Behind every beautiful bride and groom-to-be is something quite special – that is a given. A glimpse into that dimension is rare however, but as wedding engineers – we receive instant access into the lives of some exceptional people. It’s a privilege that is earned and never taken for granted.
Throughout our dealings with Sami and Andrew. We were privy to more than just the planning of their wedding day. Over twelve months, we met with Sami at some pretty ‘cross-road’ moments. Buying a house, moving jobs, new jobs, adapting to a new ‘island’ way of living as well and of course planning their very own destination wedding in Byron Bay.
Hindsight is a beautiful thing as they say – but we had no doubt that we would look back on this wedding with fond memories. Sami and Andrew were one of the first clients to have taken a chance on us. In our initial stages of starting up we were of course thrilled (and nervous) when Sami decided she wanted us to help plan her special day.
From finding the venue in Byron Bay; dress-shopping and the fittings that proceeded at the divine seventh floor of David Jones to meeting her very fun and laid back family to flying up to Byron Bay and sharing a glass of bubbly the day before the wedding overlooking the stunning Byron Bay beach backdrop. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a more relaxed couple. Ever.
Sami is one client and friend we will very much remember as one of the first believing in us when we were just starting out. Thank You!!!
At WHITE RABBIT PROJECTS we have been known to get a wee bit restless from time-to-time (kids at heart much did you say?). We also love nothing more than pushing the envelope when it comes to creating new and exciting ‘visuals’ that a) excite us as producers and stylists and b) inspire you (our clients) to think outside of the square – whether it’s your Engagement, Wedding, Private Party or next Birthday Party to remember – make it count, make it unique and for god sake – dare to be different darling!
Recently (in the world of events and interiors) the world can’t seem to get enough of “Rustic”. The trend has been beautifully coveted in a plethora of wedding and event blogs and publications, why, WHITE RABBIT PROJECTS even found itself fall victim to it and boy what a ride it was and continuous to be.
The timeless trend is something we will never tire of – we still love it as if it was only born yesterday.
Now we want to turn your attention to a new trend – “Why, it’s all the rage my dear. Haven’t you heard?”. She goes by the name of ‘Industrial chic’.
If you’ve been privy to such fit-outs favoured by; The Grounds of Alexandria, Kitchen by Mike, QT Hotel, The Royal Hall of Industries, Carriage Works and our favourite haunt of late, the fabulous Canalside Interiors – this trend might be right up your alley.
For those with a little less time on their hands to research said stomping grounds; It’s like Mr Romantic met Ms Parisian Chic and decided to adopt Dame Bold Colour Palette. Still not following? Imagine Kate Moss collaborated with Kate Middleton and McQueen to create their very own Entertainment range – this would be it!
With Industrial chic being showcased on many a stage worldwide of late – we set ourselves to work for our recent shoot and changed things up quite dramatically (within reason of course!). The aim? To create a romantic setting that paid homage to the industrial trend itself. One that pushed us as producers and stylists. We certainly did step outside of our comfort zone, but boy was it worth it.
Thanks to our supreme dream team here at WHITE RABBIT PROJECTS and our three furry rabbit-friends (Yes there were real live rabbits on set this time!) – after much hair-pulling and sleepless nights spent mood-boarding and conceptualising; are now thrilled to share with you our new look and vision for 2014!
We hope you love it as much as the bucket loads of fun we had putting it together!

It was a sun-filled day in October 2013 at Milton Park in the Southern Highlands where Lisa-Shae and Scott chose to say their vows in front of close family and friends. Guests gathered to watch the intimate ceremony under a beautiful handmade birch-arch canopy. It was as the perfect setting for the perfect pair.
White Rabbit Projects was behind-the-scenes and enjoyed every moment of the preparations in the lead up to their big day. Months of planning went into the execution of Mr and Mrs Coulton’s Wedding Day and the end result was that which can only be described as a fairytale.
Our favourite moment was seeing Lisa-Shae and Scott enjoy their first dance under the beautiful chandelier which was transported all the way from Sydney and here we share with you a sneak-peak of the day in all it’s glory.
If we could do it all over again – we would not hesitate. All the best to Mr and Mrs Coulton and a big thank you for supporting White Rabbit Projects and sharing these beautiful images captured by At Dusk.

When a girl gets married, apparently she is required (by Law) to put a little bit more effort than simply updating her status on social media to make it, like totally official. By constituting a formal name change, apparently Facebook alone does not count. Fact.
To be perfectly blunt with you. The number one reason I haven’t rushed out (until now) with my marriage certificate proclaiming my new marital status is because, well, quite frankly – running a business and juggling a thing called ‘life’ are just two darn precious for me to take-five out from. Champagne anyone?
So, to all you little Mrs “I’m just too busy being busy”; if spending countless hours re-connecting with every single government body you ever had the pleasure of dealing with from day ‘birth’, then you need to meet Easy Name Change like yesterday.
