We love this girl. Emma Bergmeier, now Bergmeier-Varian (!), is a friend indeed to First Comes Love. She is a Renaissance woman – stylist, producer, art director, event planner, journalist and blogger extraordinaire. She is the dab hand behind Dropstitch, an agency dedicated to the art direction and production of fashion photoshoots, as well as the planning and styling of oh-so-stylish events such as parades, parties and weddings. In fact, she’s the whirlwind behind our own First Comes Love fashion parades.
So, what happens when a stylish gal like Emma falls in love with a dashing designer such as Tom? Well, do take a peek at Emma and Tom’s perfect art deco do.
Set against the backdrop of the superb art deco architecture of Mt Lawley Bowling Club, Emma and Tom celebrated their nuptials with an eclectic mix of handmade, remade, vintage and upcycled goods sourced from various nooks around the city. A highlight was the wedding dress made from daisy lace, which had been salvaged from an op-shop by Kate and Erin – those clever dames from On a Whim.
Weddings without flowers are like Beatles without bowl cuts. And thanks to their family and friends there was a sea of flowers on every table. But the pièce de résistance was the pretty posies perfectly perched upon Emma’s head as part of her stunning floral garland.
