Choosing a vendor to work with on THE biggest day of your life is harder than you think. To find what you are looking for, what you never knew you were looking for and a style that is just right for you is a hard task. Add in that a vendor like L.L works extremely closely with each client, so making sure your personalities align, making you feel comfortable, free of anxiety and confident to ask anything to, it is a hard task.

When an L.L Bride comes to us, we can just tell. We get a feeling, every time. These women are special. They are unique, and they have a cool factor like no other.

We wanted you to hear their stories, their journeys and how they came to be, an L.L Bride to be.

Currently, what is the biggest struggle you are having with the wedding planning process?

The biggest struggle I am currently having is probably my time management. It seems like every night all I do when I come home from work is sit on my laptop and email people or look up inspiration on Pinterest etc. I can totally see why people hire a planner so they can have a good life balance and not fall behind on the growing pile of unfolded washing while they plan a wedding. Doesn’t help that I only had 6 months tho plan the thing 🤪.

What made you decide to work with L.L?

The initial attraction to LL hire was there amazing product (in particular ghost chairs and clear marquee), reasonable prices and the fact they would deliver all the way to Taranaki!! What sealed the deal was when I had a phone call with Lucy and automatically had a good feeling about going with LL. She is super easy to get along with and goes out of her way to answer all your questions and solve any problems

Are you focussed on a trend when it comes to your styling, or are you looking for classic.
What is defining your style for your wedding day?

I am definitely going for a modern/classic/simple style for my wedding. I am not the most creative person so keeping it simple with colours and styling made planning a whole lot easier. Ll hire has the most beautiful, classic pieces in their range which fits perfectly with the style I want to achieve.

Colour is such an epic way to tie in your style, your personality and have a little fun. With a base of timeless furniture, adding colour can create talking points and excite your guests, it doesn’t need to be scary or overwhelming. No matter what, you do NOT need to stick to tradition.

L.L BRIDE -ERIN

We always feel like when an L.L brides chooses to work with our team, magic happens and it is all meant to be. Meeting Erin and Scott, their families and being apart of their wedding day in Reporoa, Bay of Plenty was all apart of that magic.

THE PLANNING PROCESS
How did you tackle the overwhelming nature of planning your wedding? Did you do it yourself, hire a stylist, incorporate friends and family?

My close friend had got married one year and one day before mine and she left everything to the last minute even with two years to plan so I knew I had to knuckle down and get it all done as I had only 13 months to organise. I started with all the BIG things first- location, photographer, celebrant, furniture etc and then I did a month by month checklist. It made the whole process enjoyable and easy.

I did it ALL myself- the planning anyways. When I say I'm a control freak, i mean it... but at least I'm very self aware about it right?! I certainly bounced off people and used them as my sounding board just so I could have someone confirm that my ideas were 'cool'. I also had a lot of people give me advice but sometimes you just have to ignore it and go with your gut.


ON THE DAY
What was one thing you did on the day of wedding that helped you to stay calm & focused on the real reason of the day and take it all in.

Well, I did all my bridesmaids hair and make up which is one of my favourite things to do so I was perfectly calm.... Until I put on my wedding dress and got into the car. Luckily it was a 30 min drive to the location where i could panic and have my maid of honour remind me that I'm "always right" and that I know what i'm doing. My photographer got in the car down the road from the location and gave me a cold bottle of water and a snack so it gave me time to gather my thoughts and calm down. My celebrant also met me at the car when we got there and gave me updates and gave me a few minutes before the whole thing started. Obviously getting married is scary... even though you know that your person is at the end of the isle waiting for you but for me, everything just disappeared as soon as I got up to the arch with him in front of me. I was instantly calm and didn't even fumble through my vows. So there wasn't any special trick or anything for me.

BUDGET
Did you start the wedding planning with a budget? How did you stick to it, or didn’t you?

Oh. My God. Naive little Erin thought she could plan a wedding for around $10k....considering we didn't have to pay for our photographer (In laws gift to us) or our venue (my dad's home along the Waikato river where I grew up) but we more than doubled it. I just had an idea of how I wanted my wedding to look and didn't stop at anything to ensure that it happened. It's only happens once right?! I always made sure I had a budget/total of all costs at all times so I could make sure I knew what I still needed to pay for and whatnot but clearly did not stick to our initial target.


STYLE
How did you define your style for your wedding day? Where did you go to for inspiration?

