emily and ed – a stylist’s vision brought to life

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!”
