Rustic Gum Gully Farm Wedding

I dare you to watch this film and not fall madly in love with this gorgeous duo.  Seriously, I dare you. Because this is the kind of couple that cracks up during their vows, throws an amazingly pretty + awesome party AND has the types of friends and family that you wish you could hang with on a daily basis.  Press play to see every moment captured by Preface Films.  It’s amazing.


From Preface Films… Creating amazing stories are what we do best and this wedding film is surely one of those! I met Morgan awhile back and she began talking to me about how she met Trevor. Morgan is a veterinary nurse and met Trevor who is an animal lover himself.

We chatted about her ‘fur babies’ and the amazing little farm they have to share with them all. She told me her plan to ride her beautiful horse down the entrance of the farm and then walk down with the aisle with her dad… amazing!!!

It was from this that we then talked through how we can make their wedding film, one that they will treasure forever.

Filmed at Gum Gully Farm, we are excited to share the wedding film of Trevor & Morgan.

Peony Inspired Wedding Shoot + Film

Fun Fact: peonies can bloom for 100+ years! Its one of the heartiest (and prettiest) perennials around which is why we think this shoot from Styled by Linda is especially apropos for the upcoming wedding season. And we’re just as crazy about the bold blooms as we are about the stunning Anna Campbell gowns. Thankfully Le Motion Wedding Films and Silk Truffle Photography were there to lend their lenses for the day.

From Styled by LindaThis styled shoot was inspired by the bold and vibrant colors of peonies. Sydney is blessed with an abundance of this gorgeous bloom, what’s not to love about peonies! We wanted to capture its beauty together with equally gorgeous gowns, headpieces, veils and accessories.

The peony is one of the most popular flowers chosen by brides for their wedding. We often see the lighter and softer colors in bouquets and flower arrangements however for this shoot we wanted to inject a bit of color by using bright and bold colored flowers. We wanted to inspire brides to be more adventurous and daring with their choices of color their wedding. We wanted to create that feeling of warmth, romance and elegance that all brides want on their wedding day.

We had such a great team of collaborators who put in so much hard work on a very hot December day in Sydney. It was over 40 degrees and everyone worked tirelessly to bring everything together.

Classic Vintage Chic Wedding at Montsalvat

Classic at its very core, and beyond gorgeous – this Australian soiree at the Montsalvat is what my wedding dreams are made of. Complete with a stunning gown from non other than Project Runway winner, Leanne Marshall and gorgeous florals from Floral Concepts, every detail sitting in Luma Photo‘s gorgeous photos are just as pretty as they come, and you can see them all here.


From the Bride…I met Andrew, love of my life, and now my husband, at work two years ago. We dated for 12 months before Andrew proposed on the Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise on a holiday to New York. I was obviously thrilled and we started to plan our wedding straight away!

For us, the venue was the easiest part to choose as we had both visited and loved Montsalvat which is a small artist colony that resembles an ancient European castle and was built by bohemians in the 1920s. As children we had both wandered the gardens amazed by its enchanting features so different to anywhere else, and when we were dating we would frequent the restaurant for coffee with the peacocks on several occasions! We chose a simplistic style and used the medieval/vintage feel of the venue to inspire us.

My dress I bought online and it was designed by Leanne Marshall (project runway winner in the USA). I sent my measurements over to the USA and my dress arrived 12 weeks later. The dress was simple and beautiful with a silk underlay and full lace overlay. I am absolutely obsessed with lace and very girly styling. I wore pearl earrings given to me by Andrew for my birthday and a delicate vintage watch that was my grandmothers (given to her on her wedding day). My veil was full length silk tulle and I bought that online from a UK designer, Sarah Morgan.

I chose baby pink for my gorgeous bridesmaids to wear because firstly its a beautiful feminine soft colour and also because our venue was quite dark inside and I wanted to lighten the mood. The girls dresses were hand made by a dressmaker I knew who had made other dresses for me in the past. All the girls had slightly different styles to keep things interesting. They also wore pearl jewels and I presented them with a pearl clutch on the day, that I purchased from Etsy. Andrew wore a classic black single-breasted peaked lapel suit by Melbourne designer Godwin and Charlie. He has loved Godwin and Charlie for years as they make beautiful fitting suits and stylish jackets. He even learnt to tie his own bow tie for the occasion! His groomsmen all wore black dinner suits.

Our flowers were provided by floral concepts- inspired by nature. Jessica Higgins (floral designer) made me the most gorgeous tear drop bouquet and my beautiful bridesmaids had poses of pastel pink and ivory roses as well as Lissianthus, andromeda and seasonal foliage. Jessica also dressed the tables with two lovely bouquets in fowlers jars and she provide the bouquets for the church.

The wedding ceremony was held in the upper gallery in front of a stunning stain-glass window. We had a Catholic ceremony and used traditional vows and readings. The entry music was played by a classical trio (cello, violin and piano) and was an arrangement of the song ‘The Giant of Illinois’ by Andrew Bird. Our friend Steven Walker also performed an emotional rendition of our favourite songs ‘To Build a Home’ by Cinematic Orchestra.

The reception was held in the great hall- the largest building on the Montsalvat grounds. The 120 guests dined with roaring open fires and huge candelabra’s on each table while they listened and later danced to the amazing tunes played by ‘The Royal Jellies’ a fantastic 8 piece swing style band. My very clever mum and her friend from work made all the place cards and mum hand-made all the favours as well as a material tree with hearts for people to write a message on and add to the tree.

The favours were individually made lace bags with pink ribbon roses, filled with delicious heart chocolates. Our cake was made by another talented family friend, Patricia Lovegrove. It was an ivory three tiered chocolate mud cake with a swirl design and was decorated by our florist in fresh roses.
We had dance lessons at ‘Forever Dance’ and gorgeous instructor Kate created a lovely first dance for two uncoordinated individuals, to the song ‘A case of you’ – James Blake cover. Everyone then joined us on the dance floor to continue the celebration into the night!

Of course Luma Photo were there to capture the whole day and we were so impressed with the beautiful photos this talented team were able to present to us. Not to mention their professional, calming and caring nature. It’s so wonderful to have all these beautiful memories.
