Vintage Elopement in the Hinterland’s of Australia’s Gold Coast

Intimate, heartfelt, and overflowing with love, this Australian elopement beautifully captured by Sophie Baker Photography is what my wedding blogging dreams are made of. My love started with the Bride’s gorgeous Graces Loves Lace gown and then just seemed to grow with each and every gorgeous image, making me head over heels for this love-filled gallery

From Sophie Baker PhotographyKarla & Dave have the most authentic, deeply-rooted love for each other. They eloped in the morning beneath a chandelier-draped tree in the hinterland’s of Australia’s Gold Coast with 5 of their nearest and dearest friends. It was the most relaxed, genuine, heartfelt experience I (the photographer) have ever been involved in, and I walked away having gained two great friends in Karla & Dave. We met back up after their ceremony near sunset to continue their portraits. Karla’s ring is a smaller replica of Princess Kate’s.

Industrial Dessert Parlor Inspiration

I’m a firm believer in everyday indulgence and this industrial inspiration raises the (dessert) bar. The stylings of Dessert Parlour captured by Neiyo elevate a sweet tooth into an art form and have me dreaming about nibbling on some of Saras Cakes And Cookies and those raw Pana Chocolate morsels. There are more goodies to relish from the entire sweet experience here.

From NeiyoI was extremely stoked when Dessert Parlour approached me for this shoot as she specialises in desserts and I am a lover of sweets and desserts! We chose Donkey Wheel House as the venue for this styled industrial shoot as it is a new venue located in the city, it is almost like a cellar door being hidden in the basement of a skyscraper and its vibe is exactly what we were looking for.

The inspiration for the shoot was to highlight the raw elements in the venue (like wood, metal and concrete). There is so much beauty in exposed brick walls which was essentially the backdrop for both the dessert table and table setting.

The dessert table was all about decadence. The marquee lights brought the fun into a gorgeous spread of sweets like marshmallows, alfajores, chocolate bars, cake pops and chocolate cake. Foliage was the main floral for this look so a foliage installation acted as decor and escort cards display as well.

The table setting is a perfect setup for an intimate affair. Using wine barrels as table bases and beautifully arranged contrasts of stone plates, crystal cut glasses and a wooden floral centerpiece, it’s the perfect setup for an intimate affair right in the heart of the CBD.

Whimsical Wedding at Penny’s Hill Winery

I didn’t think children at weddings could get any sweeter until I saw these adorable little ones with the most beautiful flower crowns. Combined with the bride’s bouquet and I’m weak at the knees. The Bloomroom outdid themselves for this wedding, and Life In Still Photography captured every moment. Pull up that Pinterest; you’re about to be bombarded with beauty.

Whimsical

From The Bride… Daniel and I had been planning this day for over a year. The hallway in our house is long and blank and was the perfect place to hang three big sheets of butcher’s paper, displaying our budget. There was no hiding, it was always in our face, reminding us of what we wanted our day to be.

We wanted our guests know what Daniel and I are all about. Which is a relaxed vibe, great food, a love of indie/ folk music, the family we cherish and the friends we love.

To help keep cost low I designed our invitations and other stationery, which has led me to start my own business. Also my mum and I DIY a lot of the decorations, such as the table runner, drink dispensers and chalkboard arrow signs.

Daniel and I were so lucky to have such amazing floral arrangements, which, by the way, are all artificial. My mum owns her own business specialising in making artificial flowers look fresh. I would never have been able to have some of the flowers I desired for my bouquet if I had chosen fresh.

We had met some really cool people along the planning journey. One being our photographer, Bree, from Life In Still Photography. She is amazing, such a wealth of knowledge. Just before our wedding, Bree became unwell and was unable to shoot our day. However she organised for her very experienced assistant to photograph our wedding instead. This was one of those situations that could have been scary, but we trusted Bree and her team delivered. We have beautiful images to show our friends, family and one day, our children.
