REAL EVENT – #LandJareEngaged
Lauren and James’ engagement was the party of all parties, celebrated in a playground of colour and fun at a private residence overlooking the Brisbane skyline. Bursting with bright colours and festive décor and styling, it was the perfect combination for the hot summer night’s feast of fun.
It was a spectacular setting, rich with contemporary furniture and custom lighting inspired by geometrics and the couple’s own signature ‘diamond’ motif present throughout the styling concept. The colour palette was a gorgeous combination of bright aquas, cheerful yellows and accents of magenta, coupled with bright green foliage including a stunning green wall behind the bar. Trails of jungle leaves and pops of coloured flowers totally transformed the marquee. Lauren wore a magnificent floral headpiece that matched her vivacious personality.
There were so many amazing features, including a suspended walkway over the pool with stunning floating floral arrangements; a chic white circular bar and; festoon lighting over Hamptons style settings abundant with plush cushions for guests to lounge.
Friends and family dined on sensational food inspired by the sea and land, featuring freshly shucked oysters, Hervey Bay scallops, pork buns and a ham station served by Chef Alistair McLeod. A dessert bakery followed with little diamond delights and delectable espresso martinis.
A magical surprise fireworks display absolutely wowed guests who then danced the night away under the starry night sky. There was so much energy under the marquee, it was a explosion of festival fun.
