We love tropical styled weddings at Watsons Bay!
This month we sit down with local stylist Dani Butchart, who is launching a new creative studio brand called ‘They Make Haus’, to find out her tips on Wedding styling trends & future predictions.
Dani is also an acclaimed winner, taking out the top prize for Inside Out magazine’s ‘Search for a Stylist’ competition in 2015!
1. What are the styling items & textures you love working with the most for weddings?
I like to mix textures across most styling items, it creates a beautiful aesthetic. My favourite currently is mixing marble + concrete.
2. What are you seeing as the common trend for wedding styling this year?
An evident trend is a BIG move away from DIY and rustic styles. A move towards clean, relaxed styling, Lots of green + metallic tones.
The styling movement I’m noticing is to create more hero pieces rather then smaller styled options throughout venues. This would include floral walls or floral ceiling displays. It’s a great shift as it allows more freedom to dream up original concepts.
3. What do you predict will become more popular over the coming 12 months for wedding styling?
My thoughts are that foliage is going to take over the blooms. I think bridal party blooms will still be very full and floral but possibly taking on some wild and loose shapes. Every bride is wanting to GO GREEN. The tropical leaves are always a seasoned favourite.
4. Your tips for the bride-to-be?
Not to focus on what everyone else is doing, focus on what YOU want and what will make your wedding most memorable. We hope to style an event that really captures the couples style and leaves a lasting impression on their guests.
We recently collaborated with Dani for a Watsons Bay Sunset Style Session photo shoot, stay tuned for the stunning images!
