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.

Relaxed Summer Wedding in Sydney

There’s nothing more divine than being young and in love. Which is why we’re wistfully charmed by Hannah and Dane’s relaxed summer wedding. These pictures from Mark and Kara Photography are just the tip of the iceberg too (you can find the whole gallery here). The cavernous church, beautiful bouquets, the quaint Q Station reception hall, and a whole throng of elated family and friends – this wedding has it all!

From Mark and Kara Photography…Hannah & Dane first met 10 years ago at Christian holiday camp for teens in Canberra in 2004, “we continued to meet each year at the camp and developed a strong friendship on the phone and through MSN – the good old days” says Hannah. “We began a long distance relationship between Canberra and Sydney in 2006, much to the shock of our parents. We would regularly talk on the phone and catch Murrays Buses between NSW and the ACT every month or so, and when we finished high school, Dane moved to Sydney so that we could live near each other”.

Hannah and Dane, both school teachers, continued to date through university, and now at the ages of 23 and 21, have already known each other for a decade. “We’ve known each other for half our lives, growing up together has seen us share many milestones.”

Dane proposed to his childhood sweetheart at sunrise in September 2012, at a lookout on Sydney’s middle harbour. ‘We were looking across the water from the Spit Bride to Manly Beach walk, I really couldn’t understand why we were awake so early until he finally pulled out a ring!”

Hannah and Dane married as soon as their university exams were finalized, keen to start the next chapter of their lives together. They wed at Petersham Baptist Church on December 7 2013, with a ceremony and afternoon tea for 250 guests. This was followed by a reception for 150 guests at Q Station in Manly. “We had drinks and canapes on the wharf followed by dinner, dancing and speeches in the heritage ballroom.” Guests were given homemade rocky road as a bomboniere, wrapped in brown paper and tied with a string. “It was the same secret recipe that I used to win Dane’s heart in the early days” says Hannah. “We wanted our wedding to be earthy, rustic and natural, so we went for creams, greens and native flowers to tie in with the rustic setting of the Q Station.”

Hannah wore a simple and classic ivory satin gown, deciding to not wear a veil and stay true to their dream of a relaxed wedding day. “I didn’t want a veil or anything over the top, I just wanted Dane to see me as myself.”

The couple spent their honeymoon travelling through the North Island of New Zealand in a camper van called Jane, for nine adventure filled nights!

Palm Beach Waterfront Wedding

It’s crazy to think that this gorgeous day was planned in just three short months, but let me tell you, loves: when you pair up a fabulous team of vendors with a bride and groom as awesome as these two, anything is possible.  Think a breathtaking waterfront ceremony meets hundreds of happy faces meets all kind of amazing moments captured by David Campbell Imagery.  See them all in the full gallery.

From the Bride… Kenny and I have been together seven years, but marriage still wasn’t high on our radar… at least I thought it wasn’t, until Kenny proposed during a trip to Switzerland last year.

Due to family circumstances we decided to have our wedding as soon as possible and to keep it local.

Scrapping our original plan to get married in Italy, I started calling venues and luckily The Boathouse Palm Beach had an opening, on Valentine’s Day no less!

For two people who had never envisaged their wedding day we knew we had quite a feat in front of us throwing a wedding together in three months! So the theme pretty much chose itself – simple and elegant. One thing I knew I did want was a bouquet featuring roses as homage to my Grandma, which Wedding Flowers By Renee put together along with simple baby’s breath for my bridesmaids.

The day started early with Zada Hair in charge of hair and makeup, making the girls look even more beautiful than they already are. We had a short, simple ceremony with Jessie Cacchillo, styled by The Wedding PA and Waves & Weddings for 85 guests on the Northern Beaches.

Our wedding photographer friend couldn’t take the photos as he was in our wedding party, so he put us onto Dave from David Campbell Imagery who was a joy to work with and did a fantastic. He also has an amazingly fast turnaround time!

The Boathouse looked stunning when we got to the reception and far exceeded any expectations we had. I didn’t have a chance to eat much on the night but I am so glad I had a piece of our wedding cake created by Cakes Plus as its one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. And it held of raining long enough for everyone to dance the night away!

So much love went into this wedding and we can’t thank our friends and family enough for all the help and time they gave in putting it together.
