To create the wedding of your dreams, we have enlisted the help of Maddison & Pride to answer some top queries most couples have about their big day. Located in Mosman, Julie Pride runs her luxury events styling business and works on Sydney’s best weddings to create high-end results for her clients.
With locations such as New York’s Plaza Hotel and heroines such as Princess Grace, Maddison & Pride can really make your wedding unforgettable.
How does the styling process work (from start to finish)?
We have an initial meeting with our bride and groom to capture their vision for their wedding, their must haves, dos and don’ts and generally just get to know the couple. We then head back to Maddison & Pride HQ and pull together a mood board based on our styling recommendation for their wedding.
We then re-visit our couple, gain feedback, work on a collaborated vision and once all is approved, our team will source all the styling elements in preparation for the big day. If the couple are interested in our exclusive range of hired luxury linens we ensure that a Maddison & Pride team arrives to work with the venue to ensure the linens are put on the tables and chairs perfectly. We are there with you every step of the way because it’s all in the detail.
What are the easiest ways to add personality to your wedding?
Incorporating quality table linens are the easiest and most effective way to add personality to your wedding without it being overly obvious. We have designed a stunning range of linens that are available to hire which come in gorgeous hues to compliment any venue or wedding style, making this choice easy for brides.
How many colours should make up a ‘colour scheme’, or is it more different shades that make for beautiful styling?
At Maddison & Pride, I start styling with a ‘base’ hue. This is normally selected from our watercolour swatches. It’s important when incorporating colour for your wedding day to think exquisite and refined, opposed to loud and overwhelming.
How can brides add a luxury feel to their weddings without going over budget?
By spending money on bigger items, brides can cover a lot of styling space with big reward. Maddison & Pride bring luxury to weddings in a simple but stunning way. Our hire range of table linen and bespoke chair covers are beautiful and add an exquisite luxury enhancement to any wedding venue.
What are the benefits of bringing a stylist in to do your wedding?
Wedding stylists visualise a space in ways that can transform something ordinary into something stunning. Choosing the right stylist is so important. They should understand what a bride wants and translate that into a welcoming and stunning mood and environment. Maddison & Pride’s experienced stylists look at the entire space and how it can be transformed.
We then bring this to life with styling options for the bride and groom that are exquisite and stunning. We can work with you on the entire event or you can simply hire our luxury linen and chair cover collections. Whatever you choose, you will still experience exceptional service to ensure everything is taken care of prior and on your wedding day.
How can you add depth to a table setting so that guests remember their evening?
Subtle, stunning table linen, matched with gorgeous napkins and bespoke chair covers can really give depth without crowding or taking away from the functionality of a guests table. This luxury linen range is now available for the first time to hire. It really is all about these details that lifts a wedding to another level of luxury for everyone on the day.
