There’s something so beautiful about a bride celebrating her body before her big day. Whether it’s something you keep privately to yourself or share with your partner or even the world. This elegant shoot shows you just how ethereal and enchanting a bridal boudoir shoot can be!

A vision of pure ethereal beauty was the inspiration behind this stunning boudoir shoot. The soft touches of peach amongst the oversized and unstructured floral greenery added a fresh touch to an otherwise elegant and timeless shoot. The clean white space with the crisp white bedding makes this shoot so refreshing – and perfectly suited to share heading into the start of summer.

When moments like these come around where we get to see all the beautiful photos from our bride & groom’s winter wedding, and we get to read the full story, it just makes our hearts swell with joy! Mel’s bridesmaids wore our Signature Multiway gowns in burnt orange and they matched the overall colour palette flawlessly.

Have a quick read of their photographers blog post: Stories With Mel

They shared with me their amazing engagement story — How Mel had just arrived home from the gym thinking they were heading off for a weekend of camping. Matt (who had arrived home earlier, coming straight off night shift), had decorated their bed with flowers and ‘Bonfire Heart’ by James Blunt (their song) was playing. Matt had laid out a dress for Mel to get changed into, along with a letter he had written describing their future and all the things he hoped they would achieve together. The letter finished with inviting Mel into the kitchen, where she found the room full of balloons and photographs of all the memories from their past that they had already made together. Mel then found one last note that said “Go outside to our present, will you marry me?”, where he was waiting for Mel on one knee. 

Matt and Mel chose Wallalong House for their day, as it had a story of its own that they could share with their friends and family. I think I had to pick my jaw up off the ground a few times. Everywhere you looked there were beautiful backgrounds. The breathtaking views across the farmlands provided the perfect backdrop for the ceremony, which was held beneath the 190+ year old fig trees on the property.

Mel loves a good DIY and created the designs for their stationery, she put together the gifts for their guests, and handmade the incredible fur shawls for her bridesmaids (which were later referenced to Game of Thrones by the bridal party).

Matt and Mel truly are a special couple and that was well reflected by the loving atmosphere of their family and friends. Three of the longest tables I have ever seen were filled with their nearest and dearest (Rowlo’s Ruckus, Krazy Kota’s and M&M’s all sorts). They were so appreciative of having so many of their loved ones join them to celebrate.

Mel’s Dad started his speech with a line that I won’t forget;
“I am Mel’s Dad. The happiest Dad.”
Both Matt and Mel’s Father’s gave touching speeches about how proud they were of Matt and Mel, and all they have achieved professionally and together as a couple.

(we’re not crying, YOUR crying)

Set in rural Queensland, the delicate “Twigs of Pink” was styled by photographer, Katherine Bailey of Twig and Fawn Photography. Inspired by her love of the Japanese Cherry Blossom, and the Australian outback – she conveys her love of Kintsugi to the shoot, captivating every detail, with these very talented vendors to help create this dreamy shoot.

Katherine started up by teaming up with Jessica and Bindy from New England Flower Co., who created an oversized cherry blossom dream bouquet. Sized at 1m in width, this gorgeous bouquet featured, the  Japanese blossom and intertwined with magnolia branch and pink thyrptomene, an Australian wildflower.

The same tantalising florals were used to create the buttonhole to adorn the masculine suit worn by Alex. Bianca Sylk Model, was joined, by her real life beau, Alex for this beautiful shoot. Bianca began by adorning the beautiful Bella dress from Goddess by Nature. Bella with her show-stopping presence calls for all eyes on her as she seduces its audience with a sheer polka-dot tulle & lace hand appliqué bodice with visible boning on the bodice. This gown is bold … with her sweetheart neckline & slightly sheer bodice, it hugs the hips in the most flattering way before extending into a dropped-waist skirt style embracing the hourglass shape with a full show-stopping long lace & tulle train that extends around her.

Alex is dressed in a Wil Valor bespoke suit. This light grey suit is made from a 7 ounce Zegna fabric from Australian wool. The fabric falls beautifully on the body and is all about creating that subtle elegance. Teamed with a black satin bow tie and crisp white shirt, this suit compliments the bride’s dress and cherry blossom bouquet perfectly.

Embracing this season’s make up trend “a glow from within”, Shannon Hope Makeup Artist, worked with Bianca Sylk Model’s natural stunning features to achieve this amazing look. Shannon pushed her own creative boundaries with teased curls for an effortless feel. Adding in gold foil, in the hair line and décolletage to add interest channelling the saying “she who leaves a trail of gold is not forgotten”.

Once the sun had set, Katherine photographed Bianca in Angelina, a light pink bridal gown, by Goddess by Nature. Angelina is for the modern bride with its v-neckline, thin straps and open lace-up detail romanticising the back. A soft and subtle blush coloured lining adding a warm pinkish hue, highlighting the intricate design of the stunning European floral lace. With a mermaid figure hugging, silhouette it accentuates the female body then flowing out to a long breathtaking lace train. Adorned by the Fern Crown, created by Dawn at Lavender and Lilac. The delicate two toned crown featured lazer cut leaves of silver which reflected the last golden, pink drops of sunlight over the golden Rhodes grass field.

Stylists Wildflowers & Moss were invited to style the brand new wedding and function venue at myHorizon in Brisbane’s south. They drew inspiration for ‘Love Over The Horizon’ from the surrounding bushland.

 

The bridal silhouette for this shoot was the mermaid style ‘Angelina’ gown by Goddess by Nature. This gown was classic yet modern with a stunning lace up back and draped train. It’s beautiful design featured a low v-neckline and was designed for the effortless bride. Our bridesmaid wore the Ethereal Tulle Multiway gown (also Goddess by Nature) in blush designed with a sweetheart pleated bodice and three delicate layers of soft, dreamy tulle.

 

The venue was styled for both a ceremony and reception to showcase its versatility. We designed an arbour to mimic the natural bushland view, choosing flowers of a rustic blend. White Moroccan lanterns were placed at the end of the aisle to completed the look. Later the deck was transformed into a reception space where tablescapes were laid that matched the natural style of the venue. Each place setting contained a muted grey charger and individually designed name tags with matching engraved acrylic menus. 

 

We designed bouquets and flower crowns for both the bride and bridesmaid that matched back with the arbor and tablescape floral designs. The bridal bouquet was designed to be whimsically oversize and featured masses of paper daisies, garden roses, banksias and proteas all nestled in a bed of silver dollar eucalyptus. 

 

The day was perfectly captured by the Brisbane-based wedding photographer Twig + Fawn Photography. Overall the look was fresh, effortless and fun. A look fit for any modern bride and her handsome groom.

Okay, we admit it! We are suckers for destination wedding nuptials. Perhaps it’s  the luxury of taking a vacation to a beautiful place you’ve always wanted to go, with friends and family who care enough about you that they’d do anything to share your special day! And that includes spending money and choosing vacation time that is dedicated to celebrating you and your partner. Could there be a more closely knit and dedicated way of celebrating ‘I Do’s’?

When we first saw photos of our customer Lyndsey Campbell’s wedding at Dreams Resort in Punta Cana we were filled with joy! Her photographer Tamara of Florence Fern Photography captured the entire day with pure joy and excitement. The soft pink colour palette Lyndsey chose for her Signature Multiway bridesmaid dresses and Men’s Matching Bowties is one of our favourites. It fit perfectly with the tropical island backdrop and rooftop terrace reception under a sea of twinkling lights.
