The vendors’ goal for this project was to create a beautiful, textural shoot full of beautiful wedding inspiration and they delivered greatness. Paying homage to the buildings, which have a real Tuscan vibe, the decided color palette was a natural one made up of dusty pinks, peaches, natural wood colors and terracotta. (But for real, we are totally in support of the earthy tones!) This dream team opted for two statement setups; the arbour and an amazing, abundant tablescape, and interwove a couple of chillout areas and small item styling setups too. Hats off to this one!
What was your design inspiration?
The buildings at the museum are very reminiscent of Tuscan/Italian stone buildings. We’d seen an image on Pinterest of a wedding with festoons set in an Italian castle and this was our main source of inspiration. We wanted to provide a modern twist on a rustic, Italian castle vibe.
Describe your flowers.
We opted for beautiful, seasonal blooms with a focus on roses, orchids and fragrant, abundant greenery. Vanessa created a beautiful arbour instalment, gorgeous table florals with a cascade at one end, and a bouquet.
Describe your cake.
Jess from Myrtle & Clay provided two, two-tiered cakes in the colors of the palette. She decorated each with dried florals in statement arrangements on the cakes.
Tell us about your attire choices.
We opted for a beautiful sleeved gown with gorgeous appliqué detail from Greta Kate. Greta also provided the veil. We loved the wrapper gown with button details on the elegant sleeves. For the groom, we lent two suits from Peter Shearer, and dressed the tweed suit up with a hat.
Please describe any DIY, handmade or personal details.
So much of the shoot was in the details…from the handmade clay candle holders, to the stationery and headpiece. The backdrop linens by Phoebe were all hand-dyed using plant based material, and the smaller clusters of vases were all handprinted with a baking soda and paint mix by Kelly from Found Collective.
Describe the tablescape elements.
We wanted a really abundant tablescape, and so Vanessa created an amazing cascade of florals accompanied by individual boats of florals for the middle of the table – the way these were created meant that we didn’t use any floral foam, and each boat could be moved and utilized on the flat lay for the stationery. We had lots of candles, both pillars and tapers which sat in handmade clay holders. We used rattan placemats and built up the layered effect with plates, terracotta napkins, stationery and wooden fans.