I pulled inspiration from only the coolest wedding magazines, Pinterest, LL's instagram feed, and the place I grew up. I knew I wanted an 'eco-friendly' wedding so I made sure all my decorations were biodegradable and foraged which made it feel more like it was one of a kind. I had a vision of natural/raw woods, foraged greenery and soft lighting. The "perfect wedding" that I initially wanted, evolved over the planning period and became beyond anything I could have ever imagined. It turned into the perfect wedding. I think it couldn't have been as good as it was without my sister. Combined, we are a design powerhouse (I think so anyways) and we literally did all the styling during the week leading up to the wedding. My incredible brother and husband did all the foraging and we just chose what look best laying on the tables. We just did what felt and looked right. But seriously though, LL's instagram is some serious wedding inspo!!

What would be your ONE piece of advice to future L.L Brides?

Stick to your guns. This is your day- not anyone else's (well, except your husband's) so plan to your own ethos. Everyone loves putting in their two cents worth and there will always be someone who thinks they know everything about weddings since they got married back in 1975, so don't be afraid to tell Aunt Linda to take a seat. My best advice would be to invite who you and your husband want to invite... Don't let anyone force you into inviting your cousin's partner who have been dating for two weeks that you've never met... Trust me, it happens.

MR AND MRS HAYES

TE AKAU

WAIKATO

We couldn’t have loved working with Julia-Rose more leading up to her wedding day. She had a very clear vision, a strong style aesthetic and the kindest nature, which is an incredible combination.
Our 10 x 20m Clear Marquee was the perfect base for her dream day.
Sitting amongst their family property in Te Akau, Waikato, our Clear Marquee was a striking feature, filled with white, pink and green florals and chic, modern white & clear furniture pieces.
When hiring your clear marquee, layout is so important, so we work very closely with each client, to create a floor plan that works perfect for your guest number, furniture and also a clear wet weather plan, because you ALWAYS need a back up.

Clients like Julia-Rose & Hamish make our job a dream.

”We used Lucy and the team at LL for a family wedding in March. Not only Lucy but her team are absolutely outstanding, always going the extra mile. We hired numerous items but the highlight was the high quality clear marquee which now our business will be using for future events. We can't thank you enough Lucy, Joe and team for making our event possible, you are an outstanding team, always welcoming and nothing is impossible for LL. We really felt apart of the LL family. THANK YOU.”

CLEAR MARQUEE HIRE

When hiring a big ticket item like a marquee comes with a lot of questions.

It’s an investment, a big decision and a huge relief all in one, so here are a few questions that are regulars on our emails, to hopefully give you a little more insight into booking a clear marquee with LL.

How hot does a clear marquee get?

Like any marquee, they heat with sun and body heat, but when hiring a clear marquee with LL, you can be assured that due to the high quality of our manufacturers, our marquees are UV resistant to the highest degree.

We also include a marquee cover with every marquee, so vendors such as your florist and caterers can prepare your special day without being in direct sunlight.

To create airflow, all the walls of the marquee can also be raised and lowered easily. We specifically asked for our walls to all be able to roll and clip at the top, to create a streamline and clear look, instead of bunching like curtains. Making the entire marquee look cleaner and mess free.

Do you travel? What are the costs to deliver outside of Tauranga?

Yes! LL travel north island wide.

We design each clear marquee quote for your specific requests and travel, so the best way to determine your delivery coatings.

Do you have flooring options?

Good question! YES!

LL now carries a range of white wood panel flooring. We chose this to ensure a non slip, non glare flooring option.

You can create a full floor, half floor or dance floor with our flooring.

When do you set up? How long does it take?

We love to work around our clients, so we find a Wednesday or Thursday before their wedding day works best. This gives our clients time and a non stress environment to style, set up and change their floor plans and style options.

Once our team arrives on site, set up of your marquee takes between 4-5 hours and takes a team of 4.

Our team is efficient and experienced. They follow a strict health and safety guideline and have all been trained to the highest degree, to ensure the best for each client.

What are your lighting options?

All our clear marquees come with the option of over 150m of marquee grade LED festoon lighting.

These are installed by our team, and can be strung to the lighting design of each individual client.

LIGHT

Lighting is sometimes a thought left much too late. 
It is so important, it creates a mood, a feeling and a ambiance. 

The use of candles & festoons can bring together a look so beautifully as you move from day to night time.

You do not need to overcrowd your table. Gone are the elaborate and overdone table settings, and we are seeing a really beautiful trend of minimal, clean yet beautiful styling with key colours and elements.

There is no need to be boring, but an over cluttered space leaves your guests feeling awkward while trying to eat their meal, and takes away from the overall goal and to highlight your style.

HOW TO : CEREMONY SEATING

PLEASE! Do not think you have to be traditional with ceremony seating. Well, you can, but think outside the box a little. There is more than one option. 

Think about texture, colour & tones, placement and location. 

Make your guests gasp when they walk into your ceremony setting.
