Jasmine & Alistair’s Posh and Pretty Art Gallery Wedding


Heide Museum of Modern Art Wedding

Jasmine and Alistair are both architects so it’s no surprise that their wedding was a mixture of chic, elegant and artistic details. Even their choice in ceremony and reception venues — St. Heliers Street Gallery at the Abbotsford Convent and the Heide Museum of Modern Art — reflected their love for art. There were two parts to their celebration with the first involving a Chinese tea ceremony to honor Jasmine’s heritage. Their wedding also included personal DIY touches such as the brooch bouquet and thumbprint photo poster Jasmine made herself, and the beautiful paper flower ceremony backdrop which friends of the couple helped make.

We have the always-amazing Lakshal Perera (aka Lucky — see his previously featured work + BTL interview) to thank for the breathtaking photos. Here they are without further ado.

You’re now about to witness the second part of this lovely couple’s wedding but before I show you the rest of the eye candy, please meet the beautiful Jasmine. She’s here to tell you a little bit about herself and Alistair as well as take you through their wedding details:

My husband and I met at work. We’re both architects so we see each other all the time, which has its advantages and disadvantages. We were together for about 6 years before we got engaged, I know him better than I know myself. So when he was all nervous and acting strange the day he proposed, I knew something was up!

We had lots of lovely friends and family come over and help make the flowers for our wedding ceremony backdrop, and they liked that they got to be involved with the wedding. I also made my own brooch bouquet, inspired by the beautiful creations on etsy.

We tried to find a theme initially because that’s what all the wedding blogs was telling us. But we couldn’t seem to settle on any, and we thought the theme would develop as the planning went on. It never really did in the end, but we also realized we didn’t need a theme. The wedding was quite simply  a reflection of us! We wanted our ceremony to be fun and laid back, and the reception to be intimate and elegant.

We had a photo of us taken from our engagement session made into a stamp. The stamp was used in the invitations, place cards, and matchboxes for the sparkler exit at the end of the night. I also Photoshopped another engagement photo and used that as the background for our fingerprint guestbook.

Advice from newlyweds:

Choose your vendors wisely because you would be putting a lot of trust into them to perform on the day! We hadn’t heard our string quartet play live, or know exactly what our flowers were going to look like, but we made sure we were familiar with their work and chose vendors that understood us the most.
