Romantic Waterfront Australia Wedding at Campbell Point House

I’ve been starring at these images from The White Tree for quite some time, and yet still can’t find words that will do them justice. This is a wedding that is truly beautiful in every sense of the word – from the gorgeous styling to the totally in love high school sweethearts saying I do – every moment captured is as stunning as it is sweet, and you can see even more here.

From The Bride… My now husband and I met as High school sweethearts and we have been together for 11 years. Nick organised a surprise trip to Sydney where he planned a sea plane to fly us to an Island for a romantic picnic on the beach where he proposed.

The wedding was at Campbell Point House. We loved the romance of the venue and the fact that our family could stay at the venue with us during the weekend, having everyone with you makes it even more special. It was also the location as it was halfway between our old home where we grew up in Country Victoria before we moved to Melbourne together at the age of 18.

The theme was inspired by the location, the venue and a romantic look and feel. It was all whites and soft pinks, all neutral colors. Everything on the day had some handmade elements to it, from the homemade jam, to the wedding cake, to the hand made menus and name tags. My Mother made the cake, which was a white chocolate mud cake, my 77 year old Grandmother made homemade jams for the bombonieres.

The weather was clear but windy, however as we sat down for dinner which was set up outside on the grass the gods were smiling as the sun came out for a brief moment before we all headed back inside the house to continue the night with cocktails and dancing.

I had seen Karen Willis Holmes gowns featured on wedding blogs, which I was looking at while preparing for our wedding, I went to some other stores to try dresses on, but nothing I tried made me feel like it was the one. Then we went to the Karen Willis Holmes Armadale store and this dress was perfect. I said I would buy it before I even saw myself in the mirror, as it just felt perfect, I had to have it! The detail, the design…I didn’t want to take it off!

All bridesmaids dresses were different selected by the bridesmaids themselves, from Review, Rodeo Show and some online stores.

From Neiyo….Melissa and Peter are one of those couples that you fall in love with straight away. They are so kind and caring, even though I was their photographer, they treated me like family.

It was a beautiful sunny blue sky kind of day in Melbourne with a cold breeze. At the gate of this breathtaking private estate (which reminds me of Revenge the TV series!) I was asked for a code, luckily this kind young man driving behind me screamed it out to me who turned out to be one of the 2 groomsmen/sons of the groom. The whole theme for Peter and his boys were Country Road and navy blue whilest everything on the brides side was a soft rose color. Even the little ones were matching to the color sceme. This couple certainly has good taste as most of their wedding was DIY. Melissa styled and organised everything including clothing for entire wedding party, where flowers were positioned in the property, made the blackboards for each area and even covered the cylinders which guests took home with their caricature in with paper (yes they hired a caricaturist!)

During the day I captured a few funny shots as the wind was blowing heavily and the boys & their girlfriends tried to protect their hairdo. I myself even had a Marilyn Monroe moment (lucky my assistant Alli was there to the rescue). Melissa’s Bridesmaid Jane was so beautiful and she made me laugh when I told her that she’s the best bridesmaid and she responded ” thats coz Im Old!”

The wedding was very kids friendly with an area especially decorated for kids and an easter egg hunt that the kids loved. Melissa and Peter designed the menu themselves transforming old family favourites to gourmet style sliders, mini trays of spaghetti and mini pizzas.

The speeches were heart warming filled with laughter and tears especially when Peter thanked his 2 sons…it was a touching moment that I will never forget.

The fairy lights of the estate were sparkling as the night continued in dancing.

From Qlix Photography By Jay Cao… The shoot began in the morning of a sunny Autumn’s day with our model Esma Voloder, highlighting the features of one of Australia’s top wedding dress designer Anna Campbell’s stunning collection along the parklands of Sanctuary Lakes in Point Cook Melbourne. The location show cased native Australian coastline where the foliage is never too far from the sandy beach. We shot 4 of Anna Campbell’s dresses to showcase their impeccable style and detail accentuated by the Australian sun.

After capturing the details of the dresses, the team then went onto setup a styled setting for our rustic theme. The styled setting contained rustic furniture, flowers, desserts and stationery.

Le and Fothergill provided the flowers, The Dessert Parlour provided the desserts, naked cakes and lovely jars of fruits, while Ruffles and Co provided the props and crockery for the setting all of which adds to the rustic theme with hues of pastel yellow and purple.

