One peek at Ashleigh & Scott and the romance is palpable! Their absurdly gorgeous celebration at Spicer’s Clovelly Estate in the green hills of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, was filled to the brim with beautiful details…
It was a tale of two sweethearts and bucketloads of country vintage elegance, when Ashleigh & Scott tied the knot in glorious Montville. With a base colour palette of simple white, ivory, nude, cream & beige we added subtle touches of apricot and soft pinks and then brought it a stronger rose pink for a big kiss of romance! This was all set off perfectly with greenery in shades of olive, sage and soft grey to complete the country feel. Ashleigh & Scott pictured a relaxed day and wanted their guests to feel much love, laughter and entertainment along the way…
The whole day was captured on film by the creative souls at Lester & May – enjoy a peek into this tale of timeless romance by clicking here.
As guests entered Spicers Clovelly Estate, they were greeted with a hand-drawn blackboard before moving across the manicured lawn to the gracious Jacaranda tree. They followed a delicate trail of scented rosebuds and sweet flowers hung from shepherds hooks, and were seated on French bistro chairs, ready for the Bride’s entrance.

The rustic altar was crowned with a handmade lace canopy, and draped in glorious blooms. After the beautiful ceremony, the new “Mr & Mrs” were whisked off for some incredible photos while the guests were treated to an afternoon garden party soiree.
With the sweet sounds of live music drifting in the breeze, guests mingled in the dappled afternoon sunlight with drinks, canapes, croquet and boules. They relaxed on our Provence lounge and armchairs, Tiffany ottoman and East Hampton high bar stools, amongst manicured gardens. Soft floral cushions were scattered about, and tied in perfectly with the lush floral arrangements.
The Library Deck, such a perfect space for a relaxed yet chic reception. With long tables swathed in crisp white linen, the elegant black Hamptons chairs and vintage candelabras formed a beautiful contrast, along with soft rustic touches such as hand-painted timber table numbers.
The florals were a fragrant blend of vintage blooms, such as David Austin roses, lisianthus, tulips, hyacinths, cottage roses, stocks and gardenia, and were arranged in an eclectic selection of crystal and metallic vases. As night fell, the candles blazed golden and the effect was absolutely magical.
Our favourite little suitcase provided the perfect spot to pop cards, and the vintage typewriter gave guests an enjoyable yet nostalgic experience as they tapped out their well wishes for the guest book.
The exquisite cake was perfectly in keeping with the theme of elegance and romance, with three perfect tiers in citrus and white chocolate mudcake. The sweet treats continued, as later in the evening Scott’s grandmother’s homemade Italian biscuits were served with coffee. And our lovebirds flew away to Europe for a magical honeymoon, but that is another story altogether! But yes they did live happily ever after! xo

Without a doubt, this letter that we received from Ashleigh & Scott was one of the most heartfelt, gorgeous letters we have ever received:
We are back from our honeymoon after having the best trip, full of new experiences and lots of amazing food. The blow of returning to reality was however softened by the suspense of knowing that we had a viewing of our wedding pictures with Studio Impressions on our return.
It was so beautiful to sit there yesterday and watch the day unfold through Adam’s lens. There were so many pictures that I did not know he would of been able to capture, because I don’t even remember him being in the room at the time. His pictures are absolutely stunning and what is truly special is that as we looked at each photo I could remember, and see, the emotion of that moment.
What also struck me, was just how perfect the styling was. We have recieved so many compliments on not only the beautiful decor but also the flow of the day. Looking through the photos, the way you styled the venue is absolutely beautiful – your attention to detail is second to none and this shows through the photos. You certainly have some amazing pieces, and as you know the chandelier is my favorite – wait until you see the pictures, just stunning!
Trudy, I don’t really know how to put into words how grateful both Scott and I are for everything you did for us both in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. You answered every email with enthusiasm and direction and helped me us to make many decisions whilst doing so in a way that made us feel we had done it all on our own. Your presence at our wedding was so calming which allowed me to relax and just enjoy the day. You are highly professional, reassuring, unobtrusive and it truly felt like you were just one of my friends there on the day.
Obviously weddings are expensive and for many a wedding planner or stylist would not be within budget. For us, it was a decision that we had to consider but I can honestly say that for the level of service you provide, that you are unbelievable value for money.
Ashleigh & Scott”
