This shoot was conceived by Lovebird Weddings who created the colour palette, concept design and engaged all the suppliers. Lovebird Weddings is a bespoke wedding planning and styling agency based in Noosa, an iconic wedding destination on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
The concept behind this shoot was to capture the essence of a raw, intimate and natural love story.
We wanted to portray an intimate ceremony with just close friends and the journey they walk together through life. Our bride and groom stood together amongst a wild flower and native grass lined jetty, overlooking the misty dam, with the hinterland rolling in around them. Their friends were seated on raw timber benches with sheep skins draped over them.
The group then gathered beneath a muslin draped tipi, amongst an unstructured secret garden hidden in the depths of the property, where the sunlight trickled through overhanging branches. It was filled with cow hides, sheep skins, cosy throws, large cushions and ottomans, along with a decadent array of sweet pastries and cakes displayed on tarnished silver trays. The group took this time to play naughts and crosses, sing, drink and indulge!
Beneath the tree we hung a macramé hammock, where the couple were able to have a short moment together – just the two of them.
The feasting style dinner was designed to be about the joy of food, flavour and quality time with friends. Pallets were stacked to create a long low set table and soft lace, linens and muslin fabrics were gathered and woven in and out of the pallets for a lovely textured effect. Dimmable globes fell from an overhanging branch and puddled across the table for a delicate lighting element. Atop the table sat unhemmed napkins, clusters of vintage plates and silverware, as well as raw wooden boards which hosted rustic cheeses, nuts, fruits, berries, syrups, honey and herbs for a tapas feast.
To end their day, the group sat around a roaring fire pit and then one by one, they retreated to their own private bell tents.
