Piccolo & Poppi is a boutique styling company, specialising in floral design and event styling. After working at Cosmopolitan Bride magazine, Ashleigh, owner and head stylist, decided to delve into the event world, specialising primarily in weddings. Ashleigh and her team can create a wanderlust of beauty at your wedding, from fresh flowers to a treasure trove of candle lit perfection. 

Based in Sydney, Piccolo & Poppi travel south to the gorgeous rolling hills of Berry and beyond, the tree-lined streets of the southern highlands, north to the coastal beauty that is the central coast as well as to the west and east! They can cover any area in NSW, and can offer a huge hire range as well inclusive of chairs, tables, props, hanging goodies and bits ‘n bobs? Plus, they deliver! 

We sat down with Piccolo & Poppi and asked them a couple of questions recently, so that we could share Ashleigh and her genius with our Groom + Guy gang. Here’s what she had to say… 

How would you describe your style? 

“We like to cater to all styles, however, the majority of our clients tend to vibe the bohemian rustic style, which can be complimented with modern touches.” 

Tell us some of the current trends in wedding styling? 

“Botanical is a must-have at the moment. Pantone released their colour for 2017, and it's green, so the botanical, tropical style is making a large appearance. We love working with lots of foliage and leafy greens, so it suits us really well.” 

Whether planning for an intimate gathering or grand event, single out some specific details that you pay attention to in helping create a more personal feel? 

“It all comes down to the smaller items, like signage, place cards and small centrepiece touches. We always get clients who want to incorporate something significant in their styling, so we often incorporate these symbolic and personal items into the smaller details on the tabletop, and signage around the wedding.” 

Where do you look for inspiration (what inspires you)? 

“Pinterest is my absolute secret obsession! Say no more!” 

So if you’re looking for bohemian, botanical and just plain flat our beautiful style for your upcoming wedding, Ashleigh and the team at Piccolo & Poppi are the perfect team for you!
