On Wednesday 26th July 2017 The Wedding Series launched their inaugral Love Story Exhibition and Love Story Magazine at David Jones Bridal in Sydney to an exclusive guest list including media, industry and a number of the love story couples. Guests sipped Perrier Jouet from hand etched champagne coupes whilst grazing on a lavish feasting table created by Aria Catering.
The Wedding Series Styling Director Hayley Cravigan created a magnificent hero wall showcasing some of David Jones most exceptional accessories brands as well as creating beautiful Jo Malone and La Mer moments so guests could immerse themselves in the beautiful products. The wall was the perfect back drop to the stunning Bulgari centre piece featuring some of the key jewellery pieces worn through out the exhibition images.
Eight Love Stories adorned the walls of the Bridal Suite with additional images displayed on rose gold easels perfectly positioned amongst the stunning bridal gowns. Highly acclaimed harpist Jake Meadows performed for the duration of the launch only stopping for the Q&A session between The Wedding Series Founder Kate O’Shea and Artist Kerrie Hess. Guests were given an insight into Kerrie’s Love Story Experience and her stay at breathtaking Spicers Peak Lodge on the highest point of Queensland.
Cinematic short films of the Love Stories played on loop on large screens so guests could immerse themselves in the beautiful wedding venues that hosted each Love Story shoot.
