From Kim Power“Elegant Hippy” is how Paige described her wedding theme – there were vibes of rural, modern, boho, classic, beauty, romance, zen and glamour. The location was Tanonga Luxury Eco-Lodges in Charlton Gully, a private but blossoming outback venue.

Paige was dressed by Pallas Couture – a very modern romantic silhouette. She had 6 bridesmaids – 3 of which were Mum’s to be and dressed in gorgeous off the shoulder gowns. Her flowers were made up of white grandiflora cluster roses, carnations and tulips. A reflection of her husband to be’s heritage.

Their ceremony was personal, emotional and inspiring. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! The locations surrounding the lodge’s provided picturesque landscapes for both I and the photographer Jade to take advantage of. Their reception was held at the Port Lincoln Hotel and it was transformed into a golden glitz, garden-like ballroom. There were many laughs and tears throughout the night, Paige & Jake’s family speeches were memorable and heartfelt. Everyone joined them on the dance floor after their bridal waltz, their DJ kept everyone partying for the rest of the night!

Sydney Centennial Parklands Engagement Session

What would be our perfect day? We imagine it might look something like this Centennial Park engagement session. From a dreamy picnic styled in shades of porcelain and blue to romantic strolls in the woods and picturesque bike rides, We Are Origami captured it all in the most perfect light right here!

From We Are OrigamiJaw-dropping is undeniably the best way we can describe this gorgeous session with Dorothy and Clifford.

Inspired by the stunning colours and vibe of the Greek Islands, this styled shoot had exquisite details, including a table dripping with soft white peony flowers, a stunning antipasto selection and incredible light.

With playful and affectionate undertones so evident in the moments captured, Dorothy and Clifford had a 7 and a half year long friendship before they came to us to shoot their engagement. We hope you enjoy it!

From Wanaka Wedding FlowersHelen and Adam chose Wanaka for their wedding on 31 January because it was close to their Dunedin home and because it had family connections. Helen said, “It was a special day with wonderful friends and family there to celebrate together.”

Helen chose shades of pink and a hint of blue for her bouquets. We used some roses from Colombia called “Quicksand” with some “Sarah Bernhardt” peonies, a few pale blue agapanthus and some pink gypsophila in the mix. I loved working with Helen — she was a delight and made my job so easy! I wish her and Adam all the best!

Romantic Garden-Inspired Wedding with Rustic Touches

This romantic Australian affair is proof that you don’t need to be outdoors to have a garden wedding. And with special touches like lace from the Bride’s mother’s wedding dress sewed into her custom Celyna Ziolkowski gown, DIY florals and playful cootie-catcher menus, this beautiful day was truly one-of-a-kind. See all the gorgeous images from Daniel Griffiths here.

Rustic

From the Bride… The theme of our wedding was romantic vintage garden with rustic accents. My auntie assisted with creating mood boards inspired from Pinterest and Style Me Pretty. With a fusion of different styles and elements we came up with the perfect pieces to create the wedding which Chris and I dreamed of – elegant with a touch of vintage and the feel of an indoor garden. Many items were DIY. Vintage and rustic pieces were hired or bought, including a hired gelato cart.

Our ceremony and reception were held at historic Oatlands House. Close family and friends gathered and mingled in the pristine gardens holding parasols to shelter from the hot sun… the Orders of Service were in the shape of Kraft paper fans; newspaper cones filled with rose petals; DIY bouquets in mason jars decorated with lace and twine; a vintage table in front of a rustic screen set up for the signing of the wedding certificate… it was picture perfect.

One by one, my bridesmaids slowly walked out – as if in rhythm with the soft sounds of a harp in the background – gorgeous in buttercream off-the-shoulder Zimmerman dresses, holding bouquets of white spray roses, hydrangeas, lisianthus and dusty miller. The groom and groomsmen looked stylish in their navy suits.

Keeping to tradition, my father gave me away. Walking down a long aisle runner scattered with rose petals, I joined my soon-to-be-husband. Under the canopy we declared to each other the vows we wrote.

Based on a vision of my dream dress, Sydney designer Celyna Ziolkowski meticulously fashioned my gown: Ivory French lace, an open back and a soft flowing fishtail. French lace from my mother’s wedding gown was also appliqued onto the bodice (something old) and sentimental. Also designed by Celyna was my French lace mantilla veil, which softly flowed around my dress. My bouquet was a mixture of hydrangeas, spray roses, lisianthus, dusty miller and hypericum berries.

The Deck Room was filled with the scent of French pear from soy candles from Oleria Emporium. Table seating and names were hand-written on an old vintage glass door. The names were written as they were known to Chris and I. Our guests thought this was endearing.

The bridal table was placed in the middle of the room. It looked breathtaking. A long rustic table and chairs, bejeweled with a stunning floral and foliage garland on a lace runner spilling over both sides. Interspersed between the garlands were floral centerpieces: lisianthus, miniature roses, chrysanthemums, and tortured willow on a moss and bark base with dodger vine. Votive candles hung off the twigs. Crystal glasses and crystal charger plates completed the elegant setting.

It was the special touches that made our wedding unique… the menus were inside custom-made cootie catchers along with Q&As about the bride and groom; on a vintage dresser were three generations of family wedding photos, including one of the bride’s brother who passed away in his youth; viewfinders with images of the bride and groom at different ages; candles in mason jars and rustic ornament decorations. In a corner of the room with a peacock chair, white wicker chairs, an old plant stand with ornate candelabra, guests wrote advice on wooden love hearts.

Delectable home-made desserts were displayed on a vintage table. A naked cake adorned with orange roses and berries was baked for my father, who also celebrated his birthday – all made by my youngest auntie. The wedding cake sat atop an old cotton reel wrapped in floral wreaths mirroring the floral garland on the bridal table.

An emotional moment for me was when one of my bridesmaids and childhood school friend dedicated a song she had written for Chris and I.

Our day was “just how we imagined – romantic and elegant,” a day we will never forget.
