It was such a delight to perform with the winners of our Jen Huang photoshoot competitors last year – Sian and Ross, to come up with this board for their photo shoot.
Sian and Ross will have the board transformed into an inspiration shoot for the next Jen Huang workshop (to be held subsequent month in Bunker Bay, Western Australia). The shoot will be developed and styled by Cathrin D’Entremont of CD Weddings, like florals from Zinnia Floral Styles, stationery from Dizzy Wizzy Style and gowns from Samantha Wynne.
Right here’s a tiny peek at Sian and Ross’ inspiration board for their wedding day and a handful of suggestions of how they might translate their loves and character into their wedding day.

Sian and Ross have a relaxed, waterside glamour really feel to their wedding day. They will marry at Ross’ school chapel with their reception by the water at Mosman’s Restaurant.
Sian and Ross have a really clean vision for their wedding day, so I chose a palette of black white and taupe with a compliment of soft pink. The addition of the taupe pulled the Lisa Brown bridesmaid’s gowns Sian has already purchased into the colours of the day and grounded the black and white into the relaxed really feel of the day, adding an ‘easy-ness’ to the otherwise sophisticated black and white.
Sian has fallen in enjoy with a Jenny Packham gown, which suits the style of the wedding she and Ross want, but is recognized for her beautiful option of clothing wherever she goes. “My style adapts depending on the circumstances! I love the idea of a complete lace Monique Lhuillier gown and equally a chic Oscar de la Renta sleeved dress circa 2009, an art deco looking Jenny Packham dress and a modern day Matthew Williamson gown.” Her bridesmaids have chosen champagne Lisa Brown dresses (pictured) and Ross and his groomsmen will be wearing grey suits, white shirts with black ties.
For flowers, Sian’s dream bouquet is featured top rated left of the inspiration board – her favourite colour is pink and it weaves her way through her life so a easy touch of this in her bouquet reflects this.
As we lead into the reception, Sian and Ross have chosen a black and white theme. The couple have a adore of bare wood, masses of white blooms and touches of black inspired by a adore of calligraphy and the Florence Broadhurst wallpaper they have bought. I’ve included an earthy taupe to compliment the bridesmaid’s gowns and ground the theme.
For centrepieces, richly stained jarrah tables could be set with clear glass vases, glass bowls, little mercury vases, plenty of candles and white flowers (hydrangeas, tulips, orchids, ranunculas, dahlias, roses) grouped by sort to emphasise their distinct textures.
Paper goods is where Sian and Ross’ style can actually shine. Sian and Ross are utilizing a Florence Broadhurst wallpaper to back their menus which is reflected in the intricate style on the wedding cake and the thick black ink of the calligraphy. The intricacies of this style are also reflective of the time Sian spent in Japan and the black and white of Ross’ New Zealand background. Placecards and invitations can reflect their scheme by getting printed on all-natural, taupe paper with beautiful calligraphy. The simple earthy nature of the natural paper combined with the elegant calligraphy reflects their casually elegant styling.
With their keen interest in keeping fit collectively (Ross was a specialist rower representing Australia in another life) this could make their way by way of into their wedding with a easy black stamp on the back of an envelope or place cards – a nod to exactly where they met – at rowing!
Not only do the couple have a passion for very good food and excellent wine (reflective in the fresh regional make they are deciding on for their menu – scallops, marron, duck breast, raspberries) Ross has a passion for beer, a thing he has tried to persuade Sian to get into! (He has completed University studies in beer brewing!) Including this passion in the reception is only all-natural with a beer tasting table set up while guests are enjoying pre dinner drinks and guests led to their meal with bottles of Small Creatures beer.
The couple’s enjoy of food is also showcased in the request for a cheese table – laden with wheels of brie, honeycomb, crusty blue cheese and figs. Drinks by the river – lychee cocktails, sit down dinner with Margaret River wines and dancing – all on the wish list for the couple.
