Imagine you’re standing in the middle of a beautiful field of lavender. Breathe in that wonderful aroma. Relax. That’s it…
Sounds like a nice meditation, right? Well, for Georgia and Richie, it was the setting for their Jewish wedding. Seriously. Check out the stunning photos by Stewart Leishman for proof.
The crazy thing is, the epic setting isn’t even the coolest thing about this wedding (though it’s definitely pretty awesome). We’re mostly obsessed with how interior architect Georgia (she runs Studio Ezra and Tiles of Ezra) incorporated her design sensibilities into the big day.
For starters, there’s the chuppah. The bride came up with the design for the simple wooden structure draped in garlands of blue hydrangea and the most exquisite ropes of bright orange marigold. It’s truly a stunner, from the unlikely juxtaposition of colors to the distinctive lines, and one unlike any chuppah we’ve seen before. The story of how – and why- the marigolds reached the venue is pretty amazing, too.
Even the floor of the chuppah reflected Georgia’s style – she had custom handmade tiles by her company Tiles of Ezra to line the bottom of the structure. The tiles even included the couple’s Hebrew names!
And did we mention that Georgia designed her own dress in collaboration with Craig Braybrook? We can’t get enough of the elegant lines and fun burst of tulle at the bottom of the mermaid-style skirt.
Georgia, the bride: The ceremony was held in Daylesford at the magnificent Swiss Italian Lavandula Farm. My rich love of Europe, having lived in Valencia, Spain, drew me to the farm, as it was reminiscent of this authentic European landscape and lifestyle. It was the perfect scene for one of the most important days in our lives.
