderland and Creative Business Hub’s Social Media Seminar.

Local business owners filled the Stamford Plaza’s gorgeously decorated seminar hall for the event, with picturesque views of the Brisbane River providing the event with a beautiful backdrop.

Renowned for his attention to detail and contemporary elegance, George Wu has dressed the likes of Angelina Jolie, the Veronicas, Cat Deely and Kristy Hinze as well as Kat Miler- Heike. His latest shoot epitomises the clean, old-meets-new look that George does so effortlessly.

Mother’s Day
Styling Celebrations By Alysia

“This Mother’s Day will be all about eating good food and relaxing with our little tribe,’’ says El Rowland. ‘’Two musts include: having a picnic with my little family, and looking at the stars with Lee.”

We’re not surprised relaxation is on the cards for this super mum. This time last year El was preparing to leave her son, Darcy, to become a castaway on a Samoan island with 24 other competitors in Australian Survivor. And it seems not much has changed! El and her partner Lee Carseldine have made it home just in time for Mother’s Day from a 10-day survival trek in Vanuatu.
