Botanical Melbourne Wedding at Glasshaus Inside

When Lisa realized her dream of being surrounded by lush plants and fabulous floral installations would bust her and Michael’s wedding budget, her solution to find a venue with lots of greenery and plants led them to Glasshaus Inside. The venue, which is a florist shop during the day and an event space at night, featured floor-to-ceiling plants, exposed brick walls, and lots of natural sunlight, which gave the couple the natural and botanical vibes they wanted. We love that Lisa let her inner garden fairy elegance shine in a whimsical and bohemian-inspired Rue De Seine gown. Free the Bird captured every detail of this wedding beautifully, especially the sweet ceremony moments that included the couple’s dog!

The Couple:

Lisa and Michael

The Wedding:

Burnley Gardens and Glasshaus Inside, Melbourne, Australia

Michael wore an M.J Bale blazer and Aquila chinos, put together by stylist Maurizo at Myer. We couldn’t sing higher praises for Maurizio; he was so much fun to work with! The groomsmen wore various shades and patters of blue and teal, brown leather shoes, beige chino’s and navy leather belts (varying brands from Myer).

I wore the Zeppelin gown by Rue De Seine. I had so much fun wearing this gown! The way the dress moved and the large bell sleeves were my favorite parts.

We personalised our ceremony by having our beautiful dog (Nullah) with us; he comes with us everywhere and so it was strange imagine the day without him. Many family and friends were sceptical of this decision, as our beloved Nullah can be a little boisterous at times! While he may have had a few treats here and there, he sat a looked lovely with his emerald green bow tie and barked at all the right times, I think our guests were looking at him more than us!

Nullah aside, we wrote our own vows which also made our Ceremony extra memorable and will keep copies of these to read in years to come. We were also blessed with our celebrant, Meg Marshall, who is dog obsessed, as well! She was key in helping our ceremony run smoothly!

Working with Jai from Free The Bird Photography was an absolute joy. For me, I am not good with having a camera in my face and I was very worried about this. In all honesty, I rarely knew he was there which meant he was able to capture the candid moments just perfectly. Jai is very laid back which can help bring a relaxed mood when needed when those pre wedding nerves are high!

Growing up I have always loved plants and playing in the garden. I wanted to be surrounded by greenery, but I knew getting the floral installations I required was going to cost several thousand dollars – dollars I didn’t want to spend! I actually stumbled across Glasshaus Inside and it turned out to be everything I had dreamed it would be! Exposed brick walls, lovely bulb like lighting, exposed beams, concrete floors, and indoor plants scattered from floor to ceiling.
