Hana + Ben
There is something beautifully enchanting about Hana and Ben’s whimsical Lauren’s Hall wedding. The venue, a working furniture workshop gave an industrial blank canvas feel to the wedding day, but the special stories (like the groom’s serenade) are what completely added the magic. Hana and Ben chose Ali Bailey to photograph their wedding day.
Hana and Ben held both their ceremony and reception at Laurens Hall, North Melbourne, Hana telling, “Both our ceremony and reception were held at the magnificent and characterful Laurens Hall. It is a recycled timber workshop and was the original Railways Printing Works in the industrial part of North Melbourne. The space is lovingly curated by Charles who makes beautiful furniture and now hosts all sorts of events on site. A number of our guests commented that the venue touched on all the senses, which is a part of its charm.”
Guests enjoyed a sit down meal catered by Ed Dixon Food Design , Hana noting, “We were both impressed with our celebrant Sian Holm and our caterer Ed Dixon Food Design (thank you in particular to Gabby) as well as with Charles and Mary of Laurens Hall. They are both so refreshingly authentic and worked very closely with us to make our wedding the unique experience that it was.”
