United We Stand

THERE’S NOTHING QUITE LIKE THE ABOUNDING BEAUTY FORGED BY CREATIVE MINDS.

Let’s celebrate the unity of creativity; how the simple act of joining forces can culminate in a thing of true beauty. These creatives knew that together they were stronger, and so they set about orchestrating a shoot that showcased their bountiful talents. We can now relish in the fruits of their combined labour, and while we journey through this shoot, these vendors will also be taking us behind the scenes, sharing with us what connects them to the wedding industry.

LAUREN GORDON
Florist—Laurel and Lace
Flowers that are beautifully unique are what I offer to the wedding industry. I love creating loose, organic arrangements filled with romance and texture. I like to add a little something special such as feather grasses, fruits, branches and berries and lovely long-flowing ribbons.
I believe that plants and flowers were always meant to be a big part of my life. As a little girl, I would follow my mum around the garden falling in love with each and every flower that I met. I would wander through the neighbourhood gardens picking flowers to preserve in the beautiful wooden flower press that my dad built for me. I have always felt a strong connection to flowers as they are not only beautiful but meaningful too and I always encourage my brides to include blooms in their wedding that are special to them in some way.

TELISA ORZELEK
Makeup Artist + Beauty Therapist
I think having a background in beauty as well as makeup helps me understand beauty and skin in so many ways. My style is quite soft, natural and skin-focused, with subtle touches to enhance my clients’ best features. I offer a style of makeup to the wedding industry and to my clients that makes them feel beautiful but also themselves.
My passion is what I bring to the wedding industry. I believe having a passion for makeup and creativity in this field is essential, but I also love being a part of the most special day of someone’s life. It is amazing to be able to spend the days with people that are filled with so much love and happiness and surrounded by their closest friends and family. As the saying goes, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”

LAUREN CAMPBELL
Photographer
Capturing the connection and emotion between two people in a beautiful way is my passion. The approach I take is that of a quiet observer, unobtrusively documenting and sharing in the events as they happen, letting the day speak for itself to showcase the quiet and joyous moments alike. I’m there for the real connections, the real emotions and all the beautifully intricate details.
Knowing that images matter is what connects me to this industry. What I do really matters on a very personal level to my couples and their whole family. A photograph is a captured fragment of time, an art form that seeks to portray real and lasting memories in an evocative, contextual and emotional way. They are the lasting representations of the most important day of their lives and they are surrounded by everyone they hold dear. And in 50 years’ time they will still have these physical memories of laughter, love, tears and even possibly lost loved ones to look back on. That’s a huge responsibility and it’s something I feel honoured to be able to provide for people.
