It was with joy and a little luck (Covid stayed away) that we hosted the nuptials of some very special friends in January. After two false starts in 2020 it really was an uplifting way to start 2021--finally family and friends could come together to witness the union of two lovely humans.
Who knew that an old glass blowing factory could be transformed in a matter of days … we did! With the help of hands-on family and friends, flower-growers, local businesses and the bride herself our space literally blossomed 😊
We had always envisaged that this place would be multi-faceted – equally suited to be a gallery showroom or as an intimate event venue with a new old feel. For those who like their functions to be visually appealing – the warehouse is an installation itself. Find some of our pretty props here.
The boys from The Wedding Shed delivered, pretty ceramics, glassware and jostled the perfect u-shape of tables and bentwood chairs to seat forty-five guests -- allowing plenty of space for both the bride and the arched window. The true heart of the showroom.
Finally the day arrived and the bride and groom were blessed with a classic summer afternoon in Byron. The ceremony was held in front of the arched window with the sun streaming in, followed by a fun procession onto the front lawn where celebratory drinks and canapes were waiting – thanks Kouzina !
Good karma was all around as a number of things fell into place - including meeting Maria from Samambaia Flowers just a few days before the event. I had some serious vision for Mandy’s café-au-lait dahlias and our beautiful 19thC French urns… but it was pure joy to actually see a skilled florist bring my vision to life. Thank you to Maria & Mandy ♡
There are some serious arrangements to be made so that events like this go smoothly and with out a hitch ... but this space truly does lend itself to small intimate events, private dinners, photoshoots or informal gatherings. Get in touch if you are looking for a creative place and space in the heart of Byron with age and beauty.
