Working alongside Designer Julio Himede and the fabulous people of Team Event, Natalie was the Art Director of this larger than life Wedding held on Sydney’s Cockatoo Island. The function was a weekend long event consisting of the ceremony, cocktail drinks, a banquet reception, campfire after-party and finishing with a campsite breakfast.
Natalie was charged with sourcing the decor and detailed elements from custom-designed napkins to hanging memory tags to taxidermy birds and nautical themed treasures. She also hand-made the entree card holders, name-tags and table numbers, as well as overseeing and coordinating the art install and bump out.
