Last weekend Aneta and myself decided to exhibit at the recent Wellington Wedding Expo. We wanted to create something a little different from the usual trestle-table affair, so set about building a lounge-themed set to encourage people to enter our stand, get up close with our prints and slideshows and sit down and chill looking over our albums.
We found these awesome chairs. But red isn’t really our colour, so we set about reupholstering them ourselves:
We also built & stained this wicked fireplace surround and reupholstered this beautiful fireplace screen:
We found some other great furniture – a coffee table, a beautiful lamp, and a bunch of assorted antique frames.
We also had a few new albums printed – it feels great to refresh our samples from time to time – and framed a bunch of our favourite photos.
And then on the Saturday, it all came together for the first time as we spent the day setting up the stand. First up was the wallpaper:
Followed by the hanging of our numerous frames and placement of Aneta’s bespoke stationery designs:
Finally, it was all in place:
Sunday was awesome! We didn’t manage to get as personal as we would have liked with many visitors, but we had some great discussions with passionate couples and even ran into quite a number of our existing clients looking for other inspiration for their big day next summer. It was great fun!
If you stopped by and had a chat to us, thanks. We appreciate it. Hope to see you at a wedding next summer.
If you didn’t get a chance to chat to us, but are curious about our work, get in touch and we’ll present our slideshows and albums to you in person!
Take care out there.
