Elegant Beach Wedding on Stradbroke Island

Held at the perfectly named An Island Hideaway, this wedding has me believing there’s something extra special in that ocean breeze, from the bride’s beachy hair to her gorgeous gown. Bird & Boy Photography and Anchored Cinema captured it all from first kiss to barefoot bliss and you too can indulge in your childhood mermaid memories with me right this way!

From Bird And Boy Photography… Kate is a wedding decor professional so she was absolutely thrilled to plan and style her own wedding… she was so organised and knew exactly what she wanted. Kate and Ryan made a lot of the wedding decor. She focused on a beachy theme with lots of flowers and floral arrangements. She was told constantly on her wedding day that she looked like a mermaid!

Kate and Ryan had just moved to the Gold Coast from Melbourne and were so excited to start their married life with a beachy start. They wanted a wedding to feel more like a holiday so they decided to get married at An Island Hideaway which we all needed to take a ferry to get to. It really felt like we were travelling to a secret destination.

We were able to drive to the other side of the island for a secret portrait location with magical lighting and beautiful sunlight.

Floral Inspired Bridal Luncheon

I’m what you would call a bridal shower junkie; invite me and I’ll be there with bells on, more than ready to toast you and yours.  So give me a floral-inspired bridal shower shoot, complete with gold-dusted macarons, and I’m all sorts of happy.  Especially when its a perfectly crafted day of pretty from the likes of Victoria CameronAlways Fabulous Flowers and Studio Impressions.  Click here for more.

From Victoria Cameron… I teamed up with a great team of vendors including Studio Impressions, Styled Events and Always Fabulous Flowers to create this floral-inspired bridal luncheon.

We wanted to create something that celebrated the events that lead up to the wedding day and with that in mind chose a stylish lunch setting for a bridal tea or luncheon.

From the beginning it was to designed for the bride who loves all things sweet and pink so we chose a soft champagne underlay for the tablecloths and paired this with a sheer damask overlay. We then flooded the tables with small floral arrangements in a collection of vintage crystal vases and added a beautiful finishing touch with place cards and gold-dusted macarons for every guest.

I kind of feel like Calli B Photography and Three Stone Gold Weddings & Events created this shoot just for me, because honestly, it’s my dream.

From the beautiful hand scripted napkins to the amazing florals from Bella Bloom Floral Design, this gallery is nothing short of perfect.

From Calli B PhotographyFor this organic country elegance shoot, Mikaela from Three Stone Gold Weddings & Events wanted to draw inspiration from the amazing greenery and views of the venue, by combining a neutral colour palette of white and soft dove grey with natural light timbers. The dove grey colour became the forefront of the inspiration, as it created such an earthy and romantic country feel.

With regards to the table setting, Mikaela wanted to keep it simple, drawing the eye to a few key elements. Printed linen napkins combined with bouquet garni created the perfect organic setting, keeping it effortlessly modern but still timeless.

The cake was decorated with different shades of icing, using the dove grey colour palette as inspiration, and a wreath of greenery was added to keep its design consistent with the organic country theme. White candles and delicate flowers were placed on a table cloth of soft grey linen, while opulent glass wear and cheese platters further added to the rustic appeal of the table setting.

Mismatched timber chairs and vintage-style cutlery complemented each other seamlessly, and a glass flagon filled with bright orange juice provided a pop of colour. Napkins with ‘Bon Appetite’ scrawled across them in cursive font brought a touch of charisma to the table setting, nestled against bunches of greenery tied with white ribbons.

Incorporating fresh white, green and grey hued florals to tone in with the stunning Maleny background, as well as Three Stone Gold weddings styling Bella Bloom Floral Designs selected a combination of Succulents, Dusty Miller foliage, Carnations and Chrysanthemums to create a glamorous rustic table centre-piece enhanced with touches of Queens Anne’s Lace, Hyacinths, Andromeda Flower and Arabs Eye to add extra texture and interest.

For the ladder feature, Bella Bloom Floral Designs used Easter Daisy and Wax flower to add a touch of ‘’pretty’’ to the tin pales. -”We love lush, organic bouquets at Bella Bloom Floral Designs, so for the Bride we created a free-form bouquet with lots of fresh foliage like gum and leather fern, as well as pretty delicate flowers like the Hyacinths and Queen Anne’s Lace. We bound the bouquet with long linen stripped ribbon for an extra touch of decadence.”

The rolling green hills of the Maleny countryside provided the perfect backdrop for such a lavish wedding design.