Country DIY Victoria Wedding

I can say with 100% certainty, I’m a whole lot happier having seen this sweet Victoria wedding. Photographed by Louise Buma with a charming film from Joy Churchill, it’s a down home DIY affair done right. So if minty green details, big yellow balloons, and a honey-hued Volkswagen are your thing (be still my vintage loving heart), make sure to browse through the rest of this sweet soiree right here.

From the Bride…. Pete and I met in high school and started dating in our final school years. He was different to other boys- smart, down to earth and an all round-romantic! We went separate ways at university only to realise, we were meant to be. Time apart saw us both mature and realise what we wanted in life and that was each other.

Pete proposed in the pouring rain in the Italian town of Assisi. We were near the end of a month long trip and I was getting slightly exhausted of sight-seeing. He insisted that we take a walk through the towns park, which was situated on a hill over-looking the Umbrian Hills. Reluctantly, I slowly walked behind him taking photos under my umbrella. While snapping away on my camera, the next thing Pete was down on one knee, asking me to spend the rest of his life with him. I couldn’t believe my eyes. Not only did he have a ring, he had carried it with him for the entire trip! We took the train back to Rome that night and celebrated over Pasta, Tiramasu and Champagne!

We planned our wedding for exactly a year later on January 11th 2014 in Maffra, the town where Pete grew up and where his family still reside. It was important to both of us to be married in a church and a place that had special meaning. Pete and I both grew up in Catholic families and I’ve always dreamed of being married in an old church in a small country town. From the very beginning of the wedding planning, I was certain that I wanted to DIY as much possible for our wedding day. We wanted the day to reflect us and who we were as a couple. As an art teacher, I love getting creative and Pete was happy that we would be saving on costs by doing everything ourselves.

The ceremony was held at St Mary’s Catholic Church on the same street that Pete’s parents live. My father passed away three years ago, so my brother took the reins of walking me half way up the aisle where my mum took over and walked me the rest of the way to Pete. It was truly special. Following, we had our reception of 85 guests at Duart Homestead. Guests enjoyed drinks and canapés outside Duart under the Moreton Bay Fig tree while the bridal party had photos. The night consisted of delicious vegetarian food (both Pete and I are vegetarian), speeches, great music, dancing, laughs in the photo-booth we created and even a surprise ukulele performance by Pete and his family. Guests were given homemade jam (made by Pete!) and honey jars from a locally sourced bee keeper. All the decorations which included 80 metres of hand-sewn bunting, were created and put together with the help of my mum, family and wonderful bridal party while the florist created exactly what I had envisioned of something unique while still reflecting a “country-rustic” theme.

My dress was an ivory lace trumpet gown with capped sleeves and a key-hole back accompanied by a simple drop veil, fresh-flowers pinned through my hair and blue shoes. I struggled choosing one single colour for the bridesmaids to wear so went for my three favourite colours instead while keeping the same style. Pete managed to find some Vegan leather shoes which he was most adamant about wearing and he and the groomsmen pulled off the mint-green bow ties oh so sweetly!

Louise, Lisa and Joy captured our day wonderfully! They were such a joy to work with and we had a lot of fun with them during the photos after the ceremony.

We were truly blessed with the help we had from family and friends putting the day together. Everything was better than imagined and I wouldn’t change anything… if anything, I’d do the whole day all over again!

Urban Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

When you cross boho styling and a loft-style warehouse, pretty things are sure to result. Exhibit A: this absurdly cool shoot brought to life by Sooti Event Styling and DesignKiss My CakesFlower Jar and many more. The talented Alison Mayfield snapped each droll-worthy moment, and it’s all tucked happily in the gallery right here.

From Sooti Event Styling And Design… Our inspiration behind this shoot was the location we scouted, an old loft style warehouse with exposed brick and old wood floors, large arch windows. We wanted a bohemian style, but with an urban twist rather than out in a garden or field as you would normally see. Our inspiration was also drawn from the gorgeous lace dresses we had from Anna Campbell & Mariana Hardwick.

