The Cove Wedding open day was recently held over two days on the weekend of the 3rd & 4th August, as part of the South Coast Wedding Fair, Wedding Trail.
Our guests, couples, those dreaming, the ones planning and the curious came and experienced the magic of what a wedding at The Cove could look and feel like. With our chilled out coastal vibes and whimsical bush and beach back drops, they seen and felt it all - from sand in their toes, sea breeze through their hair, sun kissing their skin, the sound track of native animals and waves crashing, with the fire pits roaring, sun and stars shining. There was live music, food, and onsite wedding vendors sharing their creative talents, talking all things YOUR vision for YOUR magical moment. Collectively we created an epic weekend of wedding goodness with ceremony and reception set ups and soo much more!
Creative and Floral Genius Gypsy Carmen was on site sharing her impeccable style and skills when it comes to all things floristry. We are here to share a sneak peak into what she created for The Cove Wedding Open Weekend and everything you need to know when it comes to Gypsy Carmen.
Tell us a little about Gypsy Carmen
Gypsy Carmen is a studio based wedding florist located in Huskisson - Our style is eclectic and best described as COASTAL LUXE. We are a full service florist, which means, we've got this. We love taking on the rewarding challenge of bringing together all your ideas and transforming them into a stunning reality in line with the seasons, the colour scheme and the general aesthetic of your event, from start to finish. We try to be as transparent as possible and energetically work to deliver the highest quality product whilst still maintaining integrity to your budget and style. We are constantly inspired by natural surrounds and so love to incorporate Australian natives amongst lush seasonal features. All of our ingredients are sourced from the Sydney Flower Markets and after 10 years in the industry, creative director and owner Clare, has an eye for quality and for the unique.
What is the process for those wanting you to share your skills and their vision?
The best way to start an enquiry with Gypsy Carmen is to fill out the enquiry form via the website. This helps us create a first draft quote which is emailed along with a copy of our Terms and Conditions. We work with you to ensure our proposal reflects your personal style, meets logistical requirements + matches your ideal budget. This process can sometimes take a little bit of time as we like to arrange a phone + swap images and inspiration to ensure everything is perfect. Once the quote is accepted, an invoice for the 20% deposit is sent through. This secures your date with us. We are available for unlimited consultation prior to the wedding and touch base with all our couples along the way. Adjustments can be made up to two weeks prior to the wedding, with full payment required by this time too. Site visits are complimentary once a deposit is secured, alternatively a site visit can be arranged outside of a booking for an additional fee. We handle everything floral related so clean up etc is all taken care of us by us too!
Tell us about your vision for your set up at The Cove
We created a dreamy, bohemian space with soft tones and feminine features.Our ceiling installation was earthy and sculptural. This was contrasted with luxe, creamy rose arrangements on the tables in dusky pink tones.
