Fucking Excellent Vendors

Finding the right vendors in a jungle of vendors isn’t always easy, I know that for sure. I’ve been there too. So I’ve gathered some absolutely amazing vendors I’ve come across at weddings I’ve photographed. All of these people create astounding work and at the same time they’re pretty rad people too. Which never ever hurts. The world needs more rad people!

SHORT CUTS

CELEBRANTS

KIM / DEAR HENRI
Kim is bubbly, excited and all about making your celebration as fun as can be! And she has a secret skill – she’s also a killer florist!
dearhenri.com.au

DEE / THE WEDDING ANARCHIST
You’re looking for something with colour and a bit of attitude? Dee’s your gal! She’s all around awesome!
theweddinganarchist.com.au

MEGAN THOMPSON
After something sweet and lovely? Megan’s your girl. Sometimes she has surprise chocolate in her purse which is an absolute bonus.

FLORISTS

MEGS / GOOD GRACE & HUMOUR
Free form floral goodness this is. Megs can make magic out of foraged goodness and works without any floral foam. The environment says yay!
goodgraceandhumour.com

KIM / DEAR HENRI
Playful, fun, colourful and awesome. Kim’s creations as a florist are equally as good as her ceremonies, because yes, she’s a celebrant too!
dearhenri.com.au

MARNIE / POPPY’S GETTING MARRIED
Excited, fun, creative and an absolute delight. I reckon this is the best way to describe Marnie. She’s also got a great knack for flower crowns!

GOWNS

Okay! Gowns are a big thing in the wedding industry. Now these are just dresses I’ve noted, you can wear WHATEVER YOU WANT. You can wear jeans for all I care. Or get a jumpsuit from a store. Or a vintage sequin top with a big tutu. Be comfy. Be you. Be rad. So, for this, I’m just going to list a few links. Look at them, don’t. Do you.

HAIR & MAKEUP

HEATHER WOLL
This girl knows how to create some clean and crisp makeup. It’s editorial, it’s on point and you’ll look sharp AF plus she’s such a great gal to have around.
HEATHERWOLL.com

JULZ / MADE YOU BLUSH
Julz can create some amazing natural looks, but she also knows how to bring the fun! She’s put gold flecks in fringes, splattered glitter everywhere and uses colour like a pro! Well, she is one after all.

SOPHIE KNOX
Sophie is the queen of soft, luscious boho looks. Dewy skin and soft smokey eyes paired with effortless hair. Like seriously, her work keeps taking my breath away. Also, she’s so lovely!
