Chandelabra, The Wedding Stylist is a boutique design & styling company owned and run by Kerri Sharp. We offer design, creative direction and styling services. My signature look is romantic, timeless elegance and refined details coupled with a warm atmosphere, textures and a considered colour palette. Typically romantic, I immerse myself in my clients love stories as the driving force behind my design work and creation of beautiful events.
Hi, I’m Kerri, your wedding planner and stylist. I have always had a love affair with romance and beauty. Starting out in the beauty industry , hairdressing was my first love, this is where I learnt the art of reading minds! I am a good listener and very skilled at interpreting what my clients want to create for their weddings and events.
In 2004 when I founded Chandelabra, it was born from a dream of having the most beautiful, romantic style store that had gorgeous homewares and gifts, but more than that, it was an experience for my clients to enjoy and make them smile. The dream was fulfilled as I lost count of the number of times I was told what a beautiful store it was, and how many Mums and Dads were dragged in to the “pink “ shop by their little girls ( and a few brave boys!).
I believe that it’s important to change and grow constantly. So when weddings came to me, I rose to the challenge. They were a natural extension for me, creating a wedding from start to finish is what I have always done from the beginning. I am a perfectionist, ( control freak? ) It’s vital to me to maintain the flow and the original concept of our weddings , always referring back to the original notes that I make when I first meet with “my” Brides and Grooms. Things may get tweaked along the way, but that initial meeting is where I believe we get to the heart of the wedding. So, a year or so down the track, when they finally walk into their ceremony and reception, they will immediately feel that’s it’s a true representation of them as a couple and feel comfortable and at ease and above all happy!
The wedding industry is a fast paced and constantly changing area, and that’s what I love about it. Keeping abreast of the new trends , without following them blindly, whilst maintaining my signature romantic style is a must.
I am so happy and honoured when I see so many of my previous couples pop up on my social media , still supporting me well after their weddings! I love to see the babies popping up and the exciting new lives they are living!
Last but not least I couldn’t do it at all without a loyal and talented team that are involved in all aspects of our weddings. Working alongside our florists, on the day coordinator, and stylists is what keeps me loving what I do.
My husband and children , my dogs and all dogs, laughing, coffee, yoga, makeup and beauty products, friends, my home, watching crime shows, talking, eating cake, ( excelling at these last two!), cooking cakes, health, giving advice if its asked for mostly, music, holidays with friends.
Integrity, honesty, ethics, respect, being friendly, flexibility. Under promise and over deliver.
We love talking all things weddings and events!
