An arts centre that now doubles as one of Melbourne’s most unique wedding venues, Laura and Paul were drawn to The Substation for their big day because of it’s contemporary yet rustic vibe.
It was also a space that allowed them the flexibility to bring in their own stylists, caterers and entertainment. It was a huge task that Laura says wouldn’t have been possible without wedding planning extraordinaires Will and Jac but one that was certainly worth it in the end. And luckily, Allsorts Pictures were on hand to capture all the beauty.
We chatted to Laura to get the rundown.
What sort of vibe were you aiming to create for the day?
Industrial chic, laid back, and rustic.
What advice would you give to other couples leading up to their big day?
Plan early, get wedding planners and have an awesome maid of honour! And begin with a low budget because it only gets bigger as you find wonderful things to add to your wedding. Also, I highly recommend a cheese wheel cake, everyone loved finishing the night with a glass of wine in hand while grazing on delicious cheese.
What does marriage mean to you?
A commitment to one person for the rest of your life, everlasting love.
What was your favourite moment on your wedding day?
Dancing with Paul and making it a party to celebrate our love. Seeing everyone happy made me ecstatic!
First dance song?
All Of Me – Madison Bailey and Jason Chen.
