Have you heard, lovelies? Tea length bridesmaid dresses are back… and they are back in a big way. Think gorgeous flowing chiffon Paul Hunt numbers in the softest of hues totally taking your breath away. Set them against a stunning classic meets Australian country wedding and we can barely contain our glee. Soak in every last ounce of awesome captured by Kelly Adams in the full gallery.
From the Bride… Our wedding was very Elegant and Classical, with a twist of Vintage Country. I chose very neutral colours for myself and bridesmaids, I feel my personality reflects my choice. I’ve never liked being the centre of attention (even on my own wedding day). Although I do love things to be beautiful without being in your face, very different to my husband, who likes all things bright. Navy is another favourite of mine, so to give the boys a less “formal ” look I decided to go with a navy jacket and beige pants. Very country Australian men’s dresswear.
Having close family and friends at our wedding made the day so special, but most of all seeing my my best friend and 18-month-old son at the end of the aisle made everything seem so perfect.
Amazing food, great wine and dancing to old time favourites definitely made all the planning worthwhile. When you see your guests enjoying themselves, you have a gasp of relief.
I loved everything about my wedding, being able to make it so personalised is the best part of planning. My favourites were definitely the Blooms & Dress! You can never have too many flowers.

Combining a laid-back setting like the beach with a super chic black dress and a killer paid of Ted Baker London heels was a brilliant (+ gorgeous) move on this stunning bride-to-be’s part. It’s what we like to call taking the normal beach e-sesion and kicking it up a notch, and when you lay your eyes on the breathtaking images from The Obsession Collection, you’ll know exactly what we mean. See it all here.
From The Obsession Collection… Dave and Stevie first met about five years ago while working together at bar on the gold coast; this was just the beginning, they have been inseparable since.
After asking Stevie’s parents for permission, Dave planned a lovely engagement by taking Stevie to Port Douglas, walking her through a pretty park full of beautiful flowers and getting down on one knee. He had originally planned to do it on the beach, but Stevie was a little worried about crocodile breeding season, so Dave had to improvise. He still got the answer he was hoping for, Stevie cried and said YES.
Dave and Stevie are such a beautiful couple. Stevie was so nervous about the engagement shoot, but Dave made her feel at ease and the rest just came naturally. By the end, I didn’t need to direct the couple much at all as they had forgotten I was even there and just really enjoyed each other’s company.
It was a very gloomy overcast day, but absolutely beautiful for shooting outdoors, we went for a very natural look and really wanted to express the couples emotion and excitement of their engagement.
For all of these images I used Kodak Portra 160 to achieve soft clear skin tones and beautiful timeless images.
