Why Stylist?

Working in the wedding industry myself for a few years, I have seen it all! One thing I highly recommend (if budget allows), is hiring an experienced stylist/coordinator. Try to avoid weighing down guests and family with tasks for the day, it can get rather stressful (trust me) and you want them to enjoy the day. I sat down with two of our stylists to get a few more tips.

Amber Jasper Stylist

A former ballerina, Amber was trained by the Prince of Monaco Principality florist and from that learning, she brings a theatrical element to her work which is inspired and eclectic, and simply stunning. Amber is passionate about her work and unashamedly bold and powerful in the wedding’s she styles.

So a few questions for Amber:

Why should couples consider hiring a stylist?

It is definitely expensive but as I always say to people, would you do your electrical wiring for your house if you were not an electrician? It's a lot of money to spend on an eight-hour celebration if you don't get it right. Creating atmosphere & building the vibe is so important.

What trends or styles are you loving at the moment?

People are really pushing the boundaries. Love!! Dry leaves and palms are starting to be used more and I love them. Bold features versus spreading the budget throughout. Couples being involved together and not the way the girls grew up wanting a wedding.

Branka Panici is an independent stylist who began her career unknowingly, after single-handedly coordinating the styling of one of the biggest events of her life, her wedding. Branka’s wedding was featured on several blogs and shared many times on social media platforms and now makes all the weddings she works on just as special.

So here are a few questions for Branka:

If you could give one piece of advice to couples in the early stages of planning what would it be?

The best advice I can give to couples, in the early stages of planning a wedding, is to ensure that they book their non-negotiable vendors ASAP. Everyone's non-negotiables are different, so don't be afraid to book transport before a florist for example, as a car may mean more to you than what flowers may to someone else. Couples these days are booking as far as 18 months in advance, to ensure they don't miss out on their number one choice.

Why should couples consider hiring a stylist?

There truly is an abundance of inspiration out there at the moment. For some this is a dream come true but for others it can be very overwhelming. Having a professional to be able to guide you every step of the way and to assist you in discovering your own individual style, enables you to achieve the wedding you have always dreamed of. One that is going to be a representation of who you are and what you love, and not necessarily what's currently trending.

What trends or styles are you loving at the moment?

I am a hopeless romantic at heart, one who sobs with a box of tissues watching strangers wedding videos. So, it probably comes as no surprise that my forever and always is a soft and pretty style. I love the fact that we are seeing more and more; high-end flowers such as Phalaenopsis, drop bouquets, endless candles, lush linen in pastel tones, soft lighting and an overall timeless look.

Favourite venue in WA and why?

We are so lucky to live in a state as beautiful as WA and to have access to SO many GORGEOUS venues, that picking a favourite is almost impossible. That being said, I truly believe that your venue is THE most personal choice you will make for your wedding day and one that you will most likely choose based on emotion. A venue for me has to be magical to be perfect, which means that it overlooks the river, makes you feel calm, has an abundance of natural light shining through, is a blank canvas but still has character and last but not least one from where you can watch the sun set and the stars shine. Believe it or not such a venue exists, it's called Acqua Viva and I fell in love with it for my own wedding and continue to fall as the years go by.
