George & James – Vintage Carnivale – Byron Bay

Posted in Styling Inspiration



Every time I look at the photos from this wedding, I both laugh and cry…there is just something crazily magical about Georgie and James, and Lovebird Weddings was so completely honoured to style their day. A huge thank you to the very talented team at Feather and Stone, who really bought this day to life with their incredible imagery.

If there is one thing that is constant about George and James, they’re always smiling, and always laughing. I enjoyed every minute of my time with them, both in the planning of their stunning day, and all through the day and into the night…and oh, how they danced!

They chose a Vintage Carnivale styled wedding, which immediately made me so happy…and all those beautiful colours. How I love styling with colour.But one of best moments looking back on these photos is the montage of James seeing Georgie for the first moment, and visa versa…it is these images that make me laugh and cry all in the same moment.

Congratulations Georgie and James. You two are amazing in every way.There is some commentary below to explain some of the cute details of this day. We especially love the wedding canopy we custom-made just for them. Tx

The gorgeous venue was the heritage listed Ewingsdale Hall, in a peaceful green valley near Byron Bay. Private and surrounded by amazing trees, it was the perfect spot for George & James joyous celebration! The scene was set with hay bale seating with eclectic lace and fabric throws, vintage bottles full of wildflowers, and a lemonade cart for guests upon arrival.

We created this handmade wedding canopy for George & James, which they can keep forever as a memento of their day and a cherished family heirloom.

And here is one of our favourite moments of the whole day – James’s expression when he saw George! Absolutely priceless!

Hoorah! Let the festivities begin!

The Garden Party & Sideshow Alley: George & James’s brief was simple: a very fun Vintage Carnival garden party, and we were so excited to get planning! We started with a colour palette of rustic neutrals and then piled on the joyful colour – lots of red, pink, orange, green & yellow.

Fun stalls were arranged around the lawn for a very memorable reception: Kissing Booth, Fairy Floss, Sweets, Popcorn and Punch, plus stylish seating areas and lawn games.

All the guests, big or small, got into the spirit of the day!

George & James chose a very unique Nomadic Tent for their sit down dinner, which was styled with colourful bunting, fairy lights and white lanterns. The long tables had taupe clothes and jute runners, with bright pops of floral colour and layers of vintage flatware, and artfully mismatched chairs & cushions for a fun whimsical feel. The richly coloured casual posies of flowers were piled into an eclectic assortment of jars, bottles, tins & teapots, and the whole effect was finished with the soft glow of tealights.

We knew that with this couple, the bridal waltz was going to be anything but ordinary…

May we never be too old to share fairy floss with our sweetie pie… x

And as the sun set on the Carnival of George & James, the sparklers were lit and the band began to play… and the real partying began! We wish these two a lifetime of joy, love, fairylights and fairyfloss!! x
