It’s not often that a business gets to turn 10…in fact, i’ve heard that only 4-5% of small businesses get this opportunity, so as you can imagine, it was well worth the party…and our chance to thank all the suppliers we have worked so closely with for believing in us, and being our ultimate dream team.

We chose a “white” theme for our party, where everyone came dressed in white, and the  furniture design was as  white as we could go…complimented with a fresh dash of greenery.

Check out the film from the night’s festivities on our You Tube page.

The concept behind the shoot was to showcase a luxurious wedding destination with contemporary and coastal elegance, enhanced by an element of high fashion. Our three piece white arch accompanied with beautiful greenery was placed in the shallows of the ocean, along with our ghost chairs to achieve the perfect ceremony design…

Charcoal linen tablecloths along with soft white and blue muslin draping created the base for the table design, which was then finished off with layered charcoal & teal plates, dusty pink linen napkins, silver cutlery,  and bronze hand-scripted name place cards. Our hurricane lanterns were placed along the centre of the table to complete the look. Mondo Floral Designs created texture and depth using whimsical, soft, delicate white florals with shades of dusty pinks, mineral greys/blues, and the subtle richness of eggplant with sage greenery.

As a special feature to the design, we included a Rosé & Truffle Bar, and created a luxurious lounge setting on the beach using our linen chesterfields, a collection of ottomans and side tables, charcoal muslin and a long-stemmed bouquet…

A Styled Shoot to push the limits, stand out in the crowd, and a little bit daring…

Showcasing the beauty in black and white, layered with earthy hues and enhanced by the natural landscape.

Colour palette: A base palette of Bright whites, Stone Greys & Neutral Tones, Teamed with shades of Deep Black & Blue with Organic Foliage and Succulents.

Our styled shoot takes place at Maleny Manor, a secluded private estate and one of the Sunshine Coast’s most prestigious wedding venues.

The concept behind the ceremony was to create a white on white oasis, featuring our modern diamond backdrop that stands out but still allows the beauty of the valley to shine through.  We kept this setting clean and contemporary with white wire chairs lining either side of the aisle and a simple, sleek white registry setting focusing on the florals cascading down the table and spilling out onto the floor.

A large tent sitting on the edge of the valley showcases a contemporary dining experience! Featuring white timber tables with black legs placed in a half hexagon shape creating a complete geometric & daring feel. The tables were filled with black and white plates, matte black cutlery, stone grey napkins, crystal cut wine glasses, black candlesticks, succulents and assorted cacti in black, white & concrete pots with desert-inspired greenery. A cool and contemporary lounge setting was completed with a neutral toned linen chesterfield, cows hide rug, white side table and beautiful black and white feature cushions. A low-set floral installation hung from the centre of the tent framing the lounge space and completing this look. To showcase the diversity and size of the tent, we created a bar and cocktail space using a sleek white and charcoal bar, a white square high bar teamed with white wire high bar chairs, charcoal bucket seats with side tables and finished off with fiddleleaf plants and florals.

Maleny Manors white arbour featured a decadent grazing dessert bar. A sleek white trestle table and a long charcoal board formed the basis of the bar. A selection of small desserts inspired by a grazing platter with pops of deep blue, stone greys and fruity elements covered the board from left to right.

What inspired this shoot?

I fell in love with Moroccan wedding blankets, their incredible detailing, those antique sequins, all the family hands that go into making one blanket, and what that blanket stands for to a new bride. The purchase of my own Moroccan wedding blanket, then led onto the purchase of some new Moroccan pieces for Lovebird Weddings which just naturally took the form for our shoot.

Were there any particular items on your inspiration board?

The wedding blanket, lots of natural wooden furniture, comfy cushions, leather pouffs, and lanterns.

What was the colour palette?

The base colour palette is very neutral featuring Ivory, Cream, Champagne, Brushed Gold, Natural Timbers and Organic Foliage

This was then teamed with delicate pops of Warm Copper & Burnt Orange, Garnet, Eggplant and Indigo Blue.

How would you describe the style of this shoot?

Moroccan-infused, elegant, luscious, on location

Infused with Moroccan style, and set amongst a manicured Australian macadamia farm, this shoot layers colours, flavours, foliage and fabrics to create relaxed luxury. 

What were the key stylistic and decor elements?

The ceremony was created using the lake pontoon feature on this incredible private macadamia farm…muslin softened and floated into the water, and we used an antique wooden bench seat to create the altar piece, Persian carpets to bring depth and comfort to the floor and a decadent floral design to bring all the elements together as one piece. Hanging plants also added to the luscious feeling of the altar space.

The garden party setting was created within a tipi which provided a cosy space in which to build an oversized lounge setting. Lots of greenery and comfy cushions and leather pouffs were teamed with an antique lounge setting, recently reupholstered.

A bride and grooms chill out space was created across the lake, and this is where we used the Moroccan wedding rug as a key feature, along with wooden pallets to create a head to our day bed.

We wanted to create an intimate reception setting up the macadamia rows, with a feasting feel about the table. Lots of textures created this setting, including wooden tables, rattan place mats and napkin rings, copper cutlery and hand-written name cards and menus…plus lots of texture throughout the floral vessels and lanterns. Another element on top of this was the food platters, all vintage trays filled with bright a colourful share food. How did you put them together to create the overall mood and atmosphere?

The key to this style I felt was the multiple layering, comfy textiles, and the use of a lot of greenery.

How important was the location to the finished product?

The location was a perfect canvas to work with offering a variety of its own textures via the lake, the hut on the lake, macadamia rows, and manicured lawns surrounded by some exquisite native trees. It is one of our new favourite venues.

What kind of mood were you trying to create?

Relaxed decadence

What kind of bride do you imagine might have this type of wedding?

I think that this bride would be looking for an outdoor wedding, but not too wild – this location is groomed, and therefore, luxurious in its own right. This style suits an intimate wedding, with the bride wanting to create the feeling of relaxed decadence with an international flavour.

Why did you want to create this shoot?

I wanted to do something that bought international inspiration to a gorgeous Australian setting and I have a passion for Moroccan food and styling, so this helped!

Did you incorporate any cakes?

The cakes were all created using Moroccan flavours and textures. Things like rich caramels, figs, and then pistachios and pomegranates really bought the tastes of Morocco through.

Any particular highlights or funny moments from the shoot?

As with any styling job, to push the boundaries, we really do walk on the wild side and yes, when working on a pontoon, there was bound to be one moment of recklessness and yes, someone is bound to get wet!

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.
