Today, Carmela Weddings unveiled its new branding, and it is magnificent. It totally describes what owners Lisa and Sam are all about and what wonders they can work for your wedding styling when you hire them. Totally up-to-date and contemporary is their style, and actually I’d go further than that to say they’re also damn good at predicting trends and knowing what’s original and up-and-coming rather than just doing what is ‘now’.
I’ve seen their work in action when we collaborated on a styled shoot (sneak peek below – the bride with the tall hair!), and I was in awe of their ideas, their logistical organisation (flawless), their nonstop hard work on the day, and their vision. In a word, they were incredible; a dream team. I knew I had met some very special wedding stylists.
Plus they’re a great laugh and don’t flap at anything! If you’re looking for a team with fashion and style in their hearts, who can relieve you of practical worries, and keep you smiling on the day itself, while delivering wedding styling that is inspired and beautiful, stop looking because I’ve found you the perfect duo. Plus they’re offering Way Out Wedding readers a discount – woohoo!! See further down this post for details.
Come and meet them and check out the wedding gorgeousness they produce like it’s second nature…
All About Carmela Weddings
“We’re Sam and Lisa, a husband and wife wedding planning team. We’ve been planning weddings for three years, but have just relaunched as we realised there were certain types of wedding we loved working on and so wanted to show those couples we’re there for them! We love working with couples that want luxury but don’t want to compromise on style and having things their way. We love a warehouse wedding or a unique venue, and we love working with fashion-forward couples that like a design-led wedding! We take our cues from the word of art, fashion, design and style to plan our couples’ weddings.
“When we’re not working, we’re usually at gigs (Sam is a guitarist in a band), watching films (Lisa is a complete movie buff!) or travelling. We love really cool cities like Vegas, Miami and Barcelona!
“We love events and have always worked on them, but with weddings it’s more special because there’s such emotion involved! I love working out how we can show the couple’s personalities and loves in their day, but still keep it stylish and luxurious. It’s great fun!
“We think you’ll love what we do because readers of Way Out Wedding refuse to be forced into a tradition that doesn’t suit them! We say make your own traditions, do things your way. You don’t have to compromise on having a beautiful luxury wedding just because you want to do it differently. There are so many beautiful venues out there now that cater for different types of weddings – did we mention we love a warehouse!!
“What are we most proud of in our business so far? Our bravery! It was a really hard decision to rebrand to a very niche client. We were doing really well, and planning lots of weddings each year, but we realised we really wanted to concentrate on the cooler, design-led, modern weddings. That obviously cuts down the number of potential clients, but we love couples like this so much that it’s worth it.
“We have two tips for your readers! Grooms, get involved. It really will bring a new dimension to your wedding! Not all of your guests are women, so your view really counts. Secondly, don’t try to do everything. Less can be more stylish. Pick 2-3 priorities and go to town on them, but stay simple with the rest!”

Our inspirations come from… the world of art, design and fashion.
Our business name is Carmela Weddings because… I’m (Lisa) half Maltese and it’s my middle name!
We set it up because… there was such a gap out there for our fun hipster couples who still wanted luxury.
