Event and interior stylist Emily Sarks’ wedding to her beau Ed was an absolutely flawless one. From the dress (she made it herself!) to the invitations and event design – Emily created a truly perfect event. They wanted their wedding to feel like “Christmas day lunch but on a bigger scale” and surrounded by their closest friends and family with Lara Hotz there to capture it, it certainly was!
From Emily – “I was careful not to make it too girly or kitsch and I ran all of my ideas by Ed. We only went ahead with them once I got his tick of approval. We organized the whole thing together!
Our friend’s Mum gave us a valuable piece of advice – she said, “coming home to a clean house is as good as a honeymoon.” We didn’t take our honeymoon straight after the wedding, so we hired a cleaner to come that afternoon and after our reception we came home to a spotless house. It was awesome!”
