collaboration with Stewart Leishman for Wedding Nouveau

We're so pleased to finally share these with you!

We have been looking for the perfect project to collaborate with the amazingly talented photographer Stewart Leishman for a little while now, and when the lovely Fri from Wedding Nouveau asked us to contribute to their Fall 'Playhouse' issue, we knew we had found it!

We were asked to create a dessert tablescape that was influenced by childhood fantasy. So we loosely took the theme of the story of Little Red Riding Hood and its German/French origins, and ran with it! Traditional German sweets like lebkuchen (spiced cookies), bienentsich (bee sting cake - which is DELICIOUS!), black forest cake, and classic donuts, teamed with a gorgeous centrepiece cake to create a lush dessert landscape. The stationery was based around a traditional papercut which told a typical 'boy meets girl' story. And our little matching favours sewn into sweet little glassine bags are a nice little take-home treat!

Working with Stewart was a great experience and a really fun morning in the Dandenongs on a rather chilly wintery morning! Thank you so much Stewart for interpreting our story so well!!

We are also giving away a digital copy of Wedding Nouveau's Fall issue, so be sure to check out our earlier post on how to enter - the competition closes on October 16th so hop to it!

Happy weekend!

Everything looks perfect :3 I want a wedding like that!! The food sounds very yummy. I went to Germany last month, but I did not eat those, just marzipan and dark chocolate.
