Jason James Design was commissioned to create the design and style direction for the wedding of Sandy and Rod at the iconic Sydney University’s Great Hall.
Jason James created a truly memorable and unique experience; styled to deliver originality and personality, ensuring the event was nothing short of fabulous.
The concept for this beautiful wedding was a fusion of the groom’s colourful South American background with the bride’s rich Middle Eastern heritage. Combined, the result was a resplendent feat of colour and texture.
The creative direction for the floral installations involved a custom designed 12-metre truss structure positioned over the bridal table featuring cascading ferns, roses in oranges, pinks and reds and hydrangea accents.
A mass of green trees created a rain forest effect at the back of the venue which was offset by the beautiful sandstone walls. Terracotta hexagonal tiles, hand-painted table numbers and hand-written tags in custom calligraphy were attached to pears; together these details helped express the concept.
The wedding cake consisted of three bespoke hand-painted cakes, each embellished with individual gold leaf geometric shapes, a motif that was an extension of the invitation and menu graphics. The cakes were positioned on an oak timber table along with a gilded gold mirror which reflected the bright floral garden creeping through and around the display.
Overall the concept incorporated bespoke South American accents brining visual harmony and cultural aesthetic which was offset by the heritage of Sydney University’s Great Hall.
