Barbie-Pink Bridal Shower Meets Taronga Zoo

Congratulations are in order for the lovely Andriana Hagipantelis and her beau, George Haroulis! The happy couple is set to tie the knot soon, and we are positive that it will be a wedding to remember! 

Now, we don’t know about you, but we’re still on a Barbiecore high—we’ll take a generous serving of bold blushes and pretty pinks on any day of the week. Enter Andriana’s adorable bridal shower, which immediately had us swooning over the lush event design!

The Venue and Design 

Organized and designed by event extraordinaire Diane Khoury, the party took place at the Taronga Zoo events center, a refreshing and classy venue on the picturesque Sydney Harbour. This spot is also where the couple got engaged in August 2022!

To achieve the abundant garden setup, John Emmanuel Floral Events was tapped for the multi-colored blooms. White Label Design Build created the custom backdrop, while place settings and chairs were provided by The Pretty Table Hire and Harbourside Decorators, respectively. The various signages and decals were supplied by Letters By LouLou and Edge House Design

Andriana’s guests were all treated to personalized activity booklets, which came with their seating placements! This special touch was provided by The Treasure Room Event Hire and the aforementioned stationery suppliers. 

The end result was as stunning as can be!

The Look 

Andriana’s romantic off-the-shoulder mini dress was created by Australian designer Lillian Khallouf

“I had the immense pleasure of collaborating with Andriana in crafting and curating the ideal look for her bridal shower. Constructed from an Italian duchess satin, this mini features a meticulously designed built-in corset and a voluminous hand-draped off-the-shoulder neckline,” wrote the designer on Instagram. 

The blushing bride-to-be accessorized with simple gold bangles, and finished off the look with a pair of sky-high pointy pumps in a hot pink shade. 

Andriana’s sleek half-updo was by hairstylist Natalie Anne Ayoub, while the soft Hollywood glam makeup was done by Melissa Sassine.
