Set in a sprawling meadow, this naturally glamourous shoot at Capaja Meadows exudes opulence and draws you in with welcome.
Janine from White Ivy Design and Decinda from Sugar & Spice Events work together often, and planned a creative collaboration to showcase “the new rustic”. Rich, warm and romantic colours are in vogue as brides move away from traditionally rustic decor.
The styling is inspired by spiced red wine, and warm summer nights, blood red peonies and forest feasts. Pomegranates, figs and berries adorned raw wooden tables, with a huge floral centrepiece featuring hydrangeas, thistles and David Austin roses.
Boutique tea blends from Lemon Canary were placed on Joyeux Noel plates from Myer. A mahogany stained antique buffet displayed a decadent dessert table, with fruit and flowers bursting from the draws, and clean cakes (sugar free!) from Blendlove. A layered chocolate cream naked cake was embellished with fruit and flowers. Scrawling calligraphied navy stationary from Sunshine & Confetti perfectly matched dark linen napkins.
Our gorgeous model was a modern-day Juliet, wrapped in a vintage lace gown from Made With Love Bridal. The long train fell to the ground and trailed behind her through the grass.
All of these elements worked together in harmony to create a sumptuous visual feast that feels festive, but is perfect for a celebration any time of the year.
Thanks goes to Tim Sherriff Photography for capturing these stunning images.