We also had the pleasure of using some of the beautiful Jason Grech wedding gowns. Our models wore stunning floral head crowns and kept the look fairly natural. We wanted it to be slightly deep and moody yet still pretty and I think we achieved that. We were lucky enough to have the gorgeous Anna Campbell and Jason Grech on location with us so it was a real team effort and a fun day had by all. We used the stunning Samantha Wills jewelry too which complimented the dresses.

From The Bride…Travis and I were pretty relaxed about the way our day would be. Through everyday conversations, excited dinners and countless wines we found that the most important aspects for us would be that our day was fun/relaxed, down-to-earth and most importantly a truly genuine representation of our love for each other.

We always knew that living in Sydney but having our wedding in Melbourne would pose certain challenges for us, the biggest being that I wanted to be fully involved in the decision making process and also have many little DIY/personal touches throughout the entire day – thank goodness we have the most amazing support network of family and friends which helped add these beautiful genuine and personal aspects to make our day so perfect for us.

Zonzo made for the most incredible location – A stunning autumn winery backdrop for our outdoor ceremony. Exposed brick, polished concrete floors and high ceilings with timber and long cafeteria style tables made for an absolutely perfect reception.

Dusty baby blue simple bridesmaids, extremely dark navy blue groomsman, all over lace dress for myself, dark green foliage, bright blue and brown small bottles, fairy light canopies and pops of pink, yellow and orange were the feel of the day. Our beautiful timber arbour was filled with dark green foliage with bursts of bright colors with a gorgeous deer skull/antlers with flowers and foliage all entwined throughout. Travis and I hand wrote our own vows and surprised each other on the day.We plan to take our favorite part from each others vows and have the words engraved inside our wedding bands.We had a heshen/lace runner with brown bottles lining the aisle and the green vineyard backdrop completed the look.

My dress was a backless,high neck,entirely lace, capped sleeves Johanna Johnson (Rosa) dress.The first dress in the first shop I had tried on, it was beyond perfect. I wore a babies breath flower crown for the ceremony and a larger brighter, bolder flower crown for the reception (my party crown!)

Travis wore a check blue and white Paul Smith dinner jacket which complimented the yellow/pink button holes so perfectly – just divine!

My mum sourced us a Volkswagen Beetle as the wedding car and this meant so much to us. Travis’s first car was an old Volkswagen beetle which he called Tallulah, he picked me up for our very first date in that car and this was always our form of transport in the very early stages of our relationship. We adored that car and the many memories we have with it, even when we did run out of fuel on numerous occasions due the fuel gauge not working properly!

My grandmother, the wonderful green thumb she is, made us our bonbonnieres. She spent the six months before potting mini succulents into tiny terracotta pots which she had grown in her garden 12 months before, she tied all the twine bows by hand and cared for them in the lead up to our day.

Travis and I don’t really enjoy cake, the only cake we really love is carrot cake! My mother in law made us our carrot cake wedding cake. Needless to say my father in law (as the taste tester) enjoyed the 12 month lead up to our day with the many trials of carrot cake he was able to devour!

My sister in law Hollie and Jen my mother in law crafted our icosahedron curtain for our tripod “photo booth” back drop. They spent hours cutting, gluing and folding and thank goodness because end result was spectacular.

Our stylist/florist Bobilee from Love Clarence was a mind reader. She knew exactly what I wanted and completed the aesthetics of our day! Our dance floor was covered by a fairy light canopy which was covered in green foalage, large “T & K” light letters lit up the reception area, below another beautiful skull/antler combo. The tables were lined with bright blue jars, pops of pink, orange and yellow flowers and the pretty tiny name tag succulents. We also had a “posie wrapping station” where guests can grab flowers from the around the reception, wrap them up and take them home at the end of the night.

Guests ate antipasto, pizza, traditional roast and the carrot cake throughout the night. The dance floor was constantly busy and filled with people dancing along to Travis’s very talented school friends (Michaela Marshall) band, including Travis’s famous bum dance. Another school friend of Trav’s surprised us and sang a couple of songs which was just so lovely also.

Overall, our day went by so incredibly quickly. It was better then we could of ever imagined. Along with our guests we just had so much fun, and I’m so pleased as this was our goal. More then anything else, our day was filled with love, that totally down-to-earth, real love – the kind of love that I still haven’t been able to wipe off my face.
