Summer Weddings Galore

Wow December 1st and the 1st day of summer....Or so we thought Perth. In between the scorching heat and the torrentious downfall of rain there have been some beautiful weddings happening around Perth. Elysium has been all over Perth in what is shaping up to be another busy December. As it is almost Christmas and new year as well there have been many new bookings for corporate and private functions with people wanting that special party with friends or family. There are still vacancies for New Years and before hand if you want that last minute get together Elysium is available to cater for all your needs.

The following set of photos is from a gorgeous home wedding where we converted the classic style home into a truly special English garden ceremony reminiscent of a Jane Austen novel and also a modern vintage inspired reception. With some ceiling silks back drops a new paint job on the floor and a little patience it is amazing what can be done to an old garage...Something to consider for those who want an intimate feel at an affordable price.

Warmer Wedding Details

With the fresh air and sunshine draping over Perth today I have gone a little overboard in my Pinterest searching. So many fantastic ideas for such wonderful people. With the busy weekends now with us this is probably the last chance I'll get to gaze over the loveliness on offer on Pinterest for a while. Here are some of the favs for today - with a spring/summery feel engulfing my heart :) Enjoy.

The two centrepieces above are simple, yet quite unique. I love the bright, happy feeling they send.

Dessert Tables and Lolly Buffets are quickly becoming a must at weddings. We can now work with companies such as Simple Delightful Events to bring a dessert table to any function, that completely compliments the style and theme.

These two ideas above really captured my imagination, and are perfect for summer weddings in Perth. The cherry favour bags are great as cherry season is upon us - and is also a health alternative for your guests. The cardboard fans with wedding program are also a nifty idea for those warmer outdoor ceremonies. 

And to finish off theres this lovely centrepiece - a little more of that summer sunshine and radiance. 

I hope you have enjoyed my little design idea spurge - looking forward to sharing more photos of our events & weddings shortly
