Ashleigh held her gorgeous kitchen tea at her parents’ property in Camden, Sydney.
Being a florist and stylist herself meant this celebration was always going to be a beautiful affair, and with the help of Ashleigh’s event-coordinator sister, Kaitlin, everything on the day came together seamlessly.
‘My favourite part of the event was having all my favourite ladies together in one spot, basking in the sunshine, sangria in hand. What could be better?’ said Ashleigh.
‘It’s a family joke that I collect life-size cutouts of celebrities – I don’t; once I got my husband a giant Tim Cahill, his man crush, and I may have acquired one of Niall from One Direction in my travels,’ said Ashleigh.
‘So we incorporated celebrity cardboard cutouts into the event and we ordered/invited Bradley Cooper, Zac Efron, Ben Affleck and James Franco. The cutout ‘guests’ were used as husbands in the photo booth, with the option to dress up in my mum’s 1980s wedding dress, a bridesmaid’s dress and hat from the 1970s and bridesmaid’s dresses with matching bouquets that my sister and I wore way back when. It was hilarious and created loads of amazing photo opportunities.’
